As per a very good question from Beth in response to my tweet yesterday about reading Dame Agatha Christie, I've put together this little survey.
Which are your favorite Agathe Christie books/detectives AND WHY...
A. Hercule Poirot
B. Miss Marple
C. Tommy and Tuppence Beresford
D. Parker Pyne
E. Harley Quin
F. I don't have a favorite listed here, I prefer the stand-alone ones. (Please provide an example.)
G. I don't know who Agatha Christie is OR I know who she is but I've never read her. (Shame on you, sir! Shame, I say!)
As for me: My favorite detective is Parker Pyne. He's a fascinating man who specializes in happiness. He knows exactly what people need, and has a vast network of connections to make it happen. Most of his short stories are found in the book: Parker Pyne Investigates
DISCLAIMER: My absolute favorite Christie character is Adriane Oliver the writer. She's hilarious, and makes a show in several books. Sadly, though, she's never considered a main character and never makes a right guess.
All right, YOUR TURN!!!!
Who's your favorite?
