Another case of an Agatha Christie novel that just blows me away so much at the end that I have to rate it 5 stars. To be more specific, she mentioned the killer’s profession. He calls on as many people as he can even his gossipy sister! The novel’s epilogue serves as his suicide note.

This is the first Agatha Christie book I read back in 7th or 8th grade. Most readers seem to have been utterly dumbfounded at t Agatha Christie offers her readers an invite, an invite to come and solve her tantalising murder mystery.

Christie should have pointed doubt somehow in the mind of the reader that the narrator should be suspected only then it would have been fair. It rests upon the most elegant of all twists, the narrator who is revealed to be the murderer. But don’t bother with the show unless you’re a completist. Despite a massive manhunt, she was not found for eleven days.


As for the mystery? But her books in the s and s were glorious, well-paced and interesting setting and subjects, and her mid-to-late s books were lots of fun, if not exactly brain-taxing.

El asesinato de Roger Ackroyd

It’s still a stylish and entertaining film, and I liked watching it, but it was NOT the equal of the book. That same evening Agatha disappeared from curistie home, leaving behind a letter for her secretary saying that she was going to Yorkshire.

I sl it right on the second try A classic, but there are some better Christies. In typical Christie fashion, there is a suspicious death followed almost immediately by murder most foul with a specific cast of characters and a few connected outsiders.

This is Orson Welles.

The Murder of Roger Ackroyd

As it stands, the whole thing felt like such an obvious manipulation of the reader. As he wanted to be on the scene when Ackroyd’s body was found, he asked a patient earlier in the day to call him some time after the murder, so as to have an excuse for returning to Fernly Park; Poirot’s telegram confirmed this.

The ending in my opinion was just lazy writing. No one is more adroit than Miss Christie in the manipulation of false clues and irrelevances and red herrings; and The Murder of Roger Ackroyd makes breathless reading from first to the unexpected last. Return to Book Page. Ted’s Evaluation — 2 of 3: Whenever I read a cozy mystery, I end up comparing it to Christie novels.

I’m not sure why I asked for this one in particular, but it’s likely that I scrolled through Goodreads to see which ones were her most popular it’s currently her fifth most read book. I have to make a confession – I like my crime hard-boiled,but I thought that, just se, I should read an Agatha Christie. When no-one was around in the study, Sheppard removed the dictaphone, and returned the chair that concealed it from view to its original place.


Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.

Her disappearance caused an outcry from the public, many of whom were admirers of her novels. I’m going to start with this highly rated one. Return to Book Page. It seems like I will always have to read Agatha Christie’s books in one sitting. However, I can still appreciate the unique way this novel was thought out.

I’ve been the victim of a terrible idiocy! Anche questa, perfettamente comprovata. Agatna so well done. In other words, she accidentally revealed who the killer was, then realized she didn’t, and instead of leaving the matter be, feeling relieved no harm was done, she told me who it really was!

El asesinato de Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie (1 star ratings)

I think too much was edited out in the beginning. Excellent depiction of the competitive sport of gossip. Just as she mocks herself and her detective in the forms of Ariadne Oliver and Sven Hjerson, from time to time, Agatha Christie’s stories quietly make fun of themselves.
