    Not the best of Christie's mysteries, and some truly appalling casual racism that threw me out of the story as a modern reader. Blah blah context, I know, but the characters themselves were detestable. I quote this as an example as the two romantic protagonists get to know each other over dinner:They liked dogs and disliked cats. They both hated oysters and loved smoked salmon. They liked Greta Garbo and disliked Katherine Hepburn. They didn't like fat women and admired really jet-black hair. Th [...]

    This is the book that Agatha Christie wrote after she'd had her run-in with the Doctor, and it shows. I contend that Jean is the Doctor Okay, that was my nerd moment. It's a fun read, as always, with a good solution. One nice thing about Agatha Christie is that she gives you all the clues. It isn't like she says, last minute, "And I knew you were the murderer because your fingerprints were on the gun!" If fingerprints are on the gun (which they never are, of course), you know as soon as the dete [...]

    Every time Poirot travels anywhere, one of his fellow travelers/passengers is murdered. The man is a walking jinx, I tell you.

    An absolutely delightful "whodunnit"! I had forgotten how much I enjoy Agatha Christie! She was the first author I read after I started to move away from horse books. I remember having been to the mall and bought some Miss Marple Mysteries, one of the classmates I hung out with mentioned "oh, so somebody actually reads this stuff?" Right. Agatha Christie being outsold only by the Bible and Shakespeare! No, J.K Rowling isn't quite in this distinguished league yet, but I expect she will be.In this [...]

    Not my favorite Christie, but fun all the same.Of note: Since I first added this book to my TBR in 2008 (thanks, !), I have developed a rather bad fear of flying, so this book (in which one passenger is murdered by another) was like, one nightmare scenario on top of another for me. Add wasps (FUCKING WASPS USELESS DEVIL BUGS) in to the mix and why don’t you just kill me already.This is a Poirot mystery, and a later one at that. I have tried in vain to read all the Poirot books in order, but my [...]

    Death in the Clouds (formerly Death in the Air) (vast title improvement, Agatha!?)A flight from Paris to Croydon. Poirot on the flight, asleep for most of it. A woman, Giselle, is murdered on the way. What ensues is a closed set mystery, including a scorecard with a short list of suspects and a map for us to peruse, illustrating where all were seated. Death, we learn at the Croydon inquest, was by Boomslang (South African tree snake) venom from the tip of a thorn found near the murder victim. (C [...]

    Not too much to say about this one besides the fact I really enjoyed it.On a flight we have Poirot on the scene when a woman is found dead before the end of the flight. At first it appears that a wasp has stung her, but looking closer it appears someone has killed her with a dart. With a plane of suspects it takes all of Poirot's little gray cells to figure out how do the killer do this and why. I always enjoy it when Christie's books have diagrams in them. This one does and spells out where eac [...]

    3.5/5 starsI was finally able to pick a good one again!Really enjoyed it!Funny story:It was such a struggle to read the end because I was in the car with my family. They kept distracting me and I was like ''Will you please give me a minute!? They're finally telling who the killer is!''It took me FORTY minutes to read like TEN pages (the final ones)!!

    It seems that death is constantly following Poirot around. He can never escape it. Not even on a god damn plane. Death in the Clouds has Poirot trying to solve how Madame Giselle died in her seat on the flight. At first, he thinks it's because of a wasp sting - which had me so confused because HOW THE HELL DID NO ONE NOTICE A GOD DAMN BEE ON THE PLANE?!? I'd be bobbing and weaving to get off that flight if I saw a bee. I'd run for the hills people. I hate bees.But then he comes to his sense and [...]

    Back in the days when I was really into Agatha Christie, I decided I really only liked her Hercule Poirot mysteries. After reading this, I remember why. They have greater complexity (thanks to Poirot's little grey cells) and fewer boring society details than Christie's other mysteries. I really enjoyed reconnecting with M. Poirot in this story. What's really cool is that I guessed who the murderer was right at the start, doggedly stood by my first guess, and I turned out to be right! That's neve [...]

    Actual rating is 3.5 stars.This book is part of a series but each one can be read as a stand alone novel. In this one, the main character, Poirot, is traveling on an airplane where an unexplained murder has occurred. Poirot is on the case to try to identify the culprit.This was my introduction to this writer's works and I enjoyed it. Obviously I have heard of her and I had a general idea that her books were of the mystery variety. The aspect that stood out for me was the characters. While I enjo [...]

    كريستي ذكية بجعل القارئ تائهاً بين الأدلة غير المهمة، ناسياً التفاصيل الصغيرة التي هي الخيوط الأساسية للوصول إلى المجرم. في كل فصل تعتقد أنك ستتوصل إلى المجرم الحقيقي ثم ما تلبث أن تكفَّ نظرك عنه لتكتشف لاحقاً أن القاتل لا علاقة له بكل تخيلاتك رغم قناعتك فيها خلال قرائتك.متا [...]

    Vintage Poirot: starts with a closed set, continues with a range of disguises, ends with everyone in the library, post-script involves a wedding. These things are meant to be cliched and obvious by now, but I was still surprised.It's been a rubbish couple of days. Agatha makes everything better.

    مضى الكثير على آخر مرة قرأت فيها رواية لها، وفي الواقع كان سبب ذلك هو أنني لم أعد أجد الروايات التي تترجمها دار النشر التي اعتدت على قراءة سلسلتهم “دار الأجيال” . أما دور النشر الأخرى فترجمتها ركيكة نوعاً ما، ولا أحب أن أجد مصطلحات أو جمل مرتبطة حرفياً بالترجمة الأنجليزية.عم [...]

    well ,Agatha has written more than 60 novels, she lets her personal style shine and emerge ,,,there are often similar structure. a murder is committed, the detective ( using his little grey cells to solve the mystery )analyses the evidence, then reveals the truth in the presence of all the assembled wittnessesagatha chooses the exact words to convey meaning, she does not challenge us with the vocabulary, because she draws more attention to the plot( having every suspect be an equal murderer, is [...]

    I absolutely adored this book, the mystery was one that had rarely been a focal point in the other Poirot novels. The construction of the murder was unique and the clique at the end of the plot would get anyone.Originally I was intruigued by the story line of this book after watching a Doctor Who Episode. (The Unicorn and the Wasp). The comparisons to each plot line are there and though there is no giant wasp like the one in Doctor Who the novel is truly a remarkable piece of literature as are a [...]

    One of Agatha's Best efforts With an ending you won't see coming! At least I didn't. Also the reader is treated to a fun and novel setting for the time an airplane.

    For a while, I was scared that I read most of the Poirot series, but this book has given me hope that I still have many more left to read(: Death in the Clouds is particularly interesting for me because it involves air travel.Unfortunately, poor M. Poirot suffers from air-sickness, which is why he was asleep when the murder of Mdm Giselle occurred. In fact, the murder weapon, a blowpipe, was found stuffed in his seat, which is why our dear detective was suspected by the jury! Thankfully, the cor [...]

    Death in the Clouds is a classic locked room mystery - a murder is committed in a space occupied by thirteen people, yet no-one witnesses the crime and all of them could conceivably have a motive for the death. Christie excels at creating such puzzles and telling them in an engaging, often witty voice, that is all show and no tell. The secret is clever plotting that slowly reveals how various elements of the murder were committed and why, but which keep as many suspects in the frame as possible [...]

    deserves the 5 stars !!! this one was such an excellent enjoyable mystery by my most favorite author ever, "Agatha Christie"one of my very favorite things about Agatha Christie is that when she said anyone could be the murderer under the right circumstances, she MEAN IT !!so Madame Giselle was found dead on her seat in the aeroplane, a mark on her neck made the passengers to think that a bee stung her which caused a heart attack then death, but Hercule Poirot found the real cause of the death wh [...]

    Standard Christie. Includes delightful dialogue, such as: "What an extraordinarily rum little beggar."I always learn some obscure English expression when I read a Christie novel. In this one, a character complains that one of her clients has "a voice like a corncrake." I found out that a corncrake is a drab little bird and that "the 'crex-crex' sound of the corncrake has been compared with two cheese-graters rubbed together, producing a sound so monotonous as to qualify the bird as the world's w [...]

    Death in the Clouds (Hercule Poirot #12)این اثر با سه عنوان متفاوت ترجمه و به نشر سپرده شده است. یک: «مرگ، نقطه ی پایان»، دو: «مرگ فرجام کار است»، سه: «مرگ در میان ابرها». نقل از متن کتاب: «نگاهش از روی دره در آن پایین، رو به خط نقره ای نیل کشید و فراتر رفت». پایان نقل از متن کتاب. ا. شربیانی

    This is my third Agatha Christie audiobook in a week!Unfortunately I didn't enjoy this one as much as the others. Though I didn't completely guess who the murderer was, this is the first Agatha Christie novel I've read where I guessed several of the clues and twists.This definitely isn't one of Christie's books that I would recommend necessarily but it was entertaining. I'll still be carrying on with the rest of her works.

    How do you murder somebody on a plane with a blowpipe and nobody notice well I had no idea and now I do! This was a fantastic murder mystery that had you thinking and confused until the very end! 5 Stars!

    Am citit undeva ca Agatha Christie îsi ura personajul Hercule Poirot. Je m'en fiche, eu sînt îndragostita lulea de obnoxious little guy! :)

    I really liked the way Christie tackled the book and the problems and its problem. I really enjoyed the questions asked as no one would think they would be important even though at the end we realise their importance and their role in the story. Although this is true, I think that this field could have been improve by giving it more emphasis and by spending more time on each question. I think that this would have made the book much better and it would make it so that the book would have more lif [...]

    4 StarsLots of twists and turns. I had suspicions, but I was a little off the mark and didn't see the whole picture. How do you shoot a poisoned dart into someones neck on an Aeroplane, when no one saw it??? (this is not a spoiler).This was a fun romp; and Hercule Poirot is again at his best. He was much more prominent in this story than the last.
