The Murder of Roger Ackyrod
Roger Ackroyd was a man who knew too much. He knew the woman he loved had poisoned her first husband. He knew someone was blackmailing her – and now he knew she had taken her own life with a drug overdose. Soon the evening post would let him know who the mystery blackmailer was. But Ackroyd was dead before he’d finished reading it – stabbed through the neck where he sat in the study.
This book was thouroghly enjoying from start to end. I was captured from the begining, Agatha Christie has written a beauty. The language was exciting in the fact there many words that I did not know and the french added an extra touch. Obviously this book written in the 1920s, but felt like a classic murder mystery and had turns and twists. I liked how it kept wanting me to read on and how it revealed important info bit by bit wanting me to find out what happen next. The best and most exciting bit of the book was no doubt at the end with the murderer reavealed and boy was it surprising. But I will not tell you who killed Roger Ackroyd, you will need to read it and find out for yourself.
