It is Agatha Christie - what's not to love ? :D
Not really, but it was entertaining and that is what is more important.
His voice reminds me of the Poirot episodes he used to do, and it is very cultured and manages to have distinctive personalities for each character. You were never confused in who was speaking at the moment.
Yes, but haven't managed it yet. I listen to audiobooks just before bed, as I find that relaxing - and I often fall asleep to the readings. And I pick the story back up from where I left off, when I take the bus in the morning.
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.
...Agatha Christie. My rating is based on its era and genre. Hugh Fraser reads very well, and engages the listener quickly. I liked this story in part because the English Aunt, Miss M, and the Belgian detective, P, are indeed absent. Absent too is is the frenzied killer with bizarre mutilations and graphic descriptions of mutilated and tortured bodies.
Nice clean bullets to the head and brandished knives in scuffles in the night are more the go. Bodies in trunks and country estates are delightfully mixed with daring and, dull young men,
Even though you may guess correctly who the baddies are, the story is an enjoyable light holiday listen. You will not need to check your doors and windows, and likely feel ready to approach the next murder mystery with a lighter heart.
