Favorite Christie Novels

Murder on the Orient Express is released in US theaters today. I just started reading Agatha Christie and I am just discovering what a wonderful and amazing writer she is. She is the master at misdirection and providing surprising twists. No wonder she is called “The Queen of Mystery”.

So, in honor of the release of the movie, here is a list of my favorite Christie novels or short stories (so far). New to Christie? Pick one of these and you’ll fall in love with her books as well.

  • A Murder Is Announced – What happens when you find a murder announced in a newspaper? Don’t worry. Miss Marple is on the case!
  • 4:50 from Paddington – Probably my least favorite Miss Marple story but still enjoyable. Really focuses on how are our eyes can deceive us.
  • The Body in the Library  – I feel Miss Marple is at her best in this one. The twists and turns are at its highest.
  • The Moving Finger – Although Miss Marple didn’t appear towards the end of the book, the change of narrator showed me of how great Chrisite is at storytelling.
  • They Do It With Mirrors – Full of red herrings. It really proved to me that she was master of them.

Books I Plan on Reading:

Crooked House

Why Didn’t They Ask Evans?

A Pocket Full of Rye

Ordeal by Innocence
