4.0 out of 5 stars All I Am Saying Is Give This A Chance!, 10 April 2007
This review is from: Third Girl (Poirot) (Paperback)
Poor old 'Third Girl'! One of those tag-end Christies that nobody particularly likes, nobody can remember, never makes it onto anybody's 'favourites' list but not bad enough to prop up the table either, so forgettable that nobody can even be bothered to review it on Amazon! Well let me rescue this little book from the oblivion of the unloved and unwanted. I actually think it's pretty good! Certainly for this late stage of Christie's career when she was usually more miss than hit, and it's way better than the 3 titles which directly precede it chronologically. A young woman visits Poirot to voice her fear that she "might" have committed a murder....and we're off into a, for the most part, cleverly plotted and intriguing case, even if there are a few details which don't bear too close an inspection. Interesting also is how plain Christie makes her views on 60s youth. This hardly bears comparison with many of the great titles of the 30s and 40s, but taken on its own merits it provides a very decent read. As long as you don't come to this expecting another 'Death On The Nile', I bet you'll be pleasantly surprised.
