BOOK REVIEW: The Body in the Library by Agatha Christie
|The Body in the Library|
Miss Maple #3
After reading several of Christie's books, I learned to expect the unexpected. The least likely person would most likely be the killer, so suspect everyone. I put on my detective hat and closely examined the characters with a magnify glass. In this case the list of suspects is not long, so remembering character names is not too difficult as compared to decide if they are telling the truth or not.
From previous books by the author I had some problems dealing with multiple point of views, but in this story, each characters provided me with a significant information that can potentially lead to solving the case. A clue collected from one individual would build onto the next clue or be a piece in a missing puzzle. Small gestures made by the characters are not left unnoticed; rather they are taken into consideration.
The author wrapped up the story up quite nicely with everyone getting what they rightfully deserved.
