Product Description

About the Author

Agatha Christie was born in 1890. During the World War I she worked as a hospital dispenser, where she gleaned the working knowledge of various poisons. Her first novel was "The Mysterious Affair at Styles," published in 1920, followed over the next six years by four more detective novels and a short story collection. However, it was not until the publication of "The Murder of Roger Ackroyd" that Agatha Christie s reputation was firmly established. In 1930 the sharp-witted spinster sleuth Miss Marple made her first appearance in "Murder at the Vicarage." In all, Agatha Christie published 80 crime novels and short story collections. As her play "The Mousetrap" (the longest-running play in the history of the theater) testifies, Agatha Christie s detective stories are likely to appeal for a long time to come. Agatha Christie was awarded a CBE in 1956 and was made a Dame of the British Empire in 1971. She died in 1976."

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!

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.

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!!

these stories did not appeal to me. to my mind not up to the usual standard of many Agatha Christi stories.

I'm a big Christie fan and, unlike some of the other reviewers, found the settings of these versions refreshing and just as enjoyable as the original versions. I thoroughly enjoyed all 4 volumes of these stories and would recommend others try them out to see for themselves.
