    After the Funeral


    29. January 2014 um 15:07

    In (Very)Short: + a Hercules Poirot novel + entertaining, funny, and exiting read + another good Christie + family and inheritance reveal dark and not so dark secrets My Opinion: Yet another good Agatha Christie novel. After the Funeral gives you what you want from a Christie novel: a victim of somewhat questionable repute, a small group of suspects, family secrets to be revealed, a surprising and yet not surprising culprit, and of course Hercule Poirot. After the funeral of Richard Abernethie his sister Cora claims that her brother was murdered. This utterance could be the reason for her sudden gruesome death. The family's solicitor is plagued with suspicion since he does not believe that the day after Cora's remark a burglar just happens to kill her. In order to find out the truth he turns to Hercule Poirot, who starts to investigate. On his way to reveal the culprit Poirot unearths a few secrets. As usual Christie is always a fun and entertaining read. She works according to the same schematic and by now I should probably be able to know the murderer quite early. But I still only manage to get to the solution short before the end, just when I am suppose to and just at that moment when Christie intended. It is the similar mixture as always: all the family members seem to have a motive and keep something from the investigator that makes them even more suspicious. Often it is nothing more than an embarrassing little secre,t which has nothing to do with the murder itself. I would have liked for Poirot to have appeared a little earlier in the narrative, but well I take what I can get. Bottom Line: A good, fun, entertaining, and solid Christie novel with Hercule Poirot as protagonist. You really can't do anything wrong here.
