The Clocks
The Clocks: A Hercule Poirot Mystery | Agatha Christie
Sheila Webb expected to find a respectable blind lady waiting for her at 19 Wilbraham Crescentnot the body of a middle-aged man sprawled across the living room floor. But when old Miss Pebmarsh denies sending for her in the first place, or of owning all the clocks that surround the body, its clear that they are going to need a very good detective. This crime is so complicated that it must be quite simple, declares Hercule Poirot. But theres a murderer on the loose, and time is ticking away.

Although a Poirot novel, he is absent for a majority of the book. Evidently much older and much retired, he is still an impressive presence. He ultimately helps Colin Lamb and Detective Hardcastle break through the extraneous trappings of a mysterious murder. Clocks, mysterious phone calls, misidentification. Every time Poirot spoke, I found myself reading it in the voice of David Suchet‘s Hercule Poirot. I had to laugh at myself. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

@wanderer15 and I left right after our wedding on Sunday for a honeymoon in England! We are starting with 3 days at a reading retreat on the Suffolk coast. It has been relaxing and lovely so far! There are 8 guests in total and we are reading, talking about books over meals, going on short walks, and drinking lots of tea. Last night we ate with Sophie Hannah, whose Poirot novels I love! So it was fitting that I started with a reread of this novel.

An ok Christie, but not my favorite. The clues seemed fairly obvious and the mystery, overworked. Poirot didn‘t do much and then likened his role as master to dogs (investigators). 🤨 #MountTBR

I did not like this one that much. Poirot appeared very late and was not that much involved... very disappointing ☹️ It was boring too and the conclusion was not shocking to me 😑

Moony Ja so ging es mir mit dem "Miss Marple" Krimi im März. Ich fange jetzt mit "Blauer Montag" von Nicci French an. Kennst du die Reihe bereits? 4y
Marybook @Moony Ja manchmal ist das leider so ☹️ Nein die Reihe sagt mir nichts... worum gehts ? 4y
Moony Es ist ein Psychothriller und hat als Ermittlerin die Unterstützung einer Psychotherapeutin. Im ersten Fall geht es um vermisste Kinder. Ich bin sehr gespannt. 4y
Marybook @Moony klingt interessant 🙂 4y

A pretty good later Christie. I think her dislike of Poirot is showing, as he mostly stays behind the scenes in this one while others do the active detective work. An unidentified man is murdered in a blind woman‘s home, surrounded by clocks all turned to the same time. Many red herrings ensue.

1) a mint green digital clock that I got when I was 10. It made me feel very grown up. I took that clock to college!
2) a couple musician memoirs
3) 35 for a little more than a month!
4) Nope, but within 100 miles of where I've lived most my life. Actually, within like 2 miles of where I've lived most my life.
Happy Friyay!!!

Classic Christie - many clues, a few red herrings, a little Poirot. The lead detective and a very interested friend carry the narrative. Poirot enters as a consulting detective.

Such a brilliant read! Dame Agatha Christie NEVER disappoints! I was hooked from the first page and had no idea where this book would go! A fantastic mystery! #AgathaChristie #bookcommunity #bibliophile #bookworm #bookporn #bookaholic #booknerd

Two of my current reads. I'm honestly so disappointed with myself with the lack of reading I did yesterday, it's ridiculous. I'm hoping I can read more after work later today and tonight. Both these books are amazing so far! #bookstack #booknerd #agathachristie #theclocks #1q84 #murakami #bookworm #bibliophile #bookandcandle

So, I'm not using a watermark on my photos anymore and I also changed my Litsy name to match my new bookstagram name. I remade bookstagram today! I was going to delete all my photos with TheOtherMother watermark on them but I got so far and got bored. So ignore that. 💁🏼 my new BG is private so if you want to add me @MythicReads drop a comment x

Chapter 13 contains a fantastic description of a secondhand bookstore: "Inside, it was clear that the books owned the shop rather than the other way about. Everywhere they had run wild and taken possession of their habitat, breeding and multiplying and clearly lacking any strong hand to keep them down."

Enjoyed it overall, but the ending felt rather rushed? Or maybe it was too many revelations at one go. Or just some things unexplained.

123 pages in, really enjoying it so far.

Probably my favorite Christie mystery so far. Love the characters, plot, and ending. If you like mystery and a bit of romance, this is for you!
