あらすじ・解説

Mr. Shaitana is famous as a flamboyant party host. Nevertheless, he is a man of whom everybody is a little afraid. So when he boasts to Hercule Poirot that he considers murder an art form, the detective has some reservations about accepting a party invitation to view Shaitana's "private collection".

Indeed, what begins as an absorbing evening of bridge is to turn into a more dangerous game altogether.

this is a great Christie mystery

Some of Agatha Christie's mysteries are more about characters and some are more about mystery, and this is one of the latter. That's not to say that the characters are poor, only that the mystery itself takes center stage. It's a real whodunnit: A dinner party includes 4 criminals, whom the host claims to know have each gotten away with murder, and 4 sleuths, both professionals and amateurs......and while the 4 criminals are in a room playing bridge, one of them quietly and secretly murders the host. Whodunnit, and how will Poirot figure it out? Keep listening and find out.

Hugh Fraser does a terrific job, as I've enjoyed in the past.

Another great murder mystery

I will just say that I love the dialogue that Christie uses and the voice of Hugh Frasor is absolutely the best.

Amusing and entertaining

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Lots of fun for fans of Dame Agatha

What was one of the most memorable moments of Cards on the Table?

All the scenes with Ariana Oliver ( Agatha Christie making fun of her image)

Have you listened to any of Hugh Fraser’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Hugh Fraser is one reason to listen. He's fabulous !

Disappointed

Was Cards on the Table worth the listening time?

This book was as wonderful as any other of her tales. I love the way that Poirot referred to this type of murder in a previous book as his "ultimate crime to solve". I don't want to spoil the ending for anyone but it left me somewhat dizzy. The last 30-45 minutes seem to move the action really fast and the ending literally comes out of nowhere.

The only part I didn't care for was when other members of Scotland Yard went to interview people. You didn't know who these officers were and never heard anything about them later on either. It seemed random. I can understand the need to interview the people but why not send one of the characters we already knew? It was like they had a cameo appearance and in a book it just doesn't work the same as a movie.

I may have enjoyed it better if I played bridge. I didn't understand many of the hands that were played during the games. I would have gotten more out of the book if I did.

Poirot according to Hoyle

In my own mind, I kind of think of Agatha Christie mysteries as being sort of "A list" and "B list." To me, this book is on the "B list," but not because it is bad; only because it is not quite as wonderful as some others (I don't personally think there are any bad AC novels).

In this one, Poirot (along with Supt Battle, Col. Race and Ariadne Oliver--a mystery writer who one senses is created by Agatha in her own image) must solve an odd murder. Mr. Shaitana, a man who has boasted he can pick up on clues to people who have committed murder, invites the four sleuths, along with four other people, to play two tables of Bridge. Alas, the man who believed he could figure out who was a murderer quickly becomes the murder victim. And the hunt begins. Poirot cleverly uses the score sheets from the bridge game to ascertain who was playing the game at various times. But there are many more twists and turns till the murderer is revealed in the end.

I think High Fraser does a good job with the narration, and it is all the more fun since he played Captain Hastings in the Poirot TV series. This is a fun read. Agatha Christie is always a winner, and even though I read them all many years ago, I'm having a lot of fun listening to them again. Recommend!

great book!

this one was a little more confusing, since it seemed that the murderer had been revealed only to turn out to be someone else. loved it!

Implausible Plot, Fun Twists and Turns, Stellar Narration

Hugh Fraser does his usual excellent narration with the perfect Poirot, somehow completely believable women’s voices, and everyone else in this completely implausible yet fun mystery. My one regret is that there isn’t more Ariadne Oliver, the shambling apple-chomping mystery writer who makes her first appearance here. But a delightful use of an Audible credit — painted an entire room of my house while Poirot and amis kept me company.

My Favorite Story So Far!

Cards on the Table had a completely surprising ending. Very intriguing and unpredictable. Loved the narration as well.
