Descripción del producto
Soon to be a Major Motion Picture from Twentieth Century Fox
Following the success of Murder on the Orient Express directed by and starring Kenneth Branagh, Twentieth Century Fox will next adapt this classic Hercule Poirot mystery for the big screen.
Beloved detective Hercule Poirot embarks on a journey to Egypt in one of Agatha Christie’s most famous mysteries, Death on the Nile.
The tranquility of a cruise along the Nile was shattered by the discovery that Linnet Ridgeway had been shot through the head. She was young, stylish, and beautiful. A girl who had everything . . . until she lost her life.
Hercule Poirot recalled an earlier outburst by a fellow passenger: "I'd like to put my dear little pistol against her head and just press the trigger." Yet in this exotic setting nothing is ever quite what it seems.

That said, Christie does cheat. She does not give us all the clues. For example in the book I am presently reading (not Death on the Nile) a suspect secretly and suspiciously bought a book. Poirot finds it and exclaims that he knew it! Do we find out what the book is? No. That is likely a vital clue, but Christie doesn't share it with us. For this reason we are left behind Poirot, but for me that's okay. Her stories weave intelligent mysteries and that's enough for me.
As for Death on the Nile, read the book before you see the movie. They're a bit different. You'll meet more characters in the book, but afterwards, don't miss that movie! It's brilliant with a legendary cast.
One word of warning for Kindle readers: It is missing a drawing of the boat's floor plan. I was very upset when I saw this. Oh and yes, that means I own every version of this book. lol! It's fun to reread time and again.
After being betrayed by her best friend and the man she loves, Jackie begins stalking the newlyweds even going as far as planting herself on a cruise the lovers boarded in an attempt to sidetrack their stalker. The only problem is, Jackie has an air-tight alibi and could not have possibly committed the murder.
Unlike Murder on the Orient Express and And then there were none, the murder does not happen immediately. Although the reader knows the identity of the victim, there are plenty of clues and threats for the reader to sift through before the ultimate tragedy befalls the victim. As in Christie's other novels, a cast of characters are introduced, all with possible motives for wanting the victim dead.
In my opinion, Death on the Nile isn't Christie's best mystery. The identity of the murderer might leave some readers feeling a tad disgruntled. I was able to correctly guess the ending. The novel is still entertaining. The reader will have a lot of fun putting together clues and analyzing conversations and actions trying to solve what seems like an unsolvable mystery.
The story is strong and intricate ... the characters are painted with bold strokes; they are memorable and fit the plot perfectly.
When I read it I see the Acorn / Public TV series in my mind. Not the shallow movie with Peter Ustinov, Mia Farrow and Simon MacCorkindale. The Acorn / Public TV obviously has the benefit of the totally "real" Hercule Poirot ... the incredible David Suchet.
One of the best books in a wonderfully rich and powerful series ... and that is well deserved high praise!
