SHORT PREVIEW - DEATH IN THE CLOUDS BY AGATHA CHRISTIE



This seemed a very simple detective story. A murder takes place on a very short flight between Paris and Croydon. The time could almost be put down to the very minute and the number of people on the flight is very limited. The number of people who could be eliminated from the list of suspects is also great so that the number of suspects is quickly whittled down.

I thought for once I had got it down not even half way through the story and was quite chuffed that for once in my life I had got it right!!!! AC is much cannier than I am and to cut a long story short I was way too wrong in my assumption.

A quick, very easy read which was what I needed. I have been reading, have been visiting the blogs but not finishing a book and not done any reviews since last Sunday. Work has been heavy and one crisis after another at home!

I remember thinking when I read this one that I was totally born in the wrong era - when did flying become so uncomfortable?!

Mystica, I hope everything is fine on the homefront. I haven't read this particular book yet but I intend to read more Christie novels this year.

I'm glad you found a book that fit your life last week. Sometimes you just have to enjoy reading and forget about reviewing. I hope life quiets down a bit for you.

I've always been curious about Agatha Christie, but I haven't read her yet. I need to remedy that situation. Enjoy your books!
