For the last 10 days we Celebrated the life and work of Agatha Christie with a blog tour where bloggers undertook to put up a special post on their own site.
Now for the contributions people have made to this Carnival:


KerrieS discovered a number of articles:

Nan presents Letters from a Hill Farm: Book Report/They Came to Baghdad posted at Letters from a Hill Farm, saying, "A review from last year of a book I really loved."

G.M. Malliet presents On the Agatha Christie Trail posted at InkSpot saying, "I've just returned from two weeks in England. Not entirely by design, the trip turned, in part, into a pilgrimage to sites associated with Agatha Christie's life and works."

Elizabeth presents The Secret Notebooks of Agatha Christie posted at Miss Lemon's Mysteries, saying, "Miss Lemon fears that Mrs. Christie would be dismayed at this news that so excites her readers."

unfinishedperson presents THE BOOMERANG CLUE posted at Just A (Reading) Fool, saying, "This is a good book for those who enjoy a light, extremely light, read and liked the Tommy and Tuppence novels."

Hercule Poirot

Mog reviews BLACK COFFEE. posted at MOG'S BLOG, saying, "Originally a screenplay, it is adapted as a novel by Charles Osborne."

Sarah M. presents THE A.B.C. MURDERS posted at A library is a hospital for the mind..., saying, "One of my all-time favorite Christie Who Dunits!"

KerrieS presents MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS (audio book) posted at MYSTERIES in PARADISE, saying, "What has delighted me so much in this audio book has been Suchet's superb characterisation of each person."

Joseph reviews THE MYSTERIOUS AFFAIR AT STYLES posted at Peace of Brain. saying "This famous mystery classic saw the debut of the great detective Hercule Poirot."

Sarah M. reviews DEATH IN THE CLOUDS posted at A library is a hospital for the mind.... saying "this is a fun read. It is also a little unusual, for unlike most of Christie's novels this crime has a closed crime setting. "

unfinishedperson presents MURDER IN THREE ACTS posted at Just A (Reading) Fool, saying, "So who did it? Well, I’m not going to tell you. You’ll have to read it for yourself. However, I can tell you that even if like me, you had an inkling of who the murderer was, you won’t be disappointed in the ride on which Dame Christie takes you to expose him (or her)."

unfinishedperson presents DEATH IN THE AIR posted at Just A (Reading) Fool, saying "when it got to the end and the perpetrator of the crime, I didn't quite believe it. It seemed a little too much of a leap that really wasn't seen in earlier parts of the book."

unfinishedperson presents The A.B.C. Murders posted at Just A (Reading) Fool, saying "John Curran, who edited the official Agatha Christie newsletter for years, named this book one of the top 10 Agatha Christie mysteries, and, in my humble opinion, I believe he is correct in his assessment.

Miss Marple

Martin Edwards presents A Pocket Full of Rye posted at 'Do You Write Under Your Own Name?', saying, "Some thoughts on Julia McKenzie's TV debut as Jane Marple."

Dorte H reviews SLEEPING MURDER(1976) posted at DJs krimiblog saying "This may be Miss Marple´s last case, but the appealing old woman is in great shape. "

ng kai-lee presents Marple Revisited; When the Mirror Crack'd posted at zhen's tofu shop, saying, "Original title The Mirror Crack'd from Side to Side. Do you know the origins of this title?"

That concludes this edition.
