    One thought on “The Body In The Library”

    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 figh [...]

    2. I confess to absolutely loving Dame Agatha Christie's books. I find the coziness of them very soothing. Miss Marple's character becomes more 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 l [...]

    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 [...]

    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, foolpro [...]

    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 th [...]

    6. When a peroxide blonde is found dead in the library at Gossington Hall, Colonel and Mrs Bantry are perplexed. However, Mrs Bantry is determined that the crime should be solved, aware that suspicion will fall on her husband ("no smoke without fire") and wisely calls in Miss Marple. When the body is identified as Ruby Keene, a dance hostess at the Hotel Majestic in Danemouth, Dolly Bantry and Miss Marple head off for a short break to do a spot of sleuthing.This is a classic Christie novel and the [...]

    7. Το πρώτο βιβλίο της Αγκάθα Κρίστι που διαβάζω με αφορμή το Όριεντ Εξπρές που είδα στο σινεμά (και επίσης το προτείνω ανεπιφύλακτα!) Το διάλεξα αποκλειστικά για τον τίτλο (γιατί έχω βιβλιοθήκη και ίσως με βρουν κι εμένα κάποτε εκεί να έχω πεθάνει από αφυδάτωση και ασιτία - ΟΧΙ [...]

    8. 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. Bant [...]

    9. 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. [...]

    10. قبلا فکر میکردم رمان های پلیسی اونقدرها هم برام جذاب نیستن و نمیخوندمشون ولی با خوندن این کتاب نظرم به کلی عوض شد , از اون کتاب هایی بود که نمیگذاره کتاب روی زمین بمونه و دوست داری تا آخرش رو با دقت بخونی ببینی واقعا قاتل کی بوده و انگیزه اش چی بوده؟!

    11. 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.”

    12. 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 more than the first time. I [...]

    13. This book will hold your attention from the first chapter, it will impress you with the brilliantly crafted lines and take you straight into the murder scene. It’s a short book, but I assure you it will not affect the quality of it and you’ll enjoy this mystery which leaves you hanging until the end when all is explained.Colonel and Mrs. Bantry, wealthy and upright citizens of St. Mary Mead, wake up one day to find the dead body of a mysterious young blonde woman in their library. This myste [...]

    14. 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 more in this book then the 1st one of the series, Murder at the Vicarage. She outwits every [...]

    15. 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 [...]

    16. 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.

    17. 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 [...]

    18. 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 [...]

    19. "ere sits an old lady with a sweet, placid, spinterish face and a mind that has plumbed the depths of human inquity and taken it all as in the day's work.where crime is concerned, she's the goods."When the body of a blonde young woman is found strangled in the library of Colonel Bantry, rumours start spreading rapidly. Colonel and Mrs Bantry are part of the upper class elite and considered with the upmost respect. Concerned for her husband (who assures her that he has never seen the victim befor [...]

    20. Η πρώτη μου επαφή με την Agatha Christie καταλήγει σε 3άρι (που δεν είναι κακή βαθμολογία, αλλά είχα μεγάλες προσδοκίες). Παρακαλώ τους φαν της να μου προτείνουν τα αγαπημένα τους, γιατί με το συγκεκριμένο δεν ενθουσιάστηκα, αλλά θα ήθελα σίγουρα να δώσω και δεύτερη ευκαιρία.

    21. 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 more clever than me; I didn't spot the killer until it was too late.It's almost a quintessential British village life/ [...]

    22. أولى قراءاتي لشخصية مس ماربل وللأسف كانت الرواية مملة جداكما أن طبعة دار الحياة أخطاؤها المطبعية كثيرة للغاية حتى اسم الرواية خاطئ"جثة في المكتبة " وليس المكتبعلى رغم من جودة الطباعةوهو ما قلل من التقييم بشدة

    23. 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, [...]

    24. مغامرة جديدة في عوالم شيقة وممتعة ومليئة بالإثارة والمفاجآت المغامرة والرواية الثانية لي مع العجوز الثرثارة مس " ماربل " رواية عبقرية تضاف الى روائع أجاثا بالإضافة إلى أنني توصلت الى القاتل وهو أنجاز يحسب لي :) وهو ماجعلها تستحق الـ 5 نجمات

    25. #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 more to the background than I have witnessed Hercule Poirot experience in his books. Overall, I loved it and am glad that my library [...]

    26. 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 [...]

    27. 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.

    28. كالعادة تقف الترجمة حائلا ثلجيا بين الإثارة والتشويق المميزان لقصص أجاثا كريستي. لم تكن بهذا السوء بالطبع ولكنها إشارة إلي أفضلية قراءة الروايات الأجنبية بلغتها الأصلية.ما علينا القصة لجريمة قتل تتعقد خيوطها منذ اكتشافها وما أن تلبث الأحداث بالانسياب حتي تكتشف جريمة أخري [...]
