I love Hugh Fraser's performance of the world's greatest detective. I like him more than David Suchet on audio.
As with most of Dame Agatha's books I like the twists and her reliable cast of characters.
The listener truely gets a sense of how Perot feels about himself. Mr. Fraser makes you love him in spite of his arrogance and pompous nature.
Every fan of this author loves the "Agatha Christie Moment". That part of the book where all the characters are gathered and the detective procedes to explain the crime and expose the wrong doer.
While I highly recommend this and all of Agatha Christie's books, if you are new to this author I recommend "The ABC Murders" first.
NEW Imaginative Fun
Interview With A Vampire. I compare the two for only two reasons 1) They are set in Louisiana and 2) They both introduce a new mytholgy with original, adult characters.
Her beautiful southerm accent was perfect for Sookie. She was pitch perfect.
It has sort of been done,but " Vampires Come Out of the Casket" might work.
I look forward to continuing the series.
This is one of Christie's best novels. Poirot is brilliant and engaging, the mystery is thoughful, the characters are from Dame Agatha's usual repertoire, but I love them and the ending is most unpredictable.
I really like this book and Hugh Fraser is flawless, but I wonder why Dame Agatha barely used her greatest detective. Poirot does very little in this book. If you listen closely, very closely you can solve the crime yourself. I love it when I get to the last chapter and am right about the killer!
An excellent reading of an obsorbing history.
The Life Of Elizabeth I.
You will probably want to bye the other two volumes.
