Come, Tell Me How You Live

Come, Tell Me How You Live by Agatha Christie Mallowan

This is an autobiography written by Agatha Christie. It is over a period of several years where she accompanies her husband on his archeological digs. Christie tells of the 'travails' of first finding a suitable site to dig at and then of the subsequent years in finding the treasures.

Agatha Christie has written a very funny book. She tells of various encounters with wildlife. She also writes about the 'help'. One of them is Michael who wishes to save them money and be economical often with disastrous results. This book was written in 1946 and as such although Christie and her husband seem to be very fair minded are still very imperialist by nature

I enjoyed the read.

First Line: "In a few weeks' time we are starting for Syria."
