An Entertaining Collection

This collection of short stories was wildly entertaining. Poirot and Hastings are involved in cases ranging from theft, murder, greed and revenge. Agatha Christie is one of my favorite authors, and will always be known as a world renowned writer where one will never tire of her adventures.

Richard Armitage's interpretation of Poirot and Hastings was delightful. His uncommon range of voices gave each character a life off the written page.

Delightful collection of Christie's Poirot tales

The real hero of this group of short Poirot mysteries is it's performer, Richard Armitage, without whose spirited narration they might go somewhat limp. I continue to be amazed at how well he channels David Suchet, which only adds to the fun.

Most enjoyable

If you are a Christie fan, These stories are wonderful and made all the better with the reading by Richard Armitage. Hugh Fraser is probably still the 10, with Richard Armitage a 9.75!
