Why this book?:
I was interested in the story, I enjoy Agatha Christie, I wanted to attend the book discussion that this was being read for.
I've never read this before or watched the movie, and while I had a general idea that it had one person die after another, I was not aware of the ending.
The characters were interesting, though being who they were, some of their thought processes were unfathomable to me. Also, I found the play on levels of guilt and whether the characters are really guilty of accusations or not fascinating. The setting and poem/rhyme added a fun aspect to the mystery and how it was unfolded to the reader.
I really enjoyed this story and trying to puzzle it out. I have read one Hercule Poirot book, and two Miss Marple books, but now I know I need to pay particular attention to some of Agatha's stand alone novels as well. I also enjoyed the discussion and will have to check out some of the movie variations, as they were frequently mentioned.
