4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and enjoyable
Reviewed in India 🇮🇳 on 17 October 2022
As a young girl while reading countless stories of Sherlock and Poirot. I always craved to read about a female detective who solves crimes. And Agatha Christie created the most beloved character Miss Marple, who is a middle-aged spinster who lives in a quaint village called St. Mary Mead.

Miss Marple represents every woman who is undermined for her abilities and intelligence. But Miss Marple doesn't take it to heart, she uses this excuse to observe keen details that one might not care to hide as they're in the presence of a woman. Miss Marple is sharp and very deductive and oh so loveable with her warm grandmotherly vibes.

This book is an ode to a beloved female character written by an exceptional female author of all times, Agatha Christie. A collection of 12 short Miss Marple stories written by 12 popular female authors of the present time. Each story was quite enjoyable and absolutely interesting. It was quite fascinating to see each author's style incorporated into their own Marple story. Some stories did seem to drag on a bit but all in all, they were all splendidly written.

This is one of those reads that is interesting and comforting at the same time. A book you can savor with a warm cup of coffee. It's a quick read and really worth the time if you're a fan of Mysteries or Agatha Christie herself. I absolutely enjoyed reading this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Slew of characters encountered by Miss Marple that exposed her to different cultures
Reviewed in India 🇮🇳 on 30 September 2022
Miss Marple first made an appearance in the short story ‘The Tuesday Night Club’. Agatha Christie reintroduced this intriguing character “to give old maids a voice” and to defy the preconceived notion associated with unmarried women who were patronized and rather overlooked.

Favourite Quotes -

“I wonder, sometimes, if there isn’t a concentration of evil in small places.”

“Luck is only another word for cunning”

“Murderers are few and far between, thankfully. It’s much more important to spot trouble of the everyday sort.”

“Murders are always linked to matters of the heart.”

“The silence of the truth was as loud as a scream.”

Jane Marple found evil lurking in the smallest corners. She liked to indulge in small pleasures in her cottage at St. Mary's Mead. With her astute observation and sound knowledge of the world, she solved cases accurately before the police could even get a gist of the crime committed. With a penchant for tea and knitting, her deep blue eyes could catch the smallest of details that any eye could catch. 

Prominent crime writers such as Ruth Ware, Lucy Foley, Karen M McManus, Leigh Bardugo and eight other authors have come together to spin a yarn of tales surrounding Miss Marple by putting her among scores of people, teaming her up with various sleuths and sending her on to different adventures.

The authors incorporated their own styles in sketching the character of Miss Marple whilst keeping the main characteristics intact. One could guess the direction the story was heading owing to a shorter page length and fewer suspects. What I liked about this anthology was the slew of characters encountered by Miss Marple that exposed her to different cultures and the trademark penmanship left by the individual authors. Before I came across this anthology, I had only read Poirot’s cases but didn't get the fortune to read about Miss Marple.
