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.
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!
