This is a review of the book.
It is folly to try to compare a book to a tv series as some do. TV producers take great liberties when filming a book.
This is of course Poirot's last case.
I think it a clever twist to end the siries at the place it started , Styles House.
Featuring Captain Hastings, this tale is more about Hastings than Poirot I think.
The plot is contrived but so are most detective/mystery novels.
It is always difficult for an author to conclude a series, many fail but I think in this case Agatha Christie just about pulled it off.

Really enjoyed Poirot's final case, although I have read it before some years ago. Hugh Fraser reads all the Poirot novels very well, and, In fact, nobody reads them better.

I wanted to compare the book with the recent TV adaptation which I found disappointing. Ingenious plot a fitting end to the Poirot series. The Kindle version has an excellent section at the end with summaries of all the Poirot cases. Very useful and, armed with this, I might well (re-)read others in the series.

I have been putting off reading this book for years. Monsieur Poirot and his leetle grey cells have been entertaining me since I was a teenager, both in book and on TV. After a shaky start, David Suchet has been superb at playing the strange little Belgian detective. But now he's done as they have filmed and broadcast Curtain. I have had it sitting on my Sky Plus hard-drive for months, taking up space. It's time to watch it, but I had to make myself read the book first. So I have and I'm giving it 5 stars, not for the quality of the story (it was good, though not great like, say, The Murder of Roger Ackroyd) but to recognise the sheer reading pleasure the Poirot books have provided me for over more than thirty years.

Au revoir, Herecule - I'll miss you.

What an amazing last book of my favourite ever detective! This is a little different than your usual Poirot story but at the same time the cleverness of Poirot is ever-present in it. A must read for any who is a fan of Agatha Christie and Poirot!!

This is a wonderful tale, full of twists and turns and is a fitting end for one of the world's greatest literary detectives.
I think Agatha Christie is a master of the mystery novel and always enjoy her work. Whilst there is a certain poignancy that this is Poirot's last story, Christie does him proud with a tale that will have you gripped to the last page.

I saw the this as the last ever episode of Poirot on TV and had to get the book. Not disappointed; an excellent read even though I knew the outcome.
