    Sure, it was fun.

    The characters were cute and fun.

    Someone with a better grasp of their American accent.


    Do you think Why Didn’t They Ask Evans? needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No.

    A fun mystery in Christie's usual style.

    "Decent Christie ruined by narrator"

    I do hope that Emilia Fox won't be let loose on any more audiobooks. Her reading is wooden, and when she attempted any accent I was praying for it to stop. I'm assuming that the only reason she was chosen was that she can read in an RP accent. It's a shame, because this is one of Agatha Christie's more decent non- Poirot or Marple stories.
