i loved sleeping murder, miss marple's last story...it had suspense, intrigue, and enough miss marple quirkiness to make it interesting...i have read it several times and each time find something new to like about it...other than her plots, her dialogues and characterizations and the reflections of society/timeperiods are always fascinating. i loved poirot, but enjoyed miss marple because she was a surprise, she was not supposed to be a detective like poirot was and her old lady fussish ways were a wonderful foil for a brilliant mind. i was an investigator once in my career, and i considered reading miss marple for many years in my youth to be part of my training: a mixture of miss marple, columbo, and marilyn monroe...and a lot of people were very surprised.

Hi Dodo, I enjoyed reading Agatha Christie's books since young. Among her books, my favorites are the short story collection she wrote - like Miss Marple and Thirteen Problems, Miss Marple Final cases, Poirot Investigates, Poirot's Early Cases and a few more that I can't remember.

I'm finishing Agatha Christie's Murder in Restrospect this week. So far, I haven't identified a favorite because all of her books are Superb. It's hard to put them down. Like you, I also admire her Miss Marple books and of course, Hercule Poirot's cases.

I'm a big fan of Hercule Poirot. My favorite Agatha Christie's book are Murder On The Orient Express, Hickory Dickory Dock and The Big Four. She is the greatest criminal writer of all time!!

I think she is as well. I think that she is the greatest criminal writer of all time. Otherwise, she probably wouldn't have been named the Queen of Crime.

I grew up on Enid Blyton's Five series, and then Nancy Drew, Perry Mason, and Agatha Christie. Its a pity other people cannot catch our attention the way these characters did. May be I am too old. :-) I like all the stories that Agatha Christie wrote (the ones that I read), but I guess The Curtain deserves a mention.

I have read her books for many years and I liked all of them. Some of the ones I liked the best are Murder On The Orient Express,A Pocket Full of Rye, The Witness For The Prosecution, The Mystery Of The Blue Jar and many more of her books and short stories. I also read Black Coffee Hercule Poirot Novel.

Here best book was 'then there where none' .I have read almost all her books.I like Poirot a lot.I think abc murders was the one which had a twist in the tale.According to critics 'crooked house' was her best.
