Murder on the Orient Express (Hercule Poirot #10) Reviews
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
”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
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:

i forget where i saw this information, but reading something online, possibly about another christie title, it gave the quickest blurb on and then there were none (which i had already read), and murder on the orient express. at the time i didn't even know i'd be reading this (this is for an irl book club next week), but once i learned we would i was thinking, "great, i pretty much know the deal."
that is not the reason i did not enjoy this ti ...more
I by rule of thumb will not give a mystery 5 stars so this one gets a 4.5 because Hercule Poirot's Murder on the Orient Express by the grand dame of mysteries Agatha Christie is no ordinary mystery. I read this back in high school and decided to pick it up when I saw "read a book you read in high school" on my public library's reading challenge this year. I have enjoyed Poirot pretty much since I was old enough to read on my own. Christie goes deep into her characters and just when you think you ...more
If you're on a train (or boat, or island), planning to commit a nice, unsolvable murder, and you find out Hercule Poirot is one of the guests . . . Just change your plans. That is all.
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.
Actual rating: 4.5 🌟
This was my first, but definitely not my last, Agatha Christie book, and I truly loved it!
It was a wonderful mystery that kept me guessing the whole way through.
I really liked the structure of the novel. Each character getting their own chapter was a genius idea, it really helped me to get to know them. All of them seemed realistic and well developed, which was surprising, considering the amount of people and the rather short length of the book.
The writing style was very atmo ...more
