VINE VOICEon 17 January 2005
This is only a short book, but Anne Hart has carefully combed all the Miss Marple novels and short stories to put together as clear a picture as possible of Agatha Christie's elderly Lady detective. Although the stories Miss Marple appears in are discussed, Hart doesn't give away the identity of the murderer or culprit, which is good to know if you've not read all the Miss Marple stories. All in all this is an excellent Miss Marple companion, which puts stories in a chronological order, provides a map of St Mary Mead and helps out with the characters who have appeared in some of the stories. My only tiny criticism is the few Americanisms in the book, which are a bit jarring. The book also provides a filmography of all the dramatisations based on Miss Marple that have appeared on screen and radio.

A really nice little book, but if the reader is hoping for an in depth look at the life of Jane Marple, they will be disappointed, avid fans will love it.
Anne Hart has done well with the material available of that there is no doubt, but what I would love to see would be a fictionalised biography in full of the life of Miss.Marple, that would be wonderful.

Loses one star because the kindle edition of this book does NOT contain the Map of St Mary Mead repeatedly referred to as a reference throughout the book!! Big fail Amazon!! I have the paperback and it's definitely a useful tool to have the map when reading this.

A fun look at the life and times of Miss Marple. I made me want to read all the books in the sequence Anne Hart has devised.

The cover of the book I received is not the same as the pictures shows, which means I got an older version. a little disappointed.
