Death on the Nile

Kenneth Branagh is brilliant. He is superb at the most subtle intonations . This was yet another narration that has helped me through a very difficult time.

Wonderful rendition

Kenneth Brannagh is wonderful to listen to, I hope he does more. He does a great impression of Poirot and you can tell the characters apart. Very good

One of the best audio books I’ve listened to

I wanted to read this book before the movie came out and saw that the actor who plays Poirot actually narrated this. And I must say, this is was the best audio book I’ve ever listened to! Brilliant performance, voice tone, the accents, the pace, all of it. It’s almost like watching a movie that lasts 8 or so hours, absolutely fabulous. I recommend immensely you listen to it, it is a fully immersive and fantastic experience. Bravo! Loved the Orient Express movie and absolutely cannot wait for this movie to come out. Thank you so so much Mr. Branagh, please read more Poirot books and, hopefully!, make more Poirot movies!

Albeit very famous Kenneth Branagh brings this classic to life with an utter masterclass. Word, tone and delivery perfect. Bravo.

Outstanding performance.

This is one of my favourite Agatha Christie’s (isn’t it everyone’s?) and I thought Kenneth Branagh might ham it up too much but actually it is brilliant. The characterisation really sings and it’s a great story. Can’t wait for the film now!

Branagh tour de force of audiobooks

Loved Kenneth Branagh's performance. Have a sneaking feeling my next audiobook will be a little disappointing in comparison.

Amazing performance to a masterpiece!

I had read Death on the Nile years ago but still wanted to listen to it when I saw that Kenneth Branagh was narrating it. And I wasn’t disappointed. He is so good! I would recommend anyone to try it out regardless of whether they have read it before or not.
