Repackaged version of 2010 dramatisations

I was a bit disappointed in finding out that this is just a repackaged version of the BBC dramatisations that came out in 2010 . Some of them are good but some of them are just fair . Perhaps it is because I just didn't like some of the stories . The only good thing about this audio is that you get all 12 stories at once instead of having to purchase them separately on this same site .

Twelve Radio Mysteries

I don't often like updates of Agatha Christie's work, I prefer them set in their original decades. However this volume has been updated with care and is still a joy to listen to

Too Little Provided

I love myself some Agatha Christie Mysteries. I try, but I haven't won a case yet! This production didn't do her justice. It didn't include enough of the mystery to make it enjoyable. It skipped too much. Just didn't help connect the dots. More frustrating than enjoyable.

Campy

Short stories alone were disappointing but the effort to recreate in a modern time was contradictions of all things Agatha Christie.
