The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie – Book Review

This is another mystery by Agatha Christie featuring Hercule Poirot.  Roger Ackroyd is found murdered in his study.  Again, as with most Agatha Christie books, there are a number of suspects and red herrings.  Normally I cannot figure out the murderer until it is revealed.  This time around, I was able to figure it out but only about four or five pages before the big reveal.  I have not read a lot of books by this author (probably only about 4) but to date, this is my favorite.  I enjoyed the story line that Poirot had actually retired to a small village and was living a quiet life until his assistance was requested to solve this murder.

This book was required reading for a university class that I am taking this fall and I am very glad this was the Christie book that was picked as I found it quite enjoyable.The Murder of Roger Ackroyd
