    1 thought on “Poirot and Me

    1. This is just a wonderful book for anyone who enjoys the Poirot series Suchet so clearly loves Poirot His agony every time he has to wait to see if the series will be renewed His painstaking attention to detail His determination to be true to the man Christie wrote It might be obvious to people who have looked at my books read list, I am a big Christie fan And I have always the thought David Suchet is the only man who have ever played Poirot the way he should be played Portrayals of Hercule Poiro [...]

    2. A typical celebrity autobiography where everyone you work with is fantastic and your career was a struggle That bit is hardly surprising What is surprising is how Suchet glossed over his Poirot castmates so easily with the same kind of nonsense language that he saved for guest stars No substance at all His career journey and the continued struggle to get all the Poirot stories made was interesting I did find it odd that he kept going on and on how he wanted to make all of DAME Agatha s stories a [...]

    3. If you are interested in Poirot the character or the tv series Agatha Christie s Poirot, this is well worth the read Suchet clearly put a lot of thought in how to play Poirot and his analysis is thought provoking I also enjoyed reading about how he as a character actor approaches creating a role.

    4. Well, this is, undoubtedly, a book for hardcore fans of the little Belgian sleuth So, as it happens, I am one of them, I simply adored it Suchet s memories cover 25 years of production, from the very beginning, the creation, the search for Poirot, to the bitter end I can t bear there will be no Poirot But this memoir let us know that Suchet is well aware of what has accomplished he has really brought Poirot to life And it is impossible not to be grateful to the struggle he made to be faithful t [...]

    5. I should start this review by pointing out some things First of all, I have a great admiration for David Suchet as an actor in his portrayal of Poirot He is the definitive Poirot because he is an intense character actor Second, I went in expecting an entirely different kind of book Third, Suchet is an actor not a writer, and some of my misgivings with the book stem from this issue.I m very sorry to say I ended up not liking this book much at all I trudged through the entire thing to be a fair re [...]

    6. I listened to this book on Audible so I had the benefit of David Suchet s Poirot voice as well as his own.The book, as suggested by the title, only covers the years of his career since taking on the role 25 years ago, but it also talks about the many roles he played in between the various Poirot series and the uncertain nature of an actor s life.It discusses in great detail the production of each film explaining how and why each book was adapted as it was I did sometimes find Mr Suchet s insiste [...]

    7. Agatha Christie yra viena i mano m gstamiausi ra ytoj ir tikrai pati m gstamiausia detektyv autor O Puaro m gstamiausias seklys Kas, mano nuomone, geriausiai k nija sekl , turb t jau sp jote inoma, kad David Suchet Tod l buvo domu paskaityti knyg , kurioje David Suchet pasakoja apie savo sukurt Puaro.Prad ioje buvau tiesiog paker ta D Suchet gav s vaidmen visi kai jam atsidav Jis perskait visas Agathos Christie knygas, kuriose veikia Puaro, ir ym josi kiekvien detal , kaip seklys atrodo ar elgia [...]

    8. I got this for my birthday and was really interested I like Poirot, I definitely think Suchet got the part right, and had high hopes for this book What I got, was justh The beginning was good, about how he created the character and the filming of the first series, his family of Japp, Hastings and Miss Lemon, but then it just became samey In every chapter there was a brief synopsis of each story and list of actors, and then how after each series his contract was never renewed and he lived in fear [...]

    9. I ve always loved the Poirot films and was looking forward to this book.It is a very general account of Mr Suchet s time as Poirot, with very little in depth information about the shoots and other actors.His pride in his performance and the quality of the productions are very evident, as is his genuine kind personality, but I would have liked a insightful book I skimread some pages as they just seemed to cover the same ground.Not bad could have been better.

    10. A thoroughly well written and entertaining autobiography, concentrating on Suchet s twenty year stint in filming all the Poirot stories, but also providing a pretty full chronological narration of his whole career, with many successes in theatre, film, and television, and personal life I listened to this, narrated charmingly by the author himself Delightful.

    11. Poirot and Me is a most beautiful memoire of David Suchet, the only actor to have played all Poirot stories ever written by dame Agatha Christie The book provides fun facts and titbits about every single episode made in the entire Poirot series and, probably interestingly, how David Suchet has made this fictional character into such a realistic human being that has become such a dear and indispensable friend to a great amount people from all sorts of backgrounds Poirot and Me, however, goes dee [...]

    12. 339 2017DamnMembaca perfeksionisnya Suchet dengan character notes nya yang sangat detail tentang Poirot, jadi mengingatkanku bahwa di film terbaru Poirot bulan November 2017 ini, rambut dan kumis Branagh beruban Nooo Poirot selalu always menyemir rambut dan kumisnya hitam mengilat

    13. This book is just as charming as you d expect it to be In terms of memoirs or behind the scenes revelations, it is very sedate It s really an open love letter, from an actor to a character he embodied Suchet is at his best when he describes the time and effort he put into getting to know Poirot he had never read one of Christie s books until after he got the part how he read every book and story, kept copious notes, wrote a five page bulleted list of thou salts and thou shalt nots to guide him i [...]

    14. David Suchets book is a devotion to Hercule Poirot With a very entertaining writing he describes,tells and explains his role which he played over 25 years and how he merged with thy little man At the end,he didn t play Poirot, Poirot was a huge part of him already.The book therefore is for all the people,the devotees of the little Belgian who had been and remained a vital part of their lives and a lovely addition watching his play on screen Suchet shares his many memories of creating the televis [...]

    15. This is a wonderful book for anyone who has lived with the Poirot series for all these years and just wants a little bit It s hard to believe the series that began only three years after my birth and which I cannot imagine being without has finally concluded, but David Suchet s thoughtful remembrances and detailed talks on characterization and all he has loved about being Poirot are very special and a beautiful final touch to what will remain an enduring series Suchet seems incredibly sweet, an [...]

    16. Poirot on Poirot David Suchet s take on his experience playing Agatha Christie s most famous creation Amazing attention to detail, the inclusion of the authors noted on Poirot were an unexpected bonus Promotion of Self did stem through the book I d rather not have had to read about Mr Suchet s other exploits in his varied career, however this didn t reduce my enjoyment of this excellent book A must read for any fan of Agatha Christie whether a fan of her written word, TV portrayal or both.

    17. Thoroughly enjoyable, insightful and painfully honest recapitulation of the past 25 years, Davis Suchet spent becoming Poirot perfection Meticulously honouring Agatha Christies heritage by never ridiculing Poirot in his portrayal, Suchet explains his love for the character that has become a bit of an alter ego to him in such an affectionate way, you immediately want to rewatch the entire series again From ABC to the last curtain This book is highly recommended to anyone wanting to put ces petite [...]

    18. This is the first celebrity book I ve ever read and I don t think I ll read another I m a huge fan of Poirot, which is why my son bought the book for me, but I found this irritatingly repetitive I think David Suchet is an outstanding actor but as a writer I realise that his publishing company probably told him to keep it light and simple as the programme is so big around the world as we were repeatedly told that it will need to be translated into many different languages The photos were good.

    19. Brilliant A must read for all Agatha Christie Poirot fans.David Suchet researched Poirot thoroughly and took the role very seriously This is why he is the definitive Poirot as he gave 100 per cent The notes he made on the character are fascinating The love of the role shines through which makes it a joy to read.Will miss the Poirot series.No one can better David Suchet as Poirot.Will need to start reading them all again and catch up with the re runs.

    20. This was an interesting read from an actor, who transitioned himself into Monsieur Hercule Poirot he wrote a list how to behave as Mr Poirot, did you know So it could be a very interesting reading, unfortunately from the middle I started to be fed up with the list of unknown actors actresses, who participated in the episodes, so that s had a bit stolen the joy of reading.

    21. A great book for lovers of the Hercules Poirot series starring the author Suchet tells of the history of the show and his development of the detective s character Also included is the history of the rest of Suchet s career as an actor.

    22. A delightful listen I would listen mr Suchet reading a phone book, I m sure As a book I m not sure if it was a good one Tons of names that may mean nothing to the reader and loads of me me me talk A better editor should have been employed.

    23. Fantastic book if you are a fan of Poirot and David Suchet Definitely would recommend if you are feeling some Poirot nostalgia and want to relive all of it

    24. Probably somewhat unusually, I decided to read this book after not watching any of the TV series except for Murder on the Orient Express, which I turned off after around ten minutes because of how much they had changed it Instead I had seen the TV documentaryBeing Poirotand had really enjoyed it After finishing the book series, I thought this would be a nice a nice read in hindsight, I d have stuck with the book.From reading the book you can tell Suchet is the Poirot and has taken a lot of time [...]
