    The Mysterious Affair at Styles introduces Hercule Poirot, mystery fiction's greatest detective. Dapper, brilliant Monsieur Poirot, retired as the Chief of Belgian Police, is summoned to a magnificent English country estate to solve a murder. The victim: a wealthy heiress. The suspects: her fortune-hunting husband, her jealous relatives, even her hired companion. The solution: a deadly scheme that is revealed by the master detective himself.

    Adrian says: "Fantastic - Suchet is the best"
    "Thoroughly Enjoyable!"
    Overall

    Having seen David Suchet in some of the recent TV series based on the books, I was intrigued to see that he was the narrator for this one.

    I found him very enjoyable to listen to, especially his accented voice so recognisable as his screen alter-ego's. It was inspired to recruit his services.

    I fervently hope that further David Suchet-narrated Agatha Christies will become available at Audible.com!

  • The Nanny Diaries

    What do you do when you are a nanny to an obscenely rich Park Avenue matron named X? Mrs. X refuses to do anything for herself, including cook, clean, or take care of her 4-year-old son. You are expected to do everything, including maintaining the mental health of said 4-year-old, even while Mrs. X decides that it is time for a divorce. You'll have to bear up under the strain with wit and panache, even as the boundaries between your working life and your so-called private life blur, merge, and disappear.

    "Excellent"
    Overall

    So genuine that it hews more closely to autobiographical than fictional. A great clash-of-worlds story, with one lovely but doomed child caught in the middle. I felt that it didn't read like a general indictment of the rich but more like a cathartic examination of real-life events.

    Kathe Mazur was a fantastic narrator. She was able to produce a distinctive range of voices so that I knew who was speaking at any given time. She even did a good UK accent. I thought she brought the story to life.

    James says: "Fun to listen, and sometimes I learn stuff"
    "It's a Community, People"
    Overall

    If you listen to this show and it doesn't appeal to you, then you've missed the point. It's about a community of people, a real social event. Dry tech matter is not what is interesting to these people. Broad issues and interaction are what is important.

    I thoroughly enjoy my 2 1/2 hours every week and feel part of something bigger than my own little world.

    A tongue-in-cheek private detective with all the answers...and all the problems! This hilarious sleuth show combines the best of old-time radio acting with modern sound effects, music recording and editing.

    Jason says: "Some Genuine Laughs"
    "Some Genuine Laughs"
    Overall

    I wanted a bit of light humour, so I thought I'd give this book a try. I've been leery of dramatised books, but this title proves that they have merit.

    I like this type of humour. I could describe it as "audio slapstick". Some moments are sheer non sequitur, which unbalances my train of thought and causes some sharp laughs. The accents are engaging. I'm reminded of The Maltese Falcon and Who Framed Roger Rabbit? The half-hour format is useful, as I can listen to one on my way to work and when I go home, I'm not picking up in the middle of anything.

    Overall, an unexpected pleasure.

    "Captures Spirit of the Golden Age"
    Overall

    I've got the paper book collection of these stories. They embody the spirit of the Golden Age of Science Fiction. Hearing this story dramatised gave a very enjoyable, new dimension to the work. I've been reluctant to get into dramatisations, but this story is dear to me and thus I tried it and have discovered a new field of entertainment.

    In particular, I liked the voice of the actor playing Ole Doc. His drawl transported me back to an earlier age. It was perfect.

    The Hitchhicker's Guide to the Galaxy, the first volume in the five-part Hitchhiker "trilogy" made Douglas Adams a science fiction sensation, and is a must-listen for any and all fans of the genre. Don't forget to bring a towel!

    Victor says: "still a winner!!!"
    "Well Worth it"
    Overall

    The fact that the author narrates this book makes it special. I have to admit that I laughed more by reading the book than by listening to this, but it was thoroughly enjoyable in a different way and well worth buying. On the strength of this, I just have to get the remaining books of the trilogy.
