What a stupid Idea.
I am not Able to Attend the Festival for reasons I don't wish to go into here Secondly I don't wish to read the Book which I don't approve of, It might be brilliant AS A BOOK I am not saying it isn't just that I don't believe it should ever have been Written because Agatha Christie Killed off Poirot and Agatha Christie is the only person who should in my view Authorize the Writing by someone else of a Book with Poirot, I have stated over and over again that if Sophie had chosen another Character Miss Marple or Bundle or Battle for instance to have as the lead Character I would applaud the idea but I do not want to waste my time reading a book I Fundamentally disagree with, If you enjoyed it I am very pleased fpr you but I will not ever read it or any others the Writer Writes featuring Poirot, I dpn't quite understand your last point If Agatha Christie had written a book and Harper Collins had Published after of course I would read it Curtain was published years after it was written wasn't it? And I have read that.
I have just purchased a
full ticket to the Agatha Christie Birthday Celebrations on 15th September in
Torquay. Part of the programme will be Sophie Hannah reading an extract from
the new Poirot Novel Closed Casket, which I am looking forward to.
I was at
an Agatha Christie conference on 20th June, held at Exeter University,
where Sophie was a Keynote speaker, and she read a chapter from the
new book. Poirot again teams up with Edward Catchpool, but there is an
intriguing murderer 'that challenges Poirot's theories'. Sophie had a copy of
the American paperback with her, from which she read the extract and it
certainly captivated the audience and there were many questions from the
enthusiastic fans. Can't wait to read it on 6th September.
