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.

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.
