Mini-Review: Sad Cypress (Hercule Poirot #21) by Agatha Christie

433035

Another good, 4-star, mystery from Agatha Christie.  Blah, blah, blah.

I feel like I write the same review for most Christie books and specifically for the Poirot mysteries.  So, instead of reviewing, I’m going to talk about the title itself.

Most of the time there is an aha moment when you’re like “that’s what the title means.”  For Sad Cypress, I didn’t reach that moment and unless I fell asleep I cannot, for the life of me, figure out the title.  It really has nothing to do with the story, the characters or the outcome.  Maybe that’s the mystery here…hmmm….

Has anyone else read this and, if so, can you enlighten me on the meaning of the title?  Thanks!

  1. Agatha Christie would often reference great works that she enjoyed. Sad Cypress is most usually thought to be in regard to Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, “COME away, come away, death,
    And in sad cypress let me be laid,”…or at least that’s my best guess, lol
