あらすじ・解説

Beautiful Caroline Crale was convicted of poisoning her husband, yet there were five other suspects: Philip Blake (the stockbroker) who went to market; Meredith Blake (the amateur herbalist) who stayed at home; Elsa Greer (the three-time divorcee) who had roast beef; Cecilia Williams (the devoted governess) who had none; and Angela Warren (the disfigured sister) who cried ‘wee wee wee’ all the way home. It is sixteen years later, but Hercule Poirot just can’t get that nursery rhyme out of his mind…

Great book!

I enjoyed this book a lot. The language used is beautiful and descriptive, and the story engaging and well imagined. I also very much liked that Hugh Frasier reads it, as he reads it in a calm and nicely paced way while still making every character distinctive.

If only all Agatha's books were as good.

A regular old fashioned "Who Done It?" Poirot is a little more low profile, and still solves the problem. The other 5 star listen is a play Spiders Web.. Hugh Fraser gives his usual good reader performance in this. The plot is maybe a little contrived, however it does suit the nature of the mystery.

One of the best

This is one of Christie’s best plots and well paced with interesting characters . Only the end lacks a bit of drama and human reaction.

Poirot's cold case

★★★★✰ 4.5 stars

“Juliet singles out Romeo. Desdemona claims Othello. They have no doubts, the young, no fear, no pride.”

I thoroughly enjoyed Five Little Pigs. Departing from her usual formula Christie shows just how good a writer she is. This mystery is a cold case which did not slow down the narrative, quite the contrary as it turns out. After Poirot is approached by Carla Crale he undertakes what might seem like a futile endeavour. The murderer of the father of his newest client has already been convicted. Yet, in a letter addressed to her daughter Caroline Crale claims that she did not kill her husband, Amyas.
With his curiosity piqued, Poirot approaches the five people who had been with the Crales on that tragic day.
I loved the small differences the characters gave in their recollections of the events leading to Amyas' death. They paid attention to different things, ascribed certain meaning to certain words, gave more weight to one thing than another. Each version has its unique take on the Crales and what really happened.
I loved that it was...sad. There is Christie's usual humour but here it is more subdued. This is a bittersweet mystery that takes readers down five wistful paths.
The audiobook version is superb (I look forward to reading it too).

Tiresome cold case

Slow moving cold case, lacking any excitement or urgency. Story is still ok, but nothing special, unlike the other Poirot books. Hugh Fraser is of course magnificent

Five Little Pigs

It was an unusual twist on a story. While the ending was vaguely predictable, the various reflections offered by the 5 people a past event was fascinating.

Very engaging mystery

Listened to this on long journey to and from our holiday. Really enjoyed it. Love Poirot and made a 5 hour journey each way fly. I had seen a TV drama - but so much more detail in this audio dramatisation. Characters were really good. Really recommend this.

Different

Largely written from the perspective of transcripts it doesn’t have much on Poirot and his thinking’s.
It’s a good, interesting case none the less.

Worth listening to.

Well read and an excellent story. One of Agatha Christie’s best novels. Great plot and an interesting way of unraveling the crime.

Thought I solved it but I didn't. Great story!

I've always enjoyed Poirot stories but this has to be one of my top 3 favourites. I really thought I had solved the thing & fancied myself clever, but of course, Poirot saw more than I and I was wrong! Great story.

Some technical glitches

All round a great production but right at the end there is an abrupt end, sometimes to do with the editing. It really puts a dampener on it.
