Emilia Fox ruins another Agatha Christie
I enjoyed the mystery and the characters, as I nearly always do with Agatha Christie.
Emilia Fox is absolutely the worst. I have listened to a lot of her performances, as she does most of the Miss Marples and a Poirot, and several of the stand-alone mysteries. Her narration is okay, but her voices make me want to break things. Why she thinks she needs to talk in a squeaky, completely affected voice for her female characters I will never understand. Her male voices aren't great either, which isn't entirely her fault, but she always manages to make male characters who are just normal people sound like utter weirdos. I wish she would give more thought to what people actually sound like and not try to make up silly voices for so many characters.
Interesting story, lackluster performance.
