3. The best bit is
at the slightest surprise, all the women faint. It must have been very fashionable last century.

I've seen all manner of surprising things, a lot of them with women present, but I've never seen anyone faint.

Has anyone actually seen anyone faint, or is it just me?

"Just Pulp"? With all due respect, your friend is an idiot.
Mrs. Christie has provided the reader with a pleasant diversion.

5. I am a huge fan
I probably read 40 Agatha Christie books last year. It was a compulsion. Then when I exhausted Christie, I turned to Wodehouse (the creator of Bertie and Jeeves).

Favorite Character: Mr. Quin - a unique, very unusual character.
Favorite Book: "The Mysterious Mr. Quin"
