Review
I don't know why I read these things. I suppose they're fun, but this one much less so than the earlier ones in this series that I've read, mostly because it was WAY TOO LONG. I almost gave up a couple hundred pages in, but there were enough threads brewing that I thought it might be worth getting all the way through.

This one was WAY too predictable, way too slow-paced, lacking in interesting character development, and (I hope) finally enough to make me stop reading this series. Though who knows, maybe I'll look around for some other installments that have the fast pace and good, real people of some of the other books I've enjoyed more than this one.

Review
After reading a couple of long, sad reads I was looking for a nice light "beach read". I have read a few other Agatha Christie novels, and I find them to generally be a fun read. Although it was an enjoyable in the end, it got a bit tedious near the middle. Of course, it is a very short read so the middle is not very long. Poirot manages to solve a murder with no evidence. He talks to each of the five people who were present when a certain murder occurred. About half way through the book I became a bit board with hearing basically the same story over and over again. However, by the end it all came together nicely. I would say the the book was average. I wouldn't necessarily recommend it, but I don't regret reading it.
