Summary

What does the name "Agatha Christie" mean? To many people, it means a book about a murder mystery - a "whodunnit". "I'm reading an Agatha Christie," people say. "I'm not sure who the murderer is. I think it's…." But they are usually wrong, because it is not easy to guess the murderer's name before the end of the book. But who was Agatha Christie? What was she like? Was her life quiet and unexciting, or was it full of interest and adventure?Was there a mystery in her life, too?

Simply Written, but Interesting

I am a big fan of Agatha Christie, so didn't really know what to expect from this title. However, it covered a lot of Agatha's early life, including her unsuccessful early writing projects (e.g. Snow on the Desert). It would have been nice if more of her works had been discussed - the focus was a little too much on her private life for my liking, but I enjoyed it.
