I really enjoyed this. I was getting a little worried when no one had been killed at 200 pages. But I thought it had a very satisfying conclusion and I loved "watching" Hercule Poirot at work. My only beef with Agatha Christie is that I can never figure out whodunit until she reveals it at the end (after all, it is always very complicated -- much more of a puzzle than modern police-oriented mysteries). Are readers supposed to be able to figure it out? Or are they merely supposed to come to the ending, and say "aha, that makes sense! But I never would have thought of it!" Any thoughts?
