I'm glad that there's still another Christie's book that I haven't read. But even if I have read her entire works, I would re-read them over and over again without hesitation. I confess that I have never been able to guess correctly the identity of the murderer in every book. Isn't that pathetic? Poirot would say that I just didn't use my grey cells correctly. Until today, I still think that I prefer Poirot to Holmes and this number one and number two best detective list remains that way for years. I intend to read Holmes in the near future and let's see if my list should change.
In the meantime, let me tell you that I love this book just like Christie's every other books. I keep trying to open my mind to hypothesis and possibilities and clues but there you go I'm hopeless. Again, Christie is best in writing crimes of passion, of emotion, the evil inner working of a human mind and how the phrase "one never knows the depth of another's heart" worked so true in her works. This book is another example of Christie's superb ability in creating different personalities that are both intriguing and baffling. Because in the end, the clue to the murderer is there in the complex web of personalities. If you can find the person with the right reason to kill, considering his/her personality, then you'll be able to solve it. Bu it turns out to be very difficult. The ending is a good surprise as always. A great mystery.
