A classic from the queen of mystery: Agatha Christie.

This review was mistakenly posted elsewhere (for The Clocks), but it correctly applies to Spider's Web: "This is a particularly lightweight mystery, pleasant but not really interesting or compelling. Hugh Fraser narrated it well, however, and I won't hesitate to download another book with him as a reader."
As all Agatha Christie, the story itself was wonderful fun with fantastic characters. An adaptation of a play is not always successful, but this certainly was. Hugh Fraser was his usual joy to listen to. In all ways, a totally enjoyable listening experience.
Classic Agatha Christie, I loved every moment of it and did my usual bit of guessing twelve possible endings and none of them being correct. Beautifully read.
Pretty good story. I'd read more by this author. Only thing I didn't like was that the author used a clever "solution" to one of the mysteries of the story that Christie had used in another of her novels.
I could listen to Hugh Frasier all day long. He's an excellent performer, but I'm sure no one needs me to point out that.
The story is, of course, vintage Christie. It's wonderful to be able to hear a new one after all this time. The only quibble I have is a seeming anachronism on the part of Pippa. "Sucks" seems out of place. Otherwise, a definite spider's web.
