Hercule Poirot Investigates

There is no author I hold up as a role model for myself more than Dame Agatha Christie. The first book I read of hers was And Then There Were None. I was hooked! Then I discovered Hercule Poirot and I was mesmerized. Before him I was a huge Sherlock Holmes fan. Now? Well, now I have no comment…

David Suchet will always be for me the quintessential Poirot. I’m aware there were others before him, and there will be others after him, but, like Jeremy Brett’s portrayal of Sherlock Holmes, for me, there will never be another to come close! I just recently discovered David Suchet actually filmed every single one of novels, including short stories, that were written by Agatha Christie about Poirot. This gave me an idea! Why not read the book, then watch the correlating episode (all of which are available on Acorn TV for just $2.99/mo is more than worth it) and review them both side by side?

So join me as I read ALL of Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poirot mysteries (Including Short Story Collections)!
