Free Fridays Recommends
"If Agatha Christie were still alive, she’d probably recommend Bleak House by Charles Dickens, which was one of her favorite novels. The character of Inspector Bucket, who’s considered one of the first detectives in English literature, may have inspired her to create her famous detective Hercule Poirot. She also wrote a screenplay adaptation of Bleak House for MGM, which was never produced."
