Publisher's Summary

The tranquillity of a cruise along the Nile was shattered by the discovery that Linnet Ridgeway had been shot through the head. She was young, stylish, and beautiful. A girl who had everything...until she lost her life. Hercule Poirot recalled an earlier outburst by a fellow passenger: "I'd like to put my dear little pistol against her head and just press the trigger." Yet in this exotic setting nothing was ever quite what it seemed.

    "David Suchet narrating Poirot is a must!"

    Superb narration of one of my favourite Poirot stories. Poirot is brought to life in this retelling.

    "A generally pleasant listen."

    Would recommend this book to a friend but it does require some suspension of disbelief. Also the characters are very Christie and whether or not you see that as positive or negative is up to you.

    "Excellence all round......"

    This is a fairly well-known Christie story from the film version with Peter Ustinov and, I think , better production with David Suchet as the famous Hercules Poirot.
    This audio version is fantastic. I found myself totally engaged with the wonderful David Suchetacting all of the parts

    "Spell Binding"

    It's an oldie but a goodie and I find Suchet expands his range of characters and accents to excellent effect here, especially considering several of the characters are women. A really enjoyable book.

    "Unmissable for fans of Suchet's Poirot"

    For those like myself who are fans of David Suchet's Poirot, this is a must-have. Suchet's performance as Poirot, Bessner, Doyle and Race are outstanding, bringing to life one of the highlights of Poirot's career.

    Story
    "Bring back Hugh Fraser"

    While David Suchet is excellent as Poirot, he's not great at the other voices. Colonel Race, who is a viable leading man in 'The Man in the Brown Suit' is read as a ghastly, military type of the worst kind. All the voices kind of grated through the story, which is a shame as it's a good read normally

    Story
    "Poirot read by Suchet - this could never go wrong!"

    David Suchet is practically synonymous with Agatha Christie's Poirot, so it's simply wonderful that this audiobook is read by Suchet. His characterisations are perfect, subtle and entertaining, which make these audiobooks great listening. Dive in and enjoy this tale of mystery and murder of the picturesque River Nile, you'll be spellbound.

    Story
    "I Loved it!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Death on the Nile to be better than the print version?

    i enjoyed listening to this story on my iphone laying in my hammock sipping on a pims


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the clever twists in this story and of course the characters are colorful and vivid.


    Have you listened to any of David Suchet’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    David Suchet has come to be the voice of Poirot for me, his narration of the this classic transported me to a time i never knew yet fell in love with.

    "A beautiful story, masterfully told."
    What did you love best about Death on the Nile?

    Different to the movie in telling ways, but excellent.


    What does David Suchet bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His profiling of the characters through his expressive voice brings them to life in a special way.
