Passenger to Frankfurt | Agatha Christie

16 hours in and I just finished reading 9 hours. Over 700 pages read and some great books! Passenger to Frankfurt is not for everyone but I really enjoyed it. It is NOT a murder mystery. It is a spy novel with lots of politics. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Five Little Pigs | Agatha Christie

Pretty decent time for day one of #24in48 , I think. I‘ve started on this Christie novel and hope to get at least 2 more hours in tonight.

YouBookMe Hope you enjoy the book! I think it was my first Agatha Christie novel, which led to a long and happy binge where I read every book by her that I could get my hands on. 19h
erista @YouBookMe I‘m still making my way through all her books. Hope to someday conquer them all. I‘m about halfway in and enjoying it a lot so far! 18h
Readerann I just read this recently and really liked it. 17h

I felt it was an average who-done-it novel. It is easy to read and follow for the most part. There were a lot of characters to keep track of. It has enough mystery and thrill to keep the reader entertained from start to finish but I didn‘t enjoy it as much as I thought I would.

I wasn‘t entirely happy with the way the mystery was resolved: I have questions as to whether or not Agatha Christie gave the reader enough to figure it out it and whether the rather melodramatic cloak-and-dagger aspects rang true. For right now, I‘m giving this a 3.75/5.0 rating and, shelving it for a future re-read— at which point it may warrant a ratings upgrade 🚂

It‘s impossible for me to dislike a Christie novel! Although I didn‘t enjoy the setting or the cast of characters as much as other Poirot mysteries I‘ve read, I still flew through this. So many sneaky little clues and hidden details that contribute to the solving of the murder.

Really enjoyed being introduced to the funny & clever little man and his signature mustache!

Lady_Tigana_20 I read my first Christie in high school. Decided she cheated—no way to figure it out because she didn‘t give necessary info. Rejected her books for almost 30 years. Then I read a biography on her. It peaked my interest. I had my book club read and compare/contrast a Poirot and a Marple. I ended up reading every Marple; planning to start Poirot soon. So glad I gave her a second chance. 1d
laur89 @Lady_Tigana_20 This was exactly my thought when I read my first Christie, a few years ago. I was like ...well obviously I couldn‘t figure it out, there‘s no way I would‘ve known all those things! I do enjoy the simplicity of her writing and the fact it‘s all centered on the crime (no fluff). I have yet to read a Marple but I have one on my list! Which were your favorites? 1d

I have a soft spot for Agatha Christie-novels. My father‘s cousin left me her collection of all of Ms Christie‘s novels. They are old and not political correct at all, but they are the epitome of holiday reading to me 😀☀️😎📚#agathachristie #missmarple #holidayreading #summer

Henrik_Madsen I read this one on holiday last year so definitely a #vacationbook for me! 2d

Today‘s lunch menu:
Baked chimichangas & a Christie book!

Started the audiobook of Poirot #1. So much more fun to hear someone narrate this mystery with all the right accents!

Side note: The picture is from the Skinnytaste recipe I used to make my meal (my chimis didn‘t turn out as pretty, but tasted delish!). Recipe link below ⬇️
