    Hercule Poirot is just fun Agatha Christie is clever and intriguing I ve been fascinated by her stories since I was a teenager Evil Under the Sun is a great story not quite her best, but certainly in the top 10 After reading the book, I watched the movie adaption given some of the actors playing the roles You should read and then watch, too who doesn t love to compare This story is good lots of little twists and turns The plot is a bit macabre There are several angles you think it will take In the end, I was close to figuring it out, but only because I ve read hundreds of mysteries at this point A good start for a new Poirot reader About Me For those new to me or my reviews here s the scoop I read A LOT I write A LOT And now I blog A LOT First the book review goes on Goodreads, and then I send it on over to my WordPress blog at where you ll also find TV Film reviews, the revealing and introspective 365 Daily Challenge and lots of blogging about places I ve visited all over the world And you can find all my social media profiles to get the details on the who what when where and my pictures Leave a comment and let me know what you think Vote in the poll and ratings Thanks for stopping by Note All written content is my original creation and copyrighted to me, but the graphics and images were linked from other sites and belong to them Many thanks to their original creators.

    What better way to spend a holiday afternoon than reading an Agatha Christie novel Miss Marple or Hercule Poirot it does not matter.Evil Under the Sun is Poirot and the little man is on holiday too His holidays are always like work though as he always seems to discover murdered bodies wherever he goes This one is a beautiful woman on a beach and there are plentiful suspects among the hotel guests.Christie throws in red herrings aplenty and I completely swallowed one of them and came nowhere near guessing the murderer as a result Maybe my brain was on holiday too Who cares It was a light, entertaining and totally enjoyable read.

    Even on a holiday Poirot finds himself in middle of a murder mystery It appears that it is destined that this Belgian cannot have a peaceful holiday The plot is brilliant for the way in which the woman is murdered and alibi for the culprit Unlike other Poirot novels, there are three strong suspects and when at the end with a flourish Poirot unravels the plot and rising to the challenge of the murderer makes him confess, you are left satisfied at the justice delivered Interesting read

    4.25 stars I was just recommending this book to a friend in another Agatha Christie thread and noticed that I had only rated this 3 stars What the heck, self I m not really a big Poirot fan, but this was an excellent murder mystery with a particularly intricate and twisty resolution.The setting is an expensive, exclusive vacation resort in Devon, on the coast of southern England Besides Hercule Poirot, there are only about a dozen guests at the hotel The victim one of the hotel guests, a flirtatious newlywed woman who is found dead on an isolated beach in a cove, strangled to death Whodunnit There s a pretty good 1982 movie version of this book starring Peter Ustinov as Poirot.

    Nowadays, no one believes in evil It is considered, at most, a mere negation of good Evil, people say, is done by those who know no better who are undeveloped who are to be pitied rather than blamed But, M Poirot, evil is real It is a fact I believe in Evil as I believe in Good It exists It is powerful It walks the earth He stopped His breath was coming fast He wiped his forehead with his handkerchief and looked suddenly apologetic I m sorry I got carried away Rev LanePoirot 23 take place at the Jolly Roger resort The startling man magnet of the summer is former actress Arlena Stuart who, soon after things get under way, is found lying face down on the beach And everyone has had a reason to kill her Women hate her, especially the wives of men who follow Arlena, drooling Men like Patrick Redfern, married to poor Christine who has to stand by humiliated while her husband spends all of his time sneaking around with Arlena So Arlena s husband has a good reason to kill her, too Is this a case of turning the tables on a femme fatale Arlena s step daughter is studying witchcraft There s been others strangled in the area in the past few years Is it in fact evil that exists under the sun Fortunately Hercule Poirot is also vacationing at the Jolly Roger, eh wot What a coincidence But no joke, there s a satisfying resolution to this mystery, well done.The quotation I opened with has Rev Lane focusing on evil, but then there is, not surprisingly, given the title, a lot of musing about evil, even from Poirot I hadn t seen it very often in Christie I thought it might have to do with the word coming in fashion around the world because of Hitler the book was published in 1941 But Christie avoids direct references to politics in her writing, usually She s writing entertainments But her commentary on evil is actually a feminist point, which I will only hint at because it is a little spoilerish She through Poirot wants to make a commentary about what people assume about very beautiful people such as Arlena being bad or even evil because they look or dress in a certain way I liked that part of the resolution a lot, actually.This is a slightly higher rated Poirot than others on Goodreads, I see, and I agree with that assessment I liked this one quite a bit

    One arranges very methodically the pieces of the puzzle one sorts the colours and then perhaps a piece of one colour that should fit in with say, the fur rug, fits in instead in a black cat s tail Yes This is my Poirot, the one and only I am so happy could cry Certainly the best crime novel I ve read in a long while Genius, this is simple genius I adored the solution to pieces utterly brilliant Something I can t put my finger on what exactly in the carrying out of the investigation was not 100% to my liking, but whatever it is, it s really minor This crime deserves all the stars.

    All Agatha Christie readers by now know that Hercule Poirot can t go on vacation without a murder popping up This time the detective has retreated to a mini island thing sort of with history, and he finds himself trying to solve the crime of a woman who uses her charms to lure in men Or does she I like how he twisted a misconception of woman who lure and trick men into something else at the end Never guessed the guilty culprit, which is a pleasant surprise for a mystery The author tends to follow the formula of having the least suspected, but really all of them was least expected except for the husband There was a mislead here and there to keep it interesting.Despite the cove and vacation spot being cut off from the inland a bit, it lacks a truly secluded and cut off feel that you had with And Then There Were None or Murder in the Orient Express types Cops and help came in easily to the vacation spot, after all, and for awhile the detectives assume someone who is not one of the vacationing guests could be responsible.The book has fun with gossips wagging their tongues and strange romantic ties on the side, including a stepdaughter who may eye magic in an old fashioned way As always I m impressed by how Christie does her characters and reveals the genuine honesty of human flaws, such as people using looks to trick others and get ahead Despite being another good mystery and having my favorite detective grace the pages, it wasn t as enjoyable as some of her other greats Poirot is his usual marvel, but he seems almost in the background sometimes and keeps some comments to himself The characters gossiping and general lives didn t suck me in as much as some of her other fiction did either, but still another recommended Christie enjoyment.
