Review: Murder on the Orient Express

Murder on the Orient Express
Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 stars to Agatha Christie‘s Murder on the Orient Express. I chose to read this Christie spectacular after finishing “And There Were None.” She’s such a treasure – never disappoints.

A train. A murder. Multiple suspects. Nearly an alibi for everyone. But wait, there’s a motive for everyone. How did this seemingly impossible murder occur? Hercule Poirot knows.

Well, I’m glad he did because I was stumped! But with good reason as this plot twist will have your knickers locked down (and not just in a bunch!).

The plot is just too delicious. The characters are just fascinating. No modern day electronics. No ability to research anything other than by asking questions. And Christie wrote this nearly 100 years ago. That’s why it’s a 5 for me — it’s pure good storytelling without anything in the way.

    Murder on the Orient Express was the first Poirot story I was introduced to (I watched the 1974 movie), and since then, I’ve been hooked! I’ve read several short stories, as well as watched the majority of the TV show. 🙂 Each plot is brilliant.
