Who dunnit?

Most of you are too young to remember the fashions of the eighties the first time round, but you’ve been reliving them in all their glorious technicoloured wonder during their comeback over the last few years!

Like fashion and music, books have revivals too. Agatha Christie is one of those writers whose books go through revivals of popularity, and recently her books have taken off yet again, surging in popularity once more. Christie began writing and publishing her ‘who dunnits’ in the 1920s, and with over two billion copies sold since then, she is the best-selling author of all time.

This lady defined the classic murder mystery plot line that we know and love, and her books remain intriguing as ever, all these years later. Her two detectives, Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot, are the stars of her novels and are beloved by millions.

The Nicholas Library has always had copies of Agatha Christie’s novels for you to read but recently we’ve gotten in some copies with brand new funky covers. The publishers are definitely bringing Ms Christie’s work into the 21st century!

So if you’ve never delved into the world of Agatha Christie, or you’d like to return to some old school mystery, come on in and borrow one today!
