What did you love best about Parker Pyne Investigates?
The different stories and characters. Not a real detective story per se
What did you like best about this story?
The period details. Flappers and such like. One of Pyne's employees referred to as a 'vamp'
Which character – as performed by Hugh Fraser – was your favorite?
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It did both. I very much enjoyed this book and also The Mysterious Mr. Quinn.
Any additional comments?
As much as I enjoy her detective novels I think a lot of readers/listeners miss the boat by not checking out Miss Christie's short stories. She had a real gift for writing them especially ones with a twist in the end.

Hugh Fraser does a fine job, but many of the stories were less than gripping. They were all fairly comic, though, so the book is amusing, and occasionally, Christie's delightful sense of humor and self-deprecation peeks through, as when a character takes a break from Greek ruins to spend an afternoon reading a thriller.
