Agatha Christie, the author and the woman, is an enigma. Whether it is your first encounter with her books, or you are a confirmed fan, several questions pop into your mind :
What is the appeal of Agatha Christie?
It is a hundred years since her first novel was published yet her popularity keeps growing. What is the appeal?
Why did her play The Mousetrap become the longest running in history?
Where did Agatha herself go when she disappeared for several days? Was this a publicity stunt (as some people claimed) or some deep personal angst?
I intend reading and writing more about Agatha Christie. In doing so I will attempt to uncover the answers to some of these questions. You can expect to see more posts on this topic on my blog.
