My reading History

I have always been a fan of reading mystery novels, in particular books by Agatha Christie.

There are two series, but I preferred reading the books that involved a woman named Ms Marples.
She was an interesting character because she was so nosey, however she had a knack of solving difficult crimes because she was so wise and had a sixth sense when it came to understanding people`s personality and motives.

The stories did not contain graphic violence, but were very enjoyable.
Once I started reading a book, I couldn’t put it down. I quickly finished the various series.

The last book was named "The Devil Under The Sun", usually I buy paper backs, but because this was her last book I decided to buy the hard back edition.

I was reminded of her books when I met a teacher recently who grew up near her home town.
It bought back memories for me, and some day I would like to visit England to experience the setting of her novels.
