A fantastic Miss Marple, which has definitely improved for me on this reread. The mystery is wonderfully twisted and I´m still in awe how Miss Marple has been able to solve the murder. Miss Marple is amazing! And I particularly enjoyed that the vicar and his wife Griselda made an appearance as well in this book.
I listened to the audiobook, narrated by Stephanie Cole. I have never listened to a narration by her before, but I really liked listening to it. I especially loved her voice for Miss Marple, which is kind and understanding. The way I imagine her voice to be.
Murder in the Mews comprises of four short stories / novellas, a format which I normally struggle with. But I really liked the majority of these stories, despite the last one called "Triangle at Rhodes". I found that one quite boring.
My favorite story "Dead Man´s Mirror" was also the longest one in this collection, which shows that I prefer my Christie stories to be one the longer side. That story had to right amount of Poirot godness and family drama to keep my thoroughly entertained.
I just started reading the third novella "Dead Man´s Mirror" in this collection, which features a Mr Satterthwaite. I know I met this character before in a Christie book, but I cannot remember which one it is and I have completely forgotten the storyline he was involved in. I guess it´s a good thing I´m rereading all of the books on audio.
What can I say about this book that hasn´t been said before innumerable times. This is an excellent mystery, the plot is cleverly crafted and it simply is one of Christie´s best.
And yet it isn´t one of my favorite mysteries by Dame Agatha and I don´t know exactly the reason for my feeling so. One reason might be that I didn´t feel deeply connected to the characters. And more often than not my favorite mysteries by Agatha Christie are those, which have a tragic ending and in which I become deeply moved by the fate of the characters. Or who knows, maybe I just missed poor, old Hastings a whole lot in this one.
