    very innovative

    As a non-native English speaker, this is the first time that I attempt to read a detective fiction in plain English. It took me two good weeks finishing reading it. The storyline is not very exciting comparing to many recent fictions of the same kind, however the ending of the book when everything is revealed does delivery me a huge shock. For sure, I'll go over this book for a second time in near future to trace down author's hints throughout the book. Okay, what I like about this book are the followings 1) Everything appears to be logical. This means that, careful readers, in theory, should have equal opportunities to discover the murderer, despite the fact that this is very difficult for this book. 2) The way of story-telling is very innovative at the time of writing. It does deserve to be acknowledged as one of the best classical detective fictions. 3) The book is full of humorous ingredients. I, in particular, like the dialogues between the narrator and his sister. By reading them, I also get some idea of the lifestyle in a typical western village in early 1900s. I rated the book with 4 stars, because I personally do not like detective stories to be written in this way .

    The Murder of Roger Ackroyd

    Very interrupting as usual, no inkling of the real suspect till the very end. I enjoyed this mystery as much as all the other very brilliant mysteries of Agatha Christie.

    Surprising twist

    I read this book a long time ago, maybe 50 or 60 years. I have long been a fan of the mystery genre and this novel hooked me as a permanent fan of Agatha Christie. It so surprisingly stumped me and remains one of the few books in which I was never able to guess the murderer before the reveal. Ms. Christie knew how to craft a mystery to immediately capture the readers’ attention and keep them hooked to the very conclusion. If you are not a fan or have yet to discover Christie’s excellent collection, I suggest this one.

    Find out the motive

    What a thrilling immersion in the life of this little village where Hercule Poirot decidedly strikes again and uncovers maybe the biggest plot twist to date. Follow the motive, find the culprit.

    Excellent Read

    Very interesting reading. I have always liked reading Agatha Christie. I love the twists in this read. I figured out the murderer when Poirot held back the doctor. Very clever ending...a great read for anyone into mysteries.
