    "The Queen of Crime always makes murder enjoyable"

    Ever since my first introduction to The Queen of Crime, I've loved reading her books. I got this book as a way to read one of my favorite Miss Marple stories again. I loved the dramatized version as I felt I were there! I will always recommend Agatha Christie as an author and now I will recommend any BBC Radio dramatized production.

    What did you like about this audiobook?

    As with all of the BBC radio productions, this one was expertly cast and a thorough delight to listen to.


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    Why do I feel like this question was intended for a non-fiction book? If you haven't listened to one of these full-cast productions, this will probably make you want to check out more of them.


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    Hmmm....another question for a non-fiction book. It seems Mr. Audible thinks A Pocketful of Rye is a book about the history of growing rye in Britain.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    Nothing.
