C - Agatha Christie

Posted by Claudia Moser on 10:00 AM in ,

One lady which needs no introduction, my favourite all time writer who makes my reading moments so full and thrilling. Dame Agatha Christie.

In her memoir she wrote: “An archaeologist is the best husband a woman can have. The older she gets the more interested he is in her.” which I find so amusing and true. Wise woman!
“It is a curious thought, but it is only when you see people looking ridiculous that you realize just how much you love them.”
“Any woman can fool a man if she wants to and if he's in love with her.”
“Good advice is always certain to be ignored, but that's no reason not to give it”
 “One doesn't recognize the really important moments in one's life until it's too late.”
And now the main question: are you a Poirot person or a Miss Marple person? I must confess: Poirot :)

Agatha Christie certainly needs no introduction. Love her books... and the quotes you used!

Love Agatha Christie and I am a Poirot fan. :)
Laura @ The Sweet Simple Things

The only Christie novel I've ever read is "Witness for the Prosecution." It was so good.

Christie is one of those authors I always wanted to read more of but never got around to it. You've inspired me to pick something up. What would you recommend?

I have to admit something. I have a Poirot book on my shelf. It's been there for months, but I haven't opened it yet.

Really should change that soon.

@Jenn- she is one special woman, I agree!

@Laura - good choice :)
@Karen - smart woman, right?
@Ameron - Murder at Styles would be a nice start, the first with Poirot as a detective
@Misha - just start! Which book is it?

Definitely Poirot for me - and Death on the Nile

@Paula - a good book and great movies too!

#3 daughter loves Agatha Christie, which is a testament to the staying power of her writing. Love that she created a mystery around herself too - The Lady Vanishes indeed *grin* Excellent choice, Claudia.

I have to confess to never having read Christie, not being a mystery fan, but of course I know of Miss Marple and Poirot. Those are terrific quotes. Loving your A-Z, Claudia!

If only I could write like her.


I am embaressed to say this, I have not read any of her books. I must read one soon.

Love AgathA Christie with her Miss Marple and Poirot. She was born o my about 45 minutes away from where I live. I have visited her holiday home, Greenways, which was lovely!

@Gil - she will always be special to me, I read her works in 5 languages, but still English is special
@Elaine - her memoirs are great and also her plays, do try! You will enjoy it for sure
@Joyce - you have your own style and that is what counts!
@Luan- there is always a beginning
@Linda :) me too
@Diane - I have one more good reason to visit, may I? :)

I never quite got into the writing of Agatha Christie, but maybe will take a second look.

@Kathy - maybe you will enjoy it now, try!

She does have some words of wisdom! I always enjoyed her books when I would actually sit down to read theme. Thanks for sharing!

@Jennee - happy you enjoy her works!

Thank you for your comments, I appreciate them all!


"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
