BooksPlease presents Agatha Christie Reading Challenge Update posted at BooksPlease, saying, "I'm loving this challenge!"

Martin Edwards presents Christie, Christie, everywhere posted at 'Do You Write Under Your Own Name?', saying, "reading Christie remains one of my favourite forms of escapism."

Margot Kinberg reviews AND THEN THERE WERE NONE posted at Confessions of a Mystery Novelist....: "It’s one of Christie’s few mystery novels in which there isn’t really one sleuth as such, even an amateur one."

KerrieS presents Review: WHY DIDN'T THEY ASK EVANS? posted at MYSTERIES in PARADISE, saying, "While playing a round of golf, Bobby Jones slices his ball over the edge of a cliff. His ball is lost, but on the rocks below he finds the crumpled body of a dying man. With his final breath the man opens his eyes and says, ‘Why didn’t they ask Evans?’
This novel is an interesting exploration of the impact of class differences in English society, at the same time as being an absorbing murder mystery."

KerrieS presents Kerrie's ACRC Update - 17 October 2009 posted at MYSTERIES in PARADISE, saying, "Progress report: I've read 15 books and 4 collections of short stories in 13 months. This post lists my reviews, and path ahead."

Submitted by KerrieS And now for something completely different... posted at Type M for Murder, saying, "Rick Bletcha who blogs at TypeM for Murder comments on Agatha Christie’s Poirot, The Movie Collection, Set 4. The ‘feel’ of the stories is perfect and the attention to detail is really quite astounding."

Hercule Poirot

Nan presents In which we meet Hercule Poirot posted at Letters from a Hill Farm, saying, "Hercule Poirot's first appearance."

Margot at Joyfully Retired reviews Book Review: The Big Four posted at Joyfully Retired saying, "This eighth published novel by Christie reads a little different from the others."

Elizabeth presents Third Girl posted at Miss Lemon's Mysteries, saying, "Critics tend to pooh-pooh the later works of Agatha Christie as not up to her golden mean. But Third Girl, published in 1966, is evidence to the contrary...."

Miss Marple

Roberta Rood presents From Christie to Shakespeare, in one easy leap posted at Books to the Ceiling.

HelenB presents Book 26 - A pocket full of rye, or: "I simply can't swallow this nursery rhyme business." posted at 52 Books A Year.
