    I liked all Poirot books.. The Murder of Roger Ackroyd... I wrote a paper on it once.. (though its ending and the "unreliable narrator" didnt surprise me much), also Murder on the Orient Express... I have read only one of Miss.Marple book.. The Moving Finger... didnt find it much interesting.

    The first time I read "Murder on the Orient Express," I was delighted to be deceived by the ending (though the second and third times I made my way through it, the solution seemed painfully obvious). Which is why I have stopped rereading mysteries.
    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone, there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

    I love her books. I´m a fan of Hercules Poirot though I didn´t like ``Curtain: Poirot´s last case ´´
    I think my favourite book is `` The Mousetrap ´´ Because It´s a very entertaining book and I liked the message that transmits

    well, i'm a big fan of poirot and come on, "curtain" is a really great book, i never thought that poirot would kill someone, it was a shok, and seriously, the way how the murdere wsa killing people was genious

    And Then There Were None is her best book.

    I read most of them when I was a kid, then later I went back and re-read them. I hate to say it, but as time goes on I like her less and less. She couldn't create a lifelike character to save her life, and even the plots are not all that baffling once you begin to recognize her two or three favorite tricks...

    I agree! Ten Little Indians was the first Christie book I read, and it is still my favorite after reading so many of the others!!! I also loved Black Coffee.

    Ten Little Niggers.
    At thunder and tempest, At the world's coldheartedness,
    During times of heavy loss And when you're sad
    The greatest art on earth Is to seem uncomplicatedly gay.

    To get things clear, they have to firstly be very unclear. But if you get them too quickly, you probably got them wrong.

    Evil under the sun
    The Hollow - I performed in that on stage. I played Edward Angatell.
    Death on the Nile
    The Sittaford Mystery - First one I read so it holds a special place in my heart


    I prefer Poirot books to Marple. And I find Tommy and Tuppence a bit annoying.

    As to Re-reading them I find almost as much fun in spotting where the clues and red herrings are.

    PLEASE DO NOT GIVE ENDINGS AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
