Read the book and at the end of it you will learn what i mean by being 'unconvenitonal'. But for that the reader must have read her other books too. One more thing i liked about the book was it doesnt have the suspects held up in the flight for hours as was the case in Murder on the orient express. Here they have been allowed to roam freely by the great writer. A very very deceptive ending but satisfying nevertheless. An unusual finale but a relieving one.

This mystery is one of my favorites. It is the only Poirot novel that I have finished in one day. I just had to know what was going on. Contrary to what a previous reviewer said, you have no idea who the culprit is until the end. Very very good and interesting. It doesn't really matter who the culprit is. The motive and how death was acheived was must more exciting and thrilling!

I admit that I am a little picky about books. I am a little embarrased to say this, but I like to have romance in a novel. But, this book was so worth reading! I really liked the part when the guy said 'Steady my boy' to himself when he saw the pretty girl!

I loved this book! The ending(for me at least)was very good even though I knew who the culprit was because of one thing they said. I also liked that there was a little romance even though I didn't like one of the people in the romance! i think this book was the best Agatha Cristie yet!
