    One thought on “Peril at End House”

    1. I always enjoy a nice Agatha Christie book She can be relied upon to be entertaining and a bit tricky Peril at End House is normal Hercule Poirot fare The characters are mostly English upper class, the setting is an English country house and Poirot gently mocks nearly everyone Interestingly even he seems to be initially confused by the situation as a murder actually takes place on his watch Of course eventually he comes to grip with the proceedings and displays the murderer to great effect in fr [...]

    2. I picked it up at random, and was wondering if I would get to read a decent mystery novel I wasn t left disappointed Agatha Christie can weave a mystery out of anything, I guess She creates an atmosphere of certain mystery and unease that pulls all your attention and creates a craving to know , thereby getting you hooked without letting you know This one got me hooked from the first chapter Until I finished The solution is ingenious, and unprecedented Recommended.

    4. Some books don t stand up to rereading This is one of them.The characters are mostly a bit ridiculous including Poirot s faithful sidekick, Hastings too many of them are very shady.There are too many coincidences.The crimes are too unlikely.Lastly not view spoiler one but two criminals are effectively let off the hook hide spoiler Poor show Christie dashed poor show

    5. The best Agatha Christie novel I ve read in a long time Not simply because the mystery is so deliciously confusing and leaves Poirot 50 different shades of puzzled, not because we get to see a much human and emotional Poirot, but very much because it has such a dazzling cast of characters, and reminded me than anything of Paris in the 1920 s I was reading this and I really wanted to see the adaption of it on the big screen, because I had these great images in my head Especially our main victim [...]

I almost never rate a Christie book lower than 4 stars, because I just love her writing I won t go as far as saying she s the best writer in the history of the world, but she s a master of her genre and I always enjoy her books They re such wonderful comfort food, enjoyable and untaxing to read but still with interesting and compelling stories that make you want to find out whodunnit.However I find Peril at End House is one of her less enjoyable books I can t explain why Maybe it s because I alw [...]

    12. Peril at End House was a great mystery to follow It did not pretended to be anything than a straight forward murder mystery There was hardly any social commentary and none of which I remember to be dubious well, not as dubious as some of Dame Agatha s other ones , and I did not guess the murderer until the very end It also had some of the delightful conversations where Poirot pokes fun at Hastings either about his understanding of women or his admiration for the capabilities of English sportsmen [...]

    20.

    21. I caught only vague snatches of Poirot, televised versions, during my formative years My parents, once in a while, pulled out their dusty videotapes with David Suchet I knew the impressively mustached face, was familiar with the smug French accent so naturally belonging to it Until now, unfortunately, I d never read any of Agatha Christie s Poirot I was loyal to Sherlock Holmes, or so I thought I had no idea what I was missing Make no mistake, I still adore Holmes, but I also find I m delighted [...]

    23. This was a fairly enjoyable Poirot installment, with an interesting play on the typical formula Poirot and Hastings start out on holiday, with nothing to induce Poirot per his own proclamation into taking on a new case aside from a bullet whizzing past his head Of course, that very thing nearly happens, but instead of the egg shaped head, the aforementioned bullet forces a hole through the hat of the charmingly modern young lady introduced as Nick Buckley Missing her noggin, but doing just as wa [...]

    24. As always, enjoyable light hearted stuff with Poirot and Hastings in action I guessed the murderer from about Chapter 2 before a murder had even happened , but I am never sure if this is because I read this one as a child and have some latent memory of it, or because I am used to Christie s style Either way, still very readable.
