Product Description

Review

'When it all becomes clear as day, the reader can only say, "Now why didn't I think of that?" But he never does. Miss Christie at her best.' Springfield Republican

About the Author

Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890 and became, quite simply, the best-selling novelist in history. Her first novel, ‘The Mysterious Affair at Styles’, written towards the end of the First World War, introduced us to Hercule Poirot, who was to become the most popular detective in crime fiction since Sherlock Holmes. She is known throughout the world as the Queen of Crime. Her books have sold over a billion copies in the English language and another billion in 44 foreign languages. She is the author of 80 crime novels and short story collections, 19 plays, and six novels under the name of Mary Westmacott and saw her work translated into more languages than Shakespeare. Her enduring success, enhanced by many film and TV adaptations, is a tribute to the timeless appeal of her characters and the unequalled ingenuity of the plots.

HASH(0x9d48e564) out of 5 stars Wonderful Miss Marple short stories Jan. 7 2006
By Shirley 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.

HASH(0x9d48e5b8) out of 5 stars 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!!

HASH(0x9d48e894) out of 5 stars 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.

HASH(0x9d48eda4) out of 5 stars A Fantastic Collection of Mysteries! Aug. 4 2014
By Lynn Worton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a fantastic collection of Miss Marple tales! I loved them!

I downloaded this set of six Miss Marple stories in audiobook for my mom, so it would give her something to occupy her time while recuperating; she had been very ill in hospital at the time. I decided to listen to it myself once she had recovered, because I love Agatha Christie's mystery books too.

This audiobook was narrated by one of the best actresses (I feel) to have portrayed Miss Marple, Dame Joan Hickson. Her narration of six of the stories brought them to life for me. And, as she also acted in some of them on TV as serial episodes, I could picture them with ease.

The stories in this collection are:
The man found dying in the church sanctuary
The puzzle of Uncle Henry's hidden legacy
The baffling mystery of the stabbing of Mrs Rhodes
The question of the murderer with the tape-measure
The case of Miss Skinner's Maid
The curious conduct of the caretaker
There are also two bonus stories that were narrated very well by another lady, which were not Miss Marple mysteries. They were called 'The Dressmaker’s Doll’ and ‘In a Glass Darkly’.

Each one of these stories was very entertaining. I love reading mysteries, and Agatha Christie, in my opinion, wrote some of the best detective novels of her day. Her two most well known characters, Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot, have entertained readers like me for many years. However, I don't think these were her best stories. Although Joan Hickson did a remarkable job in telling these tales, Agatha Christie seemed to have had rushed a couple of them; the plots were not as solid as her earlier pieces. I will say that The Dressmaker's Doll was extremely spooky, and more like a ghost story than a mystery. Nevertheless, it was a pleasure to listen to all of the stories in this collection. I will be revisiting them again, I am sure!

I highly recommend this book if you love classic mystery or thriller genres. - Lynn Worton
