Crooked House
Crooked House | Agatha Christie
Agatha Christie is more than the most popular mystery writer of all time. In a career that spans over half a century, her name is synonymous with brilliant deception, ingenious puzzles, and the surprise denouement. By virtually inventing the modern mystery novel she has earned her title as the Queen of Crime. Curious? Then you're invited to read.

This was my first Agatha Christie, but I don‘t intend for it to be my last. I thoroughly enjoyed this entry into #whodunitthesequel ! Excellent choice, and thank you for the wonderful introduction to Dame Agatha. @Mollyanna I hope to get this selection out early to you for a change.

I really loved this one! This is actually my first read Agatha Christie...I own Murder on the Orient Express (thanks to a very sweet Litten) but haven‘t got to it yet. I definitely see more Christie in my future!

Tightly woven, not overly long (read “no excess filler”) and kept me waffling back and forth on the identity of the murderer until the last few pages. Won‘t say more here to spoil for my #whodunitthesequel cohorts who haven‘t read it. 🔽

robinb But if you haven‘t read Christie, remedy that. 😊 4.5/5⭐️ @aschermetz 6mo

I love Dame Agatha and this has been on my TBR for awhile. It sucked me in from chapter one and I finished it in a few hours because I had to know what happened! I really enjoyed this one and I‘m going to watch the movie tomorrow. Highly recommended for fans of murder mysteries and a quick read. 5⭐️

I definitely found this a fun novel to read. Christie goes straight into the mystery in this one, and our protagonist is jumping in to aid the investigation. At the same time that Christie plays with familiar character types, they don't feel grating or tiresome. She unfolds the uncomfortable family dynamic, setting it up for the hero and the reader. It was satisfying and a little uneasy. Perfect for a murder mystery.

Another stellar mystery by Dame Agatha. I was initially going to rate this lower than the other Christie titles I've read; yet a fiendishly clever twist ending & a new favorite character (Josephine) make for a solid 5 stars.

batsy Josephine! This is one of my faves by Christie. 13mo

This was my book by Agatha Christie for the Murderino Reading Challenge #ssdgmchallenge so thanks #whodunnitthesequel folks :) I know I have read this book before, but I didn‘t remember much about it, so I was happy to revisit it! It is an excellent example of Christie‘s work, even though it didn‘t feature one of the main detectives.

I‘ve been wanting to read adaptations before watching. I saw this was on Amazon Prime (I think), so I obviously had to read the book first.

This book did not disappoint. A great Agatha Christie book! I did not see the killer coming! I never do and am glad when I don‘t with Agatha‘s books!

Also I‘m a dummy! For like 3 Audiobooks I thought it was House reading. Nope! That‘s Hugh Laurie, this is Hugh Fraser!

inthegreensandblues Hugh Fraser also plays Captain Hastings in the Poirot TV series. 😊 1y
Laughterhp @inthegreensandblues Hmm I didn‘t know there was a Poirot TV series... 1y
inthegreensandblues @Laughterhp Some of the seasons were on Netflix a while back but they're gone for now. It's fun if it ever comes up on a service you use. I like David Suchet as Poirot and lots of actors who have since become big names appeared in it. 1y

Let me preface this by saying that mysteries are not my thing. I enjoyed this one fine, but as with a lot of mysteries, I get to a point halfway through where I just want to know the ending, and pushing through to get there feels irritating. That being said, the end of this one was very dark and pretty interesting, and made it all feel worth it.

I read this for the #ssdgmchallenge, for the Agatha Christie square. @shanebeth
