Elephants Can Remember - Agatha Christie A Hercule Poirot story without Captain Hasting just doesn't feel the same. I became more aware of how important the way he narrated the story, selflessly mentioning all of his silliness, being goaded by Poirot, his humanity; I realise the Poirot I like is Poirot seen from Hasting's eyes. In this story, Poirot doesn't have the same voice and character, he is simply a detective who helped Ariadne Olivier and not The Hercule Poirot of the grey cells.This is also the first story where I can guess what really happened and spent the rest of book wishing he would just spill it out and have it done with... So it's not a really enjoyable Agatha Christie's book. Such a shame...
