H is for Hercule Poirot

H
is for Hercule!

For this year's A to Z I'm featuring books I've read based on the Reading Challenge.

Today's book is a book set during Christmas.

For this one, I'm going back to one of my favourite authors to reread (sometimes I even forget whodunit and am pleasantly surprised all over again!), Agatha Christie. There are two I can think of that relate to Christmas: the novel Hercule Poirot's Christmas and the short story collection Hercule Poirot and the Adventure of the Christmas Pudding.


I like this line from the Guardian review quoted in Wikipedia: "In this kind of detective novel, depending almost entirely for its interest on accuracy of logical deduction from recorded fact and yet with the drama played out by recognisable human beings, Mrs. Christie remains supreme."

Do you reread books?

What's your favourite not-necessarily-Christmas-but-set-at-that-time story?
