Poirot, book 1
So, I wanted to love this.
And there is undeniably a charm to any Agatha Christie.
But... sigh. This one didn't do it for me so much. It was fine, but Hastings got annoying and the whole plot just felt a little too convoluted.
I'm told they get better, and a lot of the issues did seem like first novel issues, so I'm sure they do. Certainly I've loved her Tommy and Tuppence books and the stand-alones I've read.
If nothing else, though, it's a good read to see how it all got started. :)
