But one question strikes me the most – Why does Dr. Sheppard help Hercule Poitrot? Does he misjudge him and thought he won’t be able to solve the mystery?
And above all he helps him diligently. Belle Haliday This answer contains spoilers… view spoiler [ In the last chapter, Sheppard says that he had hoped his story might be published one day as an account of Poirot’s failure thus bringing prestige to …more In the last chapter, Sheppard says that he had hoped his story might be published one day as an account of Poirot’s failure thus bringing prestige to both his crime and himself.
Given that he didn’t recognize Poirot when he first arrived, I think he helped Poirot because he didn’t know how to judge him. Sheppard had reckoned with the police, but Poirot was an outside element. Throughout the inital investigation, he stays close to Poirot’s side, something I think is born of the fact that the police clearly suspect Ralph, but Sheppard can’t be sure what Poirot thinks.
I guess in the end, his helpful nature came from a place of careful fear and blatant egotism. He didn’t think Poirot would unmask him, but he wanted to be in the inner circle on the off chance he did. I have not read any book by Agatha Christie so far.
I’m going to start with this highly rated one. Will these books appeal to me as these are years old and we have seen lot of inspired or similar works in movies.? Jennifer Oberth I would also say yes, they’ll appeal to you. It’s not like trying to read Shakespeare where you need a translation for every line.
I just finished …more I would also say yes, they’ll appeal to you. I just finished reading ‘Mousetrap’ and had no problem following everything and I didn’t struggle to do so. I highly recommend Agatha Christie. And don’t watch that ‘Doctor Who’ episode until you’ve read ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ – spoilers.

This defense is to present what I have come to like in Agatha Christie’s mystery books. My mother used to read Agatha Chr From my November 13, blog http: My mother used to read Agatha Christie to go to ackdoyd every night. Several years ago, she cheistie on to me her extensive and tattered collection of luridly-covered paperbacks.
Some of these books are in such poor condition that I have to carry them in ackroyc zip bags to keep the pages in order. I recently read or re-read about a dozen of them. I am quite ready to admit that Agatha Christie could write a really bad book. My ackroydd for her worst is The Big Fourwhich has something in it to offend everyone. Even the cover below is grotesque. Thankfully and unusually for one of the best-selling authors of all timeThe Big Four does not seem to be print any more.
Also, it is easy to dislike Hercule Poirot.

Even his creator found him difficult. The Wikipedia article on Agatha Christie reports that ” Christie wrote a version of herself into several of her stories in the person of mystery writer and apple-lover Ariadne Oliver.
Oliver on the subject of her own detective: I must have been mad! Why a Finn when I know nothing about Finland? Why all the idiotic mannerisms he’s got?
These things just happen.
