All-star Poirot!

Being a big fan of audible's original dramatisation series (passenger 57, the child etc) I was looking forward to listening to this adaptation of a modern classic and boy was I not disappointed.

I'll admit that I have never read any of Agatha Christie's work up until now (I know, shame on me) but I certainly will be from now on, as I can now see plainly that I've been missing out.

Entertaining and enveloping, strap on tight as you board the Orient express because this has more twists than a formula one racing track. Absolutely 10/10.

Smashing!

Loved it. A first class cast recording. Tom Conti highly believable. Jane Asher a revelation. Very well done

When's the next one Audible, please soon?


Although ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ is one of Agatha Christie’s more well known books, my view is it works better in a visual rather audio format. The problem is that after the murder is discovered the majority of the story is then played out in the dining compartment as Poirot interviews the passengers. Without the backdrop of the snow and decor of the Orient Express to keep you enthralled, the story begins to plod. Though I can understand why this story was chosen as it links with the new film, of the same name, starring Kenneth Branagh. It is still an ingenious story, but there are better ones.

Anything bad? Nope not bad, I did really enjoy it, though found some of the minor cast accents a little wobbly - they didn’t always seem authentic, some syllables sounded English/ Welsh.

After so many years with David Suchet depicting Poirot, it took a little time to adjust Tom Conti, but I do hope Audible will dramatise many more books so that he cements himself as the character.

Oldie but goodie

Usually love Tom Conti but didn’t have the same skill as David Suchet with the accent. Apart from that loved it. This is one of my favourite stories of all time. And the characters were great especially Walles Hamonde as Hector McQueen.
