One of the latest Christie’s novels, placed after World War Two.
The main characters are Tommy and Tuppence, that investigate upon facts happened at the beginning of the century (some sixty years before, then). The inquiry develops through dialogues and talks with people that remember, believe to remember, forget and get mixed up. The reading was pleasant and, after two books, I can definitely affirm that I like this couple.
But, to be fully honest, I didn’t understand everything in this novel: a lot of names, objects, places and puns which made the book fascinating to me but, on the contrary, I also found some confusion; the doubt (strictly personal) that the text contain some mistakes (as if it were just a proof) and a resolution of the story that didn’t satisfy me completely.
For this reason I’d like to compare my opinion with somebody else who read this novel!
The worst Christie I've read. I tried to finish it but I couldn't.
However, Agatha Christie is still my favourite author and I highly recommend her other books since "Postern of Fate" is the only book of hers I couldn't finish.
