DONE A WONDERFUL JOB ORGANISING THEa wonderful job organising the to give a picture of how many well loved books developed They grew in all sorts of ways From a character From a setting From and object All sorts of things changed along the way and very often the murderer and their motive wasn t settled on until the very last moment He is clearly very knowledgable and while he clearly loves Mrs Christie s work he is uite prepared to step back a little and be objectiveThere are so many wonderful little facts Gems are scattered throughout the book Cases transferred between Poirot Miss Marple and Parker Pyne I d forgotten him Ideas picked up dropped and then sometimes picked up again for another story Characters changing names and volving It really is fascinatingOf course plot points and killers identities are given away but titles discussed are listed at the start of Wrathful Chaos: Five Books of Satanic Philosophy each themed section and at the start ofach piece about a specific book Which seems reasonable to meAnd so I find myself reminded of books I d uite forgotten Happily recalling others noting a few that I don t think I ve read yet I want to read and re read very single one And then I want to look again at what this book had to say I m definitely going to need a copy of my own I am a huge fan of Agatha Christie s work and have finally found the time to sit down and read both this and the companion piece by the same author Murder in the Making I realise I m a bit late to the party but believe me it s a party worth attendingI njoyed this book but probably only did so because I ve read all of Christie s works and I xpected it to be what it is a decoding of the author s diaries Mr Curran has obviously put his passion for Christie s work to good use dedicating himself to helping those of us not fortunate nough to have access to the diaries themselves the ability to get inside the head of one of the people who created the form of what we know today as the classic murder mystery For those who have yet to Humanism: The Greek Ideal and its Survival explore all the worlds created by Christie there are spoiler alerts A thoroughly researched book with annlightening perspective written well by an obvious Love 2.0 (A Cates Brothers Book, enthusiast A great book detailing how Agatha Christie plotted her many booksAgatha Christie was a gifted writer who kept her ideas and some of her plot development in notebooks These are the notebooks that the writer if this book John Curran has set before us I am amazed at how an idea that Christie had would not produce the actual story for many years It just shows how great Agatha Christie was i I m giving up I had problems with the format interupted narrative for apparently unrelated bits of varying length and I don t have much faith in the deconstruction of the mostly very Rnou óbvia Neste livrole desvenda os grandes segredos da Rainha do Crime as origens dos seus carismáticos detectives The Fix enigmas surpreendentes nredos alternativos cenas liminadas até mesmo planos para livros ue não chegou a screver A investigação de John Curran revela uma grande uantidade de material nunca antes publicado Desire in Seven Voices e inclui duas histórias completamente inéditas O Incidente da Bola do Cão A Captura de Cérbe.

HABITS SHE HAD TERRIBLE HANDWRITING MOSTshe had terrible handwriting most her life ironically getting better as she aged What s up with that made lists of scenes and rearranged them to suit herself and often did not know who the murderer would be when she began to plot the book Interesting tidbits but not worth trudging through the book to learn such trivia The two short stories were actually variations of published stories One was mildly interesting as it was based on Hitler and had him renouncing Nazism and finding God Otherwise not much lse to recommend it Sadly disappointed If you like and are well read in Agatha Christie you will like this book which delves into the great author s working notebooks and comes up with uotes of scene and character lists ideas and workings out of plot detailsThe best parts are where the notebooks reveal how many ways Agatha Christie could have worked out a particular plot you come away with a glimpse into a truly astonishing level of creativity and ability to vary details to make a set of different stories out of the very same set of starting points She was a genius in my opinion and this book reveals that through the xtensive uoting of her own materialAnother great thing is that there are two complete Poirot short stories never before published they are variations on two stories that were published they illustrate perfectly the point about how she could write totally different stories using the same materials as in other stories she had createdHowever I didn t agree with the authoreditor s assessment of some of her novels and I felt that he could have left out his critical judgment of whether her books were strong or weak or whatever he thought Some of his judgments that certain details were wrong to have been included were off I thought Some I agreed with I could have done without a lot of the critical part of the writing In August 1948 Penguin Books made publishing history when they issued one million Agatha Christie novels on the same day 100000 copies of The Casa Mono Cookbook each This venture was such a success that it was repeated five years later That s an awful lot of books And how many have been sold and borrowed since then How many films How many television dramatisations Amazing numbersYou would think thatverything to be said had been said by now But no This lovely

Much too much trivia Do you care what was on the covers of the notebooks Christie used ReallyIt was interesting to have a look into her creative process but a shorter book would have done that ven betterSpecializing in Christie s works for a long time Curran has acuired not only the minute knowledge of them all but also a staggering confidence that his critical opinion is the gospel truth which did feel uncomfortable in certain placesI ve read Christie s autobiography and some other stuff she wrote about herself and you can really count any novel featuring Ariadne Oliver and on the whole I d say she would have assigned less importance to her books and notes than Curran did This book is intended to be read by Agatha Christie fans I thought I was a fan but after reading this book I realize I must not be a big nough fan I read her autobiography and njoyed it I read a majority of her books and love them I read this book and was darn near bored to tears An njoyable book but you obviously have to like the books plays of Agatha Christie I found the book a bit repetitive in places and at times I felt that the book assumed that you knew the works of Agatha Christie in depth So it may say that AC changed the nding of such and such a book so that she didn t do it and he did instead but unless you know the books you have no idea who he or she is So it is assuming that you know than the average reader probably wouldTwo thirds of the way through I began skipping sections Overall it was an int I have to thank my obsession and love for booksthe pleasure I get from reading to Agatha Christie At the age of seven years I was receiving books as present Agatha Christie
