I enjoyed both versions. The audio edition version has merit because it brings the characters to life. It is like listening to a play.
I like the nurse who narrated the story. I thought the solution to the mystery was plausible but unexpected.
I have listened to all of his audio book portrayals of this character. He is a very competent Hercules Poirot.
A deadly mix of mystery and archaeology.
I like the stories set in exotic locales. I also liked the archaeology aspects of the story.
The BBC Agatha Christie dramatizations are at the top of my list.
Any of the other dramatizations starring John Moffatt as Hercules Poirot such as The Three Act Tragedy.
John Moffatt performs Poirot. Various actors do the other parts.
No but I found the mystery to be a bit sad and melancholy. These emotions added to the texture and atmosphere of the story.
This is a well done psychological mystery with intriguing characters and a good plot.
Although Elinor is a less than traditional heroine, she works well in this story. I like her interactions with her aunt, her boyfriend and her rival. Well worth listening to.
Yes. The fantastic vocals add so much to the story.
I always like Poirot and Ariadne Oliver. In this book I particularly liked the victim, Marlene Tucker. She was whiny and pathetic but entertaining. I also liked old Mrs. Folliat who is the key to so much of the story.
Ariadne Oliver by Julia McKenzie. She is a version of Agatha herrself and one of my favorite characters. Julia brings forth her scanty nature and makes her very appealing.
It's always foolish to commit murder.
Another great BBC dramatization. This is one of my favorite stories because it has Poirot, Ariadne Oliver and a murder hunt. All of the characters are intriguing. Well worth a listen.
