Cards on the Table (Hercule Poirot, #15)Cards on the Table by Agatha Christie

This is another one of those times when the episodes with David Suchet are so strong in my mind, that I think I have read the book, but I didn’t. I was reading a biography of Agatha Christie and when they were speaking of certain plot points in Cards On The Table, I realized that, A. they changed the plot for the TV show and B. I never read it.

I really enjoyed it on several levels. First it was fun to meet the four sleuths in their introductions. The four sleuths in the novel, whom I have enjoyed for many years but it was interesting to read the way she described them for the very first time. And the characters of the four suspects which were pretty much the same, except that they weren’t…I am being circumspect because I don’t want to give too much away, but there are more killings in this book then in the TV show and one of the killings was done in a way I really didn’t expect at all.

Excellent book, I really highly recommend it. It is a lot of fun to watch the other sleuths as opposed to Poirot. As he uses misdirection and psychology to catch the killer.

The Mousetrap and Other PlaysThe Mousetrap and Other Plays by Agatha Christie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I had only read one of the Agatha Christie plays that she had adapted for the stage and that was because I was in it; Murder on the Nile. I was so excited to be in the play and I had the script of just that play, so I had no idea how many of her plays she herself had adapted. The first thing I noticed when I read it, and I was stunned by it, is that she took out Hercule Poirot. She replaced him with Canon Pennyfather from the novel; At Bertram’s Hotel. Because the Cannon was a rather dithering old man very different from the one in the play I was very startled by this, but they were her characters so I figured she could do what she wanted. This play is not in this edition that is why I felt I could talk about it a bit more since I am not giving away anything in the plot so no spoilers here.

This is book is a masterclass on adaption, she gets all the important information in these plays but it is subtly changed to be more suitable for stage. And there are changes, a lot of them, so hold on to your hats if you read the novels.

The three plays I liked best were;  (which is the book; Five Little Pigs.) All the plays in this collection are excellent but these are the plays and novels that touched me most.

The Hollow has the least changes, and my favorites are still Midge and Edward, I am sorry but the rest are really hard for me to really relate to, I just love these two. They are adorable. The detective in it is Inspector Colquohoun with the help of Sergeant Penny who take over the duties of the famous Belgian sleuth they replaced. The mystery is well done, but it is changed so it will take place in one or two rooms. Excellent construction and she somehow gets all the really tense bits in despite the very confined area because of it being on the stage.

The second one is Go Back To Murder, The daughter of Caroline and Amyas is Carla, like the novel not Lucy like the film. It follows the line of the novel except in the play she aided by Justin Fogg (who I find utterly adorable), son of the lawyer who led Caroline Crale’s defense. This play is pretty much the same, but I just love the relationship between Justin and Carla, it is lovely to watch it develop. It is part of Christie’s brilliance I believe that she can create a believable relationship so quickly. They are at odds in the beginning and totally a unit by the end of the play. Again the staging is fascinating, all of Christie’s ideas to use the lighting in order to show the different locations and how the actors should look in the past and in the future. Brilliantly crafted, I can see why she enjoyed writing plays so much, she was really wonderful at it.

And last but not least is Towards Zero, she actually takes out my favorite character, I was disappointed by that but it is a really wonderful play. Again it is pretty much the same plot this time with the same detective, Inspector Battle, the same as the book really but I really just enjoyed the artistry of the transfer to stage she used. Still catching the killer once again in a confined area of the stage. Rather brilliantly managed.

If you’re a playwright and novelist this is the book for you, to learn to adapt your work. If you’re an actor or just appreciate a wonderful play its fascinating. If your Christie fan it is worth it, just to see the changes and the things she does not change. A little bit for everyone!
