Poirot is one of Christie's most famous and long-lived characters, appearing in 33 novels and more than 50 short stories published between 1920 and 1975. He has been portrayed on radio, on screen, for films and television. I have read, watched, and listened to this unique dandified detective solve crimes for years, and always enjoy him. I also enjoy Agatha Christie's Miss Marple.
Although I have seen "Death On The Nile" on television it has been a long time ago and I enjoyed listening to it again. I never tire of Christie's unique detective stories. They are interesting without the blood and gore of most modern detectives. If you are one who likes to follow the clues to try to discover who the killer is before he/she is revealed you'll enjoy "Death On The Nile" with its trail of suspects.
When Agatha Christie audiobooks are on sale they're a given for me. Her short stories are a nice break from the 10 -12 hour books I normally listen to. I've always enjoyed a good whodunit, and Christie leads the rest.
If you've never heard her stories "Death On The Nile" would be a good one to start with. It's a keeper.

My wife committed that, this was like listening to a movie. The acting was very well done and the story was good. Mostly it made me want to go on a cruise again. Agatha Christie has become a perfect compromise for my wife and I. She does not like Science Fiction or Horror like I do and I am not a big fan of Russian Literature. The Christie books give a good look into the past, are entertaining and can be listened to in whole on a three hour trip to Kansas City from Springfield, Mo. I like this done in play form, seems to make it come alive. Hercule Poirot is a hoot. He is a great detective and if you don't believe me, he will be the first to tell you he is.

I absolutely love listening to these dramatisations. Especially if it's an Agatha Christie! She really did know how to put a good story together. Can listen to it time and again and still be captivated by it. John Moffatt was an excellent Poirot. Would happily recommend listening to it. Have seen the adaptations on TV but this was even better.
Superb performance by John Moffatt and, indeed, the whole cast. A classic brought to life in the best possible way. Hugely enjoyable and does not disappoint. Definitely a performance that I will revisit over again.
