Well worth the time

I must admit that I had a bit of trouble with the narrator's delivery, and when I was about 40 minutes into the book I found that I was getting used to him, so I went back to the beginning and started over, enjoying every minute from that point on.
Ms. Christie led a very interesting life, subject to the joys, heartaches and disappointments that are a part of any full life. The writer has done a remarkable job of research and compilation and you leave this book with a whole new appreciation for the great volume of consistently excellent work produced by Ms. Christie in her lifetime.
If I have made this sound dry, it is not! I chose this book in one or another of Audible's sales and it sat in my library for over a year before I listened to it - but I am SO glad I did! Recommended highly.

Fascinating! A must for any Christi Fan

I really enjoyed this book. It gave a wonderful characterization of Christie, describing her residences, her likes and dislikes, and how she felt about her books and things in general. To my amazement I found that she was a very shy and modest person, which lasted throughout her life even in death.

This book is a must for any Christie fan!!
