This website is the home of the Agatha Christie data base as annotated by Kate Gingold, hence the name Agatha Annotated.
It's a rich glossary of
- nearly 1900 terms
- over 200 illustrations
- 347 French phrases
Kate found them while reading Agatha Christie novels, and wrote them, along with definitions curated from years of research, into this database.
Currently the first 11 Christie books, those she wrote in the 1920s, are annotated here.
Anybody can be a member and gain access to this rich glossary. Visit the Community page to learn the details.
We took the 1920s terms and published a book, Agatha Annotated: Investigating the Books of the 1920s, now available on Amazon in Paperback or Kindle format.
Kate will be adding to the database and members get the new terms and definitions first before the second volume is printed, plus members can comment and ask questions about the terms and Kate and other members can replay.
We hope you enjoy. Click around the pages to learn more.
