    Inhaltsangabe

    Romance, adventure, and train travel can all be a little bit dangerous, especially in the hands of Agatha Christie.

    The Man in the Brown Suit: Pretty young Anne came to London looking for adventure. In fact, adventure comes looking for her - and finds her immediately at Hyde Park Corner tube station. Anne is present on the platform when a thin man, reeking of mothballs, loses his balance and is electrocuted on the rails.

    The Scotland Yard verdict is accidental death. But Anne is not satisfied. After all, who was the man in the brown suit who examined the body? And why did he race off, leaving a cryptic message behind: "17-122 Kilmorden Castle"?

    4:50 From Paddington: For an instant the two trains ran together, side by side. In that frozen moment, Elspeth witnessed a murder. Helplessly, she stared out of her carriage window as a man remorselessly tightened his grip around a woman's throat. The body crumpled. Then the other train drew away.

    But who, apart from Miss Marple, would take her story seriously? After all, there were no suspects, no other witnesses...and no corpse.

    This title was previously published as What Mrs. McGrillicuddy Saw!

    First reader good, second not!

    I don't want to rate the stories itself because when you like Agatha Christie you'll like those books. They are, after all, wonderfully typical books by the queen of crime.
    But I wasn't very happy with the reader of the second book. The first one (Man in the brown suit) was a good reader, liked her clear voice very much although she tried too hard to mimic all men's voices. But you got used to it.
    But the second reader was simply annoying. The sound was bad, the voice not clear like she constantly had something in her mouth while talking. I could hardly stand her talking. One of the worst readers I've ever listened to.

    Two narrators of very different quality

    The first book both very well written and exceptionally narrated. The narrator is very talented, employing different intonations, accents and tones of voice to make the book come alive and help the listener understand what is going on.

    The second book is quite the opposite. The book features an extremely flat, foreseeable storyline. But what really makes the book a pain to listen to is, I’m afraid, the narrator. She has a nice voice for an old lady and makes a splendid elderly Miss Marple. Sadly she reads the story with such monotony that it’s very hard to follow the plot because all the voices sound the same.

    The quality of the recording is surprisingly poor too. It sounds as though the narrator were mumbling into a shoebox.
