Three Act Tragedy: A Hercule Poirot Mystery

Sir Charles Cartwright should have known better than to allow 13 guests to sit down for dinner. For at the end of the evening one of them is dead - choked by a cocktail that contained no trace of poison. Predictable, says Hercule Poirot, the great detective. But entirely unpredictable is that he can find absolutely no motive for murder.…

    Story
    "The Queen of Crime at her peak."
    What did you love best about Three Act Tragedy?

    I love Hugh Fraser's performance of the world's greatest detective. I like him more than David Suchet on audio.


    What did you like best about this story?

    As with most of Dame Agatha's books I like the twists and her reliable cast of characters.


    What does Hugh Fraser bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The listener truely gets a sense of how Perot feels about himself. Mr. Fraser makes you love him in spite of his arrogance and pompous nature.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Every fan of this author loves the "Agatha Christie Moment". That part of the book where all the characters are gathered and the detective procedes to explain the crime and expose the wrong doer.


    Any additional comments?

    While I highly recommend this and all of Agatha Christie's books, if you are new to this author I recommend "The ABC Murders" first.

    Story
    "Poriot is missing"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I was a little disappointed it took so long for Poriot to make his appearance. I'm in the midst of listening to all of his in order and then go on to Miss Marple and the slow pace almost threw me off my goal.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Agatha Christie again?

    Of course

    I was born near Chicago, and moved to Texas 22 years ago. I taught high-school English for probably too many years. Love a good mystery.

    Story
    "MORE COMPLEX RELATIONSHIPS"
    If you could sum up Three Act Tragedy in three words, what would they be?

    THOUGHTFUL, COMPLEX, AND DRAMATIC


    What did you like best about this story?

    The relationships among the characters were thought provoking and not so simple. The characters themselves were unique but believable.


    What does Hugh Fraser bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Drama!


    Any additional comments?

    Christie's later works to me involve more interesting and darker characters.

    Story
    "Traditional Agatha Christie"
    What did you love best about Three Act Tragedy?

    Old style British mysteries keep the solution to the very end!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes--it was so intertwined within the characters, each could have been guilty.


    What does Hugh Fraser bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The voices take on a personality through his reading.


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

    no
