It wasn't exactly as portrayed in the synopsis. This book is a brief bio of the highlights of Ms Christie's life and career and includes 3 excerpts from her series and stand alone books. Not bad, but not what it said it was.

Three short stories. Minimal biographical information. Buy a collection of her shortstories or her book "An Autobiography"

I would not have purchased this if I had been able to recieve a solid sample of it. Much of the book contains lists that I could have pulled up on the internet. This is the first nook purchase I've made that I was really disappointed with :(

Brief history of her life, but does not live up to the promise of the title.

but this seems much shorter than the title would have you believe. I can't say I'm disappointed, just a little surprised. Still, a good read.

I had watched a documentary of Agatha Christie a few years ago and found the book to come short of the whole story.

This is a short introduction (77 pages) to all of the First Lady of Mystery's works. It also includes three lesser known stories of three of her best known characters. It was a very interesting read that filled in some details that I never knew about Christie. She wrote more widely than I'd ever realized. Christie fans should read this. Mystery fans should read this as well.

I had begun haphazardly reading or rereading Mrs. Christie's stories. I wanted to focus. This book has sorted it all out for me, and has given me a better understanding of the writer. Expectations fulfilled.

not worth the cost. i bought it, skimmed through it. and never looked at it again. it only has three of her short stories, and a minimal amount of information. certainly not a good start off for new Christie readers.

Interesting book for learning more about Agatha Christie, her career, and her inspiration. Includes introductory stories for her primary detective characters---"The Affair at the Victory Ball" for Poirot, "Greenshaw's Folly" for Miss Marple, and "A Fairy in the Flat" for Tommy and Tuppence. The section on Christie's work in a dispensary and subsequent education in poisons was quite interesting, and the "Agatha Christie A to Z" was charming.

For those who don't know much about Ag. Chr., this is a good introduction. Was glad to learn about here, but also glad it was free.
