Agatha Christie is the world's best-known mystery writer. Her books have sold over a billion copies in the English language, and another billion in 44 foreign languages. She is the most widely published author of all time in any language, outsold only by the Bible and Shakespeare. Her writing career spanned more than half a century, during which she wrote 79 novels and a short story collection, as well as 14 plays, one of which, The Mousetrap, is the longest running play in history. Two of the characters she created, the brilliant Belgian detective Hercule Poirot and the irrepressible and relentless Miss Marple, went on to become world famous detectives.

    disappointing-ebook missing some chapters

    I bought this book and finally finished reading it. I love Agatha Christie and have this book in paper form, so I knew that it was missing two short stories at the end. The book is a collection of short stories, so you don't really notice it, but they are missing. Tech support said the publishers didn't include them when converting into an ebook. If you want the full version of the book or are a fan of Agatha Christie, I would stick to buying the paperback.

    Not her best

    I love Agatha Christie's novels, but this is a collection of short stories. Some were great, but others were dull and simple. If you want to get into Christie, read one of her novels first.

    Perfect for quick-reading

    This collection of 14 short stories is perfect for lunch-break or pre-bed reading. Hercule Poirot and Captain Hastings are living together in London, taking cases for various clients, or simply relating tales of past adventures. Charming and elegant; effective.

    One of Christie's best

    THIS was the book that started me into reading all of Christie's Poirot material. Each of these short stories highlights Poirot's uncanny knack for solving seemingly impossible cases using those 'little grey cells.' I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone wondering where to start reading the Poirot series.

    Poirot Investigates

    This has been probably the quickest read out of the 4 books so far. This was a collection of 14 short stories that revolved around separate cases investigated by Hercule Poirot. From what I was able to discern they take place between The Mysterious Affair at Styles and The Murder on the Links. I'm assuming this because Colonel Hastings relates all the stories and since he appears to still be single this was the only conclusion I could come to. Now I'm sure either Becke or Dulcinea could set me straight on this if I'm wrong (as I'm sure they will if I am).


    Now for the most part I found most of the stories to be engaging and well thought out. Though they are shorted in length they didn't, with few exceptions, jump to conclusions that weren't supported by the clues discussed in the stories.


    If I were to pick one or two favorites from the stories I would have to go with "The Tragedy at Mardson Manor", "The Mystery of Hunter's Lodge", and "The Veiled Lady". I felt all three of these stories showed off Poirot's reasoning skills and Christie's style of writing. They are not, by far, the only good stories in this collection for I found all but two to be wonderfully thought out and executed.


    The only two I did not care too much for were "The Adventure of the Egyptian Tomb" and "The Adventure of the Cheap Flat". The first I found to be a bit cliched but it could be that I'm just not a fan of "Egyptian Curse" stories. The second I found the jump in logic that Poirot made to be a little bit to far to carry me along.


    Now whether I liked all the stories or not I absolutely loved the names for all of them. They were all brilliant and reminded me of the CBS Mystery Radio programs I would listen to as a kid. Now I'm not old enough to have listened to those when they first came out but somehow my grandparents had a whole bunch on tape and I would listen to them all the time. The titles alone were enough to get me interested in them.


    I found this to be a better read than my last foray into Agatha Christie land and I will probably be revisiting my favorites often.
