The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie

Hercule Poirot Mysteries #4

Lately, I've had the itch to read more mystery novels. I recently read The Moonstone which was an amazing mystery novel. It was so well done I thought all great mystery novels would be the same, but I was wrong.

Agatha Christie is a famous author but I didn't really like this novel. I read that this novel was one of her best but it didn't do it for me. The characters kept running around in circles and the Belgian Inspector Hercule Poirot was downright annoying. The culprit of the murder they found at the end logically fit the clues, but it felt contrived. The whole book felt like a good imitation of a mystery novel with the soul missing.

I was disapointed with this one, but I'll still try to find some more exciting mystery novels to read in the future.
