This was my first mystery and is still my favorite. Agatha Christie is such an icon I don't blame her for keeping me up all night after reading this. She weaves incredibly sophisticated stories with a unique cast of characters and there is always a deeper meaning to uncover. If you are looking to start your journey with Agatha, this is the perfect one to start with.

I am a huge fan of books with quirky characters, and Eleanor takes the cake. She is a sweet, well-meaning, intelligent woman who is often misunderstood. While you read about her story, you also begin to uncover something unsettling in the background, but not too unsettling as to upset the charming aesthetic of Eleanor's personal journey.
