Publisher's Summary

Soon to be a major motion picture sequel to Murder on the Orient Express with a screenplay by Michael Green, directed by and starring Kenneth Branagh alongside Gal Gadot - coming February 11, 2022!

Beloved detective Hercule Poirot embarks on a journey to Egypt in one of Agatha Christie’s most famous mysteries.

The tranquility of a luxury cruise along the Nile was shattered by the discovery that Linnet Ridgeway had been shot through the head. She was young, stylish, and beautiful. A girl who had everything...until she lost her life.

Hercule Poirot recalled an earlier outburst by a fellow passenger: “I’d like to put my dear little pistol against her head and just press the trigger.” Yet under the searing heat of the Egyptian sun, nothing is ever quite what it seems.

A sweeping mystery of love, jealousy, and betrayal, Death on the Nile is one of Christie’s most legendary and timeless works.

Death on the Nile is perfect.” (The Guardian)

“One of her best.... First rate entertainment.” (Kirkus Reviews)

A great listen!

Kenneth Branagh is simply superb. With his voice, each character is made unique and brought to life. There is no need to watch the story on the screen with this kind of performance. Just to listen is rather enough.

Bow down to Kenneth Branagh

Death on the Nile was an absolute delight to hear over audio. Kenneth Branagh uses an assortment of different voices and accents to make the massive amount of characters come to life and feel individual. His voice is even able to animate the social class of certain characters and the moments of pause and dialogue were to perfection. Christie is known for her large use of dialogue and Branagh does her justice. You won't be disappointed with this audiobook, characters and plot that is Death on the Nile

Excellent!

Kenneth Branagh was really good at narrating this. I enjoyed him in the newest film adaptation of Murder on the Orient Express, so I can't wait to see this novel in theatres.

Bravo Mr. Branagh!!!!!

I loved every second of this audiobook experience. All I can say is, if you love Poirot, and you don’t yet own a version of this book, stop shopping right now and buy this audiobook. If you already have the David Suchet version (which is also very good btw), but you love Death on the Nile, do yourself a favor and buy this audiobook. This is my favorite Agatha Christie book, and I already own the fore mentioned version, but ever since I heard Kenneth Branagh read Murder on the Orient Express, I’ve been counting the days for my monthly credits. Now I’m hoping that he reads Evil Under the Sun next.

Not one of Dame Agathas best

Surprisingly, I prefer the movie version of this story ( 1978 ). Perhaps because of the lovely scenery and set design. This is a typical Hercule Poirot mystery, everyone is a suspect. Kenneth Branagh does a great job narrating.

Fantastic story, wonderful narrator

The narrator did a wonderful job and the story was full of twists and turns and ups and downs. A wonderful mystery for those who enjoyed Murder on the Orient Express.

From start to finish so this book held me spellbound. Kenneth Branagh shines as the narrator and could not be outdone. I could not recommend this book enough.

Guessed the Who, Missed the How

And even then, I was only half-right about the Who. As usual, Christie gives us everything we need for a solution. Everything except an adequate supply of the little grey cells (an expression which, oddly enough, Poirot doesn’t use in this story).

And Kenneth Branagh gives us a superb performance, adding touches that aren’t in the script—nervous laughter, slight, incredulous guffaws—that help an author who was always a better storyteller than a writer. Though some reviewers had a hard time keeping track of characters, I thought Branagh did an especially fine job at that.

Genius story telling

Thank you Kenneth Branagh. Your expert talent made the characters’ personalities enrich the well-known and favorite story. Happy to hear you ate branching out to more story narration.

Not my kind of book

Between the accents and all the people I can’t follow. I listen for entertainment. It’s a job listening to this book.

Wonderful Narrator

This was performed wonderfully, for not one moment did I get the characters mixed up or confused! The story was concluded nicely, will definitely be rereading/listening again. Highly recommend.
