Review of A Murder Is Announced By Agatha Christie

                      A MURDER IS ANNOUNCED

                                                    AUTHOR:AGATHA CHRISTIE
                                                     GENRE:CRIME FICTION


AGATHA CHRISTIE IS KNOWN THROUGHOUT THE WORLD AS QUEEN OF CRIME.
A TITLE SHE RIGHTLY DESERVES. 

BUT FRANKLY SAYING, 'A MURDER IS ANNOUNCED' DISSAPOINTED ME. 

 IT IS ONE OF THE BOOKS YOU WILL LIKE IF YOU READ IT AGAIN AND AGAIN.

'MISS MARPLE' THE DETECTIVE DOESN'T GET MUCH ROLE IN THE BOOK ALTHOUGH SHE IS THE ONE WHO SOLVES THE CASE AT THE END. 
THE MODE OF NARRATION IS QUITE DRY ALTHOUGH THE PLOT IS A GOOD ONE.

CLEARLY THIS IS NOT ONE OF HER BEST WORKS.

A MURDER IS ANNOUNCED IN  THE NEWSPAPER. THIS GAME IS SUPPOSED TO TAKE PLACE IN LETITIA BLACKLOCKS HOUSE
. BUT THINGS GO HORRIBLY WRONG WHEN WHAT STARTED OUT AS A MURDER GAME, SOON TURNS OUT TO BE A REAL MURDER.
THE POLICE ARRIVE AT THE SCENE BUT IS BAFFLED BY THE CASE AND FINALLY THEY TOOK MISS MARPLE'S HELP TO SOLVE THE CASE.AND SHE SOLVES It.

SO HERE IS THE BLURB

The Queen of Mystery has come to Harper Collins! Agatha Christie, the acknowledged mistress of suspense—creator of indomitable sleuth Miss Marple, meticulous Belgian detective Hercule Poirot, and so many other unforgettable characters—brings her entire oeuvre of ingenious whodunits, locked room mysteries, and perplexing puzzles to Harper Paperbacks. A Murder is Announced in a small town newspaper advertisement—and Miss Marple must unravel the fiendish puzzle when a crime does indeed occur.

IT IS NOT A GREAT BOOK. BUT IF YOU ARE A DIEHARD AGATHA CHRISTIE FAN YOU MAY READ IT.
I ONLY CAME TO LIKE IT ONLY AFTER I READ IT TWO OR THREE TIMES. SO, YOU MAY TAKE YOUR OWN TIME.

RATING : 3/5.
