About the Author
About the Author: A poetry and music patron, Dame Agatha Mary Clarissa Christie resolved to establish her career in either of these two fields. Her first short story was called The House of Beauty and focused on the bizarre world of dreams and frenzy. She slowly established a solid foreground for her writing and grew to be listed in the Guinness Book of World Records. She has also written 6 romantic works under the pen name Mary Westmacott. Her stage play The Mousetrap is the world's longest running play.

The narrative of the book is very clever and since the beginning, little crumbs of hints are laid by the writer that a ( very alert) reader can pick but such is the masterful narration that the reader pays least notice to these crumbs. It strikes only when the murderer is finally revealed. A great one day read for me.
The book is good, holds the interest. Nothing seems worthless as the narrator never beats about the bush. There's something of value in every line, every gesture and remark. So keep your mind open while reading.
Also, it's quite cheap, got it just for 125 bucks.
There are number of sub plots with each character through their actions drawing attention to themselves.
Honestly, I personally didn't enjoy the character of Hercule. He is over the top and incessantly annoying. I guess when Agatha wrote this novels, everyone (even now a ton of people) would have found Hercule or her story to be unique but many of us have grown up watching a number of shows with similar plot line.
One thing that I should give credit to Hercule ( or Christie), he lays almost all the facts in front of you and if you can piece all of them together, you can, on your own, find the murderer.
I'm really gonna miss Caroline. She is nosy and doesn't mind her business- which in reality I hate but as a character I loved her especially the relationship and conversation between the siblings.
I ordered the facsimile edition and I must say it looks so sophisticated. It came in good condition and nicely delivered by uread.
You're in for a real treat if you decide to give this book a shot. And you know what? You SHOULD. You cannot love murder mysteries and not read this one. So go ahead, prepare to have your mind blown.
