    Story
    "Poirot at his finest."

    This is one of Christie's best novels. Poirot is brilliant and engaging, the mystery is thoughful, the characters are from Dame Agatha's usual repertoire, but I love them and the ending is most unpredictable.

    Story
    "Mrs mcgintys dead"

    A good example of Christies's writing , all the favorite things are there, hercule poirot, himself, and as an added treat, mrs. Oliver, the thinly veiled copy of Christie, herself. At least, I think so. The story follows the road of most these mysteries, finding info and being confused, using the "little gray cells" to get a "a little idea". Proving it to himself and then for a grand finale, announcing it to group. Some small fun things are his description of his rooming house. From the hostess bleeding in the beans, which she has announced already don't look so good, to giant dogs leaping in out of the windows, it's a funny segment.

    "Great Story, Excellent Narration, Classic Poirot!"
    What did you love best about Mrs. McGinty's Dead?

    Colorful characters, Quirky Poirot


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's got all the fun twists, intrigue, and dry humor you expect from Agatha Christie.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Poirot's summation, of course!


    Any additional comments?

    It's hard for me to find an Agatha Christie novel I haven't already read. Even though I think I read this novel many years ago in print, the audio version was thoroughly enjoyable.
