Mary, who is in service at the Vicarage as a stepping-stone to better things and higher wages, merely said in a loud, businesslike voice, Greens, and thrust a cracked dish at him in a truculent manner. My wife said in a sympathetic voice: Has he been very trying? I did not reply at once, for Mary, setting the greens on the table with a bang, proceeded to thrust a dish of singularly moist and unpleasant dumplings under my nose. I said, No, thank you, and she deposited the dish with a clatter on the table and left the room.

The Murder at the Vicarage is a work of detective fiction by Agatha Christie and 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. A major departure for the book is the addition of a series of flashbacks to Miss Marple's youth and her love affair with a married soldier.

Mary, who is in service at the Vicarage as a stepping-stone to better things and higher wages, merely said in a loud, businesslike voice, "Greens," and thrust a cracked dish at him in a truculent manner. Why I should have urged Griselda to marry me at the end of twenty-fours hours' acquaintance is a mystery to me. Marriage, I have always held, is a serious affair, to be entered into only after long deliberation and forethought, and suitability of tastes and inclinations is the most important consideration.

Christie herself later wrote: "Reading Murder at the Vicarage now, I am not so pleased with it as I was at the time. It has, I think, far too many characters, and too many sub-plots.

A new tie-in edition of Agatha Christie's bestseller, to coincide with the broadcast of the new movie on ITV starring Geraldine McEwan. Includes a full colour plate section, a 'making of' essay, background facts and a bonus chapter. '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!!!
For me, this was a complicated mystery. I don't think I could fully comprehend how this murder played out or the intricacies of all the little clues that eventually led to the murderer. The time, the clock, the real note, the fake note, the murder weapon, the alibis of all the individuals suspected, the series of events it took to make it happen and so on were all things that I found slightly difficult to follow.

I felt the crime itself and the time it took to solve it were overly dragged in some parts. I thought this would be a quick book to read, but it took longer than expected, and yes, I finally got to meet the fabulous Miss Marple. An elderly maid, who lives alone, and has a knack at studying people and their behaviors, which helps her notice and see things that others wouldn't normally pay attention to. She is known as a busybody, who likes to involve herself in everything, making observations everywhere she goes, and more importantly, she is ALWAYS right.

I tried to like this book, I really did. I've always been told how everyone prefers Hercule Poirot to Miss Marple, and I really wanted them to be wrong and end up liking her and enjoy her detective work. I didn't though. Not this one anyway. I'm not sure if it's because it's her first appearance, and so, Agatha Christie, was really just trying to lay down the foundations for future books and just using this story to introduce us to her. She showed up intermittently throughout the story, appearing only in a handful of scenes, so it was difficult to get a good read on her character and her involvement in solving the case. Not being a detective and just a regular by-stander and nosy neighbor snooping around the village, it had a completely different vibe and feel to the Hercule Poirot books, in which he could formally get involved in the crime as a detective, working closely with the police force to solve the case.

I think, were it a different story, with a different plot, and more Miss Marple, I would have enjoyed her detective work a lot more than Poirot's, because she's relatable. She's me and you and every reader out there trying to read the clues and figure out who did it. That's pretty cool, if you think about it - an old lady with nothing better to do than people watching. I definitely haven't given up on Miss Marple yet, and plan to read more of her.

I just found out through another reviewer that Miss Marple's next book comes twelve years after this one, which makes me wonder how different the writing and the style would be. It's almost like Christie waited that long to recreate the character, so I'm looking forward to getting into the next Miss Marple.
