I enjoyed the twists and turns, and the intricate plot lines. I like the stories where Christie developes her characters to this extent. One of the 'kinder, gentler' mysteries.
Hsu 's narrative is well written. An interesting weave of his search for his heritage, a quick history of China, and a tutorial on Chinese porcelain. Hsu storytelling skills are amazing. I began the book wanting to know the resolution, and as I continued, Hsu drew me into the journey. The resolution became unimportant. I'm a mystery story buff, so not needing the resolution means Hsu did a great job communicating his experience. I also learned much about the Chinese culture. I recommend this book as a great cross of history and personal story.
The Tommy and Tuppence books are refreshing and fun. The interplay between the two is quite fun. Tuppence has spunk and Tommy is self depreciating. The story line is, of course, similar to AC's other stories, a whodunit, but fun with these two.
This was a fun re-listen. There are many characters, and the plot twists and turns.
I very much enjoy Joan Hickson's narration. I like hearing her very aged voice, and her slight lisp. She makes me feel like I am in the story - maybe because hers is not the perfect, modern, expected voice.
The story is one of my favorites. I enjoyed the varied characters, most of whom Christie made me like! And the outcome was not obvious to me. A fun listen, and re-listen.
Characters well developed
It was fun to get to know all the people, and just keep guessing 'who done it.'
I thoroughly enjoy Hugh Fraser's narrations.
The twist at the end is a bit sad, and deep.
