Chinese Reading Group April Discussion Notes

相对于其他阅读主题,大家似乎对推理/侦探类的题材较少接触。有读者发现图书馆内有著名的英国作家阿加莎. 克里斯蒂的推理小说系列中文版,他说年轻的时侯曾经看过她的很多作品。根据她的小说而拍成电影的尼罗河惨案,东方快车谋杀案 很多年前曾经在中国上影,大部分朋友都看过,现在还记忆尤新。      从香港移民来的朋友则比较喜欢看与他们原居地有关的真人真事,如: 香港震撼案件传真,刑警最前线 – 重案狙击实录。这两本书都真实反映了重案组内的香港警察精英凭着对犯罪学的深入认识,敏锐的触觉及锲而不捨的精神,加上精密的分析头脑,抽丝剥繭地探索每宗案件,历年来屡破奇案,并在揭发隐藏在凶手的背后,发现原来还有不少人性的醜恶面以及许多不为人知的真相。
