Murder of Roger Ackroyd | Agatha Christie

This was a fun listen. I don‘t tend to read or listen to mysteries very often, but I always enjoy those by Agatha Christie when I do.

Tanisha_A I loved this 6d
Daisey @Gezemice @Tanisha_A I've only listened to this and The Orient Express. I think I liked that one just a little more. I need to read some more! 6d
RaeLovesToRead I love this book and I didn't realise that Hastings narrates the audiobook - awesome! 3d

#Reading1001 random heart picture for @Cinfhen

Loving is the story of the life of an English household based in Ireland we see things from the point of view of both downstairs and upstairs. No-one is particularly well behaved, through in some children and a missing ring and confusion reigns supreme.

Not a lot really happens and none of the characters were memorable.

Not terrible, not great and as a bonus not long.

Cinfhen Love it 🥰 Thanks so much for sharing 💕💕💕💕 2w

I appreciated this more than any memoir I‘ve listened to for a while, but I think most of that is due to it being more. I could relate to the personal journey through grief, but the details of falconry and the literary aspects were much more interesting to me.

Suet624 I was surprised by all the information about White. 1mo
Daisey @Suet624 I was too, but since I had just listened to The Once and Future King, it was perfect timing. 1mo
ImperfectCJ I finished this book wanting to take up falconry. Luckily for my cat, I haven't followed through. (So far.) 1mo
Daisey @ImperfectCJ I‘ve always thought it sounded interesting and agree this made it sound even more fascinating. 4w

Hmmm, I really struggled with this book. On the one hand it was really well-written,on the other hand I just felt like I wasn‘t the target audience for this book. I am however glad that I finished the book, because the last two pages of the book turned out to be the best pages. 😀#1001books #reading1001

#Reading1001 Random bug spotted while out walking.

3⭐️ in some ways the themes of this novel make it feel more modern than it is however the attitudes about women and education really annoyed me.

Pacing is slow and meandering useful if you need help falling asleep.

I checked this #audiobook out to listen to just as I was finishing listening to The Once and Future King. It wasn‘t until I was reading other reviews of that book that I realized the author T.H. White is discussed in this book. It‘s a happy coincidence that I‘m following that audiobook with this one, and it‘s adding to my appreciation of both, although not enough to change my rating of the former.

So fun going through this journal today! Brings back a lot of memories for two books I originally read over a year ago. Great comments from everyone, and I loved our #Reading1001 picks.

And thank you so much for the wonderful bookmarks @Daisey The George RR Martian quote is actually on my Litsy profile, it‘s one of my favorites.

I enjoyed this story, but I was not wowed by it. The discussion of math and cryptography was intriguing. However, I was somewhat frustrated by the portrayal of the female characters and wished for deeper character development overall. After all the hours of building connections between timelines, the ending seemed abrupt as well.
