“There is evil everywhere under the sun”
“Yea, also the heart of the sons of men is full of evil, and madness is in their heart while they live.”
No of course not, definitely not, do you think me mad?? 😮😮 I am not reviewing an Agatha Christie book!
All those who love mysteries just pick any one of the brilliant works from the Queen of crime and be in thrall of the twisty and “What The” ride!
Well, surely, I have read almost all the Poirot novels and also watched the series played brilliantly by David Suchet and can still watch them over and over again without feeling an ounce of boredom. So, trying to re-capture the joy of Poirot and his quirky madness, I picked up Evil Under The Sun and hopefully 🤞would continue to re-read all of them once again. Yeah, yeah bad promise I know when the TBR shelf has already toppled down due to its weight🤣
The writing that conveys Poirot’s quirkiness is magical and here’s an example,
“That is what I mean. A bath! The receptacle of porcelain, one turns the taps and fills it, one gets in, one gets out and ghoosh – ghoosh – ghoosh, the water goes down the waste pipe!”
“M. Poirot are you quite mad?”
“No, I am extremely sane.”
Who can resist laughing out loud and I thank God that I was at home reading this, imagine the look of horror on people’s faces seeing me crying and laughing like crazy in a bus or a train?

The beautiful bronzed body of Arlena Stuart lay facedown on the beach. But strangely, there was no sun and she was not sunbathing… she had been strangled.
Ever since Arlena’s arrival the air had been thick with sexual tension. Each of the guests had a motive to kill her. But Hercule Poirot suspects that this apparent ‘crime of passion’ conceals something much more evil.
