The truth, however ugly in itself, is always curious and beautiful to the seeker.Tweet
The story follows the murder of a lady whose marrying Roger Ackroyd and had poisoned her husband to death! She left a letter to Roger telling the reason why she had done so. She actually got blackmailed by…… Roger did not finished reading it infront of Professor Sheppard and died afterwards.
Later, Sheppard got the news of Roger’s death. Thats when the investigation begins where I’ve got pretty decepted and clueless until the story got unraveled one by one.
SPOILER ALERT! (There are a few suspects but the real murderer is certainly not one of them. I know right? Poor Roger’s stepson has no alibi at all. He fits in all the puzzle.)
The story does not hit me 100% but I really like it especially when Agatha is using Sheppard as the narrator and made him almost like the author of the book himself. Its a brilliant work I can say!
Agatha put so many twist and layers into it and left them for us to guess and revealed it at the end. I am satisfied by the ending and I am onto the next Poirot Series!
Oh yeah. This is kind of book, alongside ‘And Then There Were None’ is a book you should have with you if you’re stranded on an island. It makes your brain cells working and your imaginations go wild.
