Well, I had to wait for this book to arrive, as I unexpectedly found that I didn t have it, what So I am a little, oh ok 2 months, behind everyone else who is doing the Poirot unofficial challenge, but as you can tell from my 4 star marking, i am really enjoying this challenge If i m honest I didn t realise how many Poirot s I had not read.

G WodehouseThis is a collection of short stories featuring world s best detective 2 and his clueless sidekick My edition has 14 stories total In them Hercule Poirot get to investigate murders, kidnappings, thefts, and other related crimes Even in the short form of her mysteries The Dame Agatha Christie manages to make them complicated enough to make the solution incomprehensible to the readers at first sight As well as at second And third And so on Until Poirot explains them that is I managed to solve one of them before Poirot Ya ✓ Poirot Investigates ✓ This is an interesting collection of Poirot stories first published in 1924 and all of which feature Hastings as narrator Hastings often comments on how conceited Poirot is, although this is justified, as Poirot uses his little grey cells, to solve many mysteries and even wins a bet with Japp, during this book The stories involve missing jewels, blackmail, mysterious insurance claims, the even intriguing case of a very cheap flat, in an expensive part of London unheard of which piques Poirot s interest, and With Italian nobleman, a missing Prime Minister and a possible Egyptian curse obviously inspired by the discovery of Tutankhamun s tomb in 1922 , this is a really fun collection, with some influential clients beating a past to Poirot s London flat to ask his advice Although I do prefer novels to short stories, this was an interesting book Poirot is at his ease in these A collection of eleven short stories featuring Hercule Poirot because of the short story format there are too many coincidences, loose ends and often a boring end None of the stories hold your attention for long Avoidable read Mon ami, ce sont des histoires agr ables Lovely stuff this Poirot Investigates is a nice, compact selection of stories about cases quickly and concisely solved No, not every story is a mind boggler, though one or two went clear over my head, but for the most part I could follow these Occasionally I even solved the crime well in advance of Poirot I m no heavy reader of mysteries, so I attribute this to the age of the stories and the modern day prevalence on TV for such things By now we can t help but to have seen it all before What s not to love about Hercule Poirot Okay, yes he is conceited However, it seems almost impossible that someone so infinitely ahead of everyone else in their field could be anything but conceited Modesty in such a person would seem disingenuous If Sherlock Holmes kept eschewing the well deserved praise thrust upon Ne mislim da je ova zbirka kriminalisti kih pri a o Herkulu Poarou lo a, ali su romani daleko bolji.
This is a collection of Hercule Poirot short stories eleven of them altogether, and each case deviously clever than the last.
I am not a huge fan of short stories, in general, because I like longer, involved stories where I can explore the surroundings and the characters in depth I am also a big fan of plots that include sub plots, and short stories don t have the space for most of those extras.
However, I must add that Agatha Christie writes short stories very, very well The pace is fast, and even though there is only one main plot, it always has sufficient sides to it to keep Poirot and Captain Hastings on their toes.
Well, having said that Captain Hastings is always a step or two behind Poirot Luckily, Monsieur Poirot is also a gentleman and he is adept at smoothing ruffled feathers even Captain Hastings For me, the best part of these short stories is Poirot Investigates Hercules Poirot, 3 , Agatha Christie 1997 The Adventure of The Western Star Adventure of the Cheap Flat The Adventure of the Egyptian Tomb The Jewel Robbery at the Grand Metropolitan The Kidnapped Prime Minister The Disappearance of Mr Davenheim The Adventure of the Italian Nobleman The Case of the Missing Will 1890 1915 1926 1976 80 86
