“The Sittaford Mystery by Agatha Christie - Good
Ah, needed some comfort reading and AC never fails me. This one is a standalone ie not Miss Marple or Poirot (although the TV turned it into a Miss Marple).
Usual stuff, someone is murdered and there are a number of people who could have done it and one that is arrested for it. His girlfriend doesn't believe he did it & sets about finding out who really did.
One or too ouch moments with the non-pc language of the time, but still one of the better Agatha Christies - mainly because the TV version was so different as to not spoil it.
“An early Marple/Poirot-free mystery from Christie. Very streamlined and quite entertaining. (Published in the US as Murder at Hazelmoor.) ”Sonia G wrote this review Tuesday, February 21, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“I saw the Masterpiece Mystery with Miss Marple and it was great!
The characters were really good. The motive wasn't very convincing, though. The movie's motive was better and quite believable. Emily and Charles seemed to come to life in the book as in the movie. I was happy that Charles did not end up the murderer and dead in the book, and that he was able to get over Emily's rejection because he is an excellent journalist and snoop.”

“A wonderful mystery with some great characters. Though I admit to not being entirely satisfied with the ending, it is surprising and still makes sense, so I can't -really- complain.”Persy/Dexter P -- RAMFAP 2013 wrote this review Tuesday, August 23, 2011.

“Not my favorite Christie, but I love the cast of characters she creates here. A real village feel and a place I'd like to visit.”Michele Emrath wrote this review Friday, May 13, 2011. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
