Well done, but too creepy for me. ( )

Endless Night - Christie
Audio performance by Hugh Fraser
3 stars

This is one of Christie’s later mysteries, first published in 1967. It just didn’t work for me. I found it tedious. I missed the active investigation by a detective and the accumulation of clues. There’s a tremendous amount of dire foreshadowing of tragedy in the first person narrative. I didn’t trust the speaker, Michael Rogers. Possibly, because I saw how many readers had tagged this book ‘unreliable narrator’. But, actually, I think it was pretty clear from the beginning that he couldn’t be trusted. . All but knowing the ending from the first page, just made me impatient for it to be over. ( )

Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant.

A stand alone novel that is more psychological study than mystery. This is one of Agatha Christie's favorites and I can see why. What starts out as a sort of analysis of class dynamics and the psychology of privilege turns into a very chilling exploration of madness.

5 stars. ( )

A pair of newlyweds, from vastly different class backgrounds, take up residence at their new estate – only to find that the past is coming back to haunt them…

"Endless Night" is Agatha Christie’s most haunting novel, and one that has remained in my mind since I first read it many, many years ago. A young man of limited means meets a young heiress, and the two marry and attempt to settle down. But rumblings from the past, mysterious and potentially supernatural occurrences and, ultimately, murder, contrive to ruin their love. All of this is set amidst an atmosphere of fear and foreboding on their estate.

Outside of the early Hastings stories (which were a self-conscious nod to the Sherlock Holmes books), Christie rarely used first-person narration. Here, though, there’s a powerful melancholy to our narrator’s tale from day one which reminds me of Daphne DuMaurier’s Rebecca. This ominous tinge in narrative voice is echoed tenfold by the creepy atmosphere that pervades every scene and moment, setting "Endless Night" apart from the rest of Christie’s canon (except, perhaps from "And Then There Were None", although I can’t really explain why the two novels’ vibes feel similar to me.)

To my mind, "Endless Night" is the best Christie work of the 1960s. Perhaps, freed from the agile plotting required for a Poirot or Marple novel (a task at which she was slightly struggling in her later years), Christie could use the character-building skills that had matured over five decades of writing. Dame Agatha plays around considerably with mystery tropes in this work, and her red herrings here are exquisitely positioned. Even the ‘nursery rhyme’ technique (here a William Blake poem) plays both subtly and powerfully. Christie had used variations on this novel’s twist in the past but – as with all her better works – you still won’t see it coming. ( )

An easy, fun read - had Christie been watching Hitchcock?

Heightened, early-1960s dialogue and all the tropes of the chiller-thriller help to make for a page-turning and ultimately gut-wrenching experience - though quite incredible, of course! ( )
