Murder on the Orient Express (Hercule Poirot #10) Reviews
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
Well, ladies and gentlemen. That was fantastic! I mean, what can I say? Agatha Christie was a genius. So is David Suchet who narrated the audiobook (and played Poirot in the TV show).
This story is set on a filled to capacity train, heading from Stamboul (Istanbul) to London. It's the middle of winter and the snow has built up on the tracks and forced the train to a standstill on it's way through Yugoslavia (an area that is now in Croatia). This is when the murder is discovered, which luckily for ...more
قاعدة ما قبل قراءة الروايات البوليسية رقم ١ :
لا تقرأ الريفيوهات

لا تقرأ الريفيوهات و إلا ستندم -_-
I’m pretty astounded by how much fun this was.
I mean, this may be just me, but “early-to-mid-twentieth century mystery about train crime” doesn’t exactly scream nonstop thrill ride. But here we are!
I’m also not sure why it took me so long to write this review (two months, to be exact, so actually not that long for me but still) but again, here we are.
I don’t actually really want to say much on this book, which is astounding in its own right because my number one hobby is making up various excus ...more
“The impossible could not have happened, therefore the impossible must be possible in spite of appearances.”
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
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!
of COURSE i made a list for this one!
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
A train stopped at midnight in the snow.
A dead body found in a compartment.
Twelve stab wounds leave no doubt it was murder.
And Hercule Poirot, tasked with solving the crime, is certain the culprit is a passenger on the Orient Express.
The first clue that Murder on the Orient express will be a laborious read arrives shortly after the murder victim is discovered. Among the clues is a scrap of paper which reads (view spoiler)[ “– member little Daisy Armstrong.” (hide spoiler)] From this clue, Po ...more
