The Sittaford Mystery | [Agatha Christie]

The Sittaford Mystery

In a remote house in the middle of Dartmoor, six shadowy figures huddle around a table for a seance. Tension rises as the spirits spell out a chilling message: "Captain Trevelyan...dead...murder." Is this black magic or simply a macabre joke? The only way to be certain is to locate Captain Trevelyan. Unfortunately, his home is six miles away and, with snowdrifts blocking the roads, someone will have to make the journey on foot....

    "Audio probably made this much better"
    What did you love best about The Sittaford Mystery?

    The narrator


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I was pleased because I was very surprised. I hate it when I figure it out on my own.


    What about Hugh Fraser’s performance did you like?

    Outstanding as always - he's one of the best!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Table turning that turned all wrong.

    "WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE"
    If you could sum up The Sittaford Mystery in three words, what would they be?

    A good story but I feel that without the snowstorm it wouldn't have been as enjoyable.


    What other book might you compare The Sittaford Mystery to and why?

    Can't think of another story, but whatever it is it must have snow in it.


    What about Hugh Fraser’s performance did you like?

    I've listened to many of Hugh Fraser's peformance and in The Sittaford Mystery he continues to be excellent.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A snowy day in Sittaford town.


    Any additional comments?

    no.

    "Who done it ?"
    What did you love best about The Sittaford Mystery?

    Kept your attention right to the end.


    What other book might you compare The Sittaford Mystery to and why?

    Keeps me wanting to read this type of mystery.


    Have you listened to any of Hugh Fraser’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    As only Agatha Christi can.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Very good performance. Change of voice and defliction of each character was good.


    Any additional comments?

    Looking foward to listening to more.

    "Hugh Fraser is the best."
    Any additional comments?

    I love Christie's work, and for me, there is no other narrator than Hugh Fraser. He's completely brilliant at creating characters, and, most importantly for me, does a believable female voice (not just pitching his voice to sound like a Chipmunk).

    "Double Mystery"

    This is one of my favorite Agatha Christie books. In addition to the question of who did the murder, there is the spunky and attractive fiancee who tells every man in sight: "It's so nice to have someone to depend on..." as she gets them to do her bidding in solving the crime. Will she stay with her somewhat questionable fiancee or move on to a more promising man?
