Publisher's Summary

In appearance Hercule Poirot hardly resembled an ancient Greek hero. Yet, reasoned the detective, like Hercules he had been responsible for ridding society of some of its most unpleasant monsters.So, in the period leading up to his retirement, Poirot made up his mind to accept just 12 more cases: his self-imposed "labours", all detailed in this short-story collection. Each would go down in the annals of crime as a heroic feat of deduction.

Good Stories

Hi. These are fun stories, the odd one is a bit weaker then the rest but overall 9 Poirot stories which are great fun.

They are only around 40 minutes in length so it's easy to sit down and listen to one story at a time.

Well worth a listen, and nicely read.

Much enjoyed

What made the experience of listening to The Labours of Hercules the most enjoyable?

Short stories would seem to be Agatha Christie's forte, and these do not disappoint. The stories themselves are highly enjoyable and relatively easy to follow, and the narration is excellent. These stories can be listened to time and again without boredom beginning to sink in, and I would highly recommend this audiobook to any Christie fan.
