Excellent Entertainment Extraordinary
The excellent charactisations of Suchet brings the personalities to life.
A true Poirot experience.
David Suchet portraits Poirot to a "T"! Fantastic work and the stories, as always, wonderful.
"Wrong Reader, Good Stories"
A good collection of stories, but beware if you're a fan of Hugh Fraser and don't listen to the preview before buying. This collection is actually read by David Suchet (Poirot in the TV series) and NOT Fraser.
The stories themselves are good and varied, ideal to dip in and out of. Much less 'murder mystery' and more towards the Jewel heist type story than Christie's other books, but all are well written with satisfying endings. Recommended then, but again, listen to the preview before buying
A number of short stories with Point.
It makes you wonder how on earth she thinks them up. Nice easy to listen to I'd like to know how to get the full version of the audio book
"David Suchet IS Hercule Poirot"
A faithful reading of the Poirot stories by the man himself - David Suchet. Very pleasant listening with humour and drama, even though I know the stories so well.
A full cast recording would be the only improvement, but David Suchet's range of character interpretations was masterful.
This I shall listen to again and again with equal enjoyment.
"love the novel, then you will love this recording"
this was a great dramatisation. well paced, high standard recording of this great novel. if the book is a favourite for you, then you will love this recording.
"Not great on many levels."
Wasn't keen on the narrations, especially that of Hastings who was irritating . Sound quality was poor compared to other recordings.
Better quality, better supporting cast.
Makes me realise how far we have come. I know casual racism was an accepted thing in older novels, even in Just William and John Buchan books. But this is the first time I have been offended by an Agatha Christie one where the constant reference to " chinks, orientals and slitty eyes " was common during one of the readings.
