The Mysterious Affair at Styles

I love Agatha Christie's work, but was unimpressed by the reader. B.J. Harrison read expressively, but his Poirot accent must've been inspired by Peter Sellers' Inspector Clouseau! When he pronounced "voila" as "VIOLA," I had to throw up my hands.

Agatha is always a good read

Have read and seen this several times. Always a good read, as are all of her books. Sadly, the narrator does not capture Poirot very well, neither the accent nor the essence of the character. The same can be said for most of the characters. I just wish there had been more depth.
