"The acknowledged queen of detective fiction." (Observer)
"The Empress of the crime novel." (Sunday Express)
The Mystery of the Blue Train is one of my favourite Christie novels, and I think Hugh Fraser did a wonderful job mimicking David Suchet's Poirot voice, as well as making the women sound normal instead of overly feminine.
And Then There Were None, narrated by the same actor, but with no Poirot, so no fallback character. A wonderfully creepy rendition of Justice Wargrave.
Wonderfully varied in voice, with each character distinct by sound alone, and his natural voice is perfect for narrating.
When Katherine tells Poirot she can't go on, Hugh Fraser captures the distress in her voice in a perfect, yet understated, manner.
Would recommend to anyone and everyone - thoroughly enjoyable!
Good story. Classic Christie tale. As always Hugh Frasers narration is perfect. I could listen to him reading anything. Brilliant!
"It's Agatha Christie"
Another wonderful book from Agatha Christie. Narrated by the wonderful Hugh Fraser who reads all the parts with excellent accents and makes you feel your really in the strory.
"Mystery of the blue train "
Brilliant intriguing superb Agatha Christie does it again, there was more than one storyline, and they all went together great, thanks to Agatha Christie you were kept on your toes it was a fantastic story I throughly enjoyed it.
