Evil Under the Sun: A Hercule Poirot Mystery | [Agatha Christie]

Evil Under the Sun: A Hercule Poirot Mystery

The beautiful bronzed body of Arlena Stuart lay face down on the beach. But strangely, there was no sun and Arlena was not sunbathing - she had been strangled.

Ever since Arlena's arrival the air had been thick with sexual tension. Each of the guests had a motive to kill her, including Arlena's new husband. But Hercule Poirot suspects that this apparent "crime of passion" conceals something much more evil.

    "No Vacation from Evil"
    What made the experience of listening to Evil Under the Sun the most enjoyable?

    David Suchet's excellent performance of all the characters really brought the story to life.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Evil Under the Sun?

    I really enjoyed the lead-up to the murder, meeting all the characters and finding out all the motives people might have.


    What about David Suchet’s performance did you like?

    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.


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

    No, I wanted to savor it.

    "So enjoyable and relaxing"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Evil Under the Sun to be better than the print version?

    Yes!


    Have you listened to any of David Suchet’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but he is great. Excellent job of change of voice as well as being able to put "personality" into the characters. Best I've listened to.

    Story
    "Always fantastic"
    Would you listen to Evil Under the Sun again? Why?

    I have already listened to this book twice. There is such beautiful details that it is always intriguing. Hercule Poroit is my favorite character that Agatha Christie writes about. David Suchet does the voices of every character so wonderfully that you forget it is just him reading.


    What did you like best about this story?

    As usual Agatha's twists keep you going until the end. Hercule Poroit never tells you everything and his character is so quirky and enjoyable. The characters are so rich and developed that you feel like you really know the people she writes about.


    What about David Suchet’s performance did you like?

    Fantastic voices and brings every character to life. Such a joy to listen to him perform.
