"A story that tickles and tantalizes but never exhausts the readers’ patience or ingenuity.’ Times Literary Supplement‘Thoroughly entertaining in a not too solemn way." (Books)
Have read this Agatha Christie before and find it her most interesting one. It's a fun story along with the sleuthing. Beautifully read by Emily Fox.
All round an enjoyable few hours.
"Charming tale well performed"
Really enjoyed this tale. Took a bit of remembering all the characters but well acted and a classic Christie tale with twists and charming main characters
Sure, it was fun.
The characters were cute and fun.
Someone with a better grasp of their American accent.
A fun mystery in Christie's usual style.
"1920s early story"
I enjoy this early Agatha Christie story for it's twists and turns but I really prefer the later stories, as they don't tend to be quite so full of 'jolly young things'. It is however still worth a listen.
"Why didn't they ask Evans? "
A sunny day playing golf a scream a3/4 dead body unconscious he wakes to say why didn't they ask Evans? then dies
Who is Evans and who is the victim was he pushed or fallen?
These are the questions Bobby wants answers to but little did he know what he was getting into. A very intriguing storyline with lots of twists and misdirection really good audio book
"Decent Christie ruined by narrator"
I do hope that Emilia Fox won't be let loose on any more audiobooks. Her reading is wooden, and when she attempted any accent I was praying for it to stop. I'm assuming that the only reason she was chosen was that she can read in an RP accent. It's a shame, because this is one of Agatha Christie's more decent non- Poirot or Marple stories.
