See 1 question about El misterio de Listerdale…. Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. A fine collection of Christie shorts, not featuring any of her famous sleuths. I absolutely loved this collection. The best story in the collection according to me is Philomel Cottage – a real gem of suspense. I always wonder why Hitchcock did not see it. The way Alix Martin’s world slowly unravels as discovers an unpalatable truth and the subsequent race to save herself had me biting my nails when I first read it.
The next best for me is The Golden Ball – how a young man grabs “the golden ball of A fine collection of Christie shorts, not featuring any of her famous sleuths. The listerdalf best for me is The Golden Ball – how a young man grabs “the golden ball of chance” finally after letting it go many a time.
This story actually reminded me a lot of Wodehouse. All aagatha others are nice and lighthearted except for Accident and Swan Song.
Oh, and one more thing – The Girl in the Train would make a fantastic Bollywood movie. I do like that the stories were unpredictable – you don’t know christei kind of crime or mystery will be committed unlike most of Christie’s novels about murderand you don’t know whose perspective you’re getting – the criminal, the sleuth, the hero – without Poirot or Miss Marple to set the stage.
It’s like a collection of short puzzles – not all super strong, but all fun. Nice collection of short stories. Good choice lisyerdale you don’t have time to read a whole book.
These stories are quintessential Christie – pithy, witty, wry, and gay. They take you back to the England of the 20s and 30s The performance by the voice artist is top notch, but the “mistaken identity” shtick and “criminal switcheroo” reveal isn’t quite as clever after the third or fourth ite These stories are quintessential Christie – pithy, witty, se, and gay.
The performance by the voice artist is top notch, but the “mistaken identity” shtick and “criminal switcheroo” reveal isn’t quite as clever after cheistie third or fourth iteration. Still, if you think Agatha Christie is all Poirot and Marple, this collection is a great way to expand your appreciation to this master of mystery.
Wodehouse yang kalo ga salah, temennya Ms. This is a collection of 12 short stories, each with its own charm and a twist. I have read other GR reviews where people felt disappointed with the collection but they are enjoyable and you can read one quickly and move on. One criticism has been that each follows a formulaic plot, however this is definitely not the case for all the stories.
My favourites were “Jane in search of a job” and “Swan Song”, both very clever stories. I’m sure This is a collection of 12 short stories, each with its own charm and a twist.
El Misterio De Listerdale: Agatha Christie: : Books
I’m sure you will enjoy the collection! Maybe I am actually starting to develop a fondness for short story collections. Or maybe Agatha Christie is just that good. Either way, I found The Listerdale Mystery highly entertaining, with twelve really amusing short stories, none of which were disappointing.
All twelve were well written, with different grades of mystery. Most stories had a nice touch of humor or irony as well. Believe it or not, this is the first time I’ve read Agatha Christie, and I was not disappointed. This book of short stories is old-fashioned in the best sense of the word: Some of the stories are more compelling than others, and the amount of danger and intrigue ranges greatly.
All are worth a read, if only for the perfect pacing that Christie employs. It’s a decent sampling of Christie’s short stuff. It’s the right kind of thing to pick up when you feel like you want to read something, and be entertained, but not make a huge time commitment. The first story “The Listerdale Mystery” is my favorite out of the bunch because it’s a little bit mystery and a charming wee romance.
His voice is incredibly easy to listen to and incredibly British.
El Misterio De Listerdale / Matar Es Fácil
Very satisfying to hear Captain Hastings narrate Agatha Christie – can he narrate all my audiobooks? This book I would probably give 3.
Some stories in here are quite forgettable and faded from my memory the moment I finished listening to them. Given that I was listening to two stories a day, I was occasionally trying to think back on one of the stories I had listened to that day and could not remember it in the slightest.
So whilst there were some hits and misses in this collection, the hits were incredibly worth it!
I hadn’t expected this to be a collection of stories, and didn’t realise until I reached the second tale and found that it didn’t follow on from the first! Clearly I wasn’t paying attention, too eager to get stuck into an Agatha Christie whodunnit! It contains a mixed bag of short stories: I think her longer novels are much more enjoyable. A collection of very entertaining stories, most of which are of the lighter variety.
Although they are all mysteries, at least in the broadest use of the term, only a couple actually involve murders, and there’s not a detective story in the lot. All told, these are a dozen excellent examples of Agatha Christie’s versitility. A collection of Agatha Christie short stories. Though these don’t utilize her famous detectives, many are like tiny mystery stories.
Others are more odd and macabre than mysterious. Certainly an interesting collection. I think this is one of the best Chirstie books. She usually writes good short and very boring novels with few exceptions off course. So obviously this one was going to be good, as it is a collection of short stories. These are suspense stories with some thrill.
Good stories with emotionally satis I think this is one of the best Chirstie books. Good stories with emotionally satisfying endings. Was prepared to go “average” with this one, but once I got over the improbability of all the stories, and got into the spirit of the interwar period which just seems like the sort of time anything could happen I had a whole lot of jolly good fun.
This collection of short stories can all be found in other collections like most of her short stories, there is a lot of overlapbut it is a good collection. I particularly like the title story and “Philomel Cottage. AC’s short stories are pretty much the only ones I can ever read – she seems to have the ability to make a short tale seem like a full length novel packed as they are with detail and plot! Some repeats with other collections, but you can never have too much of a good thing: Most of the short stories were great but there were a couple that needed a little tlc.
All in all I gave it a four star. A good selection of short fiction, which can be read out of order. Several stories by Agatha Christie. Well written, as usual. Recommended to mystery fans. My first from Agatha Christie. I wonder how I missed her. Konnte hier das deutsche Cover nicht finden. Some of the stories wasn’t up much but the others were brilliant. Dit boek is meer een verhalen bundel, want er zit zelfs een verhaal in van Hercule Poirot. Maar het is wel een heel mooi boek om te lezen en er zit wat variatie in en dat is wel leuk.
As always, Agatha Christie book s are great. This is a delightful anthology. Even those stories which end in gruesome murder are charming.
