This is a mystery crime book that had multiple suspects, maybe one or more murderers, and one victim. The lesson to learn from this story is that maybe the people you trust aren't that trustworthy or don't try to run away from your problems and face them. Christie has a natural story telling way of writing. The story is smooth and flows with greater excitement from time to time. For example: every time detective Poirot is questioning someone, somehow Christie makes it exciting to now what the other characters involvement in this crime were. This book was a fairly quick read and kept me interested throughout most its entirety, but at some parts it felt a bit repetitive. The majority of the book is Poirot solving the case, so there is not much action. The story consist of a murder mystery and the inspector of this murder, Hercule Poirot, keeps the reader intrigued by his clever and sharp discoveries. I most enjoyed trying to figure out the murderer along with Poirot and was surprised by the ending.
