CHARACTERS ↠ Agatha Christie's Secret Notebooks Em 1976 aos oitenta e cinco anos de idade morria Agatha Christie a escritora mais famosa do mundo A sua obra estava publicada em mais de cem países e os seus livros haviam vendido cerca de dois mil milhões de exemplares Agatha Christie conseguira o impossível desde a década de 1920 ue escrevia mais de um livro por ano e todos eles eram incríveis bestsellers mundiais A sua imaginação prodigiosa bem como o seu alucinante ritm. In August 1948 Penguin Books made publishing history when they issued one million Agatha Christie novels on the same day 100000 copies of each This venture was such a success that it was repeated five years later That s an awful lot of books And how many have been sold and borrowed since then How many films How many television dramatisations Amazing numbersYou would think that everything to be said had been said by now But no This lovely book offers something newA few years ago Agatha Christie s heirs decided to pass The Greenaway her riverside home in south Devon to the National Trust When the Trust started to renovate the property its former owners notebooks came to light Seventy three of themNot orderly notebooks but notebooks that were grabbed when the need to write anything down arose Shopping lists Character lists Story ideas Random thoughts There s an awful lot there but not everything Many works are unmentioned So presumably Mrs Christie lost notebooks and wrote things on the backs of envelopes like the rest of usJohn Curran has done a wonderful job of organising the material to give a picture of how many well loved books developed They grew in all sorts of ways From a character From a setting From and object All sorts of things changed along the way and very often the murderer and their motive wasn t settled on until the very last moment He is clearly very knowledgable and while he clearly loves Mrs Christie s work he is uite prepared to step back a little and be objectiveThere are so many wonderful little facts Gems are scattered throughout the book Cases transferred between Poirot Miss Marple and Parker Pyne I d forgotten him Ideas picked up dropped and then sometimes picked up again for another story Characters changing names and evolving It really is fascinatingOf course plot points and killers identities are given away but titles discussed are listed at the start of each themed section and at the start of each piece about a specific book Which seems reasonable to meAnd so I find myself reminded of books I d uite forgotten Happily recalling others noting a few that I don t think I ve read yet I want to read and re read every single one And then I want to look again at what this book had to say I m definitely going to need a copy of my own

CHARACTERS ↠ Agatha Christie's Secret Notebooks O de trabalho causam ainda hoje grande perplexidade As pistas para os seus métodos e personalidade veriam a luz do dia em 2004 ano da morte de Rosalind filha da autora Na mansão da família foram encontrados os cadernos privados de Agatha Christie um extraordinário legado de setenta e três volumes escritos à mão Mas foi apenas uando o aruivista John Curran começou a decifrá los ue a verdadeira dimensão deste tesouro se to. I m a huge Agatha Christie fan but I felt this book was a waste of my time and money I did learn a little about Christie s writing habits she had terrible handwriting most of her life ironically getting better as she aged What s up with that made lists of scenes and rearranged them to suit herself and often did not know who the murderer would be when she began to plot the book Interesting tidbits but not worth trudging through the book to learn such trivia The two short stories were actually variations of published stories One was mildly interesting as it was based on Hitler and had him renouncing Nazism and finding God Otherwise not much else to recommend it Sadly disappointed
