5.0 von 5 Sternen Miss Marple succeeds again!, 2. Dezember 1999
This is a great mystery where a young bride is looking for a home in England. She selects a house that is strangely familiar to her; it's as if she has lived here before without knowing it. Her search for the truth behind her own childhood as well as the history of the house brings to light an old crime that was never satisfcatorily resolved. However, digging up the past can be dangerous especially when it causes a murderer who had escaped detection to strike again....Christie was clearly fascinated by the concept of revisiting past crimes that remained unsolved or where the wrong party may have been found guilty and looking at the crimes with fresh eyes - you see this in… Mehr dazu

I first read this book several years ago and was thrilled that it was finally made into a movie by Deepa Mehta. "Earth" is a great film but I don't think even it can do do justice to this amazing book. My mother's family is from Lahore and came to the Indian side of the border as refugees in 1947 so this book has a very personal meaning for me. It is a wonderful depiction of growing up as a child in Lahore and very authentic. I thought the love story between Ayah and Ice Candy Man was incredibly sad. Ultimately, she was unable to return his love and unable to forgive him for kidnapping her and forcing her to work as a dancing girl before marrying her. My grandparents… Mehr dazu
