Review: I’m generally an Agatha Christie fan, but The Sittaford Mystery didn’t gel with me. The plot, mystery, intrigue, etc. etc. is relatively average, though there’s an interesting “multiple perspectives” thing going on. However, the book seems unfinished. The plot is there, the dialogue is there, but there is very little surrounding it. People are going from place to place speaking to other people, and there isn’t much to build any atmosphere, to get me into the story at all, or to otherwise make this a book rather than a play.
Still, it’s a short, overall fun little mystery, and if for no other reason it’s worth picking this book up to be introduced to the character of Emily.
