Alexa (AlexaNC) | 435 comments And here we can discuss the middle section of The Murder of Roger Ackroyd, Chapters 11 - 20. No comments allowed for anything past Chapter 20! But spoilers are allowed for anything up to Chapter 20 - so be careful if you haven't read that far yet!

Another Sheppard comment in Chapter 14: "It is a pity that a doctor is precluded by his profession from being able sometimes to say what he really thinks. I would have given anything to be able to answer 'Bunkum!'"

Chapter 12: Can anyone guess what everyone is hiding?

I did not guess Flora's secret. (view spoiler)

Don't feel bad. I thought it was Flora's mother who took the money.

I thought it was the stepson.

Poirot knows he can find a willing helper in Caroline. Caroline's gossip filled in some of what Dr. Sheppard wasn't going to tell.


Kimberley Challman | 19 comments I had not considered Flora for the theft, but I had considered Major Blunt's secret thoughts. But, maybe they were a little more noticeable.


Kimberley Challman | 19 comments It may be because my family plays games with some frequency, having played all kinds of games with my family, both my immediate and my extended, since I was young; but I thoroughly enjoyed the conversational back and forth during the game of Mah Jong, laughing out loud at times.


Carol She's So Novel꧁꧂  | 370 comments Yes I loved the mah jong game. I don't normally think of Christie as a witty writer, but that was indeed amusing!
