    • Although I was certain that I had read all of the Miss Marple novels, I really cannot recall having read this before. This novel sees Miss Marple meeting up with an old friend. Ruth Van Rydock and her sister, Carrie Louise, knew Jane Marple as a young girl, when they were visiting Florence. Now Ruth is returning to America, but she confesses that she is concerned about her sister. Carrie Louise, like Ruth, has been married several times. Her latest husband is Lewis Serrocold, an idealist who run [...]


    • This is a very strong 3 stars as I quite enjoyed this Agatha Christie quickie!Having said that, They Do It with Mirrors reads like a Christie-by-numbers novel, written by rote like a facsimile of previous work with just a few of the words rearranged. The characters, the setting, the plot and the outcome, it's all been done before. I haven't read too many Miss Marple's. The old dear and the settings/situations she's placed in are quite quaint and not entirely my cup of tea. Having said that, I wo [...]


    • ومع تقديم مشروع تخرجي أمس وانتهاء فترة الحياة الجامعية الى غير رجعة اعتقد ان البدء فى التعرف على اسلوب كاتب جديد سيكون خيار مناسب للغاية ، تاخرت تلك التجربة كثيرا ولكن حسنا لابأس ها قد حان الوقت للتعرف على سيدة الجريمة والالغاز بسم الله نبدء :)حسنا انتهيت منها في اقل من يومين [...]


    • Sure, they do it with mirrors. Apparently in 1952, they could even do it by telephone. By which I refer to phoning it in, because this isn’t Christie at her best. It isn’t even Marple at her best. Still, They Do It with Mirrors is a diverting read, a quick Christie satisfier.We begin with Miss Marple enjoying a few moments with a dear friend from boarding school days. Ruth now lives in America, but her sister lives in England, and after visiting her, Ruth has a suspicion something isn’t ri [...]


    • عزيزى القارىء, عندما تقرا عدة روايات او كتب مخيبة للأمال و تصاب بحالة من الاحباط -تماما كما حدث معى-لن ينتشلك من يأسك الا رواية من روايات أجاثا كريستى مهما كان تقدم سنك و مهما كانت خبراتك فى الحياة, سيتم خداعك امام عينك بحيل بسيطة و ساذجة الحبكة أكثر من رائعة


    • “We’re all mad, dear lady,” he said as he ushered her in through the door. “That’s the secret of existence. We’re all a little mad.”Another very good murder mystery. This one was perhaps a little light on the plot but on the other hand focused a lot more on the characters and their motivations. It also felt very much like theatre, which in light of the context made perfect sense. We have our cast of suspects all gathered in one setting, an old English family country home, and more [...]



    • Book 11 for the Miss Marple challenge. Miss Marple finds herself in a very different setting, a juvenile delinquents home/college when she is asked by old friend Ruth Van Rydock to look into the situation of her sister Carrie Louise. Carrie Louise, also Miss Marple’s friend from her school days in Italy, lives in an old Victorian mansion and her husband Lewis Serrocold runs a centre for juveniles focusing on rehabilitation. Carrie Louise has been married twice before and her relations, childre [...]


    • 2.5A thing about Christie's Miss Marple novels that I don't like is that some of them (though not many, fortunately) give off this impression of laziness, which I found particularly unpleasant as I usually end not knowing what to make of them. This is precisely what happened with They Do It With Mirrors. I found it lazy, and I was disappointed. Not one of Christie's best.


    • Ms. Marple spends some time with an old friend of hers, and stumbles on a murder. There wasn't a lot of extraneous stuff going on in this story (unlike Nemesis) and you get a sense of the various characters around Ms. Marple's friend. In retrospect, I realized that Christie had laid out some pretty big clues pointing to the baddie.


    • The title is the only clue to the mystery you need - if you read it correctly, that is."They do it with mirrors" is what magicians do, figuratively speaking - misdirection. This is what murderers do, too.And mystery writers.


    • This is the 1st book of agatha christie where I was able to guess the culprit from the start. Only the why of the crime was a surprise.


    • دومین کتابی بود که از آگاتا کریستی میخوندم و حتی از "جسدی در کتابخانه" هم پیچیده تر بود و اینبار احساس میکردم که تعداد کاراکتر هاش بیشتر از کتاب قبلی هست و یکم گیج میشدم ولی این پیچیدگی اش و اینکه تا لحظات آخر نمیتونستم حدس بزنم مغز متفکر قتل های داستان کیه هم برای خودش واقعا هی [...]


    • I think I've come to the conclusion that I prefer Poirot books to Marple ones, but this one started off really well! One of the reasons I usually like Poirot better is that he's usually more involved in the narrative. Miss Marple usually sidles in at the last moment and mostly does her work off page. But here, she was present from page one. Unfortunately, I just lost my motivation about halfway through as the mystery itself didn't really hold my attention.Miss Marple's childhood friend Ruth Van [...]


    • Unfortunately, I spoiled this book by watching serie Miss Marple, so I already knew the murder, and basically almost the entire story (but there were some differences in book, that were changed in serie, small ones), and the entire magic was gone!But, anyway, I loved that character Edgar Lawson, because he was supposed to be a schizophrenic. However, my absolute favourite was Walter Hudd! This somewhat comes from the magnificent character in the serie (played by Elliot Cowan - note the coffee sc [...]


    • An exciting and absorbing Miss Marple mystery!Miss Marple is tipped off that an old friend might be in trouble fact she may be being poisoned. It's time for a visit to the country! (Cue huge country house in fog and everyone is bonkers yeah!)But then someone gets shot and Miss Marple has to unravel all the clues through the smoke and mirrors.Highly recommended for cosy mystery fans everywhere.


    • A book I just don't remember reading and another great example of Miss Marple's expertise.Again a great story by Agatha Christie, with some wonderful characters and an intricate plot that I certainly never guessed.Well worth reading if one has never read a Miss Marple before. Lets be honest they have all been good so far, and only 3 to go, (sad face).


    • لأول مرة أكتشف القاتل منذ وقوع الجريمة، هل لأن القاتل دوما هو أبعد من يكون من ساحة الإتهام أم أن الحبكة لم تكن كما يبدو، لا أدري ولكني لم أنبهر هنا


    • I generally love Agatha Christie, and I tend to read her books in one sitting, but that didn't happen with this one.It's a Marple novel, and I generally do prefer other detectives (it just frustrates me that part of the solution is based on those comparisons with someone on St. Mary Mead), but I don't think that's enough to explain why this book failed to captivate me the way others have.I think part of it was that I just didn't care about the characters all that much. I especially didn't care a [...]


    • How ironic. When I have finally settled with myself that it's quite a useless thing to secondguess Agatha Christie's mysteries, it does come as a big surprised that I did guess it right this time. Even though so many smokescreens were thrown in the way, I just can't shake off my suspicion of the suspect. Does this means that I am getting better at reading the clues? ;-)


    • Λατρεύω της Μις Μάρπλ το διάβασα πολύ γρήγορα αλλά είχα καταλάβει ποιος ήταν ο/η δολοφόνος αλλά όχι το κίνητρο του/της :)


    • This is only the sixth Miss Marple that Agatha Christie wrote, like many of the early ones it is perhaps a little less polished, a little more exploitative than they became after Christie's characters and writing style were more set. Personally I like the earlier ones better and this was a great example of that early writing, with an English manor house, two generations and their different view points, the perspicuity of Miss Marple and the gimmick - that is kind of predicted by the title.


    • أول رواية أقراها لآجاثا كريستى النهاية خيبت آمالى كانت سريعة وغير مفهومة الدوافع


    • While I enjoyed this entry in the Miss Marple series, it was just "good" not great as some of Christie's are. Given Miss Marple's oft pronounced maxim of never believe anything anyone says without confirmation, she seemed (view spoiler)[to take Lewis Serrocold's statements at face value for far too long (hide spoiler)].Joan Hickson's narration was unfortunately spoiled for me by the poor shape of the CDs I borrowed from the library. Perhaps if that hadn't been the case, I might have gone up to 4 [...]


    • Though I was a bit apprehensive to pick up this book as it is the 6th in a series, I got to say I didn't really have trouble following save for some St Mary Mead references here and there.This was my first Miss Marple story and it certainly wouldn't be the last. But I think I would need some time to get used to the sweet old Miss Marple. She's a detective in the most unconventional sense possible, she can be easily dismissed as a silly old lady, and Miss Jane Marple is smart enough to use that t [...]


    • I've recently finished this Marple story and I certainly have mixed feelings.While what I would call the "first part", that is, until the main murder is committed, is long and tedious, the second one moves on faster and the end is really fast paced. I found this aspect reflected in the chapters; being long the first ones and becoming shorter approaching the end. In this sense, I believe that this tale could be told in a fewer pages or even maybe a short story.On the other hand, there are some as [...]


    • While I have read dozens of books with Hercule Poirot, I haven't read that many with Miss Marple, so I'm trying to remedy that. I do like her: the scenes where everyone assumes she is a quiet and harmless old lady are always very funny. They Do It With Mirrors is a short and fun mystery where, as usual, the solution and the murderer are definitely shocking and quite impossible to guess. Actually, I did have my suspicions about who did it, and I was right, but I only had vague ideas. The solution [...]


    • As I said in my review for "Death in the Nile", Agatha Christie is one of my favorite authors. They do it with mirrors is a dance of intrigue and mystery that will confuse you with hints, warps and tricks to an ending that the British writer always, always will get you surprised.Spanish version: Como ya dije en la mi review para "Asesinato en el Nilo", Agatha Christie es una de mis escritoras favoritas. El truco de los espejos es un baile de intriga y misterio que como su excelente título descr [...]


    • Classic Agatha Christie, a good mindless read that you can easily guess the ending to because you know that Christie picks the only ending that makes no sense, and tries to make it sound like it's utterly obvious. This is what I love about the woman. I like to pretend that the Miss Marple series is actually the memoir of a schizophrenic old maid living in an insane asylum; this is the only way any of it ever makes sense. Did I just piss off every Agatha Christie fan? Oh well


    • I've been really enjoying reading the Miss Marple books with the Reading the Detectives group, but this one struck me as pretty weak. (Originally I gave it 3 stars, but, thinking it over, I've knocked this down to 2.) Once again leaving St Mary Mead, Miss Marple goes to stay with an old friend, Carrie Louise, after vague hints that she may be in danger. To my mind, the setting is unrealistic, as are many of the characters. Carrie and her husband run a somewhat unbelievable private reformatory, w [...]
