I am not surprised that this book is on a list of "best" books. It set the bar in the English country-side mystery genre, and has probably inspired more writers to think, "Ooh! I want to create that kind of effect with my writing!" than any other single murder mystery. After I finished this book for the first time, I immediately began it again, and read it straight through, for the sheer pleasure of seeing how Mrs. Christie had managed it. In the fifty years since then, I've returned to it, and many more of her books, several times. Even when I remember "who done it," I relish how Agatha "done it."
