Description

A blinding snowstorm - and a homicidal maniac - traps a small party of friends in an isolated estate. Out of this deceptively simple setup, Agatha Christie fashioned one of her most ingenious puzzlers, which in turn would provide the basis for The Mousetrap, the longest-running play in history.

From this classic title novella to the deliciously clever gems on its tail (solved to perfection by Hercule Poirot and Miss Jane Marple), this rare collection of murder most foul showcases Christie at her inventive best, proving her reputation as "the champion deceiver of our time" (New York Times).

Joan Hickson IS Miss Marple!

All of the stories are wonderful. Even after I know the ending, I can read, listen and watch anything by Agatha Christie over and over again!

Joan Hickson is the definitive Miss Marple and always a treasure!

All together now!

This compilation brought together some of my favourite Agatha Christie stories and narrators. The title track was both scary and mysterious, and the setting of a snowbound house with a group of strangers was remarkably well done.

I thoroughly enjoyed the range of narrators, Joan Hickson and David Suchet never fail to please, and Hugh Fraser brought a different sound to Poirot but not an unpleasant one.

All in all, a thoroughly satisfying listen!

The Seeds of Greatness

Many of Agantha Christie's novels are timeless for me. Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot are my favorites. I'm not sure when this collection of short stories were written. I suspect they were written before the novels. I did not find these short stories as satisfying as the novels I have read. Part of the reason is the narration.

I loved Joan Hickson as Miss Marple in the TV dramas produced by the BBC. I own DVD's of all the Joan Hickson "Miss Marple" programs and have watched them multiple times. However I did not like Ms. Hickson's narrations in this collection. Her voice was excellent in the TV dramas, but is sibilant and hard to listen to in this collection.

The best of the narrators was Hugh Fraser. He gets the voice of Hercule Poirot just right for an audio book. I believe I might have enjoyed this collection more if Hugh Fraser had read all the stories.

I bought this collection as an Audible "Daily Special" - it was a good value at the reduced price. I will seek out other Agatha Christie titles narrated by Hugh Fraser.

Lovely but no chapter headings

Any additional comments?

Delightful but, as with my other Christie collection, the chapter listing only shows a numeral. Ms Christie gave her chapters lovely titles so it would be nice to have these listed in the directory to ease navigation.

Liked Three Blind Mice; no so much the others

I purchased mostly for the Three Blind Mice story, which I enjoyed. I'm not a fan of Joan Hickson's narration (she seems to have a bit of a lisp!), but Hugh Fraser is very good. The other short stories were fine, but only fine. I stick to Agatha Christie's novels in the future and avoid some of these very short stories.

Excellent narration

Other than the Quinn/Swatterswait short story, I am so familiar with these stories I am buying audible versions for the performances rather than the content. This Audible book is excellently produced and the actors “are” the characters. Simon Vance gives his usual perfect performance.

Absolutely Fabulous!!

This was such a delightful little collection of Agatha Christie stories to listen to and each of the narrator's voices fit the characters perfectly. Once I started listening I could not stop, and I finished it in one setting!!!

My kind of stories

I liked all of the narrators and the stories. You can never go wrong with Simon Vance’s voice. Simply a marvelous voice and talent.

Truly an enjoyable listen.

It's Agatha Christie

Detectives, crimes, Agatha Christie how could it be less than great? If you don't know Ms. Christine's work this is a great introductory selection.
