The Murder of Roger Ackroyd
The Murder of Roger Ackroyd | AGATHA. CHRISTIE
Agatha Christie's most daring crime mystery - an early and particularly brilliant outing of Hercule Poirot, 'The Murder of Roger Ackroyd', with its legendary twist, changed the detective fiction genre for ever.Roger Ackroyd knew too much. He knew that the woman he loved had poisoned her brutal first husband. He suspected also that someone had been blackmailing her. Now, tragically, came the news that she had taken her own life with a drug overdose.But the evening post brought Roger one last fatal scrap of information. Unfortunately, before he could finish the letter, he was stabbed to death...

A classic Agatha Christie book, and one of her early books starring Hercule Poirot, interestingly without Hastings at this side. An interesting story with quite a different ending. Definitely recommended.

My 3rd book finished for the #JoysofJune Readathon, and the 10th book for the #BigJuneReadthon.

Clwojick I‘ll have to check it out… I‘ve enjoyed some Hercule books, but been completely bored by others. 2mo
Andrew65 @Clwojick Think this is one of the better ones. 2mo

This is literally the first time I've ever guessed the identity of a killer before reaching the end of a mystery novel (before I'd ever reached the middle, no less). It was a thing I intuited rather than deduced, so I guess I'm most like Caroline out of all the characters 😄 I trusted that Christie would find a way to make the conclusion fit the evidence, and by God she did. After so many other mystery books and shows that rely on obfuscation or..

The_Penniless_Author ..shaggy plotting to conceal what happened, it's such a treat to read an author who gives you every bit of information you need to solve the case, yet creates such an intricate plot that it seems impossible any of the characters could be guilty. She's still the gold standard all these years later.🪙 2mo

Great mystery all around the bush, but didn‘t leave me “wow!” This was an, oh so that‘s how it worked. Let alone I had trouble figuring the murderer because I didn‘t really believe any of them did it. It was so far open, all about truth you can verify. Which is why the closing left me confused. Yes, it makes sense when Poirot states it. The reason of murder is what got me most confused. The whole way of doing it was timed amazingly

Welp. Mind blown. Will not reveal the spoiler, but even when being told I would not guess who the murderer was I did not guess it. Even when it was revealed that said character has been lying about some things, I jokingly said to my boyfriend "I'm going to lose my mind if x is the killer, there's no way." Alas, mind lost. Thoroughly enjoyable and quotable book. The scene where Poirot is introduced is especially memorable.

Thanks for the tag @TheSpineView !!

1. I don't think books themselves have changed that much, but I have access to so many more of them than I used to, through interlibrary loan, ebooks, etc. so sometimes I do feel like the percentage of “good“ books I read is lower than when I was growing up. But also - maybe I'm just pickier?? 😂
2. I'm terrible at guessing. I remember being mind-blown by the tagged book.

I‘m not sure if this is my favorite Hercule Poirot mystery, but it is very good and rightfully makes it on to many ‘must read in your lifetime‘ lists. Agatha Christie is the master of mystery done right — the clues are all there but it‘s quite a strain on the ‘little grey cells‘ to figure out. I also love the humor Poirot adds, although apparently Christie herself did not care for him. 😆

Recently enjoyed this little gem! Didn‘t realise how much I enjoy Agatha Christie. I‘ve read a few now and will continue to read. Love the twists and turns in the book, and love that it leaves you guessing until the very end who the murderer is. I won‘t tell! But it‘s a well written book! (Most Agatha Christie‘s are I know)

This is almost certainly my favorite Christie novel so far. I won't go into detail about what was so fun about it because I don't think I could say anything without spoiling the solution to the mystery (I am not nearly as adept in my speech as M. Poirot), but I enjoyed this one so much, I'm considering looking up some of the Poirot mysteries I've always ignored on PBS.

Ruthiella The Poirot series starring David Suchet is impeccable . I highly recommend it! 😀 It‘s also fun to note where the script deviate and/or enhances the novel. 1y
ImperfectCJ @Ruthiella Thanks for the endorsement! I've put the first DVD set on hold at the library. Maybe my kids will get into it, too. They tend to like Masterpiece shows. 1y

This is rated as one of the top murder mysteries written by AC. It‘s a good one-largely because of the author‘s use of surprise literary devices. Can‘t say much more without spoiling it, but who killed Roger Ackroyd?

My first Agatha Christie book! This was super fun. Several times I laughed out loud at the jokes, and Poirot was fun to finally read about. I did guess the murderer about halfway through, and I was so excited I was right. The last couple pages, however, did have me raising my eyebrows and opening my eyes wide. Cuz WHOA. Anyway, this was a great Murder mystery!

Oh My! This my fastest read so far. Blown-away! Unputdownable, literally! And to think this is my first Agatha Christie's book! It's no wonder why Christie is one of the best selling authors of all time. She is unbelievable. Her mystery is so layered I am at my wits end. Her prose is calculated and brillianty constructed. Her characters are well-defined and so clear. Glad to know there are more books of the same author waiting to be devoured. 🙏
