Twelve BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisations of short stories by the Queen of Crime.
©2016 Agatha Christie (P)2016 Random House AudioBooks
I was a bit disappointed in finding out that this is just a repackaged version of the BBC dramatisations that came out in 2010 . Some of them are good but some of them are just fair . Perhaps it is because I just didn't like some of the stories . The only good thing about this audio is that you get all 12 stories at once instead of having to purchase them separately on this same site .
A great listen without needing to listen for hours
No particular favourite
It made me listen to updated versions to old stories
I was expecting a lot more of the classic Christie experience instead a collection of very short melodramatic stories that didn't really go anywhere.
I don't often like updates of Agatha Christie's work, I prefer them set in their original decades. However this volume has been updated with care and is still a joy to listen to

These have nothing to do with Agatha Christie. A waste of a valuable credit.
"Too Little Provided"
I love myself some Agatha Christie Mysteries. I try, but I haven't won a case yet! This production didn't do her justice. It didn't include enough of the mystery to make it enjoyable. It skipped too much. Just didn't help connect the dots. More frustrating than enjoyable.
Short stories alone were disappointing but the effort to recreate in a modern time was contradictions of all things Agatha Christie.
"New Stories. Well Performed."
I had only heard one of the stories before. They varied from drama to comedy to supernatural. Most were not murder mysteries but I enjoyed them all.
"Murder of Agatha's style "
They changed so much it's not worth it. I have listened to very many of her books but it's by far the worst.
"BBC has another wonderful production"
Agatha Christie with mostly modern adaptations--absolutely brilliant! You will love these short stories. The voice actors truly bring her magnificent writing to life member
"Not what I was expecting"
The acting and narration were great. The stories simply weren't interesting. Each mystery lasted about a half hour, and was populated by 2 to 4 characters - making the plot easy to decipher. In addition to this, plots were updated for modern consumption (cell phones and internet). I was not impressed.
Modern stories with modern themes. Not enjoyable. Cast does a nice job. Not what I expected.
"Good stories not yet heard"
Shorter length perfect for bedtime
Mix of stories plot lines
Good as always
Always well constructed and holds your interest
