    There's Rosemary, that's for remembrance. Published in 1945, "Sparkling Cyanide" is all about remembrance. It begins with six characters recalling the horrific death of Rosemary Barton, a beautiful but shallow young heiress poisoned by a cyanide-spiked glass of champagne whilst celebrating her birthday at a smart London restaurant.

    Cheryl Waters says: "Good performance/Typical Christie plot"

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    BBC productions always rate highly, especially on sale.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Most interesting is the mathematical possibilities between four couples...

    Least interesting is why points of view are limited until the denouement...


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Where the poisoning occurs..."Black Coffee" is another example.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    My disappointment was not in the performances, but in the plot, which was not predictable due to hidden information...A second listening may prove me wrong...


    Any additional comments?

    Still a good buy and proof that troupe performances make for good entertainment!
