    a good mystery

    Appointment with Death is a very interesting mystery story and I thought it was quite enjoyable. The book started out slowly and was confusing, but towards the middle, it picked up and really became a page-turner. The book is a bit hard to understand, but I recommend it if you like complicated mysteries with unexpected endings. Mrs. Boynton. A large, Buddha resembling women, that was mentally controlling her family. She had decided that she and her family should go on a trip to Petra, where they where surrounded by towering red cliffs. These where the last things Mrs. Boynton ever saw. Somehow, she had died. With only 24 hours to solve this case, and the only evidence being a tiny puncture mark on her arm, it's up to you to find out how Mrs. Boynton suddenly died. Other Agatha Christie books are also excellent, and they are all very good reads. The beginning of this book really gives you a sense of foreshadowing, and that the story was slowly coming to its climax, then boom! One of the main characters dies. "You see, don't you, that she's got to be killed?" Beside the fact that it was a bit hard to understand, I really enjoyed this novel. But who killed Mrs. Boynton, its up to you to find out.

    Great mystery

    The book 'Appointment With Death' is a great book that emphases on analyzisng each character and having the story told in third- person omniscient.This book is filled with excitement every step of the way.Once you start this book you cant put it down. At first the book might start off confusing but and the middle its where you can't put it down. Sarah one of the main character tries to help the Boynton's children but soon finds out it would be hard to help them. When the sudden death of Mrs.Boynton gave a huge Suspension of the family since Mrs.Boynton was mentally controlling her family.This book is a great book and you have to read it to find the cause of death and who really killed Mrs.Boynton.Was it the family or the ladies on the trip?Read it to find out!!

    Bloody Brilliant

    This was a good book but my favorite Agatha Christie novel is still 'And Then There Were None'. I figured out who the murderer was before they figured it out but I couldn't see a motive. So, even if you guess the killer, you may not guess the motive.
