Death on the Nile – Agatha Christie – Falls Short

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.
