's review

really liked it
bookshelves: mystery-thriller, 2011

When all the other little girls wanted to be princesses - do you know what I wanted to be? And no, it wasn't a vampire, either... it was...


The fact that I actually took the time to edit my face into that picture should tell you something about a) my Poirot love, and b) the kind of hopelessly boring day I have suffered through :D

Tatiana LOL. Poirot is my fave Christie sleuth too. Him and Hastings are one very dynamic duo.

I actually had a freaky obsession with him as a kid. Everyone else my age watched Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles but I spent my afternoons staring adoringly at David Suchet :) I need help...

Tatiana Suchet does Poirot the best. I've seen a lot of his show, so I get it:)

This may sound creepy, since I am a stranger, but I'm following your reviews. I liked this review because you photo shopped your face into it, and that made me laugh. Well, today I found your review on Game of Thrones and the last picture made me laugh really hard. I kept looking at it and finally figured out why your face looked so familiar!

Anyways, sorry for the stalker vibe you might be receiving. I just need a good laugh and a good review on books I might be interested in every once in a while. Sorry again! :)

Emily May Haha! I need to stop posting my face all over GR :D I'm glad you liked my pictures, though.

Alida Arabelle this is great....I liked ure pic...and yeah.i would like to be poirots sidekick tooooo....

Emily May Thank you :D

Jeri Massi Emily, I wish that you could get your wish. Papa Poirot would teach you the science of the little gray cells in no time. I promise, if anybody is ever murdered while we are playing cards at my house, or if I find a body at the foot of my stairs, I shall make tea and call you at once

Fab I understand you! I read Poirot's adventures instead of playing with dolls!

Ali Best book ever :)

Phillipa Fleur Haha love this! Orient express is amazing. Such a surprising and utterly genius solution at the end

Emily May Hehe, thanks :)

Julia I saw this one is #10 would you recommend they be read in order or does it not matter?

Hey Julia, I read this one a month ago and it doesn't make any references to past books so I think you should be fine. Enjoy :)

message 45: by India (new)

India Daram There is nothing like watching Poirot sleuthing on a cold winter's day while snuggling under a duvet or a warm summer day when the outside world beckons but Poirot's call is stronger!

Federica Maria I've just finished this book. Wow! I read the last 55 pages this morning and I'm shocked! I'd never expected the real identity (or, best, identities

Andrew Owoeye Funny review

GilliansCafe You look fine, but I have to wonder how Mrs. Japp is going to take it when she sees how her husband's likeness has been altered. Hmmmmm

Nabila Shaikh Love the picture! :D hahaha

message 50: by Luke (new)

Luke Hillman So, I flagged this review for spoilers because when I saw the big bold letters reading 'Mr Poirot's Sidekick', I thought you were revealing the killer of Mr. Ratchett....I really do apologize if it gets taken down.
