I love christie audiobooks, but have to say this one disappointed. To many clues were only available in the summation. So no chance for the reader to play sleuth effectively
I enjoyed the book and loved the introduction to Poirot
Reads the book superbly, can't fault his performance
A classic Agatha Christie novel beautifully narrated by Hugh Fraser. Although I do find Poirot rather insufferable (my problem, I know), the story is engaging and kept me guessing about all the "insignificant" clues. Thoroughly enjoyed listening to it whilst baking!
Mrs A - - I'm a school librarian - I need to read more grown up books :-)
As with many Christie books, there are so many characters, it is hard to keep track of who is who and who has done what! At least with the TV/Film adaptations there is a face to the name.
This was the 2nd Christie book I had "read" and it may be sacrilege to say, but I found it a little dull and to be fair, if you had all the information on the ‘who-done-it’, it would be easy to detect the killer.
I was disappointed. I was determined to read or listen to all of her books this year as a personal challenge and I have given up after 6 - dare I say it??
Yes - I dare…. They are boring!
