Ordeal by Innocence

Nuori Jack Argyle on saanut elinkautisen vankeustuomion Oikeudenkäynnissä on osoitettu että hän on surmannut äitinsä hiilihangolla Puolen vuoden vankilass. This Review Blog Twitter Instagram Justice is after all in the hands of men and men are fallible It is no big secret that I am such a fan of Agatha Christie and I pick up one of her books whenever I am in the mood for a good mystery thriller from an author I trust I have been reading much fantasy lately I read exactly 20 consecutive fantasy books before I decided to take a break and read something different I am glad I did because Agatha did not disappoint once againThis is my 11th book by the author so I still have a long way to go with her books but it is also a good thing because I still have much to explore I picked this one on a whim while browsing the mystery section at the local bookstore I just read pneumonia and Doctor in the synopsis and was immediately sold It was actually different from what I expected and it was not a medical story The plot is basically that a guy who has died in prison from pneumonia is cleared by an alibi one year after his death That means the case is opened again and all the family are suspected once again as they have motivesSome authors write good characters but Agatha write real people I don t just read her books I live in them I am also fascinated by the fact that they were written decades ago this one was written 60 years ago and I am still astonished by the technology and stuff that were available back then There is usually a formula to Christie s novels and some people don t like it but I actually love it How can I go on living here and suspecting everybody The writing in this one was as good as I am used to I just love how simple straight to the point her novels are This novel is less than 300 pages with all the elements for a good novel contained within Another thing I like is that the language used is not as complicated as in classics but still different from the way we speak today The dialogue and the way people act is actually not that different after one century from her first novels Agatha is also not the kind of author who will hold back from speaking her mind in her novels and I just adore that she described men and women in such a fascinating way throughout this novel once even comparing mothers to cats and their kittens Men they never think That s what you might call the normal pattern of female life I ve seen many girls and women with strong maternal instincts keen on getting married but mainly though they mayn t uite know it themselves because of their urge to motherhood And the babies come they re happy and satisfied Life goes back into proportion for them They can take an interest in their husbands and in the local affairs and in the gossip that s going round and of course in their children But it s all in proportion The maternal instinct in a purely physical sense is satisfied you see The plot was interesting and it is the kind of books I want to consume very fast just to know who done it I love some family drama and the dynamics in this book were pretty fucked up as shown at the beginning of the story when Jacko s innocence is announced and the family does not take the news happily The funny thing is that Agatha managed to wrap every thing up and end the book on a comical way after all the dark things the family went throughSummary As good as Agatha s other books if you are a fan and haven t read this one then you probably should and if you haven t tried her books then what are you doing in your life Just kidding but check out her books seriously I plan to continue exploring everything she has writtenYou can get books from Book Depository

Aolon jälkeen Jack kuolee keuhkokuumeeseen Argylen perhettä painanut raskas taakka on poissa – kunnes kuvaan ilmaantuu tuntematon tohtori CalgaryCalgary tod. EXCERPT Calgary came to the end of the nice new road with the nice new houses on either side of it each with its eighth of an acre of garden rock plants chrysanthemums roses salvias geraniums each owner displaying his or her individual garden tasteAt the end of the road was a gate with SUNNY POINT in Gothic letters on it He opened the gate passed through and went along a short drive The house was there ahead of him a well built characterless modern house gabled and porched It might have stood on any good class suburban site or a new development anywhere It was unworthy in Calgary s opinion of its view For the view was magnificent The river here curved sharply round the point almost turning back on itself Wooded hills rose opposite upstream to the left was a further bend in the river with meadows and orchards in the distance Calgary looked for a moment up and down the river One should have built a castle here he thought an impossible ridiculous fairy tale castle The sort of castle that might be made of gingerbread or frosted sugar Instead there was good taste restraint moderation plenty of money and absolutely no imagination For that naturally one did not blame the Argyles They had only bought the house not built it Stillthey or one of them Mrs Argyle had chosen itHe said to himself You can t put it off any longer and pressed the electric bell beside the door ABOUT THIS BOOK Recovering from amnesia Dr Arthur Calgary discovers that he alone could have provided an alibi in a scandalous murder trial It ended in the conviction of Jacko Argyle The victim was Jacko s own mother and to make matters worse he died in prison But the young man s innocence means that someone else killed the Argyle matriarch and would certainly kill again to remain in the shadows Shaded in the moral ambiguity of murder the provocative psychological puzzler of guilt vengeance and blood secrets is among Agatha Christie s personal favoritesMY THOUGHTS I was excited to discover I thought a Christie that I hadn t previously read But once I got into it I realized that I had previously read it and had also seen the TV adaptation and a very good one it was too But not to worry as I couldn t remember whodunit So I got to read and enjoy this stand alone mystery all over again And to be wrong all over again about just who the murderer was A delightful murder mysteryTHE AUTHOR Agatha

    You really have to admire 1950s for their marvelous plot devices Amnesiacs mistaken identities and in this mystery by Agatha Christie a man with a concussion fails to provide an alibi and shortly after recovering heads off to Antarctica for a research expedition Barring that somewhat awkward premise Ordeal was an interesting psychological mystery that kept me engaged Dr Calgary the Antarctic research scientist discovers through old newsp
