Love having someone read me a story. Fires in the hearth, rain on the roof, sunny days and surf. Good friends, good food and J S Bach.
These are stories of murder and mystery where Mr Quin inspires an older batchelor of some means to alter a seeming Fate. Again and again. A delightful listen. For me this is a very different Christie. Having written that, there still are, the trip to Egypt, the country homes, weekend guests, young Americans doing Europe, a troupe of robbers, rural hotels, motoring through the countryside, thunderstorms, a Duchess, quiet islands in the sun and Casino. And then some.
"Short Story Gems"
Mr. Harley Quin is one of Agatha Christie`s most engaging characters together with Mr.Satterthwaite who appears in each story as the vehicle by which wrongs are righted and justice is done. The stories are intriguing and entertaining. This is Agatha Christie at her short story best and one laments that there are not more of them. Hugh Fraser`s narration is, as always, excellent.
I love anything by Agatha Christie and if your a fan you will love it too. I was'nt expecting lots of short stories, I'm not sure if it tells you this in the description, but it is still a great book by the Crime Queen.
"My favourite Agatha Christie book"
I am a big fan of Agatha Christie's work and this is my all time favourite. It is quite different from the rest of her books and has a slightly spooky atmosphere. Hugh Fraser (Captain Hastings) does a very good job of narrating all the different characters. A pleasure to listen to!
"Some things get better with age!"
I loved this book. hard to believe it was first published in 1930. Yes there are parts of it which are dated and very well to do. However there are parts that are just magical.
The narration by Hugh Fraser was somehow comforting and apt, a pleasure to listen to.
