Great Stories although Misleading Title

Truly great collection of murder mysteries from
arguably the best golden age detective author.

With Christmas approaching, I love to get into the winter mood with some chilling winter mysteries, but was a little disappointed that this is not really a themed collection. While all are very good, one is set in Palma De Mallorca so not very wintery!

That aside, a truly enjoyable set of short stories and fans of the genre will not be disappointed.

Disappointing

Just rather boring stories with an irritating female attempt at a Belgian accent. Couldn't finish it.

Gasp, gasp!

I LOVE the stories, Agatha Christie is an incredibly skilled writer, however, I struggled with the narrator taking big gasps of breath (particularly during stories featuring Poirot) it really distracted me from the story.

4.25/5

A wonderfully wintery collection of short stories from the marvellous Agatha Christie. Featuring an array of her beloved characters, this collection has a murderously magnificent feel.

- Each story is fairly short but wonderfully done. I enjoyed some more than other and some were more complex whereas others were simple but all were fun.

- If you enjoy Christie's famous detectives then you won't be disappointed. There's several involving Monsieur Poirot, a couple with Miss Marple and one or two with other less well known characters too.

- The narrator did an excellent job reading these tales. I particularly enjoyed how plummy she made the voices of the more upper class characters.

Perfect for those who love cosy mystery and festive vibes.
