really liked it

I enjoyed the mystery very much. I had about half of the mystery right, but I still had several fun surprises. I really like the new character Inspector Catchpool. He is a very interesting character and I have a lot of sympathy for him.

My only real criticism and that is just because of the way I read. I don't hear Poirot when I read his part of the story. It may not be fair because I was also reading some Poirot short stories between chapters but when I read it from Agatha Christie I get a different feel of the man. When I read Monogram Murders I heard the brains, wit and fussiness. But what I was missing especially with Catchpool was his sweetness. Poirot would get frustrated with and argue with Hastings but there was an underlining affection that you could hear in the way Agatha Christie wrote the character. The only time I heard that was at the beginning with Jennie and at the end with the Doctor.

Otherwise it was a really good book, I recommend it to fans of Poirot.
