I mean, honestly, what can I say? This is, to me, a near perfect Christie. It's a Poirot, which are generally my favorites. Agatha mines her knowledge of exotic travel settings to excellent effect when she sends her characters down the Nile on the Karnak. The personalities are well drawn, and it ...

Well, this one left me reeling in the best way. I think I was out of breath at the end! So here are some final thoughts: 1. I like the fact that the murder didn't happen until halfway through the novel. When it happens at the start of a book, we never really get to know the deceased except for hea...

Whew, I didn´t expect this book to be that much of a struggle. I was bored senseless by the first half of it, but I really liked the second half. In the end I´m glad that I have finished it, but it´s definitely not going to be my favorite Poirot novel. My biggest problem with this book is that it´...

10/03/15 I don't know how I've gotten to this point in my reading and have never read AC (considering I went through a few year years of reading almost exclusively mysteries) But this will be my first because it is the one of the few my library had and the dust jacket claims Dame Agatha considered...

Well finally! I was starting to worry that I was on a total downswing with the Poirot books. Dumb Witness was really awful. If it hadn't been on my list of Poirot's to read I would have skipped it. Death on the Nile reminds me most of Christie's The Murder of Roger Ackroyd. We have a very smart Poir...

This post is probably going to be spoilerific. Read at your own peril. Death on the Nile is one of my favorite Agatha's, which is a bit unlikely, actually, since it is solid, but not even arguably among her strongest, mysteries. I've read it several times, and always enjoy the various characters. ...

I'm not really all that sure about these Agatha Christie mysteries. I guess it has something to do with me never really being all that interested in your stock standard mystery, of which Christie was an absolute master. Okay, I do enjoy Sherlock Holmes, but then that probably has more to do with the...
