Six Against the Yard | Agatha Christie, Margery Allingham, The Detection Club, Anthony Berkeley, Freeman Wills Crofts, Ronald Knox, Russell Thorndike
post image
Mehso-so

This lost points for a failed concept. The idea of the book (written in the ‘30s) is that six of the leading crime novelists of the day wrote a story with the theme “the perfect murder”, while a former Scotland Yard chief applies his knowledge to comment on whether the chosen method would indeed be a perfect murder. The individual stories are great, the police commentaries so full of “what ifs” that they do nothing but disappoint

Nothing like a good book and a pool! Snatching a few pages while Bean has swimming lessons! The instructors have been a godsend with helping him deal with his fear of water on his face.

Whose Body? | Dorothy L. Sayers

Lord Peter Wimsey is one of the great characters of mystery fiction. In Whose Body, Wimsey himself views the stark naked body lying in the tub. The brilliant detective untangles the murder in spite of incorrect assumptions by the police. Kept me guessing until the end. Good mystery with twists and turns, humor and wit. Well plotted with engaging characters. Sayers is a beautiful writer and I would recommend to those who love English mystery.

Busman's Honeymoon | Dorothy L. Sayers

Delicious, and Lord Peter is narrated by Ian Carmichael, but it is not “unabridged.” I know exactly what Lord Peter said to Harriet on the wedding night, and it‘s not included. The production is on the Libby app and at Internet Archive.

rretzler One of my favorite series. Too bad the audiobook is abridged. 10mo
jillrhudy It‘s a dramatization, as it turns out, from the BBC. Not strictly an audiobook 10mo

Absolutely love this mystery. The main character is a female detective in the 1930's who is definitely ahead of the times. Witty and charming. Watch my review at https://youtu.be/E1nb6S1t4FY

A quick question to my fellow Littens. I'm trying to give Agatha Christie another shot... which one of her books do you recommend I read?

I have read Absent in the Spring, and was not a fan.

DiruVamp And Then There Were None has always been one of my favorites 2y
Mollyanna I second And Then There Were None and Murder on the Orient Express. Also Cards on the Table. 2y
Andrew65 I would agree with people on here, And Then There Were None, and Murder on the Orient Express. I also enjoyed the Mrs Marple book 2y
cizzy You must read And Then There Were None it's a quick read and it sparked my lifelong love of Christie! 2y
booklvr39 And Then There Were None 2y
Amanda.T I didn‘t enjoy my first Christie either, but decided to give her another try with Murder on the Orient Express and I ended up loving it. 2y
erzascarletbookgasm The one you‘ve read, written under the pseudonym Mary Westmacott, is not one of her mystery books. Agree with the suggestions by the others :) 2y
batsy Having just read Shirley Jackson's amazing We Have Always Lived in the Castle, I'm going to suggest Crooked House, which has Jacksony elements. Although it was before Jackson's time! Lol 2y

I was in a rush, and trying to contain my children, while we were in the library's used bookstore. I saw Sayers's name, and grabbed... only to realize this story is "based on the characters of." I'm totally still going to read it.
