I listened to this on audiobook, and it was narrated by Hugh Fraser
, the actor who played Hastings in Agatha Christie's Poirot
. He was simply an outstanding narrator, and brought the characters of Poirot and Hastings to life. Very well done!
Unfortunately, as my friend Dolly
notes in her review
, this mystery was pretty easy to solve. Still, I have to admire the layers that Christie puts into her reveals; It's never, "poof, here's the bad guy, mystery solved, we can all go home now," there is always something much more than what meets the eye that makes her reveals rich and satisfying. Peril At End House was no exception to that. I also adore her banter between Poirot and Hastings; something that I didn't get when I was young, but greatly appreciate now.
