Agatha Christie adalah nama yang paling sering gue sebut jika hunting buku waktu masih sekolah. Ketika pertama kali baca novelnya ‘menuju titik nol’,langsung ketagihan baca novel-novel lainnya. Yang gue kenal dekat tentu saja karakter-karakternya seperti Hercule Poirot (terutama), Kapten Hastings, Miss Marple,Tommy & Tuppence, dan beberapa karakter lepas lainnya. Kelebihan Agatha Christie terletak pada plotnya. Ia meninggalkan clue-clue yang menuntun pembaca ke akhir cerita

5. I have ever heard only her name. I think that she is a great person, because she couldn't write letters correctly when she was young. However, she grew up and she wrote a wonderful mystery story. I want to read her books!!

a:This sentence appeared that Agatha failed to adopt her novel at magazine. Then,her mother told Agatha this sentence.
b:I thought this sentence was too strong for young Agatha, but I knew gradually her mother believe Agatha. So this sentence was nice I thought.

4.a. Clara was always sure that her daughters could do anything.

b. I liked it because Agatha's mother always trust her daughters what they do.

5. Her writer life was made by her mother. If her mother didn't recommend writing stories, she wouldn't become a writer.

كتاب بسيط يروي حياة الكاتبة اغاثا كرستي في صفحات قليلة
السهل الممتنع دون احداث مكلكعة وتفاصيل مملة
محطات مهمة من ان كان عمرها الى ان توفت
عرفت من خلال هذا الكتاب ان السر الاول والاخير في دعمها والدتها التي لم تتوقف في حثها على الكتابة
في حين ان سر اصرارها على كتابة الروايات البولوسية هي اختها التي قالت لها يوما بانها لا تستطيع فعل ذلك وان ذلك صعب عليها ان تفعله
حياة اغاثا لا تقل غموض عن رواياتها فهي في يوم ما قررت ان تتركت ابنتها مع خادمتيها وتركت سيارتها في الطريق مضاءة الانوار وتركت الباب مفت

Have you read Agatha Christie's book? Do you like mystery?
opinion- Before I read this book, I thought she is good writer.
But actually, it was hard to write good story for her first.
Her novel wasn't accepeted first, but she never give up.
Her mother supported her well. So I think that we need a people who support.

Do you want to write novel if you become ill?
> No but I want to read many kinds of book if I have much time.

This book is about Agatha Christie's life so if you areinterested in Agatha Christie, I reccomemd you.
With many of Christie's famous works being condensed into shorter works for children, this book serves as a amazing little biography for kids which lends a great introduction into the life of one incredibly talented and prolific woman and author. A highly recommended principal channel into the adult world of Agatha Christie's works

3.shy woman, write a story, marry, become famous, disappear, devorce, receive very great honor
4.Do you like reading mistery?-Yes, I like to do very much.
5.She had a life full of ups and downs. That's very reason why she wrote many wonderful stories, I thought.
I thought it would some detective stories written by Agatha Christine, so I was disappointed when I learned this was about the writer's life at first. However, it was good to know about her.
