Book Review
While this is often ranked as the best of Christie's murder mysteries, it was not my favorite of the three of her novels I have read so far this summer. The characters lacked the charm and depth that Christie's characters usually have, making it difficult for me to get engaged and actually care about the people involved. However, the big twist at the end was not disappointing! Even though I was expecting the twist the entire time, I couldn't even guess what the twist would be until a few pages from the end. It was a worthwhile read overall, but definitely not what I would recommend to someone as their first Agatha Christie novel.
