The book as usual was excellent, as all Christie books are. It is a five in one collection and well worth the price.

The book as usual was excellent, as all Christie books are. the five stories are as follows: 1. murder on the Orient Express: a story where Poirot travels on the famous Orient Express (incidentally a train Christie herself took) and solves a most baffling crime where a man is found murdered, with nearly 12 stab wounds. No one on the train seems to be a suspect since each of their alibis are given by others, totally unconnected with them in any way.

I read Agatha Christie when I was in high school and thoroughly enjoyed the mysteries...mainly because of the well set up murders, the manipulation of evidence and the fun of Hercule Poirot's persnicketiness. Upon rereading these five books -- "Murder on the Orient Express", "Thirteen at Dinner", "Cards on the Table", "Death on the Nile" and "The ABC Murders", I found her dry, minimalist style of writing to be distracting, her form of grammar to occasionally be confusing, and the plotting so basic as to be perfectly suited for a high-school kid just getting into mysteries.

As someone once told me, "You don't read Agatha Christie for the writing, you read it for the mystery." They were right.

This was a used hardcover copy, but it arrived in almost perfect condition. The book as usual was excellent, as all Christie books are. It is a five in one collection and well worth the price. the five stories are as follows:

1. murder on the Orient Express: a story where Poirot travels on the famous Orient Express (incidentally a train Christie herself took) and solves a most baffling crime where a man is found murdered, with nearly 12 stab wounds. No one on the train seems to be a suspect since each of their alibis are given by others, totally unconnected with them in any way. It is upto the genius of Poirot to solve this crime.

2. Thirteen at Dinner: Lady Edgeware approaches Poirot and asks him to get her husband to divorce her so she can marry again. otherwise, I will have to go around and kill him myself she says. Very soon, Lord Edgware is found dead, but Lady edgeware has a perfect alibi - she was at a dinner party. Poirot as usual applies his "little gray cells" to unravel the crime and bring the murderer to justice.

3. The ABC Murders: It seems that victims are chosen randomly, according to a railway guide, and alphabetically, with nothing to connect them. Hercule Poirot can be the only one to see the connection and unravel a most ruthless crime.

4. Cards on the Table: Poirot thinks that Shaitana is playing a dangerous game when he shows poirot his "collection" of criminals. It may be dangerous warns poirot, but Mr Shaitana, always cocksure of himself,gets murdered. It is upto poirot to find out who, out of the four supposed "criminals who got away" is responsible for Mr Shaitana's death.

5. Linnet Doyle seems to have everything. But She still seems upset and scared and unhappy. Then she is murdered. IS it her husband, her lawyer, the thwarted girlfriend of her husband? it remains for Poirot to find out.

Not produced by original Christie publishers like Dodd, Mead & Co., whose 1930's books are still in circulation today. This is a 1980 compilation by Avenil printed on cheap yellowing paper bound with cardboard covered by the thinnest venir of plastic. Pages are glued to the spine, so the thread at the top and bottom is faux stitching with no functional value.

A classic I never read as a student, but honestly, you can't put it down. Well you can, work kids etc, but you'd rather not. If you want to learn to write a murder mystery, start hear by reading and leaning. It all there.

I am torn because I did not receive the book pictured, which did disappoint me. I did receive an Agatha Christie book though, and have nothing but nice things to say about Agatha Christie's books. It's just not the one I thought I was buying. So I split the difference for the rating. One star for accuracy of product description and photo.

The copy I ordered was supposed to have a dust jacket but arrived without one.
As to the book itself, Agatha Christie is always excellent. My only peeve is that she has Poirot dropping into his native French at inopportune times and it disrupts the flow of the story. From that standpoint I prefer the Miss Marple series. Other than that, she is among the masters at mystery.

It never fails to surprise me how well Agatha Christie's story hold up. Fashions change, but human nature (Ms Christie's stock in trade) remains the same.
can`t ever go wrong with Agatha Christie , she was and still is the best!!
