After reading the best books by Agatha Christie – And Then There Were None, The Murder of Roger Ackroyd and The A.B.C. Murders, I expected a spine-chilling plot, twists and unexpected climax in ‘Death on the Nile’. But I was disappointed.
This is not a spoiler alert.
Death on the Nile lacks the aura of Christie’s novels. The plot is predictable and the characters are uninteresting. Two or three secondary female characters appear more or less similar to each other. Hercule Poirot is confused during the quest of the murderer.
Not the best book of Christie, yet a readable one.
I’m humbly sorry for not posting any articles in the last month. During this hibernation, I was spending my time reading other blogs and books, and interacting with people. It was a good time though but I did MISS MY WRITING.
I badly missed my writing. I always love writing. In the last month, I knew how much I missed writing.
I took one month of reading and learning curve that I desperately needed for my writing. I’m happy that I’m back.
So, I’m back again to weave magic with my writings…
When you hold the masterpiece of Agatha Christie‘s And Then There Were None, you feel the thrill and suspense at its peak. ‘And Then There Were None‘ is unarguably the world’s best-selling mystery novel with 100 million sales recorded so far.
Christie has pulled this off in style, where the identity of the murderer is the toughest foil to crack. Clean narration and writing brings the story come alive in the most unexpected way.
If you haven’t yet read ‘And Then There Were None‘, grab the book from the stores immediately.
Agatha Christie rolls the dice in her own trademark style of suspense and twists. A compelling read!
‘Everyone concerned in them has something to hide’, said Hercule Poirot.
Agatha Christie has pulled out a clean thriller in ‘The Murder of Roger Ackroyd‘, which gets better and better as the story goes forward. The author earns a special praise for writing a complex story that has numerous characters and subplots.
The beauty of the story is that every character is doubted as the murderer. This is very well complimented by Hercule Poirot with his stand that ‘Everyone concerned in them has something to hide’.
The book falls under the league of classic detective mystery fiction and has great narration by Christie. Two characters steal the show in their own different styles – Hercule Poirot and Dr. Sheppard. Poirot sticks to his little old grey cells and Sheppard plays the perfect foil for the mystery. Everyone has something to hide, true enough!
The story’s end haunted me for hours. It is indeed one of Christie’s masterpiece.
“A man can be destroyed but not defeated. ”― Ernest Hemingway, The Old Man and the Sea.
A man can be easily destroyed but cannot be defeated completely. It calls for the high spirits of a man.
There would be a lot of things that go deep inside a man’s heart. It hurts him, pulls him down, tests his creditability, challenges him and even makes him appear like a fool. But a man with a strong will power and patience will not be defeated. It is not about the masculinity or testosterone levels. It is all about how a man holds his composure during the hardships and difficult times.
The struggle is so worth fighting for.
Again, a man can be destroyed but he cannot be defeated completely.
