My Favourites happen to be set in Britain but Death On The Nile is quite high up where as Peril At End House is near the bottom just above Murder In Mesopotamia, and Five Little Pigs, Sad Cypruss, Hickory Dickory Dock and The Hollow are nearer Peril At End House than Death On The Nile.
I am confused, Is The question about The Books with Poirot or the David Suchet series, I have said many times I haven't got a favourite of the Books, My FavouriteS are ABC Murders, Cards On The Table, Mrs McGinty's Dead, Cat Among The Pigeons, Death On The Nile, The Clocks and Evil Under The Sun, my Favourite ADAPTATIONS are all of those MINUS Cards ON The Table, I like The Afaptation of Evil Under The Sun because it has Hastings, Japp and Miss Lemon, I love The Film too.
Right now my favourite book Poirot book is "The Hollow". My favourite Movie is the old "Evil under the sun" and my favourite actor who played Poirot is Albert Finney. I'm sure these selections won't be very popular.
I love how in Evil Under The Sun, the book that is, Poirot compares the tanned, bronzed bodies lying in the sun to slabs of meat on the butchers table. Only Poirot can make such an odd simile. Good use of humor yet dark at the same time.
I agree tali, it is Brilliant, I love the points you make.
Curtain is definitely my favourite Poirot book but I thought the Suchet adaptation was terrible.
I love how in Evil Under The Sun, the book that is, Poirot compares the tanned, bronzed bodies lying in the sun to slabs of meat on the butchers table. Only Poirot can make such an odd simile. Good use of humor yet dark at the same timeI just LOVE this quote! Poirot's remark really takes you by surprise. My favourite Poirot novel is easily Cards on the Table. Favourite short story is The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding - I've read this one so MANY times and I never tire of it!
My Favourite Short story is the Hunters Lodge one, I love the way Poirot solves it without being on the scene.
