Compulsive listening

This adaptation is brilliant achievement that keeps you actively involved from start to end. The acting is wonderfully subtle, offering some new perspectives on very familiar characters. I really enjoyed it and would recommend it with all my heart to those who want to feel good for a couple of days.

Mystery Plus Archeology

Would you consider the audio edition of Murder in Mesopotamia (Dramatised) to be better than the print version?

I enjoyed both versions. The audio edition version has merit because it brings the characters to life. It is like listening to a play.

What did you like best about this story?

I like the nurse who narrated the story. I thought the solution to the mystery was plausible but unexpected.

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

I have listened to all of his audio book portrayals of this character. He is a very competent Hercules Poirot.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

A deadly mix of mystery and archaeology.

Any additional comments?

I like the stories set in exotic locales. I also liked the archaeology aspects of the story.
