    1 thought on “The ABC Murders”

    1. Back when I had an Audible subscription I acquired 2 literature courses and one of them is called The Secrets of Great Mystery and Suspense Fiction. It is a history of the genre and its many ramifications. There are quite a few books mentioned and I am planning to read most of them as they appear in the lectures. Since Agatha Christie is one of the most important personalities in the history of Crime fiction (among Poe, Doyle, Hammett and Chandler) her works are extensively present in these lect [...]

    2. Agatha Christie is such a crafty devil that midway through a novel she might have you believing that YOU are the murderer!Indeed, The ABC Murders uses slight-of-hand most deftly. Again, I was thrown off the scent of the real killer and was ready to blame others. I feel a bit foolish when she dangles bait in front of me, and although I guess it for what it is, I take it anyway. And yet, if ever it felt good to be played the fool, it's while reading a cracking good mystery. Ah, but never fear, Her [...]

    3. I try to get my math students to read mysteries, because the logical skills of finding a pattern and using inductive and deductive reasoning are often skillfully laid out. If you've read this book, you know why its one that I use to illustrate that point in my class. Sadly, the point is underappreciated by my high school students.

    4. The book starts off with a methodical, serial killer sending Hercule Poirot a letter of a future murder! Did a person just die and how do they find the victim?Enter the mind of the great Agatha Christie.I loved that Agatha Christie went in a completely new direction with this plot. She usually does a singular murder, not a manhunt on stopping a serial killer.The last part of the book made this a 4-star book for me!It was lagging in the middle for me. I didn’t think the serial killer was who we [...]

    5. The A.B.C. Murders, Agatha Christieتاریخ نخستین خوانش: بیست و هفتم ماه اکتبر سال 2014 میلادیعنوان: قتلهای الفبایی؛ نویسنده: آگاتا کریستی؛ مترجم: محمدعلی ایزدی؛ تهران، هرمس، کارآگاه، 1392، در 278 ص؛ا. شربیانی

    6. “Our weapon is our knowledge. But remember, it may be a knowledge we may not know that we possess.”----Agatha ChristieAgatha Christie, the Queen of Mystery, has spun and extremely intriguing crime fiction and the thirteenth tale from her Hercule Poirot series called, The A.B.C. Murders that revolves around the anonymous letters stating as well as challenging Poirot that a murder will take place in the alphabetical order in a random town, and that intrigues the clever Poirot to come out of hi [...]

    7. Agatha Christie is a WITCH! I don't know how but she manages to confound me EVERY TIME I read one of her books. Specially, with this one. You're going with the story, reading with a flow, building up to the climax, and then suddenly whatever you were thinking is snatched away from you, and you begin to look at the things in a way that you never thought of until now.And to do her justice, not only was this story (and any of her others) thrilling, but it had an element of reality better than most [...]

    8. Was the killer working his way through the alphabet? That’s what M. Hercule Poirot wanted to know. And his offsider Captain Hastings was of the same mind.Andover and the elderly Mrs Ascher; Bexhill and a young Miss Betty Barnard and Churston and a gentleman by the name of Sir Carmichael Clarke had all met untimely deaths at the hands of a maniac who would leave the ABC Railway guide near to or on the body, showing each destination as proof he was once again bettering the police, but especially [...]

    9. These alphabetical serial murders are a bit different from the usual Christie crimes -- or ARE they?For once I solved the murder before the end. My little gray cells must be working harderor I've simply read enough of these stories to be a better guesser.

    10. Agatha Christie is quickly becoming one of my favourite authors and definitely a go-to author for when I fancy a quick pick-me-up!This novel is the 13th book in the Hercule Poirot series, I am reading them out of order as I'm just grabbing them from my library's e-book collection when they become available - although I don't think it matters too much if you read them slightly out of order!- This novel follows Poirot as he endeavours to solve a series of mysterious murders. After receiving an ano [...]

    11. 3.5 starsEven though this book belongs to the Poirot series it is very different to the other Poirot books. Most of the books in this series belong to the cozy mystery genre and the only other time I have read Christie attempt something different in the Poirot series was in The Big Four. That was not something I enjoyed but relieved to say I actually enjoyed this attempt.In this the murderer sends letters to Poirot himself issuing a challenge. Reminded me of the infamous Zodiac Killer.The whole [...]

    12. “There is nothing so terrible as to live in an atmosphere of suspicion - to see eyes watching you and the love in them changing to fear - nothing so terrible as to suspect those near and dear to you - It is poisonous - a miasma.” Hercule Poirot gets a few surprises – his old friend Hastings has come for an extended stay and visit, and a serial killer has decided to target him with teasing notes before he strikes.As always, clever. The point of this one was the journey and not the destinati [...]

    13. Before I begin my review, let me start off my saying I am a HUGE fan of Agatha Christie. Throughout the years I have always used her novels as "go to" books if I am in a literary dry spell and yearn to read something I am guarentee to enjoy. My girl Aggie usually hits the spot! However, sadly, I must say that "The A.B.C. Murders" is thus far my least favourite of all her books. The following may contain spoilers:Poirot, everyone's favourite detective, receives a mysterious letter warning him of [...]

    14. বই বিষয়ে বলার আগে, আগাথা ক্রিস্টির সম্পর্কে কিছু কথা বলে নেই। রহস্য,রোমাঞ্চ,ক্রাইম থ্রিলার,গোয়েন্দা কাহিনী, মার্ডার মিস্ট্রি - আমার পড়া বেশিরভাগ বই-ই এই ঘরানার ভেতর আবদ্ধ। স্বাভাবিক কারণেই [...]

    15. Trước khi 2 chương cuối cùng mở ra, cảm giác của mình là hoàn toàn không thỏa mãn :3Tính tới thời điểm đó thì mình thấy 1 sự may mắn ngập tràn dành cho những người thuộc team phá án. Mình mong chờ việc ông Poirot sử dụng 1 chút chất xám như thường lệ, cùng với sự trợ giúp đắc lực về mặt chân tay của đội quân nhí nhố Scotland Yard, để bắt tận tay day tận trán gã nhân vật X đó. Ở [...]

    16. "Words, madmoiselle, are only the outer clothing of ideas."Agatha Christie isn't called the Queen of Crime for nothing, you know, and this book was a prime example of her proficiency. Generally, her books have an array of suspects, and we readers have to guess who the culprit is before the ending arrives, but this book was quite different. How, might you ask? You see, this time Christie handed us the murderer (view spoiler)[or so we thought (hide spoiler)] on a silver platter. Most of the myster [...]

    18. "Let us see, Mr. Clever Poirot, just how clever you can be."This is the 13th novel in the Hercule Poirot series and, I believe, is Agatha Christie at her prime. Some of the best Hercule Poirot stories (IMHO) are those in which Poirot's friend Captain Arthur Hastings appears and acts as narrator. One of the unusual aspects of this story is that it is told in both the first and third person narrative. And the third person narrative is reconstructed by the first person (Hastings). The story opens w [...]

    19. Hercule Poirot receives a letter which warns about a murder to take place in a named town on a set date and signed only as ABC. The police think it a hoax and pay little mind to it until a woman is murdered in that town on that same date. At the crime site, an A.B.C. Railroad Guide is left behind. The crime attracts very little attention until a second letter arrives for Poirot, a second crime is committed and the railroad guide is left behind once again. This serial killer is working their way [...]

    20. Απογοητέυτηκα λιγάκι. Υποψιάστηκα τον δολοφόνο και έπεσα μέσα είχε αρκέτους υπαινιγμούς για αυτόν/ή. Δεν ήταν τυπικό μυθιστόρημα της Κρίστι,ήταν λίγο πιο περίπλοκο όμως μου αρέσουν περισσότερο τα συνηθισμένα της. Δεν ήταν άσχημο όμως, ήταν γρήγορο, ήταν έξυπνο (όπως πάντα [...]

    21. 3,5-3,75 (I CAN'T DECIDE) STARS.I'm not going to write a big review here, so don't be afraid of spoilers.I just wanted to say that this book is really good and the whole idea of "The A.B.C. Murders" was pretty intriguing.But the ending was disappointing (for me personally).I was waiting for something like this (As usual, when it comes to detective stories.): But in the end I was like: Yeah? And all this time it was BLABLABLA? That's good. Right? Nice move, Agatha. Despite the fact, that I pretty [...]

    22. I truly love Hercule Poirot mysteries. This one was SO very good. I am not sure I can do a review without giving a ton away, so I will just say it was awesome and I was totally surprised and I cannot wait to read another M. Poirot mystery. I highly recommend this to any mystery-lover. ♥

    23. “Who are you? You don't belong to the police?'“I am better than the police,” said Poirot. He said it without conscious arrogance. It was, to him, a simple statement of fact.Poirot #13 is one I had read many years ago, but am re-reading anyway, since I am not reading them all in order.In this one Christie creates an idea followed by hundreds of others in different ways: Having a killer use the alphabet to associate with his killings--Mrs. Ascher in Andover, then Betty Barnhard in Bexhill, a [...]

    24. ماجرای قاتلی که دست به یک سری قتل های زنجیره ای میزنه و الگویی که انتخاب میکنه قتل به ترتیب حروف الفباست (اسم و فامیلی و شهر) به عنوان مثال اولین مقتول خانمی بود به اسم آلیس آشر که در اندوور به قتل میرسه زیاد خوشم نیومد میتونست خیلی بهتر از این باشه (view spoiler)[ اشتباه نشه داستان قاب [...]

    25. A far-fetched plot, but interesting nonetheless - about a serial killer who chooses his victims in alphabetical order (hence the title). However, there is much more hidden beneath the apparent alphabetical obsession: Readers from Kerala will immediately recall a popular movie from 3-4 years ago, which was plagiarised in part from this novel.

    26. Sadis dan licik sekali pelaku pembunuhan ABC ini *shaking head* Ingin membunuh si ini tp akhirnya merembet kemana mana.

    27. A great narration of a true classicWhen Captain Hastings comes back on a trip to London from his new home in the Argentine, he hastens round to visit his old friend, Hercule Poirot. After they've done a bit of catching up, Poirot shows Hastings a bizarre letter he has received, warning that a crime will be committed on a certain date in Andover. When the day comes, so does news of a murder – Alice Ascher, the owner of a small newsagents, has been found dead, with a copy of the ABC railway guid [...]

    28. I really liked the plot in this story – it’s the main feature of The ABC Murders – and the trick is to write a review without spoilers! Here goes.As the title suggests, a series of murders begins to take shape – indeed ‘serial killings’ in today’s parlance. The challenge heaped upon Poirot is to pre-empt the killer, who writes to him in advance of the next atrocity. An ABC Railway Guide is left with each victim.First there is Alice Ascher in Andover. Next Betty Barnard in Bexhill. [...]
