4.0 The Mystery of the Blue Train
To be honest, this is probably more a 3.75 stars book. It was better than a 3.5, but not quite up to 4 star levels for me. That being said, I did enjoy this one. Poirot amused me greatly in this. Also, I thought I had it all figured out, only to discover I was only half right.

3.0 Not the best Poirot
Although this is an entertaining read, near the end so many characters have been introduced, that it is near to impossible to guess who the killer is. Furthermore Christie lets Poirot say something about the person who appears to be the killer, that makes his act very unlikely, which one would not e...
