This is the first Agatha Christie mystery I've read, and sadly I am underwhelmed. The characters talked too much, much too much, and repeated what happened chattily too many times--almost as if the author was trying to keep track of things herself. The mystery was thin, the revelation of new clues often preposterous. I am dismayed I didn't love this book and then want to devour others by Ms. Christie. Sadly, that will not be.

** Two stars, barely.
