Journal Entry #1 I find the characters in the novel "Death on the Nile" by Agatha Christie, to be very diverse. The diversity of each character makes this story so interesting and compelling to read. I sometimes find it difficult to put the book down because of how intriguing the storyline can be.

I find Linnet Ridgeway-Doyle to be one of the most fascinating characters because she is so glamorous and she can manipulate people to do whatever she wants. She is the socialite of this story. Everyone seems to be drawn to her like a magnet. Although, some are very jealous that she has the money and the looks. I find that many of my friends portray this glamorous lifestyle, but maybe not to the same extent.

Hercule Poirot is very wise and he has a lot of good advice to give to others. He is always on top of things and he is very resourceful.

To me, this sounds like my parents; when I am down or struggling, my parents are always there, giving me great advice and sometimes metaphors that I do not understand or, some are repeated too often to me.

Mrs. Allerton and Tim Allerton have that mother-son relationship that only every parent and child could only wish for. Luckily, my mother and I have that same relationship. We do almost everything together, much like Mrs. Allerton and her son. I am very thankful to have the mother that I have and I will always have an unconditional love for her.

The characters in this story share similarities with the people in my life, ie: family, friends, etc... Agatha portrayed these characters to be quite eccentric and over the top; interestingly enough, they seem to relate to the people in my everyday life.
