To commemorate the 100th anniversary of Agatha Christie's first novel, Royal Mail issued stamps with clues.

The Murder of Roger Ackroyd was published 90 years ago and is still readable and controversial today. I have to say that Agatha Christie is one of the most popular and successful authors of all time.

I still remember the first time that I read Roger Ackroyd, and the absolute stunned feeling I had! I love it still.

Ginny (burmisgal) | 190 comments I seem to remember that there is a new biography that someone recommended to me, but the first thing that pops up is Agatha: The Real Life of Agatha Christie which looks fascinating. Has anyone read it?

I seem to remember reading an excerpt a while back, but I recommend her autobiography instead. It's always better to get the story from the horse's mouth, right?! Besides, she rights so well that it's a pleasure to read!
