Typically enjoyable Poirot

This was a classic Poirot story with an engaging plot. I did not suspect who the murderer was until Poirot gathered everyone together to unraveled the clues. I had carefully considered the clues and accused the wrong character.

I loved that Hugh Fraser, who played Hastings in several Poirot movies, read the story. He met the demands of each character's personality.

If you could sum up Hercule Poirot's Christmas in three words, what would they be?

Exciting, suspenseful, and entertaining.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The plot kept me on the edge of my seat in that it was really difficult to guess the identity of the murderer. There were many exciting plot twists.

Which character – as performed by Hugh Fraser – was your favorite?

Fraser always does a great job with Poirot himself, his performance of the master dective is always spot on.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

At Christmas Time never take anything for granted.

Any additional comments?

A must for any Poirot fan, many unpredictable developments. This book tends to follow Christies formula less than others in the series.
