Out flew the web and floated wide-. The mirror crack'd from side to side; "The curse is come upon me," cried.

At the end of the book, Marina dies peacefully in her sleep after having taken an overdose of Calmo; it is not stated whether her death was an accident, suicide or possibly "assisted suicide" as hinted at by Miss Marple. Out flew the web and floated wide-.

She put down her parcels and gasped for breath. Something has happened? asked Miss Marple. I really don’t like to tell you about it, dear, I really don’t you. If you don’t tell me, said Miss Marple, somebody else will. Dear, dear, that’s true enough, said Miss Knight. Yes, that’s terribly true. Everybody talks too much, they say. And I’m sure there’s a lot in that. I never repeat anything myself. You were saying, said Miss Marple, that something rather terrible had happened?

The title of the novel comes from the poem The Lady of Shalott by Alfred, Lord Tennyson. The Lady of Shalott lives in a tower near Camelot, and sees it only reflected in a glass. She will be doomed if she looks directly; when Lancelot appears, she looks directly at him and the looking glass cracks

Agatha Christie had long been fascinated by the tastes of new 'developed' houses on the estates around her home in Wallingford, Oxfordshire and she saw an opportunity to explore these in The Mirror Crack'd.

Agatha Christie had long been fascinated by the tastes of new 'developed' houses on the estates around her home in Wallingford, Oxfordshire and she saw an opportunity to explore these in The Mirror Crack'd. The title came from the poem The Lady of Shalott, by Tennyson. The last of the true English village mysteries in Christie's output, and one of the best of her later books. In 1980 Hollywood adapted the novel into a film starring Angela Lansbury as Miss Marple alongside Elizabeth Taylor as the beautiful Marina Gregg.

  • As with the previous of Agatha Christie's "Miss Marple" books, I'm officially rating her 1962 novel "The Mirror Crack'd from Side to Side: A Miss Marple Mystery (Miss Marple Mysteries Book 9)" at a Very Good 4 stars out of 5 even though I'd like to knock half a star off to 3-1/2 stars. In general, the writing's good and interesting (though the stereotypical secondary and tertiary characters are a bit annoying). Surprisingly for a "Miss Marple" book, there's even internal evidence to support Miss Marple's final result (nothing that could stand up in court, of course). On the other hand, that internal evidence is part of why I'm knocking half a star off: once things started happening, I immediately fastened on it for my own hypothesis of "whodunit" and it turns out I was right. Aggravating that is that everyone pointedly ignores various things that, if examined, would have led them to the murderer. Also, the later spree of additional murders seems out of character to me. Still, overall, the book's pretty good.

  • The village of St Mary Mead experienced a growth (a development): new inhabitants, new houses, new shops. A famous artist arrived and settled in. In the fete given in her new house a woman is murdered. Miss Jane Marple considered the matter. The work of the Scotland Yard and the wisdom of Miss Marple are required to solve the puzzle. As is always the case, the solution depends in careful consideration of the facts. The novel presents Jane Marple in a colorful way with the total display of her grace. Another worth reading of Agatha Christie.

  • A movie star moves to Miss Marple's town. Before you know it someone is dead, but there seems to be no reason why. Miss Marple spends most of her time in her house being looked after so she has to depend on visitors to tell her what is happening in the case.
    Eventually there are many suspects and more death! The characters are well delineated and the plot is very good indeed. Clues as to whom the murderer is are in the book. You can solve this one of you pay attention! I absolutely loved it.

  • I showed the movie version of this story to my senior English class, but, as usual, the book is so much better! Agatha Christie's knowledge of the human heart is revealed through the thoughts and words of Miss Marple, who sees more than the surface. When an annoying woman is murdered just after gushing to an aging actress about the first time they met, Miss Marple comes to the rescue of the police once again. She even manages to remove the annoying companion hired by her nephew to "help" her convalesce without hurting anyone's feelings. Never mess with a "sweet old lady!"

  • THE MIRROR CRACK'D finds the quaint village of St. Mary Mead undergoing changes. Besides the charming old village, there is now a supermarket and a modern neighborhood of tract homes. Despite the physical changes taking place in the area, however, human nature remains a constant.

    Having taken up residence in the local manor house, movie star Marina Gregg hosts a cocktail party. When one of the neighbor ladies suddenly dies from poison, it appears the fatal concoction might have been meant for Marina.

    Aside from Sherlock Holmes, Miss Marple is probably my favorite fictional detective. Her quiet way of getting at the truth is always clever and insightful. She's a delightful character, and Christie can be relied on to create a fascinating plot. Despite the seemingly unconnected details, the clues are there if you can just decipher what they mean. The outcome always ties up the loose ends very satisfactorily.

    If there's anything to criticize here, it's that our dear old Miss Marple has become so decrepit that she must have a somewhat annoying companion and, since she rarely gets out of her house, her actual presence in the story is more limited than usual. Christie relys on other characters for most of the legwork in this tale and they aren't quite as engaging as Jane Marple. We just don't get the usual clicking knitting needles to the extent that Miss Marple fans have become accustomed.

    That minor criticism aside, this is another first-rate Christie whodunit. It isn't my favorite Miss Marple mystery, but it's pretty darn good just the same. If an entertaining muder mystery is what you seek, THE MIRROR CRACK'D will fill the bill. I recommend it highly.

  • Great read with some interesting twists! I'll read again in about a year for fun.

  • Interesting story by a master storyteller. Lots of twists and turns kept my interest as the story progresses.

  • Miss Marple, with aid of a good friend, solve a very unfortunate incident with a tragic ending. Who should you feel sorry for--the victim, well maybe, or the perpetrator?
