This quote 😆. I've only read 2 Christie books. Both times I was startled by the vocabulary. The 1st time was reading the Orient Expess. The book was cataloged in my gradeschool library and included the word orgy. This time I was shocked by the 20th century normative racist mores. 😳 I wasn't expecting it. I think people read books like this for the same reason I got sucked into Downton Abbey. If someone could just tell me what that reason is..?

mandarchy I can't help but point out that the word orgy also appears in Peter Pan. When these books were published it just meant crazy party. My grandfather used to refer to the crazy stuff kids did as orgies. So unsettling to hear gramps say it 😳 6d
KathyWheeler There‘s a lot of very casual racism and anti-foreign sentiment in Christie‘s novels. I just started reading her books a few years ago and was very shocked by it. 6d
Scochrane26 I like Christie books because she usually has a creative ending & they‘re fast reads. The racism & foreigner references I try to ignore, as well as the term “old pussies”, which is used often in the Miss Marple series lol 6d

mandarchy @KathyWheeler what a relief publishers are finally publishing alternate perspectives and making casual racism (never should have been a thing) unacceptable. I think I'll return to the 21st century. 6d
mandarchy @Scochrane26 this last week that has been the p word, I had to hear Colbert joke about T grabbing it to finally get what the p word was. I work with children. Swearing is so out of my norm. The p word is poop where I work. 6d
Scochrane26 @mandarchy I typically hate the p word, but it makes me laugh when I read it in a Christie book, maybe because I know it means something different. 5d
mandarchy @Scochrane26 we had a cat dish labeled with the p word in the '80s. It was so fun to wait for our exchange students to ask about it. That word is not a problem for me and that's why I wondered why they said p-word instead of pussy in the news. I was more shocked by the use of the n word in the book. 5d

Ok, I went on book sites to order an inexpensive copy and found this edition for about $6. But in truth it was the cover art that prompted me to buy it. What I did not realize was that it is like an 8x11 magazine!

Librarybelle How awesome! 2w
tokorowilliamwallace Yes, like a literary magazine. Nice edition! One of the benefits of thrifting or buying secondhand is the older editions one can find---makes it more interesting. 2w

28/22 In the UK David Suchet IS Poirot. As a mystery fan, Agatha Christie, is hugely lacking from my life. Although I did watch Poirot in the 90s. I‘m starting from the beginning and I‘m going to work my way through them all starting with this one published in 1920. It was interesting to see the character of Poirot begining to develop and I enjoyed the courthouse scenes. But Hastings… what a twit 😂 #booked2022 #adaptedforthesmallscreen

I was i was listening to the Currently Reading Podcast and felt realised I have never actually read any Agatha Christie so I have decided to read Poirot in order (although not all at once!) after this I must leave Murder behind for book club and #booked2022 reads for the rest of June!

Very well way to describe Poirot to those who do not know how he works. This was apparently Agatha‘s first mystery novel, which introduced Poirot. Haven read other books of Hers, this was quite tame. Though it was no less conniving. A family murder mystery, questions between both dies of this half family. Which made it little difficult to know who was on which side. Still a good read to get the worrying at that period.

The was amusing to come across. If not just People must really believe that. Both that they‘d be able to just know who the culprit was, but that family would know. That final chapter piece is exactly what Poirot does every mystery! Especially funny knowing this was Agatha‘s first mystery novel with him.

A fun little #SerialReader lark! My first Poirot and second Agatha Christie - I'm excited to see her more developed skills in later novels! Fun twists and turns from the POV of a naive Watson-like Hastings who's hanging out with a quirky Holmes-like Poirot. Not a particularly sad murder, so there's a fun focus on clues and all the little intrigues of the household! ⭐⭐⭐/5 #Poirot @SerialReader

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I could not put this book down once the investigation started rolling. That said, the narrator was driving me nuts. Though it kind of makes me laugh considering this is Dame Agatha‘s impression of what goes on inside the mind of a upper class young man. Basically not much. The mystery was absolutely fantastic and I already want to dive back in to find the clues in real time. Thank you a great first #nwyd22 @MatchlessMarie 😁! ⬇️

This is my first Poirot. I love a bit of crime fiction and I'm on a real streak with them. I was wondering how accessible this would be given it was written 100 years ago but I found just as compelling as more contemporary mysteries.

I loved that it was told from Hasting's point of view. A great mystery.

Victoria_Clyne @SolaRaynor something to look forward to. I have a compulsion to read books in order. 7mo

A charming classic detective novel, introducing Hercule Poirot. I really liked the gentle humour, but the pure ‘whodunit‘ style means that the characters are mostly there to provide clues 🙂

I‘m keen on reading all of Agatha Christie‘s works, I‘ve only read Murder on the Orient Express so far, so have started at the beginning of the poirot series. I listened on audio, which I enjoyed. Great narrator though I did want to wallop him sometimes - I don‘t know much about Christie herself but I found the way women were portrayed and discussed amusing, especially her writing as a man about women. ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫

Hazel2019 I still haven‘t read anything by Agatha Christie! Trying to figure out what of hers to pick up first… 13mo
ravenlee @Hazel2019 I haven‘t read much of Christie yet, but may I recommend And Then There Were None? It has the benefit of being a stand-alone and it was really well done. I liked it more than the single Marple and Poirot books I‘ve read. 13mo

I enjoyed this one, but not as much as I hoped that I would. It was very much ‘of it‘s time‘ and I guessed the ending, although maybe I remembered it from way back when?! I borrowed the first 3 Poirot books from the library with the idea that I would re-read the whole series. I think I will carry on for a while, but that idea doesn‘t excite me as much as it did.

Still a pick though! This was my #bookspin for May.

My second ever Christie and first Hecule Poirot book. This one kept me guessing who done it and I can see (again) why Agatha Christie is so popular. It felt set in it's contemporary time but didn't feel stodgy by today's standards. I will certainly be reading others by this author.

I found this particular Poirot to be interesting in large part due to all the time spent in a courtroom. Definitely a good introduction to the detective, although I prefer later texts where the mystery is the sole focus and the reader doesn‘t also courtroom drama. #AuthorAMonth #LittenListen #BookSpinBingo #WinterGames2020 #TeamReadNosedReindeer +16

Good twists (which is trademark Christie) but I wasn‘t fully engaged. This was her first published mystery and introduces Poirot and his sidekick Hastings. I was always more of a Miss Jane Marple fan, so I‘ll pull one of those off the shelf for my next #authoramonth read.

This was before the internet, so there are literal gaps in my collection, as seen above. I used the Bedside companion (black book, lower right) to help me. But those last few I just couldn‘t find 😂.

As the Libby version of the cover suggests, I didn‘t find this very colorful, but I loved my introduction to Hercule Poirot. It was witty, clever, and surprising. Everything I expected from an Agatha Christie novel.
