The Year of Agatha
Fairly mild, romance-focused short stories - a good easy read!

1.5 stars - rounded up.

Well, it's Christie, but unfortunately not at her best. I was looking forward to intricate plots and an abundance of red herrings but this collection of short stories just didn't come up with any memorable stories or twists.

Eventhough all 12 stories in this book did not staged by Poirot, Miss Marple or even Tommy & Tuppence, the stories were still antonishing and good.
I like the twist and turn in every stories and how simple the crime were actually committed in it.
My favorite would be The Listerdale Mystery, Philomel Cottage and The Rajah's Emerald.

A nice collection of short mysteries, each with a twist. Most are adventure stories rather than traditional sleuthing, which tend to be my favourite Agatha Christie stories (think along the lines of Why Didn't They Ask Evans? or The Secret Adversary).

I was surprise by the romantic aspect of this one, but not so much by the case. Still an ok read.
