Well, it turns out that the Queen of Crime was also a decent poet – a little too traditional for my taste, perhaps, but competent enough. This collection of poetry was first published in 1973, and it consists of two separate volumes, the first of which was published as ‘The Road of Dreams‘ in 1924.
Christie’s sentimental rhyming poetry shows a different side to the woman who became one of the bestselling writers of all time, and it’s an interesting read for anyone who loves her work. Whether you’re in to poetry or not, it’s approachable and you’ll enjoy it whether you’re studying it or reading it on the bus.
