Pick Your Poison: Who’s Your Favorite Agatha Christie Sleuth?

Posted October 6, 2015 by Alison's Wonderland Recipes in Uncategorized / 5 Comments

Pretty much every Agatha Christie fan I know has a strong opinion on whether Hercule Poirot or Miss Marple is a better sleuth. Me? I’m completely torn.

I LOVE Poirot’s little eccentricities and penchant for perfection (in Cards on the Table, he’s heard to say, “I am always right. It is so invariable it startles me.”). Then again, I love the simple, unobtrusive way Jane Marple always manages to crack a case just by reflecting on her own experiences with human nature. I wish I could trek through London with Poirot on a case, but I’d probably want to end the day sipping tea by the fire with Miss Marple.

  1. Poirot is definitely my favorite! I like Miss Marple too, but I just find Poirot’s pomposity completely charming, lol. I also enjoy some of her lesser known sleuths, like Ariadne Oliver, Mr. Harley Quin, and Parker Pyne (Miss Lemon’s original employer). Honestly, if it’s Agatha Christie, I like it. 😀
