あらすじ・解説

Two best-selling Agatha Christie novels in one great audiobook

The Murder of Roger Ackroyd

Voted by the British Crime Writers’ Association as the "Best Crime Novel of All Time"

Hercule Poirot comes out of retirement in one of Agatha Christie’s 10 favorite novels, The Murder of Roger Ackroyd.

Roger Ackroyd knew too much. He knew that the woman he loved had poisoned her brutal first husband. He suspected also that someone had been blackmailing her. Then, tragically, came the news that she had taken her own life with an apparent drug overdose.

However the evening post brought Roger one last fatal scrap of information, but before he could finish reading the letter, he was stabbed to death. Luckily one of Roger’s friends and the newest resident to retire to this normally quiet village takes over - none other than Monsieur Hercule Poirot.

The Hollow

Agatha Christie’s classic The Hollow finds Poirot entangled in a nasty web of family secrets when he comes across a fresh murder at an English country manor.

A far-from-warm welcome greets Hercule Poirot as he arrives for lunch at Lucy Angkatell’s country house. A man lies dying by the swimming pool, his blood dripping into the water. His wife stands over him, holding a revolver.

As Poirot investigates, he begins to realize that beneath the respectable surface lies a tangle of family secrets, and everyone becomes a suspect.

Two great Christie books, excellent narrator

The Murder of Roger Ackroyd is one of Agatha Christie's best. The Hollow is good too, although I guessed the murderer pretty early on. As usual, Hugh Fraser provides excellent narration for both books.

A disappointment. If you have to buy The Hollow better a joint copy like this.

The Hollow is probably my least favorite Christie this far and I’m certainly glad I didn’t have to waste a credit on it. The Murder of Rodger Ackroyd was fantastic, but I’ve been reading the Poirot books in order so I left off The Hollow until now. I enjoyed the twist ending , but that was about it. I read before that Christie said she’d ruined this book by adding Poirot to it and while I agree she did a disservice to him here, his very small presence here was one of the few enjoyable parts.

This was a book meant to highlight social interaction with the Murder being an almost forgettable backdrop to showcase the relationships between these mostly forgettable characters. The problem is that Christie has done this before in Poirot books and much better at that. Mystery of the Blue Train. Three Act Tragedy. Death in the Clouds. These are all instances where Poirot was relegated to a smaller role and in which the side characters were allowed to shine. The side characters certainly didn’t shine here. They were boring at best, insufferable at worst, and for the most part, rinse and repeats of character molds from past books.

I said it before, but the Murder and the solving of it was given very little focus here. Extremely dissatisfying for a Murder mystery. That said, it managed to fool me as I had an entirely different theory as to who and how it was done. There was no reveal scene either. It just sort of ends in the last fifteen minutes without and real build up and fade out. This is the first time I’ve left a Christie novel feeling as though I’d been wronged.

Drags a little bit

Hercule Poirot is not a the main focus in this one and without him, it can drag.

Fabulously performed and written

Another two wonderful stories of who done it from Ms Christie. In each story she has a well played twist at the end. I love a story with something unexpected and she always delivers.
Hugh Fraser is a wonderful narrator and by far my favorite.
Definitely worth buying!
