      What's my favorite Agatha Christie novel? Well, I'd have a hard time picking between Murder on the Orient Expressand Sleeping Murder. But this one is more, um, realish?The idea that what happened in Murder on the Orient Express could actually happen pretty far-fetched. And, yes Sleeping Murder is (by today's standards) kinda outlandish, too.BUT.Less outlandish than MotOE. <--MY OPINIONPlus, I love me some Miss Marple!The main characters are newlyweds Gwenda & Giles, but Jane Marple is int [...]

      In the beginning, a personal anecdote:As a child, I was troubled intermittently by a nightmare. I am walking around the compound of my maternal grandfather's ancestral home, when I reach a dilapidated building in a secluded corner. I open it and enter, even though my better sense counsels against it. Inside, it is a prayer room dedicated to evil gods. Their pictures are hung all over the walls, and their ugly idols leer up at me. Also, the place is full of the images of the tortured victims of t [...]

      I thought I had read this Miss Marple before, but maybe I hadn't. I would have thought the heroine (Gwenda) being both a New Zealander and having the same name as one of my childhood friends would have stuck in my mind if so.Although this book stretches coincidence just about to breaking point and did lose momentum near the middle, I still enjoyed it. Some of Christie's earlier novels have a sly wit (in this book the scene with Miss Marple and her physician) and she evokes a long gone world of a [...]

      Although this is listed as the thirteenth Miss Marple novel, and was published in 1976, it was actually written during WWII and shows her as a fairly sprightly lady, compared to some books. According to the Agatha Christie website, it should sit between “The Moving Finger,” and “A Murder is Announced,” and that is where I have positioned it in my re-reading of these books.Gwenda Reed has arrived from New Zealand, charged with buying a house for her, and her new husband, Giles; who is due [...]

      Book 5 for the Miss Marple challenge. I was excited to read this one as this is the first of the books in the Miss Marple challenge that I had not read before. I also only discovered because of the challenge that though this book was published last, it was written much earlier and chronologically also falls early in the series. This one was in a way Miss Marple’s Five little Pigs, a murder that has happened years ago, without even clarity on whether it was a murder but based on a (then) child [...]

      “One always has hope for human nature” Although I'm more of a Poirot groupie, I tried Sleeping Murder and Miss Marple's detective input on for size to see how it went. Better than the one I read with her salivating over rose gardens, it focused on a young couple who moved into a house and needed help solving a mystery, mainly of a memory of a murder that doesn't make sense.It's not the classic whodunnit with a modern murder, and Miss Marple warns not to stir up the hornet's nest that is the [...]

      Her words held all the pointed innuendo that elderly ladies are able to achieve with the minimum of actual statement.I had low expectations for this one. Nemesis broke me. Nemesis was the book that obliterated any regards I may have harboured for Miss Marple.It seems, however, that Sleeping Murder was written well before Nemesis, even if it was published last in the series, and that the Miss Marple of Sleeping Murder is not as annoying as her older self, yet.As becomes clear at the end of this b [...]

      Last Marple story.After a slow start, this novel picks up in an engaging way. Was there a murder? And how do you find out nearly 20 years later? Marple is present but rather in the background, as as guiding presence, with her down-to-earth, common sense logic. As always, I am fascinated how events can be interpreted in such different ways, and how by turning a little bit, the picture becomes totally different. The wrong clothes clue really spoke to me and reminded me of Glaspell's A Jury of Her [...]

      I finally guessed the murderer early in the book! Whew! I was beginning to fear I'd lost my edge. 🤔lol!

    15. Sara on said:

      Vintage Agatha Christie. I figured this one out well in advance of the ending, but I still enjoyed the read and remember why Christie was so popular in her time. At the time this was written, it probably wouldn't have been so easy to solve the who-done-it. Christie and others have honed my sense of possibilities. Miss Marple is a very subtle character in this novel, more a guide than a detective. A nice break from some heavier readingI'm in the process of reading Middlemarch and needed some air. [...]

    16. Claudiu D. on said:

      Este primul roman cu Miss Marple pe care il citesc si unul din ultimele pe care Agatha le-a publicat. El ar trebui sa fie ultimul din seria cu Miss Marple. Mi-a placut foarte mult felul in care a fost organizata si ca nu a mai respectat calapodul ala obositor de la Poirot, cu o mie interogatorii. Misterul cam slabut, dar mi-a placut atentia sporita la personaje, spre deosebire de Poirot unde accentul cade pe mister.

      Coming to the end of Ms Christie's works, I started with the group somewhere in the middle, so will be circling pack to the beginning soon. The last of the Miss Marple novels is ending on a high note, the misdirection was in full flower in this story, although years of reading Christie has taught me to think like Miss Marple, trust no one and accept nothing as truth without verification. She gives a nice bunch of red herrings in this one, and a lovely newlywed couple. A very enjoyable story of m [...]

      3.5 starsIt seemed that, unconsciously, I have suspected the murderer right from the start. Even with so many red herrings and distractions thrown in the way, my suspicions for the suspect would not waver. So it wasn't really a surprise when the truth is revealed.

      للأسف أن عنصر المفاجئة اختفى من الرواية في بدايتها، لقد عرفت القاتل فوراً، فهذه القصة نُقلت حرفياً من خلال مسلسل سوري بعنوان (جريمة في الذاكرة) ، و قد شاهدته قبل أكثر من 15 سنة مضت. و مع هذا شعرت بشيء من التشويق و المتعة في تتبع مجريات هذه الجريمة.

      I joined to review this book. I had read every one of Christie's books in younger days. I still love cozy mysteries as well as pychological dark ones. But I needed to say that in this book, Christie reveals her personal ideas and life more than any other. There is a character in the book who I think Christie patterned after her personal life. There is an unattractive woman who is married to a very charming man and everyone feels sorry for the husband whose wife is a jealous unhappy woman but Ms [...]

      Saya lupa sejak kapan tepatnya mulai ketagihan membaca Agatha Christie, terutama seri Poirot dan Miss Marple. Bahkan saya menyempatkan diri untuk menelusuri (meskipun secara sekilas) biografi penulis yang konon dijuluki “Queen of Crime” ini. Dari situ saya mengetahui kalau Agatha Christie dan Conan Doyle berbeda sekitar satu generasi. Conan Doyle satu generasi di atas Agatha Christie. Tak heran, di beberapa buku nama Holmes dan Watson sempat muncul.Buku Pembunuhan Terpendam (Sleeping Murder) [...]

    25. Leslie on said:

      This is one of my favorite Miss Marples and Rosemary Leach did a fine narration. Having read this several times before, I was able to appreciate how skillfully Christie gives you all the clues while misdirecting you! Only one place was there a slight flavor of 'cheating' (view spoiler)[when the narrative jumps in time from Kennedy with the Reeds to Lily's murder and back, implying that the murder happened simultaneously with the tea. (hide spoiler)]

      This is a re read of an utterly fabulous, chilling and enthralling mystery. I remember how I first felt when I read this book, it was great being with the familiar characters again. Gwenda and Giles are so damn precious, they've definitely been among my favourite secondary Agatha Christie characters. Essentially this was a re read of an all time favourite.While Miss Marple didn't feature too heavily in this one, her role was nonetheless vital to the resolution of the crime. She was so tender and [...]
