Nuori Jack Argyle on saanut elinkautisen vankeustuomion Oikeudenkäynnissä on osoitettu että hän on surmannut äitinsä hiilihangolla Puolen vuoden vankilassa This Review ✍️ Blog 📖 Twitter 🐦 Instagram 📷 “Justice is after all in the hands of men and men are fallible” It is no big secret that I am such a fan of Agatha Christie and I pick up one of her books whenever I am in the mood for a good mystery thriller from an author I trust I have been reading much fantasy lately I read exactly 20 consecutive fantasy books before I decided to take a break and read something different I am glad I did because Agatha did not disappoint once againThis is my 11th book by the author so I still have a long way to go with her books but it is also a good thing because I still have much to explore I picked this one on a whim while browsing the mystery section at the local bookstore I just read pneumonia and Doctor in the synopsis and was immediately sold It was actually different from what I expected and it was not a medical story The plot is basically that a guy who has died in prison from pneumonia is cleared by an alibi one year after his death That means the case is opened again and all the family are suspected once again as they have motivesSome authors write good characters but Agatha write real people I don’t just read her books I live in them I am also fascinated by the fact that they were written decades ago this one was written 60 years ago and I am still astonished by the technology and stuff that were available back then There is usually a formula to Christie’s novels and some people don’t like it but I actually love it “How can I go on living here and suspecting everybody ?” The writing in this one was as good as I am used to I just love how simple straight to the point her novels are This novel is less than 300 pages with all the elements for a good novel contained within Another thing I like is that the language used is not as complicated as in classics but still different from the way we speak today The dialogue and the way people act is actually not that different after one century from her first novels Agatha is also not the kind of author who will hold back from speaking her mind in her novels and I just adore that she described men and women in such a fascinating way throughout this novel once even comparing mothers to cats and their kittens “Men they never think” “That’s what you might call the normal pattern of female life I’ve seen many girls and women with strong maternal instincts keen on getting married but mainly though they mayn’t uite know it themselves—because of their urge to motherhood And the babies come; they’re happy and satisfied Life goes back into proportion for them They can take an interest in their husbands and in the local affairs and in the gossip that’s going round and of course in their children But it’s all in proportion The maternal instinct in a purely physical sense is satisfied you see The plot was interesting and it is the kind of books I want to consume very fast just to know who done it I love some family drama and the dynamics in this book were pretty fucked up as shown at the beginning of the story when Jacko’s innocence is announced and the family does not take the news happily The funny thing is that Agatha managed to wrap every thing up and end the book on a comical way after all the dark things the family went throughSummary As good as Agatha’s other books if you are a fan and haven’t read this one then you probably should and if you haven’t tried her books then what are you d

text Ordeal by Innocence

Ordeal by InnocenceOlon jälkeen Jack kuolee keuhkokuumeeseen Argylen perhettä painanut raskas taakka on poissa – kunnes kuvaan ilmaantuu tuntematon tohtori CalgaryCalgary todis “How can I go on living here and suspecting everybody ?”I usually avoid comparing movies to books as in comparing apples to orangesbut since I graced my teeth on this Christie story first through Prime's version of the haunting tale I can't help but constantly compare when reading and reviewing I knew when watching the three part series that Christie would not have been racy enough to put in the themes of child abuse abortion and molestation in her book and I was right when reading this to check it out Some of the stuff may have almost been implied and while took liberties when creating the film I can see where they get a little of their source materialHonestly the movie told a stronger story because it focused on characterization and dysfunction so than its predecessor One of the biggest changes was of the witness himself who the movie version chose to make a weaker and mentally confused character versus the self assured professional character in this book The ending is drastically different and less demented Rating the book by itself the plot is slower moving due to so many points of view detecting We have chapters devoted to the police talking amongst themselves the witness speaking to the police the witness speaking to the family and the family talking amongst themselves The family is the heart of the story so the scenes with them are the most interesting There aren't really many clues It's of a study with a weird family when the mother took in orphaned children and tried to force their love by giving them good lives Seeing the way the father felt ignored the way the mother kept filling her house with children to try to get her heart fulfilled and how the children went from scheming to resentful was fascinating I don't remember her other books delving as deeply into the taboo of adoption and twisted mother control but Dame Christie has a knack for digging deep into hidden dark heart of society with her booksIt's definitely worth a read for Christie fans but the story does falter at times in the interest level because of the lack of direction on who the detective really is and who is really in control of the narration for this book

read Ordeal by Innocence mobi  Paperback · agatha christie ✓ [PDF / Epub] ✅ Ordeal by Innocence By Agatha Christie – Nuori Jack Argyle on saanut elinkautisen vankeustuomion Oikeudenkäynnissä on osoitettu että hän on surmannut äitinsä hiilihangolla Puolen vuoden vankilassTaa että Jack on ollut syytön Pojan maine on puhdistettu mutta asia on samalla saanut vakavan käänteen Ellei syyllinen ole ollut Jack se on joku toinen Kuka? ‘All right It’s your say so–and you’re sticking to it Jacko didn’t kill her Very well then–who did kill her? You haven’t thought about that one have you? Think about it now Think about it–and then you’ll begin to see what you’re doing to us all’I've been reading away on my Agatha Christie project for a while and although the books tend to with exceptions follow a formula there are other issues or themes that Christie discusses in the different books This could be anything from discussing morality and justice as she does in Orient Express and And Then There Were None to superstitions as she does in Endless NightShe's not always successful with this in the sense that she makes a valid argument or finds common ground with the sensibilities of her readers tho maybe she was successful with the latter in her own time but she does pick up topics for discussion that have nothing to do with the murder plot itselfIn Ordeal by Innocence Christie dedicates her side discussion to the topic of adoption ‘All tragic histories in a way’ said Philip ‘All poor unwanted little devils’‘Yes’ said Leo ‘That’s what made Rachel feel so passionately about them all She was determined to make them feel wanted to give them a real home be a real mother to them’‘It was a fine thing to do’ said Philip‘Only–only it can never work out exactly as she hoped it might’ said Leo ‘It was an article of faith with her that the blood tie didn’t matter But the blood tie does matter you know There is usually something in one’s own children some kink of temperament some way of feeling that you recognize and can understand without having to put into words You haven’t got that tie with children you adopt One has no instinctive knowledge of what goes on in their minds You judge them of course by yourself by your own thoughts and feelings but it’s wise to recognize that those thoughts and feelings may be very widely divergent from theirs’‘You understood that I suppose all along’ said Philip‘I warned Rachel about it’ said Leo ‘but of course she didn’t believe it Didn’t want to believe it She wanted them to be her own children’Having read her points it seems Christie argues that adoptive parents can never have the same bond with their children as natural parents and that all adopted children will carry a chip of rejection on their shoulder I am not going to argue for nor against this thesis but I do acknowledge that there is a lot of controversy in Christie's statements on the subject of adoption in this book There is no indication of what made Christie bring this up other than to have a side discussion in the book but to me these side issues however controversial or even offensive they may be are an aspect of what I enjoy about the books I guess Christie's use of the uncertainty about familial trust as the major drivers of plot in this particular mystery makes it uite similar to Appointment with Death but family set up is completely different in this story It has been fun to watch the mystery unravel knowing that the similarity with her other books is just one of the red herrings that Christie is so famous for Who is it who said “Nothing is ever settled until–”’ ‘“Until it is settled right”’ Miss Vaughan finished for him ‘Kipling’
