Publisher's Summary

Beautiful young Elinor Carlisle stands serenely in the dock, accused of the murder of Mary Gerrard, her rival in love. The evidence is damning: only Elinor had the motive, the opportunity, and the means to administer the fatal poison. Yet, inside the hostile courtroom, one man still presumes Elinor is innocent until proven guilty: Hercule Poirot, who is all that stands between Elinor and the gallows.

David Suchet is a surprisingly bad narrator. He is a wonderful Poirot, or course, but his voice for other characters is very poor, stilted, accents weak. Not a patch on Hugh Fraser's narration.

Good story, poor performance.

What did you like best about Sad Cypress? What did you like least?

I enjoyed the story a lot more than I thought. However, the poor quality of narration really spoiled it for me, especially with it being David Suchet whom I admire as an actor.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Sad Cypress?

When the cunning of the murderer was revealed.

If this book were a film would you go see it?

No. I liked the story but not that much.

Any additional comments?

I do wonder if the problem was with the narrator or a problem with the audio recording itself.
