Death On The Nile by Agatha Christie

BBC Radio Dramatization
I've been a huge Agatha Christie fan for years now... Ever since my high school days when I read my very first Agatha Christie mystery novel for fun. I wish I could remember the first Agatha Christie novel I ever read, but alas I do not.

I do remember at some point reading Death On The Nile by Agatha Christie, but do not remember many details of this novel as it had been a long time since I'd read it. 

So, when I recently came the BBC Radio Dramatization of Death On The Nile by Agatha Christie through Audible, I decided to purchase it.  

Playing time for Death On The Nile by Agatha Christie is approximately 2 hours, 14 minutes. I was able to listen to it this afternoon.  

The following is the plot summary of Death On The Nile from Audible:
John Moffatt stars as the famous Belgian detective in this BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of one of Christie's most popular novels.
Linnet Ridgeway has led a charmed life. Blessed with beauty, enormous wealth, and a devoted husband, she has everything anyone could wish for. But as the happy couple set out on an idyllic honeymoon cruise on the Nile, storm clouds are gathering....
Linnet's former friend, Jacqueline de Bellefort, follows her and Simon wherever they go, and Linnet senses she is in danger. At first, her fears seem groundless. But an attempt is made first on her life and then on her husband's. Eventually, the killer is successful, and Linnet is found horribly murdered. With an obvious suspect who cannot possibly have committed the crime, it is up to Hercule Poirot to probe the depths of a remarkable criminal mind and discover the dark secret behind what is only the first in a series of inexplicable deaths.

I enjoyed listening to the BBC Radio Dramatization of Death On The Nile by Agatha Christie. I'm giving it a rating of 9 stars out of 10 stars.

 Until my next post, happy reading!!

    1. Thank you for nominating me for the versatile blogger award!

  2. I really need to continue this series. I've only read the first book, which I thought it was okay. However, I've heard that the rest of the series gets better. I also love dramatizations so I hope that the rest of the Hercule Poirot are available in this format.

    1. I'm looking forward to listening to more BBC dramatizations of Agatha Christie's novels. They're pretty good or at least I think so. :-)
