    Story
    "Poirot at his best: short"
    What did you love best about Poirot Investigates?

    Poirot, like Sherlock Holmes, is at his best in short stories, and this is a collection of mostly clever ones. Agatha Christie has a tendency to cheat sometimes, and Poirot's deductions are sometimes little more than guesswork, but that's a lot more forgivable in a short story than a full-length novel. It happens in some of these stories, but they're good enough to survive it.

    Also, David Suchet pretty much is the voice of Poirot now. He does it well here.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There is only one character that matters here.

    "Entertaining Short Whodunits"

    This was a fun little collection of Poirot short stories. Glad to say, of the 14 mysteries, I caught the same clues as Poirot and guessed the culprit at least a few times. If nothing else, I can always tell what Hastings will pick up on and know that that will likely be wrong. Last story a rare gem in which Poirot relates a story of a case in which he failed.
    As only my second Poirot book, though I have read many since, I thought these made a great introduction to Christie's style, almost like they were a way of breaking me in as a reader and getting to know Poirot's methods before getting to some more of the full-length novel mysteries.

    Story
    "I Love David Suchet & Hercule Poirot."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I would. Its very relaxing to listen too and the story itself is excellent.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Hercule Poirot. Other than being a great detective, he is also a wonderful person.


    What does David Suchet bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He brings not only his voice, but he also tones in his voice that you wouldn't get by just reading the book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Oh definitely yes.

    Story
    "Superb narration by David Suchet but a change...."
    What made the experience of listening to Poirot Investigates the most enjoyable?

    The narration was amazing ... Felt like I was "watching" the BBC show!


    Who was the most memorable character of Poirot Investigates and why?

    Poirot,of course!


    Any additional comments?

    Loved it until the 14th chapter "the Veiled Lady" the narration sounded all the same--what happened to Hastings and Poirot's voice??? It all sounded the same! Annoying! Did anyone else notice this?
