I am very happy that I got a chance to read this book because I probably would never get the chance to read it again. I may read another one of agatha christie 's books because I enjoyed this one so much but as I look her books that she has written, a lot of them are about murder so maybe not but i’ll just have to read and see. This book to me reminds me of the gameboard clue and how it sort of resembles it. So in overall i enjoyed this book and believe that it is a good read, I think everyone should get a chance to read this
