As good as David Suchet is on the TV

Any additional comments?

I have always loved Poirot on TV and John Moffat plays the role fantastically well - despite knowing the stories I am always drawn into the plots and drama

Enchanting Comforting Enjoyable

Firstly this is fabulous value for money and the acting in each one is charming and engaging.
The word of Poirot and Captain Hastings need little introduction. However the magic and charm never fades. I can only recommend this audio dramatisation with out reserve. It is comforting uplifting and somehow safe.

Great but...

Why oh why do Audible seem to be incapable of producing box sets which tell you where you are? There are 8 stories & all we get is Chapter 1, Chapter 2, Chapter 3 etc. What happens if the listener wants to listen to, for example, Murder in The Orient Express first?
It is ridiculous not to break up a box set into the actual stories, or at least to give The listener a clue!
The performances themselves are excellent, but I cannot give 5 stars due to the impossibility of choosing which story one listens to.

A smorgasbord of delight

Would you consider the audio edition of Poirot's Finest Cases to be better than the print version?

While nothing quite compares to the joy of curling up with an Agatha Christie paperback, these dramatised versions of her magnificent characters and plots comes pretty damn close.
The performances effectively explore both the sublime and ridiculous (in the best way!) elements that drive each of these stories home. They add just enough 'tongue-in-cheek' to drive the story and glamour to perfectly capture the ambiance of interwar splendour.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My enduring love for Captain Hastings is only deepened by the fantastic performance of Simon Williams, who captured his sweet naïveté without slipping into buffoonery.

Have you listened to any of John Moffat and Full Cast ’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I have listened to many of John Moffat's performances as Poirot. I enjoy the way that he not only shows the characters admirable qualities but also his irascibility and foibles.
I was also pleased to hear casts that included many of my favourite voices on the radio and felt that they all excelled themselves. These dramatisations more than hold their weight with similar works by the cast.

Excellent Value for your Credit

Would you listen to Poirot's Finest Cases again? Why?

Of course. It's an excellent way to while away an hour or so listening to one of the Plays. 8 to choose from. Each story begins at the odd numbered chapters, so easy to choose the one you want.

What did you like best about this story?

8 Dramatiastions to choose from with the proverbial 'Jewel in the Crown' being, 'Murder on the Orient Express'. How can you go wrong.
I have long enjoyed BBC Dramatisations and these deliver the usual expected quality.

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

Maybe not all 8 stories in one sitting but certainly at least 1 story per sitting.

Any additional comments?

An engaging listen. The stories are brought to life by the music and effects as well as the actors
