    A True Gem

    Agatha Christie has done it again! Th queen of mystery and in this case murder has crafted another excellent novel involving Miss Marple and newlywed couple Gwenda and Giles. The mystery its self hides deep inside Gwenda's past, involving circumstances many would like to forget. The winding and twisting tale of Gwenda and Giles's hunt for the answer to an ages old mystery along with the assistance of lovable Miss Marple will keep any mytery fan glued to their screen.

    This is an okay book to read whenever you don't have anything be

    This is an okay book to read whenever you don't have anything better to read. Agatha Christie is one of my favourite authors but this book wasn't her best work. Don't get me wrong, I read the book in a few days because I wanted to know who the killer was, but it can get a bit boring and repetitive some times. So, not a horrible book, but not the greatest either.

    Loved it!

    I loved this book. I could not put it down. So many twists and turns, I thought I had the murderer figured out a couple of times but was proved wrong. Great story.

    This was an excellent book! If you haven't read Agatha Christie

    This was an excellent book! If you haven't read Agatha Christie before it might be a good one with which to start. It is a very intense cold case with beautiful character development. It has you guessing until the end.... which is really saying something these days! An unbelievable bargain at $2.99. And I thought I had read all of Agatha on bed rest before.....pick it up!

    Boo to cat games

    I came here for book reviews and most of them are a bunch of kids playing cat games. I wish you blamed kids would take your silly, stupid cat games to facebook, myspace or a web site, a blog site or a litter box, any where but here. This site is fir adukts who want to discuss the book in question....not to have to scroll past dozens of stupid nonsensical posts about cats. Bn, please ban these kuds from playing on here.
