    About "Agatha Christie"

      • Agatha Christie

        Agatha Christie also wrote romance novels under the pseudonym Mary Westmacott, and was occasionally published under the name Agatha Christie Mallowan.Agatha Christie is the best selling author of all time She wrote eighty crime novels and story collections, fourteen plays, and several other books Her books have sold roughly four billion copies and have been translated into 45 languages She is the creator of the two most enduring figures in crime literature Hercule Poirot and Miss Jane Marple and author of The Mousetrap, the longest running play in the history of modern theatre Agatha Mary Clarissa Miller was born in Torquay, Devon, England, U.K as the youngest of three The Millers had two other children Margaret Frary Miller 1879 1950 , called Madge, who was eleven years Agatha s senior, and Louis Montant Miller 1880 1929 , called Monty, ten years older than Agatha During the First World War, she worked at a hospital as a nurse later working at a hospital pharmacy, a job that influenced her work, as many of the murders in her books are carried out with poison.On Christmas Eve 1914 Agatha married Archibald Christie, an aviator in the Royal Flying Corps The couple had one daughter, Rosalind Hicks They divorced in 1928, two years after Christie discovered her husband was having an affair.Her first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, came out in 1920 During this marriage, Agatha published six novels, a collection of short stories, and a number of short stories in magazines.In late 1926, Agatha s husband, Archie, revealed that he was in love with another woman, Nancy Neele, and wanted a divorce On 8 December 1926 the couple quarreled, and Archie Christie left their house Styles in Sunningdale, Berkshire, to spend the weekend with his mistress at Godalming, Surrey That same evening Agatha disappeared from her home, leaving behind a letter for her secretary saying that she was going to Yorkshire Her disappearance caused an outcry from the public, many of whom were admirers of her novels Despite a massive manhunt, she was not found for eleven days.In 1930, Christie married archaeologist Max Mallowan Sir Max from 1968 after joining him in an archaeological dig Their marriage was especially happy in the early years and remained so until Christie s death in 1976 In 1977, Mallowan married his longtime associate, Barbara Parker.Christie frequently used familiar settings for her stories Christie s travels with Mallowan contributed background to several of her novels set in the Middle East Other novels such as And Then There Were None were set in and around Torquay, where she was born Christie s 1934 novel Murder on the Orient Express was written in the Hotel Pera Palace in Istanbul, Turkey, the southern terminus of the railway The hotel maintains Christie s room as a memorial to the author The Greenway Estate in Devon, acquired by the couple as a summer residence in 1938, is now in the care of the National Trust.Christie often stayed at Abney Hall in Cheshire, which was owned by her brother in law, James Watts She based at least two of her stories on the hall the short story The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding, which is in the story collection of the same name, and the novel After the Funeral Abney became Agatha s greatest inspiration for country house life, with all the servants and grandeur which have been woven into her plots.During the Second World War, Christie worked in the pharmacy at University College Hospital of University College, London, where she acquired a knowledge of poisons that she put to good use in her post war crime novels To honour her many literary works, she was appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire in the 1956 New Year Honours The next year, she became the President of the Detection Club In the 1971 New Year Honours she was promoted Dame Commande

    3. Sacré! It took me only 2 days to literally devour this book. I most certainly didn't saw that coming, I never could guessed who was the murderer, Agatha did good job!


    4. So, as the title says, Lord Edgeware dies. His wife tells everyone she’s going to kill him and how. But when he does get killed she has an air tight alibi, even though she was seen at the scene of the crime. It’s up to Poirot to find the true murderer. I don’t think I’ve read a Poirot book before where he says, “I was wrong!” so many times. This one stumped him for quite awhile.


    5. الصراحة الواحد مبقاش مستغرب من تغفيلة أجاثا كل مرة بتبعتنا في حته والقاتل في رواية تانية اساسالكن المرة ده اه طبعا نفس التغفيلة لكن حبكة النهاية فيها غلطة انا مش هحرق الرواية لاصدقائي لكن فيه دليل مهم جدا بيكشف القاتل فيه غلطة واضحة عرفت تعبك وبهدلتك يا عبد الرحمن لما تعصر د [...]


    6. This is probably my second favorite Agatha Christie novel, right behind "The Murder of Roger Ackroyd." It also has a special place in my heart because it was the first Agatha Christie novel that I actually read. This book made me want to actually read more Christie novels instead of merely watching the film and/or television adaptations. Generally speaking, I love "Lord Edgeware Dies" because I immensely enjoy all of the elements of the book. First, I found the story itself very engaging. Specif [...]


    7. I have never until recently been a mystery reader, so I kind of have a meta-view of them, in a way. I think: what is the attraction to this kind of tightly plotted tale? Maybe it gives us comfort that seemingly intractable problems like global warming can, with a little pluck and luck and Reason and Order, get figured out in time for tea! If we are in the hands of guys like Poirot, we will be JUST FINE.Anyway, so in this one the problem is seemingly straightforward: Lord Edgware Dies. Surprise! [...]


    8. Okay, so when you read a book within the Hercule Poirot Series you know you're going to get one thing and one thing only: a mysterious murder. However, the title of this book gives away who the victim is - Lord Edgware. Now of course the person you're going to think killed him would be his wife because the women basically boasted that she was going to kill him and how she would do it. But when he died she had an alibi which obviously made me suspicious as fuck.I feel like Agatha Christie loves t [...]

    10. Absolutely classic Christie--this is the sort of novel that makes her reputation as Queen of Crime so richly deserved. I'd read it before and STILL got tangled in the red herrings and double, no triple, twists to the point that I questioned whether I had mis-remembered the solution. Poirot is at his best, and so is Hastings--we have to remember that Hastings, without meaning to be, is not a reliable narrator. He puts his own pedestrian spin on things: a suspect says something crucial, and Hastin [...]

    13. Me ha gustado muchisimo. Me encanta la manera de escribir de Agatha y como lleva a cabo toda la trama. Es genial :) Me tengo que ir haciendo con la colección poco a poco!


    14. This is one of the early Agatha Christie books, written in the 1930's it is also an early Poirot novel in which the bumbling, very British, Captain Hastings is very much the Watson to Poirot's Holmes. It also features Inspector Japp of Scotland Yard and it is noticeable how little developed that character is compared to later books.The plot is as given by the title; Lord Edgeware Dies, who killed him? There are a few possibilities all fortuitously known to Poirot and hence to us, the readers. Th [...]


    15. Η Αγκαθα Κρίστι ποτέ δεν με απογοητεύει το υποψιάστηκα μέχρι την μέση όμως μετά μου έριξε στάχτη στα μάτια. Έπρεπε να είχα πιστέψει την πρώτη μου υποψία. Εν πάση περιπτώσει, το δίαβασα μέσα σε ένα πρωινό δεν άλλαξα καν θέση.


    16. A very enjoyable mystery to flex your brain to. I had a correct suspicion of the true murderer, and I thought the identity wasn't veiled as cleverly as in some other Christie's novels, but I could not figure out how the crime was committed and how the evidence fit together. The book ended in one of those confession notes that Christie utilized on several occasions throughout her literary career, which I don't particularly love, but Poirot's red herrings in the final reveal were brilliant and hil [...]


    17. আমার পড়া ক্রিস্টির সেকেন্ড বই। আগেরটা দুর্দান্ত ছিল। এটাও ভালো লেগে গেল। আসল অপরাধী বাদে আমি সবাইকে সন্দেহ করে ফেলেছি। আর মার্ডার মিস্ট্রির এটাই তো মজা।অনুবাদক সুখপাঠ্য ছিল। ক্রিস্টির ইং [...]


    18. Mais uma vez Agatha Christie apresenta-nos um crime intrincado e brilhantemente construído.Jane Wilkinson disse para quem quis ouvir que queria o marido morto. Disse que se meteria num táxi e o mataria ela mesma. Pouco tempo depois Lord Edgware estava morto e havia testemunhas que afirmavam que Jane Wilkinson o tinha ido visitar nessa noite e que tinha sido a últimaa pessoa a o ver com vida. Mas existe um outro grupo de pessoas que afirma que nessa fatídica noite, Jane Wilkinson estava num j [...]


    19. Lord Edgware Dies is another classic crime mystery novel by my all time favourite author, Dame Agatha Christie. This is the ninth novel from the Hercule Poirot series. It is a somewhat baffling case, even for the genius that is Hercule Poirot. Narrated by Poirot's companion Captain Hastings, Lord Edgware Dies is a mystery that will keep readers turning the page. It may be easy for readers to figure out who the murderer is, but not for them to figure out the entire story behind the murder. The ch [...]


    20. Dame Agatha likes to use disguise and/or bogus identity as a key plot device. Seeing a GR review, I took out my copy for a reread as I was reminded of a Sketchbook prank inspired by this whodunit. I'm not fond of big cocktailers, but sometimes one "has" to go. There I stood, bored to hell, not knowing anyone other than the hostess, and drinking too much champagne.Oh, there's someone I know, the artist Neil Smithson (not real name). We fell into lite chatter. Soon we were interrupted by a young w [...]



    21. I think Lord Edgware Dies has its own uniqueness.It might not be different from AC other books, but the setting was so straight forward that you can really guess firsthand who was the murderer.It just that, when you read further you will ask yourself questions like why this character did this, was these two people connected, was there any affair between them, was she there when this and that, and many other questions. All this questions will make you re consider your list of suspects. You might [...]


    22. Not too much to say just another great Agatha Christie novel! I wavered back and forth between a few suspects and was fairly surprised by the revelation at the end.


    23. A typical, wonderful and very enjoyable Hercule Poirot novel BUT a little too predictive for my taste :)


    24. এ শুধু আগাথার পক্ষেই সম্ভব! গোটা গল্পটার কাহিনি ছোট-বড় সমস্ত টুইস্ট-সহ আগেভাগেই জেনে ফেলার পরও বই পড়ার পরও নাড়িয়ে দেয়া--এ শুধু আগাথার মতন কোন লেখকের পক্ষেই সম্ভব। শি ইয সাচ আ ডেভিল।


    25. Yes, this is my fourth Agatha Christie of the week, but unfortunately this one is my least favourite of the ones I've read so far.Sadly I found this mystery confusing purely due to the amount of characters there were. I couldn't keep up with who was who and I found that Poirot didn't feel like his usual sharp self in this.The mystery seemed to drag out, mainly because of my confusion regarding characters, but I also found that it was a little too convoluted, with so many things happening in one [...]


    26. One of Agatha Christie's great mysteries full of plot twists and many suspects!However,i got it this time!I found the murderer before Hercule Poirot by simply guessing.It's supposed to be an unexpected ending,however i saw it coming.It was crystal clear!!!!Three and a half stars from me!


    27. Reviewed 7/23/14.William Morrow, do you think we are complete idiots? This cover: what the fuck? Why would you treat your readers with such disdain? This cover image has nothing, literally nothing, to do with anything in the book. What is on the cover? A bible, open to the book of Nehemiah. No bible features in the novel. No book of Nehemiah. No one named Nehemiah. There is a handgun on the open bible. No gun features in the novel. No one is shot. (Method of murders: stabbed, given an overdose o [...]


    28. Also known as Mr. Edgegrave dies.This one isn't as good as most of Christie's other books are, especially with Hercule Poirot as the detective, but it is readable. It is told through the narrative of Hastings, of whom I'm only a mild fan. He is a typical sidekick similar to Watkins, where he gets much wrong, but he doesn't have much about him that stands out.Poirot and Hastings are brought together to an actress who fully admits she'd kill her husband, and seeks their help on getting a divorce s [...]
