READ Murder at the Vicarage

Lonel was found shot dead in the clergyman’s study But as Miss Marple soon discovers the whole village seems to have had a motive to kill Colonel Prother. Fiddledesticks How could you not enjoy a book where the word fiddledesticks is used I m a fan of Agatha Christie I read her a lot when I was much much younger But I don t remember most of the books I read So every now and then I plan to pick up one of her books and indulge And what a better place to start that the first in the Miss Marple seriesMurder at the Vicarage tells the story of well a murder in the vicarage St Mary Mead is a sleep town where not much happens However the ladies of the town know everyone s business and it s routinely gossiped about Leonard Clement is the vicar and his wife Griselda well let s just say she s not much of the lady of the vicarage house She doesn t cook doesn t clean drives her husband mad but she loves Len and he truly loves her despite the big age gap of the two Anyway Len returns to vicarage one night after being called away to find none other than Colonel Protheroe dead Murdered I doubt many of the townsfolk are upset by this news as Colonel Protheroe was not well liked and was uite mean But seems there are uite a number of people who might have wanted him dead So murderenter some bumbling police who provide great entertainment but no chance of solving this crime But luckily there is Miss Marple with her keen eye well that comes along with being a nosy busy body Miss Marple is uite sharp and along with the vicar she works to solve this crimeWhat a wonderful story I grabbed the audio and the narrator Richard E Grant did an awesome job I loved his narration and can still hear the voice of the vicar in my head I liked the characters of Len Clement and his wife Griselda I m happy these two appear again in later Miss Marple books But I had to knock it just a bit hence 4 stars It was so predictable I guessed early on what happened Though it did not take away my enjoyment of this read Also there were a lot of characters to keep track of And if I m going to be totally honestI prefer Poirot over Marple But an entertaining read and great audio narration I look forward to my next Christie book and narrations by Mr Grant A uick fun read for any Agatha Christie fan
