Overview

Over the course of her long, prolific career, Agatha Christie gave the world a wealth of ingenious whodunits and page-turning locked-room mysteries featuring Miss Marple, Hercule Poirot, and a host of other unforgettable characters. She also gave us Come, Tell Me How You Live, a charming, fascinating, and wonderfully witty nonfiction account of her days on an archaeological dig in Syria with her husband, renowned archeologist Max Mallowan. Something completely different from arguably the best-selling author of all time, Come, Tell Me How You Live is an evocative journey to the fascinating Middle East of the 1930s that is sure to delight Dame Agatha’s millions of fans, as well as aficionados of Elizabeth Peters’s Amelia Peabody mysteries and eager armchair travelers everywhere.

This is a wonderful and charming book. I am a Christie fan, but this book is great for those who want to read a book about archeological adventure, or just a simpler time. It is funny, interesting and a delight. An easy and pleasurable read.

This was a very pleasant read which transported me to the time and place of the dig. I have recently started reading works by Agatha Christie and this book made me so excited to learn more about her and read more of her books. Its a really simple book but very interesting and funny. Will read it again often i expect.
