Anthony Trollope facts: The English novelist Anthony Trollope (1815-1882) wrote a series of novels that chronicle the everyday life of middle-class Victorians  . Anthony Trollope's fiction mirrors the Establishment of that period-comfortably off, even wealthy; concerned with individual morality; and relatively unaware of how private virtues and vices interact with public issues. Trollope was born on April 24, 1815. His mother, Frances Trollope (1780-1863), was the author of The Domestic Manners of the Americans (1832) and many novels.

Of all the memoir/autobiography's I've read in the last YEAR - this one is the TOP FAVORITE. Ok, that might be because I'm a writer as well - and love to read about how other writer's go about the craft. But, writing aside - the woman has sold more books that any other novelist - OF ALL TIME. Her books are the most widely published behind Shakespeare and the Bible. I mean for that reason alone - you'd want to find out more about her. And for those of you who love Romance...after her first husband left her for another woman- she found love later in life with a much younger man and was married to him for the rest of her life! Happy Marriage late in life, the most popular novelist ever - and a wonderful writer of things such as what was happening in London after the war. This is a history book - a romance, and a 'how to be a writer' book. I absolutely LOVED it.
First, let me say that Agatha Christie's autobiography is one of my all-time favorite books. That's why I purchased the Kindle version when I already own a hard copy.

Imagine my disappointment, then, as I read along, the narrative suddenly makes no sense. I'm not talking about the occasional misprint, those are to be expected. No, whole paragraphs and sections are simply gone. Is this an abridged version? Sometimes the text is neatly excised, and unless you knew what should have been there, you'd never miss it. Other times it is jarring. For example, Mrs. Christie is reflecting on the pleasures of the suqs in Bagdhad, and the next page drops into the middle of a conversation about metaphysics with some unnamed person. (Whom frantic searches of my hard copy revealed to be Maurice Vickers.) Now, I don't know about most, but I need context before I can face a discussion of metaphysics on my good days - and to find myself suddenly confronted with the meaty middle of a treatise on the philosophical implications of Time and Infinity, without a fair warning or time to prepare myself, was a terrible shock to the system. Referencing the hard copy, and filling in the missing paragraphs, made the discussion not only palatable, but deeply interesting and even profound.

I don't how many other such errors there are. I do know that as I read a book with which I am fairly familiar, I often felt that some things were missing, and a superficial comparison of the Kindle and hard copies confirmed that.

Agatha Christie's autobiography is an engrossing journey into the mind of an original and entertaining woman. Its little forays into Victoriana, such as the proper books for children to read, or suitable names for cooks, house maids and parlourmaids, (and why they weren't the same), are charming and fascinating. Her reminiscences of her times on archaeological digs in the middle east are compelling. It's more than worth reading - just not in the Kindle version.
A wonderful account in her own words, Agatha Christie's autobiography will keep the reader interested in knowing a little bit more about her life as wife, mother, and author. The story of her life is told seemingly effortlessly by Agatha. Agatha Christie's earliest memories of home, childhood,and the importance of family and place will keep the reader from wanting to put this book down. I enjoyed the way you can hear her tell her own story without pretense or artifice. Agatha Christie has a way of telling a story so well that you just want to keep reading and reading. Her own life's story is no different. This is one of the finest autobiographies I have ever read. It is truly a classic, like the author herself.
A wonderful book, full of memories of a world that is no more. Extremely enjoyable. What the author doesn't cover in her autobiography is the mysterious episode of her disappearance for eleven days (if you're interested in knowing more about that, you might want to check out "Agatha Christie and the Eleven Missing Days" by Jared Cade). Otherwise, Victorian England comes to life in the words of Dame Agatha Christie.
Regardless of whether you are a lover of mystery fiction, you will love this autobiography by arguably the most successful mystery writer of all time. Agatha Christie led a fascinating life during an enormously eventful time in history. Born during the reign of Queen Victoria, she lived, served and worked through two World Wars and through the major events of the 20th century, and all of her experiences are captured in her novels and in this wonderful autobiography. Mrs. Christie tells her story vividly and with great emotion, and truly captures in this eminently readable and humorous work, a feeling for the events that shaped and the people who populated her world.

This is a new edition of a long-time favorite book that I re-read and share with others on a regular basis. I am always inspired by Mrs. Christie's indomitable spirit and courage, and her positive outlook, even during dark times of war, illness, financial worry and grief, all of which she handles with great dignity in her work.

The great bonus in this new edition is the CD of Dame Agatha dictating portions of her work. It is absolutely fascinating to hear her clear and lovely voice at work, and provides additional insight into her writing process and, indeed, to her personality.
she did it her way! you can almost see Agatha Christie sitting down wherever she is at the time and putting her life in words.

if you are looking for the answer to where she was and why she went missing you may be disapointed.

if you are looking for a well written book that is not done in the classic style of autobiographies but is more like someone
is telling you their lifestory over times when you are comfortably sitting nearby listening to them.

you will also find out many facts that might surprise you about the type of person she was and why and how she wrote as she did.
I am an Agatha Christie fan so I loved reading her autobiography. This book is written like a memoir and she just seemed to write what came to mind at the time.f Very enjoyable -- hard to put down. And I hated for it to end.
