It was difficult to start because it sounded like it would be only appeal to junior high kids. But it turned out to be one of those teen books that adults can enjoy too. After the author introduces the characters and starts the main part of the story, it becomes very entertaining. Also, the books get better as you go on in the series because there is more drama. There is humor in this book; it isn't nearly as dark as the Hunger Games.
I am glad I read the last book. But I must say I did not like the very last part of the ending. Just beware...this isn't the "everybody is happy" type of feeling you got after the last Harry Potter series.
I have finished all of the Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple books and am now going through all the novels that stand alone. This novel was not one of her best but I do not regret listening to it. It was actually pretty interesting, but having listened to so many excellent works of hers, a work that is only just good pales by comparison. (Sorry for the poor grammar; I'm too tired to fix it.)
I'm very biased as I absolutely love Agatha Christie, but this one will not disappoint. There are very few Christie mysteries that I wouldn't rate a 5 star. The only one so far that I have only enjoyed partially is The Big Four.
The narrator sounds like an elderly British woman, probably because Miss Marple is an elderly British woman. When I first listened to it, I didn't think I would like her but I soon grew accustomed to her and she is good at changing character.
