    I confess to absolutely loving Dame Agatha Christie's books I find the coziness of them very soothing Miss Marple's character becomes 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 refreshingIn the author's foreword Christie writes I laid down for myself certain condi

    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 uite a lot of this novel Thankfully the crime is exciting enough f

3 wearing evening dress and heavy make up which is now smeared across her cheeksBut who is she How did she get there And what is the connection with another dead. 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 uite a lot of this novel Thankfully the crime is exciting enough for us to overlook that minor setback It s a classic Christie foolproof and sturdy plot with a cast of both memorable and useless characters However there are scenes in this that I did find rather graphic for your typical Christie novel I won t spoil it but there is a scene set in a uarry and it is uite out there for Agatha Overall I enjoyed this like I do with most of Christie s books She really can t do any wrong

Girl whose charred remains are later discovered in an abandoned uarryThe respectable Bantrys invite Miss Marple to solve the mystery before tongues start to wag. 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 uniue to the times it is set in It was a pleasure not having anything other than that and class snobbery to overlookBut 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 The dead girl A Platinum Blonde one ofThose Girls chicken s ass face and doubtless not one smidgen better than she should be Later it is revealed she was a virgin you old cowBut what divine fun An actual fictional Body In The Library Cliche central send up a cheap one Then Dame Agatha does her magic the sort that turns things inside out and it s the library that s the red herring the body that s the clue and the mystery itself isn t about ANY of those thingsDivine funIn 1983 ITV s Miss Marple turned the book into a good faithful adaptation starring Joan Hickson headache face It was a bit grave dusty for me as were the other Hickson Marple outings I simply don t get the lady s appeal in the role In 2004 Agatha Christie s Marple did it over and made significant character changes to the evergreen plot I won t spoiler them for you because I think you should watch it The changes are fun I ll say that What a lark and pace you Hicksonians I think Geraldine McEwan makes a damned good Marple But the biggest and best casting delight is the ever joyous to watch Joanna Lumley as Dolly Bantry Delicious

In the Kindle #212 It’s seven in the morning The Bantrys wake to find The Body Kindle the body of a young woman in their library She is Body in the PDF #1000. I confess to absolutely loving Dame Agatha Christie s books I find the coziness of them very soothing Miss Marple s character becomes 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 refreshingIn the author s foreword Christie writes I laid down for myself certain conditions The library in uestion must be a highly orthodox and conventional library The body on the other hand must be a wildly improbably and highly sensational bodyChristie kept to her conditions and the results were excellent Her writing is timeless She keeps you guessing right up to the very end The characters are well developed and detailed The Bantrys are warm and funny but still have their own depth Conway Jefferson who seemed to be permanently in mourning is one of the most interesting characters It was humorous when the author portrays the village s people and their gossip Very tongue in cheek PThe best thing about Agatha Christie is that she writes with typical British wit and humour and also wry observations appearing here and there The skill of observation and drawing similarities between unrelated events of Miss Marple are unparalleled One of the most intricate of plots The Body In The Library is certainly a splendid read for cozy mystery fans
