I'm a huge Agatha Christie fan - have been since I first read a "Hercule Poirot" mystery back in junior high (I believe it was Murder on the Orient Express). I quickly went through most of the books involving the Belgian detective and then read them all again (and again and again...). A few years ago I finally gave "Miss Marple" a chance and didn't find her quite as captivating as Monsieur Poirot, but still enjoyable for easy reading. I have quite an Agatha Christie collection these days, thanks in part to our local used book store, and am always on the hunt for a Christie mystery I haven't read. There are a few that I have found to be flops (N or M? for one, Endless Night for another), but for the most part, if I've had a bad day or am feeling stressed, I usually find myself selecting a Christie mystery to help me relax.
