The Circular Study book. I have listened to another book by Anna Katharine Green, but not one with the lady Amelia Butterworth whose interest in detection helps Detective Gryce.

The Circular Study book. So, I didn’t This book was very involved. The plot steadily revealed a dark deed and an even darker plan for revenge. Plans that reached beyond the grave and which meant to continue to mess with lives of people who initially had no knowledge of the original deed. But in the end, that also meant the plan for revenge took a very unexpected turn.

The Circular Study by Anna Katharine Green. Anna Katharine Green. Mystery & Detective. Anna Katharine Green was one of the earliest detective fiction writers, and some of her mysteries remain the most popular to be written by an American.

Anna Katharine Green (1846-1935) was an American poet and novelist. She was one of the first writers of detective fiction in America and distinguished herself by writing well plotted, legally accurate stories (no doubt assisted by her lawyer father). Born in Brooklyn, New York, her early ambition was to write romantic verse, and she corresponded with Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Anna Katherine Green is well-known not only for having a talent for writing narratives, but also for the legal accuracy of her stories. She very often used real stories as starting points and inspiration for her novels and she had extensive legal knowledge as well, and this combination of precision, storytelling ability and creativity give Green's books a special and unique character.

I have been reading Anna Katharine Green's books for several weeks now, and most of them I have enjoyed a great deal. This one, however, is definitely my least favorite. It is the last of three books featuring Miss Amelia Butterworth, and it is a sorry ending for her. She is hardly present in the book. As for the story, it is a stretch to call this a detective story. It is reminiscent of her earlier book The Mill Mystery, in that there isn't much detecting, and more of just someone relating a tale. I won't give away any of the plot; I will just say that the motivation for the murder is less than convincing and the victim himself (with his circular study) is absolutely absurd. If this was the first book of hers I had read, it would be the only one. Thankfully, her other books are much better.

This is the first Anna Katharine Green mystery I've read. I found it interesting more from a historical perspective i.e. how the mystery novel began and how it has evolved in the past century. Ms. Green's mysteries were written in between Edgar Allan Poe and Agatha Christie (this one was written in 1900), so she would have been a contemporary of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and I can see the similarities between her story and Doyle's about Sherlock Holmes, albeit, as one reviewer says, a taste of Wuthering Heights.

This is a free book in a series. I enjoy Anna K Green. Slow . Lots of wrong directions and plodding along to conclusion. Comfortable. Easy to read...Miss Butterworth is curious, observant. She enjoys helping the police solve a crime.

Although she may have been big in her time; I did not find her writing to be flowing. Christie painted pictures with her writing while Green just described the setting. Not for me.

I'm so happy to see some of the great works of Anna Katherine Green; she has become one of my favorite writers, after I ran out of Christie's books to read. I found out that Agatha Christie, got into writing after reading Greens' books, who was a bestselling author who publishing about 40 books. I read she was first poet and later became a novelist to get attention to her poetry, however, she was so successful at mystery plotting, (she was an expert at the gradual unfolding of the mystery through the successful unearthing of clue after clue), that she dove right into mystery writing only.

She was one of the first writers of detective fiction in America and distinguished herself by writing legally accurate stories, something like Law and Order in the way that the stories are accurate and sometimes based on actual cases. Her many fans besides me, include such literary luminaries as Arthur Conan Doyle, Wilkie Collins, Mary Roberts Rinehart, and Agatha Christie. In fact, not just Christie, but Rinehart wrote that it was the novels of Anna Katharine Green which first inspired her to become writers of mystery fiction to.

In The Circular Study, we find Victorian detective writing at its finest. In this mystery we are treated to the immortal master of deduction Mr. Gryce - watch and discover how Gryce solves a murder that baffled everyone until at the end, we watch him unravel the murder in the strange, circular study.

If you love a mystery, if you love Christie, or Rinehart, you'll love this book too! Green has the ability to make her novels feel rich and complete, and the mystery sound.

I have read other Anna Katherine Green books, and this one just wasn't up to the standards of the others. There is NO detecting or following clues or anything else that Det. Gryce is famous for. The ending was not even plausible. This was very disappointing for a person who has enjoyed other books by Mrs. Green.

Cultivated, middle-aged and nosy, Amelia Butterworth may be Anna Katharine Green's greatest invention. In "The Circular Study," she must help Inspector Gryce solve a bizarre murder in a room that seems to have been designed as a trap. And why does the bird inside cry "Remember Evelyn"?
This is a Amelia Butterworth and Ebenezer Gryce murder mystery. It is very slow moving, and if it had been the first book I had read by the author, it would have been the last. Read something else that is better by this author.
