One of Christie’s best novels in clear Italian.
I don’t much like the background music which seems to accompany Audiobooks in Italian I’ve heard, but the narrators speak clearly (manic laughter apart!) which is important if you’re listening to a book in a third language.
The familiar format and context are useful for a language learner, and the novel is amongst Christie’s best - she did write some dreadful potboilers!
Unfortunately the Italian versions seem to have retained some attitudes we now find offensive, redacted from Anglophone editions, which shock more than the murders!
I don’t know if the well-to-do or aristocracy of “old England” were as obnoxious as she portrays them, and since their world, if it ever existed as she writes it, has long gone with the wind, I prefer to take them as interesting aliens.
