Review: The A.B.C. Murders by Agatha Christie

I must start this review by admitting that I’m a huge fan of Agatha Christie and her detective character, Hercule Poirot. I got wrapped up in this book, as with many others by her, and experienced the usual amusement I feel when I fail to solve her mysteries.

Her extraordinary talent for masterly plotting very unusual mysteries is outstanding beyond words.

Christie gets right to the point in this book and deals with one twist after another. From the first to the last line, The A.B.C. Murders is a smooth read, with one of the most original plots, and one of the most intellectual fictional detectives, you’ll find in the world of books.

Even facing one of the most challenging cases in his career, Poirot remains charismatic and hopeful, ruled as ever by his “little grey cells.” What I particularly liked about this book was how much deeper Christie went in her probing of the culprit’s wicked mind and motive. In conclusion, this is a well-thoughtful, realistic mystery that will strike you as absolute brilliant. Not surprisingly, it’s one of my favorite works by Christie and one of my favorite whodunit novels overall.
