Agatha Christie

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. Christie was born in Torquay, Devon in 1890. She died in 1976 in Wallingford, Oxfordshire.

Biography

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 a short story collection, 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 Belgian detective 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 died in 1976.

    The Unexpected Murderer

    I loved the book. It kept me interested the entire way through. Every time I would get to the end of a chapter or think that I had figured out the mystery; new evidence would pop up and prove me wrong or leave me hanging. I had many guesses about the murderer ,but would never in a million years have guessed the answer to this mystery. This book was so good; I think that I could read this book over and over and never get bored with it.

    What A Twist!

    Seven dials is in fact a pastiche of the'thrillers' popular in the twenties and -at the end- a total subversion of the tropes of that genre that some readers find hard to stomach. You will be surprised, and possibly dismayed.

    Not her best, but still a good escape

    This book didn't have me enthralled like her books normally do. If you want to read this book, you may want to read "Chimneys" first. Several characters appear in both books and several references are made to a party gone wrong that was in "Chimneys". I had a hard time getting into the plot and it took me longer to read this book than I usually take to read her books. You will still enjoy a creative story plot and characters that aren't always what they appear to be. I wouldn't read this book again, but it was an ok read.

    The Return of Bundle Brent

    First of all I have to say I loved this book and I'm going to have to put it up near the top of my favorite Christie books. This book brought back a fun loving character from a previous books, "Bundle" Brent who first appeared in The Secret of Chimneys, she shines in this one. Like most of Dame Agatha's female characters, Bundle is a strong minded woman who not only solves the case but finds love all at the same time.

    I really can't get into too much of the overall storyline as it would give too much away but I will say while there are a few murders, this book reads more like a spy vs. spy read though you aren't sure which incidents are really red herrings that are leading the reader down a path that really doesn't exist. I have to say I was surprised by the ending and I wouldn't have had it any other way. This was a affirmation for me of how good Agatha Christie really was at mapping out plot line that has twists, turns, and false paths that all make sense at the end.

    A book of mystery!

    Among the many famous mystery writers in the world, Agatha Christie is known as the "Queen of Crimes". One of her worldwide famous story, The Seven Dials Mystery, absorbs the reader completely into the book.
    Eileen Brent, whom people usually call Bundle, sees a guy being shot right in front of her eyes. His last words - "The seven dials" - make her inquisitive and she wants to find out more about the secret society and why it murders people. As she finds out, she realizes that some things are not as they seem.
    Some of the things I liked about the book was that it has a twist in the end. When I finished the book, I realized that almost none of my guesses were right. Also, the beginning of the book was a bit dragging, so it may appear boring at first, but as you get more into the story, it becomes full of suspense. It becomes hard to put the book back down. I recommend this book to mystery lovers and fans of Agatha Christie.

    Excellent for a rainy day

    "The Seven Dials Mystery" is an excellent Christie; it has suspense, action, obviously mystery, and a bit of romance thrown in. The characters are intriguing and likable and I for one was pleasantly shocked at the final reveal. I highly recommend it for any Christie fan or anyone looking for a good mystery!

    Dials good Until the End

    Seven Dials mystery is my 15th Agatha Christie Novel. As usual, the novel was excellent until the end of the novel when the person who was the killer was a shocker, but not in a good way. I prefer to say that Murder on the Orient Express was far better as well as The Murder of Roger Ackroyd for their originality. Overall, however, Dials was pretty good despite the ending.

    Cool

    This was my third agatha cristie book, it was awesome, never guessed the ending, clue: it seems to me the murderer is the person who is farthest from your mind as the person "whodunit"has a lot of action.
