I home-school and am married with three sons. Listening to books while I get things done (like driving) has become a favorite pass-time.
I was looking for something short and fun to listen to. Very entertaining. dramatization. I'll look for more.

Although this is not a long story, around 1 hour 30 minutes, it's a very good story. The plot is very good and character development is top notch. I thoroughly enjoyed it and heartily recommend it.
Both print and audio editions are good. I read this printed many times and I found the audio edition equally entertaining.
still good even having read it many times before
Superb dramatisation of this Agatha Christie classic. Thoroughly enjoyable in every aspect. Cast are tremendous. Miss Marple, as ever, outwits the authorities and solves the crime! Delightfully twee! Highly recommended.
