Death in the Clouds
Death in the Clouds | Agatha Christie
52 posts | 73 read | 25 to read
From seat No. 9, Hercule Poirot is almost ideally placed to observe his fellow air travelers on this short flight from Paris to London. Over to his right sits a pretty young woman, clearly infatuated with the man opposite. Ahead, in seat No. 13, is the Countess of Horbury, horribly addicted to cocaine and not doing too good a job of concealing it. Across the gangway in seat No. 8, a writer of detective fiction is being troubled by an aggressive wasp. Yes, Poirot is almost ideally placed to take it all inexcept that the passenger in the seat directly behind him has slumped over in the course of the flight . . . dead. Murdered. By someone in Poirot's immediate proximity. And Poirot himself must number among the suspects.

This was my last #agathachristieclub read before I'll take a break for the #agathachristieclubR2 revamp, and it was a good one! This is one of the few that I remembered the solution, but that didn't spoil my enjoyment. @Bambolina_81

rwmg @rabbitprincess A more acceptable cover?

Finished another Agatha Christie classic. It had me reading the last ten chapters in a day. As usual never saw the ending coming. The ending definitely had my heart skipping a couple of beats. I couldn‘t wait to see how it ended. I can‘t wait to see the next mystery Hercule Poirot uncovers next.⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I've loved seeing all the #cozyinthesun tags today! My goal is to always have at least one cozy going at all times, whether it's in print or audio since I do have some non-cozy books I have to get to this month.

I'll be basing my tally of finished cozies on review posts, so be sure to use them to be entered for our prize! And post your cozy progress using the #cozyinthesun hashtag just because it's fun. :)

@Librarybelle

Librarybelle I love seeing the hashtags too! 5mo

I‘ve read some pretty great Christie books lately, but this one disappointed me when I read it during the #24in48 readathon. It has all the makings of a great mystery: a poisoned dart, set on an airplane, the murder of a money lender who blackmails clients, all right under Poirot‘s nose. Despite all that, I didn‘t care enough to be interested in who did it. Also, there‘s casual racism in all Christie‘s novels, but this one was especially gross.

While I love Poirot in general, this wasn‘t my favorite book. Too many totally irrelevant characters that I didn‘t see the point of. I gave it a pick mainly because it‘s Poirot and I didn‘t guess the murderer.

A great story with some awesome cover art. Written in 1935, there are the sadly to be expected incidents or times when characters express prejudice, racism, and sexism. That may be par for the course from books written in certain eras, but still gross to encounter.

Other than what I mentioned above, I liked this story. Poirot is an arrogant, bizarre little old man, but I do like to have a visit with him every now and then.

Leniverse I remember they had this cover in a Doctor Who episode about Agatha Christie‘s missing week. I had to google it to check they hadn‘t made it up. 😂 That cover is just mad! 1y
Libby1 @Leniverse - isn‘t it great? I really liked that Doctor Who episode, although I hadn‘t read much Christie at that time. I‘ve always wanted to read this one, and couldn‘t believe my luck when I found this for 50 pence in a charity shop! 1y
Leniverse That's an amazing find! 1y
Libby1 @Leniverse - I did a little jig in the shop. 😊 1y

...bit too sensational to be true. I mean, blowpipes and poisoned arrows on an aeroplane - well, it insults one's intelligence.

That my friend, is a very profound remark, said Poirot.

A wonderful old school Agatha Christie. Points deducted for casual racism as usual, unfortunately (you‘d think there‘d be one book where it didn‘t come up??) but plot-wise exactly what I wanted. An ingenious but not TOO ridiculous Poirot plot where it isn‘t obvious but there are enough clues that you feel like you could have got it if you‘d taken notes or something. In my defense, I had it narrowed down to 2 people and it was one of them...

ElenaBaer I always feel like that!!! I‘ve been reading a lot of her books this summer and I end going oh yeah now I see it. Duh. 1y

Embarking on my last week in my current job and almost all of my books have been moved out already so just me and my kindle for now! I wanted something light as it‘s a hugely busy week for me - four graduation ceremonies, my partner back from Canada and staying with me, lots of friends to say goodbye to before I move. The only person I was gonna pick to get me through this week was Agatha Christie! I love Poirot and I‘ve never read this one

BarbaraBB Good luck with ending things and moving on to the next 🍀 1y

Done and done. I finished my reread of Death in the Clouds in one sitting and despite having read it before, I still guessed the killer wrong?! 🤷🏼‍♀️😹 I should probably focus on Hardy now but honestly, I haven‘t touched it in a few days. I‘m really enjoying it so I‘m not sure what my problem is. Once the little one is at nursery and I‘ll try and get to it. #bookaddict #booklover #bookblog #bookish #bookworm #bookstamums #agathachristie

I‘m craving my queen - Agatha Christie, so I‘m rereading a favourite by her. Death in the Clouds is such a good story and it‘s always been one of my favourite AC books (alongside Death on the Nile), though I‘m yet to read an AC I didn‘t love. Anyway, onward. #agathachristie #dameagathachristie #bookaddict #booklover #bookworm

#TuneIntoNovember #day1 #BigJetPlane Dame Agatha went one better than a locked room mystery with this novel. Poirot is high in the air, on a flight from Paris to London when a passenger is found dead in their seat, the apparent victim of a wasp sting. But when a poison dart is found on the body, and the woman turns out to be a high profile money lender with clients on the plane,things get complicated. Not one of her best & a bit controversial too.

Enjoyable mystery. Again, I suspected the murderer early on, but couldn't figure out how they could possibly have done it. Agatha Christie always tricks me.

I took a little break from more serious reading and read an Agatha Christie for the first time in years. This one in particular I had only read once, in high school. I found it a delightful look at the past - the plane with a whole 21 passengers, the politically incorrect references to class and "native tribes", the fashions and beauty standards. Also had a chuckle at the Dame getting the action of her chosen snake venom completely wrong ?

Sneaking in a quick pic before I actually settle down for dinner with the kids. Tonight it's stirfried noodles with beef and a mix of vegetables (spinach, chard and kale) and some eggs on top for extra colour and protein. And it's been so long since I last read an Agatha Christie! I just started reading this today and am about 70% done already!

LeahBergen I think I need to read another Christie soon. It's been years and years! 3y
