When one utters the word "detective" or "sleuth", what is the image that comes to mind? A studious gentleman with monocle wandering about with a magnifying glass? A trench-coated, lantern-jawed, hard-boiled individual prowling the back alleys of dark America? Or... a little, pink old lady sitting in the corner, trying to catch up on her knitting?

For fans of Agatha Christie's Miss Marple, the third image is as valid as the first two.

This unlikely detective relies on her intimate knowledge of huma

I'm probably a bit more than halfway through (re)reading Dame Agatha's canon. I admit that I've been disagreeably surprised by the number of adventure novels mixed in with the mysteries; she actually wrote a great many of the former, but there is a reason her reputation rests exclusively on the latter! After plodding through one too many of her "random adventurer in exotic locale with vague political intrigue" novels, I found myself starting to feel a bit soured on my Year of Agatha and decided ...more

Choose Your Own Adventure!

You are a book club and you specialize in mystery and murder. It is a grand old time. There is also a quasi-member of the club, an Angela Lansbury type, a dotty biddy from the old school. You try to include her but you also find yourself talking around her. It is hard not to be condescending: there is so little she knows of the modern world. Still, her archaic point of view is at times quaintly charming. At times you are shocked by her preposterous conclusions, but you

I like Miss Marple, I really do.

She has sparkling blue eyes, a demure smile, a friendly disposition, an inquisitive mind. She has a simple country charm and a prolific knowledge of poisons. She makes us yearn for tea, good company, good conversation, cozy quilted chairs and warm fires.

However, when Miss Marple is taken in concentrated doses ..rapidly told ..back to back? Lets say, the tea becomes a bit sweet, the fire too warm and the conversation condescending. Yes, Miss Marple, the old biddy

Agatha Christie's compilation of Miss Marple stories, The Thirteen Problems, was published in 1932. It marks the second appearance in book form of Christie's beloved spinster sleuth, Miss Jane Marple, whose debut in The Murder at the Vicarage had occurred only two years earlier.

Miss Marple is my favorite Christie character. I love the contradiction of the wooly-headed old dear, who despite living in a quaint English village, has an uncanny, some might say ruthless, awareness of the absolute wor

Amazing, a Miss Marple book that I'm convinced I've never read (and I really did devour Agatha Christie novels as a kid). Thirteen whimsical problems, discussed over dinner. And of course, Miss Marple hones in on the right answer every time, with her vast knowledge of village life and human nature. Nothing like a good old murder mystery or two. Or thirteen.

أجابها ريموند متحمساً : لا يسعني أن أعتبر حياة القرية هادئة تخلو من الأحداث؛ ليس بعد كل الإكتشافات الفظيعة التي سمعناها منك! إن مجتمع المدينة يبدو مكاناً هادئاً مسالماً إذا ما قورن بقري سانت ميري ميد.

I have been a massive fan of Dame Agatha Christie for a loooong time; however this was my first time reading one of her "short story" books. Since I am used to reading her proper long novels and know their structure pretty well, it was kind of strange to get out from the known style and get used to something "new". But what can I do? I am always helpless under Agatha's pen...

I took this tiny book to my most recent trip thinking it would demand less attention from me and be more easily readable.

No es oro todo lo que reluce

Una de mis escritoras favoritas es Agatha Christie, pero me ocurre algo extraño con ella. Le perdono cosas que no les perdonaría a mis otros autores favoritos. John Irving o Andrzej Sapkowski, por poner dos ejemplos, me gustan por sus estilos, por su capacidad para trazar personajes y, en definitiva, por casi todo. Pero con Christie no me pasa eso. Su estilo, dejando a un lado el rollo ese psi

None of Marple’s short stories are brilliant, but this collection is satisfying enough for a Marple fan. Unusually, the stories are framed as part of a series of dinner conversations, in which a group of amateur problem-solvers get together to discuss murder and mayhem. This premise has a wonderful ambience which lends the stories an air of something stronger than they actually are.

A few of the problems: rarely do the stories sideswipe you with a surprise (the short form was just never Christie’

I was never really into Agatha Christie before. One day, I got nothing to read, and asked my sister to lend me some of her novels. She was a hardcore fan of Agatha Christie, so she gave me this book.

When I started reading, I didn't expect really much from this book. But it did exceed my expectations, I got captivated. Enough said.

Alternate title: The Tuesday Club Murders
Miss Marple puts her deductive skills to use in thirteen of her most fiendish cases in this short story collection from the reigning matriarch of mystery.
Miss Marple is having a visit from her nephew, the novelist Raymond West; as a game the group each tells a ‘mystery’ and the others try to guess the solution. The game is then played later with a different group at the home of Colonel and Mrs Bantry. It kind of works like a bunch of short stories, each p

Miriam was looking for something to read the other night, and I ran across some Agatha Christie novels. She ended up not reading them (she wanted Murder on the Orient Express, so I bought her that, and she really liked it, but didn't feel a need to read other Christie novels), so since I had them piled up, I picked this up and read it.

Wow, I totally love the Miss Marple stories! This is a collection of very short mysteries, most of which are related after the fact as a puzzle for others, either

I finished right at midnight last night. I had read this or had it on audio book prior since i recognized alot of the stories. Was fun to read again. several stood out in my mind. The four suspects. maybe I am dense, but which one actually did it? I got confused by Miss Marple lol. I like the Blue Geranium and remembered it had been a favorite prior. The first story I recalled best and knew exactly the outcome.(Which is probably how it is with first of books-most likely.)the Blood Stained Paveme ...more

At our family cabin there is a small collection of Agatha Christie novels. Last time I went to the cabin I forgot to bring a book to read. So picked up this one just to pass the time. I only read two or three stories last time and this time I read atleast six. There are 13 short stories and the main character is Miss Marple, an observer of human behavior in the small town of St. Mary Mead. Miss Marple has never been anywhere which has given her the unique opportunity to observe others in a fish ...more

Este livro é constituído por treze contos, mistérios contados por diferentes participantes num convívio dinamizado pela sempre perspicaz, sempre atenta, Miss Marple. Ninguém melhor do que ela para analisar diferentes estórias e, com o seu conhecimento sobre a natureza humana, desvendar o que jaz por trás dos mistérios aparentemente insolúveis.

Todos os contos encontram-se bem desenvolvidos, intrigantes e sempre com reviravoltas que me deixa

Thirteen short stories were bundled in this volume. As a group of friends fond of detective stories gather to tell each other solved mysteries in order to test their deductive reasoning. Among the cases, the intelligence of a single woman will stand out: she is a quiet a rural ancient lady whose name is Miss Marple.

A book really easy to read: the stories and short and provide all the elements to solve the problems. Some of them even show an outstanding quality, which is a delightful surprise the

Recommends it for: readers who love mysteries
Agatha Christie is an absolute genius at plotting mysteries. I love the idea in this book of short stories of the Tuesday Club: a group of people who meet up (including Miss Marple) to discuss mysteries. It's great to have these stories collected together too because in the course of their telling, we begin to learn quite a bit about the characters tellings the stories and listening, including one who considers committing a crime herself. Miss Marple is a wonderful character, as the appearance o ...more

Some of the enigmas were of easy resolution, but what I liked most was the narrative aspect of this book. A group of people, that gathers to spend a good evening, try to solve crimes. Every element of the group tells a story, in which was involved or have the knowledge of, being the only one who knows the end of it. The others have to discover the truth. It was a different but interesting way of using the little grey cells and put to practice what everyone knows about human's nature. I'm startin ...more

The birth of Miss Marple, what's not to love!

As most reviews here seem to forget, this is a collection of previously published stories, rather than "a novel with a strange format", which many people are complaining about.
Sure, it's bound to be "repetitive", just like if you watch a complete season of a TV show in one sitting, the opening "Previously..." is bound to be repetitive.
These stories, most of which were published in reviews before The Murder at the Vicarage, are almost a century old, f

Agatha Christie’s collection of superb short stories, in the form of a ‘Tuesday Night Club’, wherein each week a different member of the group will propound a problem or mystery, of which he / she has personal knowledge. Some know the answers, while some are given the answer, by none other than the inimitable Miss Marple.

If you listen to her explanation, one would assume her village to be a hotbed of criminal elements, since each time she solves a mystery, she refers to somebody from her villag

This is vintage Christie, and vintage Miss Marple. The set-up of the book is that dinner party guests decide to pass the evening by trying to guess the solutions to several unsolved mysteries - and it's a fun way to pass an evening for the reader, as well. The stories are short, the solutions are clever, and the book gives a fascinating glimpse into the social life of 1920s/1930s England, when fading Victorianism was rubbing shoulders with spiritualism and the progress of the "New Woman."

Agatha Christie also wrote romance novels under the pseudonym Mary Westmacott, and was occasionally published under the name Agatha Christie Mallowan.

Agatha Mary Clarissa Miller was born in Torquay, Devon, England, U.K., as the youngest of three. The Millers had two other children: Margaret Frary Miller (1879–1950), called Madge, who was eleven years Agatha's senior, and Louis Montant Miller (1880
