Closed Casket: The New Hercule Poirot Mystery | Agatha Christie, Sophie Hannah
Pickpick

Enjoyable and a quick read, although maybe not up to the standard of the late great Agatha Christie. Full review here: https://thecuriousmagpie2018.wordpress.com/2019/11/12/review-the-closed-casket-b...

Oh my gosh I forgot to announce this month's #agathachristieclubR2 book, and it's already the middle of the month! I'm sorry, everyone!

I hope you'll be able to join us!

TheAromaofBooks Thank you for the reminder!! I was sad to not join in last month, as I really love The Secret Adversary, but things got super crazy at the end of October for me. Looking forward to this one!! 19h

Secret Adversary | Agatha Christie

If you enjoy adventure stories in the style of National Treasure (nonstop action that always seems to work out in favor of the protagonists and plot twists that you saw coming a mile away but still may you say “ohhhh snap!”) then you‘ll like this book.

ferskner Haha that's a great comparison! 1d

A much-needed reread to get me out of a reading slump. Possibly my second-favourite Poirot (The Mysterious Affair at Styles takes top prize).
Favourite line:
Hastings: I never notice what people are wearing.
Poirot: Maybe you should join a nudist colony.
😆😂😳

LauraBrook 😂😂 I don‘t remember that quip! I do love Poirot. 2d
sarahnicoloff 😂👌 2d
rabbitprincess @LauraBrook He was especially sassy in this one for some reason! @sarahnicoloff I could just see Hugh Fraser making a dismayed face at that comment 😆 2d

After finishing the Readathon, I‘m thinking a book for #NFNov is the way to go next. This is just a small #stack of some of my #NFTBR I‘ve also got a few waiting at the library for pickup. I‘m thinking of going with A Night To Remember but the Ann Rule is calling me too. This is my problem as a reader, too many choices can put me in a rut. Do any of you have the same issue? Which one are you looking forward to reading or have read and loved?

Librariana That is an excellent selection you've got there! I own and am interested in reading 2d
Librariana But gosh, I'd be very intrigued to read Ann Rule's account of her friendship/acquaintance to Ted Bundy OR the one about Jonestown! 2d
ImperfectCJ It's been a long time, but I remember loving A Night to Remember (and feeling irritated that James Cameron didn't credit it because how could he have written the screenplay for Titanic without using that book? Or so I reasoned.). 2d

FantasyChick I really enjoyed Jonestown, though it could be a bit dry and boring at times but The Stranger Beside Me was fantastically done! You really can't beat Ann Rule when it comes to true crime 2d
ljuliel I agree completely about it being harder to read when you have too many choices . I spend more time trying yo figure out what to read than I do reading. I‘ve read the Bundy book and the Titanic ones. They were all good. I read a Jo Estonia book back after it happened but I don‘t remember the name of it. I know it wasn‘t this one since urs much newer. 2d
vivastory I second @Librariana comments. Guin's book on Bonnie and Clyde is one of my favorite nf of the year. 2d
Lizpixie @Librariana thanks for your input! I keep putting off the Ann Rule coz I bought it online & it‘s one of those pocket editions with cheap paper & horrible printing🙄 @ImperfectCJ I just finished A Night To Remember & loved it, though I felt like screaming at it in certain parts, especially when steerage passengers were stopped from getting to boats @FantasyChick that‘s what I‘ve been worried about with Jonestown, the dry bits🥱 3m
Lizpixie @ljuliel at least it‘s not just me! I think the Jonestown book came out last year, so probably not the one you read. I remember when it happened too, though I was only 7 at the time our family used to watch the 6pm news every night while eating dinner coz of my dad. It made an impression. @vivastory I‘ll have to look that one up! Thank you all for your input♥️ now

The are crimes that can be punished by the law but what about the crimes in which the guilty walks free because of the circumstances? That's what the whole book is about. Ten complete strangers gather on an island responding to the summons of an unknown individual only to find themselves being killed off in accordance to a nursery rhyme. A brilliantly riveting book with a twist so wild and abrupt that you'll never see it coming. My review 5/5.

ljuliel Really good book ! 3d
Judgemental_Biliophile @ljuliel I was absolutely blown away by this book 2d
ljuliel I‘ve read only a handful of Christie‘s books, but I can‘t imagine any of them being better than this one. I never ever figure out mystery books til they tell at the end who the Bad Guy is. I would‘ve never gotten this one either. 2d
Judgemental_Biliophile @ljuliel I know right. Even after the killer was revealed it took me sometime to believe it. It was so wild till the very end 2d
ljuliel Yes, she definitely made this book a bit like following a maze with lots of dead ends. I kept thinking as the number of people were whittled down, it‘d get easier to guess. Nope, didn‘t help me a bit 😊 2d

I love a good mystery! I'm not sure how I've never read any Agatha Christie before!? #ReadingThroughTheYears192021 #1923

kspenmoll I hope you enjoy the Queen of the English mystery! 3d
DrexEdit My mom recently cleared out some attic space and she said she found a whole box of Agatha Christie's. I'm like "how many?" "what condition?" lol! I'm not good at subtle! ? 3d
Scochrane26 I didn‘t read any of hers until about 3 yrs ago. Now, I‘ve still only read a small amount but working on them. 3d
CaroPi I have only read 3 of her books but planning to read as much as I can. My favorite so far is (edited) 3d
