    1. Agatha Christie is such a crafty devil that midway through a novel she might have you believing that YOU are the murderer Indeed, The ABC Murders uses slight of hand most deftly Again, I was thrown off the scent of the real killer and was ready to blame others I feel a bit foolish when she dangles bait in front of me, and although I guess it for what it is, I take it anyway And yet, if ever it felt good to be played the fool, it s while reading a cracking good mystery Ah, but never fear, [...]


    2. Back when I had an Audible subscription I acquired 2 literature courses and one of them is called The Secrets of Great Mystery and Suspense Fiction It is a history of the genre and its many ramifications There are quite a few books mentioned and I am planning to read most of them as they appear in the lectures Since Agatha Christie is one of the most important personalities in the history of Crime fiction among Poe, Doyle, Hammett and Chandler her works are extensively present in these lect Back [...]


    3. The A.B.C Murders, Agatha ChristieThe A.B.C Murders is a work of detective fiction by British writer Agatha Christie, featuring her characters Hercule Poirot, Arthur Hastings and Chief Inspector Japp, as they contend with a series of killings by a mysterious murderer known only as A.B.C The book was first published in the UK by the Collins Crime Club on 6 January 1936 The form of the novel is unusual, combining first person narrative and third person narrative This approach was famously The A.B.

    4. I try to get my math students to read mysteries, because the logical skills of finding a pattern and using inductive and deductive reasoning are often skillfully laid out If you ve read this book, you know why its one that I use to illustrate that point in my class Sadly, the point is underappreciated by my high school students.


    5. The book starts off with a methodical, serial killer sending Hercule Poirot a letter of a future murder Did a person just die and how do they find the victim Enter the mind of the great Agatha Christie.I loved that Agatha Christie went in a completely new direction with this plot She usually does a singular murder, not a manhunt on stopping a serial killer.The last part of the book made this a 4 star book for me It was lagging in the middle for me I didn t think the serial killer was who we w Th [...]


    6. One of the most engrossing Poirot stories It has a great beginning and as the plot progresses you stay glued trying to make a sense of it all Tantalizingly, clues are scattered loosely to off track you And then finally with a flourish Poirot reveals the murderer you are left gaping at the cleverness of author in steering such a plot I loved Poirot s quote at the end but for myself I consider your crime not an English crime at all not above board not sporting


    7. My review of the actual story is over here Murder Go Round Thirteen at Dinner, The A.B.C Murders, Funerals are FatalSO DON T ANYONE SNARK AT ME ABOUT THIS POST I LL DELETE YOUR POST IMMEDIATELY.There s yet another unnecessary, unwanted remake of this book into a 3 part miniseries being made John Malkovich will appear as Poirot, which is as ludicrous as that Brannagh dude and his mustachios appearing in the unnecessary, unwanted remake of Murder on the Orient Express that carbuncled itself o My r [...]
