Murder on the Orient Express – a Tiny Book Review

Murder on the Orient Express is a book from 1934, written by Agatha Christie. It is the tenth book (counting with a couple of short stories collections) about the detective Hercule Poirot.

Hercule Poirot is finding himself on the Orient Express, heading back home. But during the train’s route, they get stuck in a snowbank in the middle of the night and are unable to move. At the same time, one of the passengers are brutally murdered in his compartment! But none of the other travelers are admitting to a crime…

I love Agatha Christie. I love her writing style, and I love Poirot. Murder on the Orient Express is a very easy book to read, and the story is intriguing and interesting. I love crime books where the guilty-of-charge doesn’t get exposed until the very end, keeping the reader guessing.

The reading challenge: One point – a book that is becoming a movie in 2017. Apparently there’s a remake of this story, although I don’t see the need for it. (I will probably still watch it though.)
