    Side Note In August last year I reached a personal milestone of 1000 books read so far in this decade with the first of Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poirot series The Mysterious Affair at Styles With this second novel in the Hercule Poirot series I have reached another personal milestone 1000 eBook reads on my eReader One thing I can already see since I bought my first eReader I have definitely been reading books than ever before – and that is definitely a good thing PS – my reading decades are tracked differently than most people track decades I start with the ‘zero year’ and end with the ‘nine year’ – in other words for my reading purposes this decade started for me in January 2010 and ends at the end of December this year 2019 Captain Arthur Hastings chronicles this second novel in Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poirot series just as he did in the first one Poirot receives an urgent letter from a very wealthy man who says he is in fear of his life and desperately reuires Poirot’s assistance When Poirot and Hastings arrive they are met with the news that the man was murdered in the ‘bunkair’ as Poirot calls it that was being built on a golf course under constructionOf course in real golf landing one’s golf ball in a bunker filled with sand and a bank along one edge is definitely not a good thing as they are notoriously difficult to chip one’s way out of In this case landing in the ‘bunkair’ due to a stab in the back is of course far worseThe plot in this novel rivals any that can be found in modern mystery writing In fact it not only rivals them but in the majority of cases supersedes them substantially It has been many years since I read some of Agatha Christie’s novels and to be honest – I don’t think I would recognize the ones I previously read after so many years have passed of life experience and readingMs Christie’s characters may not be as strong yet that is out of necessity In each book several characters have to be admitted to set the stage disassemble it re set it and so forth It wouldn’t even be responsible of her as a writer to dramatize the characters beyond the extent that she does because I can’t imagine anything worse as a reader than to find a character I was really attached to turn into a criminalHowever we have Hercule Poirot He may be tiny with big flowing mustaches and an obsession with adjusting the position of various objects that look out of alignment to him Still if he is not physically the ultimate hero to warm up to his brain and how it works to solve the unsolvable is a huge attraction And we have Captain Arthur Hastings – young dashing and not nearly as swift to hone in on clues that his friend sees in seconds he is still endearing in his efforts to keep up to the electrically charged PoirotAlthough I have not been able to insert into my reading schedule as many Agatha Christie novels as I would like to there are definitely upcoming during the latter part of this year I am so much looking forward to my further adventures with the incorrigible and daunting team of Poirot and Hastings

    The Murder on the Links by Agatha Christie is a 1923 publication Poirot has been frantically summoned to France by Monsieur Paul Renauld Unfortunately upon arrival Hastings and Poirot are informed they have arrived too late and Renauld is dead murdered as it so happens Pitted against a younger and eually confident detective Poirot is determined to meet his competition head on utilizing his advantage of experience to solve the crimeThis is the second Poirot by Agatha Christie and is one I have not read Christie obviously found inspiration with Holmes and Watson and one can debate whether this is a homage or a parody but either way she did a masterful job with this twisty complex whodunitI thoroughly enjoyed this classic mystery I was never able to sit back smugly confident that I had it all figured out Christie was always at least two steps ahead of me This is a stunning guessing game narrated by Hastings who provides his own uniue observations along with his amusing commentary Despite its age and our current desensitization and demand for shock and awe I think this story stands on its own merits uite well With the exception of a bit of cringe worthy insta love Christie is very clever and it is obvious she put much thought into the plot dotting the I’s and crossing the t’s I was enthralled by her skill and it is easy to see why she had such an enormous impact on the mystery genre As pure mysteries are few and far between right now I’m looking to read classics Having read Poirot mysteries off and on over the years I know this one might not rank up there with some of the later installments but this a smart and impressive gem4 stars

    It's early days for Poirot who I love A fun murder mystery full of twists and turns that only he can solve

    Hercule Poirot was bored complaining about modern criminals not able to commit a crime to make his famous grey cells work At this moment he received a letter from a South American millionaire living in France stating that his life was in danger and beseeching Poirot to come to the rescue Poirot felt something out of the ordinary was going on and decided to go to France accompanied by his clueless sidekick Captain Hastings Upon arrival they realized that they were late as the body of the millionaire stabbed in black with a knife was found on the links see the title Thus began a typical Agatha Christie mystery full of twists complications and clues that could not be put together Poirot was busy trying to make heads and tails while Hastings was eually busy being melodramatic stupid and falling in love with all the pretty girls they came across This book was my first time I read Agatha Christie mystery obviously it was also my first time I met Poirot For my it came as a revelation that is was possible to write an insanely complicated puzzle while keeping all the clues in the open for readers to try to follow Poirot reasoning I stumbled upon it in the worst possible time I was preparing for an important final exam As a result I almost failed it there could be no way I did any studying until I discover whodunit Needless to say I instantly set Agatha Christie at the top of the best mystery writers ever and she still occupies this spot many years later She wrote some stinkers but at her best she was practically unrivaled Before I started my reread I thought I would give the book five stars but I had to give four The biggest problem for me was Hastings To put is in simple terms the guy is imbecile Luckily he is absent from the most books of the series Some minor annoyances added up as well Still the mystery is top notch and in case you have any interest at all in mysteries of just tough puzzles you owe it to yourself to read it especially now that the book is out of copyright and it along with the first Poirot story can be downloaded for free from places like Project Gutenberg PS I keep using images of David Suchet playing Poirot because I think his performance was brilliant

    Women’s history month is fast approaching and I could not resist to start my annual reading women authors in March a few days early Between denser reads I enjoy reading mysteries as a palette cleanser This keeps my brain sharp and keeps me from falling into a reading rut I find almost no better way to honor women’s history month than to read the ueen of Crime Agatha Christie Nearly every mystery writer of today can trace their influences back to Dame Christie and each of her cases adds a new layer of intrigue I have enjoyed cases featuring the Belgian detective Hercule Poirot for years and decided to fill in the gaps with Murder on the Links an earlier case of Poirot’s I previously overlooked Fresh of his case at Styles Poirot and his assistant Captain Hastings are summoned to Merlinville France a seaside town by Monsieur Renauld as he fears that his life is in danger By the time he arrives at Renauld’s Villa Genevieve he has been murdered Rather than protecting his client Poirot assists in investigating his murder Even in his earlier cases younger detectives refer to Poirot as a fossil a has been whose methods are antiuated In this case we meet local detective Giraud a go get them type who claims to know whodunit how and why from the get go Giraud exhibits charisma and pizazz as a modern detective leading Hastings to uestion his mentor’s methodology A retired Belgian detective who runs a private investigator firm in London Poirot often appears lost in thought yet his little gray cells are hard at work throughout the duration of a case in order to bring the true criminal to justice At first glance it appears that Monsieur Renauld’s son Jack murdered his father over anger of being cut out of his will Should both parents somehow die he would stand to inherit a vast fortune Two women have fallen for Jack and it is unclear at first whether either of these women are in love with Jack or with his money Poirot figures it out immediately and has to piece together clues Giraud on the other hand sees things in black and white and leads Captain Hastings down a trail of false clues Complicating the matter is that Hastings has also fallen in love with a pretty young girl who calls herself Cinderella Poirot warns his protege of falling in love for the wrong reasons as the presence of a woman who cloud his judgement of a case a judgement that is already fuzzy due to the presence of pseudo detective Giraud As a result Poirot and Hastings are at odds for most of this case as Poirot races to solve it before the French convict the wrong person As with many of her cases Christie leads readers down a multi layered trail that evolves as Poirot cracks the case Here the murder occurs on a golf course in what Poirot calls a “bunk air” yet golf links has a double entendre linking the Renauld case to one that occurred twenty years in the past No one is who they seem to everyone except Poirot as he has been solving crime for decades and has a lifetime of detecting experience to compare to his current employment Hastings lack of use of his little gray cells is apparent throughout as Poirot urges him to think things through rather than to leap to the first conclusion that comes to him As this is the first mention of Hastings in the Poirot series it is clear that Christie has meant for be an able sidekick; however he is the type to solve things by accident allowing for Poirot to do the serious detecting Even from these earliest of cases Christie reveals that Poirot does not overlook even the minutest of details as he sees the case to its conclusion In his words a clue of two inches is just as important as one of two feet putting the framework in place for Poirot to be known as one of the greatest detectives in literary history It is hard to believe that Agatha Christie published her earliest cases nearly one hundred years ago Her first cases were written in the early 1920s and have stood the test of time as Hercule Poirot and his mustache have endured as among the most recognizable literary profiles I did utilize my little gray cells and avoid a reading rut as I read along to discover whodunit It is always fun to read an Agatha Christie murder mystery and it is far from my last journey with her As such women’s history month has commenced and I am excited for the reading adventures the month has in store for me 4 stars

    This plot is so complicated that I lost count of the number of times I lost count of its coups de théâtre So layered At one point when a first second? Told you I lost count solution is offered Poirot says “This is not a crime well ordered and regular such as a detective delights in ah indeed what order or method is there in that?”and I pretty much agreed with him I was appalled I disliked that solution so much it made so little sense that I thought it was the worst of all of Christie's novel I had ever read and believe me they are uite a lot But then another solution came up et voilà I fell in love again On top of that I fell in love again in spite of all the sentimentalism the whole story is seasoned with It may be tough to deal with at times but I promise it will be worth the effort “Take it from Papa Poirot”PS Hastings needs to disappear now He is such a moron I can't even I find so much easier to enjoy the novels where he is simply a minor character rather than the sole narrator and between you and me if you haven't read Poirot yet and you're trying to choose where to begin my suggestion is to start from a novel of the former type cough Murder on the Orient Express cough cough

    Great I couldn't stop reading it I read this in just one session I didn't want to leave it for the next day An intricate and complex plot but one that isn't confusing One of the best Agatha Christie books I've read in all my life It was a pleasant surprise for me

    I was much impressed by this one when I first read it in my impressionable teenage self 25 years ago Did this translation of Murder on the Links pass muster on any level?For one I really appreciated the character of Giraud He was the main source of delight in the entire book The latter however was too romantic in its structureHastings gets the girl Poirot gets the plaudits and pockets 500 francs and Jack Renauld a character of solely this book gets his love and inherits millions But it's all for naught The mystery was not consummate in its artistic rendering
