Daily Mail

“Must be read twice, once for enjoyment and once to see how the wheels go round.” The Times

“The main alibi is of the first brilliance … the descriptive work hits, as it were, the Nile on the head.” Observer

“A peach of a case for Poirot. I take my hat off to the author for as ingenious an alibi as can well be imagined.” Sunday Times

Death On the Nile was the first Agatha Christie book I read and I immediately became a fan. Christie shows a love for Egyptian culture and history and you'll never be able to work out the solution- it's surprising yet at the same time a convincing piece of work.
If you haven't read Christie before, this is a good book to start you off as it boasts Poirot's (and Christie's) unique genius.

So I booked a winter holiday next year in Egypt which will include a cruise on the Nile. How then could I not read the book in advance? Well the Kindle edition was fascinating but the audiobook - wow! I have, for some while, been listening to Sir Terry Pratchett's Discworld series read by Tony Robinson and they have set a very high standard but, considering the age of this story, I think that David Suchet gives a most entertaining read - even the english Colonel speaks with a beautiful 'Jonathan Woss' lisp!
I am disabled and so like to take a flask of coffee and park my car up on the moor, sit back and listen. A great afternoon break.
I shall be purchasing more Agatha Christie audiobooks.

Death on the Nile is one of the best Agatha Christie's ever - and has been presented in a variety of formats, and this is one of the most enjoyable. David Suchet (Poirot himself from the rather fabulous television series) reads the tale of murder and mayhem in Egypt with a flair and humour which is engaging and thoroughly entertaining. Even though you may be very familiar with the story, Suchet's reading gives added dimensions to Christie's characters, and allows characters to speak for themselves, as it were.

The only reason I did not give 5 stars was that his vocalisation of Colonel Race tended to grate on my ear after a while, but it is a small complaint for such an enjoyable audio book.

What can I say, it's a classic Poirot tale! I loved the film and when I saw the book on offer I jumped at the chance and downloaded. Even though I knew who dunnit it was great to read the more in depth story that a film doesn't portray

This is one of my favourite Poirot movie mysteries and so you might wonder why I'd read the book after the seeing the tv movie so many times, well I guess it was a kind of test to myself, to see if I could spot the clues along the way and work out how it was done but with the addition of a little hindsight if you like.  Well, if I hadn't have seen the movie previously, I never would have worked it out, the clues are very subtle! It would seem I'm pretty rubbish at working out the murderers.
As I've come to expect from a Christie novel, there are plenty of red herrings and drama in this book, which is essentially a locked room mystery given that there's not an infinite number of suspects.  It moves at a good pace although there's a lot more build up in the first half of the book which leaves the remainder to solve "the rest".  It's obviously very of its time, quintessentially British and behind the times but regular Christie readers will know that's what her books were like.
There are some differences between the book and the tv adaptation with Peter Ustinov and Simon MacCorkindale that I love to watch every time its on with some significant character changes but for the most part the plots are the same.  However, I did prefer the ending that featured in this movie.

I thought this book really showed what love can make people do and how coldhearted people can be. It also shows what people will do for money. Altogether, I found this a great book!
