The Murder at the Vicarage
I recently read Agatha Christie’s The Murder at the Vicarage. It was only the second Agatha Christie novel I’ve read; the first being And Then There Were None. I don’t know how I missed the Agatha Christie stage when I was growing up, but I somehow never read one of her books until I was teaching high school English!
I thoroughly enjoyed this story, which was the first of the Miss Marple stories. I liked Miss Marple’s character and the vicar, who was the protagonist of the story. The plot was interesting and I couldn’t figure out who the murderer was! I felt like Ms. Christie was toying with me as a reader, because as soon as I thought I had figured out who the murderer was, new information came to light that disproved that theory.
