If you haven't read Christie before, this is a good book to start you off as it boasts Poirot's (and Christie's) unique genius.
I am disabled and so like to take a flask of coffee and park my car up on the moor, sit back and listen. A great afternoon break.
I shall be purchasing more Agatha Christie audiobooks.
The only reason I did not give 5 stars was that his vocalisation of Colonel Race tended to grate on my ear after a while, but it is a small complaint for such an enjoyable audio book.
As I've come to expect from a Christie novel, there are plenty of red herrings and drama in this book, which is essentially a locked room mystery given that there's not an infinite number of suspects. It moves at a good pace although there's a lot more build up in the first half of the book which leaves the remainder to solve "the rest". It's obviously very of its time, quintessentially British and behind the times but regular Christie readers will know that's what her books were like.
There are some differences between the book and the tv adaptation with Peter Ustinov and Simon MacCorkindale that I love to watch every time its on with some significant character changes but for the most part the plots are the same. However, I did prefer the ending that featured in this movie.
