I read many Agatha Christie book when I was in junior high, and I loved Hercule Poirot. The mysteries have aged fairly well in the sense that Dame Agatha was a master of the intricate plot. The death alluded to in the title did not occur until just over a third of the way in, so there was plenty of set up for numerous characters to have contact of some kind with the victim. I did not figure out the ending, so that was a plus but it took too long and there were too many red herrings along the way. There was essentially a boatload of nefarious activities going on, and Poirot had to wade through, and explain to Colonel Race, the who and why of all of them to get to the real murderer. It became a little tedious so I am knocking the overall score to 3.5 stars. But it was, in my opinion, far superior to the last Poirot I read which was Death on the Orient Express. ( )

In which the Belgian detective’s Egyptian holiday is ruined by love triangles, tourists, and murder.

"Death on the Nile" is, in many ways, the quintessential Agatha Christie novel. Amidst a colourful setting, a variety of characters – some openly shadowy, others repressing their quirks – are suspected in a locked-room murder, while romances and rivalries obfuscate Poirot’s attempts to untangle the situation. There’s no surprise, then, that this is one of her most well-known works, and opened the Peter Ustinov “all-star” film series of the ’70s and ’80s. As with all Christie’s work set in Africa and the Middle East, she devotes a good deal of time to the lush setting, although here it feels less textured than "Murder in Mesopotamia" or "Appointment with Death". Both the Ustinov and Suchet films have been very successful, although how can you really go wrong with a steamer on the Nile?

On a personal level, though, I’ve always found this novel to be a little cold and analytical. Perhaps I was just not drawn into the lives of the characters, whose scattershot nature conflicts with their seeming familiarity with one another. ("Murder on the Orient Express" succeeds for the opposite reason: everyone tries to keep to themselves, making us wonder who is connected to each other. Here, no one can keep to themselves, making us wish they would.) Or perhaps the murder – which is cleverly done, and will hopefully leave most people surprised – just relies on too many coincidences for my liking. Ultimately, though, I think I’m biased against this because I guessed the murderer’s identity. It’s probably the only Christie we’re I’ve ever done so, and the lesson I learnt was that I’d rather be surprised!

[Incidentally, Colonel Race makes his final appearance in Christie's canon and, although his part could have been played by any old friend of Poirot's, it's nice to see Christie continue to interweave her narrative worlds.]

In short, top marks for construction, and it’s certainly famed for a reason, but it’s just not my bag.

I love Agatha Christie and read this book many years ago. This reread left me feeling conflicted. I'm used to not liking the victim in her books, but something about Linnet really rubbed me the wrong way. Having absconded with her friend Jacqueline's fiance, Linnet and new-husband Simon find themselves stalked on their honeymoon by the scorned Jacqueline. Linnet winds up dead, and, on the surface, it seems impossible that Jacqueline committed the crime. That leaves Poirot to figure out who did the dead. As exotic location makes this a fun read, and Christie always tells a good story, this just isn't my favorite of hers. ( )

Very Good Murder Mystery

It's been awhile since I read an Agatha Christie novel and I will say she does know how to set up clues. There were so many possibilities and ways to make the evidence fit the story - but in the end Hercule leads us to the only real solution to the crime. I need to revisit Ms. Christie's novels! ( )
