Murder On The Orient Express - Book Review - Incredible Opinions


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.

“I have learned to save myself useless emotion” ― Agatha Christie, Murder On The Orient Express


Did I mention it before that I am a huge Agatha Christie fan? I am saying it now because this is my third book by her and I am still wondering how did she end up writing these amazing murder mysteries and that too in a less than 300 pages book. Murder On The Orient Express is the second most loved book by her and rightly so.

A train. A Murder. Multiple suspects. Each suspect has its motive to murder the victim. There is an alibi for everyone. Who is the murderer? Hercules Poirot knows and it is mind-boggling to follow the journey on the Orient Express with Hercules to find the murderer.

I felt like a detective myself following the leads but I wish I could be as sharp as Christie was! I read this book as a standalone in Hercules Poirot series. Now, I am excited to read more in this series.

Agatha Christie’s language is very clean. I have yet to read a book with numerous characters and yet non-confusing. Agatha does it every time for me. Her books have so many characters but they never tend to confuse the reader. All in all, I am impressed by her ingenuity again!

If you love classics, murder mysteries and plot settings on a train, grab this one!
