And you’re so frightfully good at doing the right thing.’Linnet laughed.‘Why, I haven’t got an enemy in the world!’”Linnet Doyle is on her honeymoon in Egypt with the husband she recently stole from one of her best friends.

It is 1937 and Cairo is still considered a jewel of a city to rival Paris. The rich and famous flock there to enjoy her night life and cruise the Nile to see the pyramids. Such is the backdrop for Dame Agatha Christie's Death on the Nile starring Hercule Poirot. As in many of Poirot's cases, this mystery features a young heiress, multiple motives for murder, and criminals traveling under assumed names. All these facets add up to a fun, page turning whodunit. Upon turning twenty one, Linnet Ridge [...]
Book Review4+ out of 5 stars for Death on the Nile, a Hercule Poirot mystery published in 1937 by Agatha Christie. This is one of Christie's better mysteries, not because of the complexity in the mystery but due to the characters she creates. No one is who they appear to be on this ship, and they are all trapped together. It's nearly 100 years ago, so how could anyone get on or off the boat without the Captain or the rest of the staff in the know? (No, I'm not giving away a spoiler). Poirot is o [...]
Hopefully I am not committing any heretical thoughtcrime here, but am I the only one who thinks Hercule Poirot comes across as a bit of a doucheapotamus . Between the accent, the arrogance and the jabbing his butt into everyone’s business, he reminded of a cross between nosey neighbor Gladys Kravitz and everyone's favorite rapist, Pepe Le Pew. Now before you get the cheese grater and the lemon juice out for me, let me say that this is my first Agatha Christie novel and my first experience with [...]
A friend told me who the murderer was, so I was not surprized when the killer was discovered.I never talked to this friend again
This is only the second time that I read Death on the Nile. I remember the sublime subterfuge of the guilty party, but thought there were only two deaths in the book. In fact there are five deaths and the book has a quite hectic pace.Hercule Poirot refers to previous cases once or twice. In Murder of the Orient Express he absolved the guilty completely. In Death on the Nile, he regrets bringing the murderer to justice, but carries out this task still.The boat on the Nile houses many other charac [...]
Choose Your Own Adventure!You are a poor sap who loves an English rose, a jewel of society, a gateway to fortune and romance. Together you travel the exotic Nile, surrounded by jealousy and greed and yearned-for vengeance, each of your fellow passengers a bizarre and unsettling caricature, each one morbidly following your every move. Murder strikes – not once, not twice, but thrice! The situation becomes quite unbearable, and made worse by the attentions of a notorious Belgian muckraker. How d [...]
Linnet Ridgeway was an extremely wealthy young woman who had everything she had ever wanted; everything everyone else would have liked – but she didn’t have love. So when she married Simon, who had been engaged to one of Linnet’s closest friends, there was a good deal of animosity. While on their honeymoon, they were on the S.S. Karnak, slowly cruising up the Nile River; stopping to view the pyramids and other exotic tourist destinations. They were accompanied by a varied group of people a [...]
This is a really good one from Christie. It has all the ingredients of a great story. I wish they had done this plot as a film instead of the too-many-times filmed 'Murder on the Orient Express'.
Death on the Nile has to be one of my favourite books by Agatha Christie. I've read most of her books and I never get tiered of re-reading them :)There's something specially dark about this book and I happen to like it.As usual the characters are multi-dimensional and quite weird and scandalous lol. EVERYONE has a motive and an opportunity, anyone could've done it but I can never guess the right person with Agatha :)Very enjoyable and highly recommended.

Aside from a few awkward (racist) sayings this book is as fresh and topical today as it was when it was written in 1937. I am sure I read this in the past but its plot had faded away probably replaced in my mind shanty by the theme song to the New Zoo Review which for some reason I can't get out of my head.At any rate this book begins as many of Ms. Christie's do, setting the stage by introducing us the the victims and suspects. We have a ridiculously rich young American girl living in her newly [...]

I can see why people don't appreciate the Nile much equally to other famous Christie's novels: The Oriental Express or And Then There We're None, still I love the way the story unfold itself. The crime is also humanly touching, practical and realistic. There's also the elements such as atmosphere, the journey to the Nile, and old-fashioned who-dun-it crime scene in the transitional place (boat, and reminding of the old day's the train express) which can be variously interpreted, for such, the pl [...]
Re-read 01.09.2017 From 3 to 4 stars.The first book I read from Christie was The Big Four (1927), but starting from that was a huge mistake, because it's vastly different from the usual Poirots. Luckily, Death on the Nile was next in line, and it confirmed once and for all that my time wouldn't be misspent reading Christie, just like it wasn't misspent watching the television adaptations for a long time before I moved on to her books.The plot of Death on the Nile is the only one I can remember v [...]
A typical Poirot mystery.Rich heiress, impoverished friend, a couple of suitors, acquaintances with straightened circumstances.Heiress snatches her impoverished friend's fiance and they are off on a honeymoon cruise over the Nile. The outraged jilted lady friend, Poirot, a couple old ladies, a couple of young ladies, a few mysterious men - are put together in the cruise. What follows is a medley of intrigue, quarrel, theft, murder and mayhem. Was an enjoyable read.
Bu kitapla birlikte 2017 Reading Challenge'ımı tamamlamış oldum, buna seviniyorum ama en çok da kitapta, katili erkenden tahmin edebildiğime seviniyorum :) Bu okuduğum 2. Agatha Christie kitabıydı. Belki onun kurgularına çabuk adapte oldum, belki de bu kez şansım yaver gitti bilemiyorum; bunu ilerleyen zamanlarda daha net anlayabileceğim. Emin olduğum şey, Agatha okumaktan yine oldukça keyif aldığım. Akıllıca bir kurguydu. Sürükleyiciydi de. Tavsiye ediyorum. Mutlu Noelle [...]
“That is why most great love stories are tragedies.” ― Agatha Christie, Death on the NileDeath on the Nile is one of Christie’s most popular mysteries, also made into a popular movie with Peter Ustinov as the amusingly arrogant egg-head Belgian Poirot, who apparently never gets to take a real vaca, meeting murder in every boat and train on which he travels. This one is also one of Christie’s favorites, as she writes in an introduction to my edition. And the writing is a bit more polish [...]
Many years since I've read an Agatha Christie mystery, you tend to forget what a great writer she was. This vintage mystery features the wonderful Hercule Poirot. Loved the exotic location, most of the action takes place on board a boat travelling down the Nile. The mystery component of the novel kept you guessing right up to the end which is always a big plus. Well drawn characters and an engaging plot, time and money well spent.
This is my second most favourite Agatha Christie story among all of her stories.Linnet Doyle is youthful, excellent, and rich. She's the young lady who has everything—including the man her closest companion adores. Linnet and her new spouse take a voyage on the Nile, where they meet the splendid investigator Hercule Poirot.“A man doesn't wasnt to feel that a woman cares more for him than he cares for her. He doesn't want to feel owned, body and soul. It's that damned possessive attitude. Thi [...]
I have not read all of that many HP stories, but I think this is my favorite mystery so far. I am looking forward to more of them. Although he is retired and taking a vacation cruise on the Nile, he still ends up in charge of a murder and more mystery than he could shake a stick at. Was it only a matter of time?A great cast of nice and not so nice characters, typical of Agatha Christie. The timing of events and how they played out - wonderful!
Agatha Christie had a romantic streak, which you can see in most of her books, where an unlikely couple is brought together either by the interference of Poirot or Miss Marple. This happened several times in this book but as I learned during this re-read, there's nothing she loves more than to subvert her own tendencies. The story was very sad, not for the victim, whose personality made it likely somebody was going to kill her at some point or another, but for the murderer.Dame Christie continue [...]
The famous detective Hercule Poirot was expecting a relaxing holiday on a steamer heading up the Nile. Some agitation among a few of the passengers has him a little on edge. Soon a terrible crime will turn Poirot's exotic Egyptian vacation into an investigation.The book was cleverly written with interesting characters. There were several people on the cruise that had something to hide, or a motive to murder, so it kept me guessing until the end.
Worum geht’s?Eigentlich möchte Meisterdetektiv Hercule Poirot die Kreuzfahrt auf dem Nil dazu nutzen, sich zu entspannen und die zahlreichen Sehenswürdigkeiten zu bestaunen – doch seine Pläne werden schnell durchkreuzt. Mit an Bord sind unter anderem die schöne und steinreiche Erbin Linnet Rigdeway und ihr Verlobter Simon. Deren Hochzeitsreise verläuft bisher alles andere als heiter: Miss de Bellefort, Linnets ehemals beste Freundin, der sie Simon ausgespannt hat, folgt dem Paar hartnä [...]
I enjoyed this book. I don't think I read enough Agatha Christie. They are always a pleasant surprise. I enjoy Hercule Poirot and his thought processes. Even though I had this one figured out early on, I found that I enjoyed the characters the most. They were well drawn and I was definitely enchanted.
"Death on the Nile" is a intriguing Poirot mystery, that involves a murder and ship full of people who may easily have had a motive for the deed. So, though I'd expected a thrilling setting for the murder (like the African background in "Man in the Brown Suit") instead the majority of the book takes place on the boat. This is definitely more "traditional" murder mystery style, where it consists of Q&A with nearly every passenger on the ship. But, Christie manages to add in a lot of character [...]
For me, Agatha Cristie is the most important author of thriller and crime novels. I love getting lost in her atmosphere full of mystery and sophistication in which each of the characters can be a hero or a murderer. Death on the Nile is undoubtedly one of his best-known novels and its reputation is well deserved. I encourage all readers of detective fiction and suspense to read this jewel of literature and the magic of Agatha Christie's words.Spanish version:Para mi Agatha Cristie es el genio de [...]
Uno de los mejores libros de la autora, lo leí hace tiempo y pensé que no me iba a acordar pero a medida que avanzaba con la lectura empecé a recordar quien era el asesino. Aún así fue una experiencia increíble, me lo llevé como lectura a mi viaje por Egipto, y fue fascinante recorrer los mismos lugares de la novela mientras la leía, si queréis saber más os invito a leer la entrada que hice en mi blog sobre los escenarios de la novela: viajesdeunabibliofilaspo

This is a favourite of mine due to the fact that this book was the first Agatha Christie book I ever read. It still holds it wonder and maybe after reading many other I believe it is a little bit more predictable than the other but like all other Agatha Christie books this was well written and had it unique flare. 4.5 Stars!!
