The Joan Hickson Miss Marple series was a staple in my house when I was little, and I was always quite fond of watching them. All except A Pocket Full of Rye. That one always felt too gory. It scared the hell out of younger me.
So purchasing this audio was by way of being an act of courage as well as an attempt at a corrective experience... and I must say it worked out marvelously.
Ms. Hickson is a marvel. Engaging, dramatic, subtly-voiced and remarkably skillful at bringing to life this terrible tale of murder and malice. She's taken my once-avoided source of dismay and transformed it into an instant favorite.
I very much recommend it. Worth every penny.
Yet again Joan Hickson's perfect clipped English diction makes for wonderful listening. She is the perfect Agatha Christie narrator and tells this story beautifully. Very well written, keeps you guessing.
So I'm biased but I simply love Joan Hickson narrating this series of books. Miss Marple has always been my favourite Christie character and to find the series narrated by Joan Hickson is a bonus. Christie fans you simply can't go wrong!

I just love Joan Hickson's narration and although I knew from the tv series who the murderer was, I still enjoyed it thoroughly.
