Which Was Your First Agatha Christie Book?



  • My first was 'Crooked House'. I thought it was a good book to start at, and it didn't disappoint me at all. It will be a book that I will always re-read.

    My first book was "The Adventure Of The Christmas Pudding". I picked it from the library along with "The Murder Of Roger Ackroyd". And it was a great start for me to dive into A. Christie's world :)

    My first Agatha Christie book was A Murder Is Announced and it has always been my favourite.My first Poirot was Dead Mans Folly and that has always been my favourite.
  • My first book was 4.50 from Paddington, not one of my favourites but I enjoyed it enough to try Death on the Nile which got me hooked.

    I must have read And Then There Were None when I was about 11 or so... I still remember being slightly freaked out towards the end - I realize now that Parental Advisory was not part of my up-bringing - well, nobody ever heard of it back then. Not that long ago, anyway!
    I did a quick search on wikipedia, looks like PA started in USA in 1985 first in music, was used for "explicit lyrics.
    Well, that's about when I read my first Christie.
    I still have that old copy of And Then There Were None and whenever I pick it up I still get the same thrilling-chilly shiver down my spine!

    My first book was FIVE LITTLE PIGS, I was 16 then & had finished the entire Enid Blyton's Famous Five & Secret Seven collection , Started reading Alfred Hitchcock's three investigators & then tried Agatha Christie's Five little pigs (which was a gift from my brother) got hooked since. I followed it up with 4:50 for Paddy. Got so excited with the locations & stations . The plot was OK. But since then more than the plot I look out for the characters, locations (inside Britain) & Foods! High tea any one? :)

  • My first book was Christmas of Poirot,im my language called O natal de Poirot
