Overview

Death in the Clouds (Hercule Poirot Series) by Agatha Christie

Hercule Poirot must solve a perplexing case of midair murder in Death in the Clouds when he discovers that the woman in seat two of the airborne aeroplane he’s traveling on is quite unexpectedly—and unnaturally—deceased.

From seat No. 9, Hercule Poirot was ideally placed to observe his fellow air passengers on the short flight from Paris to London. Over to his right sat a pretty young woman, clearly infatuated with the man opposite; ahead, in seat No. 13, sat a countess with a poorly concealed cocaine habit; across the gangway in seat No. 8, a writer of detective fiction was being troubled by an aggressive wasp.

Yes, Poirot is almost ideally placed to take it all in, except what he did not yet realize was that behind him, in seat No. 2, sat the slumped, lifeless body of a woman. Murdered, and likely by someone in Poirot’s immediate proximity.

Death in the Clouds is by far one of my favoritest (I adknowledge the poor grammar) of Agatha Christie's books. I guessed who did it fairly quickly, but I still think it was something worth reading, despite the fact it had little to do with wasps (abnormally large or otherwise), which was much to my dismay. It's a great book. Read it! Also, if you enjoy Agatha Christie's books, you might find the Doctor Who episode "The Unicorn and The Wasp" kind of interesting, because they go about mentioning every single (well, almost every title--but it's amazing how many they can squeeze into the dialouge) Agatha Christie book, which may be mildly amusing for a few of you...I don't know. Maybe.

I was completely surprised by the ending of this book. One of Christie's best.

Enthralling plot twists and brilliant inquiry by Hercule Poirot leaves you with a result not even a psychic could predict.

I enjoyed it very much. Agatha Christie was a genius at developing crime stories.

Read the book and at the end of it you will learn what i mean by being 'unconvenitonal'. But for that the reader must have read her other books too. One more thing i liked about the book was it doesnt have the suspects held up in the flight for hours as was the case in Murder on the orient express. Here they have been allowed to roam freely by the great writer. A very very deceptive ending but satisfying nevertheless. An unusual finale but a relieving one.

A fresh change from the other Agatha novels. In the air is double the fun!!!

I haven't read this yet but I thought of doctor who to because of the wasp on the cover, "the unicorn and the wasp" is one of my favorite episodes with donna noble. I was somewhat disappointed to find out that it doesn't have much to do with giant wasps, i'm still planning to read it.

Christie reigns supreme! As always, the story is intelligent, tightly plotted, and well-paced. Plus, you can't help but have an innocent little crush on Poirot!
