The Hollow
The Hollow: A Hercule Poirot Mystery | Agatha Christie
45 posts | 46 read | 23 to read
A far-from-warm welcome greets Hercule Poirot as he arrives for lunch at Lucy Angkatells country house. A man lies dying by the swimming pool, his blood dripping into the water. His wife stands over him, holding a revolver. As Poirot investigates, he begins to realize that beneath the respectable surface lies a tangle of family secrets and everyone becomes a suspect.

Finished this book on my walk today and really enjoyed it. Poirot seems a little more fallible here.

First walk today was hot and muggy; then it rained, and my evening walk had a nice breeze to it.

At six thirteen a.m. on a Friday morning Lucy Angkatell‘s big blue eyes opened upon another day and, as always, she was at once wide awake and began immediately to deal with the problems conjured up by her incredibly active mind.

This book was full of twists and turns. Just like any other true Agatha Christie novel. I love reading Agatha Christie‘s books when it features Hercule Poirot. It was the perfect read to kick off the summer season. It definitely had a summer feel to it. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I love that the facsimile editions are exact replicas of the original publications, right down the price markers. The Hollow in 1946 would have be. 8s. 6. Which in today‘s money would be about (d8.60!! How expensive is that? History constantly fascinates me. How much wages would an average person at the time have to save up for a copy... my goodness! #agathachristie #dameagathachristie #history #christieclub #agathachristieclub #booklover #bookish

Finally finished a book this month! This wasn‘t terrible but it left me a little dissatisfied with the end. Poirot also wasn‘t really “on the case” just happened to be apart of it I guess?! Still happy to have finished it.

It's been years since I last read an Agatha Christie novel, and I Just noticed How I missed It!
I've joined a Brazilian bookclub and we're going to read one book a month starting january, but we decided to warm things up this month Reading The hollow. I never read this one, It was short but quite different from what I remember, but It was really good! I couldn't, find out the murderer, and the ending was really surprising and satisfying!

Cinfhen Yay for bookclub!!! 2y

My first Christie read and I was not disappointed. I loved everything about this book; the details, the ending, the characters. According to the other reviews I'm afraid of reading another book in case it didn't turn out as exciting.

Christie writes such beautiful books. with her the detective mystery is simply a tool to do what an author should truly do - explore humans in all their virtue and vices.
