The other day in some conversation I said “If I had to draw parallels to this…” and I realised the influence of Miss Marple on me. Well, I must admit even otherwise, I do try to connect related (and unrelated) things.
Another Agatha Christie thriller I gulped down; A Caribbean Mystery featuring Miss Marple. What more and what different I can say. As always – excellent plot, excellent characters, extra-ordinary Miss Marple and her technique and an interesting mystery unfolded.
Agatha Christie novels, especially the Miss Marple ones, reveal so many perspectives about the human, their mind, their behaviour, their intelligence and of course, their follies.
Like in this one, stories or rather rumours are spread and this happens because of people, in general, who like to gossip around without the even confirming the source of it. The criminal mind obviously takes advantage of this common human behaviour.
Secondly, there is always more than what meets the eye. So one needs to keep this in mind before making any judgements about people or events.
And if one wants to unfold the mystery, the essence is in detail. Note the facts, observe the proceedings, connect the dots and Bingo !! the crime and the criminal get unveiled.
That’s all for The Caribbean Mystery. A definite MUST read for all mystery lover and Agatha Christie fans.
