General

KerrieS presents THE-AGATHA-CHRISTIE-READING-GROUP-GUIDE posted at MYSTERIES in PARADISE, saying, "Some questions about MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS and some general discussion questions that I came across."

BooksPlease presents Crime Fiction Alphabet W is for Why Didn?t They Ask Evans? posted at BooksPlease, saying, "'Why didn't they ask Evans?' is a dying man's cryptic question. Bobby and Frankie set out to discover who the man is and just what does Evans know - indeed who is Evans?."

Chris Well presents Agatha Christie meets Doctor Who posted at The Thrill of it All, saying, "In the 2008 episode "The Unicorn and the Wasp," the Doctor and friend Donna Noble travel back in time to meet Agatha Christie on the eve of her real-life unexplained disappearance in 1926. The episode is a clever mash-up of sci-fi and whodunit, loaded with references and allusions to Christie's works -- and is also very, very funny. (As the video clips demonstrate.)"

Belle Wong presents Agatha Christie’s Secret Notebooks posted at Ms. Bookish, saying, "I’ve read the first few chapters and it’s such a delight to see how she worked out her story ideas in her notebooks."







Hercule Poirot

 Margot at Joyfully Retired presents Agatha Christie: Peril At End House posted at Joyfully Retired, saying, "This is book 13 in my challenge to read all of Christie’s books in order of their publication date. I also watched the movie version of this on dvd. It starred the wonderful David Suchet as Poirot, Hugh Fraser as Hastings, Phillip Jackson as Inspector Japp, and Polly Walker as Nick Buckley.

Short Stories

Elizabeth presents The Mysterious Mr. Quin posted at Miss Lemon's Mysteries, saying, "Always appearing unpredictably and in a dazzling spectrum of light, Mr. Harley Quin's essence is best summed up thus: he comes; he goes."

Tommy and Tuppence

Chris Well presents Agatha Christie: Partners in Crime posted at The Thrill of it All, saying, "In her 1929 book Partners in Crime, Christie takes the opportunity to poke fun at her fellow mystery writers, all of whom were well-known to the reading public of the 1920s.
