I didn't realise when I started reading this book that it is a collection of short stories. There are four titles mentioned on the back of the book cover so I thought that it was four stories, one of which was The Hound of Death as per the title of the book.
Turns out that there are quite a few stories in this book in fact. It reminded me, if you are from England and old enough, of Tales of the Unexpected that used to be a TV programme with short "mysteries" in each episode.
I cannot say that I cared for this book, and that feels like an odd thing to say! I have struggled through it starting it back I think in February and only just finishing it today having made an effort to get through it.
I found the stories to be rather odd, they had a tendency to just stop as opposed to finishing if you know what I mean. Perhaps that is supposed to leave the reader to imagine the rest, but I just found it to be frustrating!!!
So, it is another book read and my next two are also by Agatha Christie - I think the next one is called The Mystery of the Blue Train - and then I might have a little break from her work. I really enjoy the Miss Marple books and I somewhat enjoy the Poirot stories, perhaps because they are more familiar from having watched the films and TV shows of the books.
If you like short stories, mysteries and Agatha Christies work this will probably appeal, but if you want a good story to really get into, perhaps not so much. This one, like many of the books that I get given, is off to the charity shop and I can count it as another one "done" and another thing "gone" from the house so although that sounds rather sad, it is good to me!
Well, I am off to do some more reading! Hope you are enjoying whatever you are reading at the moment.
