What more can a mystery addict desire than a much-loathed murder victim found aboard the luxurious Orient Express with multiple stab wounds, thirteen likely suspects, an incomparably brilliant detective in Hercule Poirot, and the most ingenious crime ever conceived?

Review: Bleh definitely wouldn't have picked this one up myself. Only read it for a challenge that required a train on the cover, which didn't leave me much option. I think I need to watch the movie now though XD Even though I didn't pay much attention in the middle, I know the ending. Don't see how it could become movie-length though, but hey guess I'll find out.
The narrator was exceptional, I have to say. All of the different nationalities and accents, tone of voice, gender. It was all done so well. And it didn't even matter that it was #10 in a series. I just ignored that fact. Normally that's something I cannot do, but it didn't make a difference. Not my kind of story.

Karen Barber | 11321 comments First few chapters feels like pulling on a familiar item of clothing. Never read the book but feel I can imagine it perfectly.


Karen Barber | 11321 comments End of part two. Surprised by the attitudes expressed here, and the casual laying of a false trail is rather expertly done.


Karen Barber | 11321 comments Got confused with my chapters! Up to ch9 of part two. The interviews are interesting and I’m aware that crucial information is being laid here, but it’s not immediately apparent.


Karen Barber | 11321 comments Finished. Jill, I can’t wait to see what you make of this. I haven’t read much by Agatha Christie, and there are elements about it that bother me. However, as a mystery it’s done well, and I am curious to see how this would be filmed.

Isolated settings are my favourite, in thrillers. I love the claustrophobic feelings and the limited cast of characters, as it really enhances the atmosphere for me.

Oh me too! It definitely adds to the suspense. Some of my favourite thrillers have had isolated settings, so yeah I love it!

It was such a good last quarter. I thought it was impossible that everything was going to come together s neatly, yet somehow it did. I have liked every Chrisite novel I have read but this is definitely one of my top three.

Let me know if you want to read any more of her work this month as this has got me in the mood for some classic crime :)
