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

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

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

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

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.

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?"

A travers ces petits récits, chaque membre du Club du Mardi prend la parole. Mais qui aura le dernier mot et résoudra le mystère? Avec ce recueil de nouvelles, nous suivons Miss Marple, l’un de ses personnages récurrents, qui résout des énigmes avec une facilité déconcertante. C’est un personnage attachant, qui observe la société autour d’elle. Et sous ses airs innocents, elle est une femme pleine de malice et d’intelligence, dont les déductions, parfois si évidentes, mettent les autres personna ...more

Several people get together during various occasions, and they decide to tell stories... of the mysterious murder sort of type. To a fan of historical romances, I suppose this would count as the equivalent of parlor games? Only so much more fun. And to make things even more interesting, the storyteller won't (at first) reveal the murderer's identity.

A book with 13 distinct puzzles penned by Agatha Christie? Christmas has indeed come early. Specifically by 2 days, according to the date I started

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’

Repeat after me: Miss Marple is never wrong.

A few people, Miss Marple and her nephew Raymond included, amuse themselves by telling stories of strange murder cases whenever they meet. Only the teller knows the true solution to the problem, while everyone else tries to guess what happened.

There's a certain charm in this type of storytelling, but at one point I started feeling that Christie loves making Miss Marple the perfect mystery-solver a bit too much. So much so, in fact, that not only is sh

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.

The wonderful, kindly, unassuming old lady from St. Mary Meads demonstrates her acuity and profound understanding of the human nature in this beautifully put together collection of short stories.

The book starts with a cosy fireside chat after an assumably uneventful evening where the characters share some story/mystery they have come across at some point in there lives. The scramble to solve these mysteries ensues and none other than the "unworldly" and the small-town old lady Miss Marple comes
The Tuesday Club Murders was underwhelming. When it comes to Agatha Christie I just expect a little something more from her writing. This collection of short stories chronologically falls very, very early in the Miss Marple series and you can definitely tell that Christie is still trying to find just what Miss Marple is creatively.

The collection is framed by the idea that a group of friends, and regulars in the Miss Marple series, are all gathered together and decide to play a game. Each person

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

Oh, Miss Marple, you do delight! The Thirteen Problems's premise is simple - a group chat at a gathering, and their conversation turns to unsolved mysteries. The mysteries are concise and intriguing, and as always Agatha Christie gives away just enough to make you feel quite proud of yourself should you, once or twice, manage to come up with the solution. The other members of the party, though telling their share of mysteries, do not have much to offer when it comes to solving. Miss Marple, as o ...more

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.

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
