I always say I m not into the mystery genre, but whenever I read one I m riveted Murder at the Vicarage has some clever misdirection The murder is plausible, the details creditable and the solving of it all rewardingly confounding I found the writing style reminiscent o Who doesn t know the famous Miss Marple and her investigation talents When it comes to well known detectives in classic literature, along with Sherlock Holmes and Hercule Poirot she will belong to those who are mentioned first I can almost imagine the gossipy, annoying and very inquisitive lady snooping around the village, and it s easy to understand why a smart character like her earned such a recognition beneath crime and mystery novels Murder at the Vicarage is called the first book in the Miss Marple series, yet she only appears in a handful of scenes, irregularly interspersed in the course of this novel.
In the first place, Agatha Christie writes about a colonel s death and the small town s vicar who tries to discover the murderer s identity Most of the characters will at some point of the novel be suspected of b This first Miss Marple mystery is deceptively gentle, with much of the story narrated by the mild mannered vicar When he returns to the vicarage to find the body of Colonel Protheroe shot in his study, the vicar becomes involved in the murder investigation, aided by his neighbour Miss Marple There is a wonderful list of suspects, motives and false trails along the way, until Jane Marple untangles the threads and makes everything clear.
Not only is this a masterfully plotted story, but it introduces us to St Mary Mead and a cast of characters who will become familiar friends in later books There are surly housemaids, ne er do well poachers, gossipy old ladies and crotchety old men in abundance As Miss Marple is keen to point out, you can see all of life quite well in a small village and nobody understands the undercurrents of life quite like she does Wonderful fun, well written I pondered and pondered my rating but have decided to go enjoyment and how good this was for the first in a series The Divine Christie had me completely fooled There are faults too many characters some very similar and the characterisation of Miss M is very uneven she is a right old bat at the start, but by the halfway point she is the amateur sleuth I love The trademark fluffiness hides great powers of observation and deduction.
Like there is a lot humour in this novel than most of her later ones And an awareness of social issues Ms Christie puts these words in one of her character s mouthsWe think with horror now of the days when we burnt witches I believe the day will come when we will shudder to think that we ever hanged criminals read with the Reading the Detectives group and most highly recommended The Murder at the Vicarage Miss Marple 1 , Agatha Christieoriginal Publication Year 1930Abstract Debut of Miss Jane Marple, village busybody who applies human nature to crimes Colonel Protheroe, magistrate universally despised, was shot in his study, unheard His wife Anne admits newly arrived artist Lawrence Redding is an old flame, and both confess to murder The local inspector and Jane sort through to the truth.

A solid 4.
5 stars for Murder at the Vicarage, the first novel in the Miss Marple cozy mystery series, written by Agatha Christie in 1930 I ve read ten novels by Christie and this one is near the top of the list for me From the characters to the setting and the plot to the tone, it s an intriguing and immersive read It started out a bit slow for me as the scene was being set, but once the murder happened, it took off in quick force I can happily say that I had 2 potential guesses as the culprit s , and I was correct which doesn t always happen I also knew there was way too much reference to time on clocks for it not to be important someone messed with the spinning needles to change the appearance of when the murde 7 12 21 2018 23 2018
