      I can’t, either. Suchet was brilliant. He really studied the books and kept the character very true to them — the extent of occasionally refusing certain lines or actions because they weren’t in character. And he looked the part, though he had to be padded a bit to accomplish the right degree of enbonpoint (as Christie described Poirot.) Suchet will always be the definitive Poirot for me, just as Joan Hickson is the definitive Miss Marple.

      Yes, the literary-fiction world (or maybe I should say, the male-dominated lit-crit world) has always tended to dismiss both female writers and female readers. That’s changing — but not nearly fast enough.

    I love that scene from Doctor Who. 🙂 And I really like the video you shared. Haha I do find that books are a comfort for me when I’m feeling anxious or just plain agitated. They help calm my mind.
