    About Agatha Christie Hugh Fraser


    1. Agatha Christie also wrote romance novels under the pseudonym Mary Westmacott, and was occasionally published under the name Agatha Christie Mallowan.Agatha Christie is the best selling author of all time She wrote eighty crime novels and story collections, fourteen plays, and several other books Her books have sold roughly four billion copies and have been translated into 45 languages She is the creator of the two most enduring figures in crime literature Hercule Poirot and Miss Jane Marple and author of The Mousetrap, the longest running play in the history of modern theatre Agatha Mary Clarissa Miller was born in Torquay, Devon, England, U.K as the youngest of three The Millers had two other children Margaret Frary Miller 1879 1950 , called Madge, who was eleven years Agatha s senior, and Louis Montant Miller 1880 1929 , called Monty, ten years older than Agatha During the First World War, she worked at a hospital as a nurse later working at a hospital pharmacy, a job that influenced her work, as many of the murders in her books are carried out with poison.On Christmas Eve 1914 Agatha married Archibald Christie, an aviator in the Royal Flying Corps The couple had one daughter, Rosalind Hicks They divorced in 1928, two years after Christie discovered her husband was having an affair.Her first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, came out in 1920 During this marriage, Agatha published six novels, a collection of short stories, and a number of short stories in magazines.In late 1926, Agatha s husband, Archie, revealed that he was in love with another woman, Nancy Neele, and wanted a divorce On 8 December 1926 the couple quarreled, and Archie Christie left their house Styles in Sunningdale, Berkshire, to spend the weekend with his mistress at Godalming, Surrey That same evening Agatha disappeared from her home, leaving behind a letter for her secretary saying that she was going to Yorkshire Her disappearance caused an outcry from the public, many of whom were admirers of her novels Despite a massive manhunt, she was not found for eleven days.In 1930, Christie married archaeologist Max Mallowan Sir Max from 1968 after joining him in an archaeological dig Their marriage was especially happy in the early years and remained so until Christie s death in 1976 In 1977, Mallowan married his longtime associate, Barbara Parker.Christie frequently used familiar settings for her stories Christie s travels with Mallowan contributed background to several of her novels set in the Middle East Other novels such as And Then There Were None were set in and around Torquay, where she was born Christie s 1934 novel Murder on the Orient Express was written in the Hotel Pera Palace in Istanbul, Turkey, the southern terminus of the railway The hotel maintains Christie s room as a memorial to the author The Greenway Estate in Devon, acquired by the couple as a summer residence in 1938, is now in the care of the National Trust.Christie often stayed at Abney Hall in Cheshire, which was owned by her brother in law, James Watts She based at least two of her stories on the hall the short story The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding, which is in the story collection of the same name, and the novel After the Funeral Abney became Agatha s greatest inspiration for country house life, with all the servants and grandeur which have been woven into her plots.During the Second World War, Christie worked in the pharmacy at University College Hospital of University College, London, where she acquired a knowledge of poisons that she put to good use in her post war crime novels To honour her many literary works, she was appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire in the 1956 New Year Honours The next year, she became the President of the Detection Club In the 1971 New Year Honours she was promoted Dame Commande

    2. As light reading between more demanding literary works, Agatha Christie never fails. Although Tommy and Tuppence were always my least favourite sleuths of Agatha Christie’s, the detective formula largely follows the same formulas as in the Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple stories.This one has a bit of Fawlty Towers about it. It’s on the eve of World War II, and T & T go sleuthing in a sleepy seaside boarding house. There they meet the usual suspects: a retired major, a strange foreign woma [...]

    3. To be honest, this book didn't feel so good at the very beginning. But, as the things went ahead, I kept on guessing. Even with obvious fact my belief dangled, and I couldn't be sure of the decisions I made about the antagonist. And by the end I truly loved this story. Its everything you want from a Christie story. There is misdirection, suspense and proper explanation of the facts.Normally I try to be critical about mystery novels, but I have absolutely no complain about this one. So, a full ra [...]

    5. I found this to be an utterly charming and engrossing novel, with many twists and turns; I managed to guess part of the mystery, but was still taken by surprise several times by the end. Tommy and Tuppence are delightful characters, and it was so interesting and thought-provoking, trying to decide which of the commonplace inhabitants of the boarding house were really evil spies. The writing style, too, was charming and light-hearted, although that did not detract from the dramatic parts of the b [...]

    6. This fantastic mystery kept me guessing till the very end. I never did figure out one of the suspects before the big reveal. The narrator, James Warwick, did a marvelous job, doing various voices and accents -- including a toddler's murmurings and another character's stammering -- which, I suppose, shouldn't come as a surprise since he's a television and movie actor (often working on Agatha Christie stories, by the way). The leads, Tommy and Tuppence, were funny, clever, and very entertaining. I [...]

    13. If I am remembering correctly, Tommy and Tuppence are the only major characters in Christie's works who age through their series This story begins with a similar scene to the previous book, "Partners in Crime".It's about 20 years later and the war is in full swing. With a nod to the opening of the previous book, Tommy and Tuppence are lamenting that they are not contributing to the effort -- except for Tuppence's knitting -- because they are considered too old for the action and even their forme [...]

    14. Really enjoyed this book by the prolific and entertaining Agatha Christie. This book N or M? is a fun ride even with it being set in 1940 England, WWII. The main characters are spies Tommy and Tuppence (husband and wife) sent to the coast to find and capture the male (N) and (M) female spies that were the leaders of the Fifth Column-German infiltrators-some sent years before the war, carefully placed to do the most damage when German invasion began. Many were politicians, police, military, intel [...]

    17. Oh, Tommy and Tuppence I do love you two! And reading about your WWII adventures was just as fun and exciting as reading about your adventures during the 1920s.

    18. Such fun! Spies, espionage, and patriotism! I loved Tommy and Tuppence and their relationship. I can't wait to read more about them!

    19. As much as I love Tommy and Tuppence, the plot or mystery in this one was rather too easy to unravel. I figured out who the German Spy ensconced at the hotel was early on and was a bit disapointed it took Tommy and Tuppence so long to catch on. But it was still fun to go on another jaunt with T & T. Where this book really shines for me is that it was published in 1940 and really gives the modern reader a little peak into the prejudices, thoughts and predictions about the war in its early day [...]

    20. All of Tommy and Tuppence mysteries are above all the rest; this one was, perhaps, a little more tragic, but with a pleasing ending-and the only thing that I really didn't like, was how their children were so uninterested in their parent's Great War stories, and thought they were past doing anything!

    22. The author’s purpose in writing this book was to entertain readers. The author did this by writing a mystery. The author also provided information about the Fifth Column which was a group of German spies that had infiltrated all of Europe during WWII. The theme of the story was that even middle-aged detectives can be as sharp as young detectives. The two protagonists had a hard time finding work during the war because they were considered too old to be of any use. However, they were brought in [...]

Could they be part-Spanish landlady Mrs Perenna, sulky daughter Sheila, refugee von Deinem, mustached Mrs O'Rourke, bluff Major Bletchley, elderly Miss Minton, invalid Cayley or attentive wife Elisabeth? Surely not Mrs Sprot with lisping toddler Betty?A typically wonderful book by Christie. Light hearted and lyrical. Tommy and Tuppence are [...]

    24. I enjoyed this one, but not as much as I otherwise would have had I not guessed several plot twists and then realized this was all vaguely familiar because I had, in fact, read this book before. I don't remember doing so, but halfway through the book I suddenly sat back with a deja vu feeling, and by the end I was definitely sure that I must have picked this one up at some point in my novel-filled past.It's still a jolly good time when all is said and done, though. Honestly, who wouldn't want a [...]

    25. This is a-m-a-z-i-n-g. I love how husband and wife work together to find a spy for the Germans during WW2. I will guarantee you probably won't guess who's the bad guy! One star off for some swearing.

    28. We last saw Tommy and Tuppence in 1929’s Partners in Crime, which ended with the announcement that Tuppence was ready to enter their biggest adventure yet, having a baby. Now, in 1941’s N or M?, the duo faces a much more serious adventure than before in serving their country by seeking out a spy.The Second World War is just beginning to gain momentum, and both Tommy and Tuppence keep getting turned down for any forms of war work in the basis that they are too old, though their twins have no [...]

Well-written adventure mystery, with some interesting and humane thoughts about the nature of war and the demands it makes on protagonists on both sides.
