At the age of 16, she went to Mrs. Dryden's finishing school in Paris to study singing and piano. While he went away to war, she worked as a nurse and wrote her first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles , which wasn't published until four years later.

In all, she wrote over 66 novels, numerous short stories and screenplays, and a series of romantic novels using the pen name Mary Westmacott.

site Edition Verified download. By the 's Agatha Christie was a world-famous writer whose books sold like the proverbial hot cakes, but like the Victorian lady she was, her husband's career came first. Of course, it helped that he was an archeologist and she was fascinated by that subject. They had, after all, met on a "dig" when she managed to get an introduction to the director to visit and be shown around.

After the discovery of Tut's tomb, interest in the ancient civilizations of the Middle East rose to fever pitch. The English were nervously watching Hitler's consolidation of power in Germany, but still hopeful that war could be avoided.

Digging in Syria was complicated, but safe and Christie was happy to spend part of every year with her husband while he pursued his discoveries. During this period, she continued to write her popular country house and village mysteries, but she also wrote three books that were set in the Middle East. Perhaps she was too close to the realities of archeology to successfully build a book around it. But a group of English tourists on a paddle boat on the Nile presents endless possibilities for intrigue and complications.

Death On The Nile by Agatha Christie

I love this book because it has the feel of a novel that the author enjoyed writing. It was successfully filmed in and I was surprised to find that I enjoyed the film almost as much as I enjoyed the novel.

Usually I don't! I think it filmed well because the dramatic nature of the book lends itself to being converted into a script. Of course, some alterations had to be made and some characters removed, but over-all it was a fine effort. The fabulous scenery along the Nile didn't hurt a bit.. It's a wonderful thing to be young and rich and beautiful and Linnet Ridgely clearly intends to wring every drop of enjoyment out of her situation.

If she's a trifle over-bearing and arrogant, who can blame her?

If she occasionally wounds people in order to get what she wants, she always tries to make amends. But what if the person she's offended refuses to be reconciled and pursues a vendetta against her and her new husband?

Then there are the lawyers who've controlled her estate during her childhood As a married woman, she now has control and she proves to be surprisingly hard-headed. The comfortable days of keeping her in ignorance are over and there are signs that her "uncles" may have things to hide.

Would they benefit from her death? Poirot has come to Egypt as a tourist, not to get involved in murder, but he doesn't have any choice in the matter. His friend Colonel Race is keeping a discrete eye on the young couple, but will it be sufficient to prevent tragedy?

Death On The Nile

Like many of Cristie's plots, it revolves around a woman who's basically good-natured, but who fails to realize the resentment she causes. To her, everything she does is understandable and reasonable.

Since she's wealthy and people including her husband are dependent on her good-will, who's going to tell her otherwise? It's a sort of mental blindness in an otherwise shrewd woman and it leaves her very, very vulnerable.

And there's a boat-load literally of interesting characters and a good many of them have something to hide. Poirot has his work cut out for him and the shocking finale is as sad for him as for the reader. Love, hate, envy, and greed are all potent emotions, Christie seems to be saying, and none of us is immune to their effects.

15. Death on the Nile (1937) - Suchet

A clever mystery, fascinating characters, some humor, and an exotic setting. How could you go wrong? Christie didn't. AmznAddict Top Contributor: What a fantastic and compelling plot, with an ending that satisfied me immensely. Given the title, I take it that I can spoil it for you- it is a tragic story. Very tragic, actually, but that's what makes for great stories isn't it?

The mystery itself is frustrating Christie had everything out in the open as she was telling the story, and you find that you had the tools all along to put the mystery together.

I love that so much about her. She is not trying to catch you out, forcing a twist that barely makes sense. No, this book is like a journey that Poirot takes you on and you do not need him to finish it for you, but you really want him to because he is an awesome character. I did not know that this book was written as part of a trilogy. In fact, the very first book I read was Murder on the Orient Express which absolutely blew my mind.

This was the second Agatha Christie book I ever read, and now I am hook. You do not need to read this in order to follow along, but if you do- Murder in Mesopotamia is first, followed by this book, followed by Murder on the Orient Express.

I'm not going to give you a synopsis of what the book is about. I hate those kinds of reviews. What I will tell you is that this was my favorite book since the mids. It was the first so-called adult book I ever read and is the book that made me a life long Christie fan. I am 46 today and right beside me is yet another book of hers.

If you like mysteries and puzzles, then you'll likely love these. That said, Christie does cheat. She does not give us all the clues.

For example in the book I am presently reading not Death on the Nile a suspect secretly and suspiciously bought a book. Poirot finds it and exclaims that he knew it! Do we find out what the book is?

That is likely a vital clue, but Christie doesn't share it with us. For this reason we are left behind Poirot, but for me that's okay.

Her stories weave intelligent mysteries and that's enough for me. As for Death on the Nile, read the book before you see the movie. They're a bit different. You'll meet more characters in the book, but afterwards, don't miss that movie! It's brilliant with a legendary cast. One word of warning for site readers: It is missing a drawing of the boat's floor plan. I was very upset when I saw this. Oh and yes, that means I own every version of this book.Given the title, I take it that I can spoil it for you- it is a tragic story.
