In January, alongside the spoiler-heavy podcast discussion of After the Funeral (1953) by Agatha Christie, I put up a poll for you, the readers/listeners, to select the Christie novels that would be the subject of future spoiler-heavy discussion. Today, we learn the results of that poll.
The options were:
Peril at End House (1932)
Death on the Nile (1937)
Murder is Easy, a.k.a. Easy to Kill (1939)
The Body in the Library (1942)
The Moving Finger (1942)
Five Little Pigs, a.k.a. Murder in Retrospect (1942)
Towards Zero (1944)
The Hollow (1946)
Mrs. McGinty’s Dead (1952)
…and after over 400 votes and a plea on my part not to subject me to Death on the Nile again, here’s how things turned out:
I jest, of course; here are the actual results, with the top three titles becoming the subjects of the next three Spoiler Warning discussions:
As before, we’ll tackle these chronologically, which also happens to be the order the first three came out: Five Little Pigs, a.k.a. Murder in Retrospect (1942) in April, Towards Zero (1944) in July, and Mrs. McGinty’s Dead (1952) — about which I remember nothing — in October.
And that’s…that’s about it for today. Er, I suppose I could also mention that next Saturday’s post will be the next episode of my In GAD We Trust podcast, and one I’m very excited about. So the brevity of this one is more than made up for by the amount of work that goes into editing that one. If, y’know, you were worried about such things.
Have a lovely weekend!
