Okay, let me start of by saying, please don’t be judgemental by just reading the topic. I know Agatha Christie is only the 3rd most popular writer in the world(after Shakespeare and Bible), and her books have sold nearly 4 billion copies, but, BUT, there is a story behind this (meaning, “I can explain”), behind why myself, being an avid novel reader, have ignored this author for the past 6 years of my life(since I first came to know about her works).
I think I was in 8th grade, when I first came across the author “Agatha Christie”. Back then, I was in a shift, migrating to new genres, new style of books. From reading “Secret Seven” and “The Famous Five” and “Harry Potter” to books by Jeffry Archer and the likes (even Lord of the Rings, :O). But back then, something happened. My parents, they said, “Don’t read Agatha Christie yet, it’s wayy too mature for you, the mystery and everything, and it may affect you, so give it a few more years. I was at the library at that moment when I heard these words over the phone.
So I picked up this book titled “Eragon” instead(I’m pretty sure you guys have read the inheritance series, c’mon!), and what can I say, I did end up with a pretty good book. But now, many years have passed, and I finally plan to read her books(because all these years, to be entirely honest, I forgot all about her haha!).
There you go, my story. What about yours? I’m pretty sure ALL of you have read Enid Blyton’s Famous Five. What else? What other books? What are you reading now? Do share with me and all of us!
