Format:Audio Cassette
I was surprised when I first listened to this tape. I was expecting a traditional Agatha Christie type format in the manner I was used to hearing. The three stories have been very much updated in terms of the setting of the stories and the language and general setting of the plots. This does not in any way detract from the enjoyment, rather it enhances the quality of the tales, indicating that the original format transfers very easily to a more up to date setting. The acting in all the stories is excellent, and the plots take a very interesting and unexpected turn, particularly towards the end, which is of course what one would expect from the author. I thoroughly recommend this tape, and would offer it for sale as second hand if I didn't know that I would want to play it over and over again in the future!

4.0 out of 5 stars Radio four, nobody does it better. 18 Jun 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have been brought up listening to radio 4, over 40 years of the best radio station on the planet. And what do they do best, DRAMA. I have spent so many happy afternoons listening to quality dramas and these 3 stories are a great example. The first story "Philomel Cottage" is a jem, very creepy with a great twist in the tale.

1.0 out of 5 stars Mobile phones and internet in a Christie story? 13 Mar 2009
By Marie
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have no interest in reading Christie-stories which are set in the modern world, and hence I was very disappointed with this CD. Philomel cottage, which is a clever story, now contains mobile phones, internet and modern cars. Stupid and boring. I did not bother to listen to the other two stories, as I knew they also were set in modern day.

I love Christie, and have read every word she ever wrote. This is blasphemi!

I was totally disapointed and I felt cheated: I wanted to have an original Agatha Christie book and the stories have been "updated"!!!!Now there are mobiles, Internet, and online businesses!!! Well, let's "update" Cervantes, and Shakespeare, and Balzac!!Amazing!!
