Celebrating the fact that we are now half way through advent (!) I have been listening to a fantastic audio version of ‘Hercule Poirot’s Christmas’, this morning – and what a wonderful whodunit it is! Such a variety of characters and an intriguing murder. Everyone seemed to be a suspect, and I enjoyed how the particulars of the crime were distributed throughout the story: creating a very entertaining read. I found it quite spooky, yet effective, how one of the character’s quoted from Shakespeare’s Macbeth: “Who would have thought, the old man to have so much blood in him?” and other discrete details, along similar lines, really made the story enthralling and enjoyable. The Audio version I was listening to, had a full cast dramatization of the story, and it really brought the mystery to life: hearing the bangs and crashes: the desperate cries of innocence between the characters, which made the whole thing so perplexing. Thoroughly enjoyable.
