This is one of my favourite Christie books but I really wish it had been narrated by Hugh Fraser, who I feel narrates all the Christie books really well.
Suchet on the other hand is fine for some of the characters, and of course wonderful as Poirot, but others, especially the females, have been given quite irritating voices which I find distracting, especially the main character and the Aunt.
It's unfortunate as he is clearly a good narrator in general but seems to make odd choices in characterizations (I can't listen to his narration of "Death on the Nile" due to his interpretation of Colonel Race).
He sometimes emphasises the wrong word in a sentence and at other times uses a tone or emotion that doesn't seem to fit, especially with the Aunt.
