Excellent performances

Would you consider the audio edition of Poirot's Finest Cases to be better than the print version?

No, because these stories are abridged.

What did you like best about this story?

Agatha Christie's books are always a pleasure, including the selections on this audiobook.

Have you listened to any of John Moffat and Full Cast ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have listened to a number and they are all very good.

Any additional comments?

I suggest reading the books first. Because these are abridged, if you are not familiar with the full book there is a sense of gaps in the plots. It is most noticeable in the ABC Murders, After the Funeral, and The Mysterious Affair at Styles.

John Moffat as Poirot is always wonderful.

Would you try another book from Agatha Christie and/or John Moffat and Full Cast ?

Of course. I have a large selection of them already- this purchase was to upgrade some cassette recordings to digital. I shall do more and I will continue to purchase programs I don't already own.

What did you like best about this story?

MIchael Bakewell does a great job adapting Christie's work and the performances are always first rate. I love the books but this allows me to revisit them without committing a huge amount of time. They're great for road trips as well.

Have you listened to any of John Moffat and Full Cast ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have enjoyed many of Moffat's performances before. In my opinion he and David Suchet are the best Poirot's ever- and I would have a hard time choosing a favorite between the two. Moffat is wonderful for this medium but he wouldn't work visually. His performance is spot on.

Do you think Poirot’s Finest Cases needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

A volume two would be nice, but I probably have many of them already. I'd probably still buy it.

Any additional comments?

If you're an Agatha Christie fan the BBC dramas are a great way to get to know her stories, if you're not going to sit down and read the books themselves that is. They have the tone and flavor of her books and are beautifully adapted- even the shorter ones. The Murder Of Roger Ackroyd is a favorite book and radio drama, wonderfully adapted with great performances.<br/><br/>This purchase would cost nearly $70 if bought separately. The price here is great. Go for it! Buy it now!

As good as David Suchet is on the TV

Any additional comments?

I have always loved Poirot on TV and John Moffat plays the role fantastically well - despite knowing the stories I am always drawn into the plots and drama

Excellent cast recordings of classic mysteries

What made the experience of listening to Poirot's Finest Cases the most enjoyable?

Really nice casting, good acting, and good scripting.

What did you like best about this story?

These are some of Agatha Christie's most famous mysteries.

What does John Moffat and Full Cast bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I like to listen to this book while relaxing at home or to fall asleep if I'm travelling or having trouble sleeping. These books are ideal for that. I can listen to the same stories again and again and enjoy them.

great fun

at first it was jarring because i am uses to the more recent adaptations, but once i got used to different voices from these old radio plays i loved hearing the stories played out with lots of humour and drama.
