    " Agatha Christie's mysteries have been a delight to me from the time that I first began reading adult books. And The guy who plays Poirot on PBS (David Souchet?) reads this so well. "

    " A classic Agatha Christie's book. But one of the best. Deserves a 6, but a 5 is the maximum rating. I'm afraid that is the only thing I can tell without spoilers. "

    " Ah, stavolta la Christie ha fatto cilecca! La storia è un po' troppo campata in aria, tanto sarebbe valso se Poirot se la fosse inventata di sana pianta, la soluzione. "

    " This book is pretty great. I love the new resolution. I can't believe that the mistress is actually the first wife of Sir George! It's so unheard of, yet so brilliant, so great, so unique and weird. READ, REREAD, and enjoy. I will do so also. "

    " Bylo to paradni cteni - až do pointy. Tady Poirot nepusobi jako genialni detektiv, ale spis jako fabulator, ktery si pachatele "vykouzli" ve vlastni hlave. Dilky do sebe zapadaly hodne chtene a umele. Konec zkratka nedela zajimavemu napadu s hrou na vrazdu prilis dobre jmeno. "
