    Excellent Performance by Hugh Fraser

    I don't recall ever reading this story (play?) before. If I have, it was at least 45 years ago and it was fun to "find" a new Christie. It starts on a dark and stormy night in Wales and grabs the listener with the broody atmosphere. Hugh Fraser gives his usual wonderful performance with the narration, which helps paper over some of the minor holes in the plot.

    I will listen to this again and recommend it to any Christie fan.

    This doesn't sound like a Christie to me.

    What would have made The Unexpected Guest better?

    The story having more of the "Christie voice".

    What was most disappointing about Agatha Christie’s story?

    The story had such brutal dialogue it didn't sound like Agatha's usual writing when it came from the mouth of the husband and Jan, the strange child. Too gory, all the descriptions of shooting and killing things (animals).

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

    Hugh Fraser is the BEST narrator for the Christie books because he can do so many voices and accents. I think I'll probably "hear" his voice when I do actually read or reread a Christie novel.

    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Unexpected Guest?

    Some of the descriptions of how the husband enjoyed "killing things" and some repetitive material when the characters were analyzing the death and some of the high-pitched remarks of Jan.

    Any additional comments?

    I don't think this will be a repeat listen for me.

    CLASSIC CHRISTIE SURPRISE ENDING

    Hugh Fraser as always does a great job as story teller. The Character development could have been better but still a good read.

    Unexpected, indeed!

    What did you love best about The Unexpected Guest?

    At the outset, let me say that this was a totally logical ending, and should have been expected. Yet, with Mrs. Christie's tales, there is always a soupçon of doubt, right up to the last minute.

    What about Hugh Fraser’s performance did you like?

    Mr. Fraser is always excellent! I have never heard him give less than a stellar performance, whether by reading, or on the telly or cinema. My compliments and thanks.

    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Things are seldom what they seem...or are they?

    Agatha at her best

    This book had such a catching into I just had to listen to it. I have read so many of Agatha's books I can no longer count. I have to say this is one of her best. You can make a good case for any number of the household being the killer but every time I thought I had it figured out I was wrong. The end caught me off guard.

    Antiquated plot

    Agatha Christie was a woman of her time, and her biases (anti-Semitism, casual racism, etc) crop up often in her plots. I don’t want to spoil the plot for anyone determined to read all her novels/plays/stories, but this is one that should have been allowed to fade into history. I am disappointed that the estate apparently decided to have this play turned into a novella after her death.

    Still Agatha

    Had read this some time ago.....the narration really brought it to life and I remembered why I had enjoyed it.
