    Pdf/E–pub Closed Casket: The New Hercule Poirot Mystery Apparently, the Agatha Christie Estate had authorized Sophie Hannah to write Christie like mystery novels featuring Ms Christie's famed creation, Hercule Poirot. Let me tell you, "Agatha Christie like" stories ain't Agatha Christie. Normally, if a book, any book, doesn't grab me after 60 75 pages, I put it down and forget about it, which I should have done with "Closed Casket", but I forged on with this one to

    Pdf/E–pub Closed Casket: The New Hercule Poirot Mystery There is far too little Poirot in this novel and far too much 'detecting' is done outside the pages of the book. This is the second of Hannah's Poirot novels I've read and the last I will.This book confirms what I have always felt: If you have any favorite series where the creators have died and you want , I'd say to go back and reread the

    S. Hannah ↠ 2 Summary Characters » PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ↠ S. Hannah Download Closed Casket: The New Hercule Poirot Mystery If you were going to sell a book using a Christie character, surely you'd do your homework?

    Apparently not. Watch me now, I have done research for this complaining review than Hannah does for her whole book.

    Poirot is a parody of himself an achievement, really, when Christie wrote him as a caricature in the first place. In Christie's works he is egotistical, certainly, but it is well founded egotism always. In Christie's bo

    S. Hannah ↠ 2 Summary Characters » PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ↠ S. Hannah Download Closed Casket: The New Hercule Poirot Mystery This was very disappointing read ; tedious and verbose, most unlike Christie's writing style. The drawn out, lengthy conversations between the central characters on page after page became extremely tiring to read, and the final explanation was something of a cop out, with a thoroughly unbelievable motive. Worst of all, there was not one likeable character, and Christie's books always had those, even if they were flawed at times. P

This novel is the second new Poirot story written by Sophie Hannah I haven t read Hannah s other works but I have read The Monogram Murders the first novel she wrote with Poirot I don t know if it s a feature of her work in general but those two novels share many inelegant commonalities the plot device of inauthentic contrived conversations that are conveniently overheard and misunderstood chapters that ramble on about some event in the past that somehow set up the current situation and epicycles upon epicycles of complications that contribute nothing beyond padding out the book length and artificially obscuring the mystery s solutionThe writing in the book is fine unremarkable but not terribly distracting Christie s dialogue was workmanlike but had a parsimonious efficiency to it Here characters just ramble on uninterestingly The writing outside dialogue isn t much better Catchpool is apparently psychic When he s in conversations we re told that his interlocutors speak as if they re concealing a secret or that they re boiling with rage or have some other emotion or concern Yet there s nothing in the conversation itself to indicate that fact and the reader isn t given any physical description or actions to corroborate it We re just flat out told rather than shown what people think That s poor writing in general but it s damning in a mystery novel The reader should be drawing his own conclusions about the characters instead we re dependent on Catchpool not just for the facts of the case but also their interpretationThe mystery itself has some compelling points Without revealing any spoilers you can clearly tell what part of the solution was the hook the author set for the story and it s indeed worth basing a novel on which I would not have said about the scenario in its predecessor It s a clever setup although its execution is not worthy of itI gave up trying to solve the mystery about halfway through I lost confidence in the author s ability to tell a compact self contained story without a revelation three uarters of the way through the book that some of the characters had a heretofore unrevealed secret backstory with the murder victim That happened in the predecessor to this novel and it happened in the current one as well A murder mystery is supposed to be a puzzle for the reader to solve With Catchpool s magical insights spoiling the current investigation and the unknowable backstory spoiling the murder itself it s not a fair game Instead of solving the mystery I just patiently waited for the ending for the author to pull some arbitrary solution out of her hat That solution had some gaping holes in it for example without introducing spoilers the murder has no reason to be carrying around the murder weapon and the novel lampshades this fact but it or less makes sense It s not completely satisfying but it s a definite improvement over the solution of the Monogram MurdersSo how is the book overallAs a reincarnation of Poirot it feels clunky and fake There s no real need for Poirot to even be in the novel what little characterization occurs is mostly of Catchpool the Hastings substituteAs a reincarnation of Agatha Christie it s just not up to the task It feels like an ersatz knockoff someone who s copied a few of the mannerisms but missed the whole point of the writingAs a revival of a Golden Age style murder mystery it s a respectable effort It s not great but I didn t feel cheated after reading it It s bloated and needlessly complex and the author ruins a genuinely good idea with tedious backstories and complications for the sake of complications Christie at her best was a master of economy the story fit together like a jigsaw puzzle with no unnecessary pieces and no need to artificially shove pieces together Hannah didn t meet that standard With a better editor not just a copy editor though the dialogue could use some work but someone to polish down the story to its deserving essentials she could have had a good story As it stands it s a decent but unspectacular one I don t feel cheated or disappointed for it but in retrospect I should have just read the first and last chaptersThe book is decent enough that I ll read Hannah s next Poirot novel but I wouldn t recommend this one If Hannah improves in future stories I d recommend readers just skip to the later books in the series If she doesn t improve I d recommend readers avoid her novels altogether This novel is just mediocre
