By: Agatha Christie
“Ah, but my dear sir, the why must never be obvious. That is the whole point.”
🌟 It is no secret that I am a fan of Agatha! The idea of a lady writing mystery/ murder novels almost a decade ago and they are so smart and good is just mind-blowing! I was in the mood to read something by the queen of mystery in the second half of 2018 and I finally did this only days away from 2019.
🌟 I only picked this because I bought the book on sales and not for any particular reason!
This is by Poirot which may be the most unique detective ever!
“Rest assured,” said Hercule Poirot. “I am the best!”
🌟 As usual, the story is interesting, kind of hard to guess because Agatha likes to keep some clues hidden till the big reveal. I also like the format of Agatha’s books, the chapters are kind of short and makes sense.
🌟 I don’t have much to say about this one, I was fascinated by the reveal although it was a little bit over the top but at the end Poirot mentions that he doesn’t have a proof and that it is all just his dedications which saves the day!
🌟 Summary: While this is not Agatha’s best book, it was so enjoyable and easy to read. Poirot is as queer and funny as always! I think it is a good place to start for those who never read anything by Agatha and a good read for all of Poirot’s fans. I am giving it 4 out of 5 stars!
