  • What s my favorite Agatha Christie novel Well, I d have a hard time picking between Murder on the Orient Expressand Sleeping Murder But this one is , um, realish The idea that what happened in Murder on the Orient Express could actually happen pretty far fetched And, yes Sleeping Murder is by today s standards kinda outlandish, too.BUT.Less outlandish than MotOE MY OPINIONPlus, I love me some Miss Marple The main characters are newlyweds Gwenda Giles, but Jane Marple is introduced early on as th [...]



  • Sleeping Murder Miss Marple 13 , Agatha Christie Sleeping Murder Miss Marple s Last Case is a work of detective fiction by Agatha Christie and first published in the UK by the Collins Crime Club in October 1976 and in the US by Dodd, Mead and Company later in the same year 2002 1372 311 1381 250 1384 1393 1373 316 1393 259 1374 280 1373 285


  • In the beginning, a personal anecdote As a child, I was troubled intermittently by a nightmare I am walking around the compound of my maternal grandfather s ancestral home, when I reach a dilapidated building in a secluded corner I open it and enter, even though my better sense counsels against it Inside, it is a prayer room dedicated to evil gods Their pictures are hung all over the walls, and their ugly idols leer up at me Also, the place is full of the images of the tortured victims of these [...]


  • I thought I had read this Miss Marple before, but maybe I hadn t I would have thought the heroine Gwenda being both a New Zealander and having the same name as one of my childhood friends would have stuck in my mind if so.Although this book stretches coincidence just about to breaking point and did lose momentum near the middle, I still enjoyed it Some of Christie s earlier novels have a sly wit in this book the scene with Miss Marple and her physician and she evokes a long gone world of a quiet [...]


  • Although this is listed as the thirteenth Miss Marple novel, and was published in 1976, it was actually written during WWII and shows her as a fairly sprightly lady, compared to some books According to the Agatha Christie website, it should sit between The Moving Finger, and A Murder is Announced, and that is where I have positioned it in my re reading of these books.Gwenda Reed has arrived from New Zealand, charged with buying a house for her, and her new husband, Giles who is due to join her s [...]




  • Book 5 for the Miss Marple challenge I was excited to read this one as this is the first of the books in the Miss Marple challenge that I had not read before I also only discovered because of the challenge that though this book was published last, it was written much earlier and chronologically also falls early in the series This one was in a way Miss Marple s Five little Pigs, a murder that has happened years ago, without even clarity on whether it was a murder but based on a then child s memor [...]


  • One always has hope for human nature Although I m of a Poirot groupie, I tried Sleeping Murder and Miss Marple s detective input on for size to see how it went Better than the one I read with her salivating over rose gardens, it focused on a young couple who moved into a house and needed help solving a mystery, mainly of a memory of a murder that doesn t make sense.It s not the classic whodunnit with a modern murder, and Miss Marple warns not to stir up the hornet s nest that is the past in the [...]



  • Her words held all the pointed innuendo that elderly ladies are able to achieve with the minimum of actual statement.I had low expectations for this one Nemesis broke me Nemesis was the book that obliterated any regards I may have harboured for Miss Marple.It seems, however, that Sleeping Murder was written well before Nemesis, even if it was published last in the series, and that the Miss Marple of Sleeping Murder is not as annoying as her older self, yet.As becomes clear at the end of this boo [...]


  • Last Marple story.After a slow start, this novel picks up in an engaging way Was there a murder And how do you find out nearly 20 years later Marple is present but rather in the background, as as guiding presence, with her down to earth, common sense logic As always, I am fascinated how events can be interpreted in such different ways, and how by turning a little bit, the picture becomes totally different The wrong clothes clue really spoke to me and reminded me of Glaspell s A Jury of Her Peers [...]



  • Vintage Agatha Christie I figured this one out well in advance of the ending, but I still enjoyed the read and remember why Christie was so popular in her time At the time this was written, it probably wouldn t have been so easy to solve the who done it Christie and others have honed my sense of possibilities Miss Marple is a very subtle character in this novel, a guide than a detective A nice break from some heavier readingI m in the process of reading Middlemarch and needed some air.


  • Este primul roman cu Miss Marple pe care il citesc si unul din ultimele pe care Agatha le a publicat El ar trebui sa fie ultimul din seria cu Miss Marple Mi a placut foarte mult felul in care a fost organizata si ca nu a mai respectat calapodul ala obositor de la Poirot, cu o mie interogatorii Misterul cam slabut, dar mi a placut atentia sporita la personaje, spre deosebire de Poirot unde accentul cade pe mister.



  • Coming to the end of Ms Christie s works, I started with the group somewhere in the middle, so will be circling pack to the beginning soon The last of the Miss Marple novels is ending on a high note, the misdirection was in full flower in this story, although years of reading Christie has taught me to think like Miss Marple, trust no one and accept nothing as truth without verification She gives a nice bunch of red herrings in this one, and a lovely newlywed couple A very enjoyable story of murd [...]


  • 3.5 starsIt seemed that, unconsciously, I have suspected the murderer right from the start Even with so many red herrings and distractions thrown in the way, my suspicions for the suspect would not waver So it wasn t really a surprise when the truth is revealed You believed what he said It really is very dangerous to believe people I never have for years Miss MarpleI never realized how much influence Agatha Christie s books and characters have affected me and my reading, especially for mystery t [...]



  • I started last month to read all of Agatha Christie s Miss Marple novels in publication order There are a dozen in all plus some short stories, which I did not read this time through , and this is number twelve My favorite The first Miss Marple The Murder at the Vicarage.Novels featuring Miss Marple 1 The Murder at the Vicarage 1930 12 152 The Body in the Library 1942 12 153 The Moving Finger 1943 4 A Murder is Announced 1950 5 They Do It with Mirrors, or Murder with Mirrors 1952 6 A Pocket Full [...]


  • I joined to review this book I had read every one of Christie s books in younger days I still love cozy mysteries as well as pychological dark ones But I needed to say that in this book, Christie reveals her personal ideas and life than any other There is a character in the book who I think Christie patterned after her personal life There is an unattractive woman who is married to a very charming man and everyone feels sorry for the husband whose wife is a jealous unhappy woman but Ms.Marple sa [...]


  • I seem to prefer watching Agatha Christie rather than reading her books This one grabbed me from the beginning and I was hooked It was only towards the end that I thought it dragged on a tiny bit.


  • Saya lupa sejak kapan tepatnya mulai ketagihan membaca Agatha Christie, terutama seri Poirot dan Miss Marple Bahkan saya menyempatkan diri untuk menelusuri meskipun secara sekilas biografi penulis yang konon dijuluki Queen of Crime ini Dari situ saya mengetahui kalau Agatha Christie dan Conan Doyle berbeda sekitar satu generasi Conan Doyle satu generasi di atas Agatha Christie Tak heran, di beberapa buku nama Holmes dan Watson sempat muncul.Buku Pembunuhan Terpendam Sleeping Murder merupakan sal [...]


  • This is one of my favorite Miss Marples and Rosemary Leach did a fine narration Having read this several times before, I was able to appreciate how skillfully Christie gives you all the clues while misdirecting you Only one place was there a slight flavor of cheating view spoiler when the narrative jumps in time from Kennedy with the Reeds to Lily s murder and back, implying that the murder happened simultaneously with the tea hide spoiler



  • Newlywed Gwenda Reed travels ahead of her husband to find a home for them in the south of England In the village of Dillmouth she see a house for sale that she immediately decides is the one A house where she feels at home even though while walking through the house she had a sudden feeling of dread on the staircase She is having work done on the new house and decides that there really should be a door between the drawing room and dining room and asks for an estimate A workman checks it out and [...]


  • This is a re read of an utterly fabulous, chilling and enthralling mystery I remember how I first felt when I read this book, it was great being with the familiar characters again Gwenda and Giles are so damn precious, they ve definitely been among my favourite secondary Agatha Christie characters Essentially this was a re read of an all time favourite.While Miss Marple didn t feature too heavily in this one, her role was nonetheless vital to the resolution of the crime She was so tender and car [...]


  • Kalau melihat covernya, saya kira pembunuhan bakal berhubungan dengan ular atau bisa ular beracun Ternyata berhubungan dengan pr_____ No spoiler Covernya menarik, embossed pula ular dan hurufnya Mau puasa baca crime ternyata gagal Diselingi LoTR yg kurang lima puluh halaman dan harrypotterandthechamberofsecretsJadinya gak bosan.


  • About 4 or 5 swear words, closer to the end of the book My first Agatha Christie and it was awesome She had me stumped Which usually never happens.
