    About "Agatha Christie"

    1. Agatha Christie

      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

    1. Sunt o mul ime de lucruri pe care nu le n elegem, care nu pot fi explicate n mod normal Mai avem nc o groaz de descoperit i cred c e bine s avem o minte receptiv , deschis numai c oamenii sunt at t de nerecunosc tori c nu i mai anun dac l au luat apartamentul , i atunci ei continu s l recomande, iar lumea de enerveaz s fie trimis ntr un loc care fusese, poate, nchiriat de mult.

    2. Buscaba un libro corto para poder leer r pido y poder completar mi Challenge Pero luego de mi horror leyendo Historias Fant sticas haber continuado con otro libro de cuentos cortos no fue la mejor idea Definitivamente, los cuentos cortos no son lo mio a pesar de que las historias de este libro me gustaron un poco m s aunque yo esperaba m s protagonismo de Poirot y Miss Marple.Pero lo pude leer en un d a, algo es algo.

    3. Yes Well It had to happen Even the great ones have bad eggs And this collection of stories, they did not hold up to the normal standard of Agatha 2 3 of the stories were good the rest were just plain boring.

    4. Interesting collection of stories Some are better than the others Not the usual garden variety whodunit plots.ough I am a sucker for those Most of the stories are psychological thrillers and or deal with the supernatural, one way or the other I suppose after watching TV shows like the X Files and Supernatural, the stories were pretty tame However, for the time when they were written, I thought the plots were quite impressive in how dark they were One thing though that is starting to annoy me is [...]

    5. 4,5 Fue toda una sorpresa este libro Los primeros cap tulos son relatos t picos de la autora 3 de Poirot y 1 de Miss Marple Pero el resto, es decir, 8 relatos eran de tem tica esot rica que no me esperaba dado el estilo de la autora El pr ximo domingo rese a en el canal Valentina s Books

    6. Some of the stories were very atmospheric and intriguing, but there were some I just couldn t care about that ended flatly, without allowing the reader to get invested Still, there were some gems here that I loved, such as The Call of Wings and The Witness for the Prosecution It was nice to read something of Christie that was so different from her usual detective novels and I daresay she could have written a great gothic novel Has she ever The Hound of Death 1 5The Red Signal 2 5The Fourth Man 3 [...]

    7. Este um livro que cont m doze contos completamente diferentes daquilo a que a Agatha Christie conhecida por escrever, policiais Fiquei bastante surpreendida quando li a pequena sinopse do livro, mas fiquei ainda mais parva quando li o primeiro conto e percebi qual o verdadeiro teor da colect nea Os contos t m uma mistura de sobrenatural com thriller psicol gico, num ambiente g tico e sombrio, algumas de terror puro Alguns deles t m presente a componente policial, mas a meu ver n o a que se desta [...]

    8. I remember being terrified of this collection of short stories when I first read it aged 12 They aren t just clever mystery stories, many of them are genuinely creepy and shocking and absolutely brilliant My favourite story from the collection, The Witness for the Prosecution, is also a play currently running in London I ve been obsessed with it for years, and it never disappoints 12 Please note this review is meant as a recommendation only Please do not use it in any marketing material, online [...]

    9. After having dealt with the classic doggie of Baskervilles, I figured out I might continue with the theme for a bit longer I also thought it would be nice to read a real book for a change instead of an ebook, that is.The Hound of Death is a collection of 12 short stories that despite their differing themes and genres form a nice, clean ensemble The stories consist of classic ghost stories, ghost stories or mysteries with a touch of Scooby Doo you know, in which there is a criminal of some kind b [...]

    10. I thoroughly enjoyed several of these stories, particularly The Red Signal and Witness for the Prosecution Both of them were of the typical Christie murder mystery with a twist than many of the other stories in the collection I liked the paranormal twist to the stories though personally I preferred the ones where it was rationally explained at the conclusion Mysteries that aren t really solved but are left to the unexplained aren t a favorite of mine.

    11. No conoc a las historias de g nero sobrenatural de Agatha Christie Una parte importante de esta antolog a de relatos son de este tipo y me han sorprendido para bien Las ideas de partida son muy interesantes y bastante inquietantes.

    12. Esta fue una relectura, basicamente porque no me apetecia leer nada nuevo y porque no recordaba el final del libro Como siempre me encanta volver a Agatha y descubrir sus historia.

    13. I just submitted a short story to a competition so I decided to read a collection of short crime stories, to see how the Queen of Crime did it Unfortunately, this edition is mysteriously devoid of any hint that it is, in fact, a collection of sub par M.R Jamesesque horror stories, and not crime stories at all.The solutions here are secondary to the melodramatic otherworldly causes Even where the causes are very worldly, the sense of dull dread that hangs over them is clearly the intention, rathe [...]

    14. Este libro fue publicado en espa ol combnando historias cortas de varios libros en ingl s De las 12 historias que contiene, hay cuatro de Poirot La mejor es Poirot investiga The veiled lady , que ya hab a le do en Poirot investiga Tampoco est mal Doble pista , donde la condesa Vera Rossakoff aparece por primera vez Hay tambi n una historia de Miss Marple Santuario , que no est mal Las otras ocho son de fantasmas y situaciones raras o sobrenaturales Casi ninguna me ha gustado Algunas no tienen pi [...]

    15. The Hound of Death is yet again a short story by Agatha Christie It is nice but some readers will expect a lot considering the level of her other novels It becomes difficult to add mystery, a plot which keeps you guessing the big reveal all in a short story I personally liked it is a good way to spend your Sunday evening

    16. Well this was a bit of a change from a normal Agatha Christie book I really enjoyed this one, as it dealt very much so on using the occult in each of the short stories If you enjoy a touch of the bizarre or a bit of occult mystery then you may enjoy this book.

    17. I had a great time with this book Not only are the stories easy to read, they also have this atmosphere of mystery and fright that is not easy to create This isn t what one would generally expect when picking up an Agatha Christie book, no doubt There isn t a perfectly reasonable explanation to everything as it usually is, but it leaves just enough room to imaginative people such as myself, and explains everything that absolutely needs to be explained view spoiler That all said, the stories are [...]

    18. J anteriormente tinha lido um livro de Agatha Christie composto por v rios contos As Investiga es de Poirot e lembro me que, apesar de ter gostado, na altura n o fiquei muito impressionada Este O C o da Morte uma compila o de v rios contos que fogem tem tica e ao estilo normal da autora, porque a maioria dos contos n o policiail nem ao estilo whodunnit S o antes contos com um forte pendor paranormal, v rios deles ao jeito de thriller psicol gico.O conto mais famoso dos doze Testemunha de Acusa o [...]
