An Agatha Christie Mystery

Endless Night

Endless Night
By: Agatha Christie

Genre: Classic
Pages: 303

Published: 1968
Read: April

3 out of 5 stars

I have to be honest and say I would never have chosen to read an Agatha Christie book on my own. I read one only because my book club is reading Agatha Christie is month because we have an Agatha Christie “Mystery of Living” presenter coming to next meeting.  I opted to allow the members to read any Agatha Christie novel they wanted to.  I will say I was very pleasantly surprised with Endless Night.  Although it wasn’t “edge of your seat” suspense, I rather enjoyed the little mystery and writing style. I am entertained by books written from the point of view in which the narrator is actually writing the story then and there. I was able to figure out one of the mysteries; however there was a shocking element to the ending that was an interesting twist.  I was surprised that the “actual” mystery didn’t happen until the last third of the book, especially considering that when you read the summary for the novel you know a death occurs. I wonder if this is Christie’s typical fashion and will be asking Christie about this next week.
