Very dated. I was not very impressed with "plucky" Tuppence and "blockheaded" Tommy. Reminded me a little of Nancy Drew who was "spunky" These types do not solve international crimes..
I am not a fan of Tommy & Tuppence stories, nor am I a fan of spy stories. Oh well, I'll know better next time. I thought this was overly complicated (or maybe I was just distracted) but I did not enjoy this at all.
Can I just say how much I love Tommy & Tuppence? I'm adding the rest of Christie's "Tommy & Tuppence" series to my Audible list right now!
Age recommendation: 14 & up
On a scale of 1-10 stars, I give it 10!
A very enjoyable story with a quick look into the history of the sinking of the Lusitania.
A spy story that's not gory just a nice mystery. Not a lot of slang so an easy read. Good for anyone that likes a gentle mystery.
An interesting story about to unsuspecting people pulled into a deceitful scheme.
A fun story. Not a lot of gore thank goodness. Characters are young and humourous.
This was the first Christie book that I was able to predict the criminal. Still, it was amazing.
Another Tommy and Tuppence mystery. These two are my favorite of Christie's detectives, although Miss Marple and M.Poirot are excellent, too. Something about the way they interact with each other makes me smile.
Not my favorite Christie book by any means. But definitely wort the read. After all it is Agatha Christie, so read it.
Thomas Beresford and Prudence ?Tuppence? Cowley are typical bright young things of the 1920s?unemployed, broke, and bored. So, having tea one day, complaining about the lack of adventure (and jobs), Tommy and Tuppence get an idea. They?ll form the ?Young Adventures, Ltd.? and advertise that they?re willing to do?well, anything. A Mr. Whittingham has overheard the duo at the teahouse, and he contacts them to offer the young lady a job. On a whim, Tuppence gives her name as ?Jane Finn,? an odd moniker that Tommy heard somewhere. Whittingham fires Tuppence, accuses her of blackmail?and gives her a bit of cash. Tommy and Tuppence are inspired. Apparently, they ?know? something! Actual blackmail is risky, but soon they?re head-over-heels in political intrigue, missing heroines, and top-secret documents. Life? Boring? Not when the Young Adventurerers are around. Much of the fun comes from the bumbling teamwork of Tummy and Tuppence, who, of course, come to realize there?s more to their relationship than friendship. Agatha Christie is the Queen of Crime, and this delightful duo of is a refreshing respite from her usual detectives (know-it-all Poirot and little-old-lady Miss Marple). Tommy and Tuppence return for four more thrilling adventures.
