"A (wo)man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of (her)his life in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of beautiful God has implanted in the human soul."- Goethe

Another Entertaining Mystery

Although there isn't any literary value in Thirteen for Dinner, by Agatha Christie, it is still entertaining and worth listening to. (By literary value, I mean the existence of multiple levels of interpretation and understanding, well-developed imagery, meaningful metaphors, and analogies.)

It was pleasant to get caught up in the plot and fun to guess who the murderer was. I really was guessing the whole time, too!

Most of all, I can't help but think how interesting a character Christie herself must have been to write such classy murder mysteries. I imagine she was a lot like a family friend we have who is spunky and quick-witted regardless of her age and arthritis. Do you imagine Agatha Christie to be old and spunky like I do?

Happy reading!
