    1. " !! يا بنت اللذين " و دي جملة بتتقال فور انتهائك من قراءة رواية لأجاثا كريستي

    2. 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 [...]

    3. The Murder on the Links: A RetrospectiveIt was almost fifty years ago I read my first Agatha Christie novel. I was fourteen. I bought it at a middle school book fair. It was an Hercule Poirot mystery, The Big Four, a Dell paperback that sold for $.45. A bargain at the price.My First Poirot Through the coming years I read all of the Poirot novels. A few of the Miss Marples. Miss Marple just didn't grab me as Poirot and his friend Hastings did. As far as Tommy and Tuppence, well, I could do withou [...]

    4. Ο Πουαρό σε μία γνήσια κλασική «αγκαθική» περιπέτεια, στην οποία διακριτικά και αθόρυβα παρατηρεί τα πάντα ενώ ο γνωστός και μη εξαιρετέος αφηγητής Χεηστινγκς τα κάνει μαντάρα. Τίποτα καινούριο, αλλά προσωπικά αυτή την παλιά καλή οικεία συνταγή την αγαπώ!

    5. Well what can I say, I have just added this to my "favourites" and given it 5 stars, so erm it was good. Ok that was understatement, I reallyreally enjoyed this. Astonishingly I have never read this before, nor do I remember the Suchet TV version, so it was a great experience to read a Poirot not knowing the answers.As always with Christie the characterisation was fantastic. I find it very difficult to believe this was only the 2nd Poirot book as it was so "mature". Poirot was excellent and this [...]

    6. This is the second major case for Poirot, following on from "The Mysterious Affair of Styles". For some reason I had never read this one - perhaps the link with golf put me off when I was younger and beginning to read Christie's novels. However, the link with golf is tenuous and it is, thankfully, hard to imagine Poirot wishing to indulge in sporting activities! The story begins with Hastings meeting a young woman on a train on his way back to London. He barely arrives before Poirot receives a l [...]

    7. The second Hercule Poirot novel. To explain its plot accurately would take half an hour and a whiteboard, but briefly: the Belgian detective and his aide Hastings are summoned to the house of M. Renauld, a millionaire who fears for his life. They arrive too late, finding him already dead, half-buried in an unfinished golf bunker, supposedly at the hands of bearded foreign thugs, and possibly at the hands of a jilted lover. But Poirot soon unearths not one, but two of the principals are living un [...]

    8. “Two people rarely see the same thing.”Another enjoyable Christie. This one is quite confusing with a lot of seemingly nonsensical elements. I did get a few clues right (can't help myself trying) but nothing else. This is partly due to the author not sharing all the data. Naturally, once all is revealed and explained, it made perfect sense.Another aspect that was highly entertaining was seeing Poirot compete with the French inspector. Not only was this funny (can't believe Poirot restrained [...]

    9. I spent a lot of ‘Murder on the Links’ distinctly worried about Captain Hastings. Firstly, he spends some time seemingly flirting with a younger, French detective, even at points seeming to agree with this interloper that Poirot is past it; then he causes a crime scene to be corrupted; and finally he actually puts himself in opposition to Hercule Poirot. As if he could ever beat his old friend in a battle of wits or a battle of nerves or a battle of anything. In later Poirot novels, Hastings [...]

    10. This is the book where Col. Hastings meets the future Mrs. Hastings. At least that’s what said. I had my doubts, though. He seemed to be lusting after every pretty young girl.Anyway, a body is found on the golf course and it’s up to Poirot to find the killer.

    11. Wonderful ♥Gosh, Agatha Christie is such a delight to read. And bloody hell that woman knows how to write some twists and turns. I'll admit that Captain Hastings insta-love storyline isn't my thing, but we'll forgive it all because Christie and Poirot are wonderful.

    12. Nothing quite like a rainy Sunday to sit down and get stuck into Agatha Christie.I have a special spot for Poirot, and if I'm honest, Captain Hastings as the narrator.This was classic Christie with twists and turns and secret identities.And I loved it.

    13. Generalno neću nešto posebno kometarisati ove knjige pošto je najbolje kada se uđe "slep" u njih. Kazaću samo da svaka čast Agati,stvarno je ovo zaamrsila ko klupko konca sa kojim se mače igra. Iskreno bih čak reko da je možda malo i preterala pošto ima samo tolko obrta pre nego što prestaju da iznenađuju. Posle toga već očekuješ da će se brzo desiti nešto da sve opet okrene.

    14. A somewhat sloppy mystery. Lots of running around, despite Poirot saying he doesn't like running around. There are bits of information that are revealed a little late so it was harder to figure this one out. Hastings narrates, and he is totally ruled by his hormones in this story, while Poirot clashes, mildly, with a French detective, who insists there are many clues to be found in ash, matches and other little things. (Seems like a little dig at another famous fictional detective)

    15. I realized this year that I have never read this book. I could have sworn I had since I did my Poirot readings a few years back, but then realized nope that I must have confused this book with another. Either way, I am thrilled that I got a chance to immerse myself back into the world of our egg-head shaped detective and his "little gray cells."Told in the first person POV by Hastings (Poirot's mostly bumbling and honestly dumb as anything assistant) in this one. We have Hasting and Poirot go of [...]

    16. A much better Hercule Poirot mystery that her first book. This book is the 3rd of her works and she really moves this one along, almost as she did with The Secret Adversary (a Tommy & Tuppence mystery). It has a good pacing, a very good plot and for the most part this is a fine effort, but once again she gets a bit too cute for my tastes in that the last 50 pages of the book we have a litany of "solutions to the case" and while each of them has parts of the mystery solved it is not until the [...]

    17. The second Hercule Poirot novel, published in 1923. 40 more to go! This one has a tad lower rating on than most of the others, and I had a hard time getting into it, but on the whole I really liked it, about a 3.5. Poirot burst onto the literary crime scene almost fully realized, in what was her third published book! He's a great character, with a distinct and interesting personality, an elderly Belgian detective with a flair for logic and simplicity and "exercising the grey cells" in order to [...]

    18. تبا !!لأ حقيقي تبا :Dهكذا بدأت الرواية وهكذا انتهت ايضا، وهذا ما قلته بعد أن انتهتبدأ الأمر باكتشاف جثة صاحب الرسالة التى ارسلها لبوارو طالبا نجدته لاعتقاده انه سيُقتلثم اكتشاف جثة اخرى لرجل مجهول الهويةالجريمة الأولى تشبه جريمة حدثت قبل ٢٠ سنة وبَقى الفاعل حرا طليقاأما عن م [...]

    19. أجاثا كريستي ~ جريمة في ملعب الجولفلا أظن أن أحداً قد خمن النهاية الغريبة لهذه الرواية محيرة ومعقدة ومربكة جداً

    20. Hercule Poirot returns to once again solve a murder, this time of a wealthy Frenchman who seems to have foreseen his death. It’s not about Poirot being smarter than other detectives or about him noticing more details—it’s about his method, his organized way of approaching those details and fitting the theory to the facts rather than the other way around.Contrary to what the title might imply, there is no golf in this book. (Thank God.) Rather, the body turns up in an open grave on the golf [...]

    21. Still 3 stars on this 2nd re-read. While the crime-investigation is exciting and very well constructed (all those layers and layers do make your head spin) the surrounding stories (who loves who and why or why not) really irritated me. I guess that's why I never bothereted re-reading it before.And I never found Captain Hastings so insufferably melodramatic as in this novel. Admittedly this is to make the perfect juxtaposition to Poirot's mind/manners/methods, but it was just too much. I didn't c [...]

    22. This is Agatha Christie's second Poirot novel. In it Poirot rushes of to France after receiving a letter from a Canadian-French multimilionaire who fears for his life. Only to find him murdered when he arrives. Poirot is superb: smart, charming, arrogant and a admirer of strong women. He is working 'his little grey cells'. The plot keeps turning and keeps surprising up to the end. Agatha Christie manages to make all ends meet and in the end, everything is absolutely the most logical sollution. Y [...]

    26. 4 Dame Christie stars! My 3rd Christie, and I think this was the best, as of now. Agatha knows how to build a murder mystery and churn out your gray cells to try matching the renowned expert, Hercule Poirot. The murder here was fantastic in planning and structure, and as always, I failed to put up the right guess (I understand you well, Hastings!)."The great criminal (as you may remember my remarking to you once) is always supremely simple.” And so it was. The victim was there, just there, all [...]
