Which Was Your First Agatha Christie Book?

Μy first Agatha Christie book was 'The Crooked House' . It was a Agatha Christie classic. An old, rich man or woman is murdered and everyone around him has a motive and the opportunity. When I finished I was completely shocked because when I read it ************* (removed because of spoiler - apologies. Spoiler alert buttons to be introduced soon)  But 'The Crooked House' was only the start. I liked it and continued reading and reading... It is a year I am reading Agatha Christie and I have read almost the half she has written. Do you like the Greek cover for 'Crooked House'?

    Lol...I read my first Christie too long ago to remember...however I found an old copy of Cards on the Table in my house so I am going to guess that was my first.

    My first Agatha Christie book was Evil under the Sun. I love this book. I re-read it at least once a year. It's also a way to come back in time and remember the good moments that you had in your life. And, of course, it's a very good book.
  • My first Agatha Christie was The Murder Of Roger Ackroyd. I'm very glad I read it first, because it's one the very best. It enticed me to read more. Also it's also mentioned frequently in discussions about her work. If I hadn't read it sooner, I would have found out the ending.

    That Greek cover-  slight SPOILERS!! attrative, but if you haven't read it, does it give a little too much  emphasis on something crucial...

  • I was 12 when I read The Murder of Roger Ackroyd and was hooked.  I am now 58 and still absolutely love her original works and will read and re-read them forever.

    Mine was And then there were none as well, in French and I was 14. After that one, I read all her books ...

    Mine first Christie was 'The ABC Murders' and I enjoyed it from the first to the last page. The book was better than the TV adaptation, as always

    "Hallowe'en Party" and I read it in English. Then, several years later, I started buying a collection of her books in Bulgarian, and I read the first of the collection - "The ABC Murders". I was surprised by her style (at that time I did not remember how the storyline of "Hallowe'en Party" was). So, now I still think that "The ABC Murders" is a good starting point in Agatha's work.
    I am still to read "The Mysterious Affair At Styles", though.

    My first was Mistress McGinty's Dead (I hope I got the title in English right) I read it in highschool in Spanish and read as many novels I could get here in Ecuador. I hope I could read them all...
