  • Poor remake of Hercule Poirot

    When you are attempting to replicate legends, you should be very focused and detail oriented, because the people who read such novels are hard-core fans of these legends and will not compromise on quality. Dame Agatha Christie is the Goddess of Mystery, in my opinion. So, when “Monogram Murders” came out, I was very excited to meet Poirot again with his French exclamations and over-the-top attitude. However, I was to be terribly disappointed. The story started fast and well. The initial feel of the book was authentic and nostalgic. However, as the story progressed, Hercule Poirot changed considerably. The much-too-humble Poirot felt like a completely different person. Catchpool was added and played the role of Watson. However, many a times through the book, it is shown that Poirot almost missed out on several important points and Catchpool in fact saved the day. However, Catchpool is too immature or too much of a novice to be a detective. Therefore, Poirot depending on such a person to gain insights is something far too impossible to imagine. All this is very different from the Poirot I know and admire. The comes the climax – which lasted a good 4 chapters. Who puts climax for so long? Towards the end, I was so bored that I did not have the patience to even finish the climax. With a seemingly dumb Poirot and a never-ending Climax, I really have almost no stars to give this book. 1 star just so I could meet Poirot again, even if it was only for a couple of initial chapters

  • When will it end?

    How could anyone attach Agatha Christie's name to this???? I managed to endure the never ending plot twists until the last chapter. Then I quit. By that point I no longer cared who killed whom or why.

  • The Monogram Murders

    Needlessly complicated. Poirot explaining how it was done takes five long chapters. And the dumb detective is perpetually without a clue. Read a real Christie instead.

  • Not what I expected

    I enjoyed the story but found the writing tediously complicated - dragged on and on!!! I have read a few Agatha Christie mysteries in the past & thoroughly enjoyed them. I won't read this author - Sophie Hannah - again.

  • The monogram murders

    Ok, just didn't have the flair that Christie had..but made for a good mystery read! Don't know if I would read another by her?
