Adi's Journal

Pieces of my thourhgs

One of the finest Poirot story by Agatha

No wonder Agatha Christie is called the queen of mysteries. Even though my earlier book from this series didn’t meet the expectations swt by Agatha’s earlier work, Cards on the Table has lived upto the mark. Infact, i would go a step further and say this is by far the best Poirot story I have read.

The way story plot is woven to make it a thick fabric with finer design with plot twists and unexpected turns, it has taken the book to the new height.

I don’t think I am worthy of commenting the narration of Hugh Fraser. I am his fan and have skipped picking up any other audio-book of Poirot series if it’s not narrated by Mr. Hugh.


Mr Shaitana was famous as a flamboyant party host. Nevertheless, he was a man of whom everybody was a little afraid. So, when he boasted to Poirot that he considered murder an art form, the detective had some reservations about accepting a party invitation to view Shaitana’s private collection.
