Review: The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie (Spoiler-Free)

The queen of mystery never lets me down. This is my fifth Christie novel and I have yet to read one I did not enjoy. Her characters are always entertaining and keep the pages turning even when they are dialogue-heavy. The choice of narrator for this novel is incredibly clever and I found myself especially charmed by his sister. Buried under curiosity and scandal-mongering there is a lot of kindness in Caroline. I love how gossip is portrayed as a strength (even if the male narrator doesn't view it that way) and plays an integral part in unraveling the case. Can't wait to watch the TV adaptation! (David Suchet, of course.)
