I had never read these stories before. I loved them. I believe that this book is a watered down version for younger readers. Very fun and sometimes funny. The stories are short and quick. I liked it so much that I am going look for a version closer to the original translations.
Written in a very poetic and Homeric manner. Unfortunately for me..I was never good at reading Homer. I was only able to understand what was going on based on that movie Troy with Brad Pitt (don't laugh..I love that flick) and what little I knew about Greek mythology. I still don't understand most of what I read in this book...short as it was. Oh well. Maybe you poetic types will like this one. I like the idea of the story. But I need common language to grasp it. Sorry Ms. Cook.
Wow! A shocking and gritty story of a young girl who is half white half Indian. She is tough and fragile. A self mutilating scene may be a bit too graphic for very young children. It's an adventure story of sorts, but very dark.
I can't help but adore Agatha Raisin. She is hilarious and tough. She always gets herself into a mess and stumbles her ways out...but manages to solve the mystery. I am off to read about her next predicament!!!
As always, I adore Agatha Raisin. She is her usual self...trying to force the police to admit that she is the one helping solve the murder cases. This, of course, puts her in danger....again! And as always she struggles with getting older. She is grumpy and bold and absolutely my favorite character! Donada Peters reads this book and does an awesome job bringing the characters to life with her wonderful ability to change her accents...who knew English had so many?
This audio book was read by Donada Peters. She does an awesome job of bringing these hilarious characters to live. Agatha Raisin is a great old gal. I compare this author to Agatha Christie. Highly enjoyable.
Poor Agatha! She finally has James, but is it worth it? How can she keep loving him when he lies to her, cheats on her, puts her down, and drops her in the middle of a murder mystery and is no where to be found? Agatha always seems pessimistic, but really, she's a dreamer. Gotta love her!!
While I love Agatha Raisin, I didn't enjoy this one as much as the other books. I think because it was set in Cyprus and most of the beloved characters of Carsley are not in this story. I am still rooting for Agatha and glad that she is back home in the Cotswolds.
Oh, Agatha!! Yet again trying to find an easy way to get what she wants. She goes to a local witch to get a hair growth tonic to quickly grow the hair she lost from the last book. And of course she just has to get a love potion for the forever out of reach James Lacey. She is truly funny and clever in this 10th book. I just love her!!
