Wonderful Miss Marple short stories Jan. 7 2006
By S. Schwartz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
No one can do characterizations like Dame Christie, and she can even do these remarkably well within the confines of a short story. This little book of Miss Marple short stories is a wonderful cap to the entire Miss Marple series. I had read some of them individually, but there were some I had not read before, and I enjoyed them all. My own particular favourite though was "The Case of the Perfect Maid" (an oxymoron if there ever was one). It is remarkable how Ms. Christie can typecast each of her wonderful characters so quickly, and provide us with tricky and intricate mysteries at the same time.

Kindle Miss Marple Jan. 19 2010
By V. Jeter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I got my Kindle for Christmas, but the first thing I downloaded had to be special. I thought about the books that got me hooked on reading mysteries as a young person, and I knew that something from Agatha Christie was IT! I was so pleased to find this 3-book collection. It is so reasonably priced, and Miss Marple is just wonderful! If anyone wants books that are so well-written, try these. The Kindle is such a wonderful gadget! Why hasn't it been around years before? My bookshelves wouldn't be so packed!!

Nine stories Aug. 9 2012
By Damaskcat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a collection of nine short stories, one of which does not feature Miss Marple. I always think crime short stories must be one of the most difficult genres to write as there is not space to develop character or show a police investigation.

These stories make use of someone telling a story - often to Miss Marple. In one case it is her doctor who writes a story and gives it to her to cheer her up when she's feeling down. Naturally she works out what has happened.

I enjoyed all these stories and was particularly taken with `The Dressmaker's Doll', which is really quite spooky and the reader gets a real sense of the possibly evil propensities of the doll concerned. I also liked the last story in the collection - `Greenshaw's Folly' which features a particularly ingenious murder.

Love agatha, it's not one to focus on the gore so much as the who, why, and the psychology of the characters.
