Excellent performances

Would you consider the audio edition of Poirot's Finest Cases to be better than the print version?

No, because these stories are abridged.

What did you like best about this story?

Agatha Christie's books are always a pleasure, including the selections on this audiobook.

Have you listened to any of John Moffat and Full Cast ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have listened to a number and they are all very good.

Any additional comments?

I suggest reading the books first. Because these are abridged, if you are not familiar with the full book there is a sense of gaps in the plots. It is most noticeable in the ABC Murders, After the Funeral, and The Mysterious Affair at Styles.

A Treat for your "Little Grey Cells"

This compilation of Poirot mysteries is extremely well done. The voice actors do a great job of bringing the stories to life- and the music and sound effects enhance the listening experience. I like that these are radio plays instead of audiobooks- I love Christie's novels but these are much more fast paced. A few details get left out but the twists and turns Christie is known for are all still there. In this collection you get some of the best Poirot stories- my favorites being The Murder on the Orient Express and The Murder of Roger Akroyd. I'd recommend this collection to any mystery fan- it's a great intro to Agatha Christie's most famous detective and his most puzzling cases.

John Moffat as Poirot is always wonderful.

Would you try another book from Agatha Christie and/or John Moffat and Full Cast ?

Of course. I have a large selection of them already- this purchase was to upgrade some cassette recordings to digital. I shall do more and I will continue to purchase programs I don't already own.

What did you like best about this story?

MIchael Bakewell does a great job adapting Christie's work and the performances are always first rate. I love the books but this allows me to revisit them without committing a huge amount of time. They're great for road trips as well.

Have you listened to any of John Moffat and Full Cast ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have enjoyed many of Moffat's performances before. In my opinion he and David Suchet are the best Poirot's ever- and I would have a hard time choosing a favorite between the two. Moffat is wonderful for this medium but he wouldn't work visually. His performance is spot on.

Do you think Poirot’s Finest Cases needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

A volume two would be nice, but I probably have many of them already. I'd probably still buy it.

Any additional comments?

If you're an Agatha Christie fan the BBC dramas are a great way to get to know her stories, if you're not going to sit down and read the books themselves that is. They have the tone and flavor of her books and are beautifully adapted- even the shorter ones. The Murder Of Roger Ackroyd is a favorite book and radio drama, wonderfully adapted with great performances.

This purchase would cost nearly $70 if bought separately. The price here is great. Go for it! Buy it now!

Lovely versions of Christie classics

I just love old radio dramatizations, especially when they're as good as this. Perfect for long drives.

Always a good choice

I get tired of slogging around, looking for a book that will take me away, not insult me or inundate me with drivel and TMI, so I started going back to the old tried and true. Very entertaining and worth listening to. Holds your attention, entertains you, keeps you guessing. The actors are all very believable as portrayed and a bit different than just the one reader, which is a pleasant change.

One of my favourite collections

I'm a huge fan of Agatha Christie's work, and the BBC dramatisations are a fantastic way to experience them. The roles are well-cast and acted, the background sounds fit the atmosphere; all in all the perfect adaptation of the Queen of Crime's best murder mysteries.
