Nemesis: A Miss Marple Mystery | [Agatha Christie]

Nemesis: A Miss Marple Mystery

In utter disbelief, Miss Marple read the letter addressed to her from the recently deceased Mr. Rafiel...an acquaintance she had met briefly on her travels. He had left instructions for her to investigate a crime after his death. The only problem was, he had failed to tell her who was involved or where and when the crime had been committed. It was most intriguing. Soon she is faced with a new crime...the ultimate crime...murder. It seems someone is adamant that past evils remained buried....

    Story
    "Not Prime Time Miss Marple"
    What could Agatha Christie have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    This was so drawn out, with endless repetition of the slim facts and clues of this almost non-existent mystery. Almost no story, but the characters, as always in Agatha Christie, are fun. Great narration by Emilia Fox !


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Very disappointing. The first Agatha Christie that I didn't enjoy.

    "Good story, good narration."

    Consistently good author, one of my favorites. I guessed wrong "whodunit" but thankfully Miss Marple did not. Nicely narrated too.

    Story
    "Probably would have preferred an abridged version"
    Would you try another book from Agatha Christie and/or Emilia Fox?

    Agatha Christie - definitely! Emilia Fox - probably not.


    Would you recommend Nemesis to your friends? Why or why not?

    The print version to be able to skip the long, tedious parts. Or the TV movie with Joan Hickson as Miss Marple.


    Did Emilia Fox do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes and No. The characters all had separate, distinct voices but some of them were grating and annoying.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Absolutely - Joan Hickson was wonderful in the (TV) movie.


    Any additional comments?

    I love Agatha Christie stories but this one really needed some editing - 9-plus hours was just too long with a lot of repeating dialogue that finally got tedious. And I couldn't lose myself in the story because I was too aware of the narrator - she reminded me of an American trying to be British.

    "Excellent performance of a great Christie."

    Excellent performance by Emilia Fox. Classic Christie murder mystery. I very much enjoyed listening. One of her better stories, I think.

    Story
    "Miss Marple Solves a Cold Case - that isn't"
    Would you listen to Nemesis again? Why?

    Yes. I only buy audio books that I plan to listen to multiple times. This one was pretty well plotted, without the "hidden factors" that Christie sometimes relies upon. I enjoyed the fact that it involved a "solved" crime that had, in fact,not been solved at all.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Miss Marple is always a favorite character of mine. I love her mix of doddering little old lady and high mental acuity.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Miss Marple contemplating those white flowers in the garden, and her reaction to what they implied.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not really.


    Any additional comments?

    The reader had some obvious difficulty with the male voices, so they were occasionally distracting. Nonetheless, the book is a worthwhile "read".
