What this book is about: Someone is murdering people in alphabetical order by name and location and has dared Poirot to try to catch them!
Why I wanted to read it: I've been meaning to read more Agatha Christie this year so that is one reason. The second reason is that I'm vowing to read more from my own shelves. Thirdly, I am participating in a the 52 Books 52 Weeks Challenge and I'm doing it with a twist by reading in alphabetical order! So, this is the perfect choice isn't it?? Get it, A.B.C. Murders......alphabetical reading challenge???? I'm easily amused!
Source: My personal library, but the book was purchased for a quarter from my library sale cart.
- I loved the story being sort of narrated by Captain Hastings. This made the story fun and engaging for me.
- The book flowed and was a fast read.
- Poirot is so quirky and cool...how could I not like him? More Poirot!!!
- I figured out who the real murderer was about 10 pages before the story ended...made me feel like I was playing the board game Clue (which I loved).
I am now addicted to all things Christie and have even listed all of her Poirot and Marple books on my challenge blog. I'm also inspired to listen to some of these books on audio. Has anyone out there listened to these and if so, any suggestions?
