This Hercule Poirot novel was different from the other ones I've read - there are multiple murders, the victims don't know one another, etc. I was originally happy with a slightly different premise. Unfortunately, though, it made the book much more transparent than her other works. I guessed at part of the solution before I even read the book (view spoiler) and I figured out the murderer part way through the book.

It was an enjoyable enough read, but I pick up Christie wanting to be fooled and led about. If you're only going to read one or two Christie books, this isn't the one to go for - And Then There Were None and Murder on the Orient Express are both much superior.
