      Sacr It took me only 2 days to literally devour this book I most certainly didn t saw that coming, I never could guessed who was the murderer, Agatha did good job

      So, as the title says, Lord Edgeware dies His wife tells everyone she s going to kill him and how But when he does get killed she has an air tight alibi, even though she was seen at the scene of the crime It s up to Poirot to find the true murderer I don t think I ve read a Poirot book before where he says, I was wrong so many times This one stumped him for quite awhile.

      This is probably my second favorite Agatha Christie novel, right behind The Murder of Roger Ackroyd It also has a special place in my heart because it was the first Agatha Christie novel that I actually read This book made me want to actually read Christie novels instead of merely watching the film and or television adaptations Generally speaking, I love Lord Edgeware Dies because I immensely enjoy all of the elements of the book First, I found the story itself very engaging Specifically, the t [...]

      I have never until recently been a mystery reader, so I kind of have a meta view of them, in a way I think what is the attraction to this kind of tightly plotted tale Maybe it gives us comfort that seemingly intractable problems like global warming can, with a little pluck and luck and Reason and Order, get figured out in time for tea If we are in the hands of guys like Poirot, we will be JUST FINE.Anyway, so in this one the problem is seemingly straightforward Lord Edgware Dies Surprise The tit [...]

      Okay, so when you read a book within the Hercule Poirot Series you know you re going to get one thing and one thing only a mysterious murder However, the title of this book gives away who the victim is Lord Edgware Now of course the person you re going to think killed him would be his wife because the women basically boasted that she was going to kill him and how she would do it But when he died she had an alibi which obviously made me suspicious as fuck.I feel like Agatha Christie loves to tort [...]

      Absolutely classic Christie this is the sort of novel that makes her reputation as Queen of Crime so richly deserved I d read it before and STILL got tangled in the red herrings and double, no triple, twists to the point that I questioned whether I had mis remembered the solution Poirot is at his best, and so is Hastings we have to remember that Hastings, without meaning to be, is not a reliable narrator He puts his own pedestrian spin on things a suspect says something crucial, and Hastings imm [...]

      Me ha gustado muchisimo Me encanta la manera de escribir de Agatha y como lleva a cabo toda la trama Es genial Me tengo que ir haciendo con la colecci n poco a poco

    12. Deborah Ideiosepius on said:

      This is one of the early Agatha Christie books, written in the 1930 s it is also an early Poirot novel in which the bumbling, very British, Captain Hastings is very much the Watson to Poirot s Holmes It also features Inspector Japp of Scotland Yard and it is noticeable how little developed that character is compared to later books.The plot is as given by the title Lord Edgeware Dies, who killed him There are a few possibilities all fortuitously known to Poirot and hence to us, the readers There [...]

    13. Andrea on said:

      A very enjoyable mystery to flex your brain to I had a correct suspicion of the true murderer, and I thought the identity wasn t veiled as cleverly as in some other Christie s novels, but I could not figure out how the crime was committed and how the evidence fit together The book ended in one of those confession notes that Christie utilized on several occasions throughout her literary career, which I don t particularly love, but Poirot s red herrings in the final reveal were brilliant and hilar [...]

      Mais uma vez Agatha Christie apresenta nos um crime intrincado e brilhantemente constru do.Jane Wilkinson disse para quem quis ouvir que queria o marido morto Disse que se meteria num t xi e o mataria ela mesma Pouco tempo depois Lord Edgware estava morto e havia testemunhas que afirmavam que Jane Wilkinson o tinha ido visitar nessa noite e que tinha sido a ltimaa pessoa a o ver com vida Mas existe um outro grupo de pessoas que afirma que nessa fat dica noite, Jane Wilkinson estava num jantar em [...]

      Lord Edgware Dies is another classic crime mystery novel by my all time favourite author, Dame Agatha Christie This is the ninth novel from the Hercule Poirot series It is a somewhat baffling case, even for the genius that is Hercule Poirot Narrated by Poirot s companion Captain Hastings, Lord Edgware Dies is a mystery that will keep readers turning the page It may be easy for readers to figure out who the murderer is, but not for them to figure out the entire story behind the murder The charact [...]

      Dame Agatha likes to use disguise and or bogus identity as a key plot device Seeing a GR review, I took out my copy for a reread as I was reminded of a Sketchbook prank inspired by this whodunit I m not fond of big cocktailers, but sometimes one has to go There I stood, bored to hell, not knowing anyone other than the hostess, and drinking too much champagne.Oh, there s someone I know, the artist Neil Smithson not real name We fell into lite chatter Soon we were interrupted by a young woman Our [...]

      I think Lord Edgware Dies has its own uniqueness.It might not be different from AC other books, but the setting was so straight forward that you can really guess firsthand who was the murderer.It just that, when you read further you will ask yourself questions like why this character did this, was these two people connected, was there any affair between them, was she there when this and that, and many other questions All this questions will make you re consider your list of suspects You might cu [...]

      Not too much to say just another great Agatha Christie novel I wavered back and forth between a few suspects and was fairly surprised by the revelation at the end.

      A typical, wonderful and very enjoyable Hercule Poirot novel BUT a little too predictive for my taste

    20. Charlotte Jones on said:

      Yes, this is my fourth Agatha Christie of the week, but unfortunately this one is my least favourite of the ones I ve read so far.Sadly I found this mystery confusing purely due to the amount of characters there were I couldn t keep up with who was who and I found that Poirot didn t feel like his usual sharp self in this.The mystery seemed to drag out, mainly because of my confusion regarding characters, but I also found that it was a little too convoluted, with so many things happening in one s [...]

      One of Agatha Christie s great mysteries full of plot twists and many suspects However,i got it this time I found the murderer before Hercule Poirot by simply guessing.It s supposed to be an unexpected ending,however i saw it coming.It was crystal clear Three and a half stars from me

      Also known as Mr Edgegrave dies.This one isn t as good as most of Christie s other books are, especially with Hercule Poirot as the detective, but it is readable It is told through the narrative of Hastings, of whom I m only a mild fan He is a typical sidekick similar to Watkins, where he gets much wrong, but he doesn t have much about him that stands out.Poirot and Hastings are brought together to an actress who fully admits she d kill her husband, and seeks their help on getting a divorce so s [...]
