Overview

Death on the Nile (Hercule Poirot Series) by Agatha Christie

Soon to be a Major Motion Picture from Twentieth Century Fox

Following the success of Murder on the Orient Express directed by and starring Kenneth Branagh, Twentieth Century Fox will next adapt this classic Hercule Poirot mystery for the big screen.

Beloved detective Hercule Poirot embarks on a journey to Egypt in one of Agatha Christie’s most famous mysteries, Death on the Nile.

The tranquility of a cruise along the Nile was shattered by the discovery that Linnet Ridgeway had been shot through the head. She was young, stylish, and beautiful. A girl who had everything . . . until she lost her life.

Hercule Poirot recalled an earlier outburst by a fellow passenger: "I'd like to put my dear little pistol against her head and just press the trigger." Yet in this exotic setting nothing is ever quite what it seems.

Next to "And Then There Were None", this is my favorite Agatha Christie thriller. This one was first published way back in 1937, and it has everything you would expect from the mistress of suspense: An ingenious plot, way-out but still believable characters and a setting that is as thrilling and adventurous as the exotic land of Egypt itself. Needless to say, Hercule Poirot (whom I much prefer to Miss Marple) is in fine form throughout.

This mystery is one of her most popular books. It feels like a romantic bit of history due to the era (mid 1930's), and it feels relevant to today, because human nature remains, essentially, the same. As one reader noted, the editing is appalling. It has been terrible in all these $.99cent books. The layout is so bad that, often, different dialogue from 2 different characters will be crammed together in one paragraph or section. This can be both frustrating and, at times, puzzling. It takes rereading a section in order for the dialogue to make sense. At other times, the dialogue will jump ahead a page. Also, these cheap editions are missing the character summations found in the beginning of many of the paperbacks. Lots of crime scene diagrams are missing, too.

A fast-paced ride, and a look at Egypt.

I love this book! The beginning was a little slow but kept me on the edge of my seat for the whole book. I would highly recommend this book.

This is one of Christie' s best crime stories. The editing, if one may call it that, is also a crime. It lessens the pleasure of reading Death on the Nile.

Loved every minute of this book. It also reminded me of the change in Society from the 1930's. The phrase "black slave" was used by page 25. Noone would ever say that now, and thank God.

Classic ruined by poor publishing throughout. Don't buy because dialogue, grammar, everything is a disgrace to the writings of this distinguished author.

Never have I seen a movie cover this book correctly. That's what makes it so much better than I expected. I finally got the murders and the motives right but with the wrong methods and chronological order desperately wrong. Great book!

Brilliant read. Love the story and still did not get who did it even though I have read it 3 times during my life.

The beginning drags on; the exciting part takes a while to get to. This was my first Christie novel and I had just finished it today because of a school reading assignment. This book's victim and murderer are interesting as well as the side crimes. Overall this is a good read excluding the dragging start.
