Reviews - What do customers think about Best of Inspiration: Songbook (The Christie Collection)?
A worthwhile read, but a bit of a departure for Christie Mar 29, 2008
What can you say in a review about Agatha Christie?? Of course I liked it. I like nearly everything she wrote. However, I did find this book to be different from some of her other books. Usually Christie springs the romance on you at the end of the book - suddenly these two people discover their love and decide to get married. However, in this book the romance goes through almost the entire plot. And of course there is always a dramatic twist at the end of a Christie story. In this book, though, the plot twists didn't surprise me so much. I kinda saw them coming. ;) I wasn't so sure if I liked the romance at the end or not. A part of me was hoping she would end up with a different man. But I enjoyed reading this, as I do all her writings.
An ideal read for a warm bath after a stressful day. Sep 22, 2007
The Man in the Brown Suit is one of my favorite Christie novels that does not fit into one of her regular character series. Much more of an unashamed romance than her other novels, it is an ideal read for a warm bath after a stressful day. Anne makes a delightful detective and intrepid reporter. Identities are switched. Villains are not quite what they seem. The world is traveled. A good time is generally had by all.
The Man in the Brown Suit is Christie's fourth novel, and was published in 1927. Recommended.
Another great Christie novel! Jun 27, 2007
This is a novel with all new characters. You don't have to deal with endless Poirot egotism or Marple simplicity. It has a wonderfully twisted ending that I never would have guessed. I listened to the CD version and the reading was done well.
Intrigue and suspense Jul 19, 2006
I liked this book very much. It's intriguing and full of suspense from cover to cover. I'm a Christie's fan and this is better that most.
Christie's Best Non-Series Mysteries Mar 30, 2005
The Man in the Brown Suit is the best of Agatha Christie's non-series mysteries (Poitot, Marple, Tommy and Tuppence) and one of the first books to showcase her charms as an author. She filled the mystery with many interesting characters and gave the reader two narrators who both are surprisingly interesting and funny in their own unique ways. It is nice to go back to this early mystery and find a successful author discovering her voice. Christie stills insists on filling the story with improbable romance (and, quite frankly, she always did) but, that aside, this is an exciting little tale that travels from England to South Africa with a wonderfully thrilling interlude about a ship. A must for Christie fans.
