    "Good but slow."

    It was a good book don't get me wrong but it was very slow to develop. This may just be the Christie style, but at times I was bored. However, I was surprised by the end and did enjoy trying to follow the detectives thought pattern and predict the killer. Definitely a very in depth and complicated story which deserves props. And its Christie.

    "Plenty of Suspects!"
    What does Hugh Fraser bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Fraser is a master of conveying the action in appropriate tones.


    Any additional comments?

    I will purchase more Christie novels.

    "Just what you expect from Agatha Christie"
    If you could sum up Hallowe'en Party in three words, what would they be?

    True Agatha Christie


    What about Hugh Fraser’s performance did you like?

    Very good orator


    Any additional comments?

    If you are an Agatha fan, this is one of her best, and I've read most of her works.
