Meet Hercule Poirot. This is the story that introduces Christie's most represented character. Poirot is certainly one of the most preferred of her characters and Christie returns to to him a lot of times over. This mystery occurs in a slower part of the countryside, where the latest Amazing Battle is still felt. We also meet Captain Hastings here, recuperating from wounds received is the war, visiting with the family of an old friend. His mate lives with his wife in the home of his mother, her recently acquired much younger, and rather poorly liked, husband, a brother and other assorted guests of the family. Once the tensions in the household become more pronounced, it should come as no surprise that murder follows. While everyone seems stunned, most have their own suspicions about who "done it."From the village nearby appears the Belgian wonder, Poirot, and what happens next is what you might expect. Hastings seems sure he can solve this case easily, and it's amazing fun to see the small man with the "gray cells" present him that there is more than meets the eye. It's no wonder that Agatha came back so a lot of times to use Poirot is so a lot of stories.
Agatha Christie's first Poirot novel, "The Mysterious Affair at Styles" is the first of her books that I've read. And, an perfect book it is. Unbelievable writing, descriptions, characters, and plot. Lots of small twists and turns. An Perfect 5 stars out of te: the particular Kindle ver that I got here at Amazon back in April of 2012 has no illustrations. There are several locations in the book where Poirot is showing people pieces of paper that we're supposed to see. And we don't. It looks like there have been oodles of fresh versions here, so maybe that's been fixed by now (though my ver was free and the others here are not).
I have nothing poor to say about any of Agatha Christie's books, but this formatting of it is just awful. The page size is huge, so it's not comfortable to lie in bed and read and the font, color, etc just doesn't have that feeling that you obtain from any other book.
I really enjoyed reading the first Poirot book! I've read the short story collection and a few others, but now I'm starting at the beginning. 4 stars for the kindle ver I purchased on amazon because it didn't contain any of the illustrations.
Christie does have a few diagrams in this book and they do not appear here. On the other hand, this Kindle book is free and a amazing pleasure to search at 12 midnight yesterday! It would be nice if someone did some diagrams of Christie's mysteries. The American editors added the hero lists with descriptions, which was not done in the British versions, and they were a amazing help. Just a few thoughts. I gave this a 5 because it surely deserves it and Agatha is so underrated in the professional critical globe as a lot of best selling authors are. As one apt reviewer said, have a cup of coffee (and I would add, or an adult beverage) and enjoy. A hint of the hat to Amazon for providing this free Kindle. Thank you from all of us.
How long has it been since you treated yourself to an Agatha Christie? I finished this fast read, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, which is a fun 'fix' for what might be ailing you. Hastings and Poirot are at it again solving a locked door mystery...or was the door really locked? I love this genre of Classic Mysteries, and this one can be added to a reading list for any mystery writing class. This is how it is done!
Another one I could not figure out! How does she do it? Agatha Christie was a phenomenal writer. I'm not stopping until I have read everything she wrote! Loved the method this one was packaged. Simple to obtain the CDs in and out. This is the book that launched Hercule Poirot. Go along as he tries to solve the murder od Mrs. Iglethorp. Was it one of the Cavendish brothers or the fresh husband?
Here is the introductory novel for Hercule Poirot, one of the most popular fictional detectives in literature. Agatha Christie was at her peek with this novel, which also introduces Captain Hastings who would accompany Poirot on a lot of of his future adventures. A amazing story.
I love the Greektown books. The descriptions of life in Greektown Detroit are spot on. Set during a typical Michigan winter, the family upheavals and tribulations could happen in any family. The murder scenes in A Wedding are a small tamer than we are used to reading from Jenkins. I hope this isn’t a trend. The gritty, jaw clenching murders in the earlier books are more to my e brief rehash of the latest book, Christmas in Greektown was helpful, divulging some fresh information about what had happened at the end.I can’t wait to search out what happens between Jim Pappas and Liz! So a lot of fresh couples to hold track of; the author could support by putting a family tree in the next book.Spoiler alert: Jill doesn’t seem too thrilled with the situation she finds herself in at the end of the book, which is more realistic to me than if she was jumping up and down for joy.
If you have been reading the Greektown Stories, then this is a must as so much more happens than zanne is such a terrific writer, but rather than add one or two more books to this series, she chose this one to test to wrap everything up. What happened is that there are just too a lot of story lines going on at one time - far more than her norm. I found myself forgetting who went with who, the whys, the wheres and the howcomes. It became one large cacaphony in the middle of a whirlwind, rather than the normal craziness that follows at being said, I search that I will be reading and rereading this one until I obtain everyone untangled.
Just finished reading "A Greektown Wedding." I really enjoyed this as there was more than one wedding involved. Also another several murders and the popular romancing and surprises. I'm hoping there will be a book 5 to hold adding to this. I would advise everyone to begin at book 1 and go through them to obtain to book 4 to obtain the full enjoyment out of them. The characters seem so true to me and I'll miss the family adventures.
Ms. Jenkins does it again!! I love this series and this is a amazing addition to it. The characters & interaction between them seems so realistic. The settings are vividly described and the book reads like you're watching a movie.
Suzanne Jenkins has done it again. A very entertaining story, which combined a small romance, mysterious tale of murder, and a lot of Greek family dynamics. I can definitely recommend this book and series and can't wait for book #5, which hopefully picks up with what happened with Sally and George and the rest of the families. I recommend you begin with Greektown Stories Book #1 and take it from there, so you know who's who and can follow the story better.
Another amazing story on the Zannos family of Greektown! Now there's something like love in the air for Jill! The family is growing with fresh people coming into the fold and the mysteries are continuing in the Detroit police department. There's something for everyone in this recent Zannos saga. Please hold them coming, Suzanne Jenkins!
When my family and I returned to Detroit after several years away, we went to our first dinner in Greektown, at Fresh Hellas. Just reading about "the where" brought back so a lot of amazing memories. The story was a small implausible, but, then, so is Greektown. A largely crime free white oasis in the middle of a crime-ridden, mostly black giant ghetto, in the center of what we all hope will continue as an Urban American Renaissance.
Suzanne Jenkins has become my favorite author. Her books have a small of everything. Romance, mystery, family and create you wish to read more. I have completed two of her series now. Pam of Babylon is a must read. Love her books.
Like most nevosoft games, only suggestion for improvement would be not to hold using the same hidden objects in completely various games! Otherwise the graphics are good, as is detail and at around £2 for a 20 chapter android game I will hold on enjoying android game after game! Nevosoft becoming a name I trust and recommend.
I barely touch the screen, especially when you only have a spot of light, and I am constantly being penalized . I have to move the screen to search the objects...it is very frustrating because I can't search the objects in time bcause u hold deducting seconds. If I hadn't paid for the android game I would uninstall. If it wasn't for that I have fun the android game but I can't obtain past trying to search things in the dark bcause I touch the screen and you penalize. That takes the fun out of it.
NOT HAPPY! I was enjoying the android game now I am super dissatisfied! You've had more than enough complaints about the same issue for 6 months! I am stuck on level 5-2 because I am unable to select the latest article Satisfied that the modernize fixed the issue getting the latest paper on 5-2. However I am now having the same issue on 6-1. Can't select the latest 2 candles because they are under the menu bar. WAITING FOR THE UPDATE!!!
I've played a couple of android games from nevo and thought they were ok. This one however is just awful. Its tedious, repetitive, mind numbing. If you love just finding stuff in the same locations over and over then you'll like this. The only thing that changes is how they give you the list of items, oh and be prepared to do a lot by torch as they love leaving you in the dark, there were 4 scenes back to back of the torch. There are no mini android games or puzzles, just find point click every single stage of every chapter
I can't obtain past the level with all the candles. There is one that is under the tip bar that I can't obtain to. This needs to be fixed. I've looked at other reviews and a lot of people are having the same problem. This might be acceptable if the android game was free but its not so it needs to be fixed. If they would fix that one issue it would be a fun android game worth a 4 to 5 star review but without the fix its not even worth the 1 star I had to give it to write a review!!
This is like virtual reality reading a book. Awesome!!!! Two things need to be fixed - again the art work is lacking, primarily when you have to go by shapes to search something. Sometimes the shapes aren't even in the same position as the item your looking for - this stricks me as a small deceptive. When I click the small tip button half the time it doesn't work. Oh, one more thing - when I scroll around a page (like when using the flashlight) I'm penalized for randomly clicking when I'm not.
I really like the android game but I noticed that the list of objects would (sometimes almost completely) cover the objects that I was searching for, and in the level where I am looking for candles for the nun the tip button completely covers one of the candles so I cannot finish the level. I would really like to hold the android game if you can fix that problem, but if not I would like a refund
Decent android game but the dark scenes need to be fixed. It's ridiculous that it counts versus you every time you move the light. Frankly I'm surprised they launched the android game with such a large glitch, and apparently every android game they create does the same thing. Unacceptable.
this is a gud android game very addictive!! ive had 2 turn the timed mode of tho as if u zoom in 2 support u obtain a red cross wen ur movin the screen, ive lost lots of time n lost android games coz of this!!! its VERY annoyin!!! pls fix this!?!? wil giv more stars once its bin changed !!!
I like these games. Although storylines aren't really good, there all always a few stuff to challenge your eyes. It's a pity they're not long enough. As I don't have a lot of room on my fone, I tend to buy them, do them & delete them. But amazing to waste a few hours. Very addictive.
Love hidden object android games :-) like this one too but I finished it in one day only because I had all day to waste and test to pass the time with :-) should place mini android games in the levels to create it longer and more interesting like your other android games :-)
