    1. Miss Marple has the best nephew in the world Raymond West who is constantly thinking up little treats for his Aunt Jane In this novel though, it is his wife, Joan, who suggests that she needs a little trip and Miss Marple says she would like to go to Bertram s Hotel She stayed there as a girl and is somewhat surprised at how little it has changed Bertram s is a haven for the well to do in London visited by retired army officers, clergymen, the aristocracy and wealthy Americans Muffins are served [...]


    2. I learned what I suppose I really knew already that one can never go back, that one should not ever try to go back that the essence of life is going forward Life is really a One Way Street, isn t it I put a spoiler warning on this post not so much because I will discuss the details of the plot but because I will discuss some of the characters in a way that will give away much of the conclusion If you are planning to read the book, don t read any further You have been warned view spoiler At Bertr [...]


    3. I think I liked the idea of this book than I actually enjoyed it The feeling that there is something dark and thoroughly sinister behind the pleasant perfection of Bertram s Hotel and its highly trained staff maintained a heightened sense of suspense and kept the reader itching to find out what happened next.Unfortunately, you ll reach a point when you find out the mystery is not as interesting or anywhere near as sinister as you thought it might be view spoiler There is nothing disappointing [...]


    4. Choose Your Own Adventure You say you don t like creative reviews You say they distract from the passion, you say they aren t real, you say they replace research with humor You say they are a waste of time Yet here you are, playing your little games.If you are ashamed of yourself because it feels so good, choose review show If you think hypocrisy is just another word for nothing left to lose, choose review show


    5. Yet another nephew pays for Miss Marple to take a vacation wherever she wants She choose an old hotel I would have chosen Italy, but that s just me.Anyway, the hotel is full of interesting characters and a murderer Miss Marple quickly locates the biggest gossips and gets to work.


    6. Book 10 in the Miss Marple Challenge At Bertram s Hotel was rather different from the Marples I ve read so far It starts off quite the same though Miss Marple is travelling again, but unlike in the previous book, she has only gone up to London this time, to stay for a fortnight at Bertram s Hotel, a place she had stayed at as a fourteen year old and has fond memories of At the hotel there are some familiar faces, Lady Selina Hayes who she knows from the former s brief stay at St Mary Mead and Ca [...]


    7. I m always grateful when I find a Miss Marple book where the title sleuth gets to actually be present for about half the story this one, in fact, featured Miss Marple than any of her other mysteries I ve read She still disappears for lengthy amounts of time, but this time it actually feels purposeful Miss Marple doesn t appear at certain points because the other characters are busy doing important things, things that Miss Marple can t be present for because then the mystery would be over Unlike [...]


    8. 2.5 stars This is probably one of the worst books by Agatha Christie I have read The mystery was boring and the murder came too late And it was so obvious who the murderer was Worst, there wasn t conclusive proof that could put the villain in jail, only a policeman s vow that he would find a way.I didn t rate it worse because I loved this quote which I found terrible but truthful I learned what I suppose I really knew already that one can never go back, that one should not ever try to go back th [...]


    9. I loved this book, though I can see that it s not one of Agatha s best plots Miss Marple doesn t really solve the mystery a policeman does But as a novel, I think it s among Agatha s best, most balanced novels The hotel atmosphere and descriptions of London, and several of the characters, are just brilliantly done It was v gripping and huge fun to read.


    10. As with some of the other Miss Marple books, I see in my head, as I am reading, the Joan Hickson TV episode In the case of Bertram s Hotel, for some reason, this was even the case, almost like the movie was playing as i read.Anyway that aside, again it was another really enjoyable book, with Miss Marple excelling in her role of detecting from her armchair whilst knitting I thought it was less light hearted than some of her earlier works, a little darker, which was no bad thing, just different.O [...]



    11. This book did make me hungry for hearty English breakfasts, the kind they serve at Bertram s Hotel.It s one of Christie s later novels the Beatles get a mention, so we know it s the early sixties Yet the old world lingers girls under 21 are frowned on if they go out without chaperones, and women who have than just a handful of lovers during their whole lives are nymphomaniacs Christie had issues Miss Marple mostly just sits on her ass in this one, informing a detective that a young girl might b [...]


    12. Pozna Agata sa za taj period standardnim prosedeom u kome se dosta kr e ruke nad ovom novom omladinom to slu a Bitlse i ponavljaju alopojke za predratnom kuhinjom i predratnim name tajem G ica Marpl armantna kao i uvek, ali glavni zaplet malo previ e maskiran sporednim.



    13. This is one of my favorite Agatha Christie books I think for no other reason than that I want to stay at this hotel Well I also do think that the mother daughter relationship is really interestingly done, and who doesn t love a good noble sacrifice But still the descriptions of muffins are what stays with you.


    14. It seems Miss Marple has become a secondary character I wish we had time with her thoughts than with Inspector Davy.


    15. One of my favourite Miss Marple novels which places her in the midst of 1960s London Christie has fun with ideas of nostalgia and the inability to live in the past however beautifully a facade may be recreated as is the case with Bertram s Hotel With fast racing cars and organised crime set against forgetful canons and out of touch majors, Christie seems to be self consciously noting the passing of the milieu in which so many of her books had been set, while slyly acknowledging her readers own d [...]


    16. Mungkin salah satu less favorite book dari Agatha dan series miss marple Lumayan cukup bosan 2 3 awal buku nya, misteri nya kurang dan banyak kejadian kejadian yang kurang greget Tapi suka setting hotel nya sama deskripsi makanannya Selama baca jadi kepengen makan muffin dan nyobain jamuan teh ala Inggris.


    17. I enjoyed this particular story very much Not the most imaginative beginning to a review but that s the first thing I wanted to say Gone here, are the orderly presentations of suspects Mrs Agatha Christie here departs from her usual structure although the style is as sterling as ever and I can t for the life of me imagine who was she copying with such a fearless endeavor.While reading the bits where Miss Marple appears, I was regretting that she doesn t exist she is a relic as much as the Hotel [...]


    18. Thoroughly enjoyed this BBC adaptation of a book that I had read and enjoyed at least on 2 prior occasions Thankfully I didnot remember the perpetrators, and was pleasantly surprised at the end, as I failed to get to the core of the mystery.This book combines all cozy things childhood reminiscences, a two week hotel stay vacation how I wish I had an opportunity like that , a cozy mystery to occupy oneself, and a murder.Miss Marple is gifted a well deserved vacation for two weeks by her writer ne [...]


    19. I liked the previous Miss Marple book that I read so much I immediately borrowed another At Bertram s Hotel takes place in London, where Miss Marple is on holiday The main mystery for most of the book is the disappearance of a clergyman, who is later found alive but concussed There is a murder, but it happens towards the end.I ve gotta say, the twist in this story is a lot incredible than it is in The Body in the Library But, it was set up well by Chief Inspector Davy Father and I definitely bo [...]


    20. Miss Marple s nephew offers to pay for a holiday for her, and she chooses a stay at Bertram s Hotel in London It is an old fashioned, genteel hotel with superior service and traditional rooms, populated by respectable guests Yet before long Miss Marple becomes aware that all is not as it seems, and her vague sense of discomfort seems justified when absent minded Canon Pennyfather disappearsVery enjoyable mystery, one of the better Miss Marple novels in my opinion Although we do get to see quite [...]


    21. 3.75 A very slow read I know that Miss Marple s series were quiet cozy and the investigations were done in the ordinary style except for the interference of Miss Marple, of course , but in this one, the introduction and setup took than half of the book The actions only get going after 60% into the story But this being an Agatha Christie book, you can bet there would be some good actions and unveiling, even if it was at the end of the book This is a mild mystery, and for the first time Miss Marp [...]


    22. 4.5 stars this was not only a fascinating, complex mystery, but also a very interesting meditation on the passage of time and the changes wrought, and how the yearning for a perfect past that can t be recovered can cover up a lot of unpleasantness Truly a timeless theme.I love Miss Marple her clear eyed willingness to contemplate and confront evil, even as she becomes older and frail, is a delight and an inspiration, especially in these morally challenging times Onward to Nemesis.



    23. At a young age, I fell in love with the elderly sleuth, Miss Marple I first discovered her through the miniseries that aired on PBS in the early 2000s It starred Geraldine McEwan as Jane Marple and featured an array of superb British actors Not until I was in my twenties did I start to read the actual books on which the miniseries was based Now that I ve devoured several Miss Marple mysteries, I have a new appreciation for Agatha Christie and her ability to write books that are both delicious pa [...]


    24. I feel bad for not liking this book, so to make myself feel better, I m going to brainstorm the reasons why.1 I don t think I ve ever read a proper mystery before, much less an Agatha Christie mystery, so I feel I was a bit lacking in my prior knowledge of the author s style.2 Maybe I should have read this book in one sitting, because I didn t really follow it too well Maybe I forgot important overheard conversations, etc but the main reason I didn t enjoy the book is because I pretty much had n [...]
