David Suchet IS Poirot!

This collection of short stories is wonderfully narrated by David Suchet, who will always be the definitive Hercule Poirot. He possesses however, many other voices and accents, including a quite creditable American accent. This as a delight to listen to.

David Suchet's performance as Poriot is as enthralling as ever. Bringing Agatha Christie's story to life.

Thank you for this brilliant recording!

To listen to David Suchet when he reads these short stories is a joy! He is all the characters with or without accents or English dialects, and he is a valuable gift for all of us who has English as 2nd language. The stories can also be seen on DVDs, but it is more fun to listen to them, and, in the head, you will "see" him again, when you hear the fantastic artist, David Suchet, perform this theatre for your ears.🤗💖 5 stars is not enough for Mr Suchet as the Narrator!

Buggy

Murder in Paradise may be a good book but it was so buggy I couldn’t lister to it. The audio kept shutting off and when I restarted it, it repeated previous dialogues. This is not happening with my other books.

A Fun Listen!

If you like stories that make you feel good, this collection of Agatha Christie favorites is for you! A serious subject related through humorous situations with loveable people like Poirot and Hastings can't help but make a person smile, while the plot takes you on a circuitous trip that engages your intellect, keeping you curious right until the end! The performances are perfection!
