    I had a feeling this one was familiar to me. Turns out I had read this one before, but I really enjoyed it once more. I love the premise of this story and really wish it had a full length novel dedicated to it.

    Not much of a story if I have to judge sincerely.

    Enjoyed it, especially as the version I 'read' was narrated by Hugh Fraser whose reading I like (as well as his portrayal of Hastings on TV). It seemed to come to an end too soon for me though, a trend I'm finding in these 'Listerdale Mystery' short stories. Still, a pleasant enough way to make a short journey more interesting.

    Если бы мне подсунули этот рассказ без обложки, я бы без сомнений приняла его за раннего Вудхауза.

    Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books... 1 star... This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future. 2 stars... This book was not very good, and I won't be reading any more from the author. 3 stars... This book was ok, but I won't go out of my way to read more, But if I find another book by the author for under a dollar I'd pick it up. 4 sta Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books... 1 star...

I really enjoyed this book and will definitely be on the look out to pick up more from the series/author. 5 stars... I loved this book! It has earned a permanent home in my collection and I'll be picking up the rest of the series and other books from the author ASAP.

    I don't really know what I was expecting. It's a short story. It's not a novel. The problem is that I read this book right after I read And Then There Were None and my expectations for The Girl in the Train was set really high. When I finished this short story, I was so disappointed. It had none of the suspense or twists like the longer book. I know I should not be comparing the two. This short story was just okay.

    The story is not that good: there are too many coincidences and the characters (mainly the main character George) tend to just go with the flow without asking himself questions which I find a bit annoying. I don't seem to be the "let's try and find an adventure today" type of person. Too bad because I usually really like Christie's stories.

    This is my first Agatha Christie read, and it surprised me in the best way. I didn't think I was a "mystery" person, but I loved this story! It amazes me how she adds so much characterization in such a short story; I really liked George!

    At USD 0.80 only from amazon.com, the story could be a life saver for someone stuck in the end-of-the-month grueling traffic like me this evening ; it took me more than 2 hours to cover just a few kilos back home (sigh)

    A mystery that is treated like a mystery but in the end was not a mystery. Or was it?

    A dash of humour and sprinkling of romance makes this such a jolly read... Deviating from her usual whodunit
