    About Agatha Christie


    1. Agatha Christie also wrote romance novels under the pseudonym Mary Westmacott, and was occasionally published under the name Agatha Christie Mallowan.Agatha Christie is the best selling author of all time She wrote eighty crime novels and story collections, fourteen plays, and several other books Her books have sold roughly four billion copies and have been translated into 45 languages She is the creator of the two most enduring figures in crime literature Hercule Poirot and Miss Jane Marple and author of The Mousetrap, the longest running play in the history of modern theatre Agatha Mary Clarissa Miller was born in Torquay, Devon, England, U.K as the youngest of three The Millers had two other children Margaret Frary Miller 1879 1950 , called Madge, who was eleven years Agatha s senior, and Louis Montant Miller 1880 1929 , called Monty, ten years older than Agatha During the First World War, she worked at a hospital as a nurse later working at a hospital pharmacy, a job that influenced her work, as many of the murders in her books are carried out with poison.On Christmas Eve 1914 Agatha married Archibald Christie, an aviator in the Royal Flying Corps The couple had one daughter, Rosalind Hicks They divorced in 1928, two years after Christie discovered her husband was having an affair.Her first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, came out in 1920 During this marriage, Agatha published six novels, a collection of short stories, and a number of short stories in magazines.In late 1926, Agatha s husband, Archie, revealed that he was in love with another woman, Nancy Neele, and wanted a divorce On 8 December 1926 the couple quarreled, and Archie Christie left their house Styles in Sunningdale, Berkshire, to spend the weekend with his mistress at Godalming, Surrey That same evening Agatha disappeared from her home, leaving behind a letter for her secretary saying that she was going to Yorkshire Her disappearance caused an outcry from the public, many of whom were admirers of her novels Despite a massive manhunt, she was not found for eleven days.In 1930, Christie married archaeologist Max Mallowan Sir Max from 1968 after joining him in an archaeological dig Their marriage was especially happy in the early years and remained so until Christie s death in 1976 In 1977, Mallowan married his longtime associate, Barbara Parker.Christie frequently used familiar settings for her stories Christie s travels with Mallowan contributed background to several of her novels set in the Middle East Other novels such as And Then There Were None were set in and around Torquay, where she was born Christie s 1934 novel Murder on the Orient Express was written in the Hotel Pera Palace in Istanbul, Turkey, the southern terminus of the railway The hotel maintains Christie s room as a memorial to the author The Greenway Estate in Devon, acquired by the couple as a summer residence in 1938, is now in the care of the National Trust.Christie often stayed at Abney Hall in Cheshire, which was owned by her brother in law, James Watts She based at least two of her stories on the hall the short story The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding, which is in the story collection of the same name, and the novel After the Funeral Abney became Agatha s greatest inspiration for country house life, with all the servants and grandeur which have been woven into her plots.During the Second World War, Christie worked in the pharmacy at University College Hospital of University College, London, where she acquired a knowledge of poisons that she put to good use in her post war crime novels To honour her many literary works, she was appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire in the 1956 New Year Honours The next year, she became the President of the Detection Club In the 1971 New Year Honours she was promoted Dame Commande

    1. This novella is the first draft or I should say version , since only later Christie thought to make a novel out of it of the Poirot novel Dead Man s Folly, which I read years ago and which I remember as one of the very few Poirot cases whose solution I didn t exactly appreciated I ve always felt as if, with the couple of factual indications that he actually had, Poirot concocted a fantabulous and a little far fetched, though very suggestive, solution that accidentally proved to be the right one [...]

    3. For reasons I won t go into, Dame Agatha Christie was unable to publish this tale in its original novella format and it eventually became the novel Dead Man s Folly The story suffers not at all for its abbreviated form, and, whether you ve already enjoyed Dead Man s Folly, as I have, or you re coming to the mystery with fresh eyes, you should like it very much.Ariadne Oliver, Christie s ditzy, tongue in cheek alter ego, imperiously summons Hercule Poirot to Greenshore House, purchased by the unp [...]

    4. This novella was originally written for publication in a magazine, but, astonishing as it sounds, could not find a home due to the odd length neither a short story or a novel Agatha Christie had written it in order to raise money for a new stained glass window at the church she worshipped at, but decided to write a new story with a similar title featuring Miss Marple she used a similar title as she wanted the story to reflect the home she purchased in 1938 and loved dearly Thankfully, she felt t [...]

    6. Adorable, and as always Poirot always reconstructs the crime perfectly in his head before you ve even had time to familiarise yourself with the suspects then helpfully describes it to his fascinated readers Lovely little story, and all Christie s proceeds went to repairing a stained glass window

    7. Tamat dalam sekali baca Oh, how I miss her books Buku ini adalah novella yang kemudian dikembangkan nantinya menjadi novel dengan judul Dead Man s Folly edisi Indonesianya adalah Kubur Berkubah.Tidak terlalu banyak perbedaan antara Greenshore s Folly dengan cerita novel Dead Man s Folly yang sudah saya baca belasan tahun yang lalu, bahkan nama tokoh tokohnyapun hampir sama semuanya, tapi nama Greenshore menjadi Nasse House di novel Dan jalan cerita juga menjadi jauh lebih singkat.Karena novella [...]

    8. Noioso e poco convincente Nella prima meta non succede nulla, nella second met Poirot risolve il mistero semplicemente con un dialogo in cui spiega tutto Nessuna indagine, nessun ragionamento, nessuna analisi simpatico solo per vedere il modo di ragionare e di creare una storia della Christie Inizia bene con una buona idea ma poi si perde troppo.

    10. This novella featuring Hercule Poirot and Mrs Ariadne Oliver has an interesting history It was written originally to fund a stained glass window in the author s local church Unfortunately it did not sell partly because it is neither a novel or a short story Eventually Christie wrote a Miss Marple short story with a similar title to fund the window and developed the novella into a full length novel which was later published under the title of Dead Man s Folly.Having recently read and enjoyed Dead [...]

    11. I really like Ariadne Oliver and Christie when she s succinct She clearly borrowed from or was paying homage to Cold Comfort Farm with this one though, right Always be Folliats at Greenshore I kept waiting for someone to say they d saw something nasty at the boathouse.

    12. Hercule Poirot and the Greenshore Folly is only interesting because of its history Christie originally wrote this novella, but could not find a publisher The problem appeared to be that it was neither short enough to be published as short stories nor long enough to be published as a novel Ultimately, Christie had to rewrite it and finally published it under the name Dead Man s Folly.The story is the same as the novel George Stubbs has purchased an old mansion from an old lady, Amy Folliatt His w [...]

    13. Ik twijfel tussen 2 en 3 sterren Dit was was het minste boek van Christie dat ik tot nu toe gelezen heb Het is net iets meer dan een novelle en in plaats van show, don t tell werd de clou voor een groot gedeelte simpelweg verteld aan het eind van het boek En dat terwijl juist het zelf kunnen bedenken wie het gedaan zou kunnen hebben het leuke is aan het lezen van een detective.

    14. Robbie s Review I must confess I haven t read one of Agatha Christie s books in a long time They were a passion of mine at one time and I methodically read through each of the Hercule Poirot and Jane Marple books because I was fascinated by the intricacy of the author s plots When I was offered the opportunity to read and review Hercule Poirot and the Greenshore Folly, I was reminded of how much I love M Poirot and his facile mind.Summoned urgently by his friend novelist Ariadne Oliver, M Poirot [...]

    17. Finished this book in one day, or should I say in one sitting The story is kind of reminds me with story that I ever read in detective manga It s about a murder play that turn to be the real murder mystery The trick and the weapon is not really impressive I think the good point about the story is the motive Also the background of every character I enjoy this story but not really surprised with the conclusion of the case.

    18. This was the shortest of the Christie books that I have read it only took a couple of hours to finish it Perhaps that is why I didn t enjoy it as much as the others It felt fairly rushed and even after I found out who the killer was, I couldn t understand how Poirot deduced it This was the original version of the story written for a church fundraiser but it didn t do well so it was later expanded It s possible the expanded version may have contained detail that would have made the ending of a [...]

    22. N o posso dizer que tenha sido a hist ria mais cativante que j li da autora, mas vale pela atmosfera da leitura, a escrita contagiante e pelo texto final, escrito por John Curran, que permite um vislumbre do processo criativo da rainha do crime.

    26. I am beginning to wonder , that Agatha Christie must be a criminal to write such mind boggling crimes.The story revolves around a Murder Hunt which is staged by some one as a purpose of entertainment A Novelist friend of Poirot is asked to design the game A very perfect stage for creating a real Murder under the backdrop of game, where nothing can go wrong was created.The Only mistake to the prefect Act was inviting a perfect man Poirot to give away the prize and nothing can escape eyes of the G [...]

    27. So apparently Agatha Christie likes stained glass windows She assigned the rights to this novella to her local church in order to fund such a project However when the church couldn t find an interested buyer too short to be a novel and too long to be a short story for a magazine , she shelved the novella and wrote them a Miss Marple short story instead She then expanded the novella into what would become Dead Man s Folly and the original novella went unpublished And here it is I remember enough [...]

    28. I really thought this book was a separate book A real novel which consist than 30.000 words, since the pages count looks legit I didn t try to find about this book before buying it What I know was, the back cover said about Christie s unpublished work after 60 years I thought it was something like wow, a long lost work Must be precious It is, but well, I think I do regret a little for buying it Because this was a novella, not a novel.More on sulurabu.wordpress 2018 0

    29. My Mum bought me a beautiful hardcover copy of this from the gift shop at Greenway, Agatha Christie s holiday home and the setting for this little story It was my first Christie and I enjoyed being taken through the rolling hills of Devon where I currently live and onto the lawns of the lovely old manor house It felt a little quick paced and a little simplistic but it was an enjoyable short read.

    30. Saya pikir ini cerita baru yang belum pernah ada sama sekali Ternyata bentuk novella dari Dead Man s Folly yang sudah pernah dibaca entah berapa puluh tahun berselang.Bukti bahwa cerita Agatha Christie memang menarik sebelum setengah jalan saya masih ingat betul di mana letak misteri Greenshore Folly.
