Product Description

From Amazon

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. --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.

From Library Journal

Linnett Ridgeway has almost everything: youth, beauty, brains, and money. Then her best friend Jackie brings her handsome fianc?, Simon Doyle, to visit and asks Linnett to give him a job. Now Linnett and Simon are on their honeymoon, a cruise up the Nile. When Linnett is killed, Jackie is the obvious suspect, but she couldn't have done it. It seems like an insolvable crime, until the famous detective Hercule Poirot starts to investigate. Death on the Nile deserves its reputation as one of Christie's best travel mysteries. This recording is capably read by another familiar name, David Suchet, who is well known among both mystery and public TV buffs as the actor who played the role of Poirot in a series of television adaptations of the author's stories. Expect the trio of Christie, Poirot, and Suchet to be a popular patron selection. St. Mary's Mead was always a quiet English village, at least until the body of Colonel Protheroe was found in the vicarage library. No one liked the murdered man. His first wife had abandoned him, and their teenage daughter kept out of his way. His much younger, second wife had recently fallen in love with a charming portrait painter. The list of possible suspects seems endless. Two different people confess to the murder. Did either do it? Enter Miss Marple, an elderly maiden lady whose gentle manners conceal an extensive knowledge of human depravity and exceptional deductive abilities. She flutters around, asks questions, and solves the crime. But it is the writing, not the plots, that keeps Christie fans coming back. James Saxon gives a clear, competent reading in Murder at the Vicarage, although initially his voice strikes one as brighter and sharper than one would expect from the gentle, scholarly rector. Eighty-odd years after her first book was published, Christie and her mysteries are more popular than ever. Both programs are recommended for all collections. I.

Linnet Ridgeway has everything a woman longs for: beauty, money, brains, and is one of the richest girls in England. When her best friend Jaqueline de Bellefort brings her husband-to-be: Simon Doyle, Linnet takes him too. Linnet and Simon Doyle then travel to Egypt for their honeymoon, only with a mad Jaqueline practically stalking everywhere they go. Abroad the ship Karnak they go, with Jaqueline following as well.
Then, when Linnet is found dead shot through her head, (and with Jakie's initial written with blood on the wall) of course de Bellefort is the first suspected. Luckily, Poirot is also onboard Karnak, and so it is up to him to solve this mystery.
As always, Christie's novels has a lot of twists, and some clues were not given till the end, which makes it extremely hard to solve. But I still liked the book because it is very cleverly written and I was very curious as to who killed Linnet Ridgeway (and some other people). I liked this book a lot, and I totally recommend it to anybody who wants a book that keeps you turning pages and working your brains at the same time.

I recently read "Death on the Nile", by Agatha Christie, and the book left me astonished. The ingenious crafting of murder was impressive and the end, as usual, in her books, a complete mystery. It was a pleasure from the beginning to the end. A story of intrigue and romance, of money and passion, and of course, of murder had me reading it in one sittting. Linnet Ridgeway, a beautiful and very wealthy heiress, has everything. And what she doesn't have she obtains. Her best friend, Jackie De Belleforte longs for everything Linnet has. And when she introduces her new fiancé Simon to Linnet, Linnet takes that too. Simon and Linnet are married and go on a honeymoon to Egypt, only to find Jackie following them wherever they go. They are quite displeased with the way she demonstrates her anger. But as a number of mysterious accidents begin to happen, the famous detective Hercule Poirot is ready for them. One night, Linnet is murdered, and the most likely person, Jackie, has an alibi confirmed by five people. But who could have killed Linnet? And why? That I leave to the eager readers, but I extremely enjoyed this, and as all Christie books, this is a true mystery. I am glad I read this, and it is very interesting. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys mysteries.

Are you are in the mood for a thrilling book that you won't want to put down? Then I strongly recommend Death on the Nile, written by Agatha Christie, the best-selling author for mysteries. It was one of the most suspenseful stories I have ever read.
Linnet Ridgeway, the victim, is wealthy, young, and beautiful. She is used to having her way, so when she falls in love with her best friend Jackie's fiancé (named Simon), trouble is in the air. Simon soon realizes that he loves Linnet more than Jackie, and marries her instead.
On their honeymoon, a cruise on the Nile, Jackie is on board, and ready for revenge. So when Linnet is found dead in her bed one morning, it is obvious who did it. But it was impossible for Jackie to have killed her, since she had people with her the entire night. Hercule Poirot, the detective, has to find the answers to several questions to solve this mystery. Did an attempted murder that occurred earlier have anything to do with this one? Why did the murderer throw something overboard? Why is Linnet's business guardian so secretive about the forms he wants her to sign? Do Linnet's missing pearls have anything to do with it? He must use his intelligence, intuition, and interviewing skills to solve the crime. Can he prove who did it?
This book was a little slow-moving before the murder was committed, but I liked it because of its challenging reading level, the exciting storyline, and the surprise ending.
