Not the usual Agatha Christie

This is beautifully performed by Hugh Frasier, as always. However, the story is not what I expected. It was sort of an extended rant on the ills of the world, presumably as seen by the author sometime in the 60's. It envisions our world having become an almost dystopian society where young Hitler-like youth have taken over the world, fueled by financiers with unlimited money and a desire for power. So if you're looking for the usual Agatha Christie mystery, well-plotted, with an appealing detective, taking place in an English country house, this is not the book you want.

Bizarre Story

Bizarre story. Will not read/listen to again.
Hugh Fraser's performance was flawless (as always).

Don't bother.

Read the other reviews. Confusing, boring, total waste of time.

I like her other work. Not this. So, don't bother

Not one of Christie's Best

I am one of Agatha Christie's biggest fans and have read just about all of her books. Passenger to Frankfurt did not live up to Christie's other novels. I would not recommend this book, as it was slow and fairly boring, and even after listening to it, I'm not really sure what happened because there was so little that actually grabbed my attention. Ending this review on a positive note- Hugh Fraser is one of the best Christie narrators in my opinion and always does a good job even when the content is dry.

Divergent

This book is not the usual mystery Christie excels at writing. The plot centers more or less on how ideas or political/philosophical ideologies have always been part of mankind's history across all cultures . Nonetheless, it is quite clever and engaging to read.

This story could be speaking of today.

A.C. tale is the story of the world today. Destruction of countries around the world. Anarchy and heat destroying with out thought of rebuilding.

Not worth listening to

Dame Agatha must have been perplexed by postwar anxiety and stressed out by world events when she penned this late tale. It is not among her best. Convoluted story with high-minded themes interwoven with spying and theft. Skip it and stick to simple murders if you like good crime solving, well told.

Confusing and complicated

Plot tangled and complicated to the point that it became boring. The worst of Christie's that I've read so far. Waste of money and time.
