Clear rating

This is an excellent collection of all of Agatha Christie's short stories featuring her most famous character the Belgian (not French!) private detective Hercule Poirot. In about 2006 I started a challenge to read all of the books written by Agatha Christie. I just finished it in Sept of 2010 and found it very fascinating to discover the depth and breath of her writing. Incidentally, this is also a former library book that I had to pay for after dropping it into the bath tub, but it was worth every penny.

"One must not so replenish the stomach that the brain refuses to function." - Hercule Poirot, The Market Basing Mystery

"In the little grey cells of the brain lies the solution of every mystery" -HP, The King of Clubs

The stories in this book were not arranged chronologically. For example, the last story, The Double Clue, takes place a good twenty years before The Capture of Cerberus which occurs in the middle of the book.
