My favourite British writer is Agatha Christie. Her works were translated into many languages, and many films were made on her stories.
The name of Agatha Christie is a synonym for high-class detective story. Agatha Christie's novels are very popular now. The favourite characters of the "queen of detective story" are the detectives Hercules Poirot and Miss Marple.
People of all continents read and reread "The Oriental Express", "Ten Little Negroes", "The Bertram Hotel", "The Corpse in the library" and other of her novels time and again, enjoy films made by her works, and one can hardly find a country where people do not know her name.
