It's in the middle. Not the best, but certainly not the worst!
The love story that developed.
I liked the market place scenes!
It's already a film.
I have read three books by this author, and this one is certainly her best effort.
I think this is Christie's best book. I have read it, listened to it, and seen it performed as a play. I think the plot is solid, and because the characters are all being bumped off on an island, they know the killer is one of their party. It's quite fun to see how they turn on each other, which is typical human behavior. When the going gets tough, the fingers start to point!
Yes, because every few minutes someone is shuffling off their mortal coil!
His reading was very well done. I was slightly doubtful about Stevens doing the reading because most of the Christie books on Audible are performed by Hugh Fraser, who was Captain Hastings in all of the David Suchet "Poirot" films. Solid performance.
No, I listened to this one while walking, so I had to break it up into shorter segments.
The book is intended as a suspense work, so readers who like suspense may enjoy it.
So much tension was built up, but the ending was anti-climatic.
I first saw this book on the shelves of a store in Australia. I read the book jacket, and it promised to be engaging. Right from the start of the work, the reader knows who is killed, who did it, and why. But, it's not until sixty years later that the bodies are discovered and the crime investigated. That worked. What did not work was 70 something year sleuths and their crimes of passion that bordered on the ridiculous.
I did not read the print version, so I cannot offer an opinion about this question.
No, I would not say it kept me on the edge of my seat, but the crimes and characters are engaging.
I love his reading of the book. He is an excellent narrator, and he has such a smooth and calming delivery.
The book is made up of different cases that Sidney Chambers and his friend Detective Inspector Geordie Keating become entangled in. Most of the books feature 4-6 different cases. In this book, I did not like how Sidney got involved in a mystery outside of Grantchester. I do not like his involvement in German affairs. Also, Hildegard is starting to get on my nerves.
I liked some of the cases better than others, but I did not have a favorite this time.
Read the next book in the series.
Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling
Actually, it has been adapted into a PBS mini-series, and I have been watching and enjoying it.
The book is good, but I think James Runcie may be at the end of this series. I just do not know how much more he can do with his vicar turned part-time detective.
I would not recommend this book because it was not enjoyable. The idea of it was good, but in the end, too much time was spent on the main character's drunkenness than on building suspense. The main character became much less sympathetic as the story went along. Plus, I figured out the ending about half-way into the book, and that is never a good thing.
No. Suspense, thriller, and mystery books are my favorite, so I will keep reading in this genre.
The book is told from more than one point-of-view, so I enjoyed "hearing" the different women's perspectives. It made me feel like I got to know the characters more intimately.
I'm afraid not. This book was disappointing because so much hype had been built up about it.
Many compare this book to "Gone Girl," but I do not think they are similar. I had a very hard time getting into "Gone Girl," but this book drew me in. Only, it ended up being disappointing.
Yes. I have enjoyed the mysterious character of Harley Quinn, and I enjoy Mr. Saitherwaite's fussiness.
The work is a set of short stories. You are able to stop after each story, so no.
No, I listened to it while I was out walking, so I was motivated to walk each day until I finished. It gave me something to look forward to.
Yes, because it is the start of all great vampire tales.
I enjoyed the Van Helsing narration best. This was an ensemble performance, and all of them were great.
Already is a film
Unexpected plot twists
Any other Christie work
I have enjoyed listening to Hugh Fraser's performances of Christie's works. I have listened to several, and he does such a great job as narrator.
No, I was okay with drawing it over several sittings. It got a little slow in places, and the ending seemed a little improbable.
