    1. "To have patience with stupidity is difficult for the quick-witted."Some are great, some less; as it almost always happens with short-stories, after all. Personally, I have a prediliction for Wasps' Nest, while The Third Floor Flat was probably the most unsatisfactory of them all -how could he think he would never be implied in that homicide? TSTL criminals are so not my type.Poirot, on the other hand, is as adorable and brainy as ever. It would be only silly of me to deny that he is the love of [...]

    4. Dari sejak SD, saya merasa tergelitik dengan pertanyaan, "Mana yang lebih hebat, Sherlock Holmes atau Hercule Poirot? Doyle atau Christie?".Ok, kalo yang dibandingkan adalah segi kepopuleran dan pengaruh, maka Holmes sama sekali tak tertandingi. Menurut Guinness Book of Record, karakter Holmes adalah karakter yang paling banyak dimainkan dalam film dibandingkan tokoh apapun. Tercatat lebih dari 70 aktor berperan sebagai dia di lebih dari 200 film. Siapa pula yang tak mengenal cara mengambil kesi [...]

    5. Kao sto naslov kaze, kolekcija kratkih prica koja se bavi slucajevima dok M. Poari nije postao sve poznato ime (pa sem zadnje :P )Iskreno receno dok su slucajevi interesantni kratak format im ne daje da se bas mesta da se razmasu tako da sve bude gotovo pre nego sto se i zgreje stolica dok citas. Ali sitni detalji kako M. Poaro reaguje na sve je ono sto me uvek razgali i bude simpa da se cita dalje.Sem toga nemam sta puno reci, ko voli Poaroa nema sta da izgubi citajuci ovo.

    6. خوبی مجموعه داستان اینه که هر وقت حوصله اش رو داشتی میتونی یه داستان رو بخونی ولی بدی ای هم که داره اینه که هرچه داستان ها کوتاه تر میشن کیفیت و هیجان اونها پایین میاد نسخه اصلی کتاب شامل 17 داستانه که متاسفانه دو داستان از اون ترجمه نشده اندWasps' Nest و Double Sin: که عبارت اند از

    7. It was fun to read these short stories. Some of them were quite interesting and some were just fine and others were just very predictable. I have rated all the stories individually but as a whole this book deserves 3.5 stars in my opinion.

    8. And this ends a long overdue Agatha Christie reading binge. Every one of these short stories presented such a delightful puzzle, I will always enjoy re reading and enjoying them. Poirot and Hastings, and of course AC, never disappoint :)

    9. Kalau mau kenalan awal sama Poirot, buku kumcer ini bisa jadi pilihan yang tepat. Walau di sini, dengan keberadaan Hasting (yang mengingatkan saya pada Watson) agak terasa kemiripan dengan Sherlock Holmes. Beberapa kasus dalam buku ini juga mengingatkan saya pada beberapa kasus Sherlock, seperti misalnya yang Rancangan Kapal Selam sama Pemerasan dengan Surat Lady siapa itu, tapi tentu saja dengan ending mengejutkan khas Agatha Christie. Poirot di sini--seperti kata Mbak Ajjah--seperti bentuk 'pe [...]

    10. Agatha renditi conto che nei racconti (perlomeno in questi) facevi abbastanza pena.Ma questo non cambia nulla fra noi, ok?Con affetto,Emanuele

    11. This collection of short stories are all-together amusing. But they lack the character development and the intricate unfolding of each case that I usually find in Christie's novels. But, still, if you're a fan of hers, it's a definite must-read.

    12. Mostly hits, a couple of misses, many classic Christie stories with the little grey cells on full display. Time spent with Hercule Poirot is always time well spent. I have seen many of these done with David Suchet & it is interesting to contrast the short story with the way the tv portrays it. Hastings is much more a comic foil on tv, and some of the stories become farcical in the hands of the television writers. It is good to go back to the originals and readjust my reading taste buds. High [...]

    13. zbirkakratkih priča s početka karijere najpoznatijeg Belgijanca. Nije vrhunsko djelo, ali otkriva neke zanimljive detalje iz života malog detektiva. Z aljubitelje AC obavezno štvo.

    14. A really nice collection of short stories. Some stories are almost identical to other short stories (The submarine Plans = The Incredible Theft and The Market Basing Mystery = Murder in the Mews) and at least one - The Plymouth Express - is a short version of the Poirot full-length novel The Mystery of the Blue Train. But every story is enjoyable, with Poirot at his best.

    15. Un volum ce cuprinde povestiri scurte care îl au ca personaj principal pe atat de cunoscutul detectiv Hercule Poirot. Un Hercule Poirot tânăr, energic, în plină glorie care se străduie să demosntreze cu fiecare caz mai complicat cât de bine îi funcționează micuțele celule cenușii. Volumul Agathei Cristhie cu titlul " Primele cazuri ale lui Poirot" a apărut la editura Litera în seria " Hercule Poirot" în anul 2015 când s-au împlinit 125 de ani de la nașterea autoarei.

    16. Me ha gustado mucho este compendio de relatos sobre los primeros casos del detective más famoso de la historia de la literatura (después de Sherlock Holmes). Todos en general son buenos, aunque algunos destacan por el final inesperado y los giros argumentales que tanto le gustaban a su autora.Sobra decir que yo, con Agatha Christie, soy incapaz de ser imparcial.

    17. I normally don't enjoy short stories, however, this book felt somehow different to all the others I read and I enjoyed most of the stories.I think some of them would be even better if they were a bit longer, like The Adventure of Jonnhie Waverly and The Veiled Lady. Others were perfect the way they were and managed to keep me holding on and surprise me with the ending even with just a few pages, such as Problem at Sea.Most of them I already knew from the David Suchet's movies, which are so good [...]

    18. I am a huge fan of Agatha Christie. Each story is unique yet familiar, the main characters are developed, idiosyncratic, flawed but appealing. I particularly like these short stories as all my mundane chores can be broken up with a cuppa and a tale. I really enjoy the escapism but feel that I am also being educated as the vocabulary is sublime. Looking forward to my next dose of Poirot already.

    19. Poirot short stories. The ones used for the early ITV David Suchet series.Very, very reminiscent of Conan Doyle. For Holmes and Watson, read Poirot and Capt.Hastings.Good, solid plotting and manipulation of rather stock characters, but enjoyable fun and puzzles.

    20. Surprising as Agatha Christie can be in her books. It's worth reading. This book is a collection of short stories. Hope to read more of Monsieur Hercule Poirot!

    21. A nice collection of 18 short stories featuring Hercule Poirot. Some of the stories also are shared with other book collections by the author. This collection contains the following stories: "The Adventure of Johnnie Waverly," "The Adventure of the Clapham Cook," "The Affair of the Victory Ball,""The Chocolate Box,""The Cornish Mystery,""The Double Clue," "Double Sin,""How Does Your Garden Grow?,""The King of Clubs," "The Lemesurier Inheritance,""Lost Mine,""Market Basing Mystery,""The Plym [...]

    22. Daca fiecare roman al Agathei ar fi rezumat si ar ramane doar la cateva elemente esentiale, atunci am avea volumul asta de povestiri. De placut, mi-a placut. Si cred ca mi-au placut povestirile pentru ca sunt concise, nu mai sunt tehnicile alea plictisitoare. Am remarcat si ca unele povestiri au fost transformate in romane - "Expresul de Plymouth" este 100% "Misterul trenului albastru", de la indicii pana la personaje, desi numele sunt putin schimbate.

    23. This is an entertaining collection of eighteen well written short stories featuring Hercule Poirot. If you haven't read any of Agatha Christie's Poirot stories, then this collection would be a good place to start. I felt that Poirot came over as less arrogant and sure of himself than he is in some of the books and he even tells Hastings about one case where he felt he failed.The stories are narrated by Poirot's friend, Hastings and cover a variety of crimes including murder, kidnapping and theft [...]

    24. " Poirot had a good opinion of Japp's abilities, though deploring his lamentable lack of method, but I, for my part, considered that the detective's highest talent lay in the gentle art of seeking favours under the guise of conferring them ! "---- musings of Captain Hastings in 'the affair at the victory ball' Well that sums it up nicely, doesn't it ? With the neat little revelation that it is Captain Hastings actually who detests Japp more than Poirot, apparently.And by the way, 'Poirot's early [...]

    25. A book to keep at the cabin or to read on vacation. You wont mind if your flight is delayed for twenty minutes because it will give you time enough to read another story. I was struck at how closely modeled these mysteries were on the Sherlock Holmes stories that appeared in the Strand - a fact Christie herself winks at throughout. Good fun with only a few politically incorrect statements to make the 21st century reader squirm a bit, and these are invariably spoken by the unlikable characters an [...]

    26. 4.5 estrellasMe encantaron estas historias cortas de Poirot. Hay de muchos estilos, algunas más sorprendentes que otras, pero todas cuentan con la magistral habilidad del detective para ver en pequeños detalles las pistas para resolver los casos.Destaco El caso del baile de la Victoria, Doble pista, La caja de bombones, Nido de avispas (donde Poirot evita un asesinato) y Problema en el mar.

    27. Agatha Christie's short stories are usually very easy to digest and the eighteen of them in this book is no exception. As hinted by in the review, this is early stories, and combined with being short stories mean that they lack in depth. On the other hand they are each interesting small and amusing puzzles so I don't miss the depth at all.A nice book to have by the bed, for consumption one short story at a time.

    28. Amazing book. It was my first Agatha Christie so my cousin recommended a Poirot one. I fell in love with his way of solving mysteries in the first sorry and now I can't wait to get another of Poirot's books!

    29. A totally enjoyable collection of short stories all staring Hercule Poirot. I limited myself to one story a day to prolong my reading pleasure.

    30. I did not read the whole book, as I have read some of the stories in this book in other Agatha Christie books. I focused on reading those short stories I had not read before, marked with a **The Affair at the Victory BallAfter a Victory Ball, Lord Cronshaw and his girlfriend were found dead: he stabbed in the super room; she, the next day of a cocaine overdose.Poirot is asked to look over the case and works with Inspector Japp to figure out who murdered them. There were costumes and mistaken ide [...]
