by Agatha Christie
Shortly after Hercule Poirot leaves his dentist's office, the dentist is found shot in an apparent suicide after a dental mistake kills a patient. But Poirot is unconvinced and leaves no stone unturned in an effort to prove murder.
One, Two, Buckle My Shoe contains the most complicated plotting I think I have seen in a Christie novel so far. I had a hard time believing Poirot's celebrated description of his methods and conclusions this time around. It was a little too convoluted for me. It's pretty ingenious, but I had a little trouble following it.
As much as I love Agatha Christie, I have to say that taking in ten of them nearly back to back may not be a highly recommended method of reading her books. I think I have three left to finish out the Anything Agatha Challenge, then I'll give her a respite. :-)
NOTICE: (Updated March 5, 2010)
Beginning December 19, 2009, Books 'N Border Collies will be posting but only intermittently while I pursue personal goals. I plan to share some reading I'm doing, but there will be no reviews. I will, however, be sharing my exploration of vegetarian cooking and the cookbooks and websites I use to educate myself. I hope you enjoy it!
