Hallowe'en Party
Hallowe'en Party | Agatha Christie
Mystery writer Ariadne Oliver has been invited to a Hallowe'en party at Woodleigh Common. One of the other guests is an adolescent girl known for telling tall tales of murder and intrigue -- and for being generally unpleasant. But when the girl, Joyce, is found drowned in an apple-bobbing tub, Mrs Oliver wonders after the fictional nature of the girl's claim that she had once witnessed a murder. Which of the party guests wanted to keep her quiet is a question for Ariadne's friend Hercule Poirot. But unmasking a killer this Hallowe'en is not going to be easy -- for there isn't a soul in Woodleigh who believes the late little storyteller was actually murdered.

Halloween Party by Agatha Christie charts a double murder in the best tradition of Samhain.

This is the first Agatha Christie I have ever read. Something tells me this probably isn't the best one to start with, but I ended up finding it quite enjoyable. Since I normally prefer dark, gritty crime thrillers I was surprised at how quickly I read this one. The mystery and characters were fun, everything ends up being tied up nice and neat, and it made me eager to read more Christie.

Halloween Party (Poirot) | Agatha Christie

I‘ve been on a pretty major Agatha Christie kick this year, and the weirdest part has been the sheer amount of time her career spans.

Her first book was punished in 1920, shortly after the end of WWI. This books was published in 1969 and references “Hemp” and LSD in the first chapter. The changes in culture over that period for a pop culture writer are staggering.

#mystery #seasonal #halloween #audio #hoopla #librarybook

Gnora All this made more complicated by the fact I always associate her with the 1920s, and therefore am so surprised when she references things that come much later. 1mo

Not bad a storyline, yet it didn‘t full itself up for me. A child tells a story she saw a murder then, she herself, is murder because of it? It didn‘t make sense to me, especially the new connections being made. Wish that, title has Halloween, that it would‘ve been seen as such.

⭐️⭐️⭐️ This wasn‘t the best Agatha Christie I‘ve read but I did like the commentary on the cruelty of kids. Even though it didn‘t really have much to do with kids in the end lol the conclusion was a bit convoluted but it was a quick listen.

This was an audio- BBC radio version - mystery was only okay and the format was not good for me - a lot of characters and it was hard to follow without a visual or at least a “Mrs. M stated“ - even if I read the book I'm not sure it would get more than a so-so - once again story was only okay.

Yesterday I did a little reading but spent most of my day #audioknitting and then knitting while watching a Halloween marathon. I made it to 5. It‘s hard to find 6 streaming for free (probably because it was so bad 👻), so I moved on to Rob Zombie‘s versions (again, soooo bad). I‘m about to open my #basicwitchswap 📦.

I always enjoy Poirot‘s murder mystery. Though in this book few characters were annoying, & felt little bit dragging. It was just an OK one time read. I listen to the audio & the narration is too good. 3✨/5

I borrowed this to see if would be a good intro to Christie for the 11yo.

It is not. Late Poirot, and nearly every character is disparaging about the idea of people with mental health issues living in the community.

If any Christie fans follow me, I‘d love some suggestions on books to get a tween started on the queen.

StaceGhost I started with the Orient Express and loved it! I never guessed the ending, a big problem with mysteries for me. 13mo
ShyBookOwl Yikes.. I think my first Christie was And Then There Were None when I was 12. I know I read a bunch others directly following it, but I haven't revisited them since so I have no sense of appropriateness nor how they hold up today. 13mo
AvidReader25 I second And Then There We‘re None. I read it around that age and loved it. 13mo

Magslhalliday @StaceGhost I‘m going to suggest it, the biggest problem being Murder Most Unladylike riffs on it so she can work out the end! 13mo

#LittensDressedInBlood #Day2 #Fall This Dame Agatha always reminds me of Autumn, even though here in the Southern Hemisphere Halloween is in Spring, I always associate it with cool weather & falling leaves. Reading this book I can almost feel a chilly breeze rustling golden leaves across the ground, smell the woodsmoke & see the mist gathering once night falls. Sigh.

As it seems to be my usual with her books lately, I was half right. I liked the book at first, then it started to lose my interest a bit, but then it picked right back up again. I am a Poirot fan.

Halloween Party | Agatha Christie
Pickpick

"To keep something wild is far more difficult than to preserve it."
Although, it sounds very american and modern from its title, it's really the most wonderous mix of Shakespeare and Greek myths. Although, I haven't read "A midsummer night's dream" yet, I suppose the gist is very well captured here. It has, in some part, the dream-like quality. It possesses raving madness and mad beauty. One of the things that distinguishes Christie from other ?

truthinfiction mystery writers, apart from her shrewd knowledge of human nature and the absolutely maddening and mind-bending twists, is her skillful use of literary references and rhymes. "Ding dong dell, pussy's in the well." I also love Mrs. Ariadne Oliver as his side-kick of sorts. She seems to be an extension of Dame Christie herself. 2y
