A great 20th century novel read brilliantly by Colin Firth. Please, put in front of the microphone again and again.
And Then There Were None is classic Agatha Christie, an author whose unique skills in deftly defining each character enables her readers to identify with at least one of the protagonists and so to virtually live within the story. Hugh Fraser is outstanding, bringing to life a large cast of both men and women from disparate social milieu. The listener is confused by miscues, occasionally confident of a solution, then shocked by the unexpected twists that build uncertainty on uncertainty. The ultimate resolution is implausible, but it's been great fun to be a part of it all!
I would especially recommend this high style/minimal gore audiobook for friends unfamiliar with the English mystery as a genre.
Elegantly narrated and beautifully written . . . another wonderful book by Wendell Berry. Susan Denaker's understated Hannah is utterly believable and deeply moving. Even though I'm not Southern, I heard my grandmother's voice and was glad.
