The Unexpected Guest by Agatha Christie

theunexpectedguestIt’s been a while since the last time I’ve read something from Agatha Christie and it’s always a delight when I get to read one.

The Unexpected Guest is a play written by Christie and was adapted into a novel by Charles Osborne. It’s not the typical Miss Marple stories but a mystery nonetheless from the queen of crime.

This is, however (if my memory serves me right), the first book I’ve read from the author where the culprit goes unpunished. And I think that’s okay. As I think about it now, weeks after I’ve finished reading it, I also wouldn’t want it to end any other way.

The story and the pace was gripping enough but the chase and thrill were missing plus I was able to guess who the culprit was early on but don’t let that put you off from reading this. I’ve probably read too much Christie books that’s why.

It’s a quick, one-sitting read so go for it.

Rating: 3.5/5 stars

Basically a breathing, moving, eating and happy-go-lucky homo sapiens. Full-time daydreamer and part-time paranoid. I love reading, I love Roger Federer, I love food.
