The Murder of Roger Ackroyd Agatha Christie Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
Voted by the British Crime Writers’ Association as the "Best Crime Novel of all Time"
Hercule Poirot comes out of retirement in one of Agatha Christie’s ten favorite novels, The Murder of Rojer Ackroyd.
Roger Ackroyd knew too much. He knew that the woman he loved had poisoned her brutal first husband. He suspected also that someone had been blackmailing her. Then, tragically, came the news that she had taken her own life with an apparent drug overdose.
However the evening post brought Roger one last fatal scrap of information, but before he could finish reading the letter, he was stabbed to death. Luckily one of Roger’s friends and the newest resident to retire to this normally quiet village takes over—none other than Monsieur Hercule Poirot.

User reviews about this book
What a twist
The ending to this book genuinely shocked me. I recommend this for your first Agatha Christie book if you’re new to the author. DO NOT seek out any spoilers, just let this one happen to you.
Spoiled for me
I guess it would have been awesome if the person didn’t say who did it in the reviews.
Crazy Ending lol...writing has to be very good to pull that off AND make sense
She had me going til the end. Bravo, Ms. Christie and thank you for a wonderful story.
In most mysteries, I guess the murderer. In this one, I had no clue until the end. Some of the other reviewers seem confused as to the perpetrator, but I don't see how it is confusing. The story is pretty straight forward, and gets really interesting at the end. The writing is amazing, and had me entwined in the pages.
One of best mysteries of all time
By William Porter
Agatha Christie is the master of the English country-house murder, and 'Murder of Roger Ackroyd' is one of the best plotted and best executed of her masterpieces. Entertaining read that will give your little gray cells at least a gentle massage.
By Emmet Aloysius
A satisfying mystery from Christie which keeps you guessing until the end and starring Inspector Poirot...EAF

By Old guy syndrome
I was told to read this book as fast as possible. It wasn't hard to do. A real page turner with a great plot twist surprising for the time period in which it was written.
One of my favorite books.
