One for Christie fans only Being a big fan of Agatha Christie (even my cats are called Tommy & Tuppence!), I expected to enjoy this collection. However, I’m afraid I found it a little disappointing. While some of the stories were near to her usual standard, it seemed to me that some of the others had only been included as padding.

Early works with commentary. This collection is of some of her earliest works, with commentary on the background of either the story itself or the circumstances around publication. Many of these have appeared reworked in other collections, some of them have appeared as-is, I don’t believe any of them are not available elsewhere. The originals are interesting because they show some of the creative process and editorial impact, especially if you have read the other versions.

This is the listing for the 2 cd set. NOT ALL STORIES are included! Even though the book has nine stories this two cd set, narrated by Isla Blair, only has 5 stories !
