This one was very promising to start but kind of fell flat and felt formulaic as it progressed. Poirot's reactions and methods are feeling a little predictable lately. And "Edgware" sounds like a line of hipster food storage containers to me. ( )

I couldn't believe my level of genius. Halfway through, I actually knew, with an unsettling certainty, who the murderer was. I had a theory as to the sequence of events. And then I realized that I was predicting events in the plot and the mystery was solved (not Christie's, mine). I had read the book before -- a long, looooong time ago. So. Good book? Yes. Am I a bit slow? Yep. ( )

Classic twist, fun listen. ( )

I had suspicions but still didn't figure this one out. Maybe next time ( )

Once again, Christie left me guessing until the last page, and as per usual, my guesses were no where close to the actual ending. I sometimes think that I love reading Christie because I know that I will be wrong in my "deductions." Certainly, I do not use my little grey cells in a way that would make Hercule Poirot proud. Everything I had thought I knew about the plot, every little fact in the case had been turned on it's ear, and I approve. ( )
