"The construction is flawless." (Daily Mail)

David Suchet is practically synonymous with Agatha Christie's Poirot, so it's simply wonderful that this audiobook is read by Suchet. His characterisations are perfect, subtle and entertaining, which make these audiobooks great listening. Dive in and enjoy this tale of mystery and murder of the picturesque River Nile, you'll be spellbound.
i enjoyed listening to this story on my iphone laying in my hammock sipping on a pims
I love the clever twists in this story and of course the characters are colorful and vivid.
David Suchet has come to be the voice of Poirot for me, his narration of the this classic transported me to a time i never knew yet fell in love with.
Different to the movie in telling ways, but excellent.
His profiling of the characters through his expressive voice brings them to life in a special way.
"David Suchet narrating Poirot is a must!"
Superb narration of one of my favourite Poirot stories. Poirot is brought to life in this retelling.
"A generally pleasant listen."
Would recommend this book to a friend but it does require some suspension of disbelief. Also the characters are very Christie and whether or not you see that as positive or negative is up to you.
It's an oldie but a goodie and I find Suchet expands his range of characters and accents to excellent effect here, especially considering several of the characters are women. A really enjoyable book.
"Unmissable for fans of Suchet's Poirot"
For those like myself who are fans of David Suchet's Poirot, this is a must-have. Suchet's performance as Poirot, Bessner, Doyle and Race are outstanding, bringing to life one of the highlights of Poirot's career.
"Bring back Hugh Fraser"
While David Suchet is excellent as Poirot, he's not great at the other voices. Colonel Race, who is a viable leading man in 'The Man in the Brown Suit' is read as a ghastly, military type of the worst kind. All the voices kind of grated through the story, which is a shame as it's a good read normally
"Enjoyed every moment"
When the Egyptian people were selling all kinds of stuff to Poirot.
Just pure JOY!!
