Review: At Bertram's Hotel by Agatha Christie (Spoiler-Free)

The ingenuity of the young female of the species is beyond anything you could conjecture!


so true ms. christie.


I always enjoy Agatha Christie, and while this certainly was not my favorite I've read of hers, it was still pleasantly entertaining. I didn't think the ending was as satisfying or came as full circle as others, but I enjoyed getting to know Ms. Marple (this is my first Ms. Marple book!), and I also liked the hotel setting.


This book is super short so there's really not much to say-- it's a classic Christie but doesn't particularly stand out. If you've read a ton of Christie and you are struggling to find ones you haven't read then I'd say there's no reason not to give this one a try, but if you haven't read Christie before I'd definitely recommend starting with And Then There Were None or Death on the Nile (my personal favorite!) instead.


I'm excited to expand my Christie collection (this was one of a few 70s pocket editions I ordered), and eagerly await reading more of her work.
