Not my favorite, but I really like it. Christie kind of went off into left field to bring out the criminal. However, she kept me on my toes.

Another great Hercule Poirot mystery by the queen of mysteries. In my opinion the book is much better than the movie, which didn’t convey the story as well as Mrs. Christie wrote it. It was a very well written book with an intricate plot, difficult to unwind—as are all her books. You will notice Poirot had a much more foreign dialogue than her later books, which, I think, confers him more charm and appeal. I found it interesting that divorce is mentioned as the only possible alternative to one of the characters: in 1928 Mrs. Christie’s husband asked her for a divorce… Highly recommend this book for Agatha Christie’s fans.

Hecule Poirot is not my favorite Dame Christy character. Some of his stories are better than others. Maybe I have read too many of her books because I figured out "who did it" very early on. To me the best part of this story was the time period in which it took place!
