I only needed to read one book of Her Majesty, Queen of Crime, to find my true Love. Her Novels.

That book would be Endless Night. Her Ideas, And more importantly, Her Characters, Are so very Gothic. My Favorite.. Sanatonix

And Lately, I'm reading Her Majesty's Destination Unknown (AKA So Many Steps To Death.) Lookin' Gothic. Yay!

And Yes I do call her Queen. & I do say Gothic.. A lot. (What! I happn to like Gothic.)

Her Book are A.M.A.Z.I.N. As in.

A Mazing Awe-inspiring Zip-coded Icy Novels. ( RHQ's (Random Hala Questions): Why Did I leave out the G?)

My Favorite, Would be the one I read.
Staring on my Recomandation List. and Second on my Favorite List (Second only to 'If I Should Speak')

Would be, As I mentioned Earlier, Endless Night.

Since I didn't read many Agatha C. Books, I'll tell how I distinguished it enough, for it to become the second on my All Time Favorite Book List. And the Best On my Mystery List.

It was Very Gothic (*Which wasn't common for me before.) And Sanatonix was An amazing Character.

You didn't Open this If you hate or love Agatha C. If you love her then Answer that question. And If you hate Her. Then State your opinions. I like different Opinions.

And If Your Curious.. Then Your Invited to Read.

Shrewdly (As Nobody Sincere over here) Hala.

More than her novels I love most of Agatha Christie's dramas;I've read & re-read most of themWink My all time favorite is "Witness for the Prosecution" which is the very first of her writings that I read & which I found to be absolutely brilliant!Thumbs UpThumbs UpThumbs Up

Some of my other favorite Agatha Christie Dramas are:
 
1.) Go Back for MurderThumbs UpThumbs Up
 
2.) Appointment with DeathThumbs UpThumbs Up
 
3.) The Hollow
 
4.) Towards Zero
 
Some Agatha ChristieNovels that I enjoyed are:
 
1.) Hercule Poirot's Christmas
 
2.) The Murder of Roger AckroydThumbs UpThumbs UpThumbs Up
 
3.) The Curtain:Poirot's Last Case
 
4.) The Mysterious Affair at Styles
 
5.) Why Didn't They Ask Evans?
 
However I've also found that some of her books can be kind of repetitive.Anyway,I would appreciate it if other Christie fans here could recommend any of her other books that they've enjoyedBig smile

I've read many of her books and pretty much enjoyed them all.

The top favorites on my list include:Endless Night

Why didn't they ask Evans?

They came to Baghdad

Then there were none.
