Great plot, great narration. Quite a deviation frim normal Christie. I really had a hard time putting this down. Highly recommend
Never lonely with a good book in hand
The story having more of the "Christie voice".
The story had such brutal dialogue it didn't sound like Agatha's usual writing when it came from the mouth of the husband and Jan, the strange child. Too gory, all the descriptions of shooting and killing things (animals).
Hugh Fraser is the BEST narrator for the Christie books because he can do so many voices and accents. I think I'll probably "hear" his voice when I do actually read or reread a Christie novel.
Some of the descriptions of how the husband enjoyed "killing things" and some repetitive material when the characters were analyzing the death and some of the high-pitched remarks of Jan.
I don't think this will be a repeat listen for me.
A classic christie with lots of twists and turns. Enjoyed the pace and the great atmosphere; and of course, it was a pleasure to hear Captain Hastings narrate it!
