I don't always know where I get my ideas about authors. I had the feeling that Agatha Christie was a boring sensationalist knockoff of Conan Doyle: I imagine it had something to do with her picture, which is precisely not what you want your mystery author to look like, and the names of her heroes, which sounded to me to be either an attempt at being too comic or at being too serious.

Read this after someone mentioned on Bookreporter.com blog that they always read this title around Christmas. I loved Dame Agatha when I was younger and read mostly the mysteries solved by Inspector Hercule Poirot. Enjoyed this book as it featured Miss Jane Marple an entirely different detective solving a murder happening around Christmas. It read very quickly and is a fun read during the holidays for a shorter attention span (which I now have until Decmber 26th). ost of a miserable family gets ...more
