Just what it says. It includes very full summaries of all Christie's writings (jncluding plays and short stories as well as novels) and incidental articles of a variety of topics. To me the summaries are more useful than the incidentals.It discusses the movie versions of many of her books, with pictures of actors ad actresses etc. ( )

I've had this for ages and completely forgot about it for years, but it's still very useful to have as a reference. I marked the books I've read, just to help me keep track. I'm very happy to have rediscovered it on my bookshelf! ( )

A mishmash of items about Agatha Christie, but not any of her writings...small font makes it difficult to read at night, and heavy size makes it not for bathtubs. As an armchair companion maybe, but it's much more a reference, browser book than one to read it cover- to- cover. ( )

An essential guide to all of Agatha's books. There are neat little anecdotes as well as information on the various movies made from her books. I love reading the corresponding essay to whichever book I’ve just finished. There are also crossword puzzles and word searches in it! A really fun book. ( )

Preface:  To Agatha Christie fans it seems like a long time since were able to hover together in mutual suspense over a new Christie mystery.
