Collins brings the Queen of Crime, Agatha Christie, to English language learners.
Agatha Christie is the most widely published author of all time and in any language. Now Collins has adapted her famous detective novels for English language learners. These carefully adapted versions are shorter with the language targeted at upper-intermediate learners (CEF level B2).
Each reader includes:
• A CD with a reading of the adapted story
• Helpful notes on characters
• Cultural and historical notes relevant to the plot
• A glossary of the more difficult words
Roger Ackroyd is a man who knows too much.
He knows the woman he loved poisoned her first husband. He knows someone was blackmailing her – and now he knows she killed herself.
When Roger Ackroyd is found murdered, the famous Belgian
detective, Hercule Poirot, is called in to find out who the killer is.

‘As a teacher using the Amazing People ELT Readers in an Extensive Reading Project, I’m as happy as my students are: motivating topics/real people, interesting facts and a great alternative to Graded Reader fiction. Having said that, the same class is also reading books from the Agatha Christie series, and enjoying them very much. Their Reading Diaries are full of questions, speculation about who-dunnit and comments about “unputdownability”. The buzz in the classroom when we’re swopping books is tangible.’
Hania Bociek, Zürich, Switzerland
There are rumours she murdered her first husband, rumours that she was blackmailed, and rumours that her secret lover was Roger Ackroyd. When Ackroyd is found murdered it is unlucky for the killer that Hercule Poirot is close by. Setting up the traditional rules of mystery only to shatter them, this ingeniously tricky masterpiece startled fans, polarised critics, and stunned the Detection Club, the highly esteemed literary organisation, of which Christie herself was a member. One of the most famous detective novels ever written, and certainly one of the most controversial, The Murder of Roger Ackroyd was championed by Dorothy L Sayers who said, “Christie fooled you (all)… It’s the readers business to suspect everyone.” And you will.
