What fun! But such a fiendish quiz! I had a to guess a couple as I thought I got them mixed up.

Deborah (deborahkliegl) | 140 comments It was fiendish. It’s been so long since I’ve done a Christie binge that I’m stumped


message 4: by Christine PNW, Agathyte (new)

Christine PNW (moonlight_reader) | 922 comments Ha! I could have kept going, but decided to stop at 10.

Karina | 8 comments 7 out of 10...

That's quite good - some of those were pretty obscure!

Megan | 26 comments 2 out of 10. I didn't think I'd get any. That was hard!

By the time we are done here, you'll know all of the answers, lol!

You are brave. I decided not to even grade it 😸


message 10: by Lesle (new)

Lesle 4 out of 10 but to be honest I guessed on all of them so really 0 out of 10 :(


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) (themis-athena) | 471 comments Excellent quiz! I revisited quite a few of these fairly recently ... that definitely helped.


message 12: by Lillelara (new)

Lillelara | 65 comments 7 out of 10. It would have been 8 out of 10, but I´ve got the easiest of them all wrong: I´ve put Mary Debenham in the wrong book.

I nearly mixed up the Ms Greys...

Those Miss Greys are quite tricky. There is even a third Miss Grey who didn't make it into the quiz!

At least they're distinguishable. I'd have cried foul if you'd included a maid named Gladys ...

I would never do such a thing. GAD fiction requires that we play fair!

Bwahahahahaaa...!!

Indeed! "Play up, play up, and play the game" ... :)

An excellent point! We should have a thread for things that we spot which Christie does over and over again.

- Maids called Gladys

And I would add

- somebody who is adenoidal / has adenoids.

Seriously. She obviously had a thing about adenoids 🤷🏽‍♀️

Ruth | 57 comments Oh dear! 4 out of 10. Whets the appetite for a re-read though doesn't it!


Natalie aka Tannat | 93 comments 4 out of 10, but I haven't read most of those books!

Lillelara | 65 comments Uhm, it´s is slightly off topic, but because of one specific thing discussed in this thread (and a multitude of other things, which I know a whole lot of you love - at least the people I have known for a very long time), I think the majority of you would really enjoy reading To Say Nothing of the Dog. I´m not telling you anything more specific, though ;).

I've been meaning to reread To Say Nothing of the Dog, actually. Buddy read?

I´m almost done with, I have a about five hours left of my audiobook. But maybe someone else is interested in a buddy read. I think that would be a whole lot of fun for everyone :). And I would be lurking on the sidelines, following the conversation.
So far I´m loving it so much and the narrator of the audiobook is fantastic.

Probably not until November for me, but it's a definite maybe at that point. My reading for the next three months is already completely overscheduled!

I actually meant a general buddy read if others were interested. I realize I didn't express myself very well. I figured you were finished or just about finished!

Yeah, I´m a bit burned out at the moment and my brain doesn´t work properly, so I didn´t get that when i first read it. I should have gotten that, though. Sorry :).


Natalie aka Tannat | 93 comments Regardless, you'll get to watch from the sidelines :)


message 29: by Tara (new)

Tara  | 105 comments Shockingly I managed to get 9/10. Some I had to do a process of elimination if I hadn't read the book, but I did better than I expected!
