Why she might be annoying:

    Her stories center around rich, blue-blood types who get bumped off in posh locales.
    Her murderers go to ridiculous lengths to commit their crimes, when a simple shove down a flight of stairs would usually suffice.
    Her American characters often come off as yappy know-it-alls.
    She was a teetotaler.
    She vanished for three weeks in 1926, causing an international uproar. To this day, the reason behind her disappearance remains a - mystery! (Cue crack of thunder).

Why she might not be annoying:

    She volunteered as a nurse during World War I.
    She was an amateur archaeologist.
    Many of today's mystery writers recycle plots she devised decades ago.
    She has millions of fans around the world.
    Over 1 billion copies of her books have been sold (her sales are only surpassed by The Bible and Shakespeare).
    Most of her books have been spawned into movie and TV adaptations.
