They Came to Baghdad - Agatha Christie

‘I’ve had A Midsummer Night’s Dream translated into forty different languages,’ said Dr Rathbone. ‘Forty different sets of young people all reacting to the same wonderful piece of literature. Young people—that’s the secret. I’ve no use for anybody but the young. Once the mind and spirit are muscle-bound, it’s too late. No, it’s the young who must get together.


Uh, oh.

Please, please, please, book, don't turn into Passenger to Frankfurt!

The mention of an organisation trying to influence the young just gave me flashbacks to that one - one of the worst books ever written.


I'm kinda scared now. I still can't get over that Christie may have written a spy thriller that hasn't turned bat-shit crazy, yet.
