    I never read Agatha Christie’s Poirot books. I know Agatha Christie. Who doesn’t? But I haven’t read any of her stories. I’m sure she’s great. But I cannot help but think that some people have failed to appreciate Sophie Hannah’s New Poirot books because they keep comparing her work to the original Christie novels.
    I love these books, and I would argue that my enjoyment is rooted in the fact that have nothing to compare them to. Or maybe, my expectations are different. I read mystery novels because I want to have a good time. And you know what? The New Hercule Poirot mysteries are a great time.
