Embarrassingly, I've read only one Agatha Christie novel in my life, and that was "Sad Cypress" many many years ago. I wasn't terribly impressed. But, I decided I needed to try her again, mostly because I was in the mood for some fluffy 1920s English fiction with lots of manor houses and afternoon tea and whatnot. I'm reading "The Murder of Roger Ackroyd" and it really is quite funny, in that delightfully dry, English way. Par example:

"I thank you, no," said Poirot, rising. "All my excuses for having deranged you."
"Not at all, not at all."
"The word deranged," I remarked, when we were outside again, "is applicable to mental disorder only."
"Ah!" cried Poirot, "never will my English be quite perfect. A curious language. I should have said disarranged, n'est-ce pas?"
"Disturbed is the word you had in mind."

:D
