Death on the Nile

a Hercule Poirot Mystery
Dec 19, 2018
In this book, the queen of detective fiction, Agatha Christie, shows her careful and keen observation of human nature through a cruel and well planned murder. Yet in a sympathetic, unexpected and romantic way. The exotic location Egypt, and the Nile in specific, in which the main story took place adds to the mystery and uncertainty. Death on the Nile first introduced me to Christie’s work and it well represents her clear logic and rich imagination. However, compared to other detective novels of hers, the plot of this book develops relatively slowly despite of the fact that the death is almost destined at the very beginning. In general, Death on the Nile is worth reading. 4.5/5. @Vayne of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board
