Cheryl Lyda presents Agatha Christie's Wit & Wisdom: Past, Present, Future posted at Agatha Christie's Wit & Wisdom, saying, "As we make our New Year's resolutions, let's remember what Hercule Poirot had to say about putting things off until tomorrow:
“Tomorrow! Sometimes, M. Poirot, tomorrow is a long way off.”
“On the contrary,” said Poirot, “I always find that it succeeds today with monotonous regularity.”
This and over 300 other quotes from Christie's books may be found at Agatha Christie's Wit & Wisdom."

Clarissa Draper presents Why Didn't They Ask Evans? (Boomerang Clue) posted at Clarissa's Agatha Christie Page, saying, "what made me love this book was not the mystery as much as the chemistry between the two MCs"

Hercule Poirot

BooksPlease presents Death in the Clouds by Agatha Christie posted at BooksPlease, saying, "This is a kind of locked room mystery, only the ‘locked room’ is a plane on a flight from Paris to Croydon, in which Hercule Poirot is one of the passengers. A most enjoyable mystery."

ng kai-lee presents Poirot series, Part four posted at -Zhen's Summer Cafe-, saying, "A review of the movie adaptation of Five Little Pigs. Greatly recommended!"

Sarah Ahmad presents Cat Among the Pigeons posted at The Book Nook. "One of my favorite Agatha Christie novels, Cat Among the Pigeons has a lot of great characters. "

Marie presents The Murder of Roger Ackroyd: A Hercule Poirot Mystery posted at I ♥ reading. "I really enjoyed this novel but couldn't help shaking my head at a couple oddities. "

BooksPlease presents The Clocks by Agatha Christie: My Thoughts posted at BooksPlease, saying, "Hercule Poirot plays a minor role in this mystery. an intriguing puzzle."

Miss Marple

Rishi Arora presents The Moving Finger by Agatha Christie posted at Classic Mystery Hunt, saying, "The mystery when you read the book looks prosaic but trust me you are not smarter then Christie, she knows how we think and puts us in that direction and then comes up with a complete diametrically opposite solution. This book is a case study of how to write a perfect cozy murder mystery. In one year Miss Marple books have gone from my least favorite to my most awaited books that I want to read."

Superintendent Battle

KerrieS presents Review: TOWARDS ZERO, Agatha Christie posted at MYSTERIES in PARADISE, saying, "This is Battle's last appearance in a novel. Why did Agatha Christie discard him?"


KerrieS presents MYSTERIES in PARADISE: Agatha Christie Novels read posted at MYSTERIES in PARADISE, saying, "progressing well. Now at 34 novels and 13 short story collections."

That concludes this edition.
