Elephants Can Remember (Hercule Poirot Series) by Agatha Christie, John Moffatt

A mystery writer's latest whodunit isn't fiction-but rather a true crime from her own past. And if memory serves Poirot, murder-like history-repeats itself...

"Vintage Christie."-New York Times

"Christie is at her most endearingly English...cozier than ever...in a lethal way, of course."-Library Journal

Brilliant Poirot. A must read. Going back in time to save a case. Agatha at her best.

I thought this was a good book, if not a bit confusing. New characters are introduced, which I like. I recommend that other people read this mystery.

This is another well written mystery by the queen of mysteries. I hadn't read any of her works in some years, but coming back to read this one reminded me why she is the gold standard against which all others in the field are measured. Lovely book.

I agree with one reviewer that this book got repetitive. We heard the same material repeated from different characters' viewpoints. Christie handled that more deftly in earlier books. Repetition aside, it's an interesting mystery. The same reviewer stated the story highlighted Christie's opposition to adoption. I disagree with that premise. First of all, I've not noticed an anti-adoption theme in her books. Secondly, the theme of adoption in this book was part of a red herring; nothing more.

Christie offers us an interesting case that on the surface appears confusing. Only the "little gray cells" of Hercule Poirot can make sense of it all. A wonderful read for Christie fans and for anyone who loves a mystery.

This is the closest appearance of AC in any of her novels with the exception of Halloween and a few others in which Ariadne and Hercule appear together in literary former. Good book!

Poirot was hardly in the book. It was like she was trying to introduce a new sleuth. Did not enjoy it.

I've read many of Agatha Christie books and as always this one was excellent. I thought I was catching on to what Poirot was figuring out in the end...(too much Miss Marple I guess LOL! ) But as always, I was on the right track, but not quite there. I recommend this to any mystery fan!

I read this book a few months ago, during this last fall. I found it to be a nice book, though I don't think it quite measures up to some of Agatha's other Poirot mysteries. I felt that it was slightly more predictable, and had a less shocking conclusion than other Poirot novels that I have read. Even so, it centers around an interesting mystery and contains entertaining charactors that carried my attention through the less eventful sections, which occured a bit too often. But in those uneventful parts were hidden little bits of information that made sense when Poirot put everything together at the end. Ariadne Oliver was a fitting adition to the list of Poirot's friends who 'help' him in his investigations. She was humerous and entertaining to read about. I always thoroughly enjoy the bits of humor and hilarity that Agatha expertly tosses in to her books. The subject matter of this book was intriguing, what had happened between these people and how had it come about. It is a cold case that you will remember long after reading the book. I would recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of Poirot mysteries, especially those who are ready to see his little gray cells tackle a different kind of case, one that is full of family secrets, obscure clues, distant memories and tragedy. If someone has not read any Poirot however, I would suggest reading another one in the series first. Then reading this one would be fine. Though not as exciting and gripping as 'The ABC Murders' or 'Death On The Nile', this mystery is still a nice book for those who enjoy Poirot mysteries.
