“Instinct is a marvelous thing. It can neither be explained nor ignored.”
And on to my second book by Agatha Christie.
This might have been my least favorite by Christie but it was still worth the read. I haven’t exactly been going about her books in order, since this is the first Hercule Poirot mystery she wrote and I started with the tenth. I was told the stories aren’t tied to each other so it’s okay to start with whichever one you want.
Although it might have been my least favorite it was still fairly interesting. Agatha Christie loves to keep you hooked (and confuse you) with her clues and deductions. Or Hercule Poirot’s deductions. Plenty of twists and turns when you least expect them and as usual, you play the guessing game. This one was a bit easy to figure out compared to the other few that I read. All in all these books are classics and to me are must reads if you need a bit of mystery in your life.
