Very good book. I have seen this movie long time ago but I didn't remember who was murderer. ( )

This is my least favourite Christie novel so far, due for the most part to the narrator whom I just couldn't warm up to. Her borderline racist comments about Poirot didn't help but really her whole personality was puzzling to me. It was interesting to explore another setting though the mystery isn't the most inspired.
