    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. What a lot of enemies you must make, Linnet Enemies Linnet looked surprised.Joanna nodded and helped herself to a cigarette Enemies, my sweet You re so devastatingly efficient And you re so frightfully good at doing the right thing Linnet laughed Why, I haven t got an enemy in the world Linnet Doyle is on her honeymoon in Egypt with the husband she recently stole from one of her best friends Not only is Linnet filthy rich, but also gorgeous, sophisticated, and charming Some might say a nearly pe [...]


    2. It is 1937 and Cairo is still considered a jewel of a city to rival Paris The rich and famous flock there to enjoy her night life and cruise the Nile to see the pyramids Such is the backdrop for Dame Agatha Christie s Death on the Nile starring Hercule Poirot As in many of Poirot s cases, this mystery features a young heiress, multiple motives for murder, and criminals traveling under assumed names All these facets add up to a fun, page turning whodunit Upon turning twenty one, Linnet Ridgeway s [...]


    3. Book Review4 out of 5 stars for Death on the Nile, a Hercule Poirot mystery published in 1937 by Agatha Christie This is one of Christie s better mysteries, not because of the complexity in the mystery but due to the characters she creates No one is who they appear to be on this ship, and they are all trapped together It s nearly 100 years ago, so how could anyone get on or off the boat without the Captain or the rest of the staff in the know No, I m not giving away a spoiler Poirot is on vacati [...]


    4. Hopefully I am not committing any heretical thoughtcrime here, but am I the only one who thinks Hercule Poirot comes across as a bit of a doucheapotamus Between the accent, the arrogance and the jabbing his butt into everyone s business, he reminded of a cross between nosey neighbor Gladys Kravitz and everyone s favorite rapist, Pepe Le Pew Now before you get the cheese grater and the lemon juice out for me, let me say that this is my first Agatha Christie novel and my first experience with Mons [...]


    5. A friend told me who the murderer was, so I was not surprized when the killer was discovered.I never talked to this friend again


    6. This is only the second time that I read Death on the Nile I remember the sublime subterfuge of the guilty party, but thought there were only two deaths in the book In fact there are five deaths and the book has a quite hectic pace.Hercule Poirot refers to previous cases once or twice In Murder of the Orient Express he absolved the guilty completely In Death on the Nile, he regrets bringing the murderer to justice, but carries out this task still.The boat on the Nile houses many other characters [...]


    7. Choose Your Own Adventure You are a poor sap who loves an English rose, a jewel of society, a gateway to fortune and romance Together you travel the exotic Nile, surrounded by jealousy and greed and yearned for vengeance, each of your fellow passengers a bizarre and unsettling caricature, each one morbidly following your every move Murder strikes not once, not twice, but thrice The situation becomes quite unbearable, and made worse by the attentions of a notorious Belgian muckraker How do you ge [...]


    8. Linnet Ridgeway was an extremely wealthy young woman who had everything she had ever wanted everything everyone else would have liked but she didn t have love So when she married Simon, who had been engaged to one of Linnet s closest friends, there was a good deal of animosity While on their honeymoon, they were on the S.S Karnak, slowly cruising up the Nile River stopping to view the pyramids and other exotic tourist destinations They were accompanied by a varied group of people and among them [...]


    9. This is a really good one from Christie It has all the ingredients of a great story I wish they had done this plot as a film instead of the too many times filmed Murder on the Orient Express.


    10. Death on the Nile has to be one of my favourite books by Agatha Christie I ve read most of her books and I never get tiered of re reading them There s something specially dark about this book and I happen to like it.As usual the characters are multi dimensional and quite weird and scandalous lol EVERYONE has a motive and an opportunity, anyone could ve done it but I can never guess the right person with Agatha Very enjoyable and highly recommended.



    11. Aside from a few awkward racist sayings this book is as fresh and topical today as it was when it was written in 1937 I am sure I read this in the past but its plot had faded away probably replaced in my mind shanty by the theme song to the New Zoo Review which for some reason I can t get out of my head.At any rate this book begins as many of Ms Christie s do, setting the stage by introducing us the the victims and suspects We have a ridiculously rich young American girl living in her newly acqu [...]



    12. I can see why people don t appreciate the Nile much equally to other famous Christie s novels The Oriental Express or And Then There We re None, still I love the way the story unfold itself The crime is also humanly touching, practical and realistic There s also the elements such as atmosphere, the journey to the Nile, and old fashioned who dun it crime scene in the transitional place boat, and reminding of the old day s the train express which can be variously interpreted, for such, the place o [...]


    13. Re read 01.09.2017 From 3 to 4 stars.The first book I read from Christie was The Big Four 1927 , but starting from that was a huge mistake, because it s vastly different from the usual Poirots Luckily, Death on the Nile was next in line, and it confirmed once and for all that my time wouldn t be misspent reading Christie, just like it wasn t misspent watching the television adaptations for a long time before I moved on to her books.The plot of Death on the Nile is the only one I can remember viv [...]


    14. A typical Poirot mystery.Rich heiress, impoverished friend, a couple of suitors, acquaintances with straightened circumstances.Heiress snatches her impoverished friend s fiance and they are off on a honeymoon cruise over the Nile The outraged jilted lady friend, Poirot, a couple old ladies, a couple of young ladies, a few mysterious men are put together in the cruise What follows is a medley of intrigue, quarrel, theft, murder and mayhem Was an enjoyable read.

    16. That is why most great love stories are tragedies Agatha Christie, Death on the NileDeath on the Nile is one of Christie s most popular mysteries, also made into a popular movie with Peter Ustinov as the amusingly arrogant egg head Belgian Poirot, who apparently never gets to take a real vaca, meeting murder in every boat and train on which he travels This one is also one of Christie s favorites, as she writes in an introduction to my edition And the writing is a bit polished and exuberant than [...]


    17. Many years since I ve read an Agatha Christie mystery, you tend to forget what a great writer she was This vintage mystery features the wonderful Hercule Poirot Loved the exotic location, most of the action takes place on board a boat travelling down the Nile The mystery component of the novel kept you guessing right up to the end which is always a big plus Well drawn characters and an engaging plot, time and money well spent.


    18. This is my second most favourite Agatha Christie story among all of her stories.Linnet Doyle is youthful, excellent, and rich She s the young lady who has everything including the man her closest companion adores Linnet and her new spouse take a voyage on the Nile, where they meet the splendid investigator Hercule Poirot A man doesn t wasnt to feel that a woman cares for him than he cares for her He doesn t want to feel owned, body and soul It s that damned possessive attitude This man is mine [...]


    19. I have not read all of that many HP stories, but I think this is my favorite mystery so far I am looking forward to of them Although he is retired and taking a vacation cruise on the Nile, he still ends up in charge of a murder and mystery than he could shake a stick at Was it only a matter of time A great cast of nice and not so nice characters, typical of Agatha Christie The timing of events and how they played out wonderful


    20. Agatha Christie had a romantic streak, which you can see in most of her books, where an unlikely couple is brought together either by the interference of Poirot or Miss Marple This happened several times in this book but as I learned during this re read, there s nothing she loves than to subvert her own tendencies The story was very sad, not for the victim, whose personality made it likely somebody was going to kill her at some point or another, but for the murderer.Dame Christie continues her [...]


    21. The famous detective Hercule Poirot was expecting a relaxing holiday on a steamer heading up the Nile Some agitation among a few of the passengers has him a little on edge Soon a terrible crime will turn Poirot s exotic Egyptian vacation into an investigation.The book was cleverly written with interesting characters There were several people on the cruise that had something to hide, or a motive to murder, so it kept me guessing until the end.


    22. I don t know I really don t The mystery and its solution is exciting, daring and yet, I did not really care all that much Sometimes I even got bored.It s a re read, admittedly, and I remembered the end, but this usually does not bother me with my favourite AC books I originally gave this 3 stars and I am sticking to it.


    23. Worum geht s Eigentlich m chte Meisterdetektiv Hercule Poirot die Kreuzfahrt auf dem Nil dazu nutzen, sich zu entspannen und die zahlreichen Sehensw rdigkeiten zu bestaunen doch seine Pl ne werden schnell durchkreuzt Mit an Bord sind unter anderem die sch ne und steinreiche Erbin Linnet Rigdeway und ihr Verlobter Simon Deren Hochzeitsreise verl uft bisher alles andere als heiter Miss de Bellefort, Linnets ehemals beste Freundin, der sie Simon ausgespannt hat, folgt dem Paar hartn ckig berall hin [...]


    24. I enjoyed this book I don t think I read enough Agatha Christie They are always a pleasant surprise I enjoy Hercule Poirot and his thought processes Even though I had this one figured out early on, I found that I enjoyed the characters the most They were well drawn and I was definitely enchanted.


    25. Death on the Nile is a intriguing Poirot mystery, that involves a murder and ship full of people who may easily have had a motive for the deed So, though I d expected a thrilling setting for the murder like the African background in Man in the Brown Suit instead the majority of the book takes place on the boat This is definitely traditional murder mystery style, where it consists of QA with nearly every passenger on the ship But, Christie manages to add in a lot of characterization along the wa [...]


    26. For me, Agatha Cristie is the most important author of thriller and crime novels I love getting lost in her atmosphere full of mystery and sophistication in which each of the characters can be a hero or a murderer Death on the Nile is undoubtedly one of his best known novels and its reputation is well deserved I encourage all readers of detective fiction and suspense to read this jewel of literature and the magic of Agatha Christie s words.Spanish version Para mi Agatha Cristie es el genio de la [...]
