Literary criticism of Agatha Christie

This is a delightfully fun literary criticism take on Agatha Christie’s works, including many short stories. I also appreciate the discussion of adaptations, which is why I’m watching the Joan Hickson The Body in the Library right now. I’ve been (apparently) a casual fan of Christie’s work for 30+ years and have discovered so many fascinating ways to think about this work listening to the podcast! And Katherine, talk more! I want to hear more from you! (I love you Camper you’re totally taking up more than half the airtime)

Fun and informative

This is a great podcast. I recommend it to all Christie fans. Not only do they present an entertaining review but they provide background information. I don’t always agree with their reviews; but it is fun, friendly disagreement.

So delighted with dark Marple theory

Really enjoy the podcast. I loved Katharine’s dark Marple theory because it just turns ageism on its head and sees Marple with such wonderful agency- just delightful.
