Book Review: Elephants can Remember by Agatha Christie
|Book Name:||Elephants can Remember|
This book Elephants can Remember is again not the usual Agatha Christie book in the sense that it turned out to be actually boring and I kept waiting for the book to finish. You know what it reminded me of? When I used to love Sidney Sheldon books and later read inspired work by Tilly Bagshawe. I mean the writing is just ok and not too great.
I assume there comes a time when authors have written 100s of books and want to try out a different kind of writing. In fact the only thing I liked in this book was the characterization of Adriane Oliver, the mystery writer. Oh, it felt like how some are able to write thrillers by having a propensity to research and getting enthusiastic about even a small lead. By the way, is her character based on Agatha Christie, just wondering? However, if you are a newbie in reading such genre or you have never before read Agatha’s books, I will not recommend this one for starters but to be kept at the very end of spectrum.
Keep watching my blog for more of Agatha Christie books.
