This is the first Christie’s book that I have read, and I find it a good thriller, it’s like when you just want a break from those elephant type books, and from the ones, for which you need to keep your sense open. Actually I was not having any good book to read, and was not in a mood to take thick ones, and then somehow I got hand of this one, and liked it from the first page. Its happy go lucky nature in each page actually attracted me to complete this book.
I even heard friends commenting, that Christie is for kids, but I don’t seem to understand that how??May be the simplicity with which Christie writes make people feel a lack of sophistication in the story, but I feel only a simple story and not the sophisticated can make you relax and feel good. I may again take some of other Christie’s book, when I will need to refresh my mind for reading.
If you can at anytime love simplicity and energy in any book, then can pull this one.
