    One thought on “Dumb Witness”

    1. The Hercule Poirots, my friend, need only to sit back in a chair and think If I started listing all the reasons why I can t do without Agatha Christie and her Poirot in my life, you d probably reach through the screen thumbing your nose at all known laws of physics because, well, I m sure you could recite them all by heart by now I am very aware I can be that obnoxious So I won t I ll indulge my dark side and simply tell you why I didn t enjoy Dumb Witness also known with the far appetizing tit [...]

    2. Seventy year old Miss Emily Arundell wasn t looking forward to the Easter weekend when her family would descend on her She knew they were all interested in a slice of her vast fortune they had been told in no uncertain terms to wait until she died But when she left her room in the dead of night unable to sleep, Emily tripped at the head of the stairs and tumbled to the bottom After being checked over by her niece s husband who was a doctor, it was found her only injuries were bruises and shock E [...]

    3. This book is really important to me now But not because of the story So this review will be drastically biased, and I will explain why in a moment.If you follow my reviews, it s no surprise to you that I am a super Christie fan, and yes, I ll admit, in my experience reading her books she can do no wrong Every book I ve read has been fantastic or at least worth reading I love her style, her characters, and her in general I actually have a poster of her on my wall, no word of a lie.This book was n [...]

    4. Hastings, a crime is a pot that boils and seethes and every now and then a significant fact comes to the surface and can be seen There is something in the depths there yes, there is something I swear it by my faith in Hercule Poirot, I swear it PoirotPoirot Loses a Client is the original title of this mystery, and he does, but Christie decided later to call it Dumb Witness Hercule Poirot 16, rolling right along here in honor of a dog named Peter, her beloved dog, and another, fictional, dog name [...]

    5. Agatha Christie, as usual, weaves a good tale This one is unusual as a dog is one of the characters and even has a speaking part For a dog lover, it s a great addition to the normal all human mystery plot.I had early on in my rereading of Dumb Witness remembered who the murderer was, but I couldn t remember the exact reason Oh, the obvious one was there but the underlying motivation, the driving emotion, now that continued to elude me right until the end Knowing who the murderer was, I looked fo [...]

    6. How can I not love a book with a passage like this There was a parking area in the middle of the big square, though there were only a few cars occupying it I duly parked the Austin, Poirot divested himself of his superfluous garments, and assured himself that his moustaches were in their proper condition of symmetrical flamboyance, and we were then ready to proceed Page 42 Or a passage like this I don t know why dogs always go for postmen, I m sure, continued our guide It s a matter of reasoning [...]

    7. How lightly and easily you put the matter aside Let me tell you that no matter is finished with until Hercule Poirot ceases to concern himself with it The quite famous detective, Poirot, has just received a letter from a client who fears for her life She is desperately afraid that someone in her family may attempt to harm her The only problem is, by the time the letter reaches Poirote client is already dead Now Poirot must work backwards and try to piece together all the conflicting information [...]

    8. LOVED ITThis is a story of a Miss Arundell who had an accident but was convinced that somebody had tried to murder her After a few days she actually dies but a few days before her death she d written to a real known detective about how she was in danger but the letter wasn t sent when she was alive.I ve never read any of Agatha Christie s book but have obviously known about her and now I know why her books are so frikin famous cause this book was absolutely amazing and it literally keeps you hoo [...]

    9. I think it s absurd how people were blaming a dog on Emily Arundell s horrible accident Bob is a god damn dog Don t blame him However, that s not the cherry on top of this dessert, nope Emily believes that one of her relatives is trying to kill her.In the end, she writes to Detective Poirot for help but he receives the letter too late Emily is already dead Now Dumb Witness provides you a short list of suspects that are hungry for money or just ya know, hungry because of Bob the dog However, it i [...]

    10. There would be many mystery writers but none of them come close to Agatha Christe, We have already read and reviewed And then there were none , Murder on the Orient Express The ABC Murders I wanted to grab this book for a long time as the title and blurb are really intriguing.Please read the full review on my blog Dumb Witness by Agatha Christie Book reviewThis book is amazing I love the suspense and plot The Poirot s way of detecting is something very interesting to read, which you want to read [...]

    11. This book was also published under the title Dumb Witness in 1937 which is when Agatha Christie was in her prime The story is narrated by Captain Hastings who plays Watson to Poirot s Holmes excellently.Emily Arundell is an elderly lady living in the small English village of Market Basing with her companion, two servants, and several greedy heirs The family comes to visit Aunt Emily during the Easter holiday and to try and get her to part with some of her money During the visit Miss Emily has an [...]

    12. Diverting and enjoyable This was probably the most straightforward of the Christie books I ve read, and it worked very nicely for most of the way through And the solution wasn t ridiculously stupid, like with Murder on the Orient Express, or And Then There Were None Basically, the setup is that a woman has an accident where she falls down the stairs She suspects the accident was than an accident and does what anyone would do under the circumstances she disinherits her whole family and writes a [...]

    14. Poirot receives a rambling letter from a woman, which tells him absolutely nothing at all But there is one curious feature to this letter It was written two months ago This arouses Poirot s curiosity and he pays the woman a visit, only to discover that she died a while after writing the letter, apparently of natural causes Murder No, says Hastings Yes, says Poirot And we know which of them we would believe I really enjoyed this book, though the solution was obvious once Poirot begins his investi [...]

    15. What a delightful read I d forgotten how good Christie s books are I ve been reading too many modern detective stories I m planning to go back and read and reread Christie s titles once in a while, just to remember.This was a good read The title could refer to Bob the dog, but as I finished the book I realized it could also refer to Poirot s client a dead woman Poirot receives a letter months after it is written and the writer has died in the meantime Was it deliberately mailed late or merely fo [...]

    16. A pretty dull Christie, even with Hastings The plot is quite clever but takes awhile to start and none of the characters leap from the page as they do in the best Poirot s There wasn t enough depth of human emotion for me.

    17. Dumb Witness is another clever and highly enjoyable Poirot mystery, narrated by the trusty Mr Hastings One of the set ups Christie seems especially good at or maybe it s just that I have a preference for it is the mystery contained in one household or family Each member of the family and the closest acquaintances of the family both having motives for killing someone off, and having secrets they try to keep hidden but which of course end up being discovered by Hercule Poirot in the end The story [...]

    18. Bob the dog is probably the best thing about this book But really, this is probably one of my favorites of Christie s Poirot books.

    19. I found this to be a thoroughly enjoyable yet mind challenging read The Queen of mystery did it again and yes maybe not as neat as in the evidence department but enough to keep you guessing Another one I didn t get 4.75 Stars

    21. delicioso ler Agatha Christie e apesar de falarem que um Sherlock Holmes sob a tica feminina, acho que n o bem isso.Poirot, que seria o dito Sherlock Holmes, um investigador mais p no ch o e sem super poderes, que n o entende l grandes coisas de v rios campos do conhecimento mas tem uma percep o muito forte Vive cheio de d vidas e tira conclus es bem perto do final das hist rias Diria eu que ele est mais para um Scooby Doo com mais seriedade do que um Holmes escrito por uma mulher.Falando em Sco [...]

    22. 3.5 stars The dog hunts rabbits Hercule Poirot hunts murderers Christie s style is something I enjoy a lot, but I think this book wasn t the right one to read after the exceptional And Then There Were None I stumbled upon this at the library and the order of the series was pretty vague or absent on the cover, I think , so I figured out I d just get this book and read it Now, I think I should have started with the first book in the series or with another one that has a subject that is suited for [...]
