>she just writes mystery slop
Yeah, and they are all great.
>>
>>23389096
Because they are all trying to copy her instead of writing what they want, using their own experiences and their own perception of the world.
>>
Why was this considered her magnum opiate? I found the characters' actions to be extremely illogical and unbelievable considering their situation.
>>
>>23390856
Don't know. Maybe because it's the father of whodunit stories? Her Poirot novels are much better though.

she killed all those people OP

Why did Lord Murderedhiswife do this?

If there is a youngish man and a youngish woman in the story, they will get together in the end and neither of them did the crime. That always cuts down the number of suspects by two

i always thought that the only thing they changed about this was the title, but then i read it and it turns out niggers are baked into the story all the way through. there's the nigger poem that is referenced throughout, nigger figurines, even the fucking island is called NIGGER ISLAND in the original. i mean the book isn't even really racist in its attitudes (an early clue that two of the most despicable characters are secretly evil is when they're both being like "it's no big deal about murder if it's just natives") but it's funny just how much of the book they had to edit to purge it of the N word

I only watched the 2015 show and I based on that I think the book must suck!
