First of all, a reminder that this month book club meets on November 17, 2018, at Arden Dimick at 10:30AM. We will have biscuits, of course, as one does. Our book this month was The 4:50 to Paddington by Agatha Christie.
This month’s read was a quick one. If you’d like to supplement your reading, here are some suggestions:
Agatha Christie Novels
Murder on the Orient Express
Yep, the one on the train. One of many set on trains, actually.
Death on the Nile
A personal favorite because Poirot is both stern and compassionate.
Murder of Roger Ackroyd
A trope maker.
And Then There Were None
Most Christie mysteries are interesting, not scary, but this one is terrifying.
Agatha Christie Autobiography and Biography
The Grand Tour: Around the World With the Queen of Mystery, by Agatha Christie, ed. by Matthew Prichard
A fun collection of notes, journal entries, and letters home from a trip Agatha took around the world with her husband. She became one of the first English people to surf standing up and became quite good at it.
Agatha Christie: A Secret Life by Laura Thompson
I had so many problems with this biography, but it is engrossing despite its flaws.
