Agatha Christie: Miss Marple — The Complete Short Stories (audio)


24 Festive Tasks: Door 1 – Día de los Muertos, Book

Audio revisit courtesy of Joan Hickson (who reads almost all of the stories), as well as Isla Blair and Anna Massey (who read one story each). Original review of the print edition HERE.

The audio is excellent and contains an extra (and somewhat sinister) “non-Miss-Marple” story, The Dressmaker’s Doll — the story narrated by Anna Massey — which was first published in book form in Double Sin and Other Stories (U.S., 1961) and in Miss Marple’s Final Cases (UK, 1979); the story of a doll that mysteriously appears one day in a dressmaker’s shop and slowly seems to want to take it over.

J.R.R. Tolkien: The Lord of the Rings – Performed by Andy Serkis

In another online community, we recently talked about the new Andy Serkis Lord of the Rings recordings.  Well, it turns out that the pull of The Ring is still mighty strong, for however much it may have been destroyed in Mount Doom. I had barely gotten my hands on these audios and I found I […]
