    " Gives a lot of good background about Agatha Christie's childhood and her life through her first marriage to Archie Christie, but the material becomes thin regarding her later career. Does reveal how Christie became so knowledgeable about poisons, the Orient Express, and some other elements of her books, but doesn't offer much in-depth analysis of her work. "

    " Interesting explanation of the missing 11 days and her second marriage. A bit ponderous,would have liked more about the books than just pub date and US titles.... "

    " Wonderful, detailed history of Agatha Christie's life. My favorite sections where when the author drew us to coincidings of her life and writing, such as her work with her archaeologiest husband is reflected in "Murder in Mesopotamia" and her experience on a stalled Orient Express shows up in "Murder on the Orient Express." The lengthy section on her self-imposed disappearance in the 1920s which shows up as the opening and chronologically, is a little unusual since the author moves into omniscient thought for Agatha Christie, and that's obviously invented. Since most of the book is not historical fiction, that sticks out a little. But overall, lots of great background for Christie fans. "

    " Agatha Christie was an interesting and accomplished person, However the detail in this books is a bit annoying. I really do not care what she did not have for breakfast on December 3, 1926. "
