I love this audiobook. The short stories lend themselves very well to listening and the narration is excellent. Both Hugh Fraser and David Suchet narrate (separate short stories) and they are by far my favourite narrators. have listened to this book multiple times.

My only complaint with this audiobook is that the stories are much too short. Otherwise, another fantastic collection deserving of a listen again and again.
P.S. most of the narration is by David Suchet - most people commenting seem to think he speaks like his charactor - he doesn't. Go listen to an interview on YouTube of his natural speaking voice and you'll recognise him in all these stories.
A great collection of classic Poirot stories which held my attention in each case. Lovely to listen to as each case was well written, as is to be excepted in the case of an Agatha Christie work, and each had a nice plot twist.
I was also excited to see it was read by Hugh Fraser and David Suchet, who play Capt Hastings and Poirot in the TV series; however my enjoyment of this audiobook was marred by the fact that not every case included David Suchet's performance as Poirot and one was not even narrated by either Fraser or Sachet. I couldn't help but feel slightly cheated because, as far as I was aware, the description do not mention the changing narrators etc. It didn't ruin the book completely but did leave me feel fairly aggrieved!

I purchased this as a relaxing book.
There's numerous different stories right from the beginning of Agatha Christie career, if you're a keen reader of Agatha Christie you may find that somethings sound familiar this is where later on she expended the short story into a full length book. It was really easy to listen to and it gives you an insight into Agatha Christie earlier stories

Excellent storytelling in the best style of Hecule Poirot. Hugh Fraser and David Suchet provide a fantastic reminiscence into these wonderful stories.
