Nemesis | [Agatha Christie]

Nemesis

In utter disbelief, Miss Marple read the letter addressed to her from the recently deceased Mr Rafiel, an acquaintance she had met briefly on her travels. Recognising in Miss Marple a natural flair for justice, Mr Rafiel had left instructions for her to investigate a crime after his death. The only problem was, he had failed to tell her who was involved or where and when the crime had been committed. It was most intriguing.

    "Good reading"

    I first heard of this book as a Marple episode. The book was a lot better.

    "My favourite Miss Marple"

    Although the narration at times is a little unclear, you really can't beat Joan Hickson as Miss Marple. This is an unusual book as part of the mystery is finding out which crime had been committed, as well as the perpetrator. The characters are interesting and there are enough red herrings to keep you guessing right to the end

    "Justice is served."

    Miss Marple met Mr Raphael in "A Caribbean Mystery" and now, from beyond the grave, he commissions Miss Marple - "Nemesis" - to right a wrong. The tale which follows, if not top draw Christie, is, nevertheless, enjoyable. It made a long train journey simply fly by. I will not spoil your enjoyment of this reading by writing a spoiler of the plot.



    Joan Hickson reads with her customary professionalism though I find her voice now a little too frail to be convincing as Miss Marple. I longed for the crisper tones of June Whitfield.

    "My Favourite!"

    Really, what could be better than this fantastic story read by the great Joan Hickson. For me, no one comes close to Joan Hickson as Miss Marple in the TV series and equally here her reading of Agatha Christie. This has to be my favourite Agatha Christie of all time, so this, combined with great narration is perfect. Enjoy!

    "Joan Hickson is Miss Marple"

    I've always loved Miss Marple and to find audiobooks read by Joan Hickson was a delight. However in this recording her speech is slightly slurred, I expect due to her age at the time. Once past this however it is a must for Marple fans.

    "A good story, but not so well read"

    I enjoyed the TV series with Joan Hickson, and enjoyed the story, but Joan's reading was very flat, and every so often it sounded like her top plate was slipping. The original language was a surprise too. She does go on about "old pussies" a lot!
