This question contains spoilers… view spoiler [I’ve read the book and I’ve reviewed it as well. But one question strikes me the most – Why does Dr. Sheppard help Hercule Poitrot? Does he misjudge him and thought he won’t be able to solve the mystery? And above all he helps him diligently. Belle Haliday This answer contains spoilers… view spoiler [ In the last chapter, Sheppard says that he had hoped his story might be published one day as an account of Poirot’s failure thus bringing prestige to …more In the last chapter, Sheppard says that he had hoped his story might be published one day as an account of Poirot’s failure thus bringing prestige to both his crime and himself.
Given that he didn’t recognize Asesunato when he first arrived, I think he helped Poirot because he didn’t know how to judge him. Sheppard had reckoned with the police, but Poirot was an outside element. Throughout the inital investigation, he stays close to Poirot’s side, something I think is born of the aseeinato that the police clearly suspect Ralph, but Sheppard can’t be sure what Poirot thinks.
I guess in the end, his helpful nature came from a place of careful fear and blatant egotism. He didn’t think Poirot would unmask him, but he wanted to be in the inner circle on the off chance he did.
I have not read any book by Agatha Christie so far. I’m going to start with this highly rated one. Will these books appeal to me as these are years old and we have seen lot of inspired or similar works in movies.? Jennifer Oberth I would also say yes, they’ll appeal to you.
It’s not like trying to read Shakespeare where you need a translation for every line. I just finished …more I would also say yes, they’ll appeal to you. I just finished reading ‘Mousetrap’ and had no problem following everything and I didn’t struggle to do so. I highly recommend Agatha Christie. And don’t watch that ‘Doctor Who’ episode until you’ve read ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ – spoilers.
See all 15 questions about El asesinato de Roger Ackroyd…. Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. I read mysteries in between denser reads and Dame Christie never disappoints me. As in all of her cases involving Inspector Hercule Poirot, Christie unearths layer upon layer of the case, leaving her readers guessing until the very end. Just when you think whodunit, she throws in a twist by revealing a key clue that only Poirot could have thought of.
El asesinato de Roger Ackroyd
Occasionally, I guess the criminal, but other times I am left stumped. This time, in The Murder of Roger Ackroyd, Christie leaves me hanging until I read mysteries in between denser reads and Dame Christie never disappoints me. This time, in The Murder of Roger Ackroyd, Christie leaves me hanging until her final paragraphs, creating a thrilling case.
In this particular case Dr James Sheppard meets his old friend Roger Ackroyd for supper and minutes later Ackroyd is found murdered. To solve this particular crime involving blackmail, drugs, and forced marriages, Ackroyd’s niece Flora turns to Hercule Poirot to get to the bottom of the murder.
As in the other of his cases that I have read, Poirot just happens to be in the area because he is either retired or on a holiday. Here, he claims to be doing Miss Ackroyd a favor and states that this is his last case, which, of course, it is not.
Just as in the other Poirot tales I have read, he uses his little gray cells, stumps the local police, irks the local populace who are happy to be rid of the little Belgian man, yet solves each case in ways that most detectives are not capable of achieving. I am attempting to read primarily women authors during March, Women’s History Month. This month would not be complete without an Agatha Christie mystery because she remains the standard that many modern mystery writers strive to attain.
Roger Ackroyd was definitely a captivating Christie case but not quite at the level for me as Orient Express was. I am enthralled by Poirot’s manner of solving cases, but I must space them out so that his mannerisms and humor do not stale for me. Yet, Christie is still Christie, and this case rates a sparkling 4 stars.
View all 20 comments. After having read it I understand why it is so well praised. As with all her mysteries, it leaves you guessing until the end who the killers is and in this particular case, the way the murderer was unraveled was particularly interesting. Sadly for me, I already knew who the killer was as I accidently found out from an audio The Murder or Roger Ackroyd is one of the most well-known mysteries written by Agatha Christie and the only one to be featured in the Books To Read Before You Die list.
El asesinato de Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie (1 star ratings)
Sadly for me, I already knew who the killer was as I accidently found out from an audio course on Crime and mystery novels. However, I can still appreciate the unique way this novel was thought out. View all 6 comments. Agatha Christie offers her readers an invite, an invite to come and solve her tantalising murder mystery.
It was a real tricky one, though I did have my suspicions very early on. It added little to the story and, for me, only had the purpose of giving her killer an excuse not to be the killer. So it was obviously that person. Most readers seem to have been utterly dumbfounded at t Agatha Christie offers her readers an invite, an invite to come and solve her tantalising murder mystery. Most readers seem to have been utterly dumbfounded at the reveal but I spotted it a mile of, perhaps only because I have seen the same device used in a book by another author.
Nevertheless, when it was finally confirmed it still brought me a great deal of delight. The actual murder event was ever so discreet, tucked in between two paragraphs in plain sight that will always be missed on an initial read. It was the editor afterward that drew my attention to the piece of text, and despite my suspicions I still missed it when I read it the first time.
It is impossible to read this in a slow leisurely manner. I found myself storming through pages and chapters at an alarming rate. Roge actually read the entire novel in one evening and pretty much in one sitting. Christie gives you just enough information to keep you second guessing yourself but not enough to finally confirm your suspicions, at least, until that memorable reveal: Poirot knew all along; he was just keeping the killer as close as possible for as long as possible, baiting him the entire time.
It pushes ever forward, picking up speed, as it heads towards the climax: It allowed her to get way with so much here and Poirot uses it too when he considers the possible murder motives his line of suspects could have. Overall, a brilliant book. This will not be the last Agatha Christie novel I read. View all 7 comments. My Review ooh 4. Was I disappointed, oh no, if anything I’m seriously thinking of upping it to 5 stars.
Despite a gap of only 13 monthsI got so much from this re-read. I’m not going into any spoiler details but it is superbly written with so many red herrings and false clues. So so well done. Maybe a third time, but give me a few years. My Review 4 stars Where to start, well I saw a few other people wanted to read this as a Buddy read, so whilst on a Miss Marple kick challenge I thought why not. I cannot remember ever having read this or even seeing it as a TV adaptation and did not guess the ending until right ackrohd the very end.
Rover central characters of Dr Sheppard and his sister Caroline are excellent, with the Dr playing the Hastings role for Poirot. I think the story is well eo with many twists and turns, and overall generally good i’ve given it 4 starsI was just a little sad at the end.
Read it and find out. View all 5 comments.
El Asesinato De Roger Ackroyd
This Hercule Poirot is a genuine tour de forcea classic of the genre, for a very good reason that you will understand perfectly as soon as you have finish reading it. View all 3 comments. A mystery that lasts till the last page and ends with an unprecedented plot twist.
One of the favorite books that I read in Nothing much can be said about the story or plot, or anything for that matter, without dropping a major spoiler. But trust me, it’s bloody clever.
Agatha Christie will leave you dazzled. One of her finest. Christie is excellent at taking a similar structure – crime committed and investigation ensues – but se each case distinct and clever enough that the story is compelling. I will say that this kind of made me want to punch Poirot in the face sometimes and I feel bad because I liked him so much in Murder on the Orient Express.
I liked him again lirbo the end.
