Five Little Pigs (Paperback) Price: Rs.185

Agatha Christie's ingenious murder mystery, reissued with a striking new cover designed to appeal to the latest generation of Agatha Christie fans and book lovers.

Beautiful Caroline Crale was convicted of poisoning her husband, yet there were five other suspects: Philip Blake (the stockbroker) who went to market; Meredith Blake (the amateur herbalist) who stayed at home; Elsa Greer (the three-time divorcee) who had roast beef; Cecilia Williams (the devoted governess) who had none; and Angela Warren (the disfigured sister) who cried 'wee wee wee' all the way home.

It is sixteen years later, but Hercule Poirot just can't get that nursery rhyme out of his mind…

A Quintessential Christie Read!

A murder has been committed. The beautiful and charming Caroline Crale is convicted of poisoning her husband, the enigmatic womanizer Amyas Crale, who was to leave her for another woman. However, their only daughter is convinced that her mother is innocent and seeks M. Hercule Poirot's help in proving so. Poirot accepts and starts his investigation. However, before he can establish the facts, he must consider one giant obstacle lying in his path, both the victim and his murderess is dead.

Not unlike Christie's other novels 'Five Little Pigs' follows the 'who dunnit' formula. There is a murder, one muder(ess)and five key eye-witnesses. However, what makes it different from her other novels is the fact, that the same events are told from many different stand points. The five eye-witnesses along with the prosecution, the defense and the police superintendent involved with the case give their personal impressions of Mr. and Mrs. Crale and the detailed account of the tragic event occurred sixteen years ago. A gripping narrative, diverse yet equally interesting characters and a certain determined Christie in the guise of Poirot give way to an end which might be a little unconvincing but thoroughly satisfying. A curious mix of drama, romanticism and character psychology, 'Five Little Pigs' sees Christie in one of her highest literary forms and is a 'jolly good read' and more.

As for the services offered by Flipkart, I received my book in less than 24 hours, in excellent condition and within a reasonable price as well.

So, bottomline : Well, the title of this review says it all.

Poirot's one of the best

Do I need to tell about the awesomeness of Monsieur Hercule Poirot! Just love the way how he puts in the facts and deductions based on his observations which one cannot even think of. That is because he is Hercule Poirot and there is nothing that can be kept away from Hercule Poirot. At first, I thought there were similar references to Agatha Christie's first book "Mysterious Affair at the Styles".! But it turned out to be another thriller. Hats off Christie!!

One among the Must Reads in Christie's collection

The story is a bit slow in the begining but the way Poirot unfolds the truth is awesome. The story has never given a chance to identify the original murder(er/ess)till the end .

The character of "Caroline Carle" is viewed from different angles of different people.

Five Little Pigs

This one is simply amazing. At first, looks like a slow moving story, but gains speed with every page turned. Great mastery at narration revealed, and a good storyline laid down. Keep you in the story till the end. The character of "Caroline Carle" is viewed from different angles of different people. Reveal kind of human psychology. Must read for murder mystery lovers.

Simply amazing....

Wasn't sure at first as the title sounded lame but the book is full of suspense. NOT predictable so hold back all the guesses till the end. Nice book, well written, a very good story.
Also, delivered to me before the expected date of delivery. Great service from flipkart.

Not a convincing story

For a Hercule Poirot book,this was unusually boring to read.Not so realistic and many questions arise even after the end.
