Kelebihan Agatha Christie terletak pada plotnya. Ia meninggalkan clue-clue yang menuntun pembaca ke akhir cerita...more

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.

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
