Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Secret Adversary (Tommy & Tuppence Chronology) (Taschenbuch)
The "The Secret Adversary" by Agatha Christie has some shortcomings:
(1) The story is very naive, in real live Tommy would have been dead after the first half and Tuppence at the end of the book.
(2) The dialogues between the two protagonists are very old fashioned.
But, once you have consented to these shortcommings it is worth while reading on:
(A) The story is very exciting. I could not sleep at night because I wanted to know how the story went on. I read wherever I could, in the cantine, in the bus, in the waiting queue of a shop, on the loo, etc.
(B) The dramatic fluency of the plot is perfect. Every chapter has its own meaning and all clues fit at the end of the book.
(C) Finally, I was deeply fascinated by the solution. And, moreover, I learned how the name Tuppence was pronounced :-)
