    (50)

    Beautiful young Elinor Carlisle stood serenely in the dock, accused of the murder of Mary Gerrard, her rival in love. The evidence was damning: only Elinor had the motive, the opportunity, and the means to administer the fatal poison. Yet, inside the hostile courtroom, only one man still presumed Elinor was innocent until proven guilty: Hercule Poirot was all that stood between Elinor and the gallows.

    "One of my favorite A. Christie stories"

    If you could sum up Sad Cypress in three words, what would they be?

    melancholy, suspenseful


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main character - Elinor Carlisle


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    No. I am sorry, I loved Poirot, but overall the narration did not match my idea about the story. This is one of my favorite Agatha Christie books and I like to re-read it every few years or so, so I have very definite ideas about the mood of the book. I've always thought that the overall mood is monotone, detached and melancholy and I think that the performer over-acted in many instances.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I wasn't able to listen to the book all in one sitting
