Tuppence is right. You can access it from this website too. Some neat features, however it does some like a website mostly developed to promote the new Poirot book.
I'm reading the book now - about 4 chapters in. I must say I am enjoying it and it is not bad. Is it Christie's Poirot? No, it is Hannah's version of Poirot but she has captured enough of him to be recognizable and familiar. Instead of Hastings, we have a new character but he serves the same purpose and there is that fun and familiar back and forth of Poirot seeing things in a different light and seeming to be off on his own tangent. I must say it is fun to have Poirot involved in a new mystery - I just hope it all comes out alright and rings true to the character. To those purists who are having fits, I say just keep in mind that your favorite Television characters ( Doctor Who, Jessica Fletcher, Colombo, etc.) are written by many different people and no one is up in arms - we still enjoy them. I think we are all in agreement that Agatha Christie was truly one of a kind and it's sad that she isn't here to write more novels but I don't feel that should stop us from enjoying a new take on things. Oh well, I'm off to read some more and we'll see how it goes.
That is the whole point though. She was the only one to have written books involving her characters. That made things even more special. Now that this door is opened, who knows how many authors are going to get a chance to write "a Christie". Also, Christie's name is still on the front of the book i nreally big letters, that is something that is not right.
