Taken from my blog post grew up on Christie At the time, I was limited to whatever my local library branch physically had on the shelves, so it took awhile to work my way through her bibliography, and even now, I m not sure I ve read all of her books There was that pesky problem of British and American editions with separate titles, leaving me hopelessly confused about what I ve read Thankfully, A Murder is Announced had the s

Review to follow when I can get to my laptop Right I now have access to a proper keyboard, so I can write my review Now this book to me was heading for 5 stars, until one particular incident view spoiler when Miss Marple hides in the cupboard that bit is ok but then mimics the dead Dora to unnerve Ms Blacklock This to me sounded very unlikely, and indeed completely unnecessary
3.5 I seem to be out of synch with most of Christie s other fans, as, in spite of the very original scene setting beginning, I don t consider this one of The Divine Christie s better works.Other than the beginning, the other pluses were some great dialogue, learningabout life in wartime Britain and the unintentionally hilarious mentions of old pussies Ye Gods and Little Fi
