Wonderful Agatha Christie... horrific narration

If you could sum up A Murder Is Announced in three words, what would they be?

She is just unbelievably bad. Don't be fooled by her "normal voice" that you hear when she's narrating - her character accents are absolutely painful to listen to. Screeching nails on a chalkboard.
