AGATHA CHRISTIE, MY CROCHET COMPANION

Updated: Aug 3, 2023

I'm a fan of Agatha Christie! I love the characters Miss Maple and Hercule Poirot, the plots that involve us, and the fabulous settings where the stories unfold that go from exotic to traditional English countryside gardens. I've lost count of the times I've watched TV series and movies, from the oldest to the most recent, and I'm always on the lookout for new versions.


At the moment, I am reading her autobiography, and I am fascinated by the woman Agatha Christie, with a strong and pragmatic spirit and a life full of adventures and travels.

Although I love to read and have already read many of her books, recently, I tend to lean on audiobooks to keep me company while I'm crocheting. I think it happens with a lot of us knitters and crocheters. We have the dilemma of balancing reading time with our projects. But my relationship with audiobooks is not always peaceful! I have to choose the narrator very well. The tone of the voice and its interpretation are of paramount importance.


Thankfully, the offer of audiobooks is endless, and with so many stories, we always have the right audiobook for the project in our hands, our current mood, or even the right weather and season!


If the same happens to you, go straight to "The Home of Agatha Christie" website, and you will find several divinely narrated audiobooks by Kenneth Branagh. You all find loads of information, articles, the latest Agatha Christie-related news, an online shop filled with board games, stationery, special edition books, and everything for a fan! And if you like reading challenges, sign up for the Read Christie 2023 Challenge.


I created my own reading challenge. Inspired by reading her autobiography and determined not to miss any of her work, I made my to-be-read book list. I organized it chronologically, and I'll start with "The Mysterious Affair at Styles", which was released in 1920 and introduced a Belgian refugee, a retired police officer named Hercule Poirot.


I can already feel my "little gray cells" getting happy!
