    Rating The Full FiveWhen this novel came out in 1975 my older sister was a bookshop owner and gave me and our mother a copy to savor None of the three of us were particular Christie nuts My sister felt that Dame Ags played gawd with the clues a bit too muchmy mother found Poirot insufferably smug I read the book without discrimination or comprehension and moved on to other things I liked better I believe that was the year I read Stand on Zanzibar but am not positiveNow that I'm the age my mother was when she read the book I see something interesting to old man me than ever would have occurred to teenaged me This ending for Poirot's career was written during the Blitz a time when anyone at all could die without warning because Dame Agatha thought her fans deserved an ending to their character's life that would give completeness and finality to an important part of a series book reader's life How very thoughtful that is How aware Dame Agatha was of her creation's place in the emotional lives of her fansAnd to her most ardent partisans those who bristle at the probable cause of the evident diminution of her writing prowess due to dementia I can only say Read this book and then read the last book she wrote Elephants Can Remember which I've reviewed unfavorably elsewhere The difference is stark and deeply saddeningThe 2013 television adaptation is stellar and gets on its own merits a five star review David Suchet so completely became Poirot that I can only hope someone somewhere possesses both the power and the will to derail the 2017 adaptation of Murder on the Orient Express perpetrated by Kenneth Branagh for no good or even comprehensible reason before its scheduled release on 10 November 2017 Why not choose 111117 at 1111am? Armistice Day might in the eyes of Kalliope excuse or at least obscure Branagh's hubris in making this unneeded and unwelcome filmNot that I have a strong opinion you understand I merely comment upon the passing scene comme d'habitude

    Poirot's last novel and last case Things came full circle and Captain Hastings went to Styles where he had seen a Poirot's investigation for the first time Only now Poirot was crippled and lost use of his legs but the gray cells the gray cells still worked Hastings had no clue that Poirot was about to match his wits with a genius serial killer who could never be accused of his crimes by any court or even suspected sort of like Professor Moriarty if you will but their methods were very different Let me start with the things I did not like and even hated sometimes Hastings' I lowered since the first book and he was not exactly Einstein to begin with Poirot's constant gloating about the fact got on my nerves after all Hastings could not help being stupid and he had to be pitied not constantly being reminded about Personally oh my God mercifully he was not present in the large part of the series especially in the later books and I forgot about his low mental abilities Here I was for a rude reawakening to the fact Having said that his daughter was present in the action I regret to say she took her mental abilities from her father and I also suspect she was dropped on her head repeatedly when she was a toddler She was shown as a capable biologist but in ordinary situations she made her father look like a genius I am not talking here about the eccentricity and lack of attention of some talented people I am talking about stupidity in other words she was mentally challenged to put in into modern terms It did not help any that she behaved like a young rebellious teen and I have it on good authority that not all of them are that badThe villain was painfully obvious from relatively early in the book for any reader who satisfies the following two conditions First he or she or it needs to have an I slightly higher than Captain Hastings and much higher than his daughter Second a will to exercise the aforementioned gray cells just a little mind you So do not expect usual crazily complicated plot which is a trademark by the ueen of Mystery I did not like the way she treated Poirot I totally understand by the time of writing she was tired of the character and publishers and readers still demanded of his adventures Sure the guy had an ego of the size of a modern aircraft carrier but I like his conviction that murder is wrong and he always kept it and he never let his ego get in the way of it Lastly this book was written before the previous one of the series and it feels less modern than the letter this was a little jarring But here I am nitpicking So from what I wrote about one would think that the rating is 3 stars but I gave 4 There are three reasons My general respect for the whole series and the character of Poirot The villain who was very good and interesting and very villainous Also after all I said it is still a great farewell to the second greatest private detective of the literature

    Curtain Poirot’s Last Case“Nothing is so sad in my opinion as the devastation wrought by age”—Hastings on PoirotI’m done whew having read all of 38 Christie Poirot novels and a couple short story collections in order of publication over the past 2 3 years I’ll listen again to And Then There Were None and will not read Christie again for awhile I am sureChristie fearing for her life during WWII wrote the last Poirot and Marple books in the early forties and sealed them in a vault until just a couple years before her death intending them to be the last novels the last word for her respective detective heroes She much preferred Marple to Poirot who in the sixties she had truly grown tired of calling him an egocentric creep However unlike Conan Doyle Christie resisted the temptation to kill her detective off while he was still popular She saw herself as an entertainer whose job was to produce what the public liked and the public liked Poirot Christie made a mistake in 1920 in having her Belgian detective already retired afterwards writing him as a main character for fifty years So are we to surmise he retired at 40? 21? Poirot returns to Styles in this one where the first Poirot novel is set written in 1920 when Christie was 30 Curtain was published in 1975 less than a year before she died at 85 in 1976 55 years of writing Poirot Poor and very rich woman Good for her and us though on the whole as she emerged as the best selling author of all timeAnd no matter how old he is we need our main man with the marvelous moustaches to be in full possession of his “little gray cells” right up until the end Is this realistic? Well either way he seems undiminished in speech and cognition without fail The erosion of memory is a theme in this and many of the last books for the eighty something Christie but not for Poirot He solves the crime as always though it is complicated and interesting how it happens and how it is revealed; I can’t exactly say how without spoilersThis book also features the early Poirot books Captain Hastings a buffoon who again tells the story clueless every step of the way Keyholes figure in amusinglySince Curtain is the title Christie frames her last book in terms of her major love theater and performance and disguises We even discover Poirot has been disguising himself for years in a way And Othello’s Iago figures in so Shakespeare is her darling right to the end for inspiration This may not be one of the very best of his books but it is clever with better writing than we have seen for many years from Christie because she wrote it in the forties She also doesn’t bother to pull it from the vault to revise it for continuity grr For instance the supposedly older Poirot here has problems with collouial English than he has had in decades consistent with a forties Poirot not a seventies Poirot But overall it was good to bring back Hastings and to end as we began in Styles And the killer—a serial killer—and how he kills is original and interesting It is a very good book in the Christie canon and because of the nature of the killer and because of the series of Big Surprises in the plot I am going to bump it from 45 to 5 starsA SPOILER ALERT about something very sweet that had never before happened hidden in this link to the historically stuffy The New York Times 6 August 1975 following the publication of Curtain five star PoirotsThe Murder of Roger AckroydPeril at End HouseMurder on the Orient ExpressCurtainMy four star PoirotsLord Edgeware DiesThree Act TragedyThe ABC MurdersMurder in MesopotamiaCards on the TableDeath on the NileSad CypressEvil Under the SunFive Little PigThe HollowAfter the Funeral

    Agatha Christie's swan song for her most famous character Hercule Poirot fittingly returns him and and his friend Arthur Hastings to the setting of her very first novel The Mysterious Affair at Styles Aside from the fact that it's Poirot's final case a rather unusual twist and the recurring Othello theme make this one of Christie's memorable works if rather melancholy It was interesting to find out that Christie originally wrote this novel during World War II possibly fearing that she might not survive the war and wanting to give Poirot an appropriate send off Then she put Curtain in a bank vault for over 30 years finally publishing it in 1975 It was her last published book before she died Au revoir Agatha and Hercule

    For a murderer my friend is conceited than any creature on this earth A murderer is always clever than anyone else no one will ever suspect him or her the police will be utterly baffledThe above uote is a perfect way to describe this mysteryI have been wanting to read this for some time now and what better day than Christie's birthdayI have now read numerous mysteries by Christie but there is no pattern apart from a cozy settingEach and every mystery murder suspects the end is uniue and it baffles me as generally when you read many books by one author some things do become predictableThe only thing I have learnt after reading Agatha Christie books is that expect the unexpected and still you won't guess how shocking the unexpected can beThis is the last in the series of Poirot mysteries and I would recommend to read the first of this series The Mysterious Affair at Styles before this as both the mysteries take place at Styles and there is a spoiler to the first book in this story And suddenly from nowhere a vague feeling of uneasiness and disuiet assailed me It was not safe it was not right to plan happiness here There was something malignant about the air of StylesPoirot and Hastings come together in this last case together to catch X who is clever and sadistic as any murderer can be There is a mix of lovely characters who make you trust them but doubt them at the same time Everyone is a potential murderer in everyone there arises from time to time the wish to kill though not the will to killThe ending is soo ingenious but soo complicated I just had to sit back and digest it allThere is no way I could have guessed this Did you?

    I admit it I teared up at the end; I don't ever want there to be a final Poirot novel However two things comforted me one is that this was not actually the last novel Dame Agatha wrote about Poirot not by a long shot Since Elephants Can Remember is largely regarded as a weak later effort I think of Hallowe'en Party as the last excellent novel written about Poirot Curtain was written somewhere around WWII most likely and put away to be released decades later as Agatha neared the end of her long career So it is always possible to read the novels in chronological order and pretend that Poirot is back for all his many post WWII cases rather like Sherlock Holmes' return from The Final Problem But the biggest comfort is that this truly excellent novel could not have been written without view spoiler killing off Poirot it is in some ways the ultimate twist from the author famous for brilliant unexpected twists Agatha often expressed the idea that ANYONE is capable of murder in the right circumstances and her novels show that the last person the reader expects to have done it could have done it the narrator a child a supposedly dead character etc In Curtain Agatha hits us with the biggest shocker of them all even her Great Detective is not immune Poirot can and does commit murder and even mon ami Hastings makes a typically blundering attemptand both are completely in character whilst doing so No doubt Agatha wanted to write the detective author's White Whale the perfect crime And who could pull off the perfect crime except Poirot himself?? hide spoiler
