Agatha Christie’s ‘most absorbing mystery’ – her own autobiography.
Over the three decades since her death on 12 January 1976, many of Agatha Christie’s readers and reviewers have maintained that her most compelling book is probably still her least well-known. Her candid Autobiography, written mainly in the 1960s, modestly ignores the fact that Agatha had become the best-selling novelist in history and concentrates on her fascinating private life.
From early childhood at the end of the 19th century, through two marriages and two World Wars, and her experiences both as a writer and on archaeological expeditions with her second husband, Max Mallowan, Agatha shares the details of her varied and sometimes complex life with real passion and openness.
“Wonderfully easy to read and engrossing.” (The Times)
“The best thing she has ever written.” (Woman’s Own)
“Agatha Christie’s most absorbing mystery – the story of her own unusual life. She has put it all on record: her early romances; a broken (and a happy) marriage; strange events on the path to roaring success.” (Daily Mail)
“A wonderful book – written with a delight in the gradual unfolding of 75 years through the eyes of an exceptional old lady and writer.” (Financial Times)

Wow, I love it!
This audiobook is my absolute favourite ever. I never knew anything much about Agatha Christie, and it was really interesting and fun to find out about her life in her words (at least I hope not much was changed from her version I guess). She had such an interesting and exciting but difficult and ever very much changing life, it is just amazing to hear about it. I also just adore Judith Boyd and want to thank her from all my heart for her great storytelling which makes the stories she tells come to life. Just a perfect match narrator and author in this case. So as you can read, my heart belongs to this audiobook, I will listen to it over and over in the years to come, to just know every little thing said in it, because I also think, I can learn so much for my life from it, too. So thank you to all responsible for this wonderful treat, and I hope many people will listen to it.
