4.0 out of 5 stars Quintessential Christie - A Crime Lovers Feast, 5 Oct 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding (The Christie Collection) (Paperback)
Agatha Christie has the unique ability to capture the readers interest within the first few paragraphs - an art which is so skilfully displayed here. Although, perhaps, not her magnum opus, The Adventures of the Christmas Pudding is a range of short stories which display her characteristic ability to align the elegant world of the rich with that of the impoverished or socially lacking. The crime in her short stories is always more easy to detect than in her longer novels, but even in these shorter versions, she dazzles us with enough red herrings to keep the reader frantically turning the pages. It must be said that although characters and situations are sometimes cliched, this is still a highly enjoyable read. Definately the kind of book to read on a cold winter's night with a large cup of hot chocolate beside you.
