As an Agatha Christie fan I was looking forward to hearing the story that her family thought was worthy to bear her name. I sat down and began listeni..Show More »ng.
When last we heard about Poirot he had died. The story seems to have taken place after he retires, and works with a new (or at least a character I do not remember) Scotland Yard character. This character seems to be less policeman / detective like than Hastings, weak and ineffective. Poirot is both argumentative and bullying, and is giving orders to the Scotland Yard man - sorry, but he is not the boss of anyone & would not be ordering anyone about - he would be giving direction. Too much of the dialogue is repetitive or just plain lame.The Scotland Yard fellow goes on to have his own adventure - so not really a Poirot mystery.
I'm still listening to this, but am so disappointed that I had to go ahead and write this much of a review.
