  1. Probably not one of Agatha Christie s best books but I enjoyed it just the same Frankie and Bobbie are a delightful pair and I loved their ending The story is fun and I didn t actually guess one of the guilty parties.I believe this was one of her earlier books and it was not as polished as her work usually is I also had to suspend belief often than usual In the first few chapters when the doctor and Bobbie find a dying man on a cliff the doctor goes for help leaving the unqualified young man in [...]

  2. Rating 3.5 of fiveAnnoying Just plain annoying Frankie and Bobby are bumbling amateurs Lady Frances Derwent, daughter of the Earl of Marchington, knows Bobby, the son of the Vicar of Marchbolt, from little on up They meet again when Bobby s found a dying man under the cliffs near his home He and Frankie decide that they ll look into the matter because there are some loose and flapping ends that Bobby knows but had no chance to say at the inquest.Hijinks quite predictably ensue.It was 80 years ag [...]

  3. To put it mildly not one of Christie s best and I am a fan who has rated books of hers five stars I really liked it at first Bobby Jones is a amiable young man, a vicar s son, who finds a dying man at the foot of a cliff The man s last cryptic words were, Why didn t they ask Evans Soon there s an attempt on Bobby s life and he and his childhood friend, Frankie, aka Lady Frances Derwent, are on the case There s a great chemistry between them, wit and humor to be had in the tale, a breezy readable [...]

  4. Cerita pembunuhannya sendiri kurang menarik,yang membuat menarik,sangat menarik malahan latar belakangnya dan kata kata terakhir korban mengapa mereka tidak memanggil evans yang membuat penasaran dan memulai petualangan bobby dan frankie yang pada akhirnya membawa mereka kembali ke wisma pendeta.good Aku sangat suka dengan karakter Lady Frances Derwent aka Frankie yang di gambarkan tante Agatha Christie yang menurut saya agak sempurna,lucu,pemberani,dari keluarga kaya.aku mau lah kalau ada lagi [...]

  6. 2,5 Reread Saya agak agak lupa ceritanya Dapat separuh buku, rasanya kok males mau lanjut Tapi sudah punya bukunya, sayang mau di dnf Eh, ternyata pas baca pertama kali dulu, perasaannya masih sama Dulu hampir di dnf juga Hampir DNF in buku ini Ide ceritanya oke dan karakternya menarik, terutama Frankie yg lucu Setelah separuh buku, rasanya membosankan Tapi pelaku sebenarnya dalam kasus Kabut benar benar diluar dugaan.

  7. It really was jolly rotten luck that a man should decide to topple off the cliff at the golf course the very night Bobby Jones had promised to play organ at his father s evening service But as the man s not quite dead, there s nothing for it but for Bobby to stand guard while his partner of the course rushes off for help It is then that the man utters five words before quietly dying The words Why didn t they ask Evans It is that question and subsequent odd occurrences that set Bobby and his grea [...]

  8. Previously published as The Boomerang Clue , this stand alone mystery from 1934 had somehow escaped my notice until recently I found this a fun cosy mystery although slightly predictable I suspect that is because so many authors have copied the gist of Christie s plots over the years In any case, although I did figure out who the bad guys were fairly early, it was still fun to watch Bobby and Frankie figure it out.

  9. Compared to the previous Christie book I read which was, I think, The Hollows , this was a disappointment.Why Didn t They Ask Evans is not a Poirot or Miss Marple book, but instead stars Bobby Jones fourth son of the vicar and Frankie Frankie s the daughter of the earl as they try to solve the mystery behind the death that Bobby comes across while playing golf The two friends hatch plots and investigate suspects, with the twists and turns meaning that the truth is always just out of grasp for mo [...]

  10. I read this under the title The Boomerang Clue, and kept waiting for said clue to appear At the end of the novel I realized the title s significance and had a chuckle there is no literal boomerang clue here the title refers to the fact that the novel begins with a dying man asking, why didn t they ask Evans the alternate title and ends with learning that Evans has been under the sleuths noses all the timeey have come back to their starting point like a boomerang It s the only Christie title I ca [...]

  11. Nessun investigatore classico protagonista di questa vicenda Tutto lasciato nelle mani di Bobby e di Frankie sua amica di nobili origini con vari agganci e molta disponibilit economica , improvvisatesi entrambi novelli detective.Devo ammettere d aver molto apprezzato il personaggio forte e anche un po ficcanaso di Frankie ed il gioco tra delitti ed a che si crea in questo romanzo.Ci sono alcuni punti della vicenda che risultano un po forzati e un po troppo provvidenziali niente spoiler mi fermo [...]

  12. Agatha Christie is one of my favorite authors of all time So you can expect me to be a bit partial to her writing I love her and the way she weaves magic in every book of hers Her books are simply marvelous and so is this book Why didn t they ask Evans The protragonists Bobby and Frankie are awesome especially Frankie She is independent, smart and spunky She is now right on top with my favorite female fictional characters The plot like any Agatha Christie book is brilliant and grasping The words [...]

  13. Well, I can t give a detailed review on this, since it took me so long to read I hate writing long reviews too Compared to the previous Christie book I read last year And Then There Were None , this was a disappointment I just couldn t keep my attention but for a few minutes at a time, it s not what one generally expects from Christie s mysteries This book had such a good set up, but wasn t as good as it could have been, the mystery wasn t as hooking as the other ones I ve read, while the ending [...]

  14. This is the same book as The Boomerang Clue but Why Didn t They Ask Evans is the perfect title, as it holds the key to the entire story I m not sure what a boomerang has to do with the story, unless it refers to a character throwing a boot up through a skylight, said boot falling back into the room amid broken glass on the floor Anyway, Christie s forte was never double detective stories it s just hard to out wit Poirot or Marple , and here Bobby and Frankie come off as no than Tommy and Tuppen [...]

  15. Scooby Doo would be right at home in this novel, particularly towards the end but so would Nancy Mitford and several other Mitford sisters, but probably not Unity or Jessica Christie paints in broad strokes the Bright Young People of the 1930s gossip columns, with droll, insouciant Frankie standing in for the champagne addled aristrocratic youth of the time period This certainly isn t Christie s best, but it s a screwball delight to read You probably will have it all figured out by about half wa [...]

  16. While Agatha Christie is best known for her sleuths like Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple, I ve discovered that some hidden gems among her standalone novels Why Didn t They Ask Evans Is a thoroughly enjoyable read, anchored by the terrific chemistry between the protagonists, lifelong friends Bobby Jones, son of the local vicar, and Lady Frances Derwent Their relationship, particularly the way they constantly spar and view their case, reminds me of another pair of Christie sleuths Tommy and Tuppenc [...]

  17. Bobby dan koleganya menemukan seorang pria terjatuh dari tebing Saat ditinggalkan bersama Bobby, pria itu mengucapkan kata terakhirnya, Mengapa mereka tidak memanggil Evans Sejak itu kasus berkembang ke arah yang aneh dengan lenyapnya foto gadis jelita yang dilihat Bobby di kantung jas korban dan digantikan oleh foto Mrs Cayman yang mengaku adik korban Setelah Bobby memebritahu kata kata terakhir korban pada keluarga Cayman, nyawa Bobby malah terancam Bobby dan temannya, Lady Frances Frankie ber [...]

  19. Why Didn t They Ask Evans was my first Agatha Christie novel This book was so thrilling and suspenseful One of the main characters, Bobby Jones, while playing golf with a Dr Thomas, discovers a man that has fallen over a cliff below one of the holes Dr Thomas, after discovering the man will soon be dead, runs to get help and the police Bobby stays to watch over the man While watching him the man suddenly opens his eyes and mutters Why didn t they ask Evans he then falls into the chains of death [...]

  20. This was not my favorite Agatha Christie novel, but if I could, I d give it 2 1 2 stars instead of just 2 The main characters are kind of nitwits Instead of getting the police involved, they act on their own and almost get themselves killed They do this because they don t think the police can help them, but they don t give the police all the info they have It just bugged me This style of mystery novel is what I call a Scooby Doo Mystery , complete with a criminal in disguise and plenty of coinci [...]

  21. I really enjoyed the characters and mystery in the first half of the book The ending however felt a bit forced Specifically without going into spoilers the bright young protagonist named Frankie does something frighteningly stupid and out of character for someone who has read a lot of mysteries After that happened, the plot seemed rushed as if Agatha Christie had tired of the whole thing and wanted it over with.One thing I don t understand is why women in old books often have names that sound ma [...]

  22. It s a shame there aren t stories about Bobby and Frankie Like the Tommy and Tuppence books, this describes a pair of amateurs who fancy themselves as half descent detectives and endeavour to solve a murder The twist in the story is expertly done, with Christie pointing the finger at one suspect for the majority of the book, then changing tack at the last minute One of my favourites so far.

  23. I thought it was a bit amateurish for someone of Christie s skills It had such a good set up, but wasn t as good as it could have been If you ve read Christie before, it won t be hard to figure out whodunnit Still, Bobby and Francis are a likable pair and they kept me reading because of their energy.

  24. This has it all A likeable pair of protagonists, drug feinds, an enigmatic villainess and a truly bad lot of a villain Full of derring do and faithful friends, this is a lighthearted romp that takes us from Wales to Hampshire and back again Great fun
