4.0 out of 5 stars If You Are Looking For Something Different......, 11 Sept. 2007
This review is from: The Big Four (Poirot) (Paperback)
The Big Four is one of Agatha Christies very unusual books, it is a great one and if you have read a lot of her regular books, then you should definitely read this because it is completely different from anything else that she has ever written. I found it difficult to put down because it is very intriguing.

The book is about a group called the Big Four, and they are trying to gain world domination ( it's a bit far-fetched but it doesn't really seem too unlikely when you are reading it ). In the group, there is a Chinaman, an American Millionaire, a Frenchwoman scientist, and a man, known as the Destroyer. A lot of murders occur and as a result of Poirot and Hastings investigation, the group are desperate to kill them both. It involves a lot of action scenes aswell, with Poirot and Hastings in near death experiences.

There are very few clues in the book because Poirot is trying to discover the Big Fours methods and he is trying to show very few of his own, along the way. There are however questions like, how some of the complicated murders are done? Who number four is? What is the significance of Poirots twin brother, to the case? etc.

I highly reccomend this book but it might not appeal to some people. If you are looking for some good Agatha Christie books, read, And Then There Were None, Crooked House, Murder On The Orient Express, Death On The Nile, A Pocket Full Of Rye and A Murder Is Announced, and many more.
