APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
The detective with the magnificent mustache is back, but The ABC Murders isn’t just another old-fashioned murder mystery. In one of Agatha Christie’s best Hercule Poirot novels, the legendary Belgian detective is on the hunt for a creepily methodical serial killer whose calling card is a copy of Britain’s ABC Railway Guide that he leaves by each victim’s body. After Alice Ascher in Andover, and Betty Barnard in Bexhill, the clock is ticking for Poirot—there are potentially another 24 victims! As always, Christie is a master of red herrings and fake-outs, but this is one of her most structurally interesting novels. With a story that keeps shifting between first and third person, this 1936 classic has the feeling of a 21st-century thriller that any Gone Girl fan could love.

Confusing but good
Had to read it for a summer reading book for high school. A little bit confusing at first but turned out to be really good I didn't like the French part though that was hard to understand
Loved this so much
I loved this. My dad thought it was a little slow but the characters, cinematography, and acting was absolutely insane. Great production and intriguing story.
One of Agatha’s Best
I believe this to be one of her best books.
