    I've read Nemesis and The Mirror Crack'd. I enjoyed both because I love Miss Marple. However, Nemesis for me was the darker of the two, it being the last mystery that Christie wrote while alive (she had one saved for after her death). It involved two sisters and their secrets. The Mirror Crack'd is a lot of fun and about Hollywood. You'll enjoy both!

    "Agatha Christie was the greatest exponent of the classical detective story. Her unique literary talents have crossed every boundary of age, race, class, geography and education. While she refined the template for a fictional form, the reading of her books became an international pastime." John CurranI started reading and collecting Agatha Christie books when I was 9 years old. I adored her books and still do. There is a great comfort, as an adult, in reading her books and acute observations of people that favours style over the penny horrors of sadism, torture, and graphic violence favoured by some authors.

    Classic Agatha Christie mysteries. Enjoyed reading all 5 novels included in this collection. Quick and easy read as well. `Nemesis` is quite likely my favorite among all the Agatha Christie novels/stories I have read so far. Very interesting fact that it was the last book she wrote before her death. This edition of the book is poorly edited with many typos - which seem to break the reading rhythm regularly. Also, the order of novels is messed up. `The body in the library` should be first, but is included last.

    I love Agatha Christie, and I think Miss Marple is my most beloved of her detectives.

    I just finished the 4th book in this collection: "What Mrs. McGillicuddy Saw!" I really enjoyed it and there were tons of characters and details for me to sort out. I never would have guessed the actual person. I am currently reading the last book in this treasury. I love Miss Marple mysteries. However this particular version of these books by this publisher is not edited very well. There are many typos and wrong words In the middle of sentences. The books themselves are great stories though!!!

    Not as good as the Poirot books. They are well written books and I would have given another 1/2 star if I could, but I just couldn't give 4 stars. I found it kind of annoying that the best and brightest of Scotland Yard were consistently made to look like blind idiots by an old lady armed with nothing more than a knack for recognizing personality types. I'm maybe just getting wise to the tricks but I found the Marple novels more predictable than the Poirot series.

    Actual rating 4.5And then there were none...Glad to have finally read this, as I've been saying for a couple of years now that I would pick it up. I quite liked the fact that each story was so unique in it's formula and it's characters, although not having read much Miss Marple before, I did find it a little odd just how little she featured in the stories sometimes.

    Again - I've read every mystery I could get my hands on from Agatha Christie so I'll just give a general review. Her books are timeless and amazing. I even own a few - since I have the happy problem of never remembering "whodunit" it's new every time!

    I really liked The Mirror Cracked, A Caribbean Mystery, and Nemesis. the other two stories were okay, but not as interesting. I was disappointed by the character development in What Mrs. Mcgillicuddy Saw. It was weak.

    Christie deserves her fame. That's how you tightly structure a novel without seeming to. And I just like the idea of this old lady connecting all the dots while the young folks run around in an exitless maze.

    What can I say? It's an Agatha Christie mystery and not just one but 5, if you've never read one then its time. Miss Marple is so much more fun than Sherlock, after all, who can resist a fluffy little old lady who solves everything by just using her common sense and knowledge of human nature.

    This is a very good anthology, although the order of the books is confusing. They are not in chronological order nor published order and they are not five books in the Miss Marple series in a row, they jump around. However, they are all good novels.

    This was definitely fun. The mysteries were not predictable and I found the character of Miss. Marple to be an enjoyable one. I would read the others in the series.

    A nice collection, but the order makes no sense at all.

    A compilation of five very good Agatha Christie novels; The Mirror Crack'd, A Carribean Mystery, Nemesis, What Mrs. McGillicuddy Saw, and The Body in the Library.

    This is specifically for What Mrs. McGillicuddy Saw!, because it's only in collections. So far, I liked it best of these five Miss Marple novels, but I still have one left!

    Interesting how dated some of the stories are. Didn't mean I didn't enjoy them, just that slang, in particular, was noticeable because of its outdatedness.

    Poorly proofed but good choices for collection.
