Marvellous Marple!

Another excellent bunch of stories/plays which again has sated my Mrs Christie addiction. Excellent dramatisations with Miss Marple played by June Whitefield and an excellent cast supporting her. Nemesis has always been my favourite Christie book and I was 'fair chuffed' to see it was included in this set which also included some lesser known works by the author. Overall and excellent listen.

To listen to this I sat on my favourite comfy chair, grabbed a hot chocolate, shut the rain out and didn't move till I had heard them all! A perfect day :)

Love the stories - hate the adverts

I have no idea why this audiobook has 2 minute long adverts for this very product (as well as the Poirot audiobooks) between each story. I've tried to contact BBC studios directly about this - but there doesn't seem to be an easy channel for this feedback. Ruins what is an otherwise good set of dramatisations.

Where is the original?

Excellent productions which really took me back to my childhood. It was fantastic to share these with my children who are now great fans too.

Confusingly though this is “More” which surely signifies that there is an original Marple Casebook? This however is nowhere to be found. Please Audible will you hurry up and get the rest on the site? Thanks

Ruined by adverts

I think it is ridiculous that, having paid for an audiobook, I then have to listen to a two minute advert - not just once, but repeated in between each individual play. Ruined an otherwise good audiobook.

Perfect for Marple Fans

Sit back, grab a cuppa and put your feet up.

Dive into the world of Miss Marple with the wonderfully produced series of stories written by the Queen of Crime. Christies' unparalleled work has been brought to life for you to enjoy.

Splendid!

Anytime short stories from the queen of whodunnit. Wonderfully cast and played. A joy to listen to. Bedtime, walking the dog gardening and boring jobs, these short stories are perfect. My only complaint is the manner in which Audible chapter the books! One does not know where one book start and the next finishes. Very irritating if you listen at bed time and fall asleep! The timer is useless as the chapter times bare no relation to the book length!
Don’t let this put you off. The BBC has done a brilliant job of recording the dramas.

Too little of good thing

I love these dramatised adaptations that bring ACs books to life. These are spectacularly done but too short!

Would love to have them longer because that is how good they are!

A wonderful performance

For fans of mystery and a time period when people were more civilized, more well read.

Great BBC radio productions

June Whitfield is wonderful and the rest of the cast is terrific. Yes, these stories are abridged but faithful to Ms. Christie. The only negative for me is that inspector Slack is always David Horvitch.

Always a treat to hear her books

Alls I can say is. I. Love. Miss. Marple. Agatha Christie had to be one of my favorite authors of all times. Hey boss were before their time in my opinion. I'll read a Agatha Christie book before a lot of these others out here.
