I read this back in 2011 but not this particular copy. Here are my thoughts at the time:

The trouble with reading some of the Poirot & Miss Marple books is the number of them that have been televised and therefore I have a preconception of what will happen. The good thing is that quite often the TV adaptation has diverged from the book and that means that you can still enjoy the read.

The biggest difference between this book and the TV version is that Poirot is on screen 99% of the time yet in the book, he hardly features until halfway through and, of course, there's no Hastings! There are one or two other changes, but the main plot is still the same, so sadly I knew roughly what would happen & 'whodunit', but it was still enjoyable and still an easy diversion after struggling a little with my previous read.

It's the usual comments: if you like Agatha Christie, then you'll like this book, it's up to her usual standards and as always, captures the period. If you're looking for a nice easy (& quick) read, this is perfect.
