Dan Stevens is genius

This Is Agatha at her best! Very intriguing, very wicked...but I'm not sure I would have enjoyed it nearly as much with a lesser narrator.
I knew Dan Stevens was a good actor, but I had no idea he was a GREAT actor. Clearly he has worked on his voice and vocal characterisations so much so that he has become incredibly facile and believable as so many diverse characters in this book. I might go so far as to say he is the best I have ever heard.
This was worth a credit, even though I got it on sale.

Stevens deserves higher than 5-star rating!

Wow...what a thriller. I don't think I've ever been made so nervous in a murder mystery before. And I had little clue the entire way through, until something mentioned in passing by the police in the penultimate chapter perked up my suspicions- but even then I hadn't put it all together (I had really stopped trying very hard to figure it out once the doctor was found... just waiting it out until the unveil at that point). Sent shivers down my spine nearly the whole 6 hours. That nursery rhyme was well selected; I still feel a little haunted by it... The constant murder countdown, one by one slowly and inevitably...

Dan Stevens, hats off to you! If I hadn't known better, I could have thought there was a full cast reading this, rather than a single person supplying over a dozen voices. Stevens is one of the only male narrators I have heard able to voice multiple female characters so well and consistently, without trouble distinguishing between them or sounding too high-pitched or forced. Masterfully done, seamless character transitions, and fantastically carried out the emotion of every scene -not just of individuals, but the atmosphere. From the initial curiosity and disbelief, to the suspicion and weariness, he made it palpable, as if you were right there on the island with them... It was one of the most marvelous performances I have ever heard, rivaled only by Stevens' own narration of Murder on the Orient Express. If I could give him more than 5 stars, I would!

A wonderful chilling suspense mystery. Gotta love the timing of a thunderstorm as I read the last chapters... A great read, which I will gladly revisit in future, especially since my heartbeat has returned to normal now...
