4.0 out of 5 stars Agatha Christie's Poirot: A classic, 24 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Poirot in the Orient: Omnibus (Paperback)
I have last read Agatha Christie's Poirot stories way back in the late 1980's. Thus began my love affair with the crime/thriller/mystery genre. After browsing through this genre a month ago, I decided to return to Dame Agatha's famous detective. I was worried that the plot and characters would have been too familiar from the tv series' which I also enjoy. I am relieved to say, 'not at all'... Although the tv series is faithful to the books, its not slavishly so. I truly enjoyed the book. What is good about the Omnibus editions is that you can pick and choose what you want to read and when.
If you need a change from the sometimes too sophisticated contemporary detective story, go with Agatha Christie. Her love of the Orient comes through in this series and serves as a nice setting for her clever sleuth, Poirot. The biggest fun is trying to work out 'who dunnit'...Enjoy.
