  • Great resource for writers, and Christie fans.

    Mystery will always be my favorite genre, and when I saw a book about the Queen of Mystery and poisons, I just had to give it a read. Kathryn Harkup did a fantastic job with the scientific and historic information, real life cases, and not giving away who did it. I did skip a bit over the scientific information, just because chemistry has never been a strong area of interest to me. Although I have been dabbling in essential oils, so I’m actually starting to get a bit more into chemical combinations and reactions. I’ve been reading True Crime since middle school, so I found the real life cases fascinating. And as far as the historical information went, if kids were taught about stuff like this in history classes, instead of just having to memorize dates and places, I think a lot more kids would enjoy history and do better in school. Since this book touches so many genres, I think many different people would enjoy this one. I highly recommend giving it a read if you enjoy mysteries, true crime, science, or history. And I also think this would be a valuable resources for writers.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • For lovers of chemistry and Agatha Christie

    As an Agatha Christie fan who likes science I loved this book. Quirky perhaps but really interesting and readable.
