I've read Murder on the Orient Express before, but I wanted to have it as audio book as well.
After having listened Six Degrees of Assasination which had amazing quality, I was rather disappointed of the quality of it. Sound was off, it was too quiet (almost had to have the volume on max) and some sounds were super loud. I did test it on both android and PC.
But the casting was good, Hercule Poirot was amazing!

That night, visions mocked Vol’jin. He found himself in the midst of fighters, each of whom he recognized. He’d gathered them for that final assault on Zalazane, to end his madness and free the Echo Isles for the Darkspears. Each of the combatants took on aspects of a jihui cube, faced to be at their maximum power. Not a fireship among them, but this did not surprise Vol’jin.

He will face death-defying tasks, dragons, and dark wizards, but with the help of his best friends, Ron and Hermione, he might just make it through - alive!

In his first ever Divination class, Professor Trelawney sees an omen of death in Harry's tea leaves....
