Iračka metropola Bagdad odabrana je za lokaciju tajnog sastanka svjetskih velesila. Nažalost, vijest o susretu najmoćnijih ljudi svijeta se pročula i tajna organizacija s Bliskog istoka planira urotu čiji je cilj sabotirati pregovore.
U ovu eksplozivnu situaciju slučajno zaluta Victoria Jones, londonska „djevojka iz susjedstva“ koja čezne za avanturama. Nakon što je izgubil

Dari sejak SD, saya merasa tergelitik dengan pertanyaan, "Mana yang lebih hebat, Sherlock Holmes atau Hercule Poirot? Doyle atau Christie?".

Ok, kalo yang dibandingkan adalah segi kepopuleran dan pengaruh, maka Holmes sama sekali tak tertandingi. Menurut Guinness Book of Record, karakter Holmes adalah karakter yang paling banyak dimainkan dalam film dibandingkan tokoh apapun. Tercatat lebih dari 70 aktor berperan sebagai dia di lebih dari 200 film. Siapa pula yang tak mengenal cara mengambil kesi

Kalau mau kenalan awal sama Poirot, buku kumcer ini bisa jadi pilihan yang tepat. Walau di sini, dengan keberadaan Hasting (yang mengingatkan saya pada Watson) agak terasa kemiripan dengan Sherlock Holmes. Beberapa kasus dalam buku ini juga mengingatkan saya pada beberapa kasus Sherlock, seperti misalnya yang Rancangan Kapal Selam sama Pemerasan dengan Surat Lady siapa itu, tapi tentu saja dengan ending mengejutkan khas Agatha Christie.

Agatha renditi conto che nei racconti (perlomeno in questi) facevi abbastanza pena.
Ma questo non cambia nulla fra noi, ok?

مجموعة من القضايا المنوعة
استمتعت بقرائتها
حاولت كثيرا ان احزر القاتل في بعض هذه القضايا لكن لم انجح
لانه في بعض القضايا بواورو يكون اكتشف القاتل ولكن ضللنا في بعض التفاصيل

A really nice collection of short stories. Some stories are almost identical to other short stories (The submarine Plans = The Incredible Theft and The Market Basing Mystery = Murder in the Mews) and at least one - The Plymouth Express - is a short version of the Poirot full-length novel The Mystery of the Blue Train. But every story is enjoyable, with Poirot at his best.

I am a huge fan of Agatha Christie. Each story is unique yet familiar, the main characters are developed, idiosyncratic, flawed but appealing. I particularly like these short stories as all my mundane chores can be broken up with a cuppa and a tale. I really enjoy the escapism but feel that I am also being educated as the vocabulary is sublime. Looking forward to my next dose of Poirot already.

Eine sehr vielfältige Kurzgeschichtensammlung um Christies Meisterdetektiv Hercule Poirot. Die Geschichten sind meist aus der Sicht von Hastings erzählt, einige wenige jedoch auch durch Poirot selbst oder eine dritte Person.
Sie folgen dabei keiner Chronologie noch sind sie in eine größere Rahmenhandlung eingebunden, wie zB beim Dienstagsabend-Klub. Die Qualität der Fälle schwankt dabei schon etwas, aber im Großen und Ganzen fand ich alle sehr kurzweilig. Einige waren mir von der Auflösung her et

Cred că asta a fost o carte proastă cu care să încep să descopăr cărțile Agathei Christie sau cel puțin așa sper, că celelalte cărți sunt mult mai bune. Această carte are 18 povestiri scurte, care urmăresc aventurile lui Hercule Poirot și a prietenului său, Arthur Hastings, rezolvând primele mistere ale carierei detectivului cunoscut mondial. Gândurile mele încă de la primele cuvinte ale cărții și până la ultimele au fost că povestea e identică cu cea a lui Sherlock și Dr. Watson, din nefericire ...more

Este livro é uma compilação de alguns dos primeiros casos do muito conhecido detetive belga Poirot, quando este ainda não era muito famoso e apenas se dedicava a pequenos casos familiares, como o desaparecimento de uma cozinheira (no caso "A Aventura da cozinheira desaparecida"), ou uma suspeita de envenenamento por parte de uma peculiar cliente (em "O mistério da Cornualha"). Nesses tempos, no máximo, Poirot só se envolvia em casos de grande calibre que envolviam pessoas importantes a pedido do ...more

التقييم الحقيقي :.
على الرغم من صغر الرواية الا انني قسمتها على اسبوعين تقريبا لكي امتع نفسي كل يوم بقصة قصيرة منها، وادع نفسي طوال اليوم افكر بالقضية وكيف تم اكتشاف القاتل .. لم يكن يهمني من القاتل بل كنت اهتم بشدة الى طريقة اكتشاف الجريمة ، الى الخطأ البسيط الذي وقع فيه المجرم !
في بداية قرائتي لاحظت ان بوارو يشبه بشدة شيرلوك ، تضايقت وبشدة لان الشخصيات يجب ان لا تقلد!!

A great collection

In The Veiled Lady Poirot is a bit bored with the lack of interesting cases that comes his way when a mysterious lady rings his doorbell. This adventure transforms our hero into a burglar and delivers a reasonable, although a bit farfetched conclusion to an amusing mystery.

Nothing is what it seems in The Lost Mine, where Poirot gets involved in solving the mysterious dissapearance of the Chinese businessman Wu Ling. Itï¿s quite amusing when Poirot visits the opium den, but I ne

Me encantaron estas historias cortas de Poirot. Hay de muchos estilos, algunas más sorprendentes que otras, pero todas cuentan con la magistral habilidad del detective para ver en pequeños detalles las pistas para resolver los casos.

Destaco El caso del baile de la Victoria, Doble pista, La caja de bombones, Nido de avispas (donde Poirot evita un asesinato) y Problema en el mar.

Recommends it for: Christie and Poirot lovers
" Poirot had a good opinion of Japp's abilities, though deploring his lamentable lack of method, but I, for my part, considered that the detective's highest talent lay in the gentle art of seeking favours under the guise of conferring them ! "
---- musings of Captain Hastings in 'the affair at the victory ball'

Well that sums it up nicely, doesn't it ? With the neat little revelation that it is Captain Hastings actually who detests Japp more than Poirot, apparently.

And by the way, 'Poirot's ear

Amazing book. It was my first Agatha Christie so my cousin recommended a Poirot one. I feel in love with his way of solving mysteries in the first sorry and now I can't wait to get another of Poirot's books!

Este livro é um conjunto de pequenas histórias que relatam diferentes casos resolvidos por Poirtot. Embora não tenha dado grandes classificações a cada história individualmente, acho que é um bom livro para se ir lendo aos poucos e que entretém durante a leitura. Recomendo a todos os fãs de Agatha Christie.

I normally don't enjoy short stories, however, this book felt somehow different to all the others I read and I enjoyed most of the stories.

I think some of them would be even better if they were a bit longer, like The Adventure of Jonnhie Waverly and The Veiled Lady. Others were perfect the way they were and managed to keep me holding on and surprise me with the ending even with just a few pages, such as Problem at Sea.

Most of them I already knew from the David Suchet's movies, which are so good

A book to keep at the cabin or to read on vacation. You wont mind if your flight is delayed for twenty minutes because it will give you time enough to read another story. I was struck at how closely modeled these mysteries were on the Sherlock Holmes stories that appeared in the Strand - a fact Christie herself winks at throughout. Good fun with only a few politically incorrect statements to make the 21st century reader squirm a bit, and these are invariably spoken by the unlikable characters an ...more

I’m pretty sure that in my attempt to read every short story that Agatha Christie wrote I’m getting books that have the same stories. Between the authors own predilection for turning her short stories into novels and the wonderful TV shows I’m starting to lose track of just which stories I’ve read and which ones I haven’t. I’m pretty sure that I hadn’t read all of these yet but every one of them seemed familiar.

Agatha Christie's short stories are usually very easy to digest and the eighteen of them in this book is no exception. As hinted by in the review, this is early stories, and combined with being short stories mean that they lack in depth. On the other hand they are each interesting small and amusing puzzles so I don't miss the depth at all.

A nice book to have by the bed, for consumption one short story at a time.

Es imposible criticar a la magnifica Agatha Christie y aún menos al brillante Hercules Poirot, sus casos son brillantes y la lectura es amena y divertida.
Aun así hubo un par de investigaciones que me parecieron un poco irrisorias y un tanto aburridas.
Mis relatos favoritos fueron: El expreso de Plymouth, La caja de bombones y ¿Cómo crece tu jardín?

This collection of short stories are all-together amusing. But they lack the character development and the intricate unfolding of each case that I usually find in Christie's novels. But, still, if you're a fan of hers, it's a definite must-read.

OK, I did not read this one- I heard it. Audiobook, and I think that version did not include all the 18 stories. I'm gonna review it, anyway.
My favourite was the first one- the affair at the victory hall. The submarine plans I had already read in "Murder in the Mews", but it was a good story still. I skipped Plymouth Express because I had read somewhere it was expanded into a novel called "The Mystery of the Blue Train" and I mean to read that story one day, and I did not want any spoilers.

Pilihan yang tepat untuk orang-orang yang tidak menyukai cerita misteri yang terlalu rumit. Ada 18 kisah pendek yang menunjukkan bagaimana hebatnya sel-sel kelabu seorang Hercule Poirot. Tidak perlu usaha yang lebih dalam berpikir siapa pelaku dari kisah yang ada karena Poirot menyelesaikan kasus-kasusnya dengan cepat, berbeda dengan saat membaca kisah Poirot yang setebal sebuah buku seperti Crooked House, Murder in Mesopotamia, dan lain sebagainya.

"Ninho de Vespas": Neste conto descobrimos que Hercule Poirot não é só bom a desvendar crimes mas também a antecipá-los e a impedir que aconteçam. Muito bom.

"O Caso do Baile-Vitória": Um conto típico de Hercule Poirot onde as deduções estão sempre corretas e o crime é resolvido num abrir e fechar de olhos. E eu queria mais suspense.

"A aventura da cozinheira de Clapham": Mais um crime que não tem um grande mistério e nem a sua resolução nos traz grandes momentos.
