I liked all Poirot books.. The Murder of Roger Ackroyd... I wrote a paper on it once.. :)(though its ending and the "unreliable narrator" didnt surprise me much), also Murder on the Orient Express... I have read only one of Miss.Marple book.. The Moving Finger... didnt find it much interesting.

The first time I read "Murder on the Orient Express," I was delighted to be deceived by the ending (though the second and third times I made my way through it, the solution seemed painfully obvious). Which is why I have stopped rereading mysteries.

well, i'm a big fan of poirot and come on, "curtain" is a really great book, i never thought that poirot would kill someone, it was a shok, and seriously, the way how the murdere wsa killing people was genious
why didn't u like it?

And Then There Were None is her best book.

I read most of them when I was a kid, then later I went back and re-read them. I hate to say it, but as time goes on I like her less and less. She couldn't create a lifelike character to save her life, and even the plots are not all that baffling once you begin to recognize her two or three favorite tricks...

I agree! Ten Little Indians was the first Christie book I read, and it is still my favorite after reading so many of the others!!! I also loved Black Coffee.

Evil under the sun
The Hollow - I performed in that on stage. I played Edward Angatell.
Death on the Nile
The Sittaford Mystery - First one I read so it holds a special place in my heart


I prefer Poirot books to Marple. And I find Tommy and Tuppence a bit annoying.

As to Re-reading them I find almost as much fun in spotting where the clues and red herrings are.

PLEASE DO NOT GIVE ENDINGS AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :flare:
