    1. EXCERPT:"I may," said Poirot in a completely unconvinced tone, "be wrong."Morton smiled. "But that doesn't often happen to you?""No. Though I will admit - yes, I am forced to admit - that it has happened to me.""I must say I'm glad to hear it! To be always right must be sometimes monotonous.""I do not find it so," Poirot assured him.ABOUT THE BOOK: Hercule Poirot is called on to investigate the murder of a brother and sister in this classic from the Queen of Mystery.When Cora Lansquenet is savag [...]


    2. from my blog, where it is much easier to give links, pictures and half-stars at clsiewert.wordpress/2015/Goodness, but I’m a reading disaster when it comes to Christie books. At one point in After the Funeral, I felt I knew who the murderer was, and when I flipped to check if I was right (oh, the horror!)–yes, I did that—I was. But I got no pleasure out of my powers of deduction, as I’m almost positive I’ve read this at least once before. Possibly twice. So that’s a sad statement of [...]


    3. " Moartea este definitivă, nu există nici o viață după moarte. Nici un mort nu se întoarce înapoi pe pământ. Este un vechi adevăr - că orice om are ceva de ascuns. Asta este valabil pentru noi toți."


    4. I used to make fun of Scooby Doo and how the gang would unmask the villain at the end, specifically how the villain would inevitably and hurriedly admit to the crime. Then I started reading Agatha Christie's books and I realized where they picked up the habit.Now, don't get me wrong, Christie's mysteries are wonderful reads. So much fun! I especially love Hercule Poirot. It's a shame it takes such a long time for him to show up in After the Funeral. Much of the groundwork is laid out by a lawyer [...]


    5. Agatha Christie’s #30 Hercule Poirot mystery is the work of a writer that at this point knows her craft so well that she can do it almost in her sleep. And this story has a lot of sleep in it, and dreams. And a couple of funerals. I preferred the original title, After the Funeral, because it speaks to the more serious literary tone of this book (compared to the more comic tone she often seems to be going for, that would match Funerals are Fatal, which isn’t exactly accurate, as you are led t [...]



    6. Ah Poirot, how I enjoy you with your funny egg shaped head, your sleek moustaches and your willingness to embrace the rampant racism present in the average Englishman all in the pursuit of a tricksy murderer. This lovely hardcover facsimile edition has been sitting on my shelf for a while waiting to be read and it's really a very enjoyable Poirot whodunnit.We have a stately home reaching the end of it's life along with the owner, a death swiftly followed by a second and a small cast of eccentric [...]


    7. The story starts after the funeral of Richard Abernethie, when his scatterbrain sister Cora makes a wild statement: "But he was murdered, wasn't he?" There is no such scandal, and everybody admonishes Cora - but the seed of doubt has been sown. Because the silly Cora has in the past been known to blurt out unwelcome truths.Then, the next day, Cora is bludgeoned to death-------------------------------------------This is an exquisitely structured novel with plenty of characterisation. As with all [...]


    8. 3.5*Should murder make sense? Mr Entwhistle wondered. Academically the answer was yes. But many pointless crimes were on record. It depended, Mr Entwhistle reflected, on the mentality of the murderer.This was my first time reading After the Funeral, but, of course, it is the story that is loosely used as the story in Murder at the Gallop, that classic Marple film starring the incomparable Margaret Rutherford. This is all wrong, of course. After the Funeral is a Poirot mystery, not a Marple. But [...]


    9. “It is a profound belief of mine that if you can induce a person to talk to you for long enough, on any subject whatever, sooner or later they will give themselves away!” Our dear Agatha does it again, offering us a really vile group of people, all perfectly possible murderers, and yet baffling you once more. I did remember who it was but this allowed me to focus on the rest instead and lead me to wonder if sometimes the crime is only the carrot she dangles to attract her readers, the ‘mea [...]


    10. For fans of the inimitable Hercules Poirot, After the Funeral is a delightful visit to Agatha Christie-land. The usual suspects-beautiful, ruthless women, somewhat crooked young men, plotting spinsters are gathered at the big denouement Christie does so well.I can always turn to Christie when I need a comfortable place to situate myself in and this was no disappointment. I had my own choices for the ending but hers worked quite as well. This may, sadly, be the last of hers I had not yet read but [...]



    11. Although I enjoy escaping for a few hours into the world of murder mystery in some British countryside manor, still this one is rather disappointing. But perhaps it is the case of 'it is not the book it is me' because I wasn't really in the mood when I read this one. 2 stars only.


    12. Only read this book if you want to read all of the Poirot books. Otherwise skip it. Seriously.Some of the most despicable characters and an ending that had to be the dumbest one yet for a Christie novel.Once again we have very little Poirot to start with. This book starts at the reading of the will of the late Richard Abernethie. The whole family is left money, though his sister Cora mentions that he had to have been murdered. This disturbs other members of the family and the family solicitor, M [...]


    13. A careless statement is uttered after a funeral, which seem to lead to a brutal crime.Another delightful mystery, and I totally suspected the wrong person! Yet again, the cast of characters was vast and involved multiple relations. I find that Christie liked just dumping a boatload of names on the unsuspecting readers and letting them figure out the connections for themselves. I always have such a hard time distinguishing characters for the first few chapters, but they do tend to get a distinct [...]


    14. Absolute classic and ingenious Christie. A country house, a will, a dysfunctional family, some deaths and near misses. Plenty of red herrings and a real sense that you should be able to guess the perpetrator if only you could go back and make notes; but you are too busy turning the pages to recap conversations in detail. Yet again I got it wrong but that's the most satisfying outcome in a whodunnit. I was reading recently why it is that we find detective stories so satisfying and apparently it i [...]


    15. 3 stars for the audio because I didn’t care for the voicing of Poirot. I kept expecting to hear David Suchet’s voice every time Poirot opened his mouth.4 stars for the story. The cast of characters in the story was an awful bunch of people. Blustery, dismissive, rude, superior, while Poirot was amusing, stern, and perceptive as always. The mystery was interesting with an appropriately high body count. (You’d think the English countryside was teeming with ruffians and murderers.) I liked th [...]


    16. An ailing man in his sixties dies. Not unusual. At the funeral a sister blurts out 'but wasn't he murdered?'. Everyone shushes the sister who always even as a young woman spoke out of turn and blurted whatever she came up with. Leaving behind a substantial estate, no one wants to create waves as they each will inherit a substantial share.All of them need the money, are desperate for it and everything seems to above board. This utterance however puts the lawyer who was also a friend on guard and [...]


    17. AudiobookI figured this book out and as I was patting myself on the back and high-fiving myself (because my husband and daughter could care less), I figured out at the end I read it before. I guess I'm not as intelligent as I thought.



    18. Cred ca anul asta o sa fie plin de romane de Agatha Christie. Mi-a placut destul de mult pentru ca nu mai exista tehnica aia enervanta a interogatoriului. In mod normal, actiunea intr-un roman cu Poirot (mai ales cele exotice) este: Poirot este in vacanta si are loc o crima (patru capitole). II interogheaza pe toti (10 capitole), apoi au loc mese si intalniri disparate cu personajele (8-10 capitole) si apoi finalul (1 capitol explicatia, si inca unul epilog). Aici Poirot apare mai putin. Nu cred [...]



    19. I have read my fair share of Agatha Christie (over 30+) and I've even solved quite a few before it was revealed but not in this one. Master of misdirection.Not only did I not solve ite person I ruled out first turned out to be the person that did it.A really good puzzle.I would have rated it higher but I wasn't all that connected to any of the characters so there was no emotional investment, the book just turned out to be a puzzle for me and that's fine but it's also going to get you a 3 star ra [...]


    20. There's a murder or two or more, and in comes the little egg-headed Belgian to nail the perpetrators, right?Richard Abernethie is dead. His will is being read out, and his sister butts in, claiming that he was murdered. The very next day, she's found brutally murdered too. And that's when our Belgian hero makes an appearance.Well, with wooden and unlikeable characters, and a fairly jaded storyline, Poirot runs out of steam a little bit here. The story is nowhere as pacy as earlier books, and mid [...]


    21. Поредната страхотна история с неочаквана развръзка! Агата Кристи няма равна на себе си.


    22. هذه المرة شككت في شخصية الجاني بنسبة 90% ، ليس بسبب ضعف القضية أو الحبكة إنما.* من أخطار الكلام و الدردشة: إنك إذا استطعت استدراج إنسان للكلام معك وقتا كافيا، في أي موضوع ما، فإنه سوف يكشف دخائله عاجلا أو آجلا. * إن الطريق إلى الحقيقة لن يكون قصيرا مختصرا لا مفر له أن يتبع الطريق ا [...]


    23. It was a good story with a clever twist, but I had to dock it a star because of the icky, icky racism. I mean there was only one expression, but she uses it so many times and this was published in 1953, and I don't know about the history of civil rights in the U.K and British racism is different from racism in the U.S BUT STILL. It's so gross! I can't stand it.Similarly, Poirot plays the "all the British are suspicious of and hostile toward foreigners" card in basically every novel, and it reall [...]


    24. ملاحظة مهمة: لقد قرأت هذه الرواية مترجمة بالعربية بـنسخة "دار الحرية للنشر والتوزيع" المعنونة بــ الميراث الدامي وهذه الرواية هي لأجاتا كريستي بالفعل وليس كما كتب بعضهم أن الرواية كتبها شخص مجهول أو أنها بقلم الكاتب الفرنسي موريس لوبلان ، مبتكر شخصية أرسين لوبين الذي يلقب ب [...]


    25. As usual, Agatha Christie never fails to amaze me. Her writing style is amazing. The plot is well structured, and sequential. I had problem following at first because there are lots of characters involved. (I'm not really good with names). Some are easy to differentiate but others are pretty plain.Overall, I like the story. Once again, I failed to predict who is the criminal. I kind of suspect everyone when I started reading this. Lol. That's pretty much how I read crime novel. And Hercule Poiro [...]


    26. En realidad son 3,5 ⭐No es mi favorito de Agatha, pero me pareció interesante y entretenido. La puntuación es sobre todo porque a pesar de que he leído varios libros de esta autora, aún no he logrado descubrir al culpable, siempre termina sorprendiendome todas formas voy a seguir compitiendo con vos Agatha!!!Ojalá fuera una contemporánea y pudiera pedirle que escriba un libro en el cual participen Poirot y, mi favorita, Miss. Marple.
