One Reply to “The Rose And The Yew Tree”

  1. I had to abandon this because it was so grim I think the narrator was suffering from clinical depression There was a kind of emotional greyness in all of the events and people he described He didn t seem to like anybody and frequently complained about how useless he was and how meaningless his life was I got about half way through and couldn t take any.

  2. The Rose and the Yew Tree is one of Christie s pseudonymous novels, originally published under the pen name of Mary Westmacott The novels which Christie wrote as Westmacott are usually referred to as romance novels, and while there s a healthy dose of romance involved here, it s of a human interest novel than anything else.Loosely speaking, the story follows the ruthless John Gabriel in his attempt to make it as a politician in a sleepy village, a man who would happily represent any political p [...]

  3. British politics, unhappy women, and dreaming of marrying your cousin Yep, sounds like a great read I have now read 3 of the 6 novels Agatha Christie wrote under the pseudonym Mary Westmacott But unlike her mystery stories, I m pretty sure I will never have a desire to re read any of these These are marketed as romance, but I find them too filled with depressing people with unredeeming qualities Even the narrator here, Hugh Norreys, leaves something to be desired.

  4. This is my first Mary Westmacott novel and I picked it up thinking it d be a mystery novel with either the odball M.Poirot or the adorable Miss Marple both of whom I love Instead, it turned out to be a romance But did it disappoint me Not in the least I throughly enjoyed perceiving the world through the eyes of Hugh Norreys, who, after being rendered invalid, has all the time in the world to observe people Though it gets quite depressing, I will read it again.

  5. I hope I shall not be mistaken if I call this, Pages of nothingness I seriously found not a single page interesting, or even a purpose behind each character s actions Here you go A male protagonist who broke his leg and lost his fianc and is depressed at present And he meets a girl, a princess who comes to his house everyday to sit with him and chat He explains what gibberish they speak everyday in the same monotonous way At last she marries a drunkard, who is not worthy to be called a human bei [...]

  7. Not your typical Agatha Christie No mystery No deduction It s a love story actually And not your run of the mill love story either, with all the yearning and pining With very unique characters, the book offers great insight into the human nature.

  8. Absorbing book with interesting characters and themes you had to wrestle with Really enjoying her Westmacott s so far Liked Teresa John Gabriel not so much

  9. Lord, the skill and unnerving perception of Christie.I love the choice she makes in a setting, how she unashamedly places a story in the midst of a small village with no pretence to exoticism or grandeur and then proceeds to ruthlessly delineate and unpack and thoroughly dissect the characters with a psychological insight that sometimes leaves me breathless and overwhelmed, struggling to contain so much intricacy of characterisation in my head.And her clever use of symbolism, how unusual that ce [...]

  10. I loved Agatha Christie and her odd little Belgian and her prim Miss Marple, so I expected that I would love her Mary Westmacott stories Unfortunately I didn t they were good stories, but I didn t feel the usual sense of accomplishment or enjoyment upon finishing it The Rose and the Yew Tree sounded intriguing instead I was left feeling down and depressed NOT how I want to feel at the end of a story.I can t say that even trying years later that there was any change although the stories were well [...]

  11. This book is written by Agatha Christie under an assumed name It is not a mystery, but a romance I would not have believed in the character of Isabella if I had not had my son Isabella is calm and content wherever she lives because she lives entirely in the present unable to articulate her emotions and feelings She does not understand that others are frustrated by her inability to express herself In addition to the love element, there is much political machinations The political world is much li [...]

  12. My canary died when I was about five It was quite well the night before and in the morning it was lying in the cage with its feet sticking up stiff life that bird just now I took it in my hand, she shivered It was cold She struggled with words It it wasn t real any it was just a thing it didn t see or hear or feel it it wasn t there A book that shared similarities with Absent in the Spring in that it examined the theme of how well we know ourselves but also how well do we really know others [...]

  13. Hugh Norreys meets a mysterious woman while convalescing at the English country home of his brother At first he is puzzled by Isabella Charteris s air of unperturbed serenity but as their friendship develops, he becomes irresistibly drawn to her Sadly, he can only watch helplessly as she turns away from all that is beloved and familiar in her life and starts down a questionable path Agatha Christie writing as Mary Westmacott blends romance, politics and war to create a thought provoking story I [...]

  14. Sempre achei que Agatha Christie era uma escritora que descrevia e compreendida os diferentes tipos de pessoas e neste livro ela descreve um conjunto de personagens de um modo nico e d uma vis o impressionante das suas interac es N o apenas uma hist ria com personagens invulgares misturadas com pessoas comuns, denota se a sua energia e a individualidade com aquilo que dizem e sobretudo com aquilo que n o dito.Li uma vers o em portugu s editada pelos Livros do Brasil, n o muito cuidada, com algun [...]

  15. Another non mystery Christie The relationships between men and women against the backdrop of small town post war politics, seen through the eyes of Hugh, a man who has lost the use of his legs Gabriel is a war hero and aspiring politician whose weakness is a crippling inferiority complex The plot seems secondary to the characters Some of them, Teresa, the wise sister in law and Isabella, the local princess are interesting.

  16. Two people who should probably never have met do meet and fall in love but definitely not like and make each other miserable Sounds like a terrible story, but actually isn t, mainly because the people involved aren t that simple Agatha Christie really could write people who say she couldn t are dorks or haven t read anything she wrote , and some of her Mary Westmacott books are the best proof of that, because they re stripped of the Poirot foibles and so on.

  17. I feel like calling this book a book a romance is misleading It s about human nature and behavior in many forms, and romance is just one of them It s not a happy book, although I found the way the narrator grew throughout the story to be satisfying My favorite character was the sometimes brutally honest sister in law.

  18. J abandonne la centi me page Il y a clairement un probl me de rythme, je n arrive pas entrer dans l histoire ce qui est tr s rare avec Agatha J y reviendrais peut tre mais je pr f re passer un autre roman, pouf le moment.

  19. Agatha Christie, writing as Mary Westmacott, is a master at describing people, places and incidents She details her characters so well that they seem like somebody you might have known in real life.

  20. Agatha Christie should have stuck to mysteries I didn t care for any of the characters in this boring story written under her pen name.

  21. The enigmatic Isabella Charteris for many years been expected to marry her cousin Rupert but when she meets political contender and all round rake Joun Gabriel things change in an instant.Her dreams of a home and happy future with Rupert are abandoned for the caddish John but is their union one of true love or is it just infatuation Is the price they will pay to find out too high All her friend and secret admirer Hugh Norreys can do as a crippled invalid is sit back and pray that things will not [...]

  22. The book is ok, I guess Not really what I think of Agatha Christie It was interesting platform Most of the characters name I know someone with the same name So it got confusing at times The ending of the story had The House of Mirth feeling There was mentioning of swearing but the ending hit me hard I would rate this a 2.9.

  23. I just couldn t get into this one it was too political for me Also, we re told in the prologue what a horrible person one the characters is going to be and I frankly wasn t looking forward to that.

  24. This is one of the amazing books by Agatha Christie.love the ploti couldn t stop reading it was interesting and full of suspence read for Agatha Christie fans
