Mini-Review: Elephants Can Remember (Hercule Poirot #37) by Agatha Christie

7924295

By Book 37 a series is bound to lose steam.  While the Poirot installments in the late 60s and early 70s aren’t at the same level as the earlier books, they are still quite enjoyable.

There are a couple of timeline issues in Elephants Can Remember and, sadly, I figured out the twist pretty early on (which doesn’t happen often with Christie’s writing.)  But, I liked Ariadne Oliver as Poirot’s sidekick.  Has anyone else read this one?  Did Christie loosely base this character on herself – she is a writer, hates praise, doesn’t want to speak at public functions, etc.

Overall, fun and easy to read but not very memorable.  3.5/5 stars.
