The Body in the Library, by Agatha Christie, is a Thriller/Mystery. The story starts off with the Bantrys waking up to a woman's dead body in the library. Nobody there identifies the woman, but later, they realize that she is a dancer from nearby. Miss Marple, a dear friend of Mrs. Bantry, investigates the crime scene. Miss Marple connects the death with other clues. No one is always speaking the truth.

I enjoyed reading this book because the storyline thrills me. The mystery of the murder interests me quite well. This is my first Miss Marple book. I also enjoyed the way Agatha Christie adds the twists in her books. Every time, it gets me! You could never expect the unexpected because it is too difficult to expect. This book is also a little easier for me to understand. The words, concepts, and ideas were less complex. Lastly, I like the idea of having a female lead in the investigation.

I think the cover was okay. It does not relate much with the story. The cover has some books on it, with an orange background. I give the book a 4/5.
