The Mysterious Affair at Styles | [Agatha Christie]

The Mysterious Affair at Styles

Recently, there had been some strange goings on at Styles St Mary. Evelyn, constant companion to old Mrs Inglethorp, had stormed out of the house muttering something about "a lot of sharks". And with her, something indefinable had gone from the atmosphere. Her presence had spelt security; now the air seemed rife with suspicion and impending evil.

    "Hidden clues"

    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

    "Not bad, but one of her best"
    Where does The Mysterious Affair at Styles rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I enjoyed the book and loved the introduction to Poirot


    Have you listened to any of Hugh Fraser’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Reads the book superbly, can't fault his performance

    "Old Favourites"

    I started reading Agatha Christie over 40 years ago, still enjoy them as much today, particularly in this format.

    "Classic Christie"

    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!

    "Yawn!"

    Oh please....
    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!
