Review: Poirot Investigates

Poirot Investigates
Poirot Investigates by Agatha Christie
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A collection of short stories featuring everyone’s favorite rotund Belgian detective, narrated as always by the amiable but clueless Captain Hastings. The Poirot of the stories and novels is enough of a different character, and details of these stories different enough in their original form, that it is well worth the time to read these even if you’ve seen the TV versions.

My favorites of this collection are “The Disappearance of Mr. Davenheim” and “The Chocolate Box,” both of which show off different aspects of Poirot’s personality. Highly recommended.
