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!

by Agatha Christie

Hercule Poirot decides it is maybe time to retire. But not before he solves twelve more mysteries all based on the Twelve Labors of Hercules.

The Labors of Hercules is the most clever book of Poirot short stories I have come across. I never got the feeling the stories were unnaturally condensed, and the parallels to the tales of Hercules were magnificently drawn. I enjoyed each one of them immensely, and that doesn't usually happen for me with a book of short mystery stories. If you're looking to get your feet wet with Agatha Christie, this would be a fine place to start!
