Would you listen to A Pocket Full of Rye again? Why?
I would absolutely listen to "Pocket Full of Rye" again!!! It is a brilliantly done story with great characters and a wonderful performance!
Who was your favorite character and why?
I absolutely loved Inspector Neil! He is shrewd and calculating but just not quite up to Miss Marple's train of thinking - although wise enough to know that he needs her as a collaborator.
Have you listened to any of Richard E. Grant’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I have listened to two other performances by Richard E. Grant and I can honestly say that they are all brilliant. The first was my favorite "The Moving Finger" but that was simply because I liked Christie's characters there better. As far as the performance of this work, it's fantastic! He really makes the characters come to life. Often, so many performers don't understand the author and their humor or particular characters and it makes the book a droll and uninteresting. NOT SO HERE! I think that Mr. Grant genuinely understands the intentions of Christie in her characters and portrays them wonderfully. I would listen to any other Agatha Christie novel that he performs, simply because I know I will have an enjoyable work to listen to.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
"Four and twenty blackbirds say you're about to die"
"Even Mother Goose can kill"
Any additional comments?
A must read for all book lovers, but especially mystery lovers and Agatha Christie enthusiasts!

Where does A Pocket Full of Rye rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
You won't be steered wrong by a tome read by Richard E Grant. His narration
could make the phone book sound good.
