Meet the Author

The name "Agatha Christie" is nearly synonymous with upper-class British mysteries, for good reason. Christie (1890-1976) set the standard for the genre in more than 60 novels and dozens of short stories, creating two iconic detectives along the way: the fastidious Belgian Hercule Poirot, and the English spinster Jane Marple in the Miss Marple series. No one could match her knack for weaving clues into her stories. Widely considered her masterpiece, And Then There Were None has been adapted into a number of films.

A complex plot that will keep you on your toes. As another reviewer stated, the plot is a bit hard to follow. Lots of twists and turns. Love the fact that Hasting has returned. Contains several French phrases so keep your French to English translation app handy. Well edited.

A wonderful Hercule Poirot adventure! As usual Agatha Christie gives us another great adventure. The character development of the "Big Four" draws you deeper into the storyline as you read. I especially enjoyed the unmasking of "Number Four". Thoroughly enjoyable, and recommended!

I have read all of Agatha Christie's books multiple times. To me, Agatha Christie was the quintessential mystery writer. This collection of short stories is different from many others because the stories are connected by the four villians. The stories are well done, like all of her stories. Love her descriptions and intricate mysteries. No matter how many times I read these, I am intrigued from beginning to end.

The plot was very dramatic and far-fetched, but it was AWESOME to read if you like melodramatic kind of spy-like things... Great sacrifices (well, one amazingly humungous and intensely mind-blowing one is what I can remember) shall be made, and murders shall be committed. It's basically Mister Hastings' vision of the most interesting murder ever, which is...well, interesting! I reccomend it very much!

It's not Agatha Christie's best. Too many words, not enough action. Also, for her, the unseen-hand plays too large a role in the twists and turns of the puzzle. However, Hastings is in fine form while narrating the exploits of his beloved friend Hercule Poirot.

This was the first book I ever read from Agatha Christie, and I,m really glad I read it. To me the plot was outstanding and so intriguing. I feel like people are comparing this to Agatha's other writings when it should be in its own Category even compared to other books I've read....this book sticks out in a great way.
