Summary

The tranquillity of a cruise along the Nile was shattered by the discovery that Linnet Ridgeway had been shot through the head. She was young, stylish, and beautiful. A girl who had everything...until she lost her life. Hercule Poirot recalled an earlier outburst by a fellow passenger: "I'd like to put my dear little pistol against her head and just press the trigger." Yet in this exotic setting nothing was ever quite what it seemed.

David Suchet narrating Poirot is a must!

Superb narration of one of my favourite Poirot stories. Poirot is brought to life in this retelling.

A generally pleasant listen.

Would recommend this book to a friend but it does require some suspension of disbelief. Also the characters are very Christie and whether or not you see that as positive or negative is up to you.

Poirot read by Suchet - this could never go wrong!

David Suchet is practically synonymous with Agatha Christie's Poirot, so it's simply wonderful that this audiobook is read by Suchet. His characterisations are perfect, subtle and entertaining, which make these audiobooks great listening. Dive in and enjoy this tale of mystery and murder of the picturesque River Nile, you'll be spellbound.

I Loved it!

Would you consider the audio edition of Death on the Nile to be better than the print version?

i enjoyed listening to this story on my iphone laying in my hammock sipping on a pims

What did you like best about this story?

I love the clever twists in this story and of course the characters are colorful and vivid.

Have you listened to any of David Suchet’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

David Suchet has come to be the voice of Poirot for me, his narration of the this classic transported me to a time i never knew yet fell in love with.
