OKAY so I just finished "the murder of roger ackroyd" by agatha christie and it was AMAZINGGG. but before I get into all that, the lovely @gin_reads tagged me in the #spellmynameinbooks 💓 so here it is: (B)ook thief
(A)nd then there were none
so, without further ado, let's talk about agatha christie. btw, this post is spoiler-free😉
I started reading ackroyd by christie right after I had finished orient express, and I was intrigued. the environment seemed more open and to me I felt like it would be a harder case to crack. it didn't seem as enthralling as orient express or "and then there were none," but it was still very interesting - I just adore christie's writing style, it never fails to draw me in.
the book began to get more and more captivating as I continued reading, trying to figure out who the murderer was. that's one thing I love about mysteries - they're almost interactive in the way that you as the reader try and figure it out along the way as well.
I loved the characters - poirot, as ever, was funny, overly intelligent and logical, and wonderful. the miss sheppard was amusing and i was intrigued by the secrets each household member was hiding. in this book, though, I also came to adore the character of doctor sheppard. his sarcasm, humor, and constant yet quiet presence in the book made me like him very much.
near the end of the book I was so captivated that I couldn't put it down. I didn't want to go to bed and (as evidenced by my second photo) I wished books were waterproof so I could read in the shower.
I was reading faster and faster as poirot explained how exactly the murder was done, & was amazed at the detail, thought, and creativity. at the end of the chapter, christie shocked me again with who it was. I was astounded (@authorkdwinter can attest). anyway, I would definitely recommend this book if you want a good read.
happy wednesday, xoxo inkbound💓
