Reading time: The secret adversary

Original Title: The secret adversary (1922)

Author: Agatha Christie

Goodreads synopsis

Tommy and Tuppence are young, in love… and flat broke. Restless for excitement, they decide to embark on a daring business scheme: Young Adventurers Ltd.—”willing to do anything, go anywhere.” But they get more than they bargained for when their first assignment for the sinister Mr. Whittington draws them into a diabolical conspiracy.

It isn’t long before they find themselves plunged into more danger than they ever could have imagined—a danger that could put an abrupt end to their business…and their lives

My opinion (review)

Let me begin by saying that some books will have an analysis part and others won’t, there isn’t a clear cut reason for it, mostly based on how I interpreted a story. So this one I read a long time ago, ok I read it around christmas time last year.

Ok now to the review. I love Agatha Christie, however, this wasn’t one of my favorites. It is a nice story, and has a good plot twist, but I didn’t really like Tuppence or Tommy as characters. I guess I am used to the wonderful Hércules Poirot, and these lovely couple seemed a bit to childish in comparison. As for the mystery in this book, it was good I won’t lie, you keep asking yourself and trying to guess who is the mysterious Mr.Brown. And that is what makes the twist so good, it delivers.

Overall I would recommend it, but if I had to recommend an Agatha Christie book this wouldn’t be my first choice.
