October 2007[edit]

My book has the name as "Crale". Frickeg 08:10, 29 October 2007 (UTC)


Can you explain the "spoiler" to the peop`le who want to read and enjoy the book?? I put my solution but it is not the best of solution.--Ciberprofe (talk) 14:27, 25 April 2011 (UTC)

  • Maybe you could just put a spoiler warning at the beginning of the plot. As it is now, the plot cuts off abruptly. I think the best solution would be to restore the previous version and add a spoiler warning. (talk) 03:50, 1 May 2011 (UTC)
    • Please see WP:NDA, WP:SPOIL, and WP:CENSOR. I believe the Wikipedia community has had this battle out in the past, and they just don't do spoiler alerts. The plot summary here might be a bit long, too; someone might look into trimming that. Archaeo (talk) 08:38, 20 June 2011 (UTC)

Incorrect title image[edit]

We really need an image which shows the true title of the story as given by Ms Christie, rather than the title invented by its US publishers.Gymnophoria (talk) 19:43, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

The first UK edition of the book should be the main photograph.

Original research[edit]

I've added the {{original research}} template[1] for a couple of reasons: first, a good deal of the plot summary is actually analysis or interpretation of the plot, as in: "Poirot embarks optimistically", "The differences are subtle", "In the denouement, Poirot reveals the main emotional undercurrents of the story", "Caroline's actions, however, actually prove her innocence", "Poirot's explanation solves the case to the satisfaction of Carla and, most importantly, her fiancé", etc. Second, § References and allusions contains unsourced interpretive statements such as: "Romeo and Juliet are a constant theme in the book" and "Miss Williams remarks disparagingly". Most of the "allusions" themselves are described without citing any sources. Any help finding reliable sources to support this material would be appreciated. —Sangdeboeuf (talk) 13:24, 4 April 2017 (UTC) (updated)

Primary sources[edit]

§ Literary significance and reception is simply a collection of various critics' opinions about the book with no unifying context given. The aforementioned critics are all primary sources for such material – what's needed are secondary and tertiary sources that summarize these various opinions and provide context, to keep the article from becoming simply a collection of trivia. —Sangdeboeuf (talk) 13:34, 4 April 2017 (UTC)
