    " I did not see the ending coming! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 2/9/2014

    " Classic Agatha Christie, with small towns and manor houses and red herrings galore. I know the first time I read it I was completely surprised by the denouement, though this time I remembered whodunit so it was less compelling. Still fine for something light to listen to in the car! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marijo Kist | 2/7/2014

    " I read 100% of the Agatha Christie books before I was in 7th grade. This one of my favorite of the later ( post WWII ) Poirot titles. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nick Duretta | 2/3/2014

    " It's Christie, so it's very good, but at this point in her career she was almost parodying herself. This is the quintessential Christie set-up: rich patriarch dies and leaves his estate to his brood of generally undeserving children. Was he murdered? If so, who did it? There are plenty of red herrings, of course, but I actually figured this one out, so it isn't too tough. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tasnima | 2/2/2014

    " Lovely mystery, of course! However, I was not satisfied with the killer, her motive, or one of the important clues. Poirot was delicious as always. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yvonne | 2/2/2014

    " My favorite kind of mystery. I was wrong footed all the way through! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tanis | 1/31/2014

    " Every time I read an Agatha Christie mystery, I remember how much I enjoy her books! This was definitely a book I had a very hard time putting down. One of the things I like about her books is that while they are murder mysteries, she does not dwell on the murder itself. No blood and gore. It's all about solving the case. Hercule Poirot is one of my favorite detectives, and arguably the greatest fictional detective of all time. All of the characters are so well-developed in this book. You get a tantalizing taste of each character's psyche... just enough to wonder, did he/she do it? Is he/she the murderer? The ending was completely surprising. I love that. The whole time I was guessing and guessing and I was way off the mark the whole time. I definitely recommend this to anyone who likes a good mystery! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sareene | 1/21/2014

    " Meh. She's done better. The one aspect I did enjoy is the emphasis on nostalgia and, of course, the country house. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Magdalena | 1/17/2014

    " I LOVED this book! :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lorna | 1/16/2014

    " good but difficult to remember who is who as they are so many characters. Sometimes if you have seen the TV episode you can remember who did it. If I didn't know would have been hard to guess! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Billie Cotterman | 12/31/2013

    " I enjoyed both the book and later the audiobook, read by Hugh Fraser. I must admit that the first time I read this, I was not impressed. The second time, though, I listened to it and I was able to pick up on some things that I did not the first time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Britney | 12/28/2013

    " I always love a good Agatha Christie book. Poirot actually wasn't as prominent a character in this book compared to the other Christie books I've read, which made me a little sad. Regardless, a solid mystery that kept me engrossed throughout. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Seema Vishnu | 12/18/2013

    " soooo many twists in the plot... simply adore Agatha's writing and imagination "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Achilles | 11/26/2013

    " This was a fun read. I cannot say that it was an incredibly intellectually stimulating novel. But I did enjoy myself. If you're looking for a little lighthearted crime, definitely pick this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christopher Colegrove | 11/23/2013

    " It's all about the paintings! (Clue) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Raina | 11/16/2013

    " Just a bit alright for me, Dame Christie. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ed | 3/22/2013

    " At the reading of a will, an estranged family member assumes murder and is murdered herself. Poirot takes the case. Interesting characters and interesting clues. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda K K | 11/20/2012

    " 2nd reading for this one. Christie is always superb in my book. "

    " Her zamanki gibi harikaydi:) "

    " I love Agatha Christie. 3.5 stars "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsey | 10/27/2011

    " I know i read this, i just don't remember what it was about. But i never met an Agatha Christie mystery I didn't love! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eleni | 7/27/2011

    " this was one of my favourites! Really clever.... I even had three of the clues but I couldn't put it together.... one of the characters at the end of the book will tell you why I failed to do so.... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patrick\ | 7/22/2011

    " A bit down in quality. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paul Hollis | 6/28/2011

    " aka "Funerals are Fatal" "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniel | 6/25/2011

    " Did not solve this one before the end. In retrospect, there were clues, and I picked up on some of them, but had no idea what they meant. Curse you, Christie, I'll get you next time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hadyan | 5/20/2011

    " So thriller, altough i'm sure Poirot will solve the case "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen | 5/10/2011

    " Not my favorite Agatha Christie story but not too bad. I did figure out whodunit and a few other related details. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lyndsay | 4/19/2011

    " The family all become suspects after the seemingly natural death Richard Abernethie's funeral when his sister says he was murdered. The next day she is murdered.

    Poirot discovers the truth in the miraculous. No he didn't sort of way "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Zach | 1/12/2011

    " This one definitely had a surprise ending. I particularly liked the atmosphere as well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robin | 1/6/2011

    " Very good, though if you've read a lot of Christie, you'll notice a few of her favorite 'tricks'.

    I only gave it 3 stars as it seemed a trifle padded. You don't get the final and most important clue until very near the end, and then from there it's just a wrap-up. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 4cats | 12/15/2010

    " Another decent, Poirot novel. Well worth a go . "
