It was a very ambitious work in terms of the cleverness of the whole work

There was a discussion of whether it was fair or unfair
I started reading with the unexpected culprit heard, so the culprit is not the most doubtful?
There was a strange constitution that could not be a problem even if the culprit hit the hypnotic intuition what it was saying It was not good as a trick or a story but it was impressed with the trick itself already described Christie's work Although I read some representative works, every work has overflowed ideas and none of the plot settings is excellent

It is notable in the unexpectedness of the criminal. It is a work that was known also in the way that the storytelling division does not talk about everything and secretly and the truth behind which the statement touched it today and there are both pros and cons. Although it is famous as a masterpiece of a narrative trick such as making a blank time for criminal acts, although somewhat becoming obsolete at present, this is one factor that makes fame as a pioneer of Christie still undiminished It can also be seen (although skillfully it is fairly ..).

That is why I am now aware that it is a more conspicuous work by historical added value as a deductive material and subsequent influences using similar type tricks rather than content. Just because of that, about freshness is no longer so much.

Personally, the depiction that characters appeared in Mahjong was impressive. I was well aware that Oriental culture was somewhat interested, but how did you learn it in the background? Especially pronunciation when squeaking was a bit fresh and good (laugh)

[good point]
It is somewhat better than the author's "curtain"

[Bad point]
In the first place, the story, novel, fiction, does not make body

[Comprehensive evaluation]
Mystery = Trick.
It's not just a literary masterpiece masterpiece known as a masterpiece of less than literature (it is not a trick that the criminal puts on wisdom by nothing but a trick of the author) at the same time that only gimmick passed.

I will be badly criticized because of anti-Christie, but if this is the best masterpiece of Agatha, it will not bad, as the world famous self-proclaimed large writers will overflow.
At least, if you self-name Agatha fans you should critique after comparing it with a masterpiece behind like "Trampling in high tide" ... Nobody has read it (lol

Well, if you think that this work is the original story of 'Portopia serial murder case', gamers will be convinced ... 'And anyone ...' was the original story of a certain "Kamaitachi no Yoru" Well (lol Free software's masterpiece "Kamaitachi .... Purgil" is Pakuri of "A Doom Dorf Murder Case" ....... It was not agatha, excuse me.

I dare to criticize himself, but the mystery writer Agatha. It is the Muhahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh the old worth of the Christians is defeating (and its enormous royalties worldwide) It is now and still unchanged in the 21st century that it has been transferred to the Agatha Foundation, which is staggering ... despite being good, it is also a major financial resource of Hayakawa).

If you read Carter Dixon's "Death as a lady" of this work as a main part collection work of this work, you can understand the fact that this work does not form the body of the story at all.
However, comparing a rare storyteller car with just a gimmick writer Agatha would be a bad luck ...

Sometimes I want to make aggressive criticism ... I'm somewhat doubtful whether or not I am making a body of criticism.

Having a sunny eye on minor depicting tricks.

[Bad point]
Spoil yourself with painful predicates. It has a hard work for Tsukkomi attributes.

[Comprehensive evaluation]
"bad". It is ugly whether tricks say irregularities. I think that I can evaluate it if I can better write it better. I feel that there is a problem with Christie's style which will open up the eyes in logic holes and expand the characters in the logic hole. By the way,
Christy is not the first challenge for the trick of killing the acroid.
There is no doubt about the first author who was read the most, but I think that the process is masculine.
Even as a character, there is no appeal of Poirot's detective statue. I am ideal as I am Leblanc, Mason, Chesterton.
First reading was a third grader in elementary school, but I read detective novels on the deductive reasoning route, so we can guess the story and culprit quickly, it is disappointing
(To be accurate, the criminal's reasoning from the sentence is impossible,
Surely it's unnatural development ... anyway it's Christie,
I immediately noticed).
Christie's work for himself, the vigor of travelers, the image of the criminal who takes considerable risk due to tricks is attractive "to die in Nile"
I can not evaluate anything.

〓〓〓I also read "I am on a high tide" at similar times ...

Recently the information is overflowing, and even classic masterpiece even before reading it I knew tricks ... Gackish ... There are many things.
I am a big mystery fan and I love classics, but in particular, Mr. Christy is a writer who likes especially good balance of mystery and literary romance.
Many of the works that are regarded as masterpieces of Ms. history are also pretty much pretty stuff well ...

But this was different. I did not even know the mystery mystery yet I read for the first time, when I was small 6 when I did not read Doyle. I knew it. The taste of catharsis that can never be imitated in the video work of character media!

It was a very good fortune to have met this work in a straight condition. Not only a novel but also a mystery in animation and manga, I think that the aesthetic attitudes of people are becoming severe because genre works are overflowing, but I will challenge beginners who are interested in mystery early I want to get it.

I like to appreciate it as a work that has decided on the preference of novels, mystery likes, and then "best".

I do not like it because I do not have aftertaste, but it's a classic.
Since I like mystery with tricks,
I would like to go "ordinary" considering them.

If you are recommending Christi to a person, you will probably say that you should read this.
As Christie's works do not sell extra precious tricks,
I think that it will go for those who can enjoy the work of this hand.

You can only tell me to read it anyway. Finally when you do not agree,
Elli. I do not think queen or something is good.

It was a revolutionary trick at that time, which was a controversial argument,
Certainly it is a cowardly trick if you make readers' mystery as the definition of mystery.
However, there is no cowardly or shit in the real mystery,
There should be no problem as long as logical consistency is maintained there.
In any case, Agatha set a frame in the mystery which was stuck at that time,
It can be said that it played a role of widening widely.
If you read it, it seems that you do not need to put it in the box according to the mystery.
Even though it is said that it did not become famous by providing the material,
It is probably why this book became famous that wrote a highly completed novel using its excellent writing power.
I guess this will be only about Agatha.

I am writing a letter as a way of writing (taking a sentence from letters and it's pretty painful setting).
In this it is unknown whether this person is ahead.
Either way, it was a setting that works well in this novel.

"Definitely good"

I read it without knowing the previous reputation, so it was a shock when I read it for the first time.
Since I was a junior high school student at the time I first read it, I did not have any information sources ...
It was just a shock. You better read without buying information.
When reading a book, it is easy to read if you empathize, but then ....

The scene of the confession of the criminal remembers the fact that the back muscles all the time longer than reading the horrible murder scene.
Now there are various mystery novels of innovative tricks,
Although this trick will be felt classically,
The thing which I first thought is worthy of respect.

I laughed at Poirot who threw a squirrel well and threw it to my neighbor.
(I really do not want such a person)

For the first time I learned this trick was with a drama starring Ota Oko who was doing on Saturday's daytime.
Well, sorry. I can not remember the title.
Anyway, the moment I knew the truth, it was already intense. It is exaggerated that Helen Keller said similar shock that water could be recognized as "water", but it is close to that (laugh).
"Shit! ~ Damn it! Chikusho ~! It has been done!" After dancing, I felt excited and I could not sleep on that day (〓〓〓idiot).
So, the impression of this drama is considerably stronger than "Akuroid" I learned after reading.

Because of that, I think that this trick is more suitable for images than the novel. I can not write it well, but if it is sentences as compared to the picture, I feel that the secret is inevitably more for readers. I can see that there are many people who do not admit that trick in that novel.
Many authors should be publishing works using this trick (famous is Mr. Masashi Yokomizo's middle version?), But my favorite is a short story with Mr. Ryouzo Sanzo. Camouflage was very skillful and was supposed to be wonderfully supposed to have been wary enough. I think that this work is also above the "acroid" if it is only a story.

Before reading "Acroid", it is true that it was not possible to enjoy because it knew various reputation and contents. It was wonderful to find that trick, but when I excluded it, I felt it a little bit tedious. If this was the way ahead ... evaluation may have changed a lot.

The story is also like a masterpiece called masterpiece, but I think that the best standard is trick.
This story is evaluated as the first thing that used a breakthrough trick,
No matter how hard I try my best, I would like to evaluate historically in terms of being a pioneer work in a translation that is second to none.
(History was said to be great.

Comment is quite difficult because it is a work that can be said to be a prominent classic as a mystery too. Although I seemed to be turning over the cabbage. No, I guess I knew the story first. Well, since I just read it as a junior high school student, I read it now, but it may be a different sentiment.
