The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding

Name: The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding
Hercule Poirot #35
Author: Agatha Christie.
Published: 24 October 1960.
Genre: Crime Novel.
Number of Pages: 256.


This book actually is a collection of six small stories. For me personally length of each story is just perfect although this particular stories often lacks the depth but they are easy and interesting to read.
Six stories that this book is comprised of are
The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding.
Story lacks the depth but not that bad. I would still give it 3 out of 5.
The Mystery of the Spanish Chest.
If you haven't read Othello, read it first. About the story it is a bit better than the previous one. 
3.5 out of 5 

The Under Dog
A bit too stretched but it was good enough. 3.5 out of 5.

Four and Twenty Blackbirds
Seemed to me the criminal was rather incautious.This one not that enjoyable still I think 3 out of 5.

The Dream
This one is a bit interesting, somewhat new. I say 4 out 5. 
Greenshaw's Folly
This story is not of the series of Hercule Poirot stories rather Miss Marple one. It pretty much is like a typical Miss Marple story wasn't that bad though. 3 out 5.
