Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express was a fast-paced novel from start to finish and its pages never failed to capture my attention. The story begins with Hercule Poirot heading to Stamboul in order to catch the train heading to London. I love the character of Hercule Poirot because it was fascinating to read about him putting together the clues from the different passengers on the train. Christie does an amazing job with character creation by showing the different languages each passenger speaks, but still keeping most of the book in English.
This book didn’t leaving me feeling the same way as Flowers for Algernon did, but it was a fun book and it makes you feel like you are Poirot and you’re on the train solving the murder.
I recommend this book to people who want to expand their mental bookshelf, love mystery, who are in a reading slump, or people who have never read an Agatha Christie novel. It’s a short story, so it won’t take too much of your time and once you’ve completed it you can watch the movie and compare the two.
Keep reading books! If you have already read this book or seen the movie or you just want to talk about books then please leave a comment or DM us on instagram! Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day.
