I'm a huge Agatha Christie fan, so I would recommend most of her works. The character, Hercule Poirot is by far my favorite. He uses his "little gray cells" to logically put together the clues and guides us to a satisfying closure for each of his cases. Although he is on vacation in Death on the Nile, a series of murders and a robbery plead for his expertise.
The other characters in this novel are rich and complex. Agatha, who also loved to travel to exotic places, gives us wonderful descriptions of Egypt along the Nile and of the cities visited from the river ship on which the characters travelled. She also gives u specific descriptions of each character's looks, clothing, and even the quirks they have (such as a particular smile) that sets each apart.
This novel was first published in 1937 and is still being read by so many. It shows that no matter what era in which we are born, emotions such as jealousy, envy, lust, and love are the same. I give this novel a 5 out of 5, and recommend it highly to all.
