I've long been a Sherlock Holmes fan, so I suppose it was only a matter of time before checked out another famoue detective. I come at it after having watched a handful of Poirot episodes starring David Suchet.

The book was interesting, and held my attention. I would have to say, though, that it was somewhat over-complicated. The plot reminded me quite a bit of that in Hercule Poirot's Christmas; I had just watched the Suchet version of that story. I must say that in the book, Poirot comes off as more of an inconsiderate ego-centric man than in the TV series, though of course he sometimes appears that way there too.

I'm sure I'll read more of the Poirot books in the future.
