Ad been committed It was most intruguing Soon she is faced with a new crime the ultimate crime murder It seems someone is adamant that past evils remain burie. Nemesis by Agatha Christie is the eleventh installment of A Miss Marple Mystery Challenge Accepted Miss Marple is reading the births deaths and marriages in her newspaper when she stumbles across the name Rafiel Certain she has heard it before she ponders and recalls that they met when they were both travelling in the West Indies and helped solve a crime and prevent a second murder A few days later completely unexpectedly she receives a letter from other than Mr Rafiel himself explaining that he needs her help and her flair of crime The letter was written before his death and is very vague He clearly wants her to investigate a crime of some sort but given no detail If Miss Marple is successful in solving this undescribe crime she will be rewarded with £20000 and she decides to take the challenge The Reader's Reaction Nemesis by Agatha Christie where the nemesis herself thinks that love is the most frightening word that ever existed It can change you for better and sometimes even for the worse And when it changes a person for worse it can prove to be a frightening word It can turn you to a maniac which is called obsession There is too much talk about sex too much attention is paid to it I do not mean that anything about sex is wrong That is nonsense But sex cannot take the place of love it goes with love but it cannot succeed by itself To love means the word of the marriage service for better for worse for richer for poorer in sickness and in health That is what you take on if you love and wish to marryReaders if you follow Miss Marple series by this time you know gardening knitting and deducing mysteries is the part of Miss Jane Marple's way of life Here in this part the theme of gardening and plants takes on a deeper symbolic meaning Christie uses sprawling weeds that choke the life out of healthy plants She notes that the pretty Polygonum is in a way very frightening plants She describes how it kills and dries up and gets rid of everything it grows over just as the murderer full of possessive and jealous love They wish not to become adult not to accept our kind of responsibility And yet like all children they want to be what thought grown up and free to do what they think are grown up things And that leads sometimes to tragedy and sometimes to the aftermath of tragedy Published in 1971 Nemesis is one of the later novel of Agatha Christie and one of the characteristics of the her later novel is heavy use of literary reference In earlier novel Christie plundered nursery rhymes and Shakespeare for titles and made the occasional literary reference Nemesis plays with a number of literary allusion The three Bradbury Scott sisters are the witches from Macbeth Chekhov 's three sisters and the Fates The murderer in this part is compared to Clytemnestra Ship that pass in the night and speak each other in passing only a signal shown and a distant voice in the darkness Although Christie 's later novel may not be her strongest they have the characteristics surprise endings It use apt literary reference and challenge reader to contemplate evil a powerful passionate and predatory force and to understand the necessity and limitations of human justice that may tempt a detective to become a Nemesis to protect the innocent Note It is already instructed to readers by Goodreads to read this part after reading A Caribbean Mystery for better understanding and pleasure

Alfred Don't read thisEverybody else Nemesis For such an ominous title Christie presents a rather philosophically reserved and sedentary work Miss Marple of the pink fluffy wool and knitting needles has been left a beuest by Mr Rafiel the debilitated rich man she met during A Caribbean Mystery The beuest is conditional; she must investigate and elucidate a certain happening within a year No information is provided The premise intrigues her and she accepts the challenge She takes some small steps on her own although she also receives a brief post mortem letter from him containing little detail except that he would like to send her on a particular coach countryside tourIt's a mildly intriguing set up where the reader and Miss Marple are in similar straights waiting to discover what the mystery is Unfortunately it is very slow going and because Miss Marple is unsure of her task much of her conversations are fishing for information but what sort of catch It is a very internally based story relying on Miss Marple's internal dialogue and the sharing of long stories with various characters It occurs to me that it is about the exact opposite of another recent read Dark Matter which had frantic pacing and a staccato narrative Take for instance the first part of this paragraph from Miss MarpleMr Rafiel had made arrangements Arrangements to begin with with his lawyers They had done their part At the right interval of time they had forwarded to her his letter It had been she thought a well considered and well thought out letter It would have been simpler certainly to tell her exactly what he wanted her to do and why he wanted it done She was surprised in a way that he had not before his death sent for her probably in a somewhat peremptory way and or less lying on what he would have assured her was his deathbed and would then have bullied her until she consented to do what he was asking her But no that would not really have been Mr Rafiel's way she thought He could bully people none better but this was not a case for bullying and he did not with either she was sure to appeal to her to beg her to do him a favour to urge her to redress a wrong No That again would not have been Mr Rafiel's way He wanted she thought as he had probably wanted all his life to pay for what he reuired He wanted to pay her and therefore he wanted to interest her enough to really enjoy doing certain workIt goes on this way for another ten to twelve sentences as she mentally works her way through interpretations of Mr Rafiel's motivations and plans But you can see this is rather sleepy stuff that we are mostly inside Miss Marple's head as she speculates and dissects the situation It picks up a little bit when she's invited to a house part way through the trip but the dialogue gives only some respite as many times she employs her nattering ditzy elderly persona to elicit information She talks to a man with the Home Office and another man with the Church and listens to their stories as well as their views on the psychology of the crime and the psychology of the criminalThe setting was nicely developed; I certainly felt like I was on a rather dull coach tour with a bunch of tourists The gardens the surface conversations between strangers the options for the hardy and the elderly all captured that bus tour feeling Eventually there is a mild atmosphere of oppression much like the air outside before a mild storm but nothing uite suffocating Nothing worth of the 'nemesis' label The denouement is a bit anti climactic and to make it worse it is a trick used by Miss M before It occurs to me that despite the inner dialogue I don't remember very much about Miss M personally which is a shame Still it was mildly interesting putting the pieces together even if I did have the tendency to nod off from time to time I'm totally sure it was me Mostly Partly But I always enjoy a little bit of Miss M from time to time after all after Nancy Drew she is the female investigator I've known the longestTwo and a half sleepy starsAlfred's insightful review on the emotion of the story
