5.0 out of 5 stars A unique contribution to our knowledge of Agatha Christie's writing, 16 Oct. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Agatha Christie's Secret Notebooks: Fifty Years of Mysteries in the Making - Includes Two Unpublished Poirot Stories (Hardcover)
Mr Curran has written a wonderful book to add a unique contribution to the vast collection of books about Agatha Christie.

He has been given access to a collection of notebooks which Agatha Christie used to record her thoughts about her writing in progress. He has written in so much detail about these notebooks that the resulting text will give all Christie fans so much more insight into her thinking and planning for so many of her books. Details include much about her characters, name changes and plot changes during her writing and even facsimiles of diagrams she drew to note settings for individual stories (e.g. Death in the Clouds, Evil Under the Sun, Towards Zero) make for fascinating reading. Two 'new' undiscovered short stories are included in the book. There is so much more and I'm sure every Christie fan will find something new of interest.

Sadly, there were no available notebooks covering 'Murder of Roger Ackroyd', 'Murder on the Orient Express' and a few others but this unavailability is, of course, not down to the author.

An absolute must for all Christie fans to buy and a bargain at the reduced Amazon price.
