批評家のレビュー

"The construction is flawless." (Daily Mail)

"The main alibi is of the first brilliance...the descriptive work hits, as it were, the Nile on the head." (Observer)

あらすじ・解説

An all new digital audio edition of Death on the Nile narrated by Kenneth Branagh, director and star of 20th Century Studios’ upcoming Death on the Nile feature film.   

The tranquillity of a cruise along the Nile is shattered by the discovery that Linnet Ridgeway has been shot through the head. She was young, stylish and beautiful, a girl who had everything – until she lost her life. Hercule Poirot recalls an earlier outburst by a fellow passenger: ‘I’d like to put my dear little pistol against her head and just press the trigger.’ Yet in this exotic setting’ nothing is ever quite what it seems.... 

Kenneth Branagh reprises both his directorial role and that of the iconic detective in the upcoming film adaptation of Death on the Nile.  

Listen to the book now, and see the thrilling mystery come to life on the big screen soon!

Death on the Nile

Kenneth Branagh is brilliant. He is superb at the most subtle intonations . This was yet another narration that has helped me through a very difficult time.

Wonderful rendition

Kenneth Brannagh is wonderful to listen to, I hope he does more. He does a great impression of Poirot and you can tell the characters apart. Very good

One of the best audio books I’ve listened to

I wanted to read this book before the movie came out and saw that the actor who plays Poirot actually narrated this. And I must say, this is was the best audio book I’ve ever listened to! Brilliant performance, voice tone, the accents, the pace, all of it. It’s almost like watching a movie that lasts 8 or so hours, absolutely fabulous. I recommend immensely you listen to it, it is a fully immersive and fantastic experience. Bravo! Loved the Orient Express movie and absolutely cannot wait for this movie to come out. Thank you so so much Mr. Branagh, please read more Poirot books and, hopefully!, make more Poirot movies!

"Do not open your heart to evil."

Agatha Christie does write some deliciously contrived and convoluted plots, and this, like Murder on the Orient Express, is one of the best. However, she always seems rather two dimensional to this rrader, which is why viewing the stories as films is always so much more satisfuing. But best of all - a superb narration which still leaves the pictures to the reader's imagination whilst fleshing out the protagonists into fully developed characters by verbal nuances, expression and tonal variation. And Kenneth Branagh's performance supplies it all. Brilliantly sparkling (and strangely reminiscent of Noel Coward) . The best Poirot I have heard.

Excellent story & narrator

Excellent story, one of my favourite Agatha Christie, Hercule Poirot novels. Excellent narration by Kenneth Branagh, individual characterisation with different accents - all brilliant. I'd highly recommend it to anyone. Looking forward to the new film.

Great mystery. Not so great performance.

Loved the story. Kenneth has a wonderful voice but all the characters sounded similar so I got lost a lot at the beginning.

Just one problem

There has been some politically correct post-production editing done on this audiobook and this is my only problem as I do not believe that Christie herself would have approved of it and it interferes with the context of the everyday language which was used at the time in which it was written. While reading along with a copy of Death on the Nile I noticed that the word 'Negro' was substituted with the word 'African' at one point, but it was stated (by a voice which may not even have been Branagh's) so abruptly that it interrupted the flow and was obviously inserted into the recording at some stage after Branagh had already read the original sentence. This did not sit well with me but other than that (and maybe one or two more similar instances) this was a brilliant rendition of a terrific book and I thoroughly enjoyed the story - looking forward to seeing the new movie now.
