    I went into this book with a bit of an attitude. Roger Ackroyd is the only Agatha Christie book featured on the list of 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die, and I was skeptical about the List's claim that this was the only Christie book worth reading. But, as much as it pains me to...

    I read mysteries in between denser reads and Dame Christie never disappoints me. As in all of her cases involving Inspector Hercule Poirot, Christie unearths layer upon layer of the case, leaving her readers guessing until the very end. Just when you think whodunit, she throws in a twi...

    Wow just Wow! Agatha Christie had me from the first page, hook line & sinker and she never lost my attention until the very end. No wonder this is considered to be one of her very best. I do not want to say too much about this book, I mean the title pretty much tells you what it...

    I saw a few reviews, before I read this book, saying it was the best Agatha Christie they had read and I think I agree! I raced through it in a few hours though still making sure I absorbed every fact and every clue. Not that it did me any good. I had plenty of ideas as to who the m...

    Just finished a re-read of this classic. I remember the first time I read it, the twist at the end knocked my socks off! My second thought was: "Agatha Christie understands evil in a way that is a little frightening!" This time through, I remembered how it turns out (which is not al...

    A mystery that lasts till the last page and ends with an unprecedented plot twist. One of the favorite books that I read in 2015. Nothing much can be said about the story or plot, or anything for that matter, without dropping a major spoiler. But trust me, it's bloody clever. Agatha...

    The Murder or Roger Ackroyd is one of the most well-known mysteries written by Agatha Christie and the only one to be featured in the 1001 Books To Read Before You Die list. After having read it I understand why it is so well praised. As with all her mysteries, it leaves you guessi...

    Agatha Christie offers her readers an invite, an invite to come and solve her tantalising murder mystery. It was a real tricky one, though I did have my suspicions very early on. There was a certain emphasis on a tiny bit of information that we didn?t really need to know that gave...
