I've read Nemesis and The Mirror Crack'd. I enjoyed both because I love Miss Marple. However, Nemesis for me was the darker of the two, it being the last mystery that Christie wrote while alive (she had one saved for after her death). It involved two sisters and their secrets.
The Mirror Crack'd is a lot of fun and about Hollywood. You'll enjoy both!
Contains: The Mirror Crack'd, A Caribbean Mystery, Nemesis, What Mrs. McGillicuddy Saw! , The Body in the Library
Not as good as the Poirot books. They are well written books and I would have given another 1/2 star if I could, but I just couldn't give 4 stars. I found it kind of annoying that the best and brightest of Scotland Yard were consistently made to look like blind idiots by an old lady armed with nothing more than a knack for recognizing personality types. I'm maybe just getting wise to the tricks but I found the Marple novels more predictable than the Poirot series.
A nice collection, but the order makes no sense at all.
I just finished the 4th book in this collection: "What Mrs. McGillicuddy Saw!" I really enjoyed it and there were tons of characters and details for me to sort out. I never would have guessed the actual person. I am currently reading the last book in this treasury. I love Miss Marple mysteries. However this particular version of these books by this publisher is not edited very well. There are many typos and wrong words In the middle of sentences. The books themselves are great stories though!!!
Again - I've read every mystery I could get my hands on from Agatha Christie so I'll just give a general review. Her books are timeless and amazing. I even own a few - since I have the happy problem of never remembering "whodunit" it's new every time!

This is a very good anthology, although the order of the books is confusing. They are not in chronological order nor published order and they are not five books in the Miss Marple series in a row, they jump around. However, they are all good novels.
I really liked The Mirror Cracked, A Caribbean Mystery, and Nemesis. the other two stories were okay, but not as interesting. I was disappointed by the character development in What Mrs. Mcgillicuddy Saw. It was weak.
Christie deserves her fame. That's how you tightly structure a novel without seeming to. And I just like the idea of this old lady connecting all the dots while the young folks run around in an exitless maze.
This is specifically for What Mrs. McGillicuddy Saw!, because it's only in collections. So far, I liked it best of these five Miss Marple novels, but I still have one left!
This was definitely fun. The mysteries were not predictable and I found the character of Miss. Marple to be an enjoyable one. I would read the others in the series.
Interesting how dated some of the stories are. Didn't mean I didn't enjoy them, just that slang, in particular, was noticeable because of its outdatedness.
The queen of the who done it. I really like the Miss Marple series.
mysteries and thriller. Also, the plot is unpredictable.

Poorly proofed but good choices for collection.
