Delightful

I have always loved listening to John Moffat as Hercule Poirot. I grew up listening to these dramatizations; and, I still find myself listening to this over and over again. Even when I know who did it, it is still fun to go back and listen for missed clues in these masterful performances. Agatha Christie was the queen of mystery; and, John Moffat brought Poirot to life in a way only he could. I just hope everyone can fall in love with these the way I have.

Not as good as the first collection

Exciting stories, full of twists and turns. However, this selection has more of the slightly ridiculous, overblown stories. It's well worth listening he to nonetheless, especially 5 little pigs, even if just to hear Poirot say 'wee wee wee all the way home' in a deadly serious tone.

Excellent as always

The performances are great. Just that the stories lack a bit of that 'bite' and suspense in the first series.
