However, September 15th marked the 120th birthday of the Queen of Murder Mystery: Agatha Christie. And I feel terrible that I missed it!
I used to be a huge Agatha Christie fan. Apparently, I’m not alone since I’ve learned that more than 2 billion of her books have been sold and they are published in more than 45 languages worldwide. Christie’s And Then There Were None (also published as Ten Little Indians) was probably one of my first “favorite” books. I loved the twist ending, which I can’t really remember anymore. Shortly thereafter my mom had to take me to the library to get more and more Christie books. I was especially into the Hercule Poirot stories and very likely read them all.
So thank you Agatha Christie for getting me sucked into murder mysteries. I apologize for missing the birthday, but fortunately it seems Google remembered. Their homepage in the UK featured this cute doodle:
