The Murder of Roger Ackroyd | Agatha Christie
Agatha Christie's ginius for detective fiction is unparalleled. Her worldwide popularity is phenomenal, her characters engaging, her plots spellbinding.

She is truly the one and only Queen of Crime.The Murder Of Roger AckroydVillage rumor hints that Mrs. Ferrars poisoned her husband, but no one is sure. Then there's another victim in a chain of death. Unfortunately for the killer, master sleuth Hercule Poirot takes over the investigation.

While putting my book away I saw this list at the back of her book. Looks like I have my reading list set! Now I just need to look for these books at thrift stores, yard sales, second hand book shops, etc. Sometimes I think the hunt for the book is just as exciting as reading them. #tbr #bookhunt #mystery #bookhaul #readinglist

I tore through this one last weekend, and I‘m still thinking about it. This was one of those endings where I felt tricked, then thought, “Well, of course...”, but then kept thinking of reasons the murderer couldn‘t be who it turned out to be, and then kept finding myself proved wrong when I flipped back to certain scenes. I want to re-read it in order to pick up on the clues I missed.

Centique I love the way this book makes you do that - will have to reread it myself and do the same. 2mo
Tamra Oh that sounds fun! 2mo
BarbaraJean @Tamra It really is! @Centique I‘m thinking about watching the adaptation with David Suchet tonight, to satisfy that re-read itch! Oh, and I forgot to note that this was book 6/12 for #bookfitnesschallenge—💪🏼 (edited) 2mo

Read this in one sitting! Full of the characteristic Christie charm I have come to love and a twist I almost didn‘t see coming. Though everything clicked in place the page before the reveal 😅I can see why this one is heavily recommended. I thought the end could have been wrapped up quicker than it was but overall I really liked it! And Then There Were None is still my favorite though! 4🌟 -This is me getting caught up on reviews 😅

My 3rd Christie. Hello again, Poirot and team! ?️

Excerpt from the introduction by Laura Thompson: "...at the end of twenty-five chapters it suddenly throws the whole tray of sherry glasses into the air with the bouleversement of its solution."

That's an intriguing statement.

Mehso-so

This was a failure of expectations rather than material. When I heard that this was Christie's most ingenious, I took it to mean novelty of form as well as end. However, the ingenuity is all in the ending (and granted, its concealment throughout). Otherwise a conventional Christie puzzle mystery--I just happened not to be in the mood for more of the same (multiple suspects and plots surrounding a wealthy household told by a Hastings-like narrator)

academiconbreak There are a few entertaining character portraits, e.g. Catherine, the sister. Though in general the woman were drawn through a somewhat sexist lens and it was not enough to feel invested in the characters' fates. 5mo
academiconbreak It's still a landmark in being one of many times in which Christie's ingenuity marked a first in the genre, and more constant fans of murder mystery should enjoy it more than me. 5mo

Both the Poirot series & Miss Marple series have had a place in my heart since I was 9yrs old, being handed my first adult novel(The Mysterious Affair At Styles)by my Auntie Lilla, who kept me in 2ndhand books for years. #24in48 #readathon

Love mystery books? This one is a must read.
And trust me, coming from a huge Christie's fan, recommending this one book of hers means it is really high on my all-time favourites list.
The writing is a bit unusual, and is not 100% the way other Poirot books are, but it's not a bad thing.
You will not guess the murderer, ever. And if you do, you certainly are a Sherlock. (Not a Poirot, he is one of a kind to me.)
Enjoy.

The murder mystery that made Dame Christie famous. And without spoiling anything I totally get that.

One of the first mysteries with private detective Hercule Poirot.

I haven‘t read a Christie crime in 20 yrs but will definitely read more now.

AnneCecilie @Insearchofbooks You must definitely have something to look forward to 9mo
AnneCecilie @erzascarletbookgasm This was one of Christie‘s favorites too, according to the introduction. The other being “The Murder on the Orient Express”. 9mo
Roos @AnneCecilie You are so right! Any other non-Christie crime recommendations for someone who loves mystery and cozy Britishness but is quite easily scared? 🙈 9mo
AnneCecilie @Roos I don‘t read as much crime as I once did. I‘ve also watched more cozy British crime than what I‘ve read. But I‘m really looking forward to Robert Galbraith‘s latest. I would definitely recommend the first 3 books. But not sure about the coziness. 9mo
Roos @AnneCecilie That's a perfect recommendation as I've read all four of the Strike books already! I absolutely love them, mainly because of Strike and Robin. Have fun reading Lethal White! 9mo
AnneCecilie @Roos I really like a lot of the Scandinavian crime writers; Anne Holt, Unni Lindell, Liza Marklund and off course Jo Nesbø. Not sure what languages the first 3 are translated into. 9mo

You can never, not in a million years, guess who the murderer is. NEVER. And if you did, well then to quote Poirot, you used your "little grey cells". I, on the other hand was screaming "it can't be" till the very last page, even while the murderer was confessing. If you read only one Christie in your entire life, READ THIS.

This book was pretty good. It was a good audiobook. I love listening to Agatha Christie books on Audio. I am also starting to enjoy listening to Hugh Fraser read them.

I didn‘t see the murderer coming. I usually can‘t figure out who the bad guys are in her books, which makes it great fun!

I came home with all these (26 books!) a couple weeks ago. A friend had a ton of old paperbacks he‘d gotten from his grandmother, he‘d gone through them & taken what he wanted, and he asked if I wanted any from what was left. 😁 When I got home, my husband asked what was in the bag & I changed the subject! But later he commented that I‘d been doing so well with not getting too many books this year...😬 I confessed, and we had a good laugh. 😂🤣

BarbaraJean What‘s intriguing and kind of hilarious is that there were a bunch of completely non-sequential series books. And it‘s not because they were picked over by my friend first—these are series he wasn‘t interested in! Of Brother Cadfael, there are books 2, 3, 7, 9, 11, 15, and 17. Maybe my friend‘s grandma didn‘t much like even numbers? 🤔😏 10mo

A super clever mystery for its time, voted in 2013 as the best crime novel ever by the British Crime Writers' Association. I wonder, however, if the ending is as surprising today as it was considered back then. I wager that a lot of readers will figure out Christie's ruse pretty early on, everything but the how. I read Christie for plot, not for prose, and as far as plot goes, this was very entertaining.

2 down, 3 books to go for my upcoming Oxford class! I had hoped to be further along but that first one was a chore. I‘m glad I read it for the historical significance but I am thrilled to be getting to Agatha Christie‘s novel. I have read it before but am fuzzy on the details so this should be a fun walk down memory lane. I can see how he is setting up the class discussion as each book subverts or propels the genre with its inclusion.

Agatha Christie does it again! I honestly had no idea who to suspect. After reading a few of Agatha‘s books I‘ve given up trying at this point - I‘m just along for the ride. I was initially concerned by the lack of Poirot at the beginning, but I didn‘t need to worry. He makes his appearance and puts those little grey cells to work! Love her characters and suspense building. Can‘t wait to pick up another one of her books!

#GetMovin #day22 #TheGreatest As far as I‘m concerned,the greatest crime writer of all time was Dame Agatha.Her books are just so readable & clever. She wrote two of the greatest detectives in Miss Marple & Hercule Poirot,but it‘s her supporting characters that I love. Hastings & Japp are fabulous foils for Poirot & Miss Marple‘s village of St Mary Mead is a character in its own right.My favourite though is Ariadne Oliver,the writer & apple lover!
