Product Description

About the Author

Agatha Christie is the most widely published author of all time, outsold only by the Bible and Shakespeare. Her books have sold more than a billion copies in English and another billion in a hundred foreign languages. She died in 1976.

From AudioFile

Listeners are in the hands of a pro with reader Robin Bailey, who effortlessly draws them into the Christie's fictional microcosm. Dame Agatha has the uncanny knack of creating a perfectly rendered and self-contained little world with exquisite details, from the color of an office girl's shoes to the art on a suspect's walls. To be so completely transported is a rare thing and is brought off beautifully by Bailey, who, like so many British actors, is a consummate professional, able to endow characters with their own quirks and nuances. When a dead man turns up on the floor of a blind woman's apartment surrounded by clocks all set to read 4:13, Special Branch Investigator Colin Lamb consults his old friend Hercule Poirot to unravel this clever puzzle. The intricate works of an Agatha Christie story are an immense pleasure, especially when delivered in so satisfying a narration.

Format: Bonded Leather
The first time I read this novel, I had to reread it again. Why? So many questions still linger at the end of the story even though the pages has ended. I wondered and reread and after the third reading, I finally got it all.
The Clocks is a story that has two main plots, and the one has absolutely nothing to do with the other. But they were connected in a way when a young typist finds a dead body in a livingroom of a blind woman. From there it's red herring all the way. But bits of real clues emerge when Mr Lamb (a fake name) talks to a girl with a broken leg.
Poirot only comes in now and then but became more interested when another murder occurs, while Lamb becomes Poirot's legs, ears and eyes. Oh yes, there are clues aplenty, but a broken high heel has never been this important as a clue.
Christie delivers this story with delightful take that neither too wordy nor too lengthy. This is another often neglected classic Christie, so get it.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
A stenographer stumbles onto an unlikely murder scene and Poroit is called upon to investigate--but not, I'm afraid, with greatly entertaining results. Although an "easy read," THE CLOCKS is a weak novel, over-plotted, slightly confusing, flat in tone, and it has a rather uninspired (and to a certain degree rather obvious) solution. The undemanding may enjoy it, but it does not rank among Christie's finest. A mediocre effort at best.

I was intrigued by this mystery for two reasons: Hercule Poirot and the idea of the clocks. Unfortunately, Poirot appears only briefly and is not particularly well portrayed. The investigation itself is overly complicated has to do with everything but the clocks, and I was not particularly fond of the reader. Overall, this would likely be a dissapointing read for anyone looking to sink their teeth into a Poirot mystery.

The story is good! I read this book in one day actually. I saw 2 problems: one is that sometimes I got confused with the characters, trying to remember who they are when they're mentioned in the end of the book, and the other problem is the ending, I think there are some details missing about how it all happened. She throws a lot of information in a few pages, but doesn't really tell how it all happened.

I have read most of Agatha's books and this one was rather disappointing. It had a really good plot and I was pleased with it but I felt that it wasn't as well written as the others. The character Colin, just seems washy. And the only decent character was poirot.
