One of the best Agatha Christie books: modern, innovative, people-focused and with a detective who feels like a real person This is one of the best Agatha Christie books I've read. Although it was published in 1944, it feels very modern. The pace is brisk. The paths of multiple characters are foll...

This took awhile for me to get into as there were so many characters that I had a bit of a hard time keeping them straight in my head. Once I managed to finally get a handle on who everyone was, I enjoyed it a lot more. My favorite characters were Anthony, Virginia, Bundle, and Lord Caterham. Hugh...

Perhaps not a very satisfying mystery but an entertaining novel about strong, resourceful women. "The Cat Among The Pigeons" is a book with a sprawling plot and a mostly transparent plot that is rescued and made quite entertaining by a cast of, to use Christie's term, "most unusual" women. Alth...

So, on the plus side, despite serious RL interventions progress on my card is well under way, with four squares (including the centre / free / raven square) marked "called and read"; three of these in a row -- plus reading for the remaining two squares of that row also in progress -- and several mor...

My third or fourth Poirot mystery, and I'm truly enjoying them. This one was a fun puzzle with interesting characters, and I'm growing very fond of Poirot. I'd quibble that I don't think sufficient clues were given to the reader to figure out whodunnit, and the whole matchmaking thing was a little w...

What can I say about this book that hasn´t been said before innumerable times. This is an excellent mystery, the plot is cleverly crafted and it simply is one of Christie´s best. And yet it isn´t one of my favorite mysteries by Dame Agatha and I don´t know exactly the reason for my feeling so. One...

"Third Girl" was a strange and dispiriting journey for me.At the start of the book, I was pleasantly surprised at the contemporary (1960's) feel of the novel. There was much more humour in it than I'd expected but there was also more violence and a deeper sense of threat than in other Poirot novels ...

This is the third Agatha Christie novel I’ve read, and I’ve definitely passed the threshold from wary curiosity to fandom. The first two (And Then There Were None; Orient Express) were so famous that even a detective mystery averse reader like me knew of them, but I’d never heard of this one. It was...
