    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

    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.

    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.

    Very much so enjoyed the book, but to much use of the 'little grey cells' for me. Also, the ending confuses me. Did doctor Shepard kill mr. Ackroyd?
  • Best one

    By all of the above.
    although every agatha christie novel is almost impossible to predict, this one takes the cake. cleverly written. this novel will change the way you see the genre of mystery. honestly. not only is it a revolutionary case, but it's interesting to follow and watch the different plotlines unravel. five stars. this is a must read. ps - dont read this book first, though! being the wildest and most revolutionary, it will make all the others seem too plain, and thats saying something!
