    "A good way to wile away time"

    A typical Agatha Christie but short and well narrated. Story is a bit typical with the famouse Agatha Christie confrontation at the end

    "My favorite book- my favorite drama"
    Where does The Murder of Roger Ackroyd (Dramatised) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    TMORA is one of the best dramas that the BBC has done from Agatha Christie's Poirot books, probably because it's one of her best books in the first place. Readers are more sophisticated these days so the revelation may not have the same dramatic effect but when I first read it I was blown away. The radio drama manages to keep the suspense and mystery until the appropriate time remarkably well.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    John Moffat as Poirot is brilliant. Dr.Shepherd is great too.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    It Just Got Real.


    Any additional comments?

    If you can't read the book this audio version is almost as good. The story is told in a tight, concise way that retains all the mystery and charm of the novel. I highly recommend it- along with all of the BBC Agatha Christie radio dramas. Git some.
