I bought this book specifically for taking with me on short plane rides. I have read (I think) every Hercule Poirot book written by Agatha Christie with the exception of "Curtain". I just can't read of Hercule Poirot dying. This book is filled with short stories and fascinating little mysteries. A great book to take on plane rides or anytime you need a minute to get away. I love these little stress relievers.

I very very much enjoy the regular long fiction Hercule Poirot novels by Agatha Christie so I was really quite surprised at how much I disliked this short story collection. The first one is quite long and it was quite good for a bit, but the ending was very cheesy. I could not even follow the second one, the whole case and how Hercule solved it just seemed to crazy fast to me and I couldn't really follow the "logic" behind it, I stopped reading halfway through the 3rd story. Sadly, I have no motivation at all to finish the stories, I am quite disappointed so far. I recommend sticking to her regular books, there is just so much more going on, and passing up on her short stories.
