      By combining extracts from their most famous works with Rees' insightful essays, Women on the Nile illuminates the life and writings of three remarkable women and captures something of the romance of 19th century travel to the East/5(1).   Death on the Nile A Hercule Poirot Mystery (Book): Christie, Agatha: Linnet Doyle is young, beautiful, and rich. She's the girl who has everything--including the man her best friend loves. Linnet and her new husband take a cruise on the Nile, where they meet the brilliant detective Hercule Poirot. It should be an idyllic trip, yet Poirot has a vague, uneasy feeling that something is.

      This marks Death on the Nile’s second time getting the feature film treatment, with the previous movie coming out in and starring Peter Ustinov . Death On The Nile (Book Club Kit): Christie, Agatha: Linnet Ridgeway has led a charmed life. Blessed with beauty, enormous wealth, and a devoted husband, she has everything anyone could wish for. But as the happy couple set out on a idyllic honeymoon cruise on the Nile, storm clouds are gathering.

    In her first novel, Our Lady of the Nile, originally published in by Gallimard, Scholastique Mukasonga drops us into an elite Catholic boarding school for young women perched on the ridge of the Nile. Parents send their daughters to Our Lady of the Nile to be molded into respectable citizens and to escape the dangers of the outside world. Fifteen years prior to the Rwandan.   Break out the mustache wax and pour yourself a stiff G&T, because the first trailer for Death on the Nile—the Kenneth Branagh-directed adaptation of Agatha Christie’s canonical crime novel in which Detective Hercule Poirot investigates the murder of a young heiress aboard a cruise ship on the Nile River—has dropped, and let me tell you: it is positively studded with sexy, smoldering.
