Evil Under the Sun | Agatha Christie
57 posts | 93 read | 35 to read
Arlena Stuart, the famous actress, is enjoyinglike our favorite Belgian detective Hercule Poirota summer holiday on Smugglers' Island, and will become a common enough sight, sunbathing on the hot sands. Then one azure morning her beautiful bronzed body is discovered in an isolated cove, in the shade. She is dead, strangled. And Poirot, as luckless as ever when he attempts some down-time, will learn in the course of his investigation that nearly all the guests of this exclusive resort have some connection to Arlena. But who had the capacity and the motive to kill her?

Ooh this one was tricky! Poirot proves once again that he is the master of details. When a woman is found strangled at a small resort, he must seek out the killer among his fellow vacationers.

Word for Day 23 of #OminousOctober was Evil.

Possibly my favourite book by Agatha Christie & it has had some good tv/film adaptations too. The one with Diana Rigg stands out in my mind.

When asked by Mrs. Gardner about his detecting methods, Poirot, observing she was working on a puzzle, used that as an analogy. Quite ingenious of him!
I really enjoyed this!The story was told through conversations with the police, vacationers,staff of the Jolly Roger Hotel.Although set on an idyllic island, a sense of evil permeated the air.Then the murder of an actress, thought of as a Jezebel, destroyed peoples bucolic visit.⬇️

kspenmoll Bringing evil into the open.Poirot went into his style of “ action” & asisted the police. His catalog of observations, intent listening & focus, solved the murder. Whodunit surprised me! (edited) 2y
Ruthiella One of my favorites! The murderer had everyone, including me, fooled! 2y

Instead of reading my book for irl book club yesterday, I read another Poirot mystery. The last few have been set in various countries while Poirot is vacationing. This one is off the coast of England at a resort hotel. Poirot just can‘t go anywhere without someone being murdered. Really enjoyed this one, several suspects, an interesting setting, solid mystery.

Classic Poirot story of a woman whose body is found on a beach on an island only hotel guests had access to. She was strangled but by who?

At least I managed to solve one of the minor mysteries, even if not the main one.

In Devon, Agatha Christie‘s home county, among the scantily clad sunbathers, a murdered woman is found.

It was not unusual to find the beautiful bronzed body of the sun-loving Arlena Stuart stretched out on a beach, face down. Only, on this occasion, there was no sun… she had been strangled. Poirot chases murder mysteries no matter where he travels...this was fun!

I‘ve been working through Agatha Christie‘s books the past few years, and thought I‘d fit in the next Poirot mystery during #ProgressItNovember.

This is classic Christie and David Suchet does a great job with the narration (though Hugh Fraser is my favourite Christie narrator).

This is also book 2 finished for #NovelNovember. @Andrew65

This was a book I stayed up til 2 AM to finish! A nice change from the last Christie I read. In this Poirot mystery, the alluring wife of a Captain is killed on vacation. Blame can be placed on the whole cast of characters: the husband, the step daughter, a lover, a lover‘s jealous wife, and even a zealot preacher who hates ‘scarlet women.‘ It‘s up to Poirot to put the pieces together. This is probably one of my favorites now!

This genre isn't called Cozy for nothing - it's so great to just lean back and forget about the outside world, while Poirot does his magic. Now that I've also read The Art Of War I think that he is, even though not a soldier, still acting accordingly. People keep on underestimating him. And at the end he goes BOOM - he's so great! 😄

You can never go wrong with an Agatha Christie. I've discovered some audio books from her on the Scribd app. Some are narrated by David Suchet, the actor from the Poirot series. I loved his voice. The book was also very good. I enjoyed listening to the audiobook while cleaning the house etc.

‘It is romantic, yes,‘ agreed Hercule Poirot. ‘It is peaceful. The sun shines. The sea is blue. But you forget Miss Brewster, there is evil everywhere under the sun.‘

It‘s the holiday season, and for the guests staying at the seaside hotel in Devon, they had better watch out, for #HereComesTheSun !

Another great read (and watch) featuring the Belgian detective.

Okay so I know it‘s a mystery book, but I wasn‘t expecting that twist. Agatha Christie you did it again! Also, loved how Agatha gave a different perspective on the murder victim. Arlena was hated by most everyone because she loved men but was married so that‘s not good. Agatha added another dimension by shedding light that Arlena was a victim of her own weakness because men used her more than she used them. #mystery #twist

I liked it but I didn't love it, but perhaps I was just in a weird mood. I actually like how the movie cleaned up the plot line a bit. I dislike very few of her books and I liked the denouement, but I didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would.

I LOVE the feminist undertones of this almost 100-yr-old crime novel! She basically writes a redemption story for a woman slut shamed after society pressed on her the constant need for superficial validation. Oh Agatha, your my kind of gal! 😍👵🏻📖

Well, we‘re home. This was the scene yesterday when I picked up my husband from the “berm” where some folks were self-evacuating the neighborhood by foot. This is maybe two miles from the house. My neighbors had the National Guard evacuate them yesterday afternoon. The road reopened at midnight last night. No power, and maybe not until Tuesday or Thursday, or maybe tonight. #winterstormriley #litsywx

Continuing my Agatha Christie/Poirot binge this month is another that I remembered primarily from the David Suchet adaptation. This one made me very curious about beach resort life in the 1930s-- what's with all this bathing (read: swimming) before breakfast? Must be quite bracing. 🌊 🏊‍♀️

#day12 #junetunz #laislabonita I do love me some Dame Agatha, and this one is a favorite Poirot mystery....Although the book is set on an island off the coast of Devon.... they switched the movie version to Mallorca (I'm thinking they were afraid that with British summers, it could become more like 'Evil under the Rain!' 😂)....The 1982 movie is a joy, with fabulous diva performances from Jane Birkin, Maggie Smith & Diana Rigg 😍😍😍
