Best Hercule Poirot Tales
The Top Ten
Simply the best! Unthinkable twist in the end!
It is the twist in the end which has broken all rules of detective fiction and makes this book above all books by Agatha Christie.
Typical christie novel with the needle of suspicion pointed at everyone yet the murderer escapes the bounds of imagination!
Poirot is best!V 16 Comments
I absolutely love this book! The amount of thought that Agatha Christie put into all the details that goes into this ending is amazing. I've read it and reread it many times and each time I seem to notice another little hint that I missed the last time through.
Unthinkable ending! This is rather an awkward murder mystery, read a few others before you read this one, because this one is truly a revelation in the history of murder mysteries!
AWESOME book! Agatha Christie puts everything into this one! Suspense, thriller, and a huge twist! Awesome book!
The first Poirot I read, and easily the best. My five favorites go:
5. The Murder of Roger Ackroyd
4. A Mysterious Affair at Styles
3. Evil Under the Sun
2. Cat Among the Pigeons
1. Murder on the Orient Express
Brilliant. Simply mind blowing
Quick paced, glamorous and loved the conclusion
Fantastic! The best mystery of all! Very cleverly written and described
Brilliant bookV 3 Comments
Pure genius. The red-herrings Christie throws around amply in the novel are absolutely thrilling.
Why is this one below Death on the Nile?
It just blew my head.

I just love this book! The characters are so well described. The whole plot where Caroline Crale does not protest her innocence, except in a letter to her daughter is so interesting... And of course to find out the truth after all these years... Elsa Green's eyes having a strange look captured in Amya's painting... Etc. Etc. There are a lot of things to love in this book. Also, the events are retold several times, but only Poirot understands what they really mean and puts them all together!
Best agatha christie creation for me
This book is symphonic - beautiful prose and a superlative plot. THE best Poirot mystery accordint to me.V 1 Comment
The best agatha christie book ever... 100 times better than Murder of Roger Ackroyd.
Everybody lies... the best!
Of course The Murder of roger ackroyd is the best... But this book is also great... In the end you cn never guess who is the murderer
Shows the greatest difference between Sherlock holmes and Hercule poirot. While the former depends on evidence and deduction based on the evidence more than psychology Poirot deals with human psychology more than any other thing.
This is a hallmark of that element of his
Rediscover this as a book club book. The psychological elements will stir great discussion.
Great plot, lovely setting and a surprising revelation!
A good book. Poirot rocks.
A phenomenal novel.
Loved this book and the identity of the killer
Poirot's last but one of the bestV 1 Comment
Very complex but still loved it
First part of novel is slower, but the end is phenomenal and makes perfect sense of the motive.
While Poirot is staying at the school of a friend, a murder occurs and it seems Princess Shaista who has been attending the school, has been kidnapped.V 1 Comment
This is such an awesome novel, so many teasing storylines. The result was kept silent til the very end
This is really best book ever! So awesome story!
I know it is not a typical whodunit and is different from all her other books... but this was my first Christie... and I fell totally in love with Poirot... the little plots were amazing!
Easily one of my favorite Poirot's! I don't care if he is going James Bond, it is AMAZING!
Autumn book. Infact one of my first books
Not every mystery has to be a grand adventure. Let's relax with a story by the fire...
I love this book! Bit weird that only 8 people were on the plane but still great-well developed story
Why isn't this higher? This one had perhaps my favorite characters. And the ending is great!
Awesome plot and ending
The characters are so interesting and complex that she doesn't need to resort to a gimmick to make the ending satisfying. The main themes are subtle, unexplored, and controversial. This was a first of its kind.
You are draw in immediately by the characters and the beautiful symmetry of the story...such a satisfying ending.
