    Three Blind Mice was my first Christie It was a fitting introduction to the Queen of Crime s world that would hold me enthralled through my teens Three Blind Mice is not a very long book it does not have to be, because every word in this little novella has purpose no sentence is superfluous or wasted A true master does not need long flowery paragraphs to set the scene, create the right atmosphere, or to bring the characters alive She does not need to ramble on for pages to distract the rea Three Blind Mice was my first Christie It was a fitting introduction to the Queen of Crime s world that would hold me enthralled through my teens Three Blind Mice is not a very long book it does not have to be, because every word in this little novella has purpose no sentence is superfluous or wasted A true master does not need long flowery paragraphs to set the scene, create the right atmosphere, or to bring the characters alive She does not need to ramble on for pages to distract the reader from figuring out the mystery, she just needs to understand human psychology

    Here is a good collection of short stories from the Queen of Crime nothing too taxing on the brain While I find the Miss Marple tales a little too sweet for my taste the Poirot ones are quite entertaining My favourite story is Three Blind Mice, which takes place in an isolated country house during a snow storm Although I prefer the play it became The Mousetrap there are some nice touches of humour amid the drama Here is a good collection of short stories from the Queen of Crime nothing too taxing on the brain While I find the Miss Marple tales a little too sweet for my taste the Poirot ones are quite entertaining My favourite story is Three Blind Mice, which takes place in an isolated country house during a snow storm Although I prefer the play it became The Mousetrap there are some nice touches of humour amid the drama

    Three Blind Mice was my favorite of the stories followed by Third Floor Flat I believe this one was read by David Suchet who is an AMAZING Poirot both those stories get 4 stars, both for story and for narration The others stories were okay, with my least favorite being the 4 Miss Marple stories read by someone who sounded seriously drunk and slurred most of her words, and when you are listening to English actors reading Ms Christie, you want a LITTLEenunciation than what was comin Three Blind Mice was my favorite of the stories followed by Third Floor Flat I believe this one was read by David Suchet who is an AMAZING Poirot both those stories get 4 stars, both for story and for narration The others stories were okay, with my least favorite being the 4 Miss Marple stories read by someone who sounded seriously drunk and slurred most of her words, and when you are listening to English actors reading Ms Christie, you want a LITTLEenunciation than what was coming out of her I needed a distraction from the NetGalley book I am supposed to be reading listening to and am choosing not to because it is total MEH and this was perfect for that Alas, it ended all too soon and so I must go back to the other book Unless I can find another to distract me

    A serviceable read A necessary read for the Christie fan who wants to read it all But the stories here, mostly written and published in the 1920 s are dated Not in a bad way, but in a way that firmly anchors them in the customs and opinions of that time If read with that in mind, they are clever, witty, and often rely on a strange set of facts to solve each However, the title story was never fully explained, IMO, as to its conclusion and I had to sort it out myself Same for a few other A serviceable read A necessary read for the Christie fan who wants to read it all But the stories here, mostly written and published in the 1920 s are dated Not in a bad way, but in a way that firmly anchors them in the customs and opinions of that time If read with that in mind, they are clever, witty, and often rely on a strange set of facts to solve each However, the title story was never fully explained, IMO, as to its conclusion and I had to sort it out myself Same for a few others.So not Ms Christie s best, but even when she was just average in my conceited opinion she was always very good.Three stars

    In the past I ve not been a HUGE Agatha Christie short story fan, but I did enjoy these ones, especially Three Blind Mice which later became The Mousetrap All of these stories were clever, witty and suspense filled Three Blind Mice certainly had me turning the pages to find out who the killer was in that cut off old mansion Good romp through some shorter than usual Christie stories.


  10. Randell Green Randell Green says:

    Mousetrap was fun and scores 4 5 However the rest of the short stories are average at best The stories are between 15 20 pages and feature the typical Poirot Holmes deductions which I tend to find cheesy and lazy.
