For the first decade or so of Christie’s car...

I haven't really focused on Christie's non-Poirot/Marple books. Last year I said j would read all of Christie's other books and I just got busy and lost interest. Now I'm ready to take a look at her other works. There's also a rereleased of a biography coming out soon about Christie that I can't wai...

This is the fourth of five Christie novels I have planned for Halloween Bingo, and the first Tommy and Tuppence novel I've read. I quite enjoyed it, though Tommy and Tuppence were at bit...much at the beginning. Once things got more serious and down to business they were much more bearable. I pr...

Agatha Christie did it again. She completely fooled me and my initial suspicion has been wrong. Not that I didn´t expect this, because, let´s be honest, it´s an Agatha Christie novel. She just knows how to use red herrings. I have to admit, though, that I´m not a big fan of her spy / secret organi...

I am a great fan of Agatha Christie's murder mysteries. However, I am unfamiliar with this, the 'Tommy and Tuppence' series, but decided to read this one alongside a friend from halfway around the world, who was reading it for her book club. I really quite enjoyed this espionage style story, make ev...

I am an Agatha Christie fan--honest I am. I can number as favorites And Then There Were None, Murder on the Orient Express, The Murder of Roger Ackroyd and Death Comes at the End all of which I'd rate at five stars. Even books I don't count as favorites I usually consider a fun read worth the time, ...
