"Poirot solves another exciting case." (Daily Mail)
David Suchet is a surprisingly bad narrator. He is a wonderful Poirot, or course, but his voice for other characters is very poor, stilted, accents weak. Not a patch on Hugh Fraser's narration.
I enjoyed the story a lot more than I thought. However, the poor quality of narration really spoiled it for me, especially with it being David Suchet whom I admire as an actor.
When the cunning of the murderer was revealed.
No. I liked the story but not that much.
I do wonder if the problem was with the narrator or a problem with the audio recording itself.
It was classical hercule
It met my expectation however I still believe that Hugh Fraser should narrate the books. Suchet was good but sometimes distracting.
Excellent story but David Suchet is thoroughly irritating - the last word of a sentence disappears and the rhythm of sentences is idiosyncratic. The use of falsetto is not much of a pleasure, either.
Yes and I already have. Well told narrative, with excellent character profiling. A great tale by Agatha Christie.
"A worthwhile listen"
Worth listening for its story and characters.
I'm keen to read more Christie for the setting, mystery, and characters.
David Suchet is excellent - I'm choosing Christie novels based on his brilliant performances! This one did not disappoint.
