Agatha Raisin

20170119_154253After a recommendation from another mystery fan, I’m reading my very first Agatha Raisin.

M.C. Beaton’s storytelling is smooth and enjoyable, but I haven’t quite clicked with Mrs. Raisin herself. The character is funny, yes, but she’s also a bit grumpy, petty and even rude.

Still, the expansive series has a huge following, so I won’t give up. I might find myself in the fan ranks before the end.

  1. I must admit I’ve never been able to become a proper fan of Agatha Raisin either, though I’ve tried! I listened to an audiobook version a year or two back with the wonderful Penelope Keith narrating in the hope that that would do the trick, and it helped a little, but I still just can’t seem to love her… Hope you have more success!

      1. Absolut unglabuliche REzi! Mirg efällt auch der Ton, den die Dame anschlägt Super!! Glückwunsch! Naja und lass dich vom – nicht erhaltenen – Delia bloß nicht runterziehen. Wir wissen doch alle, wie subjektiv diese Sachen sind. Und alles passiert aus einem GRund, den man vorher gar nicht weiß. Vielleicht sollte die Jury nicht &#&xn0;A2gefi2t8#8221; werden *G* Ich liebe dieses Wort *G*

  2. Nice idea. Lets hope there are blogs in 14 years time I agree that long time planning is the only way to go to get a solid base. When I first started making websites 7 years ago I was thinking 2-3 months ahead. If I knew then what I know now about long ahead planning I would be a multi millionare for sure. So just 7 more yer#2&a8s30;

  3. I ha e to admit that I’ve read all of the Agatha Raisin mysteries–more than once. I don’t like the way she chased after just about anything in pants but I love the descriptions of the Cotswald, the cottages and just the English village life. I just wonder if you have seen the tv series ? If so , did you like it?
