I am proud of myself that I made it through this book without flipping to the back to see the reveal, a bad habit of mine. 🤗 It was my first book with Poirot in it, and I had a lot of fun watching him interview everyone and figure things out. The story was engaging enough to break me out of a serious reading slump, though I can see where some might have found it a bit slow going. However it was perfect for me.

I quite enjoyed this "Whodunit" book from the Queen of Mystery. Now it's time to watch the movie. #agathachristie

I cannot lie - I stopped reading this multiple times to look up cross-country train travel. I‘m not sure what that says about me but I‘m going with it.

This was so very satisfying.

I listened to the Audible drama of this and what a disappointment. I love the actual book but this version was terrible. Poirot‘s accent was horrific! And so were a lot of the actors. Did not work for me.

lele1432 OMG I agree!! I'm so glad I didn't get this version. I love the one narrated by Kenneth Branagh. I think he does a wonderful Poirot accent! His American accents were over-the-top, but I think the end proved the purpose behind them. Sorry this one was a dud! 1mo
the-woman-who-read-everything Audiobook accents are always hit-or-miss with me, and they can really make or break a book. 1mo
Naomis-shelf I really enjoy Dan Stevens as narrator for the audio book. It is always a disappointment when the problem is with the voice and not the story. Although, it is always annoying to come across both in the same book 1mo
MoniqueReads305 Thanks for the Audible review. I am always looking for books to invest my Audible credits in and this was one that I was looking at this one as my first mystery audiobook. 1mo
Sarahreadstoomuch How unfortunate. Bad narrators - especially with bad accents- are the worst. 1mo

bromeliad @Hestapleton I'm not sure how others are using them, but I draw them out for every book I have read, and then put the date on the back, and any other things I want to note -- good quotes, page length, overall rating, etc. But doing them for the TBR sounds great, too! 2mo

Hi guys. I promise I havent forgotten about Litsy. I've been battling with some pretty bad anxiety the past two weeks that has left me literally cowering away from all social interaction. Not sure where it came from and im not sure if im in the clear since it likes to manifest out of nowhere for me but I am taking time to read after my reading hiatus. I hope everyone is having a wonderful Saturday and make sure to always find time for yourself.

Suet624 I‘m so sorry to hear. I hope you feel better soon. 4mo

#AudioBaking in the morning.

Bank Holiday, kids still in bed, cats fed, me restless. So, I'm making strawberry cake to my grandmother's recipe. All from scratch, because my grandmother made strawberry cake on a whim and never had ready made ingredients at home - me neither, she'd be proud of me.

First stage was making thick vanilla custard. Next step is sponge cake.

I listened to this on audio, and the narration was excellent, but the story was mediocre for me. It was entirely conversation and introspection. Excellent psychology and analysis, but I must prefer novels that tell a story via action and place (and interaction), rather than one that consists of discussion about a single event that happened at the beginning. I was bored and unengaged.

I got this book for christmas and I tried reading Murder on the Orient Express once before and could not get into it.
However, with this 3 book collection, I am now getting into it. I love mystery novels like "And Then There Were None" and "Private".
Hercule Poirot is quite an interesting character. So I'm excited to read these stories and unravel the whodunit storylines.

Oh. My. Word.

Dan Stevens is AMAZING. I had no idea that he could do accents so well. His Poirot was perfect, but even more impressive to me was his range of American accents (he is English, for those who don't know him). I had read this in print years & years ago, so the ending was no surprise, but what a delightful listen. I hope that he records more Poirot mysteries!

A true mystery in which I doubt anyone would be able to correctly guess the culprit. The unfolding of events only enhances the confusion 😣 of the reader and dissuades one from aspiring to be a real live detective for fear of rendering oneself an idiot. A rather heartwarming ❤ ending, if I do say so myself. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
