    A classic detective mystery lover. Especially mysteries taking place in quaint English villages!

    Story
    "Short but sweet!"
    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    While this is a good collection of short mysteries, many of which have been dramatized for television quite successfully, I miss the more leisurely read of the longer Agatha Christie works.

    The colorful worlds and characters she invites us into are too quickly gone leaving me feeling less satisfied at the end than I have been with others of her stories. Don't get me wrong, she still has the knack of writing a compelling short story but I guess I was left wanting more at the end of these.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Perhaps the best use of this book would be for someone looking for a short but fun diversion whilst on short car trips or for someone wanting a little "bedtime story". If that is your goal then you will most likely thoroughly enjoy these little peeks in to Agatha's creative mind.
