I started listing to Brannaugh's narration of Christie's Death on the Nile. He is incredible. I really liked his Shakespeare movie adaptions back in the late 80's and early 90's, but didn't expect he his very expressive voice for narration. This is the difference that a world class actor can make. The book itself is interesting, but a product of it's time. If racial and sexual stereotypes bother you, this might not be the book for you. I suspect that jazz lovers would be even more offended by her description of a band playing jazz music.
