The 8:55 to Baghdad
by Andrew Eames [915.6 Eam]

Eames, a young Londoner, decides to retrace Agatha Christie's famous journey on the Orient Express in 1992 and recounts his travels. A must for the armchair traveler, although Eames' travel acquaintances can be coarse at times and I thought he spent too much time explaining Balkans political history, despite his thoughtfulness and wit in doing so. Geographical Magazine said, "a thoroughly enjoyable read that combines an Agatha-centric travelogue with a thought-provoking journey through a benighted land." May not be in paperback yet.
