Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sheila Beaumont | 2/20/2014

    " A delightfully improbable comic tale of murder, Ruritanian (or, in this case, Herzoslovakian) political intrigue, jewel thieves, and confused identities. Set mostly at an English country house called Chimneys, this book is what Christie referred to as "a lighthearted thriller" and is a departure from her usual detective novels featuring Hercule Poirot or Miss Marple. The wonderfully satisfying ending, in which the culprits and characters' true identities are revealed, is most unlikely, and hilarious. Great fun, highly recommended. "

    " I found Anthony Cade to be utterly charming, and this novel to be a lot of fun. Great plot-wonderful twists and a bevy of fabulous characters. I found myself grinning from ear to ear reading this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Ann | 2/16/2014

    " Good old Agatha "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Seeta Iyer | 2/2/2014

    " The mystery builds till the end and even at the end the knot is beautifully untied. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Godlarvae | 1/29/2014

    " A DELIGHTFUL IF CONFUSING ROMP "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelsy | 1/20/2014

    " I find all of Agatha's books to be extremely diverting...and this was no exception. This one has no famous detective and the feel and flow of it were different than most of her other books and though I adore Poirot and Miss Marple, this offered a nice change of pace. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lemon | 12/19/2013

    " Great book, another AC that had my jaws open. I still don't understand the ending telephone call from bill. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynn | 12/11/2013

    " Another Christie book I quite enjoyed. "

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

    " Its one of the greatest book of Agatha. And the story is different than the other books. Some points are guessable if you can catch the clues, but anyway it makes you to think about it whenever you don't read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan | 11/29/2013

    " Was watching the BBC production and wanted to read the actual novel. They often do interesting takes depending on the actors/actresses. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joe Clemons | 11/18/2013

    " not one of Agatha's greats. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Briel | 11/13/2013

    " I read this while in Spain, and very much enjoyed the story. While a satire, it still rang true to so many things today. Seemed much more political than Christie is typically. A jolly good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jc | 11/12/2013

    " Not the best of Agatha Christie's mysteries, but still a very entertaining one. As many of her non-Poirot/Marple books, this one is more adventure than mystery and introduces a few characters that return in later stories, such as Inspector Battle. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bookworm1858 | 10/14/2013

    " There were some confusing parts with the names but Anthony Cade is quite charming. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alberthe | 5/2/2013

    " The audiobook is also great. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joycey | 12/23/2012

    " I loved this book more than the second one, which I read first; I was very sad to see this one end. I'm definitely enjoying the marriage of humor and mystery in the Superintendent Battle series so far. Hopefully it will continue. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julia | 10/8/2012

    " Loved it, but missed Poirot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michele | 8/17/2012

    " Good old Christie with murder in a historic country home. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathie Hagen | 8/11/2012

    " Quite a slog for me although I usually adore Agatha Christie. Don't like this one or another one with Bundle, The Seven Dials Mystery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meave | 6/27/2012

    " Oh honestly. The mystery was clever enough but, "My belief in the brotherhood of man died the day I arrived in London last week, when I observed the people standing in a Tube train resolutely refuse to move up and make room for those who entered." SHUT UP FOREVER, you horrible child. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 6/21/2012

    " Quite enjoyable reading and the main character was very interesting. Although, as customarly there were revelations at the end that were supressed from the reader. "
