“The murderer is with us on the train now..”
A classic murder mystery and such an enjoyable read, this was my first time reading an Agatha Christie book but I am very familiar with her work having grown up watching tv adaption of her stories with Poirot and his quirky moustache being one of my favourites. Of course I have to give some credit to Doctor Who for letting me in on the mysteries of Agatha’s own life and her famous disappearance. I certainly would like to read more of her books. This was easy to follow even with the bits of French in it and could easily be read in a few hours but as I had a busy week I contented myself with just a few chapters a day and enjoyed the experience. Certainly a fun element was reading it while I was actually on a train and immediately became suspicious of everyone. My daughter who is nearly 10 enjoys a good mystery and also took an interest in it and wants to read it now as well which I’m very pleased about. Definitely a classic to share with others.
“Just after midnight, a snowdrift stops the Orient Express in its tracks. The luxurious train is surprisingly full for the time of the year, but by the morning it is one passenger fewer. An American tycoon lies dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the inside.
Isolated and with a killer in their midst, detective Hercule Poirot must identify the murderer – in case he or she decides to strike again.”
Can you recommend any more of Agatha’s books for me to read I’m not sure where to start?
