HERCULE POIROT'S SIDEKICK!!!
The fact that I actually took the time to edit my face into that picture should tell you something about a) my Poirot love, and b) the kind of hopelessly boring day I have suffered through :D

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
I'd like to know if anyone has ever solved this particular murder mystery. It's mind-boggling, and deservedly one of Agatha Christie's better-known books.
Wahoo! I'm finally going to read a Poirot book! I have the complete blu-ray box set and love this series so much! And now I get start on one of the books! =) ♥
The wonderful Hercule Poirot can not ever go on any holidays without someone being murdered. But, never-the-less he will figure it out.
And a murder has taken place upon the Orient Express.
The man murdered in named Ratchett, but we find out later on in the story this is an alias. Poirot has simply uncovered that the murderer is on the tra ...more
Last week, I watched (for the gazillionth time…) ITV’s 2010 production of ‘’Murder on the Orient Express’’ with the inimitable David Suchet in the role of our beloved Hercule Poirot and it prompted certain thoughts in my mind. Why is this considered one of Christie’s finest creations? Many say that, arguably, it is her best work and this view I do share.
I don’t think any of us need a synopsis. To say the story is well-known would be an understatement. Even ...more

my hobbies include: hopping on bandwagons
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
As in: You will never solve her mysteries.
Don't bother trying, because it will only infuriate you when you find out that the answer to the whodunnit is something far-fetched & entirely unbelievable.
Roll with it, I say! Just trust that the little Belgian detective will eventually make everything all right, and settle in for a cute (albeit old-timey) mystery.

WILL THE REAL POIROT PLEASE STAND UP?
My visual memory of the famous fictional detective Hercule Poirot is the actor Sir Peter Ustinov, yes, I know, he doesn’t look like he’s described on books (and even according Agatha Christie’s daughter, he doesn’t behave on screen like the book detective) but when I was a kid, I’ve never read any Agatha Christie’s novels, meanwhile I have watched several of the theatrical films and TV movies made by Peter Ustinov and along with ...more

A quick summary: The international detective Poirot is in Istanbul and is eager to get back to London. Thanks to help from a friend, he gets the last berth on the Orient Express, which was full of passengers. On the second night of the trip, a man is murdered, and tensions rise when the train ...more
I just realized that I've never written a review for this. Must have slipped my mind. Maybe because I'm so excited to see the movie adaption with Judi Dench, Rooney Mara and Daisy Ridley.
Anyway, this wasn't what I had expected, and then again it was. Now, whenever I saw this book on here or in a bookshop I pictured a very diverse and interesting cast of characters and a classic murder myst ...more
Who does she think she is, infringing on the territory of the redoubtable Samuel L. Jackson? Good luck having a future in this business, lady, with those kinds of backdoor shenanigans.*
There’s no way this stakes**-on-a-train whodunit is going to register as more than a blip on the mystery-reading public’s consciousness, given that the bumbling ...more
LOCKED ROOM MYSTERIES FOR FANS OF MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS
*A locked room gathers many corpses. But HOW??*
Murder on the Orient Express is one of Agatha Christie's most revered books for a reason. She uses the trope of the locked room mystery as a foundation and then further heightens the "impossible" crime by situating that locked room on a moving train. If that's not enough reinventing of the old mystery wheel for one day, her solution is also a bit of a ...more
Earth, 1930-something: The Doctor is enjoying a quiet train ride across Europe after an exciting adventure in Constantinople (involving a staring contest between a Dalek and a Weeping Angel) when a fellow passenger is murdered. With the train stopped by heavy snows, and the TARDIS nowhere in sight, the Doctor must use all his timey-wimey cunning to solve...THE MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS! And stop the universe from blowing up, again.
Oh, c'mon, you know they're going to do that story e ...more

The Publisher Says: Just after midnight, a snowdrift stopped the Orient Express in its tracks. The luxurious train was surprisingly full for the time of the year. But by the morning there was one passenger fewer. A passenger lay dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the inside.
My Review: Well, that was a concise-to-the-point-of-terseness summary. But I suspect most of us who are voracious or even ...more
The dandified Detective Hercule Poirot (and his curlicue mustache) just happened to be traveling on a three day journey across Europe on the resplendent Orient Express when the train is detained by a snowdrift; and all seems well otherwise, that is, until morning when millionaire Samuel Rachett is found dead as a doornail in his compartment with multiple stab wounds.

Monsieur Poirot is full of nuggets of wisdom like that, often leaving his listeners completely nonplussed.
