"The acknowledged queen of detective fiction." (Observer)
"A classic, the book has worthily earned its fame." (Irish Independent)
I didn't know this book before I listed to it and it was a pure delight. The plot was excellent but since we are talking Agatha Christie that is no surprise. The reader, Hugh Fraser, was superb and carefully defined each character well so you always knew who was speaking. The books pace was perfect and left me wanting more. Terrific stuff!
Set within the estate of a wealthy family close to a small village, we have the makings of a classic cluedo style Agatha Christie mystery. With Meetings in the billard room, clues in the study and a cast of characters each with their own little secrets that all come together to enable the detective to solve the identity of the murderer of Roger Ackroyd. Great stuff!!!
Hugh Fraser does an excellent narration of this Agatha Christie story. If you don't know the story, it really is an example of a mystery that will keep you guessing until the end and even if you do know the ending - it is great fun to spot the clues that Christie puts along the way.
"Totally unexpected ending"
Up with the best
Kept me thinking, but not on the edge of my seat
I was shocked at the ending
Agatha Christie is always an enjoyable read
"A Wonderful Poirot Story"

Think he does a wonderful job conveying Poirot
No - just solid old-fashioned mystery.
