Thank you so much, Lucia, for your wonderful comment! I am glad you have found the film version amazing and entertaining, too.

I totally understand, Laysee - although I didn't use any spoilers, it is always nice to formulate your own thoughts and allow your own feelings while you are reading. :)

I agree 100%, Sumit. I read some of her work (what little I could find) after I went through my Nancy Drew stage when I was young. However, I don't remember much about them now - just like I don't remember much about Nancy Drew, either. Too many books between then and now. :) I do look forward to exploring more of Agatha Christie's work into the future, though. Thanks so much for your great comment! :)

Thank you so much, Tina! Ms Christie must have spent hours and hours mapping this one out . . . what a great mystery! :)

David R. Dowdy "Despite the large cast of characters and the various clues attached to certain people, I found it very easy to keep track of everyone, including the clues, motives, and where everyone was at the crucial times."

Very telling comment on one of Christie's greatest powers as a master of mystery. Her organization keeps the reader from getting lost and losing interest in complicated plots blanketed in simplicity.

Marilyn Great review, AC is always my go to author when I am struggling to get into a book. Never does she disappoint.


message 15: by Michael (new)

Michael I completely agree, Jaline! This is the book I go to when I want to remind myself how to make a plot work. It really is a flawless gem.

Ron Christie was amazing Jaline. Terrific review you wrote.

I am definitely going to take a page from *your* book . . . in the meaning of following your example. I only have 8 of Patricia Wentworth's "Miss Silver" novels remaining, so it will be great to have Ms Christie's "Hercule Poirot" novels to read in-between the weightier tomes. :) Thank you for your great comment, Marilyn!

Michael, when I read your novel The Garden of Blue Roses last summer, it was evident you had complete mastery of your plot and characters. I loved it - and if Ms Christie's work helped to inspire you, read on my friend. I look forward to your next one! 😊

Thanks so much, Jaline, for your kind words! If I was able to capture one tiny bit of Agatha Christie's mastery of plot, I'd feel humbled beyond belief.

Well, you are a humble soul anyway, Michael - and now you can add to it. 😊 The other aspect of Agatha Christie's writing that fascinates me is that she found a way to resolve the "too many clues" problem that even the great Sir Arthur Conan Doyle could not - and she still kept her mysteries fresh and fascinating. 👍

Thank you so much, Kaceey! 😊❤ I definitely hope so, too! I'm a bit worried because so many people have said this one is her very best, and I'm not ready for a slide downhill from here. 😂

Mary Beth *Traveling Sister* Fab review, Jaline! ❤


message 36: by Victoria (new)

Victoria Your reviews inspire me to dig up a few AGs and see which I missed after my own Nancy Drew phase. Or let's face it, I've probably forgotten the plots and they'll all be brand new. 🤣


message 37: by C. (new)

C. On my list. I will read reviews after I know the book. I am a sponge for detail, which is best tamped-down ahead of time. :)

Victoria, that is exactly how I feel! Although I have only read/re-read 4 of them so far, they all seem brand-new to me so far. I suspect I will get through the entire series and not recognize any of the plots! 😂

Thank you so much, Antoinette! It doesn't surprise me that you loved this one, too - there is much to love - and we have similar taste in most of our reads. :)


message 47: by C. (new)

C. It is fun to discover the number of non-Hercule Poirot novels Agatha wrote. I am following publication order and giving myself the surprise of which series each one belongs to. I believe this one is on tap, after "Witness For The Prosecution". I have her memoir of her time in Africa, her autobiography, and an art book about the person who painted her covers. There is lots to look forward to.


message 48: by Jaline (new)

Jaline What an exciting way to explore Agatha Christie's work, Carolyn! Your method would give an even more accurate perspective on her development as a writer. The subjects of the books you mentioned sound so very interesting! :)


message 49: by Kevin (new)

Kevin Ansbro How all good whodunnits should be, Jaline. Causing you to chop and change your mind and distract you from the twist ending. : )
Fabulous review!


message 50: by Andrew (new)

Andrew Smith Not a Christie novel I've read, Jaline, but one I probably need to catch up with. Thanks for bringing this one out into the light.
