I mean it‘s Miss Marple. Luckily most of these short stories don‘t show off the worst of Christie - the racism, xenophobia, homophobia, though a little of it creeps in now and then. But Miss Marple! I only wish there had been more of her and less of Poirot. I needed a little break, and these short stories served, as Christie might write, admirably.

... It is a very favourite place, that. There by the jasmine hedge. That is where the milkman asked Annie if he could put up the banns.”
β€œDash it all, Aunt Jane,” said Raymond, β€œ don‘t spoil all the romance. Joyce and I aren‘t like the milkman and Annie.”
β€œThat is where you make a mistake, dear,” said Miss Marple. β€œEverybody is very much alike, really. But fortunately, perhaps, they don‘t realize it.”

The colors on this cover are fantastic! Although I always like the novels better, Christie preferred Miss Marple in short story form and it's easy to see why in this charming collection. This contains the full text of The Tuesday Club Murders.

Wishing everyone a great #readathon tomorrow! I've had to miss both this year thanks to visits to see my family. I usually only see them about twice a year...what are the chances they'd both be readathon weekends?! 😫

Loved this book. If you‘re unfamiliar with the short story form, or you shy away from it, check this one out. For one, it‘s Agatha Christie. Two, it‘s the smoothest, palatable delivery of the form that I will now recommend to anyone who is looking to dive into it. Three, each story is fun from start to finish.

Some of my favourite. My edition of The Complete Miss Marple Short Stories from The Folio Society was a gift from my godmother (she‘s not really, but as good as), and it has illustrations by Andrew Davidson and introduction by Stella Duffy. If you ever get the chance, I highly recommend reading the introduction, it‘s almost as enjoyable as the short stories themselves!

Miss Marple is on the case. Actually she's on several. This is a collection of stories pulled from other books like the Tuesday Club, etc. Fun to visit with Miss Marple and see her take on things. Only clunker was looks like the name of her nephew Raymond's wife changed. (Joyce to Joan) But all in all fun visit.

Litsy has encouraged me to get back to Agatha Christie who I have not read in years. And my #FolioFreaks encourage me to buy more #FolioSociety books. (You are bad people, my Freaks). Here, two birds with one stone.
This cover was a bit of a surprise and showed up not matching the one @LeahBergen has posted beforeβ€”now I am torn which I like better!

hlgreenfield The folio editions are all so beautiful! I will need to get some someday! Agatha Christie is one of my favourites! I read about 90% of her books when I was about 15-16 and then never checked her books again. A re-read may be in order soon! 3y

HKGirl @hlgreenfield I read almost all of her books when I was that age too, and then didn't read them again for years. I'm now rediscovering them through audiobooks--you should try that! Hugh Fraser in particular is a wonderful narrator. 3y

hlgreenfield @HKGirl that actually sounds like a great idea. I don't really listen to audiobooks a lot, but I might give them a try since Agatha books do seem to be perfect to be listened to! And yes the edition is making me want to spend some money on books I already own πŸ˜‚ 3y

I started reading this tonight and it turns out I've read most of these stories, published in different collections. As with many short stories, some are more satisfying than others. The ones that were unfamiliar to me were a bit lackluster. I think I enjoy Christie's novels more, since some of these stories seemed like they could be expanded on more. Nevertheless, it's always fun to read about the unlikely spinster sleuth Miss Marple.

JazzFeathers I find that writing a mystery in a short story is so very difficult. It is a genre that expresses itself better in longer works, in my opinion 3y

Since then I have never laughed at people who use the word atmosphere. There is such a thing. There are certain places imbued and saturated with good and evil influences which can make their power felt.
