Still the Best Reveal...
The Murder of Roger Ackroyd - Agatha Christie
Updated: December 2019. 
This book still is for me the best murder mystery I have read. Christie totally deserves all of the accolades she got for this book. I loved every minute of it and the set-up. I still gasped when we have our Poirot deducing who killed Roger Ackroyd. 
 
I started reading Agatha Christie about a year or so ago. I had only read three of her Miss Marple novels and this was my first Hercule Poirot novel.

I was once again pleasantly surprised and thrilled to find that I found another new detective that I will happily enjoy.

The novel is narrated by Dr. James Sheppard who ends up assisting Hercule Poirot in his investigation of the murder of Roger Ackroyd.

A widow named Mrs. Ferrars is found dead of what is believed to be an accident. Mrs. Ferrars was seeing Roger Ackroyd who all of the village believed was on the cusp of proposing to her.

After her death, Roger Ackroyd comes forward stating that Mrs. Ferrars admitted killing her husband and that she committed suicide. After his revelation Roger Ackroyd is found murdered in his locked study.

The mystery novel includes so many suspects that you will find yourself second guessing everyone. Agatha Christie writes so well that you have no idea that all along she is slipping you clues until the very end.

I can actually say that when you get to who murdered Roger Ackroyd it will surprise and stun you.

As soon as I finished this novel I went right back and read it all over again to see if I could catch the clues that Poriot points to after his unmasking of the murder.

Would definitely recommend reading this and all of Agatha Christie's novels!

Reading progress update: I've read 294 out of 294 pages.
One, Two, Buckle My Shoe (Hercule Poirot, #22) - Agatha Christie

Oh, this was a good one. And I especially liked how twisted the story was and I never would have guessed that ending.

I really like those Chistie´s were I´m completely in the blind until the very last pages of the book.

 

Book: Read a book about light, miracles, featuring Jewish characters, set in Israel, that is the second book in a series, with the word “two” in the title, or with a light on the cover.

I´m really enjoying

 

the secret service / spy(?)

(spoiler show)

 

angle of this story. Somehow the stakes seem to be higher than usual for Poirot.

 

And I just realized that I can use this book for the 24 tasks as well. Which is amazing.

One, Two, Buckle My Shoe (Hercule Poirot, #22) - Agatha Christie

Like BrokenTune and Themis, I´m in the mood for something comforting and a Christie is simply comforting. And the next Poirot in line I haven´t read yet is "One, Two, Buckle my Shoe", which BT is reading at the moment as well.

 

I hope it´s a good one, because after that MacInnes I need a good book.

Reading progress update: I've read 100%.
Hercule Poirot's Christmas - Agatha Christie,Hugh Fraser

A toxic family gathering ... it can´t get anymore Christmassy than that, right? It was such a joy listening to this book.

 

And the voice Hugh Fraser used for the old curmudgeon Simeon Lee made me smile. Listening to him makes these book even more better than they are to begin with.

 

Book: Read a Christmas book.
