    1. Description: The recently married Alix Martin is obsessed with a recurring dream of her new husband’s murder. Each time she can see the murderer clearly, and it’s the mild-mannered man she had previously been engaged to, taking his revenge. But, what’s worse is that at the end of the dream she thanks the murderer. Perplexed, Alix tries to calm herself by spending time in the garden of her picturesque cottage. But her gardener confuses her further by wishing her well on her trip to London [...]

    2. Well, what the hell was that!? Was that a twist ending? Was it a cliff-hanger? Am I hallucinating? What did I just listen to? Oh, Agatha, why do you do this to me? I really don't know what to think. I definitely enjoyed listening to the story, which was read by Hugh Fraser, but that ending

    3. A quick intriguing read. One I hadn't read before, so that was cool. Very cool. These mini stories are perfect in between other books :)

    4. From BBC Radio 4 Extra:Alex meets Terry and is coaxed to start a business out in the country. Mike Walker's revamped whodunnit with Lizzie McInnerny.

    5. Philomel Cottage has been an interesting experience. Different from Agatha Christie's other works, but highly engaging. I loved it.

    6. The most boring thing she's ever written. read it in a "Collection of Halloween Stories" and it was a complete waste of my time.

    7. This was super familiar - I must have listened to an unabridged reading of this short story. The BBC radio adaptation changes (modernizes) some bits, and is slightly confusing as a result. Like what exactly are they doing at the cottage - some kind of startup? If she's the programmer then what is he? What exactly is the reason for their relationship?? But there's a through line that ties it to the original and that aspect is still strong and might make you shiver.

    8. A unusually story by Mrs Christie. This short novella in the The Listerdale Mystery Collection, has a elements of a supernatural. This is lost in the translation of the modern radio dramatization. Your left wondering

    9. Loved this short read, great spine-tingling fun! You’ll be asking yourself “what the” at the end! Enjoy on a chilly night, alone in the dark under a blanket. Though not overtly scary, it will make you wonder.question

    10. I'm ashamed to say that I have never read Agatha Christie before this story. The ultimate in the plot thickens. I'm intrigued enough to want to try more of her work.

    11. Unexpected ending considering it was feeling reminiscent of Endless Night. I'd recommend reading this short story!

    12. This short story kept me on my toes until the very end. I felt like the foreshadowing followed a natural speed and was obvious enough for any reader to pick up on. I made my friend read this story so I could discuss it with them because I couldn't find anyone online analyzing the ending. I re-read it and still was amused by the ambiguity.

    13. Short story previously published in The Listerdale Mystery and The Witness for the Prosecution and Other Stories.

    14. Chilly and perfect for the Halloween spirit. Not the best of Christie's work, but certainly worth it and the ending was so unexpected even though I discovered the plot almost halfway through but never saw that ending coming, I loved that!

    15. While the performance of this short story is very well done by the BBC, for purists, Agatha Christie stories cannot be given a 21st century makeover.

    16. I was really intrigued.cially at the end. Another great read by Agatha Christie. I listened to this on Audible, and loved every minute.
