    Excellent, Poirot at his imperious best More thoughts tomorrow.Through Christmas and the New Year 2018 19 my family and I watched a lot of Agatha Christie, from David Suchet s Poirot, through Peter Ustinov to John Malkovich, plus also a documentary drama about Christie s disappearance for 11 days in 1926 Included in this Christmas Christie extravaganza was Three act tragedy.So to the book itself although Poirot does not appear as much as he does in the TV version, he is still instrumental in the solving of the crime, despite Sir Charles Cartwright playing the great detective Without giving the game away, there are a number of twists and turns that had me confused and bamboozled in both the tv version and the book, needless to say Herc...

    The Three Act Tragedy is yet another interesting murder mystery of the Poirot series The story is written in three acts as if on a play, and true to its kind, there is a lively drama that unfolds through the chapters view spoiler The local curate dies at a house party given by the famous actor, Sir Charles Cartwright The instant conclusion is that he is poisoned Bu...

    I freely admit to my own bias the reason I recently gave Peril at End House only 3 stars is the same reason I am giving Three Act Tragedy five I solved End House with embarrassing speed for reasons outlined in my review , whereas Three Act Tragedy blindsided me I was absolutely convinced that the murderer was Miss Milray, and that she had dressed in drag as the butler I think Christie predicted that the careful reader would think so, hence her playing with us in the scene at the end when Miss M tries to destroy evidence I loved having a further twist catch me off guard I felt that all was back to normal in Christie land when The Queen of Crime outfoxed me as I expect her to do After all, that is why I love and respect her above all others if I want to solve a mystery halfway through I ll read Sayers or Tey or any of her other contemporaries.However, Three Act Tragedy deserves all five stars quite apart from whether I solved it before Poirot or not It s not a well known novel at all in fact I d never read it before and was amazed to find such a strong Golden Age Christie novel had slipped under my radar Dame Agatha thinks of everything she answers every question I had save one on that later For example, I wondered at first why Poirot was even in this novel since Mr Satterthwaite seemed to be doing...

    Simply delicious, but Poirot would have been appreciated Plus, now I can t get my mind off of the idea of Mr Quinn magically popping up to pair up with Poirot and his old friend Satterthwaite who is in this book and to whom I owe this bookish dream of mine.

    I guess it s a testament in and of itself that when it comes to Agatha Christie, I devour a book in one sitting, remain thoroughly lost to the outside world in the interim, and never even read the synopsis I wholeheartedly trust that whichever book I pick will be worthwhile.But then, Agatha Christie was my childhood Say what you will, but even when it comes to evil and muuuuuuuurder, we tend to trust our childhood Nostalgia Memories Rose tinted glasses.And, in Agatha Christie s case a repeated justification of all of the above The titular Queen of Crime is just that good for me Beware the inherent bias It is strong in this one Three Act Tragedy, as the title might imply, features idiosyncratic actors, astute playwrights, eccentric roles, reminiscences of stage productions, and most of all a murder in three acts Which, really, is code for three interconnected murders of varying degrees of significance And which give a whole new meaning to choose your poison Unlike his usual solitary sleuthing ways or ones where Hastings tags along and remains continually baffled, puzzled and in awe of Poirot s detecting and deductive skills , in Three Act Tragedy Poirot has teamed up with a team of individuals all too invested in the resolution of the murders Moreover, Poirot is willing to give the limelight up entirely in favor of one who seems to need the acclaim After all, tout le monde conna t the great Hercule Poirot He may share the s...

    This book was a bit frustrating for awhile Hardly any Hercule Poirot was in it Even so, I grew a bit bored and not just because of the absence of the detective At first the story was all over the place before the middle act, which was distracting The characters and scenes were interesting enough for a bit, but mehI kept wanting to skim ahead after awhile Much of it was thoughtful dialogue among secondary characters without any continuing ties to go on After page 128, seriously, Hercule Poirot started appearing for real There was a minor scene with him at the beginning but nothing fancy Once he came on stage the story started to come together even so, even if it wasn t from his usual detective type meddling At first I was afraid this would be another disappointing mystery type where a solution is found without any clever clues to help the readerhowever, it turned not to be so when the case was explained.The clues instead were so very minor and subtle it was almost...
