Magpie Murders

Magpie MurdersMagpie Murders by Anthony Horowitz

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is an interesting book, a book within a book, one a 50s style crime novel with a Hercule Poirot style detective and a murder in a sleepy English village, the other is the story of the book’s editor, who (trying not to give away any spoilers here) has some difficulties with the manuscript. I really liked the 50s crime novel bit but did not get on with the other part of the story, I found the editor protagonist to be a bit annoying and almost childish in her investigating, always more than half tempted to treat life as if it were a book. Magpie Murders was okay but it made me more wish that I had spent my time reading some classic Poirot instead.

And as usual, when I read a book, I’ve created a piece of art work inspired by it. This piece is entitled Magpie Murder (as there is only one magpie) and is a mixture of hand embroidery and appliqué and is for sale over in my shop.
