بينما كانت جين ماربل تجلس وتستمتع بأشعة الشمس على شاطيء الكاريبي شعرت بأن الحياة هناك مملة الى حد كبير صحيح أن الشمس كانت تريح الأمها الروماتزمية إالا إن تلك الجنة كانت تخلو من أي أحداث مثيرة.
وفي النهاية حدث ما أثار اهتمامها وذلك عندما تحدث ضابط متقاعد عن مصادفة غريبة ولسوء الحظ بينما كان الرائد على وشك أن يريها صورة مذهلة تشوش انتباهه وزاغت عيناه ولم يكمل القصة التي كان ي

Recommends it for: fans of Miss Marple
One's time period can be such a bother, don't you think? Or, in some cases, very inspiring.

I, for instance, never thought I'd see the time when a Cheeto could become president. I mean, president of the Frito-Lay Corporation, sure. But an elected position? A victory for processed foods! Out with the vegetable gardens, in with the snack machines!

Wait, not that kind of orange finger food?

Oh.

Oh, well... nevermind. Back to what I was saying about inspiration. I mean, hey--I'm in my forties. I act

'' دائماً ما يجد القتلةُ صعوبةً في ترِك الأشياء تبدو بسيطة ''

لا أخفي عليكم كيف تُهت في هذه الرواية وكنتُ بعيداً كل البعد عن معرفة القاتل،، من الصعوبة جداً أن تخمن مجرد تخمين من هو القاتل وكل السبل التي سلكتها أجاثا كانت مضللة ومغلقة ويصعب إيجاد ثغرة في إكتشاف القاتل،، لكني أسمتعت جداً بالرواية وأدركت أنها من الروايات المتميزة والقوية في مجال الأدب البوليسي..

كُتبت هذه الرواية قبل 50 سنة ولكن يالروعة أجاثا، ما أجمل ما تكتبه هذه الكاتبة العبقرية، الحقيقة أني كنت في السابق أخشى أن أخوض تجربة مع هكذا

والدرس المستفاد مما حدث
ما قاله سيدنا عمر بن الخطاب رضي الله عنه
" ما ندمتُ على السكوت مَرّة ، لكنني ندمت على الكلام مرارا "

اللقاء الأول مع أجاثا كريستي و عالم الرواية البوليسية

قرأتها في يوم واحد
بل في ساعات معدودة
وهذا لا يحدث معي إلا نادراً مهما بلغ استمتاعي بالعمل
ولكن الوضع هنا مختلف ، والأجواء مختلفة تماماً عن أي رواية مشوقة ومثيرة قرأتها من قبل
هناك سحرٌ ما في ما تكتب أجاثا كريستي تقريباً
شيء ما يجبرك على الانتباه من الورقة الأولى وحتى الورقة الأخير
ولايترك لك فرصة لالتقاط الأنفاس إطلاقاً

Again, a fantastic literary sleight of hand where the clues are paraded before one's eyes - yet that one crucial piece of misdirection fools one till the end.

A Sassari abbiamo una parola forte e molto espressiva che riassume la capacità di un individuo di influenzare negativamente le sorti delle persone e delle cose che stanno lui attorno, e questa parola è 'pindaccio'. Ora, se dovessi accompagnare a Miss Marple un aggettivo, questo sarebbe 'pindaccia'.
E' leit motiv del 'le muoiono tutti attorno', insomma, attraverso i gialli, ce l'ha insegnato anche Arthur Conan Doyle, ci è stato insegnato che, la prima qualità di un buon detective, è quella di sape

رواية ممتعة لأجاثا
وطبعا بالتأكيد لم أحل اللغز ^_^ عادي يعني اتعودت خلاص ^_^ شئ طبيعي أن القاتل يكون أبعد شخص عن خيالك وطبيعي جدا أن يكون هو الشخص الذي تتعاطف معه ،
وتقلق عليه ، وتحزن من أجله
وطبيعي أن يكون أمام عينيك طوال الوقت ولا تراه
وأن يكون الحل بين أصابعك ولا تنتبه له
وأن تقرأ التفاصيل الدقيقة ولا تتذكرها
عادي .. ^_^ كل هذا مع أجاثا عادي
ولكنك ستستمتع

A Carribean Mystery is one of the Miss Marple mysteries. Although Agatha Christie herself preferred Miss Marple to Poirot, I, like many of her readers, prefer Monsieur Poirot. Why? I have no idea. I certainly started reading his mysteries first, and I think it's also because he amuses me more than Miss Marple. But then again, I've only read, what, two books involving her.

Basically, the plot involves Miss Marple coming across as suspicious death, which starts to escalate. After reading this book

Read for the Lifetime Reading Challenge (1964).

I've always been a fan of Agatha Christie, but it's been at least fifteen years since I read one of her novels. I always forget just how much I enjoy them. I adore her writing style. She has very efficient, compact prose that nevertheless packs a dry, witty wallop.

I listened to the audio of this book from narrator Emilia Fox, who is brilliant. She does voices for all the characters and really brings the story to life. I could listen to a dozen more

Sandy *The world could end while I was reading and I would never notice*
A lovely easy read (or in my case listen) with just enough red herrings and complications to make it enjoyable.

Miss Marple is on holiday in the West Indies, where a seemingly innocuous conversation with another holiday guest leads to his murder.

Miss Marple is in the Caribbean for a rest paid for by her nephew, Raymond West. Her respite is suddenly interrupted by the death of Major Palgrave, one of her fellow guests at the hotel. Convinced that the major's death was not at all natural, she begins to ask difficult questions which leads to her solving this whodunit. I always find her stories having clever plots with interesting characters and this one was no different. I especially loved this book because of the setting of the West Indies ...more

Vacation reading!

Indeed, I read the whole thing on a plane en route from the Caribbean.

Here, Christie's well-beloved elderly sleuth, Miss Marple, is visiting a resort on Trinidad. When one of her fellow vacationers passes away, everyone, including the doctor, assumes that it was the man's high blood pressure and unhealthy lifestyle finally catching up with him.

Miss Marple, however, is suspicious. Something about this affair doesn't sit quite well with her, and she starts poking her nose into t

Miss Marple has a pretty generous nephew; he's sent her to the West Indies for a nice relaxing vacation. Of course, there's only so much time one can spend sitting on the beach and knitting, chatting with the other guests of one's seaside hotel. Unfortunately, one of these guests, Major Palgrave, passes away. Everyone else believes that it was natural causes, but Marple is not convinced and decides to investigate.

This was a pleasant enough mystery. I particularly enjoyed Marple's conversations w

This is one of the few Miss Marple books where she is the main character from beginning to end. Many of the other books she make sporadic appearances and does not drive the storyline. This time Miss Marple is a little out of her element. She is on a Caribbean Island for her health. A garrulous old man tells her that he met a murderer and tells other stories of murders. The next day, he is dead. It appears to be a natural death, but Miss Marple is suspicious. She begins her investigation by quest ...more

And another Agatha Christie done for my quest to read (& reread) all of her books. I saw the Mystery! production within the last year or two. This one was a little "fish out of water" for Miss M, sent on a Caribbean vacation by her nephew. It took her a bit to get her feet under her, she had so many strangers to sort out among her fellow guests and the owners and staff of the hotel. No supporting cast from her beloved St. Mary's Mead, no one who knows she has a razor sharp mind when it comes ...more

انها لمن افضل الروايات التي قرأتها
هي حتمًا رواية ستترك في عالم من الشك ,,فبينما توقعت القاتل,خانتني توقعاتي اتي غالبًا ما تكون صحيحة

انها تجعلك تدوخ من كثر التفكير

Knowing whodunit, rereading is still pleasure. Christie cleverly complicates and confounds. Christie, at her best, makes stereotypical eccentrics believable, plucks essential clues, weaves questionable motivations and messy realisms to confound the reader before extricating the solution.

Hotel guest death among rumors of heart trouble, blood pressure pill bottle found in room, is incident "soon forgotten. Life here was sunshine, sea, and social pleasures" p 27. Until hotel maid Victoris returns

"Like to see the picture of a murderer?"

Major Palgrave was the man with a million stories, and everyone vacationing at the lovely Golden Palm Hotel on the Caribbean island of St. Honoré tried to avoid him like the plague. Once he got started, he never stopped. His latest victim, so to speak, was Jane Marple, who had come to the Golden Palm to recuperate after a serious bout of pneumonia. Knitting bag in hand, Miss Marple was sitting, half listening and making polite replies once in a while, unti

Miss Marple's nephew is afraid for her health and offers her a holiday in the Caribbean (West Indies). In one of the islands, Miss Marple does what she does best: gossiping and knitting. One day, Major Palgrave tells her that he has the photo of a murderer but sees something that frightens him before showing it to her. The next day the Major is found dead, and Jane Marple believes it is murder.

I was able to figure out half the puzzle, but I got the other half totally wrong. That is to say, I was

To recover from being ill, Miss Marple's generous nephew has paid for her to take a holiday at the Golden Palm Resort on the Caribbean island of St Honore. She is not really enjoying her stay. Marple half listens as long-winded Major Palgrave tells her stories from his past that he tells anyone who will listen. But when he asks if she would like to see a snapshot of a murderer, Major Palgrave now has Marple's full attention. However, Palgrave suddenly hides this photo back in his wallet when som ...more

This Miss Marple novel has been the basis of at least one movie. While vacationing at The Golden Palm Hotel Miss Marple meets Major Palgrave, an older gentleman who has been boring everyone with tales of his past. He asks Miss Marple if she would like to see a picture of a murderer. He has told her an interesting story of two separate murders he believes to have been committed by the same man. As he is withdrawing the photo from his wallet, he looks over Miss Marple's shoulder and becomes very f ...more

Read as a "palate cleanser" following the recently read account of a true life serial killer which still haunts me. This story can be read in a single day and involves Miss Marple not only thinking but actually creeping about and spying through windows. The Caribbean setting is superfluous, this is Miss Marple unravelling which of the hotel guests is a previous killer in an attempt to prevent further murders. As usual there is a high body count but nobody who dies would be missed particularly an ...more

I'm not normally a Miss Marple fan, but I really liked this one. Normally Miss Marple is too passive a detective for my liking, but she really showed spunk in this one. They mystery was decent and interesting and I really liked the background characters. Emilia Fox did a great job narrating this audiobook. I'm going to have to pay attention to the narrators for Miss Marple books. I'd listen to another one narrated by her because I think she gives life to Miss Marple.

“Lie is more worth living, more full of interest when you are likely to lose it. It shouldn't be, perhaps, but it is. When you're young and strong and healthy, and life stretches ahead of you, living isn't really important at all. It's young people who commit suicide easily, out of despair from love, sometimes from sheer anxiety and worry. But old people know how valuable life is and how interesting. - Jane Marple” 10 likes
