I read two of Christie's great novels during my military service-- The murder of orient express and Murder on the Nile. The stories are intriguing and top-notch!!!

Hello BBC Learning English! There's no this episode on BBC WORLD SERVICE 6 Minute English Podcast mp3 series. But I found it on your website. Generally I listen to 6 Minute English Podcast when I'm driving, or doing something. Thank you very much for your great great job. BBC Learning English is part of my life. My favourite series apart from "6 Minute English" are "The importance of being Ernest" and "Weekender".

I'm looking for movies adapted from her books. Actually "The Murder on the Orient Express" and "Death on the Nile" are adapted. Do you know any other movies that are adapted?

I read Murder of the Orient Express on English class when I was in senior high school. Until now, I still think the story is terrific and Agatha Christie is one of the best detective novel author of the world.

The queen of murder mysteries is back! I nearly read all of her books since I was an avid reader of her novel stories. And one of my favourite is The elephants don´t forget, that is a masterpiece. I topped off my day with this programme. I enjoyed myself so much.

At BBC Sounds Drama website you can find and listen to many Agatha Christie books adapted as radio novels with both Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple. They're quite good and excellent to improve your listen habiliteis.

Agatha Christie has been ony of my favourite writers since my childhood. Especially, I admire Hercule Poirot's stories, and recently have started watching 1990-2000's 'Poirot' series to advance my listening skills. Thanks for the video.
