    1. If you sat down with Agatha Christie and asked her about her life, this book would be the story she would tell. It is very conversational in tone. I found some parts to be extremely fascinating, and other parts only mildly interesting - especially in the beginning. I was very interested in the parts where she talked about her writing, how she got the ideas for many of her books, and how she felt about them. She had written many, many books before she ever thought of herself as a real author. I'v [...]


    2. "Towards the beginning of the war, Graham Greene had written to me and asked if I would like to do propaganda work. I did not think I was the kind of writer who would be any good at propaganda, because I lacked the single-mindedness to see only one side of the case. Nothing could be more ineffectual than a lukewarm propagandist. You want to be able to say ‘X is black as night’ and feel it. I didn’t think I could ever be like that."Dame Agatha - one of the most puzzling authors I have ever [...]


    3. What a long, long book… which, when you think about it, only stands to reason as it is, after all, the autobiography of Dame Agatha Christie who lived to be 85. The reason why it took me so long to read it is because while many passages are really engrossing and revealing as to how she came up with her ideas and ended up being the number one best-selling author of all time (more than a billion copies of her books sold worldwide, and still counting!), other parts and sometimes entire sections a [...]


    4. I felt as if I'd dropped in for afternoon tea with Dame Agatha! I simply couldn't put this book down. To my mind this is Agatha Christie's most absorbing work the story of her own fascinating and unconventional life which gently unfolds to the reader complemented by her subtle, dry wit. She covers so much in this work: an idyllic Victorian childhood, youthful romances, dashed aspirations to be an opera singer or a classical pianist, two marriages the first of which ended in divorce, her daughte [...]


    5. I finally FINISHED!! *angels start singing*This book has been sitting on my currently reading list for 5 months and one day, filling me with guilt and trepidation. But I did it! I finished it!And to be honest, it was a good book. Agatha Christie is warm, funny, and interesting. I enjoyed reading more about her life. It helped that I already had a fairly good idea of her life going in. She is rather selective in her subjects, which is fine! This is her autobiography. The problem with this book is [...]


    6. Wer kennt den Namen Agatha Christie nicht? Sie war die Meisterin des englischen Krimis, ihre Bücher haben sich überall in der Welt verkauft und haben sie zu einer der meistgelesenen Schriftstellern gemacht. Mit Miss Marple und Hercule Poirot hat sie Detektive geschaffen, die schon lange Kultstatus erreicht haben. Ihr Bühnenstück ‚Die Mausefalle‘, wird jeden Tag im Londoner West End seit 1952 aufgeführt. Ob ‚Tod auf dem Nil‘, ‚Mord im Orient-Express‘ oder ‚Zeugin der Anklage‘ [...]


    7. I don’t often read biographies - pretty rarely in fact - but Agatha Christie being one of my all time favourite authors, it seemed rude not to. First impression - this is one big book! Fear not however, it reads very easily and fast. Christie’s voice comes through her sentences, and it is one full of character and humour. From witnessing her Victorian childhood to married life, passing through not one but two world wars, I was enthralled! I was also many times surprised. Agatha for instance, [...]


    8. Never a great fan of Agatha Christie's works, I was surprised to enjoy her autobiography. I'm not sure what I expected--perhaps an improbably boring story about her swanning around London society and then a great reveal at the end where it turned out her twin sister had written the novels? I didn't get that: Christie was awkward in public, enjoyed travel and archaeology (marrying the great archaeologist of Nineveh and Mosul, Max Mallowan), and was a keen observer of people and society. Her memoi [...]


    9. I have read books about Agatha Christie and so was delighted when I found this in my local second hand bookshop. It's great to hear her life (or parts of her life) in her own words, and she does have a wonderful way of describing things that really does bring it all to life. I liked especially when she talks about her early life, and the morals, standards and ideas of the time (eg swimming costumes, cars, planes, etc).It is a shame that she doesn't talk about her disappearance, but I suppose she [...]


    10. The Good StuffDelightful charming read Fascinating stories of Agatha's life Learned so much about life during the war in England Interesting historical information Enjoyed the chapter where Agatha talks about the production of going swimming as a girl and a women in Victorian England Very wise and accurate observations of life Was actually quite surprised how intriguing of a read it was, had a hard time putting it down on a couple of occasions Absolutley flabergasted that she really never had an [...]


    11. Antes de mais, acho que me posso considerar fã de Agatha Christie, apesar de ainda me faltarem muitos livros para poder dizer que li a maioria da sua obra. Agatha é a escritora mais vendida e traduzida de sempre e acho fantástico termos oportunidade de conhecer a vida dela através das suas próprias palavras. Isto tem prós e contras: se, por um lado, só ela poderia explicar ao leitor a importância que determinados acontecimentos tiveram na sua vida e nos dá uma visão muito particular so [...]


    12. In the world of modern autobiography, it often seems that many memoirs are written by good writers who have had nothing much happen to them, or by people who've lived very interesting lives but have no particular talent for writing about them. This book is a wonderful journey to the days when writing your memoirs was a task reserved for a late life reflection on all you've accomplished, and Agatha Christie (even sans detectives) can certainly spin a good story.This book was written in 1965, when [...]


    13. Once again a diamond found via swapping. This book is not only excellently written, it's also (unfortunately, in my eyes) very carefully written so as to keep a lot of the negative truths hidden.She ignores completely her disappearance and the fact that BOTH her husbands not only cheated on her, but did so multiple times. These are three major life affecting things she either glosses over or completely ignores when she had the opportunity to discuss how these things affected her life, her feelin [...]


    14. I loved this book, first published in 1977. Early on in her life, she showed us examples of her very imaginary mind, despite having trouble with writing and spelling. The family thought she was 'slow'. I loved her mention of favourite books too from her youth and I found myself going and researching these titles. Despite the constant encouragement by her family, Agatha never believed she could write. Her very first book, Mystery at Styles had several rejections from publishers and for a time she [...]


    15. Για θαυμαστές της Αγκάθα Κρίστι, επιβάλλεται να διαβάσουν την αυτοβιογραφία της. Εκτός του ότι έζησε μια πολύ ενδιαφέρουσα ζωή, εάν μετά ξαναδιαβάσεις τα αστυνομικά της μυθιστορήματα, ανακαλύπτεις επιπλέον διαστάσεις στους χαρακτήρες και τις καταστάσεις.


    16. Αγαπημένη Agatha, λατρευω όλα τα βιβλια της. Αυτό ηταν το καλύτερο της νομίζω, γράφει με απλότητα και χιούμορ για την συναρπαστική ζωή που έζησε.



    17. One of the most sunny and cozy books I’ve ever read! Agatha Christie was a person I would love to be friends with. Easy in a good way, a bit ironic, sometimes sad, but always life-asserting, this book gifted me with great reading time. Would recommend to anyone.


    18. Reading Agatha Christie's memoir was like dropping in for tea and cozy chats with a dear friend, chats full of humor, philosophy and meandering reminiscences. I started the book with some mild curiosity about her life and career, but over the course of the five months I spent reading it interspersed with other books, my admiration for the author grew. In the end, I felt real affection for her. And I gained a better perspective on the tremendous changes that took place in the world during her lif [...]


    19. A lovely autobiography by Agatha Christie. The same way of writing I enjoy so much in her detective stories, even though I can't exactly pinpoint what it is. Perhaps a sort of elegance of simplicity and a slightly more classic English? At least it makes me feel all warm and cozy inside.I had hoped she would write more about her books and writing, even though her life in Victorian times is quite interesting too. There's little tidbits of information about her stories here and there. I was slightl [...]


    20. * * * * 1/2For those who have wondered what the "Queen of Crime" was really like, this autobiography ought to give you a pretty good idea. It was first started in the 1950s and continued until about 1975, written in a rough chronological order but by no means a scholarly account. Christie herself likened it to a "lucky dip", where she would dip her hand in and see what memories she dredged up.Agatha’s personality fairly leaps from the page. I admire her resilience in the face of adversity, her [...]


    21. Agatha Christie had always left me engrossed with the many mysteries and adventures of Miss Marple and Poirot. I remember reading Sidney Sheldon's autobiography and exclaiming how much it resembled the style he chose for his fiction; his life seemed like a roller coaster ride with sudden turns that could only be expected out of a fictional thriller plot. Picking up Christie's autobiography with the same expectations, of course I was left slightly taken aback by how vastly different hers was from [...]


    22. Despite the fact that this was beautfully written and chock full of details about a fascinating life, I can only give it 3 stars. There were almost too many details for my taste especially about her childhood, for which she had a very good memory. I was most interested about Christie's writing life and these portions were few and far between. I did learn that she was hesitant to critique other writers' work because she didn't want to discourage anyone, especially beginners.Because it's an autobi [...]


    23. This was ok a bit slow-moving and I never found myself more than mildly interested. I liked best the sections about her childhood, although it was also interesting to learn that she had training as a pharmacist and a nurse in WWI.She never gives much more away about herself or her family than she does about the characters in her books; everyone remains drawn in pretty broad strokes. It reads like a person trying to present a good image of themselves to the world. You do get a sense that there ar [...]


    24. Absolutely charming, witty, wise and delightful. I have never read an Agatha Christie book but after listening to her narrate her autobiography I am ready to begin placing each one on hold from the library. I feel like a fool admitting it but I had no idea she wrote short stories and plays (very, very successful plays). I had only known of her as a writer of detective stories, which are not my first, second or third genre of choice. Because I avoided the genre I knew nothing of her or her vast b [...]


    25. An absorbing read for me. What an extraordinary life Agatha Christie had: from her Victorian upbringing in a well-to-do household, to a much more austere life after her father died, to her first husband Colonel Christie who took her on travels around the world, to her amazing rise as the Queen of the detective story, to her impulsive solo trips to the Middle East after her marriage dissolved and finally meeting her second husband (an archeologist) who took her with him all all his "digs" WOW! Re [...]


    26. It's finally over! After two months of slug-reading I can proudly say that I finished it. Now, why exactly this is important I wouldn't know. I was interested in the writing life of an author such as Agatha Christie but I got very little of that - like 7% of the whole book. It was mostly about her childhood, her married life (both husbands) and the archaelogical diggs (which was the only interesting thing I could find here). I mean why on earth would I care about the curtain patterns, the sturdi [...]


    27. Surprisingly, this book is not tightly written like her detective novels. It tends to ramble and she goes into excruciating detail on the topics that interest her (servants, boyfriends, clothes, travelling, etc.) She does not write all that much about her writing career. She doesn't seem at all passionate about it-she admits that she wrote books to make money. I get the feeling she wrote this book to please herself and her loved ones, not necessarily to make the general public happy. Which is fi [...]


    28. I read biographies so slowly. This one took awhile to get through. Interesting, personalized insight into Agatha's life, she had the ability to remember some very minor details most of us would have forgotten. I like how she began her biography discussing the love of her family home, Ashfield, and then closed it with Ashfield being gone and missing it. She definitely enjoyed houses and travel! Really that's what most of the book was about. She barely talks about writing and books, not really. It [...]
