It’s that time of year again, you guys. Back to school! For me personally I go back to school in two days. Which means, unfortunately, pleasure reading will be on hold for a few months 😦 I have been so busy doing laundry and packing for school that I almost forgot to do a review on the latest book that I have read.
This book is written by the queen of mystery herself Agatha Christie, whom I love. Roger Ackroyd has been murdered and his niece engages the help of famed detective Hercule Poroit to solve the case.
Like most of Christie’s novels there is not a lot of action, blood or gore but it’s fun trying to solve the mystery using the clues that are given. One of the things I’ve noticed in Christie’s novels is that the killer’s motive is rarely straightforward. However, this killer’s motive was straightforward. And you won’t believe who the hell the killer was! Like Murder on the Orient Express it threw me off! Because of the time period of Christie’s novel majority of the time the women are hysterical and fragile and always in need of a man. It gets annoying a lot but as I said before, in that time period…I won’t say this was the best Poroit novel I have read but regardless I enjoyed it.
Overall, I give it 1 2-3/5!
Until next time!
