Entertaining audio-book by the two narrators.Like radio theatre. The stories themselves are all incredibly complicated but solved usually quite simply by Mr. Poirot. Someone whose two steps ahead of everyone else. ( )

1974; a nice collection of some now very familar stories (from TV) mixed with several that were previously very difficult to find, having been published in book form either only in the UK or in the US but not both. All were previously published in magazines (from 1923 through 1936) and most of the stories were filmed early in the series with David Suchet as Poirot. Contains:

The Affair of the Victory Ball
€ harlequinade and murder; a bit better than filmed version although that was very good
The King of Clubs
â€" a dancer gets blackmailed and does something about it ( )

I'm trying to read all of Christie's writings, and I was disappointed with this. I thought I would love it, but I had already read all but two of the short stories. Of course, I love reading anything with Poirot and Hastings, but I was hoping for fresh material. ( )

Collection of short stories, most of which have been published before in other collections, although there were a couple that I didn't remember. As I've been reading Christie's crime stories in publication order, it was nice to see Hastings again. ( )

Captain Hastings recounts 18 of Poirot's early cases from the days before he was famous! Hercule Poirot delighted in telling people that he was probably the best detective in the world. So turning back the clock to trace eighteen of the cases which helped establish his professional reputation was always going to be a fascinating experience. With his career still in its formative years, the panache with which Hercule Poirot could solve even the most puzzling mystery is obvious. Chronicled by his friend Captain Hastings, these eighteen early cases - from theft and robbery to kidnapping and murder - were all guaranteed to test Poirot's soon-to-be-famous 'little grey cells' to their absolute limit.
