    1. Last year the reading the detectives group read through Agatha Christie s Miss Marple mysteries as a yearly challenge Having joined the group late, I did not have a chance to read all of the Queen of Crime s cases featuring her famous spinster sleuth As I participated in the challenge when I could, I came to appreciate Miss Marple as an everyday detective who is a champion for the average person Using her quality of reading human nature to solve cases, Miss Marple became a favorite crime fighter [...]

    2. I confess to absolutely loving Dame Agatha Christie s books I find the coziness of them very soothing Miss Marple s character becomes rounded as we see her interact with her friends Even though there were less action in this book, but I don t think that dooms it to being a bad book, it s just a change of pace, which is often refreshing.In the author s foreword Christie writes I laid down for myself certain conditions The library in question must be a highly orthodox and conventional library The [...]

    3. It had been a while since I read an Agatha Christie novel I combed through the list of her work and thought to myself I m not actually sure if I ever read this one And it turned out, I hadn t Now I want to watch a TV version to see how they interpret it.Great story So much has been re done from this early on work It s a must read for Christie fans and truly any mystery buff When you are rich, and you have people who take care of things and it s nearly 100 years ago what does one do when a body s [...]

    4. There s a small note to the reader at the very beginning of this novel in which Agatha Christie basically writes, the trope of the body in the library is very common throughout detective fiction so I wrote this novel to fuck shit up Good old Agatha This is a Miss Marple story well I think it is, because our beloved Miss Jane Marple is in fact missing from quite a lot of this novel Thankfully the crime is exciting enough for us to overlook that minor setback It s a classic Christie, foolproof and [...]

    5. Someone here on has a shelf called cozy mysteries and I think this is a perfect description of Agatha Christie s Miss Marple series.You can t get much cozier than a tea drinking elderly spinster in a tiny English village The Body in the Library is a clever little book Miss Marple is called in to investigate when her friend finds a dead body in the library What I enjoy about Christie is she doesn t take her mysteries too seriously There s lots of room for humorous little bits I loved the way she [...]

    7. What a pleasure it was to reread this book The first time I read a Miss Marple mystery story,l I was in my early teens and did not appreciate just how smart the woman is She s very observant, and remembers little things about people, and draws parallels between different people to figure out who could have done it the murder, that is And I don t remember Agatha Christie being quite so funny the first time I read this I found myself laughing out loud at the dialogue between Mrs and Mr Bantry at t [...]

    8. Rating 4 solid stars of fiveThe novel, surprisingly, holds up well to a 21st century re read I was so pleased not to find anything shouting at me, oh dear gawd please don t say that Slut shaming, a huge component of the novel, isn t something unique to the times it is set in It was a pleasure not having anything other than that and class snobbery to overlook But goodness me, what a lot of it there was The film people were ever so louche, my dear, just Not Our Sort, soAmerican, you know The dead [...]

    9. 3.5 My nephew Raymond tells me that I have a mind like a sink He says that most Victorians have All I can say is that the Victorians knew a good deal about human nature.

    10. 4.5 Downstairs in the lounge, by the third pillar from the left, there sits an old lady with a sweet, placid, spinsterish face and a mind that has plumbed the depths of human iniquity and taken it all as in the day s work.where crime is concerned, she s the goods Another excellent story Having read it previously, I still remembered the key points, but on the other hand it allowed me to look at all the clues in a different way, and weirdly I ended up enjoying it than the first time I m always am [...]

    12. Agatha Christie books are timeless I always love reading her books when I want something entertaining, light and well written for a mystery I m always amazed at her writing but also her understanding of psychology and how good her books continue to be after all these years The Body in the Library did not let me down Once again, I was surprised by the ending and enjoyed the ride I enjoyed Miss Marple in this book then the 1st one of the series, Murder at the Vicarage She outwits everyone in the [...]

    13. You re Dolly, wife of the respectable Colonel Bantry, living in the lovely little village of St Mary Mead You live a charmed if a bit boring life Isn t it rather frustrating when even winning first prize at the flower show is just a dream They say, you should be careful what you wish for, but how could you be anything but excited when your very own library becomes the scene of a gruesome murder If this isn t the news of the decade, you don t know what is In any case, it s definitely prime discus [...]

    14. Agatha Christie is one of my favourite authors when I want to read something light, entertaining and always well written This book did not let me down Miss Marple was at her very best, guessing who the murderer was quite early in the piece but of course not letting the reader know who it might be As usual I had no idea but just kept happily reading, letting her do all the detective work and enjoying how smart she is.

    15. This is the third instalment in the amateur detective encounters of Miss Marple and makes use of the great cliche of crime fiction the body in the library An author s foreword explains the conditions that Christie imposed on herself to add to the intrigue namely that the library is question would need to be a highly orthodox and conventional location and that the body, on the other hand, must be a wildly improbably and highly sensational victim When Gossington Hall, home of Colonel Arthur Bantry [...]

    16. This was my first foray into the Miss Marple series of Agatha Christie mysteries, and I have to admit first and foremost that this story has one of the best setups I ve ever read in a detective novel one morning Colonel and Mrs Bantry, the owners of a big English country house, are woken by their staff and informed that a dead body is in their library It s a young blond woman in a cocktail dress, strangled to death and sprawled on the library rug No one recognizes her, or has any idea how she en [...]

    18. This was my first Agatha Christie novel It s kind of a random one to start with It s not Murder on the Orient Express or And Then There Were None or any of her other famous works I chose it purely because I liked the cover But you know what I think it was a perfect choice.Miss Marple is absolutely delightful No ego, just a keen insight into the human psyche She s also far clever than me I didn t spot the killer until it was too late.It s almost a quintessential British village life social class [...]

    19. An excellent and very enjoyable read Despite reading the book many moons ago and seeing at least one version on TV I still didn t guess who did it SPOILER alert sort of although I did get the clue about the fingernails eventually And so it s onto the next which I think is The Moving Finger which I believe is a quote from the Wine of the Mystic The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam A Spiritual Interpretation I must admit I don t know why, but I m sure I shall find out.Anyway 3 down and 11 to go, and if th [...]

    20. 5 book in the Agatha Christie ChallengeMost defintely a thrilling tale from Agatha Christie and my first Miss Marple mystery Just when I thought I had it all figured out, the rug was pulled out from under me and there was one person I had overlooked I absolutely loved the dialogue between Miss Marple and the other characters, but I felt Jane Marple was regulated to the background than I have witnessed Hercule Poirot experience in his books Overall, I loved it and am glad that my library has ano [...]

    21. I love listening to Agatha Christie books when it s cold outside It s so cozy and comforting and British This one didn t disappoint, although it s not my favorite of hers so far.The dead body found in the library conceit was old even back in 1941 when The Body in the Library was first published Good old Agatha got ahold of it and decided to make it her own There is indeed a body found in a library at the start of this book, but in quite different circumstances than you d expect The Bantry s wake [...]

    22. My first Miss Marple The tone The unexpected laugh out loud lines The premise of the whole thing The ridiculouness, the characters The whole show of it I shall raid the used bookstore I got this from of the rest of their Marples now.
