Relisten completed!
And Then There Were None - Agatha Christie,Dan Stevens

I somehow forgot exactly what happened from the sixth murder onward.

 

The epilogue was good, especially with this narrator - Dan Stevens' voice and the character's cold and calculating nature made my skin crawl. I could buy most of the "here's how I did it" explanations, but I'm still not convinced that the fifth murder would have been possible.

Death Comes as the End by Agatha Christie
Death Comes As the End - Agatha Christie

This is Agatha Christie's foray into a historical fiction murder mystery. It takes places around 2000 BCE, and it got off to a rough start. Renisenb comes off as too simple for words at the start and there seems to be a fair dose of authorial judgement going on when believing in the many Egyptian gods comes up, but eventually good old Aggie gets into her groove and the family drama and doubts become interesting. I was totally off-base with my guess for the murderer, however.

Death Comes As the End - Agatha Christie

We're halfway through; obviously things can't just end like that and it isn't over. I wonder what the final body count will be?

 

I wish for once I could make use of a sick day to get some reading done, rather than read for a bit and then nap for several hours. It's a bit annoying. I know, I know, the napping is probably good for me. And anything is better than being fuzzy-headed like I was yesterday.

And Then There Were None - Agatha Christie,Dan Stevens

Some of these lines, OMG. Christie gives the reader a peek into each of the characters' thoughts, and it fits - no lying to the reader. And I'm here all "I can't believe Christie did that! And I didn't see it!"

 

I think I might be having more fun during this relisten than I did during my first time through, and I remember enjoying my first time through quite a bit.

 

ETA, at 3 hours and 56 minutes: That said, I have questions about how the murderer accomplished this latest murder. When was there an opportunity to do it? If there was a window for it, it was very, very narrow.

Since I know who the killer is this time around, there are several lines that are perfectly normal things to say and yet now strike me as extremely gutsy.
