About Agatha Christie. The Agatha Christie Collection. The Affair at the Victory Ball. The Adventure of the Clapham Cook. In 1926, now averaging a book a year, Agatha Christie wrote her masterpiece. The Murder of Roger Ackroyd was the first of her books to be published by William Collins and marked the beginning of an author-publisher relationship that lasted for fifty years and produced over seventy books. The Murder of Roger Ackroyd was also the first of Agatha Christie’s works to be dramatised-as Alibi-and to have a successful run in London’s West End. The Mousetrap, her most famous play, opened in 1952 and runs to this day at St Martin’s Theatre in the West End; it is the longest-running play in history.

It was a fine morning in spring, and we were sitting in Poirot's rooms. My little friend, neat and dapper as ever, his egg-shaped head tilted slightly on one side, was delicately applying a new pomade to his moustache.

I have the audio book and it was great. I like the stories with their twists and clever solutions and I enjoyed one of the narrators. One was great, he used his voice to bring the characters to life and the other was just reading a book, he made no effort to differentiate the character, he just read what was on the page. The thing I liked about the stories is that they expanded how the reader saw Poirot's world by showing him interacting with "friends" which show him in a different light. I enjoyed this book and would recommend it for persons who just have a few minutes and want to read a story that presents a puzzle .
I had this audiobook in my shopping cart for months but was reluctant to buy it because I was not able to find the answer to my questions regarding the product. Recently however, I made up my mind and went ahead to buy it. Now, I have the answer to all my questions. There might be others out there who have the same questions, so I will address them.

1. The audiobook consists of 7 CDs housed in two folded black cardboard cases. The box is slim (about 1 inch width) which makes it convenient to carry around.
2. The cardboard cases inside have no design or writings. Very disappointing as I was used to seeing the Harry Potter sleeves with a lot of drawings.
3. The 18 stories are listed at the back of the cd box and are the same stories that appeared in the book. However, the order of play in the CDs does not coincide with the order in this list.
4. There is no list of the particular stories contained in each CD.
5. Upon listening to the entire collection, I found out that the order of the stories is different from the book.

So, these are the contents:

Disc 1
The Adventures of Johnny Waverly
The Double Sin
The Submarine Plans part 1

Disc 2
The Submarine Plans part 2
The Cornish Mystery
The Market Basing Mystery

Disc 3
Problem at Sea
How Does Your Garden Grow

Disc 4
The Lost Mine
The King of Clubs
The Affair of the Victory Ball part 1

Disc 5
The Affair of the Victory Ball part 2
The Wasp's Nest
The Chocolate Box
The Adventure of the Clapham Cook part 1

Disc 6
The Adventure of the Clapham Cook part 2
The Double Clue
The Third-Floor Flat

Disc 7
The Lemesurier Inheritance
The Veiled Lady
The Plymouth Express
It is wonderful to have these unabridged short stories on CD. This collection has two readers- sometimes the story is read by Hugh Fraser, sometimes by David Suchet. Suchet is definitely the better reader, as he uses more distinctive voices for each character, enabling the listener to follow the conversations a little better. However, all the stories are clearly presented, and each one is a delight- and better yet, most are solvable.

Another problem I had with this collection is that the stories are sometimes split between two CDs. This makes this particular collection harder to use in the car, when you have change CDs to hear the end of a story.
This is an audio recording of 18 short stories by Agatha Christie. The cast and narrator are excellent, the voices are distinguishable. The audio quality is good. With several stories in the collection, finding a particular story among the 7 CDs is a bit more of a challenge than I'd like to see. There is no index in the packaging or on the CDs. The CDs are packaged in cardboard folders in a cardboard box. So the indexing problem and the packaging are the reasons I dropped one star...otherwise these make a very nice collection.
These are a must-have for anyone who loves the genre, Agatha Christie, or Hercule Poirot. They're unabridged (complete), and are wonderfully read by David Suchet and Hugh Frasier, the leading duo from the well-known "Agatha Christie's Poirot" TV series aired from the mid-80's to 2013 when they closed out the last of the stories. Absolutely a treat for collector or mystery-lover.
Except for one brief audio garble on one disk, all seven disks have played quite nicely. The disk slips are in very good condition. The box is in fair-good condition. No complaints here. We especially enjoyed that the stories were readnarrated by David Suchet and Hugh Fraser of whom we are fans viv a vis portrayals of Poirot and Hastings. I don't think we could have expected any more from a pre-owned CD set than we received. Thanks.
I spend 4-7 hours driving at night when I am working. These stories made the time fly by. I could see the action in my head and although read by only one male voice per story it sounded like different people male and female.I have listened through all the discs twice and intend to listen to them many more times, even though I know "who done it".
This is an excellent collection of Agatha Christie short stories read by David Suchet and High Fraser... they are unabridged.... what can I say... Christie is brilliant and an incredible story teller... no matter how many times I read her ... after the passage of a few years I still cannot figure things out...this is fabulous for a long car ride... love it...
