Death on the Nile review Ñ 103 Like to put my dear little pistol against her head and just press the trigger' Yet in this exotic setting nothing is ever uite what it seem. Hopefully I am not committing any heretical thoughtcrime here but am I the only one who thinks Hercule Poirot comes across as a bit of a doucheapotamus Between the accent the arrogance and the jabbing his butt into everyone s business he reminded of a cross between nosey neighbor Gladys Kravitz and everyone s favorite rapist Pepe Le Pew Now before you get the cheese grater and the lemon juice out for me let me say that this is my first Agatha Christie novel and my first experience with Monsieur Poirot I have no idea whether I started with the wrong book or whether my initial impression of HP will soften as I read At times he was just fine but there were moments when he was so full of himself that I wanted to tie him down and beat him with his own ego Prime example At one point he is heard to remark and I uote And since I am in the habit of always being right which led to me responding And are you also in the habit of always being pompous asstard The my poop stinketh not attitude was just a bit too much for me Still I enjoyed the book and plan to read of Christie s mysteries I thought the pacing was good and AC s writing was terrific I loved the characters except for the aforementioned Toolbag Macdouchenator and thought the mystery was terrific As the title advertises the story deals with a series of murders occurring on a Nile River cruise originating in Egypt There is an excellent set up to the mystery and then once the killing begins the clues come fast and furious I thought it was smart interesting and engaging I did suspect the final answer to the whoduntheshit well before the first murder had occurred but that was just a lucky guess on my part and I don t think it indicates that the mystery was flawed I was still engaged until the very end because I had no idea that my suspicions were correct Of course when the solution was finally revealed I did proceed to pat myself on the back and a gave myself a couple of well donesOverall I had a lot of fun reading this I am sorry it took me so long to come to Agatha Christie s work and I definitely plan to continue I highly recommend this for mystery fans or people just looking for a well written diversion when their knackered from the crap filled drama of the everyday grind 35 stars
