Book Review: The Murder Of Roger Ackroyd // Agatha Christie

Having never read an Agatha Christie novel or any detective fiction before, I was pleasantly surprised at how crafted this novel proved to be. Albeit, I was rather sceptical; my idea of Agatha Christie was naive and tainted by an impression that only an older audience would enjoy her writing. I couldn’t have been more […]Read More

Book Review: The Monogram Murders // Sophie Hannah

Having progressed through a vast number of novels and works by Agatha Christie, I think I can safely say that I know what I like in regards to her literature and it was for this reason that I was, somewhat, apprehensive in commencing to read The Monogram Murders by already established author, Sophie Hannah.

Book By My Bedside: The Secret Adversary // Agatha Christie

Title: The Secret Adversary Author: Agatha Christie What I Think So Far:  As the first detective novel I have ever read, I’m baffled as to why I didn’t pick up one sooner.

Book By My Bedside: The A B C Murders //

Title: The A B C Murders Author: Agatha Christie What I think So Far: At about halfway in, I’m greatly enjoying every part of this novel – the writing style, the characters, the plot itself, and of course the murders.

Book Review: Hallowe’en Party // Agatha Christie
