I have only read the first chapter, but it is eerily like the introduction to most any of the Sherlock Holmes stories. He is obviously her inspiration.

"Peril At End House was surprisingly a great reading experience for me and it is now one of my favourite Agatha Christie novels. The plot and characters are interesting and as usual, Poirot and Hastings continue their typical banter during the investigation. I think Christie's use of fireworks to conceal the noise of gunshots was pretty ingenious. I actually guessed the identity of the killer half way through the book, but it was still surprising when the identity and motive was revealed. "Peril At End House" is a great book and I strongly recommend this for both newcomers and Christie fans.

I like Christie's writing and Poirot is one of entertainment's great character creations. I haven't read much Christie for decades, but I read this because I like the tv series with David Suchet very, very much. I prefer the tv series in fact, but the books are well worth reading, especially for Poirot fans, they add, to the interest of the now substantial mythos.

I'm a huge fan of Agatha Christie and the Hercule Poirot series, and this one was fairly satisfying. As usual, Agatha Christie works wonders and the ending was shocking, but I feel like the plot was kind of overdone and had a few loopholes. In this one, Hercules Poirot is duped more than once and seems to be a bit below his usual omniscient self, but still, this was an enjoyable read.
