I know opinions vary widely but I have been a fan of Agatha Christie's since grade seven when my english teacher -- one of my favorite teachers -- assigned us Christie's "The Murder of Roger Ackroyd," to read -- and we got to watch the movie! It was great fun -- as a class we each had to try and guess who had committed the murder -- and I've loved her books ever since.
Ever time I read one of her books I asked myself, "How did she do it? What was her secret, why are her books -- good though they are -- so popular?" I think I must have read each of her books many times and one thing I noticed is that -- at least in her Miss Marple books -- she tends to include a romance. Come to think of it, she does this often with the Poirot books as well.
I find that interesting.
