Hercule Poirot's Christmas

A Hercule Poirot Mystery

Average Rating:
Rate this:

At last, a single volume that gathers together all of the short stories featuring Agatha Christie's most famous creation, Hercule Poirot. The dapper, mustache-twirling little Belgian with the egg-shaped head and curious mannerisms has solved some of the most puzzling crimes of the century--and, in his own humble opinion, is "probably the greatest detective in the world."

In this complete collection of more than 50 stories, ranging from short tales to novellas, Poirot faces violent murders, poisonings, kidnappings, and thefts--all solved with his characteristic panache. Only Agatha Christie could have devised cases worthy of Hercule Poirot's skill and "little gray cells."

Not the best, but it's good.

At the end I was like, "Whoa! How did he figure that out!". Extremely ingenious bravo to the famous Poirot!

Ingenious! The first time I read this mystery I was completely blindsided by the killer's identity. I recently read it for the second time and saw that, as usual, the clues had been there all along, I had simply overlooked them . . . This one goes in the category of Christie mysteries that are my favorites because I was so shocked by the ending, along with "4:50 from Paddington" and "The Murder on the Links". It's also a really interesting story.

"Hercule Poirot's Christmas" is a fairly interesting mystery with some clever twists and a good plot. However, Poirot lacks the humour and great lines that he had in prior stories, and the story ends too suddenly. Still, the reveal of the killer was surprising and the book is overall decent.

Another brilliant whodunnit from the queen of murder mysteries. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anybody who is looking for a relatively quick read.

Every second or third year I re-read this Christmas mystery and always enjoy the twisted plot.

Great mystery! I never guessed who the murderer was!

I've read quite a few Agatha Christie's, and I find that sometimes they can be very slow, particularly at the beginning. This one, however, was interesting right from the very first chapter, and kept me interested until the very last chapter! I couldn't put it down.
