I recently got into Agatha Christie and I adore the Poirot series. I love the formats in which Poirot is the annoying mentor, and you feel like he is trying to give you everything you need to solve the mystery yourself. This particular mystery was tough, and as always, Agatha Christie is way too smart for me and I was stumped, but once the antagonist was revealed it made perfect sense. There are a lot of murder mysteries where the author just tries to make the killer the most "unexpected" person just because, with poor logical reason for the motive. This is not the case here, it is a compelling mystery and Christie does a good job of getting the readers invested with not only the characters surrounding the mystery but also with Poirot.

The character relationships are complex and their personalities have the right amount of depth to where you are not weighed down by unnecessary details; rather, you have just enough detail to solve the mystery yourself if you use your "little grey cells", as Poirot puts it. Christie also creates a fantastic landscape and describes it in enough detail to allow you to immerse yourself in the environment. Her writing style is truly unique and I really appreciate her creativity as someone who loves murder mysteries. This was a lovely treat, and I can't wait to read the rest of her work in the Poirot collection.

I love most of Agatha Christie’s books. She draws me in and I feel like I really am in mud compound with several other people in the desert. I feel the stillness, even in today’s modern world. As for the story itself, she obviously drew very fully on the historical Katherine Woolley for the victim. The story is told from the point of view of Nurse Leatheren, brought on by Dr. Liedner to assist his wife, Louise, who’s been having fancies of seeing things, like a head floating in midair. Louise has a reputation of being a drama master. She doesn’t have disputes, she causes them. There’s also a Husband and wife team, the Mercado’s, and two people who’ve been coworkers with Dr. Liedner for years, Mr. Carey and Miss Johnson. Nurse soon settles in and determines Louise is the least nervous person in the world. But Louise is scared of something. She soon disclosed to Nurse that she’d been married before, but that her husband was dead. Or was he? She kept getting letters saying she shouldn’t ever get remarried, and now that she has it’s been sheer terror waiting to die. The next day, Louise is murdered. The only people who could have done it were the inmates of the compound, but all of them have alibis. Enter Poirot. Nurse is his Hastings in this story. Of course, there is the usual person who doesn’t tell what they know, and so die because of it. But Poirot knows who the killer is, of course. Not only is it the person I’d least suspected, but it’s the person that seemingly has the least reason to do so.

Overall, I love this book. I come back to it again and again, trying to spot the clues now that I know who did it. Alas, I’m no Poirot, so I always miss something.

Whatever you do, don't buy the Kindle edition until it's fixed. The present price of $3.79 is still too much for an edition that is, in its entirety, formatted to be centered. I kid you not. Even free, I wouldn't recommend it.

Is the story good? Heck yeah! It's Christie so of course it's wonderful. I would just recommend skipping the Kindle edition and buying the book itself instead. I took a screen cap so you can see what I mean. Also notice the chapter headings as Chapter_Heading_Here. UGH!

The success of the plot depends on whether you want to suspend your disbelief to the necessary extent, because the crime is so carefully structured and minutely timed that a few seconds' delay would ruin the killer's plan. The narrator is a nurse, at first an unwilling witness, which is unusual for a Christie novel, but she quickly displays her ability to observe and wastes no time to tell Poirot her discoveries. Poirot is less Belgian and with fewer idiosyncracies .than usual. All in all, this is not a classic example of an Agatha Christie mystery.l

In this day of video games, computers, and smartphones, Agatha Christie has reminded me of the value of putting all the tech down and getting wrapped up in a good book. The plot she has woven here rivals that of any other medium I’ve ever seen!

Yes it’s old fashioned, but it’s worth your time to read. Agatha Christie intrigues, tricks, and amazes!!!!

Slightly different approach on this Poirot mystery novel. Written in the personal view point of a nurse hired to help the wife of an archeologist who is acting strangely. We'll written of course by A . Christie with twists and turns we expect from Poirot mysteries, but the solution becomes a bit of a stretch even for Hercule, who qualifies his solution by admitting there is "no evidence". Still, reading any Agatha Christie mystery is a read worth reading and enjoying it.

In spite of some of its dated phrasing and odd historical references, Christie definitely had the knack of carving out a mystery from the sand and sun. Enjoy the skill with which Poirot turns all of the characters inside out.
If circumstances arise in which life seems to be throwing an especially large amount of manure my way, Ms. Christie never fails in adding a little ray of sunshine to a crappy state of affairs. Hercule Poirot's 13th adventure is only one of four in which I've guessed correctly on the solution. One aspect I've found engaging about reading the Poirot mysteries in the order in which the author wrote them is picking up little factoids about the Belgian's own history. The book is narrated through the eyes of a nurse, Amy Leatheran. Her disciplined personality lends well to the feel of the story. As usual, Ms. Christie shows her powers as a mystery writer by keeping the extraneous clues to a minimum and still leaving the reader in the dark. Her works are quite addictive despite Ms. Christie making me feel like an idiot. "Murder in Mesopotamia" is a wonderful, summer read for anyone looking to exercise their little grey cells.
