Linnet Doyle is young, beautiful, and rich. She’s the girl who has everything–including the man her best friend loves. Linnet and her new husband take a cruise on the Nile, where they meet the brilliant detective Hercule Poirot. It should be an idyllic trip, yet Poirot has a vague, uneasy feeling that something is dangerously amiss.Hercule Poirot is perhaps Agatha Christie’s most interesting and endearing character; short, round, and slightly comical, Poirot has a razor-sharp mind and puts unlimited trust in his “little grey cells.” Those little cells come through for him every time, enabling Poirot to solve some of the most baffling mysteries ever conceived. In Death on the Nile, Poirot, on vacation in Africa, meets the rich, beautiful Linnet Doyle and her new husband, Simon. As usual, all is not as it seems between the newlyweds, and when Linnet is found murdered, Poirot must sort through a boatload of suspects to find the killer before he (or she) strikes again.

Wonderful characters and clever plot The story is classic Poirot and the plot intriguing. Although I don’t envy the reader, several of his voices were very nasal and hard to listen to. He also tends to taper off into softer speech from time to time. Since I listen in order to ease sleep, it’s annoying to have to raise the volume or repeat a passage I couldn’t hear.

Good Whodunit This is a good book. It’s datedness kept me from giving it more stars. I couldn’t really care about any of the characters. Hercule Poirot and his thinking held it all together. Otherwise it wouldn’t have deserved three stars.

EXCELLENT READ One of Agatha’s best! Egypt. The Nile. A river cruise. A savory stew of characters. The millionairess and her husband, ontheir honeymoon. The husband’s jilted girlfriend. The elderly dowager, who has more than a passing interest in the $50,000pearl necklace….belonging to the millionairess. Toss in the alcoholic female author of steamy sex books, her unhappydaughter, and the dowager’s unhappy personal maid……mix…stir….and……voilà! A very tasty read.
