    這本書包含六個短篇。其中五篇是白羅---〈哪個聖誕布丁?〉〈西班牙箱子之謎〉〈弱者〉〈二十四隻黑畫眉〉〈夢境〉。而〈葛林蕭的笑話〉則是瑪波小姐的短篇。

    對我來說,白羅的長篇故事勝過短篇許多,因為有長篇的比較,讓我覺得五篇短篇並無任何的突出之處。

    6篇短篇, 西班牙的盒子跟哪個聖誕布丁在另一本短篇已有收錄, 只是敍述的方式略作增改; 【弱者】還蠻有趣, 以催眠的手法找出隱藏在某人潛意識下的線索; 前5篇包括【24隻黑畫眉】及【夢境】都是白羅的案子, 【夢境】乍看很玄, 但其實只不過是兇手先舖設好的橋段, 只有最後一篇【葛林蕭的笑話】瑪波小姐不費吹灰之力就破了

    老式的偵探故事永遠比現在五花八門的日式推理更得我心.沒有什麼比看白羅老爹一一偵訊完後仰坐在沙發椅上說出真相更讓我緊張的了,就算有時候結局恢復到老梗,還是讓我喜愛不已.
    就算是老梗也有仍然是新梗的年代吧!
    我還是會喜歡Christie的還有Poirot啊.

    我最喜歡克莉絲蒂的地方,就是同樣的書我看了三遍,仍然不記得兇手是誰,每次看都像第一次。
    內容我已經忘了,只記得很好看。
