I remember the days when my sons were in primary school and they would regularly come home with leaflets and newsletters in their book bags. If you’re anything like our home, there was always much excitement when they came home with a catalogue from The Book People.
We would spend ages pouring over the books and highlighting the ones we liked, going back and then whittling down the list from that initial euphoria and sending our selections back to school to be ordered (the books were always so reasonably priced it was so hard to choose!).
You can image how excited I am to be collaborating with The Book People today sharing Laura’s guest review with you.
We were sent The Agatha Christie Collection.
RRP for this Agatha Christie collection is £39.95 but with The Book People the cost is £7.49. Huge savings!
If you’re a lover of Agatha Christie, you should check out the other Agatha Christie books with The Book People.
Laura is reviewing Elephants Can Remember today.
Hercule Poirot is given a cold case and works alongside crime novelist Mrs Adriana Oliver. A suicide pact or murder, Mrs Oliver investigates elephants from the past and Poirot must use his little grey cells to solve the case.
‘Elephants can remember’ is a later novel in the Hercule Poirot series, however I found this one to be predictable. Usually Agatha Christie writes cleverly to disguise why or how a murder took place. I thoroughly enjoy Poirot’s character and the layout of each novel. My favourite part is his dramatic display to the main characters with how he solved the case. Unfortunately this time I guessed the ending.
Sadly not her best in the series, however as a fan of Poirot I enjoyed this light, pleasant read.
I must admit I’ve become addicted to browsing The Book People online catalogue! You can even purchase stationery now (and you know how addicted I am to stationery …).
If you don’t know anything about The Book People, you can read their story (inspiring isn’t it). With standard delivery available at £2.95 I think they’re definitely contenders alongside other well-know retailers.
I’ll leave you with a quote from the above website page:
While we are a home-grown business, we have the unique advantage of offering the knowledge of the traditional independent bookseller and a range competitive with the online giants – alongside the convenience of delivering to your home or workplace, all at unbelievable prices.
