Read in September, 2009
Brittany and I picked out a few audiotapes for a road trip we took a couple of weeks ago, and this is the only one that I continued to listen to after the trip. The fact that it is a collection of short stories made it easier to listen to during my commute to and from work.
My biggest complaint about the book is that there isn't enough variety in the tales. There are 12 stories, and all have the same general theme. I'm not sure if I would feel the same way if I was reading it instead of listening to it, but I got tired of Mr. Quin by the time I got to the 9th or 10th story, and I felt like the mysteries became more and more predictable.
Christie also dabbles in the supernatural more in this book than in any of her others that I have read, and for me it made the story less enjoyable.
