The Secret Adversary

First Impressions

As I start to read this book, I can’t help but admit a tinge of sadness when I realise that this book has neither Poirot or Miss Marple in it. However, I do feel as though I do actually know the characters Tommy and Tuppence. I have also realised that there is actually a tv series called “Partners in Crime” which are based on Tommy and Tuppence. I am sad though that this is not a Poirot or Miss Marple book though.

The book itself is beautifully written, it’s so full of what you expect of Agatha Christie, a completely peppy character and a sullen figure. As well as “totally did not see that coming”.

Negative Impressions:

I think my negative impressions of this book are all on myself entirely. When I realised that neither Miss Marple of Poirot were in this book, it honestly did put me off a little. It made it more difficult for myself to read, because I wasn’t really interested in these two characters. There was  nothing wrong with the characters, just that for myself. I was just not interested in it.

First Impressions:

It felt like I could honestly hear Geraldine’s McEwan’s “Miss Marple” as the Miss Marple in this book. It was uncanny! It was a very weird feeling, but it also made me feel happy to keep reading it as she was my favourite Miss Marple. Did anyone else feel like that as well?

Positive Impressions

I really enjoyed this classic novel! You can tell why Agatha Christie is one of the greats! I have seen this novel on tv and I still couldn’t remember how the two who “did the murder” how they did it. I did not skip to the end. It is a pretty short novel compared to some around her time and those of time, but it just means it makes good for some who finds reading boring. A little bit more pleasurable. (I don’t, but I would highly recommend this for someone who finds it difficult to read long books).

Negative Impressions

Too be completely honest with you all…I didn’t really have anything bad to say about this book. There was one point where I think they got the names wrong, but it was only once, if it happened. The writing was beautifully written and as I mentioned before, I have seen the tv series. However, I could not remember why and how they did it.

I did not read the ending of the book first.

For your main meal do you prefer sweet and sour, hot and spicy, spicy and sweet, bitter, salty, bland or other?

I guess that I’d have to go with sweet and sour…One of my favourite dishes is sweet and sour pork =D I can’t handle spicy at all, I’m not very good with it. If something is too sweet or salty, I instantly feel unhealthy and so I’ll stop eating it. If it’s bland, it kind of feels like “What’s the point?”lol

Where do you hide junk when people come over?

Do I dare answer? Then everyone will know what I do! =Dlol … Sometimes and if I can, I hide things under my bed, mainly shoes though. I like to swap my shoes from Winter to Summer, so a lot of my shoes are all under my bed. The other place is in one of my cupboards, but it’s all right in the corner of the cupboard…A dark corner.

What daily habit would you like to introduce to your life?

I NEED to start meditating every day. I feel so much better after it and it helps a lot with my anxiety as well. I’m starting to learn a bit that I can only rely on myself.

If you were to perform in the circus, what would you do?  

I would want to do the acrobatics and the trapeze and all that stuff, but I would honestly probably be the clown,lol.
