I love Agatha Christie, but this was one of her more boring works. It picked up near the end, but before that I was honestly considering returning it. Not only that but there were quite a few unanswered questions that really bothered me.

And on the audiobook side, the narrator was decent but not as good as the narrator for Murder at the Vicarage, which I consider to be the Gold Standard of Christie Audiobooks. He also had a tendency to mumble once or twice, which meant I missed a few snippets of dialogue, but nothing that sounded very important. I will say that the man's Poirot voice was very good.
