I adore Agatha Christie. I was into crime/detective novels since a very early age and she was pretty much the reason why i wanted to become an author when i was younger. If i was ever to write a novel, Agatha's influence would be very clear in it.

Her stories are amazing, the way she writes and the way she portrays the characters and the plots in every single book of hers are amazing and unique. To me she is the best of her kind. I simply can't be bored of her books.

Anyone here a fan of hers?

YYYAAAAYY <3 Ugh those are amazing stories indeed. I can't pick a favorite one. I think it should be Death on the Nile, The man in the brown suite and Endless night. Death on the nile is actually one of my fave movies ever.

So who do you like the most? Miss Marple, Poirot, or stories without detectives? Just the protagonists?

Poirot all they way, I just think he's a weird interesting detective
His stories are awesome .. I can't remember titles right now

But Agatha make me love every story no matter what, every story have that interesting twist to it

So do you figure out whose the murderer? I get it sometimes but mostly not hahaha

I have Murder on the Orient Express but I haven't read it yet. I haven't read any Agatha Christie books. I have watched most of the BBC adaptions of Agatha Christie novels such as Miss Marple and Poirot. I like Miss Marple better. Have you guys seen the Doctor Who episode called the Wasp and the Unicorn? The Doctor and Donna meet Agatha Christie.

^Haven't watched Dr Who haha but that episode looks interesting ^.^ The film adaptations were great i think. Get to read the books! You'll get lost in them :3

Poirot all they way, I just think he's a weird interesting detective

But Agatha make me love every story no matter what, every story have that interesting twist to it

I vote for Poirot too :3 His whole attitude is great haha. Awhh dude i'm always wrong! I mean even if i guess the murderer in the beginning, through the process she makes me exclude that person and the end it's them and i'm like "NOOOOWAY" xD
She always keeps you interested until the very end!

I aslso read a lot of her books (more than 50 of them).
Hercule Poirot is so intelligent, I can only admire that character. He is funny in her own way, and the cleverness of the plots are amazing. I like the author very much, however something's missing to me : love stories ! Haha


I recomend you also to read Patricia Wentworth's books. Her main detective is Miss Silver who is very touching, and I find all of her books are good stories (and you have romantic plots in it hehe).

Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.

haha yeah it's mystery above all. However there is romance/love in most of them. In some the inspector falls in love with the woman who is considered to be guilty and you just can't help it but wishing that she is not and that those two should end up together. Or it's love that causes the murder or love gets in the way in general. But yeah love-love stories are not written by Agatha :P

Awh i've heard of many people comparing Miss Silver with Miss Marple but have never read any of her books. I should haha.

I finally did read Murder on the Orient Express and I did enjoy it. However, I already knew the ending because I watched some BBC adaption of the book. I think I will continue to read Agatha Christie books but I know the endings to most of them because watching Miss Marple and Poirot. So it's a bummer that I can't guess who the murderer is but it is still enjoyable nonetheless.

I finished Peril at End House today. Amazing story, very well structured and just so much fun to read. The characters are brilliant and the ending is surprising and just awesome :D
