Unbearable horrible reading

Emilia Fox did a fine performance of this early, 1924 Agatha Christie's.
I couldn't even finish this one.
Liking the novel I was looking forward to listening to a newer version.
Awful, and the worst is that now we can't return them to Audible.
If you're new to the novel, get the old version by Emilia Fox. She's good.
This one isn't.

Enjoyed Story

Loved the story but the female narrator was not. As with all Agatha Christie novels I was gripped.

Murder on the tube London

Gertrude Colette's Narration is impeccable.
Agatha Christie weaves a tale of a bold amateur sleuth that's entertaining and convincing.

Someone should have looked up the k-word. yikes.

Great story, but someone dropped the ball on the language. Incredibly jarring to hear the k-word (equivalent to the n-word) used over and over to describe black South Africans. This kind of language is typically edited out of Christie stories. I'm pretty disappointed.
