    How did I go for so long without reading an Agatha Christie?! I wish I'd picked one up sooner! I figured my first read should be the first book published (I have an OCDish need to read books in order) and I have to say that this is a fantastic debut novel. Most authors' work gets better with time - ...

    "Dear me, Poirot," I said with a sigh, "I think you have explained everything! And how wonderful of you to wait until page 230 to finally shed light on all your absurd behavior throughout the book, and to justify and the red herrings and narrative padding!

    Choose Your Own Adventure!You are Captain Arthur Hastings, and you are slowly falling in love with a Belgian. The feelings are embarrassing at first; you find the Belgian himself to be quite an embarrassment. But there is just something about him. Could it be his suave, continental sense of humor......

    I have a goal to read all of Poirot's stuff - order isn't terribly important for this type of 'series', but I don't want to touch his final act and book, Curtain, until I've read the others. Just an OCD reader thing.The mystery itself was baffling (closed room rocks), but I didn't care much until th...

    "Tajanstveni događaj u Stajlsu" je pisan prepoznatljivim stilom Agate Kristi, a značajan je iz najmanje dva razloga:ovo je roman prvenac Kraljice detektivskih romana i ujedno putem njega Agata nas upoznaje sa jednim od najpoznatijih književnih likova uopšte - reč je naravno o belgijsk...

    If you've read my reviews before, you know I love mystery fiction, and in particular, the classics. Agatha Christie died in 1976, and I was born the following year. Two things come to mind... (1) It's a good thing I wasn't alive when she died because I would have been so miserable to be around. (2) ...

    This is the first installment in the Hecule Poirot series and was just as brilliant as every other detective book I have read by the undoubted Queen of crime fiction!The novel is set in an English manor house, Styles, owned by the the Cavendish family. Hastings, our protagonist, is staying with the ...
