it was amazing

Hrm... this was my first Agatha Christie book and it shall certainly NOT be my last! Currently, it is 2:30 in the morning. I had planned to go to bed at midnight, but I foolishly (yet wisely) picked up "The Moving Finger". I have had to go to the bathroom for the last 20 minutes did not get off the couch because I simply could NOT put this book down let alone go to bed! From about page 95 (in the 195 page version that I read) onward, I had suspected a certain character to be the "Poison Pen". My assumptions grew enormously as the book moved on, but there is a tremendous plot twist at the end. I have a bit of difficulty remembering who's who in books, and this novel was no exception. I did enjoy the personalities of each individual. My favorite character might have been Mrs. Dane Calthrop because of her straightforward personality and because she seemed like a woman who did not entirely fit the general norm. Overall, it was a great read. I would recommend this book to people who like mystery (which is a given b/c it's Agatha Christie), possibly romantics, and people who are okay with some violence. Age-wise: probably 17+, although it is not by any means just for young adults. I just would probably not allow a 15 year old to read this.
