Summary

Nulla è come sembra, in questa avvincente versione audiolibro di "Se morisse mio marito", uno dei romanzi gialli più riusciti, della celebre Agatha Christie. E pure l'illustrissimo, intelligentissimo e insuperabile Hercule Poirot s'inganna, facendosi ammaliare prima dalle parole della bellissima Jane Wilkinson, e dall'interpretazione migliore della sua carriera, e poi dal candore della giovane Geraldine, e dall'avidità dell'affascinante Carlotta Adams.

Palcoscenici sfavillanti, divi del cinema, e nobili ricchissimi, gravitano nella Londra mondana degli anni trenta, dove una serie di inquietanti omicidi, metteranno alla prova il fiuto del celebre investigatore, creato dalla penna della scrittrice di gialli, più famosa al mondo. Le ambientazioni, il sound design e i bravissimi attori che hanno interpretato l'audiolibro, vi coinvolgeranno nell'intricata vicenda dal finale a sorpresa.

One of Christie’s best novels in clear Italian.

I don’t much like the background music which seems to accompany Audiobooks in Italian I’ve heard, but the narrators speak clearly (manic laughter apart!) which is important if you’re listening to a book in a third language.
The familiar format and context are useful for a language learner, and the novel is amongst Christie’s best - she did write some dreadful potboilers!
Unfortunately the Italian versions seem to have retained some attitudes we now find offensive, redacted from Anglophone editions, which shock more than the murders!
I don’t know if the well-to-do or aristocracy of “old England” were as obnoxious as she portrays them, and since their world, if it ever existed as she writes it, has long gone with the wind, I prefer to take them as interesting aliens.
