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 say this,...

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 twist by revea...

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 is about and t...

لا شك أن هذه الرواية هي من أجمل وأغرب وأعقد ما قرأت لأجاثا... النهاية كانت صادمة وخارجة عن كل التوقعات , وكان التشويق سيد الموقف في كل صفحة من صفحات الرواية هذه الرواية إبداع حقيقي من السيدة أجاثا... أنصحكم بها يا أصدقاء..

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 always the case!)...

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 Christie will...

This Hercule Poirot is a genuine tour de force, for a very good reason that you completely understand as soon as you finish reading it.

Η αλήθεια είναι πως έχω συναντηθεί με την Αγκάθα Κρίστι και στο παρελθόν, αλλά μπορώ να πω, πως μόνο αυτές τις ημέρες την γνώρισα. Ο λόγος είναι ότι όταν την διάβασα στην προεφηβεία, το τελευταίο πράγμα που είχα στο μυαλό μου είναι να λύνω φόνους. Και έτσι στο πέρασμα του χρόνου την λησμόνησα και...
