批評家のレビュー

"The acknowledged queen of detective fiction." ( Observer)
"The Empress of the crime novel." ( Sunday Express)

あらすじ・解説

When the luxurious Blue Train arrives at Nice, a guard attempts to wake serene Ruth Kettering from her slumbers. But she will never wake again, for a heavy blow has killed her, disfiguring her features almost beyond recognition. What is more, her precious rubies are missing.
©1928 Agatha Christie (P)2003 HarperCollins Publishers Ltd, London UK

A Hercule Poirot mystery with almost no Poirot

The story was not so much a mystery but what appeared to be an incoherent story. Fans of the other books may want to give this one a miss.

Hugh Fraser does it again

Would you listen to The Mystery of the Blue Train again? Why?

The Mystery of the Blue Train is one of my favourite Christie novels, and I think Hugh Fraser did a wonderful job mimicking David Suchet's Poirot voice, as well as making the women sound normal instead of overly feminine.

What other book might you compare The Mystery of the Blue Train to and why?

And Then There Were None, narrated by the same actor, but with no Poirot, so no fallback character. A wonderfully creepy rendition of Justice Wargrave.

What about Hugh Fraser’s performance did you like?

Wonderfully varied in voice, with each character distinct by sound alone, and his natural voice is perfect for narrating.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Katherine tells Poirot she can't go on, Hugh Fraser captures the distress in her voice in a perfect, yet understated, manner.

Any additional comments?

Would recommend to anyone and everyone - thoroughly enjoyable!

The Blue Train twists and turns

I love to hear Hugh Fraser's telling any of the Poirot stories. He has Poirot's voice just right and he is excellent at the range, accents and tone of all the other characters especially women where he manages never to sound shrill but remains sympathetic and believable as a woman's voice.
The story of Blue Train twists and turns, it is quite dark at times and the denouement is unexpected, Agatha Christie at her best.

An excellent story

I honestly did enjoy this book although I dont think it was as good as some of agatha Christie's other works. I really enjoy the first person narration that she usually writes in and the third person approach in this was less pleasing. would recommend this book if you want to read the full reportoire however, if you are a casual, one off reader, I would recommend starting with something else. All the Miss Marple books are super and the first 3 poirot books are ingenious. I really enjoyed the strong female character if katherine in this and there were many comedic aspects, however, I spent the first hour and a half feeling thoroughly bewildered. I hope that the next poirot book returns to Christie's usual impeccable quality as I have found this and the big 4 rather disappointing compared to what I have come to expect. still a good listen though

Another excellent listen

Love Hugh Fraser as a narrator, and this is another fab listen, excellent story and characters - although I did guess who did it.

Sadly DNF :(

I love Agatha Christie and her read most of her books, watched all the televised episodes of both Poirot and Marple, films with Margaret Rutherford etc but I've never read etc the Blue Train. Sadly I got about 15 chapters in and gave up as I just found it slow moving and the characters didn't engage me. So I've returned it and got the BBC dramatisation in which I enjoyed more. Even the narration by Hugh Fraser didn't save it for me.

Very enjoyable.

Great story without being ridiculously convoluted. Hugh Fraser does a superb job narrating and of character dialogue.

Good story but didn’t love the narrator

The storey was really good. Not my favourite Agatha Cheshire book but still good. However it was hard to differentiate between the male and female voices that the narrator used. Some of the females did sound female but occasionally there was one that sounded male and it was quite confusing when trying to keep track of which character that was. Besides that, I have no complaints.

Great Performance But Only OK Story

This was an unusual story. I love Agatha Christie but this is probably the weakest story I have read of hers. It was quite disjointed and jumped around. It was a Poirot story but for the first hour plus he wasn't even in it, I thought I had got it wrong and chosen the wrong book. The performance, however, was first class, really good, and that helped a lot.
