I always say that Christie is always a delightful read! And when I find a book that is one of the first that she wrote, but that I hadn't read yet - so all new stories for me! - well, the pleasure is even greater!
Maybe this is not a masterpiece of genius like Murder on the Orient Express or And Then There Were None, and it's a collection of short stories, a type of text that, especially in the mistery kind, does not always fully satisfy me. But, neverthless, it was such a beautiful reading that I wanted to give it the 5 stars!
In general, however, I very much loved the atmosphere that reigned in these pages, this aristocratic world in which there is a book (the Who's Who) where you can find information on everyone, a world in which the servants are usually invisible and nameless, but they're everywhere, and finally a world where you change clothes at every meal (even for tea!)!
And then, as always, I love Christie's style, her always present irony, her always funny dialogues, her always intriguing stories!
