A Classic Mystery, dramatized by Audible

Important note - This is a dramatized audio book, not a direct reading of the novel. Which means, this is a novel acted out by a full cast of actors, and is slightly shorter than the full reading would be. Personally, I LOVE dramatized audio, but some may not. Listen to the sample to see what it's like.

Ok, my review: I love Agatha Christie, and have listened to most of the Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot classics, either the full version or the dramatized version. I have also read and listened to (and watched!) Murder on the Orient Express, so, while this is an amazing classic mystery, I actually knew the story. And I still loved it! The characters are so rich, the acting is superb, and Poirot is such a delightful treat at any time.

This book throws no surprises, and sticks exactly to the plot of the novel.

This is an Audible Original dramatized book; there is an earlier dramatized version available, by the BBC and featuring John Moffat as Poirot here:

You may also opt for the full novel instead. There is one read by Kenneth Branagh here on Audible.com here

Very Entertaining But Not an Unabridged Book.

I found the performance quite enjoyable but I prefer unabridged audiobooks so I own both versions. I look forward to listening to the full story soon so I can better judge this abridged audiobook. The Poirot performance was uniquely done. His reactions of amused chuckles were unexpected but interesting.

Excellent production of Murder on the Orient Express

I really enjoyed this production of MOTOE. It took me a little while to get used to Tom Conti as Poirot as I’m so used to David Suchet, but as you immerse yourself more in the story I got fully onboard. Great cast and very well acted, the sound effects and music were also excellent and sounded wonderful on my large speaker when listening at home. Thoroughly enjoyable listen, I hope there are more to come - Death on the Nile next please!
