Miss Marple's final cases is a really interesting book. I finished reading it in a short period of time as I was flipping pages without getting bored. All the seven short stories are interesting but I was surprised because there was a horror story which is not Agatha Christie's style but it was worth reading. I would recommend this book to all people of different ages who like mystery.

أهمية هذا الكتاب تكمن في المقدمة التي تضمنته عن أغاثا وأعماله وشخصية الآنسة ماربل
يضم الكتاب 6 قصص قصيرة: أربع منها عن قضايا تقوم بحلها الآنسة ماربل، واثنان لا وجود لشخصية الآنسة ماربل فيهما، بل لا يمكن تصنيفهما تحت صنف الروايات أو القصص البوليسية، إذ هما أقرب للأدب الغرائبي
وأرى أن أغاثا قد وفقت في هاتين القصتين، ولا أدري إن كان لها قصص أخرى قريبة من هذا النوع

Some wonderful short stories featuring Miss Marple, although the latter two don't feature her at all. The Dressmaker's Doll was really creepy! Great read.
The Miss Marple stories are OK, although I really prefer the full length novels. What spoils the book for me are the two final stories, sans Miss Marple. I don't at all care for this sort of supernatural horror stuff that doesn't make sense in the first place, let alone in this collection.

More like “This reviewer’s final decision to never read Agatha Christie again”. At the end of her life, Agatha Christie agreed to publish the remaining Miss Marple short stories which hadn’t yet been put into book format.

There’s a reason they hadn’t yet been put into book format. These are indicative of Christie at her short story laziest, and Miss Marple – a character who is often “magically” intuitive in her understanding – here is just a plot device to reveal answers no one could ever have kn

Ideal bed time reading - the stories are written well enough to draw you in, but are short and formulaic enough to not keep you up all night guessing what happened next.

Some of the stories are more obvious than others. Unlike in the The Thirteen Problems, there is no particular thread to collection - and no story line within the collection to reveal more about Miss Marple (or why the collection is titled Final Cases). For that, 3 stars, not more.

I guess, if Christie had been able alive to have

Agatha Christie at her best and it's nice to have some short stories that you can read quickly in between doing other things.

As a great fan of the TV series of Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple, it is only surprising I hadn't started reading Agatha Christie's books earlier. Oddly enough, this is the first book I've just started with to make me read again (hopefully : a lot, like I used to).
This book is really cool, it's small, easy and quick to read! Christie's style is smooth and, although the characters jump to the right conclusions a little too easily for my taste (especially in story number 1, "Sanctuary"), I enjoye

This is a fantastic collection of Miss Marple tales! I loved them!

I downloaded this set of six Miss Marple stories in audiobook for my mom, so it would give her something to occupy her time while recuperating; she had been very ill in hospital at the time. I decided to listen to it myself once she had recovered, because I love Agatha Christie's mystery books too.

This audiobook was narrated by one of the best actresses (I feel) to have portrayed Miss Marple, Dame Joan Hickson. Her narration of si

Some of these stories most Miss Marple fans will be familiar with, though two stories aren't even Miss Marple stories. They were, of course, all entertaining, but they also showed that Agatha Christie's writing subjects extend past her most popular characters. She especially shows a darker, supernatural side in many of her stories, which makes me wonder if she were writing today, with today's standards, how her stories might be different. We know Christie started writing to earn a living, so she ...more

'Ini bisa jadi merupakan sebuah kumpulan kisah untuk hiburan ringan buat penggemar Agatha Christie, khususnya penggemar Miss Marple; Tidak semuanya tentang detektif, dua di antaranya bahkan berisi metafora yang akan kuanggap sebagai romannya Agatha Christie, terutama kisah paling akhir'
I enjoyed this a lot, especially as I seem to find that I prefer the short story versions of the Miss Marple stories, rather than the full novel mysteries. Out of this collection of nine stories, I'd say that five of them are definitely worth reading, whilst the other four are of varying natures. My one disappointment was that two of the stories in the middle, The Dressmaker's Doll and In a Glass Darkly, were not Miss Marple stories at all and came across more as morality tales than anything els ...more

Coletânea final de contos de Miss Marple, que estranhamente inclui dois que não contém a velhinha. Santuário e A Boneca da Modista são as mais interessantes dentre as inéditas.

A verdade é que deveriam lançar três livrões de contos da Dama do Crime: um com todos de Poirot (imenso), outro com todos de Marple e um terceiro com os restantes (deixo à parte os já existentes de Tommy & Tuppence, afinal todos já estão em um único livro e talvez do Sr. Quin - embora haja algum fora da coletânea, pode

Buku pertama di 2016, meskipun sebenarnya saya memulai membacanya di 2015 namun tersela oleh buku-buku lain. Ini buku pertama pula dari Agatha Christie yang saya baca. Meskipun nama pengarang besar ini telah saya kenal sejak duduk di bangku sekolah dasar, namun baru berkesempatan ini untuk membaca. Ternyata ini buku kumpulan cerita (saya pikir semua kasusnya dibuat novel). Ada 8 cerita yang tidak kesemuanya berisi penyelesaian kasus. Dua cerita terakhir menurut saya bukan cerpen semacam itu.

Presented in this collection are: the man found dying in the church sanctuary; the puzzle of Uncle Henry's hidden legacy; the question of the murder with the tape-measure; the curious conduct of the caretaker; the case of Miss Skinner's maid and the baffling mystery of the stabbing of Mrs Rhodes.
My take........

Buku ini cenderung lebih tipis dibanding dengan buku Agatha yang pernah aku baca lainnya. Serupa dengan buku Tiga Belas Kasus, di buku ini juga menceritakan tantang mini kasus yang dipecahkan oleh Miss Marple. Hanya saja kasus yang diceritakan tidaklah detail dan cenderung amat singkat. Meskipun begitu, tidak juga bisa dipungkiri bahwa ketajaman insting dan pikiran Miss Marple tetap terlihat. Begitu mudahnya bagi Miss Marple dalam menganalisis kasus meski dengan petunjuk yang minim.

I love Miss Marple. I love seeing her expert, honed, people observation skills at work. This book of short cases is a pleasure to read. Over the years, I have internalized some of her tricks - and even drawn on them in my life! But some of the solutions still surprise me!

As an extension, what does such a work say about the writer, Ms. Christie, herself? Fascinating.

Best #5, if accept sticky candy would be picked up after mirror and leave decent fingerprints. Maybe #3 - best pins not cheapest. Published posthumously for good reason. Supernatural is bunkum horror. #6 is Jane Marple at worst widdery. UK has 8 cases to US 9.

Regressing to my childhood, with Aunt Agatha...These are very minor distractions - some magazine Marples to keep us mildly amused on the train journey, or whatever. As such they're quite successful, but don't except any great whdunnits.

Miss Marple ajunge la concluzia corectă cu o viteză incredibilă - incredibilă la propriu, vreau să zic, pentru că prea le descurcă pe toate repede și sigur.

Dar dincolo de viteza ei uimitoare de a deduce adevărul din situații care ar putea să reflecte și altceva, colecția de povestiri scurte e simpatică și provocarea interesantă e să încerci să-ți dai seama ce indicii îți dă Miss Marple de-a lungul poveștii.

O singură ciudățenie: chiar dacă volumul se numește „Ultimele cazuri ale lui Miss Marple”,

Ini adalah kumpulan cerita pendek karangan Agatha Christie yang enak dibaca. Ceritanya pas, tidak banyak dibumbui sampingan di sana-sini. Buat yang belum pernah baca novel detektif, saya sarankan baca ini dulu karena isinya ringan. Saat yang paling menyenangkan adalah ketika momen "aha!" muncul ketika tengah membaca. Walaupun sebagian terkaan saya salah (Agatha Christie memang jago membuat twist), asyik rasanya membaca penyelesaian tiap kasus pendek.

This was an average book. Some of the cases were really interesting while others weren't. My favourite was 'Miss Marple Tells A Story'. The story flow was great and the writing was good.

There are flashes of the greatness of Miss Marple, but too often this collection feels like an unenthusiastic after thought, and proves to me that Miss Marple tales aren't effective as short stories. They need room to breathe as novels, slowly unfurling their characters and settings at a luxurious pace. There are also a couple of stories that seem more "Twilight Zone" than Agatha Christie, and a story where a bed-ridden Miss Marple solves a case written as a story. It may have pre-empted a later ...more

Smaller Miss Marple's stories. Yet so short they nothing is given for the reader to make their own assessment or provoke a thought process. It's mostly he says, she says with a neatly tied up ending in the end. The last three however are an exception. 'The Dressmaker's Doll' is as chilling as it can be and sets the mood fittingly for "In a Glass Darkly". Both are non Miss Marple mysteries and are supernatural in nature. 'Greeshaw's Folly' can be termed as a whodunnit that truly deserves to be so ...more

There are 6 stories inside. Some of it had been published earlier in another Miss Marple's books. Some were new ones, never before published. I never like 'the Dressmaker's Doll' because no matter how creepy some said of it, I found it boring. No murder, no mystery, just a stupid doll in dressmaker's shop. One of the story, was indeed Miss Marple's final case. Read it, for the sake of reading all Agatha's books and also, for the sake of crossing out all Miss Marple's books. Either way, the book ...more
