"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!
"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.
I don't get the story. It is not the best agatha christie book. But is a good one. The reader is very good and overall it's quite good
Good story. Classic Christie tale. As always Hugh Frasers narration is perfect. I could listen to him reading anything. Brilliant!
