I'm a huge fan of all the BBC radio full-cast adaptations of Dame Agatha's books.
Check out the BBC version of "Murder in Mesopotamia" for another winner.
John Moffatt's Poirot is wonderfully fun.
I loved how Poirot took an interest in the love life of the lovely Miss Grey.
I haven't yet read the print edition, but I very much enjoyed Hugh Fraser's performance.
The limited pool of suspects made for an interesting whodunnit.
The end of a Christie book is always a favorite.
I chuckled in a few places, mostly due to Mr. Fraser's charming voices.
I would, as it's a well-written and well-performed example of a compelling series.
Pretty much every scene with Morris in it is memorable.
The brainstorming at the bridal shower scene was memorable.
No, but it did make me feel much sympathy for Morris, who has always been one of my favorite characters of the series.
It's a solid example of the story and pacing of all the "In Death" series books.
Eve, of course. She and Roarke are wonderful characters.
Polished, interesting, lively
Not really, but I thought the suspect interviews at the end were very well done.
If I knew someone liked the "In Death" series, I would definitely recommend this.
The sense of tension and a good cat-and-mouse plot.
I really enjoy her as Eve Dallas. She does a nice job of capturing both her good and bad sides.
No, but it was an enjoyable story and one I'd listen to again.
I was very impressed with Emily Durante's performance. Her character voices were individual and lively and made the whole book a delight.
Check out the rest of the Brides quartet. Nora Roberts does it again.
Warm, personal, engaging.
Sometimes it's hard to see what's right in front of you.
It's hard to compare as this is part of a series and all of the JD Robb books on audio are captivating and well-performed.
You really can't go wrong with any Eve Dallas/Rourke book.
Towards the end of the book, Eve's team really comes together and that sense of "family" was really nice to have.
Yes, but it took me a bit as I was listening on a commute.
Yes, I would. The story was interesting but it was the performance of the great Benedict Cumberbatch that makes it such a great listen.
Chief Inspector Roderick Alleyn is such a great character, both on the pages and in this audio version. He's charming, intelligent, witty, and a man of great character.
He really brought out the humor in some of the interchanges between the feuding families. The tones of voice, inflection, pacing, all added to the light touch.
Fishing for the truth.
I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good "cozy" mystery without any gore or intricate plotting. It's a nice, light read, perfect for a road trip.
The BBC adaptation of "Death in the Clouds" was similar in terms of strong performances and engaging plot.
The performances were all quite good and very well cast. Each fit well with the character.
No extreme reaction, but it was nicely enjoyable.
David Suchet's excellent performance of all the characters really brought the story to life.
I really enjoyed the lead-up to the murder, meeting all the characters and finding out all the motives people might have.
He has a wonderful knack of creating believable and individual voices for each character and has a very light touch with the more humorous bits.
No, I wanted to savor it.
Whose to blame?
I loved how the perspectives shifted from the people in the valley and the rich folks at the fishing & hunting club.
I really enjoyed the build up to the flood for its fascinating insights into class differences and the mistakes that lead up to the weakness of the dam.
The people on the mountain. The people in the valley.
