Christie sucked all the suspense out of this novel by creating a protagonist who is unflappable. He is so cool that no matter how much mystery surrounds him, he is able to come up with a witty one-liner to kill the mood. I love Christie but I need some emotion besides this kid being a smart ass to hold my interest.
A surprise ending to a mystery not involing Miss Marple or Poirot. Interesting reading thruout.
The first Hercule Poiroit story.
One of my favorite Christies (and I've read them all), as it combines the usual masterful intrigue with humor and romance- a perfect combination!
I decided to reread Agatha Christie mysteries. I was not disappointed. It has been a while so I didn't remember the characters and the ending. There were a lot of characters, but I didn't have trouble keeping track of them. She always makes her characters come alive. The mystery was complicated and a really great 'surprise' ending. Recommend.
A very enjoyable Christie book.
Another great tale from the grande dame of mystery...
