Reader reviews for A Caribbean Mystery

I usually love Agatha Christie, easy to read on the tube (or holiday) maybe because it's freezing here I just din't get this one, the usual twist wasn't so surprising more just a bit silly and confusing and it's dated badly.

Major Palgrave turns up dead while Miss Marple vacations in the Caribbean. She is the first to suspect foul play, but pretty soon the authorities are suspicious as well. Miss Marple unravels the mystery to find the person responsible. A classic.

Lindapanzo mentioned that she was enjoying this Christie so I picked it up last night for some light reading after a very stressful day. This was one I had never read and the first Miss Marple I’ve read in quite a while. It was interesting to see her having to operate outside her normal milieu of St. Mary Mead. However her powers of observation, ability to draw people out and her intuition don’t fail her even in this exotic location among strangers. It was an enjoyable mystery with interesting characters and good plot and although early on my intuition in picking out the villain proved to be a good instinct, I wasn’t really certain until almost the end. Recommended, especially for fans

I saw from my inscription on the flyleaf of this book that I bought it back home in Loughborough in the spring of 1975, during my first year at grammar school, and I presume that I read it shortly afterwards. I certainly remember that I enjoyed it then, and I was surprised to find how much i enjoyed re-reading it now. I am sure that the first time around I was oblivious to the social comment and Miss Marple's wry observations of life (though I do recall thinking that her descriptions of St Mary Mead sounded very similar to the village in which I grew up.As always with Agatha Christie the plot is deftly constructed and the characters generally believable. This is far from her finest moment, but even here she keeps the reader hanging on and I have to confess to having been completely fooled as to the identity of the murderer.Definitely an enjoyable venture into nostalgia.
