Reading Journal Entry: The Under Dog, by Agatha Christie

I'm very much enjoying this Christie audiobooks. They're the perfect length - just long enough for a car ride - and the perfect kind of material for the format. Intellectually engaging, but not too much deep thinking required.

Suchet does another wonderful job on this Poirot mystery. Poirot is called in on a murder in a family house - where almost every member of the household is a possible suspect. I'm very impressed by Suchet's Poirot, and almost more impressed by the way he switches between the little Belgian and the other characters, who vary widely in gender and class. He's very smooth and really brings to life the understated humor of Christie's writing.
