Death On The Nile

This Agatha Christie classic was made into a movie not once, but twice! The latest Death On The Nile movie came out just this year.

I haven't seen the movies but I thought the book was just okay. The plot was fairly interesting, but there were too many characters, at least for my flimsy mind, to keep track of. The ending was absolutely incredible, however, so I'm glad I didn't put it down.

I was hoping to get some understanding of Egyptian culture along with the story, but alas, the title is slightly misleading. The whole thing could have taken place on any river near you and the plot would have been exactly the same. It does take place some 100 years ago, so you do get some historical context, but not a ton.
