    Agatha Christie also wrote romance novels under the pseudonym Mary Westmacott, and was occasionally published under the name Agatha Christie Mallowan.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 Agatha Mary Clarissa Miller was born in Torquay, Devon, England, U.K as the youngest of three The Millers had two other children Margaret Frary Miller 1879 1950 , called Madge, who was eleven years Agatha s senior, and Louis Montant Miller 1880 1929 , called Monty, ten years older than Agatha During the First World War, she worked at a hospital as a nurse later working at a hospital pharmacy, a job that influenced her work, as many of the murders in her books are carried out with poison.On Christmas Eve 1914 Agatha married Archibald Christie, an aviator in the Royal Flying Corps The couple had one daughter, Rosalind Hicks They divorced in 1928, two years after Christie discovered her husband was having an affair.Her first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, came out in 1920 During this marriage, Agatha published six novels, a collection of short stories, and a number of short stories in magazines.In late 1926, Agatha s husband, Archie, revealed that he was in love with another woman, Nancy Neele, and wanted a divorce On 8 December 1926 the couple quarreled, and Archie Christie left their house Styles in Sunningdale, Berkshire, to spend the weekend with his mistress at Godalming, Surrey That same evening Agatha disappeared from her home, leaving behind a letter for her secretary saying that she was going to Yorkshire Her disappearance caused an outcry from the public, many of whom were admirers of her novels Despite a massive manhunt, she was not found for eleven days.In 1930, Christie married archaeologist Max Mallowan Sir Max from 1968 after joining him in an archaeological dig Their marriage was especially happy in the early years and remained so until Christie s death in 1976 In 1977, Mallowan married his longtime associate, Barbara Parker.Christie frequently used familiar settings for her stories Christie s travels with Mallowan contributed background to several of her novels set in the Middle East Other novels such as And Then There Were None were set in and around Torquay, where she was born Christie s 1934 novel Murder on the Orient Express was written in the Hotel Pera Palace in Istanbul, Turkey, the southern terminus of the railway The hotel maintains Christie s room as a memorial to the author The Greenway Estate in Devon, acquired by the couple as a summer residence in 1938, is now in the care of the National Trust.Christie often stayed at Abney Hall in Cheshire, which was owned by her brother in law, James Watts She based at least two of her stories on the hall the short story The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding, which is in the story collection of the same name, and the novel After the Funeral Abney became Agatha s greatest inspiration for country house life, with all the servants and grandeur which have been woven into her plots.During the Second World War, Christie worked in the pharmacy at University College Hospital of University College, London, where she acquired a knowledge of poisons that she put to good use in her post war crime novels To honour her many literary works, she was appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire in the 1956 New Year Honours The next year, she became the President of the Detection Club In the 1971 New Year Honours she was promoted Dame Commande

  • Back when I had an Audible subscription I acquired 2 literature courses and one of them is called The Secrets of Great Mystery and Suspense Fiction It is a history of the genre and its many ramifications There are quite a few books mentioned and I am planning to read most of them as they appear in the lectures Since Agatha Christie is one of the most important personalities in the history of Crime fiction among Poe, Doyle, Hammett and Chandler her works are extensively present in these lectures [...]


  • Agatha Christie is such a crafty devil that midway through a novel she might have you believing that YOU are the murderer Indeed, The ABC Murders uses slight of hand most deftly Again, I was thrown off the scent of the real killer and was ready to blame others I feel a bit foolish when she dangles bait in front of me, and although I guess it for what it is, I take it anyway And yet, if ever it felt good to be played the fool, it s while reading a cracking good mystery Ah, but never fear, Hercule [...]


  • I try to get my math students to read mysteries, because the logical skills of finding a pattern and using inductive and deductive reasoning are often skillfully laid out If you ve read this book, you know why its one that I use to illustrate that point in my class Sadly, the point is underappreciated by my high school students.


  • The book starts off with a methodical, serial killer sending Hercule Poirot a letter of a future murder Did a person just die and how do they find the victim Enter the mind of the great Agatha Christie.I loved that Agatha Christie went in a completely new direction with this plot She usually does a singular murder, not a manhunt on stopping a serial killer.The last part of the book made this a 4 star book for me It was lagging in the middle for me I didn t think the serial killer was who we were [...]



  • Our weapon is our knowledge But remember, it may be a knowledge we may not know that we possess Agatha ChristieAgatha Christie, the Queen of Mystery, has spun and extremely intriguing crime fiction and the thirteenth tale from her Hercule Poirot series called, The A.B.C Murders that revolves around the anonymous letters stating as well as challenging Poirot that a murder will take place in the alphabetical order in a random town, and that intrigues the clever Poirot to come out of his early reti [...]


  • Agatha Christie is a WITCH I don t know how but she manages to confound me EVERY TIME I read one of her books Specially, with this one You re going with the story, reading with a flow, building up to the climax, and then suddenly whatever you were thinking is snatched away from you, and you begin to look at the things in a way that you never thought of until now.And to do her justice, not only was this story and any of her others thrilling, but it had an element of reality better than most of he [...]


  • Was the killer working his way through the alphabet That s what M Hercule Poirot wanted to know And his offsider Captain Hastings was of the same mind.Andover and the elderly Mrs Ascher Bexhill and a young Miss Betty Barnard and Churston and a gentleman by the name of Sir Carmichael Clarke had all met untimely deaths at the hands of a maniac who would leave the ABC Railway guide near to or on the body, showing each destination as proof he was once again bettering the police, but especially M Poi [...]


  • These alphabetical serial murders are a bit different from the usual Christie crimes or ARE they For once I solved the murder before the end My little gray cells must be working harderor I ve simply read enough of these stories to be a better guesser.


  • Agatha Christie is quickly becoming one of my favourite authors and definitely a go to author for when I fancy a quick pick me up This novel is the 13th book in the Hercule Poirot series, I am reading them out of order as I m just grabbing them from my library s e book collection when they become available although I don t think it matters too much if you read them slightly out of order This novel follows Poirot as he endeavours to solve a series of mysterious murders After receiving an anonymou [...]


  • 3.5 starsEven though this book belongs to the Poirot series it is very different to the other Poirot books Most of the books in this series belong to the cozy mystery genre and the only other time I have read Christie attempt something different in the Poirot series was in The Big Four That was not something I enjoyed but relieved to say I actually enjoyed this attempt.In this the murderer sends letters to Poirot himself issuing a challenge Reminded me of the infamous Zodiac Killer.The whole cit [...]



  • There is nothing so terrible as to live in an atmosphere of suspicion to see eyes watching you and the love in them changing to fear nothing so terrible as to suspect those near and dear to you It is poisonous a miasma Hercule Poirot gets a few surprises his old friend Hastings has come for an extended stay and visit, and a serial killer has decided to target him with teasing notes before he strikes.As always, clever The point of this one was the journey and not the destination culprit I didn t [...]


  • Before I begin my review, let me start off my saying I am a HUGE fan of Agatha Christie Throughout the years I have always used her novels as go to books if I am in a literary dry spell and yearn to read something I am guarentee to enjoy My girl Aggie usually hits the spot However, sadly, I must say that The A.B.C Murders is thus far my least favourite of all her books The following may contain spoilers Poirot, everyone s favourite detective, receives a mysterious letter warning him of a crime t [...]

  • Words, madmoiselle, are only the outer clothing of ideas Agatha Christie isn t called the Queen of Crime for nothing, you know, and this book was a prime example of her proficiency Generally, her books have an array of suspects, and we readers have to guess who the culprit is before the ending arrives, but this book was quite different How, might you ask You see, this time Christie handed us the murderer view spoiler or so we thought hide spoiler on a silver platter Most of the mystery was about [...]

  • Let us see, Mr Clever Poirot, just how clever you can be This is the 13th novel in the Hercule Poirot series and, I believe, is Agatha Christie at her prime Some of the best Hercule Poirot stories IMHO are those in which Poirot s friend Captain Arthur Hastings appears and acts as narrator One of the unusual aspects of this story is that it is told in both the first and third person narrative And the third person narrative is reconstructed by the first person Hastings The story opens with Hasting [...]


  • Hercule Poirot receives a letter which warns about a murder to take place in a named town on a set date and signed only as ABC The police think it a hoax and pay little mind to it until a woman is murdered in that town on that same date At the crime site, an A.B.C Railroad Guide is left behind The crime attracts very little attention until a second letter arrives for Poirot, a second crime is committed and the railroad guide is left behind once again This serial killer is working their way throu [...]



  • 3,5 3,75 I CAN T DECIDE STARS.I m not going to write a big review here, so don t be afraid of spoilers.I just wanted to say that this book is really good and the whole idea of The A.B.C Murders was pretty intriguing.But the ending was disappointing for me personally.I was waiting for something like this As usual, when it comes to detective stories But in the end I was like Yeah And all this time it was BLABLABLA That s good Right Nice move, Agatha Despite the fact, that I pretty much saw that co [...]


  • I truly love Hercule Poirot mysteries This one was SO very good I am not sure I can do a review without giving a ton away, so I will just say it was awesome and I was totally surprised and I cannot wait to read another M Poirot mystery I highly recommend this to any mystery lover.


  • Who are you You don t belong to the police I am better than the police, said Poirot He said it without conscious arrogance It was, to him, a simple statement of fact.Poirot 13 is one I had read many years ago, but am re reading anyway, since I am not reading them all in order.In this one Christie creates an idea followed by hundreds of others in different ways Having a killer use the alphabet to associate with his killings Mrs Ascher in Andover, then Betty Barnhard in Bexhill, and so on There s [...]



  • A far fetched plot, but interesting nonetheless about a serial killer who chooses his victims in alphabetical order hence the title However, there is much hidden beneath the apparent alphabetical obsession Readers from Kerala will immediately recall a popular movie from 3 4 years ago, which was plagiarised in part from this novel.

  • A great narration of a true classicWhen Captain Hastings comes back on a trip to London from his new home in the Argentine, he hastens round to visit his old friend, Hercule Poirot After they ve done a bit of catching up, Poirot shows Hastings a bizarre letter he has received, warning that a crime will be committed on a certain date in Andover When the day comes, so does news of a murder Alice Ascher, the owner of a small newsagents, has been found dead, with a copy of the ABC railway guide lyin [...]



  • I really liked the plot in this story it s the main feature of The ABC Murders and the trick is to write a review without spoilers Here goes.As the title suggests, a series of murders begins to take shape indeed serial killings in today s parlance The challenge heaped upon Poirot is to pre empt the killer, who writes to him in advance of the next atrocity An ABC Railway Guide is left with each victim.First there is Alice Ascher in Andover Next Betty Barnard in Bexhill You get the idea All Poirot [...]
