    " This is also a very famous one, Miss Marple solves a double murder and then in the end you think and a very chilling felling comes upon you as the killers are revealed. "

    " A body was found in the library and immediately after the police were called, Miss Marple is called. This story is pretty complex and I liked it because there were not too many characters to keep track of. I knew who everybody was and everything fit into place. Since I've been reading these in order, I've been able to recognize some of the recurring characters and its fun to see what's happening to them. For example, in the first book, we find out the vicar's wife is pregnant. In this book, we find out that she has a little boy that she adores. Because these snippets are very subtle, one had to be interested in the lives of the side characters to pick up on them. It really feels like your living in the village too and finding out information about everyone as the series professes. I'm definitely looking forward to the next book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsay | 1/16/2014

    " Christie is such an easy read. Her dialogue and humor made me smile. And she really keeps you guessing to the very end! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim | 1/14/2014

    " Second volume in the Miss Marple series. The boby of an unknown woman in flashy clothes is found strangled in the library of the staid, respectable Bantry's. It's up to the clever Miss Marple to save her dear friends. Possibly my favorite Miss Marple tale alongside the "4:50 From Paddington." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zimes | 1/7/2014

    " I love how Miss Marple equated the suspescts with people from St. Mary Mead. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cecilia Gonzalez | 1/2/2014

    " she always tricks me! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Luis C | 1/1/2014

    " No pude saber quien era el asesino hasta el final... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Veronica | 12/30/2013

    " This is the first book I've read with the character Miss Marple in it and I wasn't disappointed. I never get tired of the crazy old phrases that were common way back then. I love Agatha Christie's books a ton! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sophia | 12/22/2013

    " This summer, I have been hooked on Agatha Christie. Found one at my Grandma's house and haven't been able to stop reading about the adventures of Miss Marple. I would recommend this to anyone who loves mystery, or just needs a good book to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna Evensen | 12/8/2013

    " A quick, easy, entertaining, clean read. My first Agatha Christie and I really enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jane | 12/1/2013

    " A reread of a book that I last read when I was a teen and plowed my way through the entire Christie corpus. (Pun intended.) Since I read the Miss Marple stories first, it was great fun to revisit her from a distance of 30+ years. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristen | 8/23/2013

    " A good one but I realized 20 pages in that I had seen this done on 'Masterpiece! Mystery' and already knew the big plot twist. :( "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ilka | 7/15/2012

    " This was the first book I ever read by Agatha Christie and I loved it so much, I am now trying to get my hands on all the others. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daimen Vauban | 4/21/2012

    " Certainly a short read, but an eventful one. Lots of entertainment and certainly easy to believe it as a 90 minute mystery movie. Looking forward to watching it now that I've read it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sue | 1/30/2012

    " A dead body is discovered in a library... Miss Marple helps the police discover who committed the murder. A good story with some unexpected twists. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ruth | 12/27/2011

    " I'm a huge Miss Marple fan. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peter | 12/25/2011

    " Another fun mystery by the queen. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Collin Bost | 12/13/2011

    " Good set-up, fun settings, colorful suspects. You go, Miss Marple. You're so much cooler than that asshole Poirot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Miriam | 6/4/2011

    " Agatha Christie always manages to surprise me, no matter how much scheming and plotting I do throughout the book, the ends are always an eye-opener! <3 "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa Arthur | 3/24/2011

    " I adore Miss Marple, and especially love the mysteries set in the upper class 'set. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Martha | 10/22/2010

    " Love Miss Marple!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 10/1/2010

    " This event in Miss Marple's life gets referenced in her later books and became my primary reason for picking this up. I'm honestly convinced as to why her neighbors and even the police hold her in high regards. She goes about investigating things in her own way. Trust nobody. "
