Great BBC radio audiobook

Like the voice of June Whitfield as Miss Marple. All of these Christie BBC radio programs have been excellent with music and sound in the background.

Enjoyed!

I typically do bot care for dramatizations of Christie's works as they are often overly dramatic and the music too loud. This one was neither. It was just fine. I enjoyed the story and the the dramatization both. #Mystery #AmateurDetective #Tagsgiving #Sweepstakes

Agatha does it again!

Although this is not a long story, around 1 hour 30 minutes, it's a very good story. The plot is very good and character development is top notch. I thoroughly enjoyed it and heartily recommend it.

Great dramatization of a classic Agatha

Would you consider the audio edition of The Body in the Library (Dramatised) to be better than the print version?

Both print and audio editions are good. I read this printed many times and I found the audio edition equally entertaining.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

still good even having read it many times before

Enjoyable!

You cannot go wrong with Dame June Whitfield as Miss Marple. A strong radio presence and really makes these stories very enjoyable. Perfect!
