Poirot’s chief personality characteristic was undoubtedly his overweening - but lovable - egotism. On rare occasions he would present an appearance of modesty, but it was patently so forced and false that it fooled no one. Some of his own evaluations from one story or another: “Hercule Poirot… is of a cleverness quite exceptional;” “impossible to deceive Hercule Poirot;” “me, I know everything.”
- Russell H. Fitzgibbon, The Agatha Christie Companion
So, if the blurb on the book "Goldenhand" is any evidence, you are a fan of Garth Nix and the Old Kingdom. AS SOON AS I THOUGHT YOU COULD NOT GET ANY COOLER I AM PROVED WRONG.
