Ordeal by reading

Well, even the great ones have to fail every once in a while.

Agatha Christie’s Ordeal by Innocence is certainly an ordeal, but not the way she meant it.

Unfortunately, it’s a character-driven, psychological story. And since her characters are, as usual, entirely 2-dimensional, they all end up saying the same things over and over (or having other people say the same things about them over) and over as a way of “showing” their character.


Do not read this book.

I am a misanthrope. No one ever believes me, but this seems to prove my point.
