4.0 out of 5 stars Poirot takes to the air!, 4 Nov 2008
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Death in the Clouds (Poirot) (Hardcover)
In its time, I expect the thought of Poirot flying in the air liner Prometheus (albeit to Croydon) was quite exotic. It certainly makes a change from country houses, though the plot does turn to the odd country house later on.
It's not too difficult to guess what didn't happen in this mystery, but not that easy to guess what actually did happen. Having said that, I wasn't too surprised to find out who did it.
Not that this really matters in one of Agatha Christie's novels. The point is that it's an entertaining read, with a few good characters including inspector Japp, and Poirot doing his stuff.
The book loses its way a little in the middle when we go on a visit with the various suspects and witness some pretty vacuous 'romance' writing.
On the whole though, it's up to the usual standard, has a couple of trips to Paris thrown in, and a court scene.
These facsimile editions are just what they say: perfect copies of the originals. So perfect that they have to have an extra dust jacket with the barcode and 2008 price. They are very nicely done, though by no means 'luxury' versions. I like them because they're a great size to hold and look good on the shelf if you buy a few.
