For those who have not acquainted themselves with Agatha Christie, you should. Reading is almost a second religion in my house (If you put down a book, don't expect to finish it till everyone else in the house has), and there are pretty well three required reading authors: Christie, Tolkien, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Bravo to Mr. Griffin for choosing one of Christie's greatest!

For those of you who like Christie's works, you should read her story "A man in a brown suit". One of her finest murder mysteries with some of my favorite characters (not re-occurring characters even!) from any of her books.

By the way guys, do you think it'd be better if I read the book now, rather than after this arc finishes? I fear that I may be missing out on some subtle inside jokes.

Also, how long is this novel? If I'm gonna read it, I'd have to do so during my (very limited amount of) free time, and I'm just curious whether I can finish the book before the arc ends? I am not gifted with Peanut's power of super speed reading lul :D

I just decided to start reading the book, and reread whatever of the arc is out before I finish it.

Had to read before the arc got too far. The rest of everything makes more sense now. Even the hats.

Have started reading yesterday evening. I'm now at the same position as the present comic.

The thing is, do you really want to spoil it by reading the book first?

Yes. I had very big problems to follow the other Let's Imaginate Arcs because of my non existent knowledge of Shakespeare. So they have been very boring for me. This will not happen this time.

Actually now that I think about it, Family Guy had an episode loosely based on "And Then There Were None."

I would like to thank Housepets for introducing me to so many great books.
I'm really glad that Rick chose to do another Imaginate arc.. I'm sure it'll delve into silliness soon. xD
Who's to say it hasn't already?

That'd be the one.

I was wishing I'd had enough money one time when I was in an antique book store near me. They had the complete run of Sherlock Holmes in the original copies of the Strand Magazine.
