other stories, the plots here are weaker but they still hold your attention Average read The anthology consists of the following short stories The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding Poirot was persuaded to find a historical ruby stolen from a foreign prince Trying to get to it, Poirot ended up in a traditional British family during a celebration of Christmas all done according to the best

anthology consists of the following short stories The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding Poirot was persuaded to find a historical ruby stolen from a foreign prince Trying to get to it, Poirot ended up in a traditional British family during a celebration of Christmas all done according to the best British traditions Poirot was able not only to recover the ruby, but also to solve a minor but annoying problem his hosts were facing.A good story which made me feel like trying to find a place where they still celebrate Christmas the most traditional way On the negative side, Poirot did not do much investigation but rather some very clever play on psychology Mystery of the Spanish Chest I feel like this story is included in every Agatha Christie short story collection It is actually quite good, but by now I can probably recite it from the end to the beginning thanks to the number of times I read it In any way, the plot is the following A dead body was found in a chest after a party Obviously the suspicion lies with the host Hercule Poirot was asked to prove his innocence Hercule Poirot obviously did.The Underdog Again I have seen this in one of the previous anthologies For this reason I will shamelessly plagiarize myself A guy who was actually a big jerk was murdered and all the clues pointed to his nephew as a murderer However the widow the convinced he was innocent because her woman intuition said so She convinced Poirot to take the case The latter learned sometimes you really need to trust the intuition I fell Agatha Christie did something here she has already done before she broke one of the rules for mystery writers from the Golden Mystery Age I also think the Queen of Mystery fully entitled to do this if she feels like it Four and Twenty Blackbirds Can you solve a murder by observing a regular client who broke his tradition and ordered something he never did before Poirot can This only observation was enough for him to find the solution.This is a very short story, but Poirot really shines here The Dream Another one I have read in another anthology before Again plagiarism of myself follows A millionaire told Poirot about his recurring dream every night he was dreaming about committing a suicide under very peculiar circumstances Poirot admitted he could not do anything about the dream Some time later the guy really committed the suicide exactly how he described it to Poirot.One of the best stories of the anthology This was my third time reading it and now that I knew what to watch for I was able to see the clues everywhere My first time I was completely puzzled Greenshaw s Folly Poirot took a vacation and Miss Marple entered the scene, so to speak A woman who owned one of the ugliest mansions in Great Britain was killed with a bow arrow The old spinster Miss Marple obviously solved the crime before the police This is a good story, quite on the level of the best of Miss Marple investigations.On the whole the anthology is worth 4 stars Most of the short stories wereinteresting than the last Poirot novel Next Poirot short story anthology, here I come In this Agatha Christie novella, Hercule Poirot finds himself visiting an English manor during the Christmas season The thought of a fourteenth century English manor house filled him with apprehension He had suffered too often in the historic country houses of England A

Marple, this collection is the perfect read for me as usually around the holidays I have less time to read than usual Originally published in 1960, this is one of Christie s later publications While I find the earlier publications better, this collection had the distinct personality and mannerisms of both Poirot and Marple and the same charm of Christie on every page The standout story for me is the book title, The Adventures of the Christmas Pudding I love the setting, characters and build up to the reveal I especially like how particular Poirot has become Generally speaking, I enjoyed all these stories and found the collection to bethan a pleasent read The home stretch of my Poirot run 33, and the story, The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding a.k.a The Theft of the Royal Ruby is not a story I would normally want to read in August Well, I guess I might never want to read a light hearted family tale set at Christmas time, truthfully Oh, with a murder, of course, but hey, it s Christmas, so it s the least grisly murder mystery The story is part of a short story collection, which I read quickly, not that interested in most of them, and n The home stretch of my Poirot run 33,

quickly, not that interested in most of them, and not a mystery short story fan, but you know, I made a commitment to read all these Poirot books The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding is really a novella, the first and longest in the collection Hercules Poirot is invited to attend Christmas at a house where a ruby is missing All the kids in the house challenge Poirot by setting up a subplot Poirot solves the case and teaches the kids a lesson The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding was the only one set during Christmas In Christie s foreword Christie she explains how her childhood Christmases spent in Abney Hall inspired the story As with many Christmas stories, it feels nostalgic and sentimental, a mystery directed to a perhaps younger audience, for the first time in my experience with Christie The 70 year old Christie, writing this now in 1960, makes a couple digs at beatnik culture of the time evident in England Dame Christie was no beatnik, in case you were wondering Christie s characters here are forgettable, but sh is ever the cleverest plot master she would prefer plot mistress, I think , so the resolution of this little harmless story adds a star
