    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

    2. I went into this book with a bit of an attitude. Roger Ackroyd is the only Agatha Christie book featured on the list of 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die, and I was skeptical about the List's claim that this was the only Christie book worth reading. But, as much as it pains me to say this, I think the List is right on this one. At least a little - I'm definitely not suggesting that you should read this book and then never pick up a Christie novel ever again, but if you find yourself in a s [...]

    3. I read mysteries in between denser reads and Dame Christie never disappoints me. As in all of her cases involving Inspector Hercule Poirot, Christie unearths layer upon layer of the case, leaving her readers guessing until the very end. Just when you think whodunit, she throws in a twist by revealing a key clue that only Poirot could have thought of. Occasionally, I guess the criminal, but other times I am left stumped. This time, in The Murder of Roger Ackroyd, Christie leaves me hanging until [...]

    4. Wow just Wow! Agatha Christie had me from the first page, hook line & sinker and she never lost my attention until the very end. No wonder this is considered to be one of her very best.I do not want to say too much about this book, I mean the title pretty much tells you what it is about and to go too much further into any details runs the risk of spoilers. If there are others out there, like me, who are late in the game of reading this I do not want to spoil that experience for them in any w [...]

    5. Agatha Christie offers her readers an invite, an invite to come and solve her tantalising murder mystery.It was a real tricky one, though I did have my suspicions very early on. There was a certain emphasis on a tiny bit of information that we didn’t really need to know that gave the game away. It added little to the story and, for me, only had the purpose of giving her killer an excuse not to be the killer. So it was obviously that person. Most readers seem to have been utterly dumbfounded at [...]

    6. لا شك أن هذه الرواية هي من أجمل وأغرب وأعقد ما قرأت لأجاثاالنهاية كانت صادمة وخارجة عن كل التوقعات , وكان التشويق سيد الموقف في كل صفحة من صفحات الروايةهذه الرواية إبداع حقيقي من السيدة أجاثاأنصحكم بها يا أصدقاء

    7. Dear Agatha Christie,You tricked my mind with style and I love you for it!xxTerrific, outstanding, spectacular, and everything in between…What can I say about this book that hasn’t already been said? It’s brilliant, simply and utterly brilliant!This book is the reason why Agatha Christie’s my all time favourite writer.At 4am, I found myself feverishly flipping through the pages, trying to get to the bottom of the mystery, which I only figured out towards the end of the book. This unputdo [...]

    8. Just finished a re-read of this classic. I remember the first time I read it, the twist at the end knocked my socks off! My second thought was: "Agatha Christie understands evil in a way that is a little frightening!"This time through, I remembered how it turns out (which is not always the case!), and was able to watch the clues with the murderer in mind. An astonishingly masterful piece of work.When it was first published, in 1926, this book caused quite a stir, because no one had ever used thi [...]

    9. A mystery that lasts till the last page and ends with an unprecedented plot twist.One of the favorite books that I read in 2015. Nothing much can be said about the story or plot, or anything for that matter, without dropping a major spoiler. But trust me, it's bloody clever. Agatha Christie will leave you dazzled. One of her finest.Highly Recommended!

    10. This Hercule Poirot is a genuine tour de force, a classic of the genre, for a very good reason that you will understand perfectly as soon as you have finish reading it.

    11. Choose Your Own Adventure!You are a country doctor living in a cozy English village - and your friend has been murdered! Suspects abound. Whispers and secrets and dastardly blackmail surround you. Your sister prattles on. The situation becomes increasingly aggravating and even worse, your nosy and very foreign neighbor decides to make your private business his own. His bizarre Belgian behavior soon becomes quite intolerable. Whatever is a country doctor to do?If you decide to take a nice long tr [...]

    12. Soo, I have heard a lot of wonderful things about this book and about this great ending. I am a huge fan of Agatha Christie stories and they are the "Perfect" cozy mysteries for me. Whenever I read a cozy mystery, I end up comparing it to Christie novels.My personal favorites are And Then There Were None , Murder on the Orient Express. If you haven't read these, go ahead and give them a try.So as this book is counted in top 1000 mystery books, I definitely wanted to be ahead of Christie or shoul [...]

    13. Η αλήθεια είναι πως έχω συναντηθεί με την Αγκάθα Κρίστι και στο παρελθόν, αλλά μπορώ να πω, πως μόνο αυτές τις ημέρες την γνώρισα. Ο λόγος είναι ότι όταν την διάβασα στην προεφηβεία, το τελευταίο πράγμα που είχα στο μυαλό μου είναι να λύνω φόνους. Και έτσι στο πέρασμα του χρόν [...]

    15. Rating: 4* of five **THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE AGATHA CHRISTIE'S POIROT EPISODE AS WELL AS THE BOOK**The Publisher Says: In the village of King's Abbot, a widow's sudden suicide sparks rumors that she murdered her first husband, was being blackmailed, and was carrying on a secret affair with the wealthy Roger Ackroyd. The following evening, Ackroyd is murdered in his locked study--but not before receiving a letter identifying the widow's blackmailer. King's Abbot is crawling with suspects, includin [...]

    16. صفحة 327 كان رد فعلي زي الصورة اللي تحت دي حرفيًا وعارف إني مش لوحدي اللي عملت كدة :D الصراحة أنا معرفش الناس بتكتب ايه في ريفيوهاتها عن روايات أجاثا، معرفش ايه اللي ممكن يتقال يعني!، دي واحدة شغلتها إنها " تغفّلنا " يا جماعة كل مرة وتطلّعنا محدودي الذكاء والبصيرة، اللي هو كل ما ن [...]

    17. Leída en dos sentadas, es una de las novelas de misterio que más me han gustado. La verdad es que no es un género que lea normalmente, pero sí que me va conquistando poco a poco, y creo que es la novela justa para hacer que me enamore del género y continúe con él durante más tiempo.A Agatha Christie tan solo la había catado con Diez negritos, y pese a gustarme, eché en falta un final que cambiase completamente la historia. Y El asesinato de Roger Ackroyd lo ha conseguido. Cada detalle [...]

    18. The Murder of Roger Ackroyd: Something Hidden "The truth, however ugly in itself, is always curious and beautiful to the seeker after it."-Hercule PoirotHercule Poirot appears for the third time in a novel. Remarkably, after only two novels, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, and The Murder on the Links, we find that Poirot has retired and taken a house, The Larches, in the fictional village of King's Abbot, near the home of his friend Roger Ackroyd.Unlike the previous Poirot outings, the narrator [...]

    19. Thực tế thì vài tháng gần đây mình không mua sách của NXB Trẻ để coi như 1 sự phản đối nho nhỏ (và tất nhiên là trong vô vọng) đối với loại giấy xốp mà họ đang sử dụng để in. Đó là 1 loại giấy rất đau thương :| Nhưng cuối cùng vẫn ko kìm đc cõi lòng lúc chọn để được tặng cuốn này khi trúng giải của 1 trò review dạo linh tinh trên fb :3 Với sự thiếu kiên trung ấy thì có lẽ mình [...]

    20. Where to start, well I saw a few other people wanted to read this as a Buddy read, so whilst on a Miss Marple kick (challenge) I thought why not. I cannot remember ever having read this or even seeing it as a TV adaptation and did not guess the ending until right at the very end.The central characters of Dr Sheppard and his sister Caroline are excellent, with the Dr playing the Hastings role for Poirot. I think the story is well constructed with many twists and turns, and overall generally good [...]

    21. سأكتفي بجملة واحدة تلخص هذه الرواية بأكملهامن الذي قتل السيد روجر أكرويد ؟

    22. “The things young women read nowadays and profess to enjoy positively frighten me.” It's kind of funny that I read Agatha Christie for years and didn't know until a few years back that this was one of her most famous books. I'd heard of the others, but this always fell under my radar until this year. Now that I've read it, does it deserve it's rep? I have to say yes, yes it does. I was starting to suspect the ending turn-out, but it was still done in such a delightful and clever away that pr [...]

    23. M. Poirot, what were you thinking? Retiring to a small village to grow vegetable marrows? I too would hurl them in fits of regret! As if marrows could suitably engage those little grey cells!Excellent depiction of the competitive sport of gossip. Small communities everywhere suffer from it. That is one of the reasons that I came to live in a city—I can actually keep my private life relatively private! Dame Agatha really did set the patterns for current mystery literature, didn’t she? Very, v [...]

    24. قررت ترتيب مكتبتي ( المخربطه ) فسحبت الرواية هذه وقلت في نفسي من زمان عن أغاثا كريستي (مع إني كنت مغرمه فيها ) جلست ع الأرض جنب المكتبه قلبت في الكتاب قليلاً وبعدين بديت أقراء لم أعيده إلا حينما عرفت من قتل (روجر أكرويد) فعلاً أغاثا عجيبه في الحبكات الكل متهم والكل لديه دوافع قتل [...]

    25. Wow!! :) Now I'm a big fan of Christie ^_^ I have an ear to ear smile of satisfaction :) that's a very wide smile indeed ^_^Christie fooled me I admit made me think of other suspects, so surely thinking it was one of them and I was just waiting for the moment when one of two is to be stated as the murderer ! And oopss!! It happened like this! This book was one of many of those I got upon my request as my birthday gift from my dear beloved husband and still there are some more to be read and I [...]

    26. راجع به بی نظیری کتاب همین بس که آگاتا کریستی با این نوشتن این کتاب به شهرت رسیدهمن که خیلی خوشم اومد از این کتاب ، بعد از گذشت چهارسال هنوز بهترین کتاب جنایی ای بوده که خوندم

    27. I'm not very experienced in crime/mystery novels - I read them for light-hearted entertainment between general fiction (this time I needed some air after Steppenwolf). I loved And Then There Were None (link to review), my first Christie novel, last year so I bought three of her acclaimed works at the recent book fair.The things I like about Christie's writing are:- that it makes you feel like you're on the scene yourself- the characterisation: even if ten characters are introduced at the start a [...]

    28. Every new development that arises is like a shake you give to a kaleidoscope - the thing changes entirely in aspect.True of so many of Christie's better works. This particular one has often been voted not only Christie's best, but the best murder mystery ever written. independent/arts-ent My favourite of her works is And Then There Were None but this one would would quite definitely be in my top 5!Far wittier than most Christie's - in particular the Mah Jong scene. A kinder portrayal of servants [...]
