The Body In The Library is one of the classic Miss Marple Mysteries. It is a quick read and definitely worth the time. If you like Miss Marple this is one of her best cases. It really gives an interesting look at life in England at that point in time. The body of a young, beautiful blonde woman mysteriously appears in the library of a wealthy man's home and no one seems to know how it got there. The woman worked as a professional dancer in a rural club in England. By today's standards, her job was pretty tame. The club was frequented by older people who liked to play bridge. No hanky-panky so to speak. She frequently talked to older people, and occasionally she would dance with a male partner who was a professional dancer to entertain the older people. So, how did she end up dead? Needless to say, there are many suspects, but the mystery revolves around how the body ended up in the rich man's library. I'll give you a clue: "This young blonde wasn't looking for a good book to read! In fact, it was never established that she could read." But, I can assure you Agatha Christie hides the answer right up to the very end, and when Miss Marple solves the case, you will be completely satisfie and say: "Why didn't I think of that?" This is a very interesting period piece told with great expository writing that gives the reader an interesting look at another time and another place. I've read most of Agatha Christie, and somehow I missed this one. The book cover caught my eye, and I found this one quite good.

I like Agatha Christie. I enjoy all of her stories and this was no less enjoyable. Yes, it's predictable, but it's still a fun read.

In this Jane Marple mystery, there were really no suprises or twists. Althouh it was enjoyable, it moved very slowly, but with a lot of Jane Marple, it is bearable. I wouldn't recomend it to any of Christie's fans, but if your into that kind of slow moving murders, read this one.

It's not as good as the one I'm reading now, which is pretty interesting. There was only one twist, but it was good nevertheless. The murderer(s) were quite a surprise, as usual. It was interesting, but could be better.

I felt this was an interesting and clever, although rather short, mystery. Sadly it got very confusing as this edition, put out by Appletons, was missing several paragraphs and even a full page or two.

Personally, I am a big fan of Agatha Christe's work, and I didn't like this very much. It was dull, had no twists and turns, just plain old mystery. If you like that kind of stuff, then I guess you'll like this. They say the same things over and over. I don't really recommend this to any of Christe's fans.

How disappointng! How could Agatha Christie make such a horrid book, it's just not like her! I could put the book down! And I'm not the only one who thinks this!

this was the worst Agatha Christie yet!i wasn't shocked at all about who did it. it was just so obvious! and there was like one twist and that was about the 2 bodies. if you buy this book you're wasting your money! This is a Don't read.i don't even think anyone who likes slow mysteries would like the book. It is very, VERY disappointing and very, very, very, VERY boring. I assure you that when you read this book, you'll want your money back!!I give this book a one-star which means poor. It was not poorly written but it had a poor plot.

Delightful Story, ending was a bit confusing. There was too much going on. Though, novel is quite appealing

Agatha Christie set of 1,000 copies and the 70 novels. But each Agatha Christie likes cozy mysteries. However, The Body in the Library is a cozy mystery novel. We kill by a man and Miss Marple has a detective series by Agatha Christie.
