A pocket full of rye

I have been intrigued by mystery stories for a long time. Though I haven't read much in this genre so far, I have watched quite a few movies and was thrilled. When I heard about Agatha Christie in a movie (Taare Zameen Par, to be precise), I decided to borrow one of her mystery novels from the library. "A pocket full of rye" is a page turner and keeps you guessing until the story ends in a twist.

The head of the family Mr.Rex Fortesque is poisoned by one among the members of his family. The inspector Mr.Neele who handles the investigation unravels the motive and identifies the killer using a nursery rhyme. As I turned the pages, I was guessing who could be the killer and my guesses kept changing. In the end, all my guesses were wrong. A short and crisp storyline and a well connected plot has made this novel a pretty interesting read. I hope to read more of her novels in the coming months.

3. FAVORITE BOARD GAME?
"Snake and ladder". It was fun to play on the day of Vaikunda Ekadesi with my grandma....the more the number of snakes that eat you, the more the number of sins you have committed...that was her logic!

Whoooooh!!! I never knew this logic... I thought you'd add Monopoly here.

10. FUTURE CHILD'S NAME?
Will a nick name do? :-) haven't thought of the official name yet....

ah... Anu, is that the name we all know?

13. DO YOU SLEEP WITH A STUFFED ANIMAL?
I won't call it as a stuffed animal.....but I love tiny stuffed toys and they all have names. One of them is very very special!

He sure is!! I love him too...

19. IF YOU COULD DYE YOUR HAIR ANY COLOR, WHAT WOULD BE YOUR CHOICE?
Non-Harry Potter fans can pass on to the next question.
"Can I get a Weasley color please, to match my hero Ron?"

That's a beautiful red isn't? More than Ron, I think it suits the twins and Ginny.

30. OF ALL THE PEOPLE YOU TAGGED THIS TO, WHO'S MOST LIKELY TO RESPOND FIRST?
I would want my hubby to respond....this tag might pull him back to blogging!

Chells, is a busy man!! But let this bring him out of his hibernation.
