Story

A blinding snowstorm - and a homicidal maniac - traps a small party of friends in an isolated estate. Out of this deceptively simple setup, Agatha Christie fashioned one of her most ingenious puzzlers, which in turn would provide the basis for The Mousetrap, the longest-running play in history. From this classic title novella to the deliciously clever gems on its tail (solved to perfection by Hercule Poirot and Miss Jane Marple), this rare collection of murder most foul showcases Christie at her inventive best.

"Anyone who murdered Colonel Protheroe," declared the parson, brandishing a carving knife above a joint of roast beef, "would be doing the world at large a favor!" It was a careless remark for a man of the cloth. And one which was to come back and haunt the clergyman just a few hours later - when the Colonel is found shot dead in the clergyman"s study. But as Miss Marple soon discovers, the whole village seems to have had a motive to kill Colonel Protheroe.

I’m obsessed

I honestly cannot handle how brilliant this book is. At first, I actually thought it was boring. But by the end, I had become so intrigued that I immediately listened to the whole thing through again and have been madly researching clues. This is a work of literary genius, and the performance is wonderful too, particularly the narration of the doctor’s conversations with his sister. I definitely recommend.

I KNEW IT!!!!

Honestly it was just a wild guess, a shot in the dark, but it was so satisfying to be right!!This story is a classic whodunit and Agatha Christie is a MASTER of creating suspense, playfully parsing out information for the reader to latch onto and create their own hypotheses. She creates countless twists and turns, and overall is an incredible storyteller. The narrator was one of my favorites so far, I haven"t heard him before but I will certainly be on the lookout for him in the future! He absolutely nailed the French/Belgian accent and made the story that much more dynamic and interesting. All in all, 10/10, would recommend!!

Another gem from Christie!

I can"t get enough of Agatha Christie! It doesn"t seize to amaze me the depth with which Dame Christie planned and executed her novels; the attention to detail is impeccable! Very enjoyable read/listen. Love, love High Fraser! I forget at times that it"s one person speaking. He gives each character such specific accent/intonation/pitch, and you get transformed into the novel. My commute to work and back home is something I now look forward to thanks to Hugh Fraser and Ms. Christie. Now off to go check out my next Christie book!

Great narration; loved by my 6th grader

What did you love best about The Murder of Roger Ackroyd?

I read it almost 40 years ago and found the final plot twist really shocking. What was fun about the audio was that I could share the experience with my 6th grade son. He loved it! This was some elective reading he had to do for school, but it turned into a fun experience for us to do together. I wouldn"t have thought of this as a kids" book!

What other book might you compare The Murder of Roger Ackroyd to and why?

Well, it is a great example of Agatha Christie. It actually isn"t one of her ones I most enjoy experiencing -- in fact, I found it disturbing enough when I read it as a tween that I didn"t reread it until now. However, because of its subversion of the conventions I can see why it is an interesting one to read for English class. A great example of the unreliable narrator.So to compare it to other Christies, I would say it is more thought provoking, but not a cozy (though much of Christie has disturbing elements, especially for the time it was written).

Have you listened to any of Hugh Fraser’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Well, I enjoyed him as Dr. Hastings, Poirot"s sidekick on PBS Mystery. Although my son often watches Mystery with me, he wasn"t familiar with the Poirot episodes so it was a new narrator/actor for him. Neither of us had listened to his audios before.I thought he was an outstanding narrator for this book. I would hope that he narrates other Christies.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

My son certainly found it hard to take a break from. We had to turn it off so he could get some sleep!

Any additional comments?

I continue to marvel about how accessible this was to a modern 11 year old who has grown up on TV and computers.
