Another Poriot Best,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Labours of Hercules (Poirot) (Hercule Poirot Series Book 26) (Kindle Edition)
I am a great fan of Agatha Christie and enjoyed this book immensly. Each of the short storys was intresting and had me hooked, trying to guess who had done "it".
With some short stories you can feel a lack of character develepment, but this was not a problem, Poirot is a well know character, and even if you had not heard of him before, you quickly become familiar with his egotistical, but lovable ways.
The foreword is a bit confusing. Due to a jump to the first chapter by my kindle I only read it several days later when i went back to the beginning, It can very well be skipped with out losing any sense of the story, though it is an interesting discussion on names I suppose, and has Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes mentioned too, an interesting merging of fictional "worlds".
So I would definately encourage you to read it, the storys are light and interesting and the characters are all Christies best work
