Description

The tranquillity of a cruise along the Nile was shattered by the discovery that Linnet Ridgeway had been shot through the head. She was young, stylish, and beautiful. A girl who had everything ... until she lost her life.

Hercule Poirot recalled an earlier outburst by a fellow passenger: 'I'd like to put my dear little pistol against her head and just press the trigger." Yet in this exotic setting, nothing was ever quite what it seemed.

Yes, yes, yes!

This is what I'm talking about! Give us more David Suchet doing Agatha Christie's Poirot books and short stories. Any and all of them. It's that plain and simple. He's a perfect narrator for ANY Christie story really but he's the master of performing Poirot. He's always been great onscreen and now he's great on audiobook. If you've ever wanted to read a Poirot adventure or one of Christie's classics, buy one of the full Hercule Poirot audiobooks read by David Suchet and you will not be disappointed.

Suchet is the Best

Having David Suchet read Hercule Poirot is heaven. He knows his character so well. Death on the Nile is a great listen. Even though I had the bad guy/gal figured out before the denouement, it was a fun ride getting there. Christie provides a great cast of potential killers and victims.

Wonderful story! Recording needs to be fixed in spots

The story is fantastic! Agatha Christie does it again. The narrator did a good job but the recording quality is inconsistent. There's an entire patch towards the end where the sound isn't good at all and I found it very distracting.

David Suchet Does It All (With One Exception)

If you could sum up Death on the Nile in three words, what would they be?

Clever, Atmospheric, Tricky

Who was your favorite character and why?

Hercule Poirot is the greatest fictional detective ever, Sherlock be damned. Poirot has character to spare, his foibles are human, he is funny as anything, and yet he maintains dignity, the proper reverence for human life, and the proper revulsion for murder.

Which scene was your favorite?

The reveal of whodunit is extraordinary. Even for Christie (the queen of intriguing yet plausible solutions), this is an outstanding denouement.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It is excellent, but I have read it several times, so I did not have an extreme reaction, just enjoyed the new medium for drinking it in.

Any additional comments?

Suchet's characterizations are mostly on-point, and his Poirot (as anyone who saw his performances on BBC/A&E/PBS can attest) is the best there is, the closest I've seen anyone come to capturing the witty little Belgian. While the vocalizations of the "natives" in this book could be questionable/offensive to a modern reader, that is mostly Christie's doing. It was a different time.

What really needs addressing is Suchet's Colonel Race. For some reason, his vocal characterization is both nasal AND with a lisp. And since he's the character who speaks second-most (I'm guessing) in the book, this is problematic. I alternately wanted to giggle at the strange choice or strangle Suchet for the choice (or perhaps the director/producer for not saying, "Uh, David, pick nasal or lisp, not both"). "I say, Pwoiwot, do you weawwy think that's the wight thing to do?" I'm exaggerating a little, but not by much. Strange choice, to make the seemingly level-headed Colonel Race a cross between Steve Urkel and Barbara Walters.

5* for Christie 3* for Suchet

Nothing has surprised me more than the fact I don’t like David Suchet’s narration of the two full-length Audible mysteries I’ve bought. Death on the Nile is my favorite of Christie’s Egypt series, and my complaint about his narration is the that as other reviewers. He doesn’t do any characters well but his own. I could hardly believe I was listening to David Suchet in “Sad Cypress”. He does the short stories very well, but, frankly, if I had to choose between Hugh Fraser and David Suchet for my next Christie Audible, it would be Hugh Fraser. I’m still stunned at how much I didn’t like Suchet as the narrator of these two books. Two of my favorites, and he ruined the experience for me.

Excellence from every angle!

Where does Death on the Nile rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

By far, the best audiobook that I have experienced. Christie's brilliant and intricate analysis of human nature, coupled with Suchet's embodiment of Poirot,make this audio experence a must have. It's my new favorite!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, I couldn't put it down!

Great listen!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Because Agatha Christie rocks!

What about David Suchet’s performance did you like?

He did a great job doing all the voices, especially the females, they were a bit hysterical at times! Listen to the conversation between Jacqueline and Linnet when she asks her to hire Simon... hahaha that made the whole book for me :D

Agatha Christie is always great fun

What other book might you compare Death on the Nile to and why?

The story is typical Agatha Christie, a full cast of diverse characters, all acting in various suspicious ways. Excellent performance by David Suchet, who played Hercule Poirot in the British TV series. At times, the reading was a bit overly dramatic and frenetic, but quite fun. Like listening to a radio broadcast.

Absolutely fantastic mystery novel

What made the experience of listening to Death on the Nile the most enjoyable?

I'm becoming a huge Agatha Christie fan and I continue to be blown away by her amazing knack for intricate plotting and her deep understanding of human beings. Her mysteries work because you can't spot an easy solution due to the incredible depth she gives to each character. Not everyone on the boat trip down the Nile is a murderer, but most of them are hiding *something* and Christie once again masterfully places clues and hints, takes her time and eventually comes to an extremely satisfying and revealing conclusion. I was stunned and hooked and listened to the last 2.5 hours all in one go because I couldn't "put the book down."

What other book might you compare Death on the Nile to and why?

Well, we can compare it to Murder on the Orient Express (which I listened to recently). I actually found this one to be slightly better with more going on in the cast and a better conclusion. Both books are fantastic, though and Poirot is such a wonderful character and detective.

What does David Suchet bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Overall, I found Suchet to be a very good narrator who provided good voices for most of the characters in the cast (many of whom have different accents). However, he did two voices that I found unpleasant and not suitable to the characters which made me drop a star. His voice for Colonel Race sounded rude and unpleasant, though the character was supposed to be an ally for Poirot and a good man. And his voice for Mr. Ferguson was WAY over the top and made it impossible for me to take the character seriously. That said, all the rest of the voices were great and his general narration was very good as well.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I loved the conclusion of the plots involving Tim Allerton and Rosalie Otterbourne. It was emotional, surprising and very satisfying. The conclusion of the Jackie / Simon Doyle plot was less moving than shocking, but also great and very memorable. I also loved Cornelia growing a spine throughout the book.

Any additional comments?

My version (not sure if this is a problem for everyone) experienced a significant quality drop off at chapter 23. The audio became fuzzy, distorted and sounded far-away. It also felt less well-edited and I could hear Suchet's swallows. It seemed to right itself after awhile but it was distracting.

Shift in quality

Was braucht dieses Hörbuch, um für Sie zu einem 4- oder 5-Sterne Hörerlebnis zu werden?

Not suddenly shift the quality of the audio somewhere around 5:45. Sounds like they are using plastics cups instead of a proper mic. All in all its ok tho.
