My first Christie

first Hercule Poirot mystery
This is merely my second Agatha Christie, but after this and 'And Then There Were None', I am hooked. The ending was definitely not one that I expected, which made it all the more interesting, considering it all took place within days, without the tools science & technology provides now. All logic, just the smarts. I have now become a fan of Ms. Christie, and I look forward to reading more.
Dan Stevens's performance just amazes me. His narration brings alive the characters, as he's able to pick up nuances of each person, giving them a distinct voice in the story. Well done, I hope he does more.
