The Unexpected Guest [Audio]
10 journalers for this copy...
Synopsis (from AudioFile):
This adaptation from the stage play by Christie biographer Charles Osborne gives Agatha Christie fans a new arena in which to hear her masterful mysteries. A traveler's car breaks down in the Scottish countryside, and, while seeking assistance, he stumbles upon a murder in a nearby home. And as is typical with Agatha Christie yarns, all is not as it seems. This audiobook is so faithful to Christie's writing style that fans may not even notice it's an adaptation.
'Like a Martini - crisp, dry, sophisticated, habit-forming - will satisfy all devotees of Christie neat plotting.' Booklist
Read by Hugh Fraser, best known for his portrayal of Captain Hastings in the TV series "Agatha Christie's Poirot" opposite David Suchet.

Audio BookRay Recommendations:
• make a journal entry when you receive the book so everyone knows it has safely arrived
• try to listen to it within a month
• ask the next on the list for his/her address
• make a journal entry when finished, telling us what you thought - did you like it? Did you think it was well-written?
• wrap it up well and pass it on to the next participant
Please PM me in case of any problems/unforeseen delay. If you are experiencing an RBC (Reading Backlog Crisis) or no longer wish to read the book, let me know and I will move/remove you down/off the list.
Hint: Ask for the address of the next on the list before you have finished reading; sometimes it takes a while before you get a reply. Some people don't get PM's. You may want to look for an e-mail address on their profile, or leave an ISO message on the forum. If the person doesn't respond within 7-10 days (use your judgement), please PM the next person, and then me, so I can update the bookring list.
**Cheapest postage rate is fine**

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:
Audiobook is on its way to babelfisk in Sweden. Thanks for sharing again.
Thanks for sharing!
Honestly, somebody point St. Jude (Patron Saint for Lost Causes) in my direction will you?
Huzzah! An AC audiobook I haven't listened too!
Perfect timing as I've just finished listening to Fannie Flagg reading a much abridged version of her novel 'Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe' and only just one side into a Hetty Wainthrop audiobook read by the inimitable Patricia Routledge - 'Missing Persons.
I'll try to start listening to this one over the weekend as I make my easter cards (Chich, please send me you addy again soonest!!).
Thanks for hosting Sarah, and thanks to Babelfisk for sending on and for the lovely postcard which is now gracing a space on my work wall :)
For further listener info, the listening times for each cd are: CD1 - 1hr 20 mins, CD2 - 1hr 4 mins, CD3 - 1hr 8 mins.
An excellent reading of this standalone AC mystery. I have re-read it in the last year or so, but I forgot who the murderer 'what done it' was until about halfway through the last cd, so my enjoyment wasn't impaired by thinking 'Oh, cut to the chase X did it - its obvious!!' :)
Thanks to Chich for hosting this ring - much appreciated ma'am :)
PMing Brunton11 for her addy and then this audiobook will be on the move again soonest.
Yes, a double whammy of AC - this time in the guise of 'A Pocketful of Rye' - is heading *your* way!
To be posted from Brampton Post Office.
Will pop it in the player and start listening to it soon.
And excellent narration by Hugh Fraser.
Thanks Smurphie to send it along with a beautiful postcard and 2 sketchpads.
I have started to listen to.
The CDs are prepared to send on, I am waiting for next reader's addy.
I will find out from chich where it should go next after I listen to it or if I should have it continue because it's a ray.
