I was in the midst of a crime-ficion reading spree, but wanted to break the monotony. I thought a short children’s fiction would be just the change I needed. I’ve heard of Dr. Seuss’ books, but never read them before.
When a book is made into a movie, it gets a bit more noticed on the bookshelves too. I’ve heard of a few books only after seeing the movie. When the movie based on this book came out a couple of months back, I decided that this book has to be read. I only got around to reading it now.
When it comes to crime fiction, one author I turn to without doubt is Dame Agatha Christie. The queen of crime is one of my favorite authors, and I’ve loved reading many of her books. I chose to read this as part of a reading challenge I’m taking part this year. The challenge asked me to read a book with the word “house” in the title, and for some reason, this is the first book that came to mind.
I am a big fan of the author Agatha Christie, and without a doubt, I consider her to be one of the best authors in the genre of crime fiction. From the many sleuths she has created, I admire Hercule Poirot, and his character. This book was a play, initially, and it was adapted into a novel by Charles Osborne. As such, this is the first Hercule Poirot novel that’s not written by Christie that I am reading.
I think every bookworm who loves crime fiction would have a favorite fictional detective. One of my favorites is Hercule Poirot. I think the works featuring him are some of Agatha Christie’s best. But Christie also has given the world some other wonderful detectives. Miss Jane Marple is another. This book is the first Miss Marple mystery.
There are a few go-to authors for me whose works I can pick up at a moment’s notice and expect that it’ll be quality. Agatha Christie is one such author. I’ve read many of her books. This is the first book in the Hercule Poirot series.
