    as should be expected from an agatha christie novel, the mystery is engaging. my main source of enjoyment from this book came from the characters, however. tommy and tuppence (in this book anyway) are a couple of young, vibrant twenty-something pals in need of money who re-meet each other in the middle of a crowded public area (i can't remember if it was the street or a subway stairway). they stumble into the mystery-solving business accidentally while looking for easy ways to make cash, and i have to say they are charming, hilarious, and adorable. they're very keen on the idea of being "real" detectives, most of their romantic notions about it coming from films and popular novels. they tease each other a lot and call each other "old thing" or "old bean" interchangeably despite being very young in this book. they are without a doubt one of my favorite literary pairings!

    This book is dated and done well. I felt all the expressions made the book seem to be written in the time that it was set. Very well done.

    This was a very engaging book, I enjoyed reading it, and trying to figure out things from the start. I like the fact that it wasn't full of swearing or sex which I feel can ruin a book. How often I have had to toss them because of this.

    This was a great read. I was sure I had the bad guy figured out and then got thrown for a loop. It was hard to put down!
  • Great read!

    I have been an Agatha Christie fan for years but somehow didn't remember this one. So glad I found it. It is one of her best!

    Good read, the suspense of the twists and turns in the plot made this a real "page turner"! Agatha Christy has done it again!
