Listener Opinions

    " Quite enjoyed this farce, funnier than Agatha Christie's usual work. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Peter | 1/31/2014

    " Based on a Christie play which opened in December 1954, Spider's Web is a hidden passage mystery with a large dash of humour (it was originally written for actress Margaret Lockwood). The only draw-back to this novelisation is that, at the start it reads like a play with the scene directions written out and bits filled in to make it flow. Towards the end, however, you forget the story's origins and just enjoy the fun! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynn | 1/22/2014

    " An Agatha Christie play that was transformed to novel format after her death. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dominika Daniluk-Gluchy | 1/17/2014

    " It took more than half a book to get used to the language (almost to simple for me) but the book itself was really good so was the story. As it was my first book by Agatha Christie I have to say I am definitely hooked now:) Can't wait to read another one! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vinita | 1/17/2014

    " It is a decent read for a mystery, but being a Poirot fan I still rate Poirot mysteries by Agatha Christie higher. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarahb. | 12/15/2013

    " What an enjoyable little book--a good mystery read. It reminded me of the play "Mousetrap". You know what happened, but can't quite put all the pieces together till the very end! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Claire | 12/12/2013

    " i listened to the audio book read by hugh frasier. excellent! it was only 4 disks so it seemed to go way too fast. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tati | 11/26/2013

    " It's a play by Agatha Christie that was changed in to a novel by Charles Osborne "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Terry | 11/19/2013

    " It was a silly mystery, but fun for vacation. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Becky | 11/11/2013

    " My husband and I bought this book to read in the summer for whenever we went to the beach, it was so incredibly boring that it took us 3 years to finish it. It's only saving grace was that the ending wasn't what I expected. Most Agatha Christie books I have read have been terribly predictable. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Barbara | 10/14/2013

    " The dialogue (by Christie) was sharp, the rest (by Osborne) not so much. As a play, I think this would be very entertaining. As a novel, it was rather slight. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandra | 6/20/2013

    " I'm always amazed when I read Agatha Christie at how carefully her plots are woven. This is a quick read, but be sure to pay attention to the details. They're all important. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 George | 5/31/2013

    " A mystery with humor about a murder and the complications that result when people, with good intentions, attempt to scheme their way around it and the resulting mess they create. Not the usual A. Christie mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mynnette Kitchen | 5/28/2013

    " I was more ok with this adaptation than Black Coffee, as there are no known and beloved characters in this one. It was a fun read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laurie | 5/9/2013

    " This is a fun-filled romp about a woman,( who when telling the truth no one believes) who discovers a body in her home and begins to think of a plan to get rid of it. It's an enjoyably entertaining read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ed | 3/21/2013

    " An adaptation of a Christie stage play by another author. The story is engaging and the characters are fun. The non-dialog was a bit overwritten and didn't quite have her style. Pretty good overall, though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lady Knight | 1/30/2013

    " Certainly a fun read and a nice addition to the Christie cannon. One can easily tell this was adapted from a stage play however, some of the descriptions given of settings and actions are very stilted. Nonetheless, I greatly enjoyed the mystery! 3.5 / 5 stars. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachelh | 10/29/2012

    " Nice and light, very amusing! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lubna | 9/11/2012

    " I loved this novel very much , and it was so special to me , it was the first REAL novel i read in 6th grade , before it i was reading "Lizzie McGuire" , "Mary Kate Ashley" , "Sweet Valley Junior High" and other kiddie books , it was kind of a shift in my life , I loved it <3 "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Holli | 7/10/2012

    " I thought this book was delightful. It wasn't the who-done-it I thought it would be. The mystery was more to fill in the holes. But I thought it was delightfully funny and clever. This book had me smiling and even laughing out loud. "
