Agatha Christie is one of the best detective novel writer. I used this novel for a university homework.

This is one of my favourite Hercule Poirot stories from Agatha Christie. The writing is of its time, and seems quaint by todays standards, but Agatha Christie is one of the great authors who could write a mystery that really kept you involved. Very well done.

Death on the Nile is a great whodunit, that literally kept me guessing to the very last page. Being a huge Egypt buff, this book gave me a very nice sense of a boat ride down the magnificent Nile to see some of Egypt's spectacular sites. It's a fun read from a bygone era, with lively characters, an intricately presented plot, and the charming detective Hercule Poirot. It's an entertaining story, but it also is a very sharp commentary on people, their motivations, and social norms. Though the book is from an earlier era, so much of the human struggles, interactions, hopes, dreams, beliefs, misguided notions, and foibles ring true today. Agatha Christie takes her time in unveiling the truth of the crimes, leaving clues scattered about, and ensures that her full hand is not shown until the very end. A most worthwhile read!

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 would have given this book 3 stars, but I must admit I was quite curious to find out the killer's identity.
I love a good mystery, but my problem with this book (& I am not a devoted Agatha Christie fan, prior to this I read a book of her short stories, and don't feel terribly inclined to read anymore of her work) is that after the murder takes place, the sluething is done by merely interviewing the cast of character's again & again- there wasn't any suspenseful poking around, or edge of the seat moments where you're sure the inspector is going to get caught uncovering clues- it was just a bunch of conversations. I practically needed a chart to keep track of all of the character's.
So, if you like your mysteries filled with drawing room chatter & not a lot of physical movement/uncovering- I highly recommend this- if you like more suspense, turn to Ruth Rendell or Patricia Carlon.

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.

Jacqueline de Bellefort calls on her old friend Linnet Ridgway to tell her that she is engaged to marry a man named Simon Doyle. Linnet seems to be happy for her friend, but she soon meets Simon and woos him away from Jackie. Simon and Linnet marry and go on a honeymoon to Egypt, but they are stalked by Jackie wherever they go. Soon Linnet is killed and Jackie is an obvious suspect. She has an airtight alibi, and Hercule Poirot has his hands full, trying to find the real killer. There are other suspects, as Linnet was a very wealthy woman and there are many who would like to get their hands on her fortune. Poirot works his magic and, by keen observation and a very logical mind, he is able to unravel the mystery. This is a beautifully constructed book and is Agatha Christie at her finest.
