Overview

To the world she was Agatha Christie, author of numerous bestselling mysteries and whodunits, arguably the most popular writer in the English language. But in the 1930s she wore a different hat, traveling with her husband, renowned archaeologist Max Mallowan, as he investigated the buried ruins and ancient wonders of Syria and Iraq. Described by the author as a "meandering chronicle of life on an archaeological dig," Come, Tell Me How You Live is Dame Agatha Christie's first-person account of her time spent in this breathtaking corner of the globe where recorded human history began. It is a fascinating, eye-opening, vibrant, and vivid portrait of a place, a people, and a past, by a legendary writer whose extraordinary popularity endures to this day; an altogether remarkable narrative of everyday life in a world now long since vanished.

    It's on Pre-Order (April 12)!

    This is the second time you asked me to review a book that I didn't receive yet. As I told you the first time, I would be happy to rate and review this book after I receive it and read it. The one-star rating is for Barnes and Noble for the lack of cooperation and assistance.

    loved it

    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.

    Lovely trip back in time

    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.
