Istanbul, midwinter. Poirot decides to take the Orient Express that at this time makes its route practically empty. The next morning, when he wakes up, he discovers that an American, named Ratcher, has been murdered. The murderer, no doubt, is one of the occupants among which are a proud Russian princess and an English governess. Poirot was present when Jane talked about “getting rid of” her husband, and has even been asked to help her get a divorce. Now, man has died. And yet, the Belgian detective can not help feeling that circumstances do not quite fit. After all, how could Jane murder her husband in the library at exactly the same time she was seen dining with friends? And what can be your mobile when the aristocrat had finally granted him a divorce? Just after midnight, a snowstorm stopped the Orient Express on its march. The luxurious train was surprisingly full for the time of year. But at the end of the night there was one passenger less. An American lay dead in his cabin, stabbed a dozen times and with the door closed from the inside. With the tension increasing, it is Hercule Poirot’s turn to find not one, but two solutions to the case … ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ was taken to the cinema with great success.

I loved this book I loved this book. Read it for a book club after seeing the movie. The book had details not in the movie ( of course ). I enjoyed the book. First time in my life to read Agatha Christie and I will read more of her books in the future.

Mayor says:

Great Book, read it I read the book in one day and you absolutely need to read the book if you saw the movie they don’t end the same way. The book is better than the movie, so what’s new.

Philip Dorian says:

Muh ado about very little… Stopped reading about half-way in. Dry, repetitious story-telling. Okay, I’m obviously not an Agatha Christie fan – except for the play “The Mousetrap,” whose ending I wouldn’t tell if you water-boarded me!
