Lola Thanks so much! :D

Evgeny Nobody can write more puzzling mysteries than her. Even now, almost 100 years later.


message 4: by Lola (new)

Lola That must be why she is still the best writer of mysteries of all time :)

You can say it again. I would love to find somebody who writes mysteries as good, but I cannot.

Nadya Great review! The book seems interesting. I'm probably going to try it


message 7: by S.G.D. (new)

S.G.D. Singh I loved this book!! And every one of her Poirot and Miss Marple books with the only exception being, The Murder of Roger Akroyd'


message 8: by Lola (new)

Lola Really? That the one by Christie that I was planning on reading next. ;O It has such good ratings!


message 9: by S.G.D. (new)

S.G.D. Singh I got mad at the ending--you should read it though! Now I'm curious what you'd think!


Carol She's So Novel꧁꧂ Some of her later books were impenetrable - it's believed she had a form of alzheimers/dementia. IMO the last good book she wrote was Endless Night, although The Hallowe'en Party was enjoyable.

Dαɴιjα I've read over 30 books by Agatha Christie, and enjoyed most of them. My problem with her books is that I forget those stories pretty easily. What I remember about Murder on the Orient Express is that I read it while I had a fever. That's it.
The Murder of Roger Ackroyd was a good one. I liked the ending. :)

Hayat Great review, Lola. I haven't read any of Agatha Christie work yet, but I might start my intro with this one. :)

♥Rachel♥ Wonderful review, Lola! I've LOVED Agatha Christie for so long. There's a reason she was/is so popular. :)

Lola I'm only just starting perusing her greatness but I'm sure I'll get to the point of worshiping her someday hha ;) thank you!!


message 15: by Kirsten (new)

Kirsten Agatha is my favorite mystery author. No author would dare to write such tricky puzzles as she did. I suggest A Caribbean Mystery for a book featuring Miss Marple and The Secret Adversary for a book featuring Tommy and Tuppence.

Darina Lovely review!! and Merry Christmas ^_^


message 17: by Exina (new)

Exina Glad you enjoyed it, Lola! It's a great story, I love Christie too. Nice review! :)


A Random Enthusiast I love it, too! It's one of my favorite books of all time. I'm really glad you like it!


Jen ♥Star-Crossed Book Blog♥ Wonderful review, Lola! I use to adore Agatha Christie when I was younger, maybe I'll have to pick up another book by her again. :)

In Murder of Roger Akroyd Agatha was not entirely fair with her clues (sorry I cannot tell more without spoilers). This made for a very surprising ending though. As such some people consider this to be her best book and some really do not like it.

In my opinion all Poirot books are great - Poirot himself saves even the average ones by the strength of this character. The only exception I know is The Big Four. The Dame of Mystery tried to create a parody of Sherlock Holmes vs. Prof. Moriarty showdown, but miserably failed (I need to notice that she rarely failed in her writings).


message 21: by Lola (new)

Lola Ha! Well, honestly I don't know about the whole series, since this is my first Hercule Poirot mystery, but I can't imagine, with him as a protagonist, any book to be even on the threshold of being boring! Go you!


message 22: by George (new)

George Jankovic Gret review Lola! Agatha Christy is great and this book is especially cool. I read quite a few of her books as a kid (although I don't remember which ones anymore hahaha). I don't remember a single one being bad. My sister read dozens of her books too. Enjoy!


Melissa ♥ Dog/Wolf Lover ♥ Martin Bloody brilliant, right :-)


message 24: by Camillie (new)

Camillie Eve Murder on the Orient Express was the first Christie's book that I've read and I loved it! Have you read 'And there were none' or 'A.B.C."? They are equally fantastic :)


message 25: by Lola (new)

Lola I've read ''And Then There Were None'' and very much enjoyed it, but not as much as this one. Not ''A.B.C.'' though, so I'll have to make time for it! :D
