Book Description

June 6 2011 Hercule Poirot Mysteries
The Queen of Mystery has come to Harper Collins! Agatha Christie, the acknowledged mistress of suspense—creator of indomitable sleuth Miss Marple, meticulous Belgian detective Hercule Poirot, and so many other unforgettable characters—brings her entire oeuvre of ingenious whodunits, locked room mysteries, and perplexing puzzles to Harper Paperbacks. Time is ticking away for a murderer in Christie’s classic, The Clocks, as Poirot investigates the strange case of a corpse surrounded by numerous timepieces in a blind woman’s house.

Review

“Hercule Poirot is one of those rare fictional characters who came to shape my thinking as both a lawyer and a crime novelist.” (James Grippando, New York Times bestselling author of the Jack Swyteck Novels)

“Here is the grand-manner detective story in all its glory.” (New York Times Book Review)

“Christie addicts will cherish this book. Total absorption is guaranteed.” (Sunday Times (London))

From the Back Cover

Sheila Webb expected to find a respectable blind lady waiting for her at 19 Wilbraham Crescent—not the body of a middle-aged man sprawled across the living room floor. But when old Miss Pebmarsh denies sending for her in the first place, or of owning all the clocks that surround the body, it’s clear that they are going to need a very good detective.

“This crime is so complicated that it must be quite simple,” declares Hercule Poirot. But there’s a murderer on the loose, and time is ticking away.…

3.0 out of 5 stars Not One of Christie's Best May 21 2008
By MC
Format:Audio CD
I was intrigued by this mystery for two reasons: Hercule Poirot and the idea of the clocks. Unfortunately, Poirot appears only briefly and is not particularly well portrayed. The investigation itself is overly complicated has to do with everything but the clocks, and I was not particularly fond of the reader. Overall, this would likely be a dissapointing read for anyone looking to sink their teeth into a Poirot mystery.

5.0 out of 5 stars Trust No Clue (hehe) July 5 2004
Format:Bonded Leather
The first time I read this novel, I had to reread it again. Why? So many questions still linger at the end of the story even though the pages has ended. I wondered and reread and after the third reading, I finally got it all.
The Clocks is a story that has two main plots, and the one has absolutely nothing to do with the other. But they were connected in a way when a young typist finds a dead body in a livingroom of a blind woman. From there it's red herring all the way. But bits of real clues emerge when Mr Lamb (a fake name) talks to a girl with a broken leg.
Poirot only comes in now and then but became more interested when another murder occurs, while Lamb becomes Poirot's legs, ears and eyes. Oh yes, there are clues aplenty, but a broken high heel has never been this important as a clue.
Christie delivers this story with delightful take that neither too wordy nor too lengthy. This is another often neglected classic Christie, so get it.

3.0 out of 5 stars An Easy Read Falls Flat Dec 28 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
A stenographer stumbles onto an unlikely murder scene and Poroit is called upon to investigate--but not, I'm afraid, with greatly entertaining results. Although an "easy read," THE CLOCKS is a weak novel, over-plotted, slightly confusing, flat in tone, and it has a rather uninspired (and to a certain degree rather obvious) solution. The undemanding may enjoy it, but it does not rank among Christie's finest. A mediocre effort at best.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but not good enough April 17 2001
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have read most of Agatha's books and this one was rather disappointing. It had a really good plot and I was pleased with it but I felt that it wasn't as well written as the others. The character Colin, just seems washy. And the only decent character was poirot.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good March 27 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The story is good! I read this book in one day actually. I saw 2 problems: one is that sometimes I got confused with the characters, trying to remember who they are when they're mentioned in the end of the book, and the other problem is the ending, I think there are some details missing about how it all happened. She throws a lot of information in a few pages, but doesn't really tell how it all happened.
