Had to return - terrible narration

I could just about cope with an American voice narrating the story, but I couldn't cope with hearing Eton pronounced "Etton"; then Caterham pronounced Catterham finished me off.

Typical Agatha Christie…engaging story, characters, ending full of surprising twists and turns

I’ve listened to quite a few audio books, many being Agatha Christie stories, and I don’t believe I’ve heard any better narration than what Jonathan Waters performed in The Secret of Chimneys. He has an astounding repertoire of voices, all of them very believable and excellently done. The story is pretty complex, and took me a bit of repeated listening at times, but worth it to get the full impact of the plot and the resulting climactic ending. Thoroughly enjoyed it!

Good Story, Ok Narration

Good Christie story. The narrator's renditions of voices for the women characters were a bit annoying.

It's Agatha Cristie!!

Okay ...

1) I love mysteries stories (+1) and Agatha Christie writes some of the best classic in the genre (+1) where all the characters are interesting and intelligent (+1)

2) The performance is one of the best I have encountered (+1) ... making this book a 7 out of 5

Over the course of 8+ hrs you are treated to an evolving mystery that will keep you fully engaged and constantly guessing about what is really going on all the way to the end with an mysterious crime boss vs scotland yard and a dashing hero that nobody really knows ... it's a fun ride!

I was given this free advance listener copy (ALC) audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
