When I was growing up in the UK, there seemed to be at least one Agatha Christie adaptation on TV each week, so it comes as something of a surprise to see that she "only" wrote sixty-six novels. I guess a lot of the adaptations were just stories that used her characters.
Apr 27th, 2009 at 17:16 GMT
Ahem...turns out I only know one (Orient express) ... I nearly got another, but I was out by 5 minutes (I thought it was 4:55 from Paddington lol) ...I tend to watch them on TV but never take in the titles.
Apr 27th, 2009 at 17:21 GMT
same here only watched all the david suchet adaptations of poirot and don't know the titles, could probably tell you all the murderers if that helps save you watching 30 odd episodes
Apr 27th, 2009 at 17:39 GMT
Got 11, which seems to put my in top 43% but is more likely to be top 12%. Think that 3-11 category is too broad.
Apr 27th, 2009 at 18:47 GMT
Got one. Would've been two if that fake one from last season's Doctor Who episode was a bonus answer.
Apr 27th, 2009 at 18:52 GMT
For some reason I confuse Agatha Christie with Daphne du Maurier and started off on "Rebecca". As it was I only managed one correct answer here. Like most people (I imagine), I've seen the TV adaptations but not read the books.
Apr 27th, 2009 at 19:50 GMT
Probably read 99% of them, but could only remember 19, which still puts me in the top 12.5%! Damn the time of that train, could have sworn it was 4.52!! I'm glad that it accepts the original title of And Then There Were None, despite the unpleasant word in it, as I couldn't for the life of me remember what it was changed to.
Apr 27th, 2009 at 20:05 GMT
I got 46 out of 66, though felt I should have done better. I was disappointed none of the short story collections were included which would have pushed the total titles up around 80. Incidentally, a lot of the Poirot series was adapted from the short stories, which is why it feels like she wrote more than 66 books.
Apr 27th, 2009 at 22:04 GMT
Wow. I could have sworn she did "Witness for the Prosecution."
Apr 28th, 2009 at 03:59 GMT
32, shocking. The problem was, I kept thinking "that one where the woman shot her husband by the swimming pool" or "the bizarre one with the scientist-camp in the middle of the desert"...knowing the plots and the names and whodunnit but not the titles...
Apr 28th, 2009 at 06:33 GMT
Where was Mousetrap?
Apr 28th, 2009 at 10:00 GMT
Hurrah! Requested this one AGES ago. Thanks guys! Even so, I was pretty feeble....can't type fast. For those of you wondering...The fabulous Agatha DID write both 'Witness for the Prosecution' & 'The Mousetrap'....as PLAYS. As for the short stories...There are over 80 of those. R.I.P Agatha.
Apr 28th, 2009 at 19:16 GMT
Mousetrap was a short story, then a play. Witness for the Prosecution was also a short story.
Apr 30th, 2009 at 03:01 GMT
I own the whole collection and have read them countless times but like AHGR could remember plots and locations and the cover art but only 27 of the titles.
Jun 26th, 2009 at 02:57 GMT
I thought I had read all her books, but I hadn't heard of a few of these. I'm happy I get to read a few more of her books for the first time!
Apr 10th, 2010 at 04:48 GMT
I thought 34 was great, but still only 76th percentile. How about giving us a break and counting "A Pocketful of Rye" (the real nursery rhyme line) for "A Pocket Full of Rye"?
Apr 10th, 2010 at 18:36 GMT
it should allow titles without a or the, otherwise it takes too long
May 16th, 2010 at 23:23 GMT
What about her short story collections? Surely they deserve a category?
Jun 28th, 2010 at 16:33 GMT
Hey... where is Partners in Crime??
Jul 11th, 2010 at 22:27 GMT
I also noticed that partners in crime was missing, as was the mysterious mr quinn. Great idea for a quiz though. Thank you
Jul 23rd, 2010 at 15:52 GMT
The thing is, no short story collections were included in this quiz -- novels only. So "The Mysterious Mr. Quinn" and "Partners in Crime" didn't qualify. There were other books like that -- e.g., "The Labors of Hercules," "The Tuesday Club Murders," etc. Of the short story collection books, some featured Poirot, some Miss Marple, one Tommy and Tuppence, and the rest feature none of those recurring characters.
Aug 8th, 2010 at 22:13 GMT
Ack! I only got 13, and probably would've gotten 8 more had my memory not failed me, but no more than that. All the others, I didn't know their original titles in English. I read them in Spanish when I was a teen. Ah, the memories!
Oct 14th, 2010 at 19:34 GMT
The TV version of Why didn't they ask Evans? features the actors who played Tommy and Tuppence (and she is a clergyman's daughter, as is Tuppence) and is considered part of that series by some.
May 16th, 2011 at 13:08 GMT
I thought a knew Christie but my mind went blank, should have got about another 10/15 but just couldn't remember the titles. Never mind will have another go in a few days and hope by brain is working then
Feb 3rd, 2012 at 20:55 GMT
This showed me just how few of her books our library has... I've read everyone they have... all 13.
Mar 4th, 2012 at 20:29 GMT
Great quiz about the greatest author. Alas, I too got much less than I should have. No complaints though, your list is complete for novels; just my head was missing some volumes.
Apr 3rd, 2013 at 19:35 GMT
no the mysterious Mr Quin?
Apr 3rd, 2013 at 19:42 GMT
I don't know how I found it so hard to remember these titles when I'm such a Christie fan, especially when I managed to know all the titles on the complete the missing word in the title Christie quiz!
