"Miss Marple" afferma Agatha Christie nella sua autobiografia "si intrufolò così silenziosamente nella mia vita che quasi non mi accorsi del suo arrivo. Scrissi una serie di racconti per una rivista, immaginando che in un villaggio sei persone si riunissero per raccontare qualche caso rimasto insoluto." Sono appunto i "tredici problemi" che Miss Marple e i suoi amici affro ...more

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

Que libro tan ingenioso, primero que leo de Agatha Christie. Aunque el desarrollo de cada misterio es denso y prolongado, cada uno es igual de interesante.

Son historias cortas de misterios, en las cuales Miss Marple se encuentra reunida con grupos de personajes que quedan fascinados por su habilidad de ver y entender la naturaleza del ser humano y así poder descifrar cada uno de los problemas que cada uno de ellos iba exp

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

أكاد أجزم إن القصص التي جمعت هنا كانت الكاتبة أجاثا دونت فكرتها كروؤس أقلام على أن تفرد لها رواية مستقلة كون فكرتها تستحق ذلك إلا إنها أعني أجاثا ولسبب ما قررت جمعها بهذا الشكل إما إنها كانت مجهدة ذهنيا أو لم تتوفر لها الحبكة المناسبة
كان إيقاع الأحداث سريع كونها 13 قصة في رواية واحدة.. وكانت فارسة الأمسية الأنسة ماربل خارقة بشكل مبالغ فيه :)
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
Lou Robinson
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.
3 Stars

I am really liking Miss Marple. She is feisty, smart but not overwhelming or prudish. Nice, short mysteries that make us wonder, "who-dun-it?"

وقالت جويس : نعم يا خالة جين، نحن ننتظر منك قصة مثيرة حقاً.

قالت الآنسة ماربل ببساطة : أنتم تضحكون في سرّكم مني يا أعزائي. تظنون أنني -وقد عشت كل حياتي في بقعة معزولة- لا يُرجَّح أن تكون لدي أي تجارب مثيرة.

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.
Dannii Elle
If you need thirteen little reasons to convince yourself that Christie is the actual queen of crime fiction, then look no further. These thirteen tales are bound with a loose narrative that links them all, and each one had me sleuthing and deducing to solve the crime before the beloved Miss Marple did.

As with much of Christie's work, I found this a very autobiographical piece. All the characters, at one point, display interests that match Christie's own, and speak of anecdotes that parallel h

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.

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

The Thirteen Problems (Miss Marple #2), Original Publication Year 1932
Characters: Miss Jane Marple, Sir Henry Clithering last Commissioner of Scotland Yard, nephew writer Raymond West, artist Joyce Lemprière, elderly clergyman Dr Pender, and dried-up little bespectacled solicitor Mr Petherick.
Abstract: While genial gentle soft white-haired Jane, in black lace cap and mittens of the time, knits, her Tuesday week visitors present early experiences, recently solved usually by confession of particip
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
This book finishes the 'Marple' segment of my 'Agatha Christie Marathon'.
I couldn't have chosen a better book. This book is just IT! Very plausible solutions and I am glad to say, I could guess the correct solutions in quite a few of the problems. Just shows that I have been an average student in understanding the art of deduction and the 'study of human character'.
A very good book for anyone who wishes to start reading Agatha Christie books.
As I have finished with Miss Marple with this, I must

وبكل الألغاز استطاعت الأنسة ماربل ان تحل جميعها أحيانا كانت تطابق ما جاء في اللغز بقضية حدثت في مدينتها ولأنه كما تقول هي أن الطبيعة البشرية تتشابه كثيرا فاستطاعت ان تحل الألغاز نظرا لذلك وبالإضافة لخبرتها في الحياة

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
4.5 Stars.

Some of the mysteries were more intriguing than others. I am really liking Sir Henry Clithering. I appreciate his respect of Miss Marple's wisdom. I look forward to seeing him pop up in her future stories.
A series of short stories propounding a mystery each, solved by Miss Marple. Most ingenious and wonderfully entertaining. It is remarkable how few words are required to describe a situation and its resolution.
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
