The Sittaford Mystery | Agatha Christie
post image
Pickpick

My last several Christie books have only been okay and were basically saved by the narrator (often Hugh Fraser.) This one, however, was really good, with fun characters and an interesting mystery. I figured out the murderer but thought I had to be wrong because there seemed to be no way for this person to have done it. Emily — our heroine- is fantastic. The book didn‘t need Poirot or Miss Marple. #audiowalk

Agatha Christie‘s The Sittaford Mystery is my new walking book. No Poirot, no Miss Marple, but so far I‘m liking it. Hugh Fraser narrates, and he‘s always great. The top left pic is the fern garden in the botanical gardens; that‘s the clearest I‘ve ever seen that path. #audiowalk

KathyWheeler @Texreader It is. They‘re planting a new garden near this fern garden but there‘s nothing about what‘s going to be there. I can‘t wait to find out. The large herb garden they have is getting refreshed too. 😊 3d
Kimzey Oooh, an Agatha Christie I haven‘t read! Adding to the stack! ❤️ 3d
KathyWheeler @Kimzey I hadn‘t even heard of it; I just ran across it in my library‘s Hoopla. 3d

I have about a third of this book left, so it shouldn‘t be long before I finish it. It‘s funny and lighthearted. Our protagonist and her friends are a little shallow and naïve, but they‘re fun and do show the occasional depth. I can‘t figure out what that random piece of bridge is doing there; it‘s been there for years. #audiowalk

I wanted something light and funny for my walks, and I‘d seen this recommended somewhere so decided to check it out. So far, I‘m enjoying it. #audiowalk

I‘m probably not going to go out and walk (or really do much of anything) today, so here‘s yesterday‘s walk. Still 3 hours left in this book. I‘m a little frustrated with it in one aspect (spoiler in comment), but otherwise I‘m liking it. #audiowalk

KathyWheeler In a earlier book, Renee was sexually assaulted. In this book, she‘s assaulted in a manner that reminds you of rape. Connolly doesn‘t do this to Bosch or Haller. Why does he do it to Renee? 1w

It was above zero finally today after a few days of extreme cold, so we did a walk. It was still very windy, but Peri was happy to run around and sniff things (her favorite activity).

I'm about halfway through listening to this audiobook and completely fascinated. I'm glad I started it. #audiowalk

cariashley Such a good book! And great pic. 1w

I‘m so glad I decided to get my walk in early today — now it‘s raining. The Dark Hours is my new walking book, and so far, I like it. I‘m not a huge Ballard fan, but I‘m liking her better in this book. I still hate that macho “I‘ve got to run myself into the ground and work extra hours even if I don‘t get paid” attitude. How does not taking care of yourself benefit the people you‘re trying to help? It doesn‘t. #audiowalk

rockpools I love seeing your walks. 1w

Kimzey I recognize that park! I‘ve been to the art museum there. Hope the snake was friendly. Audio walking is the best! 1w

KathyWheeler @Kimzey I like that museum. They had a fabulous children‘s exhibit a few years ago that I took my granddaughter to — she loved it. The snake just snake there and did nothing. 1w
KathyWheeler @CBee Yes. 😊 This grey cat is relatively new at the botanical gardens. There were some orange and white ones, but I haven‘t seen them in awhile. 1w
KathyWheeler @rockpools Thank you! 1w

Mehso-so

I mostly liked our mc, so I‘ll probably read a second book in this series. It had issues — too much about Miriam‘s family life that was completely unrelated to the story and not enough mystery. Several Goodreads reviewers were bothered by the Spanish conversations — I wasn‘t; they were mostly with her son and unrelated to the mystery. Started The Dark Hours. We went to Bellingrath Gardens for the last day of the lights. Many were new. #audiowalk

I want to like this book, but the author is making it difficult. I realize detail establishes setting and character, but I am 75% through this book and know more about the mc‘s child‘s bathroom and eating habits, her marital issues, and her awful mother-in-law than I do about the murders. In fact, we didn‘t even get into the mc‘s involvement in the case until at least 50% into the book. It was a beautiful, if chilly, day today. #audiowalk
