Moreover, the masterpiece that Milne's name remains this one work on the mystery history.
It falls in daytime of the hot summer, the elder brother who visited a red pavilion after an interval of 15 years is killed, and the master in the house has disappeared.
Two amateur detectives or a witty flavor and specialist who puts it out are the tastes of the caviare by which the man of the world values a clever trick of putting out highly, and the criticized reasons.

A classic masterpiece famous even that it was mentioned as a spearball when the hard-boiled thing master, Chandler later developed the criticism of the realistic mystery.
Author Alan A. Alexander Milne is famous worldwide as the author of the fairy tale "Pooh Pooh", but this work is the only mistake he himself who loved the mystery novel.

[good point]
British pastoral style. Even though there is murder, it is never bloody.
To that extent, there is a flat and flat impression, but works that make you feel very conscience.
Reliable sense and solidness seen in orthodox detectives and assistants.
Although it is a classic work and no new taste, it is a very orthodox guess.

[Bad point]
To the reader who can not enjoy the "good points" above, it becomes "a bad point" as it is.

[Comprehensive evaluation]
It will be reflected in a boring work in a direction that likes a flashy mystery.
However, for the reader who can enjoy the good old taste of British mystery such as solid detective work by a detective, a humorous conversation with the role of Watson during that time, a little exciting adventure, polite situation / landscape depiction Recommended works.
Personally because it is a UK classic favor, evaluation is "good".

[good point]
Should I say British? With a peaceful and careful scenery portrayal,
A hero of a loved favorite and an amateur detective adventuristically adventurous.
Even if there is no strong character or a strong character, hypotheses and experiments,
The truth which is elucidated through verification is a classic and ornate dignity as a deductible. On the other hand, the calm atmosphere that goes through the plain style and full story that can be read without shoulder elbow stretching is not quite what you see in the "murder case".

[Bad point]
Although the "good point" is reversed, it is a boring work for the reader who asks for access to "murder".

[Comprehensive evaluation]
"Good +". Very easy to read, but trick ... amateur detective.
At the same time as suppressing the standard of adventure and deductive things, it is a rarity atmosphere deductible that is never pressed. The mysterious portrayal mystery seems to be a British work. I think that there are few opportunities to read British humorous work in Japan, but "Bright British literature" side by side with "Boat 3 Man"
A masterpiece embodying. Recommendation.

It is commonly said that the UK is a classic masterpiece of the stage ... ....
Only one person was killed in the beginning, but it was nice to have been able to read without so much boring.
When thinking from the current viewpoint, it seems that there is not such unexpectedness in the truth itself,
The idyllic atmosphere that drifted in the full story was a lot of fun.

Especially interesting was the detective buddy dive in the pond to explore the mystery.
I think that the conversation between these two people is humorous, and the style which is not heavy is highly appreciated.
