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.

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.

Strong Performance can't rescue a ridiculous story

I kept reading because I had invested time for the setting up of the stories and characters, but I won't be looking for this author again. Almost none of the characters were likable, and when you find a nurse who theoretically has a good mind and good training hopelessly in love with a man she knows to be a pathological liar, and caricatures of Agatha Christie types, you get pretty disgusted. The reader is excellent, but it was a good thing this was on sale, and even then I was disappointed.

Bad Poirot

Would you try another book from Sophie Hannah and Agatha Christie and/or Julian Rhind-Tutt?

Definitely Julian Rhind-Tutt, the narration was flawless. I’ve read every Agatha Christie and loved them all, wouldn’t read something else by Ms. Hannah

Would you ever listen to anything by Sophie Hannah and Agatha Christie again?

Agatha yes, Sophie no

Have you listened to any of Julian Rhind-Tutt’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, but this is flawless

Any additional comments?

The Poirot character is nothing like Agatha’s. He simply complains a lot and sparingly talks about grey cells. The male characters use the phrase “old boy” so much it made me very aware this wasn’t written by someone who lived in the era. It’s like what people think men of this time sounded like.

needs an editor

book was painful to get through. the characters are so flat that their motivation makes sense only for the convenience of plot. in fact all conversations are just exposition all development of the story takes place outside the narrative. the mystery could have been good but so much fluff and having everything talked out was painful. last of thus author I will read.

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.

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.

Looking for Summer Reading...

I love stylish mysteries—this one is not! Return & try again, probably. Painful, skipped chunks to the (never) ending. 1st in new series o.k. Sorry.

sehr konstruiert mit Längen

Langatmige Geschichte, Auflösung hat mich nicht begeistert, da sehr weit hergeholt. Keine Empfehlung. Da gibt es bessere Werke.
