Next to "And Then There Were None", this is my favorite Agatha Christie thriller. This one was first published way back in 1937, and it has everything you would expect from the mistress of suspense: An ingenious plot, way-out but still believable characters and a setting that is as thrilling and adventurous as the exotic land of Egypt itself. Needless to say, Hercule Poirot (whom I much prefer to Miss Marple) is in fine form throughout.

This mystery is one of her most popular books. It feels like a romantic bit of history due to the era (mid 1930's), and it feels relevant to today, because human nature remains, essentially, the same. As one reader noted, the editing is appalling. It has been terrible in all these $.99cent books. The layout is so bad that, often, different dialogue from 2 different characters will be crammed together in one paragraph or section. This can be both frustrating and, at times, puzzling. It takes rereading a section in order for the dialogue to make sense. At other times, the dialogue will jump ahead a page. Also, these cheap editions are missing the character summations found in the beginning of many of the paperbacks. Lots of crime scene diagrams are missing, too.

Classic ruined by poor publishing throughout. Don't buy because dialogue, grammar, everything is a disgrace to the writings of this distinguished author.

Never have I seen a movie cover this book correctly. That's what makes it so much better than I expected. I finally got the murders and the motives right but with the wrong methods and chronological order desperately wrong. Great book!

Brilliant read. Love the story and still did not get who did it even though I have read it 3 times during my life.

The beginning drags on; the exciting part takes a while to get to. This was my first Christie novel and I had just finished it today because of a school reading assignment. This book's victim and murderer are interesting as well as the side crimes. Overall this is a good read excluding the dragging start.

This was my first Hercule Poirot mystery, so I wasn't sure what to expect. The first half of the book was setup and seemed to drag a bit, but once the murder actually occurred the investigation and piecing together the evidence was very well-written and had enough twists and turns to keep me guessing until the end. I probably would have given this 4 stars if the setup hadn't taken so long...I much preferred Christie's "And Then there Were None." As far as genius detectives go, Hercule Poirot was okay, but I much prefer Sherlock Holmes or Dupin at this point. Poirot is much more kind and personable than either of them, but I find their arrogance or lack of social skills more entertaining. Poirot also frequently uses French phrases which are never translated (I could figure out about 3/4 of them without resorting to a French-English dictionary) and I found this obnoxious rather than endearing. Overall: Great plot, mildly interesting main character, overly slow pacing
