My thoughts

I thought this book was done reasonably well.

It was a good mystery novel which wrapped everything up and revealed all well at the end as you would expect from a Poirot mystery.

I found that I didn’t get one with any of the characters other than Poirot and I think if it wasn’t for him then I probably wouldn’t have got through this book as I did.

Poirot is a good character and extreme likeable if not a little scatty at times.

I will give the next book a go and see how I get on with this to see if I will continue with more of Agatha Christie’s books.

-Happy Reading
