Fun mysteries, good narrator

This is a good collection of Agatha Christie’s mysteries, although you may have heard some of them in other compilations (I had, and skipped those). Be sure that you enjoy the Harley Quin mysteries if you purchase this, as there are quite a number of them in here. Fennell’s Woolgar is a talented narrator with a pleasant voice.

Perfect seasonal solace

This collection from Agatha Christie had several delightful surprises. It opens with an autobiographical memoir of Christmas dinner from Christie herself. And one story in the collection turns out to be in a different genre altogether : a delightful romance in the style of F Scott Fitzgerald. The Christie stories are exquisitely read by Fenella Woolgar. Perfect solace for a winter’s night in the year of the plague.

Christie is Classic

Great performance and stories; be aware that about four of these stories appear in other collections- 2 are in a collection of Poirot , and two from Miss Marple. That does not detract from enjoying them again, however.

Very Enjoyable Short Stories

The narration is very good and most of the stories are intriguing. The Parker Pyne short was annoying. Fortunately the enjoyment of the other stories far outweighed that bit of regret.

Agatha Christie as usual is still the Queen.....

I love all things Agatha Christie, but the narrator should never try to do a French....Belgian....accent!! She also was almost a whisper when doing that accent. This is my opinion.

Okay

This compilation only includes 3-4 short stories not on other compilations, so I'm not sure it was worth the buy.

Christie in a candy jar

A nice collection of Christie, with some quite enjoyable to me--and that will vary with your preferred detection persona and method. Though I know the Three Blind Mice play well, the short story version in this collection was very well devised. I enjoyed the mystery engaging both Miss Marple and her bright niece, and always love Tommy and Tuppence. I prefer the full novel size for her mysteries, but overall worth the listening.
