Audible listener who's grateful for a long commute!
Late one hot, humid summer growing up in Minneapolis, I read all of Agatha Christie's Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot mysteries. The Hennepin County Library sent a Bookmobile to our South Minneapolis neighborhood. It was walking distance close to a lovely lake, but no where near a brick and mortar library. On Tuesday evenings, I'd check out a stack of Christie paperbacks, and exchange them a week later for new books.
This performance of "Death on the Nile" (1937) was a nice reminder of that long ago time. It's a radio play, rather than a narration of the 288 page novel. The book had a host of characters - and suspects - that are edited and combined for this adaptation. It was a good decision, but there are still enough potential culprits to make the listen good. I knew the "who dunnit" going in, but with the notable exception of Christie's "Mousetrap" (1947, radio play, 1952 - present, West End Play), it's hard for any classic mystery fan not to know the ending to a Christie mystery. The enjoyment is in the telling and the listen.
