The first Agatha Christie I've read, aside from The Mousetrap, which I acted in in 10th grade. (I played the victim, which means I got to be a real bitch before getting strangled at the end of Act I. It was awesome.) This was a lot of fun—I realize I like the methodical clarity of the type of detective story where the inspector interviews all the suspects, and carefully pursues each new piece of evidence. There were also some very fun secondary characters in this, though man, was I surprised at the emphasis placed on various people from various nationalities hating each other. (There were reasons behind some of this, but honestly, a lot of it was just, "Jeeze, those fucking Italians!") I'm also puzzled by the common "well, I know you did it, but I am going to let you get away with it/not punish you in the traditional manner" wrap up of so many mystery stories. This happens often in the works of Arthur Conan Doyle and Dorothy L. Sayers...does no one ever get arrested? Y'all are conspiring to put ordinary policemen out of business, aren't you? But, tangents aside: this proved a very fun way to spend a couple hours; I'm looking forward to reading more.
My favorite: the Unrequited Hug :)
