Superb dramatisation of this Agatha Christie classic. Thoroughly enjoyable in every aspect. Cast are tremendous. Miss Marple, as ever, outwits the authorities and solves the crime! Delightfully twee! Highly recommended.

Enjoyed!

I typically do bot care for dramatizations of Christie's works as they are often overly dramatic and the music too loud. This one was neither. It was just fine. I enjoyed the story and the the dramatization both.

Agatha does it again!

Although this is not a long story, around 1 hour 30 minutes, it's a very good story. The plot is very good and character development is top notch. I thoroughly enjoyed it and heartily recommend it.

Great dramatization of a classic Agatha

Would you consider the audio edition of The Body in the Library (Dramatised) to be better than the print version?

Both print and audio editions are good. I read this printed many times and I found the audio edition equally entertaining.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

still good even having read it many times before
