    "Standard Agatha Christie Story"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    No. I enjoyed it although the Christie stories without her main detectives are not my favorites.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Agatha Christie? Why or why not?

    Agatha Christie is one of my favorite authors. I have listened to many of her books and will continue to do so. It is my comfort food listen.


    What three words best describe Christopher Lee’s voice?

    Not very versatile


    Could you see The Mystery of the Blue Jar being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    It could be turned into a TV episode with British actors.


    Any additional comments?

    The story feels dated but it is a quick listen. It is a mystery not a murder mystery. The lead chaRacter is standard Christie but pleasant enough. Recommended for diehard Christie fans.
