This version is very close to the book. I enjoy it very much. It is one of my favorite stories. The actors did a fine job and they are the voices I hear when I read the full story.

This was one of Agatha Christie's later books and generally they aren't as involving or convincing as those from the 30's or 40's, but I'm happy to say that I think this one bucks the trend.
The main protagonist, Mark Easterbrook, is played with a convincing mix of suavity and inquisitiveness by Jeremy Clyde, and Ariadne Oliver (here more than ever obviously based on AC herself) is brought to life superbly by Stephanie Cole. I think she brings a sense of exasperation, muddle-headedness and practical common sense to the role - which I think suits the character well.
The story doesn't really lend itself to a full book, which is probably why it works so well here as a dramatisation. There's just enough pointers in the dialogue and in the use of music to hint that the setting is the late 50's, which I think helps with the atmosphere.
This isn't the normal Poirot or Marple story but for someone looking for a fun, engaging cast and a slightly macabre (but not supernatural) play then you should definitely give it a go!

I very much enjoyed this audio book. It's one of my favourite stories. I can listen to the dramatisation of this book on a regular basis. I like the twists and turns of the story and how the actors seem to really connect with the characters.
