Murder on the Orient Express (Hercule Poirot #10) Reviews
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 ...more
You know what I love about this book, Goodreads? You wanna know what makes this book just a downright pleasure to read? It’s just a good old-fashioned murder mystery with no frills, no multiple timelines, not big plot twists, no no no no. It’s not that at all.
It’s just a short little mystery with an overwhelming cast of characters to keep track of, and, gee whiz, are these guys eccentric. And they all could be a suspect.
So here’s how the book breaks down:
There is a murder on the Orient Express ...more
I fear it is impossible to say too much about this book without spoilers. Because of this I will be brief so you can never go back and say, "I would have loved this book, but that Matthew guy from Goodreads ruined it for me!" So, here is my quick but hopefully useful review.
This is a classic mystery. You like mysteries? You have to have to read this!
Characters are great! So much fun meeting and learning about them all.
Current mysteries have nothing on Christie. This is very intricate and very f ...more
Sacrée Agatha Christie!
She was pretty darn amazing.
I must say I never read and so much liked a book with such a boring constant setting. I mean a train? Come on, how exciting can that get? … Apparently, though, it is a great setting for mystery cases! I just now remember watching ‘‘The Tourist’’ with Angelina Jolie, and wasn’t the scene in the train the one that was going to have in impact on everything to come? Yes, it was! Trains are fast, they create blurred lines, and they are filled with st ...more
This was my first Agatha Christie novel and it definitely did not disappoint! I was not expecting that ending, which is obviously a good thing in a murder mystery story, but I am proud of myself for picking up on some other clues. I am so impressed by how she was able to weave this intricate of a story in only 200 pages and I can't wait to pick up another one of her novels in the future!
The lone train chugs down the tract westward, in the cold, dark, winter's night, over a country that no longer exists, from Istanbul,Turkey, to Calais, France, then across the English Channel by boat, for home, a long, tedious, three day trip. For Hercule Poirot, just having successfully wrapped up a case, in Syria, yet he's summoned again to another. No vacation, for the tired man, London calls and he goes...The little Belgian detective (please stop calling him French), is much in demand. Becom ...more
”The train, it is as dangerous as a sea voyage!”
So, this was my first Agatha Christie book and considering how much fun I had while I read it, it definitely won’t be my last. ;-)
Yes, you read correctly and your mind didn’t play tricks on you:
I had F.U.N!!!
I actually enjoyed reading this so much I constantly found myself giggling with delight! *lol* I swear there’s nothing better than a mystery or a puzzle you need to solve and I guess in this particular case it might have even been both! ;-P
I do not like to write reviews of whodunits: you can't do justice to the analysis without explaining what happened in detail, but then it spoils the story for whoever has not read it. So, for those mystery lovers who have not read The Murder on the Orient Express so far, I will post a single line review: Go and read it! This one rocks! What are you waiting for?
Now, the review for fellow mystery and Christie lovers who have read the book(or like me, re-read umpteen number of times till the pages ...more
