I am always reading some sort of book and I have read a few Agatha Christie books - "Murder on the Orient Express", "Death on the Nile" and "A Pocket Full of Rye". I enjoyed them all

I love Agatha Christie, yesterday I finished Cards on the Table, and I liked it very much. My favourite book is "And Then There Were None", favourite characters- Poirot and Jane Marple

I like "And Then There Were None" too. And of course "Murder of Roger Ackroyd".

Can't pick between the two.

I havent read "Cards on the table" but I suspect I would like it very much. Must get hold of it soon.

Make that three.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

They changed the name of that book to Ten Little Indians quite a long time ago. They did here anyway.

"And then there were none" is terrific - I forgot about the world while reading it. The real masterpiece

There is only one Miss Marple, that's Margaret Rutherford. But I don't think you (Agatha Christie ) wrote those stories.

Murder most foul
Murder ahoy
Murder at the gallop
Murder most horrid
