This is one of the cleverest mysteries I have ever read The plot is dazzling and its execution is flawless I was drawn into the mystery so easily and, despite following all of Hercule Poirot s little ideas as he calls them , despite all the subtle clues to decipher, this story and its ending were a complete surprise.
No spoilers ahead although there are a couple of very obscure clues In this novel, Hercule Poirot has retired to a small village, and when a murder is committed coupled with the possible blackmail of another person close to the murder victim, one of the family requests Hercule Poirot s help in discovering the truth behind the mystery Hastings Poirot s chronicler and helper in past mysteries is in Argentina, so Poirot asks the local doctor if he would be willing to assist h In The Village Of King S Abbot, A Widow S Sudden Suicide Sparks Rumors That She Murdered Her First Husband, Was Being Blackmailed, And Was Carrying On A Secret Affair With The Wealthy Roger Ackroyd The Following Evening, Ackroyd Is Murdered In His Locked Study But Not Before Receiving A Letter Identifying The Widow S Blackmailer King S Abbot Is Crawling With Suspects, Including A Nervous Butler, Ackroyd S Wayward Stepson, And His Sister In Law, Mrs Cecil Ackroyd, Who Has Taken Up Residence In The Victim S Home It S Now Up To The Famous Detective Hercule Poirot, Who Has Retired To King S Abbot To Garden, To Solve The Case Of Who Killed Roger Ackroyd A Task In Which He Is Aided By The Village Doctor And Narrator, James Sheppard, And By Sheppard S Ingenious Sister, Caroline The Murder of Roger Ackroyd Is The Book That Made Agatha Christie A Household Name And Launched Her Career As A Perennial Bestseller originally Published In , It Is A Landmark In The Mystery Genre It Was In The Vanguard Of A New Class Of Popular Detective Fiction That Ushered In The Modern Era Of Mystery Novels The Murder or Roger Ackroyd is one of the most well known mysteries written by Agatha Christie and the only one to be featured in the 1001 books To read Before You Die list After having read it I understand why it is so well praised As with all her mysteries, it leaves you guessing until the end who the killers is and in this particular case, the way the murderer was unraveled was particularly interesting Sadly for me, I already knew who the killer was as I accidently found out from an audio course on Crime and mystery novels Because of that, a large part of the book s appeal was lost for me However, I can still appreciate the unique way this novel was thought out I don t want to say any so I do not spoil anything for the ones that still haven t read it If you enjoy Agatha Christie s novels this one is a must.
Agatha Christie offers her readers an invite, an invite to come and solve her tantalising murder mystery.
It was a real tricky one, though I did have my suspicions very early on There was a certain emphasis on a tiny bit of information that we didn t really need to know that gave the game away It added little to the story and, for me, only had the purpose of giving her killer an excuse not to be the killer So it was obviously that person Most readers seem to have been utterly dumbfounded at the reveal but I spotted it a mile of, perhaps only because I have seen the same device used in a book by another author I m not going to mention the name of the book because it will give it all away Nevertheless, when it was finally confirmed it still brought me a great deal of delight The actual murder event was ever so discreet, tucked in between two paragraphs in plain sight that will Wow just Wow Agatha Christie had me from the first page, hook line sinker and she never lost my attention until the very end No wonder this is considered to be one of her very best.
I do not want to say too much about this book, I mean the title pretty much tells you what it is about and to go too much further into any details runs the risk of spoilers If there are others out there, like me, who are late in the game of reading this I do not want to spoil that experience for them in any way.
This is only the second Agatha Christie book I have read and my first Hercule Poirot Know this, you will not be bored I spent my time while reading trying to figure out who did the dastardly deed Not It wasn t until right near the end that I tho My 2018 Review ooh 4.
5 starsSo as part of my Hercule Poirot challenge, courtesy of Jessica in Reading the Detectives , I decided to read this book for the 2nd time in 13 months why when I have so many books I want to read I don t know, but I did Was I disappointed, oh no, if anything I m seriously thinking of upping it to 5 stars Despite a gap of only 13 months , I got so much from this re read In fact I ve obviously read so much in that intervening time, that it took me over 3 4 of the book to guess who had done it.
I m not going into any spoiler details but it is superbly written with so many red herrings and false clues So so well done Maybe a third time, but give me a few years.
My 2017 Review 4 starsWhere to start, well I saw a few other people wanted to read this as a Buddy read, so whilst on a Miss Marple kick challenge I thought why not I cannot remember ever having read th I saw a few reviews, before I read this book, saying it was the best Agatha Christie they had read and I think I agree I raced through it in a few hours though still making sure I absorbed every fact and every clue.
Not that it did me any good I had plenty of ideas as to who the murderer might be but in the end none of them were correct Poirot kept his secrets right to the end and only then did things become clear It was actually an amazing conclusion to a really excellent story.
Thoroughly enjoyable and yes, one of the best Christie novels I have read.
