Format: Hardcover
The History Press serve up another little corker for whodunnit fans, following the success of The Sherlock Holmes Miscellany. The quote on the back (Christie doing her best thinking in the bath) is aptly chosen as this tactile tome will no doubt become a bathtime favourite.

Neither a stuffy academic journal nor a wikipedia entry, fans will find their own level amongst the well worn anecdotes and the more obscure trivia. I've read about two thirds of the queen of crime's output, and her autobiography, and still found plenty of interest here. Broken down into neat sections that run for a couple of pages or a few paragraphs (biggest real life coincidence of characters, Poirot's eating habits, etc), it's endlessly pick-upable.

A bit like a well run book club, the tone is conversational but well informed and Cathy Cook clearly knows her stuff. As with all good miscellanies, it gives you the appetite to reread the source material: even the most knowledgeable fan is bound to be engaged by the Poirot vs Marple chapter (I love Poirot, but it's Marple for me every time!). A treat to be read and reread!

I bought this fasinating book at the airport and it kept me entertained during my four hour flight.

I found out so much about Christie and was intrigued to discover how her mind worked.The pictures and illustrations were lovely and I learnt so much about the mystery lady.

I would highly reccomend this book to my family and friends. Thank you to the author Cathy Cook for sharing these fasinating facts. A great read. My only complaint was that it wasn't longer. Hope we can expect volume two in the future.

I heard an interview with the author Cathy Cook on Radio Essex and found her so interesting and delightful that I immediately placed an order and was fascinated with the facts she revealed. Great to pick up and put down, this is a perfect gift for any Christie fan
