Reading progress update: I've listened 92 out of 347 minutes.
Three Act Tragedy (Audio) - Agatha Christie,Hugh Fraser

Hmm, I don´t think I would be thrilled by a nickname like Egg. Even though it becomes much more charming when it is the mademoiselle Egg. 

 

I enjoy listening to this so much, I´m glad I choose this book as my next reread (relisten).

The Body in the Library
The Body in the Library (Audio) - Agatha Christie,Stephanie Cole

A fantastic Miss Marple, which has definitely improved for me on this reread. The mystery is wonderfully twisted and I´m still in awe how Miss Marple has been able to solve the murder. Miss Marple is amazing! And I particularly enjoyed that the vicar and his wife Griselda made an appearance as well in this book. 

 

I listened to the audiobook, narrated by Stephanie Cole. I have never listened to a narration by her before, but I really liked listening to it. I especially loved her voice for Miss Marple, which is kind and understanding. The way I imagine her voice to be.

Murder in the Mews
Murder in the Mews (Hercule Poirot, #18) - Agatha Christie

Murder in the Mews comprises of four short stories / novellas, a format which I normally struggle with. But I really liked the majority of these stories, despite the last one called "Triangle at Rhodes". I found that one quite boring.

My favorite story "Dead Man´s Mirror" was also the longest one in this collection, which shows that I prefer my Christie stories to be one the longer side. That story had to right amount of Poirot godness and family drama to keep my thoroughly entertained.

Murder in the Mews (Hercule Poirot, #18) - Agatha Christie

I just started reading the third novella "Dead Man´s Mirror" in this collection, which features a Mr Satterthwaite. I know I met this character before in a Christie book, but I cannot remember which one it is and I have completely forgotten the storyline he was involved in. I guess it´s a good thing I´m rereading all of the books on audio.

The Murder of Roger Ackroyd
The Murder of Roger Ackroyd: A Hercule Poirot Mystery (Audio) - Agatha Christie,Hugh Fraser

What can I say about this book that hasn´t been said before innumerable times. This is an excellent mystery, the plot is cleverly crafted and it simply is one of Christie´s best.

 

And yet it isn´t one of my favorite mysteries by Dame Agatha and I don´t know exactly the reason for my feeling so. One reason might be that I didn´t feel deeply connected to the characters. And more often than not my favorite mysteries by Agatha Christie are those, which have a tragic ending and in which I become deeply moved by the fate of the characters. Or who knows, maybe I just missed poor, old Hastings a whole lot in this one.
