Latest News
The long-awaited Sir Kenneth Branagh film of Death on the Nile was released in February 2022, some 17 months later than originally planned. The reasons for the delay are well-known, but it did ratchet up the anticipation for another adaptation of Agatha Christie. 

Swigatha’s view is expressed on the page dedicated to the book and its adaptations: Death on the Nile.  

About this site
This website was created in the wake of a re-read by me of all of Agatha Christie’s detective fiction. Each book had its own pages of review, and in addition extra pages were added as the re-read led me down some unexpected paths.

The re-read having been completed, the review pages have been amalgamated, edited and published as Swigatha: A Re-read of Agatha Christie. This is now available, as both A4 paperback and e-book, with colour photos of each of the books themselves inside, from ‘all good bookshops’ . The pages for each of the 80 Christie novels and short story collections were made ‘private’ while the book was being produced, but will slowly be revealed during 2022 (as the one for Death on the Nile has been). 

However, the other pages of essays and analysis are still public:

Swigatha’s Blog featuring a more in-depth analysis of some aspects of the books; for example, for A Murder is Announced there is Who’s Who in Chipping Cleghorn?

Swigapedia a general section containing, for example, an examination of where Agatha Christie got her some of her titles:  Title Quotes

References a suggestion of further reading, from the essential (Christie’s Autobiography) to the less well-known, based on the what I uncovered during the re-read:  References

Extra pages will be added, as and when. The most recent one was an analysis of Christie’s Doctors in the Dock
