This was very much what I expected based on the blurbs & reviews. It was entertaining, but overly long and not twisty enough, IMHO. Still, would rate it above average (maybe 3+/5)

Magpie Murders | Anthony Horowitz
Mehso-so

I decided to try this “mystery within a mystery” while on summer vacation. The book was 40 pages too long, and the female lead was not believable as female. I kept thinking she was male. Otherwise the plot moves along and I really had no idea whodunnit. Author Horowitz knows his genre and someone with more experience reading British murder mysteries would find Easter eggs all over the place. I felt like I was missing the joke.

I knew I would like this when I picked it! This is a mystery inside a mystery - Susan is an editor and is reading over the latest book in author Alan Conway‘s Atticus Pünd mystery series, but she finds the last chapter missing from her review copy. As she investigates, she finds that there is more than just a missing chapter to discover. It reads very much like classic detective fiction and was an easy read. The action flows nicely. 4.5⭐️ #2019

Blaire Yes! I thought it was so well-done...especially for fans of classic mysteries. I also loved 4mo

I‘m reading Horowitz‘s Magpie Murders and something in the book struck me and I‘m curious as to what others think. When writing historical fiction, should an author try to be accurate when it comes to the times they are portraying, or should they use the more humane and politically correct terminology even though it doesn‘t reflect accurately upon the times? I‘ve been enjoying this book but a particular phrase came to my attention ⬇️

rretzler ⬆️ which I was fairly certain was not accurate to the times. The historical part of the book takes place in 1955 and one of the characters has a brother with Down‘s Syndrome. I was born in the early 60‘s and recall the unfortunate term mongoloid to refer to people affected with this syndrome. It wasn‘t until the 70‘s that I recall hearing the term Down‘s syndrome. So I looked it up, trying to figure out if where I lived was particularly ⬇️ 4mo
RachelS89 Interesting. I'm reading Once Upon a River by Diane Setterfield right now. It's set in the late 1800's. There is a character with down syndrome, and another character (a nurse) does use the word "mongol" in reference to him. The term down syndrome isn't used at all. 4mo
rretzler ⬆️ backward or if this was an unfortunate part of those times. Apparently, the term Down‘s Syndrome wasn‘t used until the mid-60‘s so it wouldn‘t have been used in the book taking place in the 50‘s. I‘m not trying to make light of this and I do not like the term mongoloid, but my question is whether the author should be historically accurate despite the unfortunate nature of the ⬇️ 4mo
See All 25 Comments
rretzler ⬆️ terminology or whether he was right in using the nicer and more politically correct term? Thoughts? 4mo
rretzler @RachelS89 It‘s more historically accurate even though it‘s an unfortunate term. I definitely recall my mother speaking of the mongoloid child of some friends when I was small. I don‘t think my community used the correct terminology until the 70‘s 4mo
TrishB It‘s a tough one isn‘t it because some people write a review and say they were put off the book by sexism/racism etc - but it‘s set 100 years ago and accurately portrays what it would have been like. Can‘t win 🤷‍♀️ 4mo
wanderinglynn While I personally have no issues with using the historically accurate terms, there has been backlash against authors that do. Even backlash against books written in those time periods. So I can‘t blame the author for using the modern, correct term. 4mo
RachelS89 That makes sense. On the one hand, I understand if authors want to avoid using older terms that they don't feel comfortable with, but using newer terminology in historical fiction makes a book seem inaccurate. 4mo
rretzler @TrishB I always have to shake my head at reviews of a book written many years ago where the reviewer doesn‘t like it because of the sexism/racism, etc. Life was the way it was and we should be glad that things are changing, move on, and not fault the author for writing about their times. Sigh... I find it terrible that a children‘s award that had previously been named for Laura I Wilder was renamed because of her portrayal of American Indians 4mo
rretzler @wanderinglynn It‘s unfortunate isn‘t it? 4mo
wanderinglynn Agree. I mean people want to take correction tape to classics like Gone With the Wind and Tom Sawyer. For me, I think it‘s important to understand how life was for all groups during whatever timeframe the book is set in. First, the past is the past. Yes, bad things, even terrible things happened. But you can‘t whitewash it & pretend it was all pretty. Second, those who don‘t learn from the past are doomed to repeat it. That‘s my feelings about it. 4mo
TrishB Agree. We have to learn and move on and be grateful that we can. 4mo
RaimeyGallant Very interesting. 4mo
rretzler @wanderinglynn I had actually been thinking along those lines. If we don‘t take the opportunity to learn about the past, we have no hope of changing the future. 4mo
Aimeesue Depends on the context and the point of using/not using terms that would have been used in that era. TBH, "mongoloid" would've confused a lot of American readers. Not a term we used much, as far as I can tell, and I work for people with developmental disabilities. "Mentally retarded" would've been in common use at that time here. Unless there's a point being made about character through vocabulary they use, I don't think it's necessary to hew ? 4mo
Aimeesue So closely to the language of the times that you use terms that are offensive today. But I'm not hugely bothered by the occasional use of historically accurate terms, either, unless they're egregious. I read this book and didn't even notice it, to tell you the truth. Err on the side of kindness, unless there's a point to it, I guess. 4mo
rretzler @Aimeesue I‘m from small town Ohio and that‘s the term that was used in the 60s as far as I know all over Ohio as it‘s one that I was very familiar with. I think that‘s why the terminology struck me as I didn‘t hear Down‘s until the 70s. So I think people who are in their 50s and up in the US are probably familiar with the term. More of an generational unfamiliarity than a locational one, I think. And yes, sadly the term retarded was used as well 4mo
Aimeesue @rretzler Possibly generational. I‘m in my 50‘s though and don‘t recall the term being used. Probably situational though. I didn‘t hang out in OB wards or have a lot of opportunities to overhear any discussion regarding such children. I don‘t think my family would have used it. Sounds more clinical than other terms like slow, Special or the like. 4mo
SW-T I think it‘s a combination of things. Political correctness, general familiarity, and sometimes regional usage. Certain terms are familiar in a certain region, others to a certain age group. In this case, I think more people would understand Downs Syndrome than mongoloid. Not as accurate but might be more recognizable. 4mo
rretzler @Aimeesue @SW-T My initial point was that the official terminology was actually mongol or mongoloid from the time Dr Down discovered the condition in the 1860s until the term Down‘s Syndrome was actually first used in 1965. Yes, if you were born after that time, or didn‘t know anyone who had the condition in those days then I guess you might not be aware of the correct terminology used at that time. 4mo
Freespirit Love this literary debate. The term mongoloid was used here in Australia also. I don‘t mind the writing keeping in context with the period they are writing about . 4mo
rretzler @Freespirit I kind of look on the historical accuracy as a learning opportunity as well. Although this was a mystery, as I told my husband, the author could have used the historical terminology and footnoted the term used today in order to teach us something about its history. Of course, that wasn‘t really the function of the book so I understand why he wouldn‘t have done that; I just feel it may have been a missed opportunity. 4mo
Reggie I say use the terminology of the day. Marlon James writes this great book called The Book of Night Women and the N word is almost overused. He himself is black and remembering how angry I got when slave owners were using the word, I don‘t think it would have had the same effect as if he had used the word Africans the whole time. It is ugly but we also need to know and realize how horrible that time was. 4mo
rretzler @Reggie I agree. Although this wasn‘t a book specifically about Down‘s - in which case most certainly the author should have used the historical terminology - I would still prefer the historical accuracy with perhaps a footnotes explanation even when this was only a minor plot point. I can understand why an author might be uncomfortable using historical terminology but I agree that we need to know so that we understand and perhaps bring change. 4mo

I forgot to review this when I finished it because I was sick. It was my book club pick this month, but I didn‘t make it which is a shame because I would‘ve enjoyed discussing it. It had a very twisty plot, and with two mysteries going in parallel, plenty of intrigue! I quite enjoyed it! @MrBook

MrBook @vivastory No. It‘s a rarity for me. I‘ve read Stephen King‘s “It” three times—first when I was ~14; second when it was re-released in expanded form; third when it came up as a book club selection and I listened to the audio. I‘ve read “The Count of Monte Christo” 3x since it‘s one of my all-times favorites. This one is my second read because the first time I read the ARC and now need to refresh myself for an upcoming book club meeting. 😊 (edited) 5mo

Whodunnit murder mysteries aren‘t usually my thing. They get tied up in too neat of a bow at the end (the point of it, I know) but I did enjoy this mystery within a mystery. Clever! I wasn‘t thrilled with the reasoning behind the Alan Conway‘s murder but otherwise, it was a lovely listen on audio.

Kaye Glad to hear this. I also have this on audio. 7mo
Cortg @kaye I hope you enjoy it! The book in the story is similar to Agatha Christie but then there is a real life murder as well so it‘s like two mysteries in one. (edited) 7mo

3.5 stars ⭐️ Magpie Murders is really two books in one: a contemporary mystery and a whodunnit mystery set in the mid-1950s. The whodunnit mystery felt like a love letter to the genre and was very well done, but the contemporary mystery felt strained and convoluted. The concept and structure of this book is clever, but unfortunately, the execution was a bit long-winded for my taste. #LitsyAtoZ #LetterM

hlgreenfield I think I gave this one 4/5, but I do agree that the execution was somewhat lacking! The premise promised better than the actual result, but the old school mystery was such a homage to so many of my favourite books that I ended up loving it! 7mo
candority @hlgreenfield I don‘t read many whodunnits, but that part of the book sparked my interest in the genre! I can see why you enjoyed it! 7mo

While reading this book, I came to a passage where the grandson of Agatha Christie, Matthew Prichard, is a character. It mentions something in passing about him having been given the rights to her play The Mousetrap at 9 years old. Being the nosy skeptic that I am, I looked it up. I learned a good deal about them both in this story from 2012: https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-wales-20768657 Sharing for fans of either Christie or this book.
