And so passes Hercule Poirot. So Sad. This was a lovely read and had all the suspense and surprises Agatha Christie is known for. I found the characters a particularly interesting mix of the many who have populated her books over the years.

Despite the sadness of this being the end of Poirot, the work is fine, fine vintage Christie that creates an interesting mystery tale, and deconstructs the genre. Poirot + the villain are the mystery writer and Hastings the mystery reader. Christie apparently came to really dislike Poirot but was always fair to her readers in writing Christie did not like Poirot, thought he was "an egotistical little creep" and she lets it all out in Poirot's final, rather nasty, missive to Hastings.

Great ending to the Poirot series. Definatey another Christie gem. Really deep and mind boggling. Quick read.

A fantastic read, and a fantastic ending for M. Poirot in his last and most stunning case. Dame Christie really did save the best for last, and this one is a shocker.
