Hugh Fraser does it again

Would you listen to The Mystery of the Blue Train again? Why?

The Mystery of the Blue Train is one of my favourite Christie novels, and I think Hugh Fraser did a wonderful job mimicking David Suchet's Poirot voice, as well as making the women sound normal instead of overly feminine.

What other book might you compare The Mystery of the Blue Train to and why?

And Then There Were None, narrated by the same actor, but with no Poirot, so no fallback character. A wonderfully creepy rendition of Justice Wargrave.

What about Hugh Fraser’s performance did you like?

Wonderfully varied in voice, with each character distinct by sound alone, and his natural voice is perfect for narrating.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Katherine tells Poirot she can't go on, Hugh Fraser captures the distress in her voice in a perfect, yet understated, manner.

Any additional comments?

Would recommend to anyone and everyone - thoroughly enjoyable!
