A. Christie “Evil under the Sun”

“Evil under the Sun” by A. Christie is a very gripping book, written in a classical Christie’s style. The thing is that the murder is committed not in the first chapters, as it usually is in most detective stories. A reader tries to read as quickly as possible in order to get to the basis of the plot. I must say, that as usual I couldn’t even guess the real murderer. But marvelous Hercule Poirot seemed to know the guilty from the very day of the revealing of the crime. A. Christie deliberately gives a reader a list of the potential suspects in the beginning of the novel. What is more, she describes the characters and hides in those descriptions the motives for committing the crime. Though I couldn’t make out who the murderer was, I liked this story immensely.

  1. I like this book. It’s another striking argument that A. Christie is the queen of detective.
