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.

A Treat for your "Little Grey Cells"

This compilation of Poirot mysteries is extremely well done. The voice actors do a great job of bringing the stories to life- and the music and sound effects enhance the listening experience. I like that these are radio plays instead of audiobooks- I love Christie's novels but these are much more fast paced. A few details get left out but the twists and turns Christie is known for are all still there. In this collection you get some of the best Poirot stories- my favorites being The Murder on the Orient Express and The Murder of Roger Akroyd. I'd recommend this collection to any mystery fan- it's a great intro to Agatha Christie's most famous detective and his most puzzling cases.

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

Great but...

Why oh why do Audible seem to be incapable of producing box sets which tell you where you are? There are 8 stories & all we get is Chapter 1, Chapter 2, Chapter 3 etc. What happens if the listener wants to listen to, for example, Murder in The Orient Express first?
It is ridiculous not to break up a box set into the actual stories, or at least to give The listener a clue!
The performances themselves are excellent, but I cannot give 5 stars due to the impossibility of choosing which story one listens to.

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.
