|Is Poirot GOOD? Or is he as EVIL|
as his malignant author??
Thing is, I'm confused. For the last ...year or so...maybe a bit less, I've been on an ANTI-AGATHA CHRISTIE tangent. Ragging on the woman whenever the mood hit me. See, I have a hard time respecting an author whose only reason for creating a character is to (hopefully) ride on the popularity of a super-popular author and character of the same genre and then treating that character with HATRED for NO apparent reason. And so, I've upped the ante and write with contempt for that woman at every turn. She deserves it.
And therein lies the reason for this post.
As I may have done, in other posts, I'm asking.... 🙏BEGGING, in fact, to hear from LOYALISTS of this woman's poisonous writings. PLEADING them to step forward and defend her, if she can be defended at all. My God, I read one blurb and I'm sick! If the scope of her novels are like this, you people are ingesting literary Strychnine ! HOW either Poirot or that BITCH even has a fan-base is a MYSTERY to make the origins of the universe come off as easy as basic math! And how the writers of the series ( "Poirot" ) turned this hateful creature into someone who is loved is MIRACLE of BIBLICAL PROPORTIONS! (Cue Handel's HALLELUJAH chorus!) Mind you, in "Being Poirot" an award winning crime author (from Belgium) insisted that it was to DAVID SUCHET'S credit that Poirot became so well loved. It would have to be, because it sure as HELL wasn't to christie's!
I'm SOOO NOT getting this!!!! Nor, unfortunately, am I getting any help in figuring it out!
Madame Christie, where ARE your DEFENDERS?!?!? Those who sing your praises, (for a character you wished you'd never created) and devour this creative sewage like it's a steak dinner! The ONLY way an agatha christie novel will EVER get into my home is if ; A) it's owned by someone I invite over or ; B) the manufacturers of TOILET PAPER go on strike!
I speak as a STRIDENT Christie DETRACTOR who LOATHES this DETESTABLE female with every fiber of my being and am NOT afraid to admit it. Never did I imagine hating a DEAD person as much as I UTTERLY DESPISE AGATHA CHRISTIE!🤮
So, WHY, AGATHA LOYALISTS do you NOT DEFEND this author whom you hail and herald, in spite of her vile treatment of a character who, in all honesty, would have been better off kept to a longhand draft and then forgotten. Just as the children of irresponsible women may well have been better off in the medical containment units of an abortion clinic.

In the words of Stephen King's Pet Semetary, "Sometimes DEAD is BETTER" Especially when the alternative is life with someone who couldn't give a damn about you.
