Curiosidade Cultural: A escritora Agatha Christie

Agatha May Clarissa Mallowan, known worldwide as Agatha Christie, was a British crime writer of novels, short stories and plays. She also wrote romances under the name Mary Westmacott. She created some famous characters, such as Hercule Poirot, Miss Marple, Tommy, Tuppence Beresford, Parker Pyne, and others.

Agatha was the first writer to make the outcomes of her books extremely impressive and unexpected, and virtually impossible for the reader to figure out who the killer was. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, she is the best-selling writter of books of all time. Only the bible has sold more than her - that sold roughly four billion copies of novels.
