    1. I have a bunch of old mystery paperbacks and grabbed one the other day and began reading it. The Wall was published in 1938 by Mary Roberts Rinehart. I’ve read other books by her and this one follows in her familiar style. It’s not a bad mystery, but it’s not her best. I skimmed some of it because I found the characters boring and I didn’t really care who killed Juliette, a woman who really deserved it. So far, all of the MRR mysteries I’ve ever read follow this pattern: members of a w [...]


    2. Sunset House is not a house of evil, it's actually the vacation beach home of Marcia Lloyd and her brother Author and his family, the last of a long line of wealthy New Yorkers. There is no horror hidden behind a wall, though there are a few dirty secrets hidden away. The pure hype of it though is why I couldn't pass on using it. It fits the era of when this book was published and it just has a way of grabbing your attention.Much like The Swimming Pool, this book is narrated by one person after [...]


    3. This is a very cleverly written detective story. It is very well described and the actual criminal is so little mentioned and so well covered up that it would take more than an ordinary detective to discover the actual murderer. The characters are beautifully described and especially that of the hero, Allen Langdon Page. I liked him the best. In each chapter, there was always a clue, or a little incident mentioned that gave a kind of mystery to the whole book leaving you in such a suspense that [...]


    4. I have to admit, this was a pretty engrossing read, in spite of it being one of the most convoluted, detail-filled, confusing mysteries I have read. A glimpse of how the other half lived in the late 30s, even under constrained circumstances, is entertaining. Troublemaker Juliette has been a thorn in the side of the Lloyd family for 6 or 7 years, even after her divorce from Arthur Lloyd, and she has many enemies outside the family, too. When she unexpectedly arrives at the family summer house and [...]


    5. A true mystery.I have read several books by this author and have not been disappointed. This one really had me trying to guess who was doing what and why. It is a different read from books that are written now. It is always good to go back to another time.


    6. Mary R RinehartThis is the first book I have read of author, Mary R Rinehart. I enjoyed this book. It kept me interested in "who done it" and I did not figure it out until the end of the book when the sheriff told the main character who the killer was


    7. Over the WallExcellent! It's always such a real pleasure to read one of Ms. Rinehart's books. She was one of the first authors I read so very many years ago, and she never disappoints. If you have not read her novels be sure to pick up one. You are sure to become a fan.


    8. ClassicI heard of Mary Roberts Rinehart, on course, but had never read her. I am so glad that I picked up this book! They call her the American Agatha Christie, but if this book is any indication, she puts Agatha to shame. Can't wait to read more!



    9. I have read others by this author and love her. I had the who figured out but the why surprised me. Love all the historic aspect since it was written in 1938. Enjoyed it.



    10. This book was a bit long with too much detail that wasn't needed. However, it did have a very surprise ending.



    11. Marcia Lloyd is an upper-crust socialite who is not as wealthy as she used to be. Not by any means broke, but when she comes to her summer home, Sunset, in New England, she can only afford to employ a handful of servants for a house that needs a dozen or so. Still, Marcia is looking forward to a break from Depression-Era New York City–until she discovers that her brother Arthur’s ex-wife Juliette Ransom is in town. The conniving Juliette insists on staying at Sunset, being rather vague about [...]


    12. A good, old-fashioned mystery.Mary Roberts Rinehart published her first book (THE MAN IN LOWER TEN) in 1906 and she was a prolific and popular author for almost five decades. It's possible to write one or two brilliant books, but if you write one or two a year for fifty years, not all of them will be top quality. There will also be some repetition. THE WALL was published in 1938 and the themes and characters will be easily recognized if you've read other Rinehart books. It's not one of her very [...]


    13. I discovered this book in a box of books I was clearing out from storage. According to a booklist I maintain, I had already read this book. I can usually tell if I had by the first chapter. This time out I think I may have made an error on my list. I started reading to see and found that I had to continue to the end.It has been a while since I've read Rinehart and I wasn't disappointed by this book. I took my time to enjoy the mystery and the setting. Written in the 1930s and set at a New Englan [...]


    14. Un giallo d'annata, troppo lungo e decisamente "datato". La trama, seppur non originalissima reggerebbe ma nell'insieme l'ambientazione , la lunghezza, lo stile narrativo non sono di stimolo alla lettura. Marcia Lloyd si trova, suo malgrado, coinvolta in una serie di omicidi. A noi europei del XXI secolo appaiono paradossali alcune convenzioni sociali di una america "bene" di inizio secolo (ovviamente il XX) la protagonista improvvisa una limitata "indagine parallela" (dettata più dal romanzo r [...]


    15. Typical Rinehart book of the "Had I but Known School." I happen to love them though. She can really spin a tale introducing us to interesting characters and her endings are always twisty and not quite what you expected. Despite the fact the book is over 75 years old you still find yourself quickly turning the pages to see what happens next.


    16. Rinehart was a masterThis book is really a compelling read, keeps you interested the whole way through. Only the second book i have read by her. Truly the American Agatha Christie.


    17. I LOVED this book! Kept me interested and guessing the whole time (and I was wrong about who the culprit was) I would read this againd probably will in a few years.



    18. A fabulous example of the "Had I but known" school of writing. It is hard to resist Mary Roberts Rinehart, she did it so well. In fact, I can't help but wonder if she invented it!



    19. Too many motives. I finished the book. I really didn't enjoy it. Too many motives. Unrealistic plot. Had to re-read too many chapters.


    20. I've loved this book since I was a teenager, but reading it really had an impact once we moved to MDI, ME. I then realized the setting for the book was familiar territory.




    21. A little long, but mostly satisfying. Figured out the culprit, but not until the end. Open Road continues to be my beloved.
