After the Funeral by Agatha Christie (review by Daphne Y. ’16)

After the FuneralAfter the Funeral by Agatha Christie
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The queen of mystery sets the scene after the death of Richard Abernethie. His sister, Cora, suggests that he was murdered, and she is found dead as well in her room the next day. Thus, Hercule Poirot is called upon to tie the strings together. Although the characterization is very detailed and the ending satisfactory, this book was boring in the sense that Christie’s descriptions of the various suspects and settings seemed long without actually getting anywhere. Evidence does not appear until the end of the book. It is a nice story overall, but recommended only to fans who really enjoy mystery, because to the average reader, the endless paragraphs of vague plot may not seem so appealing. – Daphne Y. ’16
