Dame Agatha Christie wrote more than eighty books, including scores of detective novels (many featuring her famous Belgian Hercule Poirot or the diminuitive, gossipy spinster Miss Jane Marple), as well as a smattering of short stories, plays, poetry and romance novels under her nom-de-plume Mary Westmacott. As a child, I read nearly all her works, and subsequently have an adoration of Christie which probably far exceeds logic and reason.
In 2011, I reviewed the vast bulk of English-language adaptations, as well as capsule reviews of each of her novels and short story collections. For 2012, I’ll probably just post reviews of new adaptations – notably the upcoming seasons of Poirot and Marple. However, one day I’d love to critically analyse each of the Dame’s novels and stories. If you have any other thoughts or comments, I’d love to hear from you!
