This story is bonkers

The story makes no sense at all. Even the initial set up is mental. But the reading - ah! Perfection. He nails it. If anyone else had read it I'd have given it two stars.

Fell for it again!

Of course I want another Poirot story! Please couldn't this be the one? Nope. Awful. Silly, contrived, not worth the listen. The narrator does well but can't save this poor story.

Narration is GREAT!

I picked up this book because of all the hype and I was intrigued of the plot and twists. Was expecting a bit more action and maybe less characters but just because of the narration I kept on listening. The book itself an enjoyable cozy mystery.

I loved this mystery!

My one regret is my inability to adequately express how much I loved this book. It was well written with a very insightful plot. The narration was perfect. I am at a loss for words!

I enjoyed this

Keeping in mind that my exposure to Hercule Poirot has been primarily through PBS dramatizations, I enjoyed this rendering. It seemed fairly consistent in terms of environment, tension and complexity, but Poirot's final explication of who did what leading up to "whodunnit " was a bit drawn out.

Meh....

No Agatha Christies were cloned or dug up and revived in the production of this novel. A bit drier than an actual Christie authored Poirot adventure. And she can be dry AF!

where is Captain Hastings?

The plot is quite complex but the characters are not. They are very static and one dimensional-as a result, it is difficult to identify with them. The character who is the least interesting, unfortunately, is that of the newly added sidekick for Poirot, – – Catchpole. He lacks the naivete and amusing dim-
wittedness of Captain Hastings and, although he's constantly referred to as being very smart, nothing he does or says seems to be very intelligent.

Good Christie clone

If you're an Agatha Christie fan you should enjoy this book and Audible makes it better, just a little slow at the end, could have been tightened

Really Really Good

Great narration. Compelling characters and story line. Very much in the Christie tradition. Ms Sophia's dialogue captured Hercule to a Tee.

Good, but not as crisp as an original Agatha Chris

Difficult to hear performer at times. Story was slow and convoluted at various points.
