When we mention a whodunit we automatically think of Agatha Christie .
No fine technologies , no sexual descriptions , no gory violence . Can such books sell ?
You BET . This was the woman who PROVED that they CAN and by the millions .
Dame Agatha Christie deserves a standing applause by us for having that unique place in literature ..........she carved a niche for herself that no one else could .
In fact , Agatha Christie mentioned this in all her books ..........that for a book to be exciting , sex , unnecessary violence and gore is not needed . She felt it 'vulgarizes' the book . A lady every inch the way , her ladylike books enthralled the most intelligent of men .
Shuddering at the cheap fascination for blood , gore and sex , Agatha Christie dismissed it as dramatic and vulgar .
I bow before this unique personality whom I adored and constantly re read whenever I am having a black day . They never fail to perk me up .
Let us discuss her books , Her characters .............Hercule Poirot , Jane Marple , Mr Quinn , Tommy and Tuppence Beresford , Mr Robinson .............Let us discuss this author and pay her a small tribute .
So Lets Start .
