According to Guinness World Records, she is the best-selling novelist of all time, her novels having sold over four billion copies and having been translated into more than one hundred languages. The Agatha Award for best mystery and crime writers was named in her honor.


"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 (London)
"Agatha Christie is no longer merely one of my favorite writers. She is now one of my favorite people."--Chicago Tribune
"A delightful autobiography....Warm, witty and discerning."--Los Angeles Times
"Wonderfully easy to read and engrossing."--The Times (London)
"Joyful adventure....She brings the sense of her extraordinary career."--New York Times Book Review
"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 (London)
"This book proves as inspiring as it is charming and absorbing."--Boston Globe
"Brisk and admirable....Capturing the experience of a generation too often made over-grim or over-glorious, it is the autobiography of a woman, not merely a writer."--Los Angeles Times
"Especially welcome."--Publishers Weekly
"Contains some wonderful treats....Christie writes with such wit and insight that all 542 pages fly."--Cleveland Plain Dealer
"A fun read, full of detail about upper-crust life in the Victorian era and about Christie's own surprise at finding herself a mystery novelist."--Charlotte News & Observer
"The history of a unique upbringing in a time long gone. It's a portrait of a childhood and young womanhood that vanished with World War I."--Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
"Christie writes with a wonderful dry wit. It is fascinating to see how people she met became characters in her novels."--Daily American
