Agatha Christie

Agatha Christie is the world's best known mystery writer. Her books have sold over a billion copies in the English language and another billion in 44 foreign languages. She is the most widely published author of all time in any language, outsold only by the Bible and Shakespeare.

Her writing career spanned more than half a century, during which she wrote 79 novels and short story collections, as well as 14 plays, one of which, The Mousetrap, is the longest-running play in history. Two of the characters she created, the brilliant little Belgian Hercule Poirot and the irrepressible and relentless Miss Marple, went on to become world-famous detectives. Both have been widely dramatized in feature films and made-for-TV movies.

Agatha Christie also wrote six romantic novels under the pseudonym Mary Westmacott. As well, she wrote four nonfiction books including an autobiography and an entertaining account of the many expeditions she shared with her archaeologist husband Sir Max Mallowan.

Agatha Christie died in 1976.

    Oh, for six stars!

    Anyone, anyone on earth, but ESPECIALLY anyone who reads Hercule Poirot novels---- CURTAIN WILL BLOW YOUR MIND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's the mother of all Agatha Christie novels. The big one. The explosion. The end. Finis. Encore! Don't even try to discover the murderer because he/she is perfect and makes no mistakes. I want everyone who reads this review to go read Curtain NOW. It is the most harrowing, dynamite novel ever written by Agatha Christie, and is that ever saying something! This is where is all comes together. When you finish reading Curtain, the most you will be able to do is stare silently and gape at the last page.

    Christie's CURTAIN

    In a word - TERRIFIC! With this final Poirot novel Christie comes full circle. And it is one that do tax 'the little grey cells'. For any Christie/Poirot fan this is a must read.

    Styles Court is again the scene of a shocking crime which Poirot must solve but it will be his last.

    I really enjoyed this novel I think it was very clever to use Styles Court which was Poirot's first case is once again the scene of his last case. It was nice to have Captain Hastings work with his old friend on their final adventure together. The plot is great. Styles used to be the ancestral home of the Cavendish family now it has turned into a guest house for paying guests. One of these same paying guests is a vicious and dangerous mass murderer who is responsible for five unrealted murders. Despite being in a wheelchair and crippled with arthrtis Poirot still uses his remarkable little gray cells to pinpoint between these seemingly innocent characters a cunning killer. This is a glowing end for Poirot. The book has many shocking plot twists that you won't I REPEAT YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO PUT THIS DOWN AND YOU WILL BE STUNNED AND SURPRISED.

    Another Great book by the Queen of Crime

    Although i really enjoyed this book, I have to admit, it was a little slow at the beginning. Once the murder was comitted, things started to speed up and, as always, I got more interested. She got my attention with her unique style of writing and held it through the entire book. I plan on reading more of her books too!

She captures you the entire book. I guarentee that you will have an extremely hard time putting it down. You will enjoy every minute of it.
