Agatha Raisin? Not so much.
She's vain. Passive-aggressive. Egotistical. Needy. Grumpy. Selfish. Bad-tempered. A braggart. A snob and a reverse snob, simultaneously. Addicted to lousy relationships with men. She's a thoroughly dysfunctional person, not in a fascinating and high-flown psychiatrically-diagnosable way, but in a very irrational, everyday, prosaic sort of way. Her only non-dysfunctional relationship is with her cats.
Cats are selfish. Self-centered. Egotistical. Hedonistic. Completely lacking in any desire to please. And a delight to watch and to know. Maybe this explains my otherwise inexplicable liking for Agatha.
