Title: Destination Unknown
Author: Agatha Christie
Page Count/Review Word Count: 192
This book was worth reading if only because of its unusual historical significance. It’s a rare Christie standalone, but it also has some espionage vibes that makes it feel almost like an Ian Fleming or Graham Greene novel.
The main problem that I had with this one was that I thought the build-up was better than the bulk of the book and then the ending, and so while it didn’t exactly let itself down, it just didn’t end up being as good as I was expecting it to be from the start of it.
Destination Unknown is a good title for this one, because you’re best off going in with no real idea of what’s coming. In that way, it’s almost reminiscent of a modern day thriller, and it certainly has some of the same vibes. That makes it an interesting book because of what it’s trying to do and when it was trying to do it, but I don’t know if there’s anything to recommend it for beyond that.
