I have been a fan of Agatha Christie for many years. I keep going back to her over and over again, whether I am reading one of her stories or watching on TV. Miss Marple in particular is one of my favorites. These stories are typical Jane Marple. You are dragged into the narrative and watch as Jane Marple slowly figures out the mystery kicking yourself for not noticing the solution yourself. They are a good late night read, because each chapter is a complete story unto itself. I already own the entire collection in hardcover, but the e-books are much easier to transport and pick up where I left off, cause I don't have to worry about the bookmark falling out.

I love rereading these wonderful stories and to have them in one e-book is great. Just wish there were more of them.

Written in the typical Agatha Christie style. Enjoyable, easy reading. All the Miss Marple short stories in one book. Overall, well edited with only a couple of minor transcription errors.

A wonderful compilation of shorts with all of our favorite characters. Miss Marple shows her skills based on her little town observations.
