Clever ending! Jun 11, 2007
Elephants Can Remember begins very slowly. It seems to drag along until about halfway through. While the description of Mrs. Ariadne Oliver, a writer, is interesting, it seems that it is the focal point of the story instead of the solving of the crime. Hercule Poirot, as usual, is an entertaining and eccentric character and gets the ball rolling when he begins to work his magic in unveiling the truth in this double murder mystery. This book helps you get to know the people affected by this tragic crime more than other Christie books. The ending is very clever and makes up for the slow beginning. Overall I enjoyed this book and was thoroughly impressed by the solving of the murders.
