Genre: Mystery - Short Stories

Reviewed by Auggie Moore - September 6, 2005

The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding is a collection of six delicious short stories by Agatha Christie that are all Christmas themed. Christmas aside, they are some of Christie's best short mysteries. Five of these stories feature her famed Belgian detective, Hercule Poirot, and one is a Miss Jane Marple mystery!

The two main stories in this collection are the book's title story, The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding, and the brilliant The Mystery of the Spanish Chest. The other four stories are served more as minor fare. As Christie mentions in the introduction to this book, the stories are arranged as a bit of a Christmas feast with the first two stories being the main course and the other four accouterments. This is an apt description of the stories in this satisfying and entertaining book.

The six stories in this collection are:
