Customer Review

on 2 October 2011
This book appeared around the same time as another book covering very similar ground, Brett Hawthorne's Agatha Christie's Devon. Hawthorne's book was more a pictorial guide to the places that were important to Christie when she was growing up, and those that influenced her writing. Macaskill's book does the same thing, but with more emphasis on Agatha Christie's life, making it a beautifully produced biography. The photography in Macaskill's book also has the edge, accurately depicting Devon as a very beautiful place. On the subject of the photos, some of the best photos in this book originally appeared in the book In the Footsteps of Agatha Christie, a similar book but less comprehensive but with stunning original photography. Macaskill is an engaging writer, covering everything from Christie's early life to the author's own travels around Devon. Everything from the coast up to Dartmoor is covered, with womderful photography throughout. A true coffee table book, and unlike Hawthorne's a bit too big to take with you around Devon, it's a wonderful read and very well done.
