I really liked Death on the Nile when I first watched it on tv... I only read it after that. And when i actually read it, it was really long and kinda boring so the show kinda ruined my reading experience for me. The mystery itself, that was nice.
I was 10 or something when I actually read Murder on the Orient Express and I was really impressed then. When I reread it recently it put me off a little... hehe even though I stated earlier that it was 'Chirstie at her best'. What a hypocrite I am, ne? I shouldn't have read it again... *sigh*
I've always wanted to read Ellery Queen... *adds book in 'to read' list* thx for the recommendation!
