    I guess it would have been awesome if the person didn’t say who did it in the reviews.

    In most mysteries, I guess the murderer. In this one, I had no clue until the end. Some of the other reviewers seem confused as to the perpetrator, but I don't see how it is confusing. The story is pretty straight forward, and gets really interesting at the end. The writing is amazing, and had me entwined in the pages.
  • One of best mysteries of all time

    By William Porter
    Agatha Christie is the master of the English country-house murder, and 'Murder of Roger Ackroyd' is one of the best plotted and best executed of her masterpieces. Entertaining read that will give your little gray cells at least a gentle massage.

  • Best Mystery EVER

    By TrippQ
    This book is simply outstanding. The whole plot has many turning points, but the ending has an unbelievable twist. I won't give any spoilers like some other comments, but I recommend paying close attention at the times given at the beginning (i know it is slow) if you want to understand the ending better. This is my new favorite book and recommend it to anyone. These books were written in the 1930s I believe so some things are harder to understand but these iBooks have a feature where you can highlight a word and choose for it to search for the word in a dictionary. <<<< very helpful. Guarantee this book will keep you guessing
  • Twist!

    I was told to read this book as fast as possible. It wasn't hard to do. A real page turner with a great plot twist surprising for the time period in which it was written.
