批評家のレビュー

"Poirot's return to the happy hunting grounds of detective fiction is something of an event...The thumbnail sketches of the characters are as good as ever and in spite of the over-elaborate nature of the puzzle there is plenty of entertainment." ( Times Lite)

あらすじ・解説

An outbreak of kleptomania at a student hostel was not normally the sort of crime that aroused Hercule Poirot's interest. But then he saw the list of stolen and vandalized items: a stethoscope, some old flannel trousers, a box of chocolates, a slashed rucksack, and a diamond ring found in a bowl of soup. He congratulated the warden, Mrs Hubbard, on a "unique and beautiful problem".

The list made absolutely no sense at all. But, reasoned Poirot, if this was merely a petty thief at work, why was everyone at the hostel so frightened?

Enter Miss Lemon!

What did you like best about this story?

I love that the indefectible Miss Lemon (Poirot's secretary) not only gets a backstory but finally makes a mistake. Of all the minor characters Agatha Christie weaves into her narratives (she's in most Poirot novels) Miss Lemon and her filing system has always appealed to me as the perfect match for Poirot's meticulous nature. Agatha Christie clearly had a ball destroying Poirot's calm and he sets out to solve a clever case of theft just to get his well-ordered domain back. But before long there's murder thrown into the mix...

What does Hugh Fraser bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Many Poirot fans will recognise Hugh Fraser's voice from some of the TV adaptations as Captain Hastings.

Lacks the characteristic Christie zing.

Any additional comments?

Agatha Christie was always an excellent writer and this book is good a story, and it is well read by "Captain Hastings", although his French-Belgian accent could be improved. However for me as a long standing Christie fan, these more recent books are definitely not as good as those set in earlier periods. I would think that as she got older and times and morés changed, Christie was less in touch with the era, and her characters and story don't have quite the same power as those set in the pre war period.

Hickory, Dickorey Dock

This is not my favourite Agatha Christie novel but the performance is good. When listening I forget that it isn't David Suchet as Poirot!

Good story - high body count for a Christie

As usual, great narration by Hugh Fraser. Poirot in his later years, a nice little plot with plenty of twists.

Good

Good but not my fav Poirot, didn't love the characters and I missed the high society settings etc. Was still good and worth the listen.

Doesn't miss a beat

Don't be fooled by the apparently quiet start, this has the usual Agatha Christie hallmarks, and before you know it you'll be hooked - by mis-direction, multiple layers of deceit, and plot twists that don't insult the reader's intelligence. Her characters are real people and few are what they first seem to be. And I really like that Christie also exposes the stupidity and futility of human vanity, greed and mis-judgement - including gender, racial and class prejudice - making them central to the menace and cruelty in which this story is wreathed.

Not her best story but still enjoyable

A bit of a strange and unlikely story but still enjoyable; well read, as always, by the marvellous Hugh Fraser.
