But even if you aren't a fan of Agatha Christie there is much more to the book to make it thoroughly interesting. In the book Eames says a travel writer should bring to the reader an insight to countries that, apart from the terrible things reported in the news such as war and genocide, we would know and hear very little about. This he successfully does, whether it's Serbia after the NATO bombings or Iraq before the current conflict, providing another view of life there other than the one we see on the news.
