Top 10 Best Poirot Audio Books to Listen To

There are plenty of Poirot audiobooks to chose between whether you want to listen to a fully unabridged version or enjoy a dramatised version. Both David Suchet – famous for playing Poirot – an Hugh Fraser who played Arthur Hastings along side him – have narrated many of the Poirot novels. 

BBC Radio have produced every Poirot novel in dramatised version too – John Moffat stars as Poirot and these are a great way to enjoy a Poirot novel usually within about two hours. 

Whether you prefer audioboks because you find reading difficult due to eyesight or dyslexia or simply want to multi-task…audiobooks are a fantastic way to ensure you never miss out on an Agatha Christie story. You can enjoy them whether commuting on the train, driving in the car or simply doing chores around the house, or like me, as a great way to unwind with your eyes closed before dozing off at the end of the day.
