Goes deeper than the usual bios The author of this works shows how Agatha Christie’s private life and the traumas she endured pushed her to go beyond the usual norms of mystery writing, surprising and enchanting her readers. Recommended for fans of Agatha Christie’s writing, as it lends insight into her life and her work.

Thanks to Gillian Gill we are allowed a glimpse of our beloved Ms. Christie This book does a very nice job of rounding out the character of Our Agatha. Almost everyone living and breathing has heard of this famous mystery writer, but a fraction of those people know the events in Christie’s life that created a basis for her most loved tales.Gill’s obvious respect for Christie allows her readers to enjoy reading this biography almost as much as Gill must have had in writing it.One criticism would be that this book does tend to linger in the area…

Abysmal I completely agree with cattlovrr. Gave up after 50 pages. Dreadful. Felt like a vehicle to advance the author’s feminist agenda; read like a pedantic, poorly edited term paper.Read her books or The 8:55 to Bagdad (The 8:55 to Baghdad: From London to Iraq on the Trail of Agatha Christie and the Orient Express by Andrew Eames -http://www.amazon.com/Baghdad-London-Agatha-Christie-Express/dp/1585678023) and enjoy the trip.
