The A.B.C Murders | 4 star review

I know I say this about all of the Poirot books and I’m going to say it again, but I think The A.B.C Murders is my favourite so far. I think the fact that there is SO much happening in this book that you genuinely don’t know what’s going to happen. Plus at one point it genuinely looks like Poirot is going to be outsmarted which is unbelievably rare but is a nice view into how he deals with almost failure. […]

Death in the Clouds | 4 star review

I had quite the audiobook spurt this month and managed to listen to quite a few of the Poirot books. I’m not going to hit my goal of 25 but you can’t have everything I suppose. Death in the Clouds is definitely one of my favourites I loved the fact that the whole reason Poirot has no idea who the murderer is is that he was so overtaken by motion sickness to think about anything else. Plus the way that […]

Three Act Tragedy | 3 star review

If you didn’t know I have pledged to read 25 of the Hercule Poirot by the end of the year Three Act Tragedy is number 11, so I know I won’t get to all of them, but I’m going to make a good number. I love the different stories and characters that take part in the stories, and as always I never see the ending coming! Three Act Tragedy definitely didn’t disappoint in that concern either. I always worry about […]

Murder on the Orient Express | 5 star review

Murder on the Orient Express was the film I really wanted to watch on the plane over to our honeymoon, so it was a bit of a rush job, I ended up finishing it the day before we left for Orlando. I think this might just be my favourite Poirot book so far. I loved the collection of characters and the way the story ended up playing out. I will say which isn’t technically book related that I wasn’t massively […]

Lord Edgware Dies | 4 star review

Lord Edgware Dies is another book in the Poirot mystery series, and one that I think had not only me stumped but also Poirot and as always the ending didn’t fail to impress. It has some of the best collections of characters and I really enjoyed the way everything ended up coming together, I definitely think this was one of the more intricate plot lines. I have never had so many suspects and had each one turn out to be […]

Peril at End House | 4 star review

I hope you didn’t mind the long hiatus too much, I was away on my Honeymoon! I wasn’t as organised as I wanted to be and I ended up leaving my laptop at home, so blogging ended up being a no go whilst I was away. I thought I would kick my blog back off with one of the book reviews that was supposed to be written and scheduled to go live whilst I was away. Peril at End House […]

Black Coffee | 3 star review

Black Coffee was one of the audiobooks that I needed to finish before I read The Murder on the Orient Express – it’s one of the films on the in-flight entertainment on my Disney Honeymoon – and I have a weird compulsion that I can’t watch something without reading it first. I wasn’t aware when I started this book, that it was a novelisation of a play that Christie had written, and I think that’s why I didn’t score it […]

The Mystery of the Blue Train | 4 star review

Its been a long while since I last reviewed an Agatha Christie Poirot book and The Mystery of the Blue Train is the latest in my Poirot journey, it was another Audible listen and I am definitely enjoying listening to them as opposed to reading them. That might change as my best friend for Christmas bought me Murder on the Orient Express so I will be reading that, so I’ll actually be able to compare the two. Anyway, I think […]

The Big Four | 4 star review

The Big Four is the fifth book in the Poirot series, if you want to read the rest of the reviews, click here – 1, 2, 3, & 4. When I originally picked The Big Four to listen to I read some of the reviews and there seemed to be a general dislike for the storyline, with many believing it to be too fanciful and dramatic. I have to say I disagree, I really loved the way the story moved and […]

The Murder of Roger Ackroyd Book Review

The Murder of Roger Ackroyd is not the first Poirot book I have read check out my reviews here, here and here for the others! I had heard that if I only read one Poirot then it should be The Murder of Roger Ackroyd would be. I never really believed it and I’m not really sure I can pass judgement on that until I’ve read the others. But I have to say I enjoyed this book a lot. I don’t […]
