Do you agree, would you add someone else ?
I feel very "under-read." I don't even remember the Agatha Christie book :o
It was interesting to see East of Eden on the list. I never thought of the mother as a child, but yes a pretty evil person. This is a favorite book of mine. So worth reading.
Meanwhile, perhaps @sennydreadful was channeling this list when she wrote Ip in Copper Promise.
In one of WsIP, I'm creating an evil child, so this is well timed.  8)
