December Read. Part 1. Elephants Can Remember
This month I'm reading "Elephants Can Remember". This is one of the books by Agatha Christie. I've enjoyed reading books by her for months. This one I liked because of the strangeness. It pretty much begins with a conversation crime author Ariadne Oliver has with a complete stranger. The stranger asks of a special favour. She wants Ariadne to solv an unsolved case. An old girfriend of Ariadne was found shot together with her husband and these were the parents of a woman whom might marry this strangers son.
Puzzeled and upset Ariadne goes to detective and friend Hercule Poirot for advice. She visits person after person to see what they rememeber about the womans parents. Hercule has decided to help.
The story is so far told through Ariadne. Maybe all of it is. It is nice to see the situations through her eyes as author and friend of the detective.
And the book is a universe of its own. It's cool that one can create a book around a conversation. I've read half of the story and so far it is good! And that book cover is nice too!
