1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By C. Sahu on March 22 2001
Format: Mass Market Paperback
There are really 3 autobiographical works that Agatha Christie wrote: there's this one, of course, which, if I remember right, covers her childhood and the early years of her first marriage, including how she began writing. Then there's "Come, Tell Me How You Live," about the 2nd part of her life, during her marriage to the archeologist Max Mallowan.
Then there's the novel (written under the pseudonym Mary Westmacott), "Unfinished Portrait." Although many things in "Unfinished Portrait" were clearly changed around for the sake of the story and don't pertain to her life at all, it is very frank emotionally about what was probably the hardest time of her life -- her divorce from her 2nd husband. It also tells a little more about her writing, since the heroine of the story is also a writer.
All 3 of the books are good reading.

I can see very interesting prospective towards this world, and how she enjoyed her life with her surroundings.
Besides being a successful author, Christy also presents the very fond attitude and life style which could really teach me a lot. Her sentimental writings also move me so much.

That book was great I loved that book because it told everything about her life in it, it told about when she was growing up and what happened in her life, while she was growing up. Life is great when you make somthing out of it. When Agatha Christie started getting sick she just didn't care she still just kept on writing and when she died somebody wrote the rest of it to say thats all the writing she has left for anyone because she had died. She was a great author because when she wrote her books she made them interesting to people to pick up her next book that she wrote.

Until I read this work of AC, I never knew someone can make you interested in their life so deeply. As most of her fictions, this book wins with one virute. Its simplicity. It is clean, down-to-earth and so so wonderful. Isn't she beautiful? So full of LIFE.

Agatha Christie's, An Autobiography, is an excellent read. Unlike most books of this type, it is not chronological in the true sense of the word. It's almost as if Dame Agatha is talking to you personally about her life. She jumps from one topic to another much as one would in an ordinary conversation. Thoroughly entertaining!

I can`t say nothing more than this word, this book is really amazing. Her life is unbelievable, passionate, beautiful, she was so intelligent, so normal that you can`t belive it. When you read it, you feel that she is talking to you. You feel her emotion or crying. SHE WAS AMAZING, WONDERFUL.
