And Then There Were None | Agatha Christie

Hmm, I have mixed feelings about this #audiobook #mystery. On the one hand, it was deliciously creepy and dark, plus I loved the closed space of being set on an island. On the other hand, I feel like Christie broke the contract between mystery reader and author with the way that the mystery unfolds and the killer is revealed. You can't give the reader false information and then explain later how what was described didn't actually happen.

kgriffith I think there are two very distinct kinds of mysteries: ones where you‘re given enough information to at least have a hunch so you feel very smart if you‘re right when all is revealed, and ones where there‘s at least one piece you could never have thought up so you‘re guaranteed to be surprised by the ending. I‘m generally angry about the latter, but this one was just so damned good that I forgave her 😊 Now I want to re-read it! 6h

Growing up under a regime that held quick public executions for people denounced by their neighbors, and let people starve in the streets, Lee felt the need to experience the outside world before she became an adult at 18. She slipped over to China. She never went back. Overall it‘s a dramatic journey well worth a read! 💜#audiobook

Started a new #audiobook today (another I heard about on litsy) and took a pic of my front yard trees. I‘ve been struggling some this week with walking but got off the couch & went, so that‘s an accomplishment. I missed a few days of walking & have felt it the last 2. Also came to yoga tonight, which made me feel much better. #BFCr3
Goal change—I‘m adding 10 books onto the challenge. Already exceeded 6 books & not starting work for 2 more wks.

This #audiobook kept me company on a sleepless night. It‘s a quiet, epistolary novel. The two correspondents are at a similar place in their lives—examining past choices, their current loneliness, and the changes they need to make to create a happier future for themselves. They develop a beautiful friendship that may very well deepen into love.

readinginthedark I love epistolary novels; maybe I should try this! 17h
Louise @readinginthedark Sure! It has received good reviews on Amazon. It‘s nicely written. I just found it to be a bit predictable. 15h
Bookzombie I really enjoyed this one. I think for me it might have been a right book, right time situation. 11h
Louise @Bookzombie I can see how that could happen. The book‘s gentle message about re-directing one‘s trajectory is a good thing to hear at various points in one‘s life. 8h

Finished listening to this audiobook. My husband read the physical copy and was psyched about it. It was a very fun listen to. #readyplayerone #audiobook

I read so many "psychological thrillers", many of which are utterly unbelievable or completely forgettable. This is not the case here!! I found this one to be riveting and well put together. I don't want to say too much about the plot but it did keep me guessing and entertained the whole way through! #audiobook #libby also just realized I could use the hashtag #recommendsday ?

Maybe I missed something in the text, but why does Jim Dale read the Murray twins having thick Irish accents? Even if their parents are Irish, they were raised in such an eclectic environment by so many people, they should have a much more ambiguous accent. #audiobook #pedantry

A quiet, thoughtful novel about friendship and grief. I especially love the strong links between art and nature and healing, presaged in the epigraph by Rachel Carson that begins: “Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.” The wonderful #audiobook narration by Jenna Lamia makes up for the absence of shark drawings that are in the text edition. Grade 4-7

Two more miles this morning. I might need to go on another walk this evening so I can finish this book! It‘s really starting to pick up. I tend to get more engrossed in audiobooks that I listen to while walking/running. I‘m able to focus on the story more without interruptions. #audiobook #mystery #bfc

Heatherfeather Love listening to books while walking 2d
