Kind of like a "Pinky and the Brain" story

Where does Destination Unknown rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Average.


Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes, because Agatha Christie never fails to deliver. But the story is quite cheesy and predictable at times.


Which character – as performed by Emilia Fox – was your favorite?

Aristides! She could really portrait him as a Marvel villain.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes.


Any additional comments?

It's a good book, but not your typical Agatha Christie. The story doesn't hold all that well and the villain is quite cartoonish. Several loose ends. But it must have something to it, because I had read it many years ago and I could still remember parts of it. I think the first time I read it I thought it was better.

Typical Agatha Christie Fare

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I don't think that everyone would be interested in Agatha Christie. Her early works are her strongest, but she goes downhill in her later years.


What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The storyline wasn't too bad, but by the end, it was rather predictable.


Have you listened to any of Emilia Fox’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

She did a good job with the reading. I would listen to something else by her.


If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Perhaps...
