With my apologies to Miss Christie and Mr. Lee - I can only truthfully rate this book with three stars. At the beginning the chapters are fresh and interesting, as the book progresses some themes repeat themselves, as does the style of narration. For full enjoyment, I would recommend splitting the book up along a longer time period, otherwise... boredom is lurking on the horizon :-(
"Perfect late night listening"
I love Agatha Christie and as I work through her catalogue - knowing that eventually there will be no more - it becomes a real treat to come across a collection of stories to listen to here and there.
Wonderfully narrated and indulgently creepy it's great last thing at night listening.
"Worth the time"
Being an avid fan of Agatha I am easily swayed into giving her good reviews. Worth the time to listen, before drifting off into the land of nod.
Christopher Lee is fantastic. He does so many different voices you forget it's one person, even the female voices are good and not in too high falsetto! I liked to listen at night with a candle lit by my bed and my own hound close by... Great for cold evenings by a fireside... Or on warm evenings when you wish it was snowing. This is a masterpiece and Christopher Lee brings the story to life, the fact that he was Dracula in Hammer adds a certain je me sais pas quoi.... Creeeeeaak......
