Good stories, but Joan Hickson only narrates some

I bought this book because of the narrator. In my mind, Joan Hickson is Miss Marple. Therefore, I enjoyed most of the short stories, but was a bit dissapointed, when I found out that the last two were narrated by a different actress. Not that she was bad, it just wasn't the same.

Wonderful Joan Hickson & Agatha Christie; but poorly published and useless indexing

Five stars to the writer and five stars to Joan Hickson who really was the quintessential Miss Jane Marple. And lovely to hear the stories told again by her.
But a woeful effort by Harper Collins who clearly don't give a fig for the convenience of their listening audience. The volume is a collection of stories and clearly some are longer than others. But that is no reason for the careless idiotic editing used for the chapter indexing. By all means split the chapters into smaller sizes, but for heavens sake ensure that each new story does start with a new index position. All that Harper Collins have done is to take the entire disk and divide it into roughly 20 minute sections - so it is virtually impossible to find the start of a story you want to listen to. And just to make it even more difficult for the listener, they haven't even bothered to give names to the Chapters. In 2015 there is no excuse for a large publishing house to treat its customers so deplorably in the manufacturing of Audio Books. Perhaps the clout of Amazon could give them a kick where they need it - their revenues - to improve the customer listening experience.
