    This is truly a find I recently recommended Bayard s other book How to Talk About Books you Haven t Read and am equally enthusiastic about this one In this short but dense text, Bayard deconstructs one of Agatha Christie s most famous Hercule Poirot novels The Murder of Roger Ackroyd It helps to re read Christie before embarking on Bayard Spoiler alert for those of you who haven t read Christie which is a mistake and you should add it along with The Mysterious Affair at Styles and The This is truly a f...

    Reads like a Doctoral Thesis in psychology Filled with spoilers of almost the entire Christie oeuvre And his new solution I won t spoil it is fairly lame and, like Christie, comes only in the final few pages Christie, however, is entertaining.

    A really interesting re evaluation of the Agatha Christie book The Murder of Roger Ackroyd in which Bayard suggests that another character is actually the murderer, not the character accused by Poirot and accepted by posterity Bayard compares Ackroyd to similar Christie novels Endless Night and Curtain as well as other works such as Oedipus Rex He examines the nature of delusions, Freud s psychoanalysis and the act of reading A fascinating evaluation of both the classic book and t A really interesting re evaluation of the Agatha Christie book The Murder of Roger Ackroyd in which Bayard suggests that another character is actually the murderer, not the character ac...

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here The book proposes a very tasty alternate solution which shows considerable promise The psychologic profile fits better, the choice of suicide by Shephard becomeslogical, introduces a love component to the story, the entire ridiculous business with the dicataphone is not needed But it fails.The book proposes Caroline Shephard as the murderer with Dr Shephard as the blackmailer explaining she killed Ackeroyd to protect her brother Many things fit perfectly but not the clue of displacemen...

    A fascinating but at times frustrating read.The author is at his best when 1 discussing the rules aesthetics of detective fiction and 2 offering close readings of the texts, and at his worst when wandering into the worlds of psychoanalysis and post modern literary criticism While deconstructing delusion a worthwhile activity , he fails to similarly reveal the constituent parts of lying or murder in particular the key notion of in...

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here Meh Not nearly as good as anticipated I can t get over his declaration that Poirot is delusional sorry if that spoils it for you And I see no reason why it s better to say that Sheppard just knew that Ackroyd had been murdered because he _didn t_ get a phone call from Ackroyd and that s why he hot footed it over there than to believe Poirot that Sheppard set up the phone call to cover his need to get back to the scene of the crime Otherwise, I could go along with his selection of alter Meh Not nearly as good as anticipated I can t get over his declaration that Poirot is delusional sorry if that spoils it for you And I see no reason why it s better to say that Sheppard just knew that Ackroyd had been murdered because he _didn t_ get a phone call from Ackroyd and that s why he hot footed it ove...

    the disection of the text of the Christie s classic mystery is wonderful to read but I can t accept his premace that Poirot s deduction of Dr Shepherd as the murderer is a psychotic delusion I trust Poirot s little grey cells but an interesting read all the same

  8. says:

    Way too many spoilers This is written for an academic audience familiar with the entire Christie canon I had to skip pages at a time to avoid list after list ruining twist endings.

  9. says:

    The Murder of Roger Ackroyd is not just one of my favorite Agatha Christie books but one of my favorite books of any genre The ending is just so fantastic The clues are there for the reader to pick up on, but you don t Or at least I didn t But Mr Bayard is here to say, the very ambiguous writing leads to the wrong conclusion He actually refutes Dame Christie s ending...

    Maybe i was too tired to be reading the last half but i found it to become a muchdifficult read than i had anticipated But i did enjoy the ultimate solution and probably should have invested the time to reading Agatha Christie s novel before this Oh well.
