Agatha Christie’s works are published throughout the world in over 50 languages. The appetite for reading Christie continues to flourish, with new readers constantly discovering her murder mysteries. Reading an Agatha Christie book is a rite of passage into adulthood, and a comfortable, familiar read for those that have already discovered her stories, with the colourful characters and charming settings encouraging the reader to escape into another world. Christie’s use of language makes her eminently translatable, and easily adaptable for educational tools and adult learners.
