Good story, terrible editing

3 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 28-08-11

A good story (4 stars) and well read, but hard to listen to because of the editing errors mentioned by previous reviewers - far too many instances of the narrator repeating a sentence to tidy up a mistake and the original mistake not being edited out.

I'll get more of these, but really hope the quality improves on the other books in the series.

Wrong Reader, Good Stories

4 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 16-04-08

A good collection of stories, but beware if you're a fan of Hugh Fraser and don't listen to the preview before buying. This collection is actually read by David Suchet (Poirot in the TV series) and NOT Fraser.

The stories themselves are good and varied, ideal to dip in and out of. Much less 'murder mystery' and more towards the Jewel heist type story than Christie's other books, but all are well written with satisfying endings. Recommended then, but again, listen to the preview before buying
