A Murder Is Announced Read ✓ 2 Agatha Christie Å 2 Review Review A Murder Is Announced Ans la bonne humeurA dix huit heures trente la lumière s'éteint l'assassin paraît des coups de feu éclatent Mais c'est l'étranger entré Dieu sait comment dans la maison u'on retrouve son pistolet à la main effondré sur le paruet Mort. Taken from my blog post grew up on Christie At the time I was limited to whatever my local library branch physically had on the shelves so it took awhile to work my way through her bibliography and even now I m not sure I ve read all of her books There was that pesky problem of British and American editions with separate titles leaving me hopelessly confused about what I ve read Thankfully A Murder is Announced had the same title in both editions which might be why I remember it so well It might also be because it is an amazingly well written with a nicely tricky mysteryOh Letty A murder has been announced in the personals section of the local gazette You kids may not know this but that s like Craigslist in print form And game murder mysteries were old fashioned acted out parties where guests solved the mystery That s why the residents of the village of Chipping Cleghorn assume they are being invited Nonetheless a newspaper invite bit informal so they contrive excuses to drop by Letitia Blacklock s home As they re settled in having a smoke and a sherry a masked man holds them up The lights go out Shots echo in the dark room When someone flips a light the unknown masked intruder is dead The police are prone to write it off as a burglary gone bad except Inspector Craddock can t uite let it go His godfather points him in the direction of the little old ladies of the case citing his own Miss Marple as an example Before long we meet her in personChristie is in peak form here displaying skill in every aspect of writing balanced with atmosphere character mystery and philosophy with not an excess word present Oh sure had Christie Sandersonized it it could have been far beyond its 300 pages filled with details about the village foliage or the design of their dresses Except those details are there and rarely does she tell us we discover it in clever word choice or implicit in dialogue This may be why A Murder is Announced is one of her better mysteries though she provides a number of clues and red herrings her details are so sparse that careful reading is needed Come to think of it Sanderson presents a symphony in a book while Christie is the soloist the violin virtuoso each note given star attentionClues are dropped I wish I could give an opinion on the mystery but the truth is I ve read this enough times that I remembered the solution just not the reasoning Still astute minds in the Goodreads Agatha Christie Lovers group pointed out Dame Agatha was dropping subtle clues from the beginning along with plenty of red herringsCharacterization is amazing Scant descriptors and yet every utterance hints at character Check this brief oratory by an elderly gardener when being uestioned I ve no idea said Craddock I suppose this hold up caused a lot of talk That it did What s us coming to That s what Ned Barker said Comes of going to the pictures so much he said But Tom Riley he says it comes of letting these furriners run about loose And depend on it he says that girl that cooks up there for Miss Blacklock and as such a nasty temper she s in it he said She s a Communist or worse he says and we don t like that sort ere All he does is talk and with every sentence Christie gives us the picture of the small town the gossip the dynamic between the young and the old the long time residents and the foreigners or furriners as he says And so much about the man himself what he chooses to share with police his education his speech pattern his peer group Clever cleverThe sly humor is a nice touch for an adult read I m not sure I picked up on it when I was younger And it isn t pursued Mrs Swettenham as though you were a worker You don t do any work at all That s not in the least true said Edmund indignantly I m writing a book I meant real work said Mrs Swettenham But I have no doubt that it was a great deal of work indeed to craft a book that provides excellent entertainment and yet such insight into the residents of a small English town An enjoyable trip down memory lane that gives me all new appreciation for her skill The Spider vs The Empire State ve read all of her books There was

Review A Murder Is Announced

A Murder Is Announced Read ✓ 2 Agatha Christie Å 2 Review Review A Murder Is Announced Dames de Little Paddocks ne sont pas les moins surprises Tout le monde pense à une amusante murder party imaginée par uelue facétieux Aussi tout le voisinage émoustillé rappliue t il à Little Paddocks et l'on attend l'heure fatidiue d. I prefer Poirot novels to Marple ones but this book has always been in the Top 5 on my Agatha Christie favourites list This time I actually put myself the uestion why It is NOT because of the investigation or the solution of the crime even though it is very well done in the classic Agatha Christie style red herrings are there to lead you astray real clues are hidden in plain sight and yet elude you completely The answer is characterization which is perfect concise and revealing Dame Agatha depicts her characters without mercy everyone has motivepotentialopportunity to commit murder and yet with humour a deep understanding people are the same everywhere we are all human with faults and foibles This insight into characters as well as the milieu they are placed in reminds me a bit of Jane Austen and what she wrote to her niece Anna on writing novels 3 or 4 Families in a Country village is the very thing to work on Also a uote from Elizabeth Bennet comes to mind Follies and nonsense whims and inconsistencies do divert me I own and I laugh at them whenever I can So this mixture of Jane Austen Agatha Christie which delights me in this particular novel
