Publisher's Summary

Beautiful young Elinor Carlisle stands serenely in the dock, accused of the murder of Mary Gerrard, her rival in love. The evidence is damning: only Elinor had the motive, the opportunity, and the means to administer the fatal poison. Yet, inside the hostile courtroom, one man still presumes Elinor is innocent until proven guilty: Hercule Poirot, who is all that stands between Elinor and the gallows.

Brilliantly told

Would you listen to Sad Cypress again? Why?

Yes and I already have. Well told narrative, with excellent character profiling. A great tale by Agatha Christie.

A worthwhile listen

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Worth listening for its story and characters.

Would you be willing to try another book from Agatha Christie? Why or why not?

I'm keen to read more Christie for the setting, mystery, and characters.

Have you listened to any of David Suchet’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

David Suchet is excellent - I'm choosing Christie novels based on his brilliant performances! This one did not disappoint.

Hmmm

David Suchet is a surprisingly bad narrator. He is a wonderful Poirot, or course, but his voice for other characters is very poor, stilted, accents weak. Not a patch on Hugh Fraser's narration.

Good story, poor performance.

What did you like best about Sad Cypress? What did you like least?

I enjoyed the story a lot more than I thought. However, the poor quality of narration really spoiled it for me, especially with it being David Suchet whom I admire as an actor.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Sad Cypress?

When the cunning of the murderer was revealed.

If this book were a film would you go see it?

No. I liked the story but not that much.

Any additional comments?

I do wonder if the problem was with the narrator or a problem with the audio recording itself.

Enjoyable but implausible

A classic Christie, though the plot is a little weak. I enjoyed the characters and papa Poirot.
A word of advice to David Suchet; SPEAK UP!! I understand that murmuring may convey some dramatic flourish. But it also makes the book impossible to hear properly.
