3. These stories are closer to novellas than her typical short stories. Did you think this was successful? Would you have preferred them to be longer or shorter?

TheAromaofBooks I'm not a short story person, so the longer the better haha I did feel like there was a little more room to develop some characters beyond names, especially in the story where the guy gets shot in the locked study - there's a whole house party there, and these slightly longer stories helped me feel like I had time to learn a little more about them. 2h

Hi #agathachristieclubR2 friends! I'm drowning in book-judging duties this right now and of course behind on posting, so I'm going to do this quick so I can clear my mind!

1. Did you enjoy this book? Why or why not?

Laughterhp I read this one a long time ago but then tried to reread it. I wasn‘t feeling the audiobook, so I stopped my reread. From what I remember, I did like this one, but wasn‘t my favorite. 10h
TheAromaofBooks These weren't my all-time favorites, but that's partially because I'm not a big short-story reader. Still, Christie does fool me every time, so there's that 😂 @Laughterhp 2h

Finishing up the #agathachristieclubR2 book in one of my favorite places in the world (an antique-filled cabin in Glenford, OH), with this little dummy. #dogsoflitsy

— each a miniature classic of characterisation, incident and suspense.

This was an enjoyable collection of short Poirot cases. A murder staged as a suicide, a suicide that looks like murder, a theft of top secret documents, and a dangerous love triangle - all solved with Poirot's usual wit and curiosity.

Overall I enjoyed these short mysteries, but two of them I had read before in my collection of Poirot short stories. I didn‘t remember the endings, but the overall story seemed familiar to me. It was fun to read with my #lmpbc group though! And a quick read since they were short stories. Overall a pick!

This was fun: four cases featuring Poirot. I was thrown off by the first story—I‘d forgotten there were 4 separate stories & was disappointed that the solution seemed so obvious so early on. Then I realized it was a short story & I‘d reached the conclusion...🤦🏻‍♀️😂 I enjoyed these much more than other Poirot short stories I‘ve read (partly b/c there was no Hastings), but I do prefer the greater complexity of Christie‘s novel-length mysteries.

Poirot solves four utterly beguiling cases in this collection, including a mysterious suicide, a set of important lost papers, the death of a controlling patriarch, and a deadly love triangle. Agatha Christie never disappoints!

A terrific lunchtime read - 4 Poirot cases in one volume. They may be short stories, but in each one the mystery and characters are perfectly developed.

Isn‘t the cover gorgeous?! Thank you so much @cobwebmoth !

I didn‘t realize it when I first picked up the book, but this is actually four short Poirot stories. Dead Man‘s Mirror was my favorite of the four because I found it had the most twists than the others. I did enjoy each short mystery, but my favor still rests with Christie‘s long mystery novels. Still a pic!

Enjoyable collection of short stories, full of misinterpretations and plot twists.

While I did enjoy these Poirot short stories, it didn't quite capture me the same way as the full length mysteries do. But definitely enjoyable nevertheless.

At my parents for a few days and found some old books I had stored there. I knew I went through an Agatha Christie phase and wasn't sure what books I had of hers. (Ignore the filter - used the one that highlighted the books the best)

Eh. Nothing thrilling or awful here. Was disappointed by one of my favorite TV adaptations (Triangle At Rhodes), which was unfortunate. Oh well, on to the next Poirot!

All great characters are capable of entertaining us again and again, but only the very greatest are new every time we read them. Hercules Poirot is a member of this very small club. Timothy Hallinan. l
