    I like this book but It is not as good as ABC, McGinty and Folly, I like Spence and Elspeth who were left out of the Adaptation which wasn't brilliant, Anyway The Book is OK.

    Am I the only person finding the book of the month difficult? No wonder there is so little input, I struggle to find it every time. Looking forward to reading Halloween Party, as I've not read it before.

    The book strats off very strong but the ending is overly dramatic and a little romantic for a good mystery read. Poirot is a romantic character but it would have been better for the story to end within the village. Not in league with Murder in Mesopotamia, Murder on Orient Express, The Other Girl, The A.B.C. Murders, etc.

    We shall not hunt together again, my friend. Our first hunt was here — and our last ... They were good days. Yes, they have been good days...

    I agree, It could have been better but all in all a good book.

    It's a very good book and very unusual. The plot has a different type of victims and the motive is not very common in AC's books. The whole story is very odd (in a good way) and that's why it catches the attention and it's so good.
    Also, it's very interesting the references about others stories (Cat Among the Pigeons, Mrs McGinty's dead) and about a greek tragedy.
    I'm very fond of this book and I think it's one of the best Ariadne/ Poirot books.
    Besides, the tv adaption is very well done.
    Certainly, it's a book to read and a film to watch.
