Elephants Can Remember | [Agatha Christie]

Elephants Can Remember

Hercule Poirot stood on the cliff-top. For here, many years earlier, there had been a tragic accident: the broken body of a woman was discovered on the rocks at the foot of the cliff. This was followed by the grisly discovery of two more bodies, a husband and wife, shot dead. But who had killed whom? Was it a suicide pact? A crime of passion? Or cold-blooded murder?

Publisher's Summary

Hercule Poirot stood on the cliff-top. For here, many years earlier, there had been a tragic accident: the broken body of a woman was discovered on the rocks at the foot of the cliff.

This was followed by the grisly discovery of two more bodies, a husband and wife, shot dead. But who had killed whom? Was it a suicide pact? A crime of passion? Or cold-blooded murder?

Poirot delves back into a crime committed 15 years earlier and discovers that, when there is a distinct lack of physical evidence, it's just as well that "old sins leave long shadows".

    "Not Christie's best work"
    If you could sum up Elephants Can Remember in three words, what would they be?

    Classic Christie mystery


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    It might be because I've read so many of Christie's mysteries before but I found this story slightly predictable.

    "Avoid the later Christie novels"

    I've really enjoyed Hugh Fraser's other readings of Christie's novels, and, whilst Fraser is as good as ever, sadly Christie herself just isn't up to scratch here.

    First published in the 1970s, Elephants Can Remember doesn't come close to the Poirot novels of forty years before. I couldn't even listen to it all the way through, it was so dull. Best avoided I think, and better to try another Poirot story instead.

    "Enjoyable listen"

    I enjoyed listening to this typical Christie plot with twists and turns galore. It focuses quite a bit on Ariadne Oliver before Poirot gets involved but is well read by Hugh Frazer
