The Murder at the Vicarage is a work of detective fiction by British writer Agatha Christie, first published in the UK by the Collins Crime Club in October 1930 and in the US by Dodd, Mead and Company later in the same year

The Murder at the Vicarage is a work of detective fiction by British writer Agatha Christie, first published in the UK by the Collins Crime Club in October 1930 and in the US by Dodd, Mead and Company later in the same year. It is the first novel to feature the character of Miss Marple and her village of St Mary Mead.

Not a book club exactly, The Crime Club was a series of mystery titles published and promoted under the name. Dorothy L Sayers was particularly complimentary of this novel. Not only are we formally introduced to the village of St Mary Mead and the "Parish cats" otherwise known as Miss Marple and her friends, but several other recurring characters including the vicar and his wife, Leonard and Griselda Clement, who also appeared in The Body in the Library (1942) and . 0 from Paddington (1957).

Dame Agatha Christie is the queen of mystery writers who all modern aspirants strive to emulate. Agatha Christie's Murder at the Vicarage was my first Miss Marple

Dame Agatha Christie is the queen of mystery writers who all modern aspirants strive to emulate. I enjoy reading her cases featuring detective Hercule Poirot because he knows the outcome well before the reader. Christie's cases are multilayered and keep unraveling until a book's conclusion. Agatha Christie's Murder at the Vicarage was my first Miss Marple. Now that I've had her I can say with the experience of knowledge, she ain't half bad! Still, I'm not sure I'd want to be caught by my more macho, football playing friends reading a tea cozy mystery.

Agatha Christie was the greatest exponent of the classical detective story. Her unique literary talents have crossed every boundary of age, race, class, geography and education. While she refined the template for a fictional form, the reading of her books became an international pastime. As we celebrate her 120th birthday these are my highlights of her literary career. The ABC Murders (1935) Despite advance warnings, Poirot is unable to prevent the murders of Alice Ascher, Betty Barnard and Carmichael Clarke. Can he stop the ABC Killer before he reaches D? One of the earliest examples of the serial killer novel this classic Christie is based on a beautifully simple premise.

Agatha Christie was already an accomplished author when she composed this, the first Miss Marple mystery. It is clever and pleasant. The narrator was Richard E. Grant. Mr. Grant was excellent. Grant was able to convey the wry humor that I certainly believe Agatha Christie wishes to convey. I have been reading numerous modern detective stories. In the event that it matters, and it may not in this case, I am also a retired homicide detective.

Agatha Christie's first ever Miss Marple mystery, reissued with a striking new cover designed to appeal to the latest generation of Agatha Christie fans and book lovers. 'Anyone who murdered Colonel Protheroe,' declared the parson, brandishing a carving knife above a joint of roast beef, 'would be doing the world at large a service!' It was a careless remark for a man of the cloth. And one which was to come back and haunt the clergyman just a few hours later. From seven potential murderers, Miss Marple must seek out the suspect who has both motive and opportunity.

Agatha Christie was already an accomplished author when she composed this, the first Miss Marple mystery. It is the story of a homicide at a vicarage in a small English village. It is clever and pleasant. Needless to say, there is no inappropriate language. I would call the style, post Victorian and civilized. There is a lot of wry humor. Personally, I really like Victorian and post Victorian literature. It does not appeal to all modern readers.

I read this book on Kindle while simultaneously listening to the work on audiobook. The narrator was Richard E. Grant. Mr. Grant was excellent. Mr. Grant was able to convey the wry humor that I certainly believe Agatha Christie wishes to convey.

I have been reading numerous modern detective stories. In the event that it matters, and it may not in this case, I am also a retired homicide detective. This story by Agatha Christie seems to depend more on clever twists and withheld bits of information. Early on I came up with a hypothesis about the homicide itself, but not the identity of the killer, and I was completely wrong, even on how the homicide occurred. There is a lack of scientific description of sounds which made it impossible for me to examine my own hypothesis.

I had no idea who actually did it, not even a "prime suspect". There are many personalities involved in the story. I had trouble keeping track of everyone and probably need to read the story again if I really want to fully understand it. There are also side stories that constantly throws one off the scent. I believe these are referred to as "red herrings". Agatha Christie made liberal use of red herrings in this novel. Between all the different personalities and all of the red herrings, when the inevitable solution finally occurred, I was neither surprised or not surprised.

I read a story awhile back with my book club and a lady there said she felt like she needed a "scorecard" to keep up with all the characters in that book. I sort of felt that way in this story. I may reread it, but not right now...

In summary, I really like this novel and plan on reading more Agatha Christie novels. Thank You.

Miss Marple, as always, quite politely whilst tending her garden and enjoying high tea, runs circles mentally around all the detectives trying to solve the murder. She enjoys her hobby of studying human behaviors.
Agatha Christie will always be one of the finest mystery novels that we have the pleasure of reading. I especially like her books for their lack of profanity, sexual exploits, and gruesome scenes. Mrs. Christie reminds us that you don't have to resort to any of those things to have a book that keeps you up all night!!!
I was in middle/junior high school when I first read all of her novels and fell in love with her style of writing. Now almost 30 years later, a grown lady, she is still one of my top 5 favorite authors-- and an author that I would not hesitate giving to a 12-13 year old child if they enjoyed mysteries. Unfortunately, so many of the current fiction right now I am unable to say the same about because of the profanity or inappropriate sexually explicit scenes or gruesome violence.
I cannot highly recommend any Agatha Christie novel highly enough!!!

A solid 4.5 stars for Murder at the Vicarage, the first novel in the Miss Marple cozy mystery series, written by Agatha Christie in 1930. I've read ~ten novels by Christie and this one is near the top of the list for me. From the characters to the setting and the plot to the tone, it's an intriguing and immersive read. It started out a bit slow for me as the scene was being set, but once the murder happened, it took off in quick force. I can happily say that I had 2 potential guesses as the culprit(s), and I was correct (which doesn't always happen). I also knew there was way too much reference to 'time on clocks' for it not to be important; someone messed with the spinning needles to change the appearance of when the murder happened. But only by minutes... and you'll never guess how important it was!

For many, this will be too on-the-nose or over-simplified when it comes to the layout at approach of Miss Marple's investigation. Though she's responsible for solving it, she's not the main character. The vicar tells us the story of what happened to the deceased, and he interacts with the detectives investigating the crime. Another priest is murdered, but he's not very well liked, so it's okay, right? Some think so... but not all the 'little old biddies' (how the book refers to them) are in agreement. The gossip is out of control in this book, but I adored it for what it was -- a clever plot technique to reveal clues and keep us guessing. Add in the very peculiar marriages between the different priests and their wives, and it's baffling what life was like a century ago. But I'd give nearly anything to be part of it.

What appeals to me most in these Marple novels is how she drops a few thoughts, then scatters around. She leaves mysterious notes for someone to come see her, then won't reveal everything she's thinking. She teases us. But it's as much fun as it is frustrating. She knows, but she's not 100% certain how... so she won't say it all at once until she's got every nasty little detail ferreted out.

The poor vicar suffers in this one as the murder happens in his house -- everyone is up in his business. We know it can't be him or his wife, but wow do they look suspicious. Add in the side-stories and you've got one easy read. It just makes me smile to absorb these quaint settings and stories. I think even though this is the last in my April Agatha Christie Readathon, I am going to keep reading one a month this year.
