Agatha is Cozy?

 

The debate of “cozy crime” and what makes Agatha Christie’s novels (and adaptations) so good is covered in this read. While personally I agree with James Prichard, the chairman and CEO of Agatha Christie Ltd., that “cozy (cosy) crime” is not a correct label and that crime is meant to be something to disturb you and make you think, the opposite view is also explored. I also find it interesting to think about the “cozy crime” in the sense of television crime dramas -they are there when you  turn on the TV and you can settle in and watch comfortablely. But, I think challenging this subtype of genre we can delve deeper into crime and what it says about human nature. This is also exactly why Agatha Christie’s mysteries are excellent reads. Her understanding of human nature is used in her books to make the motivations of killers realistic and a demonstration of what can, and has, happened in the world of crime.
