Excellent and a double treat

Two excellent Poirot mysteries, great Agatha Christie novels. I enjoyed the narration, though at times Poirot sounded a little more Rastafarian than Belgian. Mind you, anyone who has to follow David Suchet’s portrayal of Poirot has big shoes to fill. But I would definitely recommend!

Bad!

I have seen, read and listened to this book quite a few times now but the Belgian accent for poirot in this version is so bad that I don't think I will be able to finish listening. Something I have never done yet with an audible book!

Wonderful!!! A fantastic deal for the price!

Superb narration of two Christie classics! And no wonder. James Warwick starred in the Tommy and Tuppence series on PBS with the great Francesca Annis. The reviews said he really nails Poirot and they were right. I loved this version - putting the two together was inspired - both wonderful Christie classics. A delight!
