    " Whether new to the genre or a Christie fan, you will enjoy this collection. There is something symbolic in the Classical stories that resonate through the centuries. There is something in Christie's stories that is undeniably rooted in human nature. Paired, you end up with a journey that takes you through several countries, and are presented with many different kinds of riddles. Poirot undertakes to do his own 12 labors. Thoroughly enjoyable. "
