When we closed the store and no longer felt Amazon breathing down our necks, we went ahead and subscribed to Amazon Prime so we could catch up on things like Bosch, which customers had been telling us frequently they enjoyed. (And Bosch is excellent, very true to the books though not an exact replica).
Prime’s The ABC Murders is not an exact replica of Christie’s enjoyable, early serial killer novel either. First there’s the casting of John Malkovich as Poirot. He doesn’t look like everyone’s mental picture of Poirot – that would be David Suchet – he’s instead an older, defeated Poirot, scraping along without his faithful valet, George, and his nightly hot chocolate.
