This is slightly unusual in that it involves the solving of a cold case: and, not just any cold case. It is a 16 year old homicide case for which someone was already convicted-- someone who died in prison.

I picked two possible killers and got one correct. This book was a little bit harder to read due to the format laid out by the situation of time being in the distant past. But Agatha Christie figured out a way to make sure the story work and work well!

Usual list of suspects for murder but with a twist. Poirot has to find the killer of a murder that happened 16 years ago. He does it with no crime scene to investiage. One of Christi's best.

This is a fun one where Poirot investigates an old murder that has already been tried and the guilty party convicted. The characters all have their secrets which it is fun to try to guess along with Poirot.

The question of who done it is there to the end. This book didn't hold me as much as some of her others but, it did keep me guessing. A fair read.

I love this book! The plot is amazing, so are the twists. I love the writing style. Some of the characters were awesome! It is also dramatic and romantic. It is also thrilling at the last few chapters. And the ending was very surprising and I was touched! I really recommend this book.

Although, I count myself as an Agatha Christie fan,this is among my least favorite... It does seem somewhat repetitive and tends to drag a bit. However, like most of her stories, it was still fun to try and 'detect' the same evidence that Poirot found. Three stars for this point and simply that it is Agatha Christie. Some of her other great works, for those who are newer to the collection: And Then There Were None, Moving Finger, Curtain, Murder on the Orient Express and Death on the Nile. Another Christie-esque book that is a good read is The Bedside, Bathtub & Armchair Companion to Agatha Christie. It gives a synopsis for each of her works, which helps when deciding which book to choose!

This was the first Christie I read, and I thought it was great. Another reader said that he didn't like the manuscripts written by the five characters. I myself found those very interesting. Seeing the time before the murder from five different points of view was entertaining, and it was very well written. To 'skip' those manuscripts was a very dumb thing to do. No wonder he didn't like the book, he skipped through the most important part. The murderer was hardly easy to guess, and the only way you could guess is if you did just that: guess. I doubt it this disgruntled reader knew the motive, or if he noticed any of the clues. Five Little Pigs is very full of emotion. Caroline Crale is a very interesting part, and though we, the reader, don't see much of her, it's easy to relate with her and recognize her emotions. Five Little Pigs is an excellent book, and I highly reccomend it.
