Agatha Christie: A Murder is Announced

Jól esett most egy klasszikus angol krimit olvasni, ráadásul eredeti nyelven. Nagyon tetszett a hangulata, a történet felépítése, egyedül azt sajnálom, hogy szokásomtól eltérően megsejtettem, ki a gyilkos. (Hiszen az esetek nagy részében mindig az, aki a legkevésbé gyanús, nem? :D) A motivációinak a magyarázata és a teljes igazság kifejtése viszont nagyon érdekes volt.

Agatha Christie: A Murder is Announced

Miss Marple újra nyomoz, ismét a háttérből mindent felderít és kitalál.
Érdekes feltevésből indul a történet, mi szerint előre hirdetésben meghatározzák mikor történik egy adott gyilkosság. Aztán persze semmi nem az, amire elsőre látszik. A vége, amikor feltárja Miss Marple az okokat, szerintem ez egy igazán szomorú sorsot mutat be, így én empátiát éreztem a gyilkos iránt is a végén.

Egy idő után rájöttem, ki a gyilkos, de ez egy igazán jó Miss Marple történet volt. tetszett, hogy a szálak messzire nyúlnak a múltba, de a végére azért kikerekedik a történet.

Audiobook listening. I knew this inside and out – that's why I chose to listen to this one, I felt rather poorly. Was fantastic remedy. Can money change people so much I wonder? AC must have had really bad experience about this :(

Agatha Christie: A Murder is Announced

A legelső könyv, amit Agatha Christie-től olvastam még jó pár évvel ezelőtt – nagyon jó! Azóta is az egyik kedvencem tőle.

Szólnak előre, de te mégis megdöbbensz, hogy megtörténik. Újabb Christie story kiszámíthatatlan fordulatokkal, meglepő befejezéssel és különös egybeesésekkel.

When you’ve read all about the Pre-Raphaelites you realize just what fashion is. They were all terrifically hearty and slangy and jolly, and laughed and joked, and everything was fine and wonderful. That was fashion, too. They weren’t any happier or heartier than we are. And we’re not any more miserable than they were. It’s all fashion, I tell you.

“Oh, Letty, shall I run in and tell Mitzi just how to cut the sandwiches?”
“No,” said Miss Blacklock, steering her friend firmly into the hall. “She’s in a good mood now and I don’t want her disturbed.”

Chapter Fifteen -- DELICIOUS DEATH

>!

She’s very much in with all the farmers—because of her pigs, I think. But it’s all a bit hush hush, you know, a kind of local scheme of barter. One person gets butter, and sends along cucumbers, or something like that—and a little something when a pig’s killed. And now and then an animal has an accident and has to be destroyed. Oh, you know the sort of thing. Only one can’t, very well, say it right out to the Police. Because I suppose quite a lot of this barter is illegal—

“I suppose there was once heaps of coke and coal for everybody?” said Julia with the interest of one hearing about an unknown country.
“Yes, and cheap, too.”
“And anyone could go and buy as much as they wanted, without filling in anything, and there wasn’t any shortage? There was lots of it there?”
“All kinds and qualities—and not all stones and slates like what we get nowadays.”
“It must have been a wonderful world,” said Julia, with awe in her voice.
