If there’s a better village mystery than A Murder is Announced, please tell me so I can scramble to read it. Admittedly, I haven’t read many of these, so that statement might come across as hopelessly naive. I don’t mind – all I know is that this one provided everything I was looking for.
I’ve enjoyed my nascent reading of Agatha Christie so far. When picking my least favorite novel has me scratching my head between The Hollow and Cards on the Table, you know I’ve been having a good run. That run keeps going with Murder is Announced. It doesn’t pack an emotional punch that’s going to stay with me like Murder in Retrospect, but this may be the most fun I’ve had with Christie so far.
