After reading John Curran'a book Agatha Christie's secret notebooks, I decided to re-visit Hercule Poirot. So far I have read 30 and the third girl ranks amoung the top 25. Red herrings, mystery,a story line that keeps you guessing and of course Hercule with his friend Mrs Oliver, (she is Agatha Christie's ulta ego). You know the one that was found after Christie died. But this one is good because it brings back the apple-eating mystery writer.

Definitely one of the weakest Poirot novels. It reads to me like a very elderly lady, which Christie was, trying to understand the swinging 60's London scene through her characters and getting it all wrong. Kind of sad and depressing to be honest. Skip it and go for the earlier Poirot novels.

I have read this mystery innumerable times and still enjoy it. As a writer and a reader, I am always entranced by the narrative flow that AC managed to sustain in her books. The writing carries the reader along until you realize you've been standing at the kitchen counter for 45 minutes reading just another few pages. You think, this could never happen, but you just keep reading. The milieux and plots, while certainly not early 21 century, are by no means as dated as some of the other writers from the golden age of mystery. I think of Miss Silver--and I enjoy those books immensely--but the mores and romantic attachments are dated. AC seems to have lifted her writing to a slightly higher, more timesless place.

Another Agatha Christie's masterpiece. The unforgettable and unsinkable Ariadne Olivier figures as a very important character, bringing much spark to the plot. Hercule Poirot, as always, is outstanding.

A highly recommendable classic.

Back in the day, many years ago, reading an Agatha Christie was must reading. After reading John Curran'a book Agatha Christie's secret notebooks, I decided to re-visit Hercule Poirot. So far I have read 30 and the third girl ranks amoung the top 25. Red herrings, mystery,a story line that keeps you guessing and of course Hercule with his friend Mrs Oliver, (she is Agatha Christie's ulta ego). A missing girl, who claims she shot someone, or so she thinks, and her friends think nothing about not seeing her for days, including her family. When Agatha wrote this book it was in the '30's, and still today it is timeless. Did she kill someone, is she really missing, and why did she think Hercule was to old to help her?

Maybe I am stupid about these things but I was wrong about the killer to the last few pages. No Poirot, me. It was an enjoyable read and I particular like the Poirot books where Ariadne plays a major or at least synergistic role.

I only wish there were more Hercule Poirot books because I think I've read them all. Oh, except for the "last one." I haven't read that yet. Saving it for special occasion. You know the one that was found after Christie died. The Third Girl certainly isn't her best - but what could compete with Orient Express or one of my own favorites - Murder in the Clouds.

But this one is good because it brings back the apple-eating mystery writer. I always see her as a good way for Christie to voice her own opinions on the writing process.

A different rythem to this Agatha Christie/Hercule Poirot Mystery. Very interesting story and I really enjoyed it but there were sections were Poirot is musing about the case in his mind that seem to go on forever. Still I enjoyed the book and I'm glad I bought it but it is a slower read than usual for Chrisite.
It's not one of her VERY best but it has long been one of my personal favorites because Mrs. Oliver is Poirot's "Hastings," & their combination is fascinating. If you want to find out about "Mod England" of the 1960's, there's a lot here about that too. Of course, there's the usual convoluted plot and interesting characters. And it was WONDERFUL to read big print & not strain to enjoy a novel!! Betty Willard.
