Just ok for me nothing too shocking

Took me five hours to listen to this 60 min audiobook. With Agatha Christie I've found that there is a lot of information given in a short time. I had to pay the utmost attention because there is no filler words here. If my mind wondered or someone spoke to me I would have to skip back.

This is my 2nd story from Agatha. While I wasn't as impressed with this one I still enjoy the twist and uniqueness of her investigative writing. Definitely will read more of her work soon.

I Great story and plot.

I liked the story and plot, plus the trickery. I thought someone was going to
be poisoned by the puddings.
