This is one of the most ingenious plots in the Poirot series. At the 20th installment, Agatha Christie had still managed to keep up the sparkle of the series.
Poirot, now; the little old Belgian detective is still in his supreme element. The story is one which shows Poirot's brilliancy as a detective.
His analytical mind and power of observation were the instruments that helped to uncover the mystery behind the murder and apprehend the criminal.
This is one story that took me completely by surpr This is one of the most ingenious plots in the Poirot series. This is one story that took me completely by surprise.
The culprit was not even in my "suspicious" list. I was in awe when the final revelation was made by Poirot in a rather a grand manner.
It was amazing. Christie really got me there. This particular installment reminded me of the early ones in the series.
Although some middle installments failed to live up to the earlier set standard, with this novel, Agatha Christie shows us readers that the queen of mystery is still full of brilliant ideas.
I really enjoyed this read. It is surely one of the best of Agatha Christie. I wouldn't have expected less from the Queen of Crime.
Enjoyable holiday read from the formidable Agatha Christie. A locked room murder The millionaire of the Lee's family is found killed during the holidays.
All his family is over, along with a few unexpected last minute guests. Or maybe the butler did it. This particular work, the December read for the English Mysteries Club group, was probably not the best novel for me to choose as a way of going back to Agatha Christie.
She must have written much, much better books. And is her exposition-through-dialogue generally as lame and heavy-handed as it is here?
That said, the novel is not completely devoid of charm. Poirot, not being the average reader, manages to solve the mystery within nano-seconds and then reveals all in the traditional manner, when the suspects are gathered in the drawing room.
It also made me want to get back to reading Dorothy L. It was good to have my friend Jemidar to read this with and to complain to about it.
Dec 11, Stephanie Anze rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites , fiction. The patriarch, Simeon Lee, has summoned all four of his sons Albert, George, David and Harry along with their respective spouses along with Pilar, his granddaughter from his now defunct daughter Jennifer.
Rather than have an amicable get-toge "There is at Christmas time a great deal of hypocrisy, honourable hypocrisy, hypocrisy undertaken pour le bon motif, c'est entendu, but nevertheless hypocrisy.
Rather than have an amicable get-together, there is tension in the air as the grudges between this family slowly come to light. Matters worsen when Simeon Lee is murdered in his room and being of a highly questionable moral character, there is no lack of suspects.
I wanted to read a book that was set on Christmas and while this is not a warm and fuzzy read, I very much enjoyed it.
When Simeon Lee is murdered on Christmas Eve, the blame immediately falls on his family and staff.
While the Lees may have come together for Christmas, they are not close at all. Each son and their spouse has a strong reason to dislike Simeon, a motive for which they could have killed him.
Then there is Pilar, she might be family but she is also a stranger. The staff, having worked in the house for a long time, know Simeon in a rather personal way.
Simeon Lee was no saint. In his personal and professional life, he made very questionable calls and decisions and stiil did shortly before his death.
He was ruthless in business as well as with his family. In short, he was not nice. His murder may not be all that surprising but the murderer sure is.
This time around, I was at least able to eliminate suspects but did not correctly identify the killer. Miss Agatha Christie took me for quite a ride.
She places these small details that seem unimportant and they end up being the case breaker. I just love her and look forward to reading more of Poirot soon.
This book, in particular, I loved. Nov 07, Wanda rated it really liked it Shelves: christmas , brit-lit , mysteries-thrillers , female-authors , read-in , public-library.
What does one get M. Poirot for Christmas? An excellent red herring meant I was looking the wrong direction when M. Poirot did his big reveal.
Christie — 7, Wanda — 2 so far in my reading of her oeuvre. The murder victim is deli What does one get M. The murder victim is deliciously hate-able, the potential murderers are suitably complex people, the motives abound, as does the blood.
First Sentence: Stephen pulled up the collar of his coat as he walked briskly along the platform.
Elderly, wealthy Simon Lee has gathered his family around him for a Christmas reunion. Hardly a joyous celebration when the guests hear furniture being overturned, an inhuman scream and find Simon murdered in his locked room.
Visiting a friend in the area, Hercule Poirot offers to assist in solving this case where everyone had reason to wish the old man dead.
Reading Christie is always a delight. Ther First Sentence: Stephen pulled up the collar of his coat as he walked briskly along the platform.
Her strong descriptions of that time and the related social mores make fascinating reading. Her sense of place is equally strong.
I find it interesting that she, as did many English authors of that time and later, assumed her audience had a classical education as evidence by her use of non-translated French phrases and Shakespearean quotations.
It is her plotting and use of characters I most enjoy. She sets her story up by introducing each of her very distinctive characters assuring the reader knows who they are and how they relate in the story.
I greatly appreciate that Ms. I am afraid—for you! There are several very clever twists to the plot and the classic revelation at the end.
For me, she is a reliable, enjoyable reread. A millionaire father gathers his 4 sons and their wives home for a Christmas family gathering.
They are a very broken family and most of siblings have not spoken to each other or their father for years, due to the father's abusive personality.
The father suddenly announced to his children that he is changing his will, and hours later the father is mysteriously murdered.
Hercule Poirot helps solve the mystery. All 4 sons and their spouses each had motive. I have read Murder on the Orient Expres A millionaire father gathers his 4 sons and their wives home for a Christmas family gathering.
This novel is truly what a mystery should be. I love to try to guess who done it, but I was was completely unable to guess accurately and I was just stunned when the murderer was revealed.
So now I can appreciate fully the whoopla of Agatha Christie, and will definitely be reading more of her novels.
I am so glad I read this and was so entertained and felt so fully satisfied and happy to have read this. Truly a mystery masterpiece!
Dec 03, Veronique rated it really liked it Shelves: r , stars , mystery , classics. Old Simeon Lee invites all his relatives to stay with him in order to manipulate them for his own amusement, especially through his money, which he holds the strings.
However things don't go according to plan when the cripple is found dead. O "There is at Christmas time a great deal of hypocrisy, honourable hypocrisy, hypocrisy undertaken pour le bon motif, c'est entendu, but nevertheless hypocrisy!
Of course, all present could have done it. This is Christie after all :0 I really enjoyed this novel, the nasty characters, their antics, and of course our favourite Belgian investigator, Hercule Poirot himself.
I did get some of the clues correctly and yet didn't follow through for the end, silly me. Nevertheless, great crime classic.
Dec 12, Bill Lynas rated it really liked it. When the way the murder was committed is explained it seems a bit over elaborate for my taste.
Yet despite these criticisms it's yet another entertaining read from Christie. Happy Christmas, mon amie. As always AC is a great storyteller.
Dec 23, F. But because Christie makes these same mistakes again and again, they become part of her world.
The reader enters a strange fantasy land, where no locale is anything more than vague, characters are little better than ill-developed stock types and everyone speaks in the most artificial manner ever put into print.
And because Dame Agatha never corrects these mistakes, she manages to create her own world where all of this makes sense and is — because it is so consistent — actually convincing.
Dame Agatha has decided that this is the best way to get vital plot points over to her reader, and as such we have character after character explaining things they each already know to each other, in a way which would raise eyebrows in the real world.
And although the reader might sneer the first time he or she is confronted with these odd marital scenes, the fact that they happen again and again means that they just end up going along with it.
The reader has left the real world and gone to Christie-land, where these types of conversation take place and a murder will happen soon to distract us from the thinness of the characters.
The story is thus: a cruel old millionaire invites his family to join him at Christmas, threatens to change his will and is promptly bumped off.
Luckily Hercule Poirot is on hand to investigate. One has to admire the mechanics of it all, and the way in which Dame Agatha — for all her other flaws — manages to keep the central guessing game going right until the end.
My husband's grandmother had a fondness for Christie. Though I never met her I was given a Christie book of hers to read and like her I loved reading her books which then I actively looked for the paperback edition to read.
Many things I might have not looked up in the past or just assumed what she meant were no longer guesses on my part. Hercule Poirot's Christmas was written in which I find interesting in the sense that England had not entered World War 2 until One female character, Pilar escapes death coming to visit relatives in England.
Hercule Poirot while visiting Chief Constable of Middleshire becomes involved with a murder during Christmastime. Albert, George, and David Lee are present with their wives.
I will not give anything away where you are not surprised as I was if you read this suspenseful novel. Dec 19, Holly rated it it was amazing Shelves: Agatha Christie is a flippin' genius.
Jan 02, Peter Monn rated it it was amazing. Soooooo good. A real mystery. Readers also enjoyed. About Agatha Christie.

Photos Add Image. Nur Pilar geht leer aus. Lydia schlägt vor, ihr etwas zu überschreiben, da ihre Mutter ja eigentlich geerbt hätte.
Wie sich herausstellt, war Pilar zur Mordzeit nicht auf ihrem Zimmer, sondern versteckte sich in einer Nische zwischen Statuen, von wo aus sie eine Frau vor dem Mordzimmer stehen sah.
George telefonierte zwar, aber nur etwa fünf Minuten und durchsuchte danach Alfreds Schreibtisch. Magdalene versteckte sich in der Besenkammer, weil sie Angst hatte, man würde sie an der Treppe sehen und denken, sie hätte den Mord begangen.
Am Tag bemerkt Tressilian plötzlich, dass eine Zierkanonenkugel aus dem Garten verschwunden ist. Die Diamanten fanden sich bereits in dem von Lydia angelegten Steingarten.
Stephen und Pilar scheinen sich ineinander zu verlieben. Sie waren sich auch schon vor Weihnachten in einem Zug begegnet.
Als die beiden mit Ballons spielen, von denen einer an einer Stechpalme zerplatzt, sagt Pilar beiläufig, sie habe so etwas Ähnliches in Simeons Zimmer gefunden.
Wenig später wird sie fast von der Kanonenkugel, die man oberhalb ihrer Zimmertür anbrachte, erschlagen.
Am Er merkte jedoch bald, dass er sich täuschte. Pilar ist dagegen nicht Lees Enkelin, sondern nur eine Freundin der echten Pilar, die im Spanischen Bürgerkrieg starb.
Simeon hatte ihn nie gerufen. Sugden brachte seinen Vater bereits bei seinem ersten Besuch im Haus um.
Pech für ihn, dass Pilar den geplatzten Ballon fand, weswegen er versuchte sie zu töten, und dass Tressilian die Ähnlichkeit zwischen Stephen, Harry und ihm auffiel.
Colonel Johnson ist einmal mehr verblüfft, wie Poirot diesen Fall gelöst hat. Der Fall, den Poirot zuvor in derselben Grafschaft löste und der gelegentlich erwähnt wird, ist Nikotin.
