    • The Man in the Brown Suit (Colonel Race #1), Agatha ChristieThe Man in the Brown Suit is a work of detective fiction by Agatha Christie, first published in the UK by The Bodley Head on 22 August 1924 and in the US by Dodd, Mead and Company later in the same year. Orphan Anne Beddingfeld, in search of adventure, follows the clue in a note from the pocket of a murder victim. Her journey takes her on an ocean voyage from London to Africa, and finally to a lost island, on the trail of stolen diamond [...]


    • It is really a hard life. Men will not be nice to you if you are not good-looking, and women will not be nice to you if you are.My first encounter with Agathie Christie's work was not a disappointment - although, perhaps, it is not one of her most popular books, it was certainly an enjoyable entry into this genre. Think Africa and diamonds and adventure and mystery - welcome to 'The Man in The Brown Suit'. What I liked: ✔︎-The fact that it was set in South Africa. Everybody's heard the famou [...]


    • Before there was Miss Jane Marple and very shortly after the birth of Hercule Poirot, there was Anne Beddingfield, the plucky heroine of The Man in the Brown Suit. Dame Agatha Christie included Hercule Poirot in 45 books and Miss Jane Marple in more than a dozen. Even Tommy and Tuppence Beresford appear in four novels and a collection of short stories. But Jane Beddingfield appears only in The Man in the Brown Suit (although another character in this novel, the debonair Colonel Race, went on to [...]


    • A great read. As always, Christie is a master of the crime/detective genre, managing to make this a fun and exciting romp without decreasing any of the mystery and sense of the sinister. All of the characters had their own charms, but Colonel Race really made the book, even though he seemed to stay in the backdrop a lot of the time. I must say I felt rather sorry for his lack of luck with Anne, but I'm looking forward to revisiting his character in the later books. Anne, although not the most li [...]



    • 4.5*“I had the firm conviction that, if I went about looking for adventure, adventure would meet me halfway. It is a theory of mine that one always gets what one wants.”The Man in the Brown Suit, or Anna the Adventurous, was published as a serial in 1923, and is completely over the top! Instead of our ‘usual’ detective story, we have a thriller, involving an international crime organisation with a secret arch-villain at its head, although there is of course murder and mystery. All starts [...]


    • My first Christie without Poirot or Marple and I still enjoyed it, much to my surprise. Anne was a feisty, independent minded protagonist. She was a bit of an insta detective though. A good range of supporting characters. It was also interesting to read about South Africa and Rhodesia: contemporary fiction at the time, and now historical fiction. You wouldn’t know that this is one of Christie’s earlier novels.


    • Sometimes it's easy to get distracted reading Agatha Christie. You get used to the idea that she's the creator of Poirot, of Marple, even of Tommy and Tuppence. Those characters can almost become more important than the novel itself, and when you read a Christie that doesn't have the distraction of a famous detective creation you can be surprised by just how good Christie can be. To be fair, those other novels with Poirot in are pretty good too but this one struck me that I was just enjoying The [...]


    • Forget the mystery, forget the complex scheme hatched by a mysterious criminal mastermind, Agatha Christie’s ‘The Man in the Brown Suit’ is really a spoof. Written in 1924 it has the suspense serial, the kind with feisty, flapper heroines at their centre, directly in its sights. But hang on, it's more than that: this was actually written in serialised form as ‘Anne the Adventuress’ and so right from the off it is both satirising the over the top adventure story whilst wholeheartedly be [...]


    • This is one of Agatha Christie's best stand alone novels - part mystery, part thriller and part espionage story - which takes us from a London tube station to revolution in Africa. It begins with Anne Beddingfeld, the daughter of a professor who longs for adventure. She spends her day trying to placate creditors and longing to 'step out' with a young man. When her father dies, she takes an opportunity to go to London, where, quite by chance, she witnesses the death of a young man at a tube stati [...]


    • كان هذا الكتاب هدية من صديقتي :) إن كنت تحب الروايات - البوليسيه فأنصحك به وإن كنت لا تحب فـ أعطه فرصه لأجاثا كريستي أسلوب رائع في السرد :)


    • Upon rereading this books (some ten years after initially doing so) I had vague recollections of who the "bad guy" was, how some of the arcs played out, and that I loved the book!Even though I remembered the gist of who was good and who was bad, I was still questioning myself, "Wait, *IS* that character the bad one?" as I reread. But, in true Christie fashion, she explains it all so clearly by the end that I find myself wondering how I missed the clues early on.This is one of my favorite Christi [...]


    • الى الان، اعتبر هذه الرواية من افضل ما كتبت اغاثا!في هذه الرواية خرجت اغاثا ع المألوف، فأسهبت بذكر تفاصيل الشخصيات والاماكن حتى انني قد انسى وجود جريمة تحتاج للحل.------بطلة الرواية هي: آن ليست اي شخصية معروفة في سلسلة اغاثاآن هي فتاة تعيش مع والدها العالم، وهو بعشق العلوم لدرج [...]


    • This read very differently from the large majority of Christie's work - it sounded like a cross between Christie and Wodehouse. I laughed almost the entire way through, even if it was a bit too silly in parts. Loved it.

    • أخيرا قرأت الرواية التي غيرت فكرتي عن أجاثا لم أتوقع المجرم أبداجريمة قتل لامرأة في فيلا بلندن ووفاة طبيعية لرجل في محطة القطار لكن الأسباب غامضة تقوم البطلة بالغوص في غمار اللغز بعد ورقة تجدها عند قتيل المحطة لتكشف أن الموضوع متعلق بألماس مسروق وتكون دائرة الاتهام موجهة ع [...]


    • 3,75/5Nada fuera de este mundo, pero me dejó un muy buen sabor de boca y recuerdos que atesoraré con cariño.Este es el tercer libro que leo de Agatha Christie, y uno que disfruté muchísimo. Sin duda esta mujer sabe cómo escribir historias atrapantes que se te pasen volando; es cierto que a veces lo dejaba abandonado por unos días, pero puedo decir con certeza que, cuando lo retomaba, disfrutaba de cada página.Tengo que admitir que soy medio lela para los misterios; empezando con que no e [...]


    • I savour Agatha Christie in order of her releases. I don’t identify ahead what pertains to which series, nor watch any films lest I be wholly surprised by my journey; 90 years after “The Man In The Brown Suit”, came out. The gift this gives me is that each time I open the front page, it is a treat to discover which heroes shall escort me. Agatha experimented with these first four; three are unrelated. This one has nothing to do with her two famous sleuths. I was blissfully unprepared for t [...]


    • A 1924 mystery/romance by Dame Agatha Christie - who knew!? Spunky Anne Beddingfield - the young (over age 18), unmarried daughter of a scientist - loses her father. Finding herself "an orphan," she chooses to use her pittance of an inheritance to book a berth on a ship to South Africa in pursuit of adventure - trying to solve the mystery of the man in the brown suit. With smarts, persistence, dumb luck, and the help/hindrance of new-found friends, Miss Beddingfield survives several attempts on [...]

    • One of Agatha Christie's exciting adventure novels, with one of her young adventuress heroines coming through her troubles in England and South Africa to solve the mystery of the death of the man in the London tube station.A cross between John Buchan and a normal Agatha Christie? Good, fast-paced fun, with lots of plot twists.


    • I loved this! Not only was it a genius mystery, but the characters were well-written and intersting to read about (something I find rather rare in mystery novels). I'm definitely going to read more Agatha Christie books!


    • Oh, Agatha, can you do no wrong? Yet another case of me looking like a fool in public whilst reading, because Agatha Christie definitely has that knack of surprising me with several events. She's well on the way to becoming one of my faves <33


    • Well, that was a fun ride! The characters were great and the plot challenging. I kept thinking I figured out who the "Colonel" was, but ended up being entirely wrong. Agatha Christie is always way ahead of me!The story is told by Anne Beddingfield, a young woman who has recently become an orphan, and one without means. Her father, a professor, was never good with money, and didn't provide much in the way of an inheritance for Anne. But, as she was in search of adventure, she really didn't worry [...]


    • This is the first Agatha Christie that I have TRULY loved! I think it's because I don't really love Hercule Poirot that much (and I've only read his titles, if I'm remembering correctly), but I didn't realize that was the problem till I read this one. This is hilarious in a dry way, I loved the main character Anne, lots of twists and turns, but definitely more tongue and cheek than super creepy. Light romance, history, travel, and suspense. What a fun read!


    • I love Agatha Christie's early thrillers. There's no Hercule Poirot or Miss Marple in this stand-alone tale of a daring young heroine who boards a cruise ship to South Africa in search of adventure. The plot involves stolen diamonds, a criminal mastermind, the murder of a glamorous actress in an English country house, a man who is run over by a train in the Tube, a Secret Service agent, and a handsome man with a scar whose identity is a mystery. The most entertaining character in the book is Sir [...]


    • The Man in the Brown Suit is a very early Christie, published in 1924 on the heels of the second Poirot mystery, Murder on the Links, and right before the first Superintendent Battle mystery, The Secret of Chimneys. In this one, she introduces the enigmatic Colonel Race, who subsequently appears in Cards on the Table, Death on the Nile and Sparkling Cyanide.This is also the first of her books narrated by one of her charming young women, in this case Anne Beddingfield, impoverished but plucky dau [...]
