With pressure mounting, the intelligence service appoints two unlikely spies, Tommy and Tuppence Beresford. Their mission: to seek out a man and a woman from among the colorful guests at Sans Souc ...more
إنها رواية تعتمد على التجسس وهذا الصنف الذي أحبه، كما أن شخصيات الرواية الرئيسية " تومي و توبينس " شخصيات أكثر من رائعة، كل شيء كان واضحً في هذه الرواية: الأحداث والشخصيات والنهاية لذلك أراها تستحق أعلى تقييم.
وأنصح أي شخص يحب الروايات البوليسية بها ولا أظنه سيندم إطلاقاً.
أما الذين لا يحبون الروايات البوليسية فلا أعدهم بالكثير، ولكني واثق برأي محبي الروايات البوليسية فأنا وهم من الصنف ن ...more
The theme of the story was that even middle-aged detectives can be as sharp as young detectives. The two protagonists had a hard time finding work during the war because they were considered too old to be of any use. However, they were brought in ...more

Até hoje só tinha lido algumas histórias soltas de Agatha Christie e um par de aventuras do seu famoso detetive Hercule Poirot. Na verdade, com exceção do livro "Noite sem Fim", ao qual fiquei totalmente rendida, nenhum dos outros me convenceu a dar lugar de destaque à autora, no meu pequeno grupo de escritores favoritos. Porém, apesar de Poirot ser a sua personagem mais conhecida e estimada pelos leitores, existem outras que, até e ...more
The Tommy and Tuppence books are an intriguing series about a witty, charming, and confident couple, who become amateur sleuths. The series follows their career over several decades—from the youth, family life, and old age. Wonderful characters, clever dialogue, and intricate plots.
Tommy and Tuppence's antics are hilarious and absolutely delightful, and although their actual progress in catching N or M is more interesting and much stronger than the actual resolution, which I found was comparatively weak ...more
A typically wonderful book by Christie. Light hearted and lyrical. Tommy and Tuppence are ...more
Once again, this is more of a suspense/spy thriller than a true mystery novel. I do like it perhaps a little ...more
In "N or M?", they are in charge of trying to find the German spies to prevent them from winning the war.
First off, I loved the fact that we got to see a little bit of their children in the novel. It was really cool to see what they'd had been doing in the time between "Partners in Crime" and "N or M?". Albert comes back to help as well! I loved the fact that Christie told us what was going on in their lives.
Second, I can't believe I did ...more
This is one of Agatha Christie's lesser known novels, as it features Tommy and Tuppence Beresford, rather than Poirot or Miss Marple. The first time we encounter these two bright young things, it was at the end of the First World War, and they become two young adventurers, seeking a master criminal known as Mr Bro ...more

The boarding house contains retired Army men, a mother and her young daughter, several elderly women who would rather spend their days gossiping and playing card games - and a spy or ...more
Book # 3 in the Tommy and Tuppence series has our couple bemoaning the fact that they’ve been basically put out to pasture. They recall how very successful they were in ferreting out spies during the Great War (i.e. WW I), and bemoan the fact that their government seems not to want to use them this time around. Ah, but there is a small job that Tommy might help with. There is no role for Tuppence, but you can’t expect her to take THAT lying down!

فيها كذا حاجة شدتني أوي بخلآف مضمون الرواية نفسها و أحداثها الرائعة :
1- شدة العلاقة اللي بين "تومي" و زوجتة مسز "بروسفورد" ؛ إن كل حاجة بيشاركوها مع بعض
2-الإختلآف و التشابكـ الواضح جداً فِ الأحداث .
3- شخصيات كتييير .
4- بتتغير إحساسك كذا مرة ع مدار الأحداث بين( التشويق- فرح - زعل) .
5- النهايـــة حِلوة جداًاًاً.
رائعة كعادة اجاثا كريستي ..

I may have read this book previously because I was reading it, I kept thinking I've read this before, then maybe not, then back to yes I have. Anyway, it's a fun read - love Tommy and Tuppence. Tony threw me for a loop with all of his marvelous comments.
I loved the easy reading style of Agatha Christie and it feels a bit like coming home to read a novel of hers after a very long time. ...more
