the reader in a quiet corner

hi, i'm ceecee. my reading interests can be described as eclectic.

i made this account just in case goodreads implodes, but will be eratically updating here.

 

 

Death in the Clouds - Agatha Christie It's almost always easy to read an Agatha Christie in one sitting. (So far, the only mysteries of AC's that took me a long time to read are the Jane Marple mysteries). Hercule Poirot is always engaging (so far).

Death in the Clouds tackles the usual elements of AC's, psychology, the multiple suspects, the red herrings, etc. And the romance sub-plot is always welcome. The plot twist was good, but since I read Cards on the Table, it doesn't compare to that.

It was a pleasant interlude after reading "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" which was more of a heavy - but pleasant - reading.
