I agree, definitely a fitting farewell, especially in comparision to Poirot's Miss Marple gets to spend the money on her little luxuries (ie, a box of marrons glaces and a whole partridge to herself). And she deserves it! Most definitely a fitting end!taliavishay-arbel said:
I think Agatha Christie meant it to be the last Miss Marple book. The ending is very upbeat, and leaves Miss Marple with renewed spirits and energy, meaning to spend her legacy to enjoy herself - A fitting farewell.
Tell us your opinion of the book when you're finished.ianthepoet said:I'm reading The Mirror Crack'd from Side to Side, my first Miss Marple.
They may not be popular in the eyes of many Christie fans but I respect your opinion. Speaking of The Hollow, it's one of my favorite Poirot books as well. Poirot visits the country and we get funny comments from him such as a dislike of trees because they have a habit of dropping their leaves. The novel has deep characterization that is beautifully written throughout and we have a good mystery to boot. How can anyone not like it? The Hollow is not your typical Poirot and that's probably why many don't take a liking to it.taliavishay-arbel said:Right now my favourite book Poirot book is "The Hollow". My favourite Movie is the old "Evil under the sun" and my favourite actor who played Poirot is Albert Finney. I'm sure these selections won't be very popular.
