    Throughout my life I have always enjoyed reading mysteries as palette cleansers in between heavier reads. Whether its a contemporary series or historical stand alone, I am intrigued over the prospect of whodunit. Yet, my favorite mystery writer remains the Dame of British crime, Agatha...

    Three women are on the Orient Express on their way to Baghdad. Each one has a secret. Circumstances throw them together, and strong bonds are forged between them. This fictionalised account of an actual train journey that Agatha Christie took imagines what might have happened on th...

    I approached this book not knowing beforehand about the fact that it was a fictional account of Agatha Christie's journey on the Orient express. I was amused by the premise when I began reading. But soon I was invested in the tale. Most of the journey from Calais to Istanbul made fo...

    This wonderful, historical novel, mixes fact and fiction and puts Agatha Christie at the centre of a story based loosely on real life. It is 1928 when Agatha has divorced her husband, Archie, after he told her that he was in love with another woman. She has endured endless press specul...

    I gave this 5 stars on "Audible" so I will do the same here. If I had just read the book it probably would have been a 4/4.5, but the narration by the very talented Justine Eyre was superb, thus the 5 stars. The writing was very good, and the concept of the story and the plot was g...

    3.5 stars Audiobook narrated by Justine Eyre Brief description I have never read any books by Agatha Christie, but this book just sounded as if it was right up my alley. Although the fictionalized story only partially takes place on the Orient Express and it isn't a standard ...

    I didn't have a clue what the book was about when I started to read this book. I thought this book would have some kind of mystery that that would inspire Agatha Christe to write one her mystery books. It wasn't until I had read perhaps half the book that I read the blurb and I'm glad ...

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I am such a huge Agatha Christie fan, she's the #1 author for a reason. Her books are always something I look forward to reading. When I saw this book I was instantly intrigued. Even though this is a fictional account of Agatha's time after her divorce f...

    Of all the films made from Agatha Christie books, Murder on the Orient Express has always been my favorite. In the back of my mind ever since, I have wondered about the train, The Orient Express, as it seemed like an amazing way to see and experience life and history all at once. Th...

    The train ride to Damascus is long. The stoppages and well met along the way both squalid and elegant. The women interesting and troubled. All for various reasons. The book is too long. The travelogue stops both smelly and breath-taking to visuals. The women (our prime three) both ...

    3.5 - just for fun stars. I think Agatha Christie would be delighted to find herself a fictional character involved in an oriental adventure in the company of two other women that she just happened to meet on a train. Ashford's imagination of what might have happened on Agatha's voy...

    This is one of the few books where I did not read the synopsis before reading the book. All I knew of the book was it was a mystery and probably involved Agatha Christie. There were mysterious elements about the lives of the women Christie befriended on the Orient Express but this book...

    I came upon this book while surfing GoodReads on a lazy day. The fact that it features Agatha Christie (though in a hugely fictional role) attracted me, and I started asap. Three strong ladies -Agatha Christie, who is travelling by the Orient Express to escape the sordid details of h...

    Mysteries beyond the Orient Express! Enthralling! Set in 1928, the story opens later years with Agatha Christie, now a grandmother, being visited by a young man. He has with him a photograph of Agatha and two other women. One is his mother. He wants to know more about them, and in d...

    An enjoyable read, partly fact (I think not much fact) and a lot of fiction about Agatha Christie's trip on the Orient Express to Baghdad in 1928 following the divorce from her husband. Makes me want to read Death on the Nile, and Murder on the Orient Express. Loved the movies, never r...

    I liked this book far more than I had expected to. I have not yet read any of Agatha Christie's works, and yet the rich story & character development of this book still made it at least a 4-star read that kept me very engaged! The narration was lovely as well. :) ...

    This book had some interesting parts, but I felt that it wasn't very well written. The first half was pretty good, but it seemed to just peter out at the end. I liked the IDEA of the book better than the actual writing. Still, it kept me going to the end. ...

    This was a WONDERFUL book! I loved the descriptions on the Orient Express, the travel to the Middle East, the characters, I was totally caught up in it all. Its a fantastic book and Im surprised it wasn't published by a well known publisher. They missed out. GREAT BOOK! ...

    **I received a free copy of this book from Lake Union Publishing through NetGalley This book started out a little slow for me and, even with only three main characters, I had some trouble keeping the women and their respective men troubles in order. Really glad I stuck with it thoug...

    This was a WONDERFUL book! I loved the descriptions on the Orient Express, the travel to the Middle East, the characters, I was totally caught up in it all. Its a fantastic book and Im surprised it wasn't published by a well known publisher. They missed out. GREAT BOOK! ...

    **I received a free copy of this book from Lake Union Publishing through NetGalley This book started out a little slow for me and, even with only three main characters, I had some trouble keeping the women and their respective men troubles in order. Really glad I stuck with it thoug...

    There's is a superb amount of historical context and research put into this book, but it is just dreadfully boring to read. I really think that the main issue with this book was that it just tried to cram TOO much into it. As a reader you start out with a weird as crap beginning of ...

    This is one of the few books where I did not read the synopsis before reading the book. All I knew of the book was it was a mystery and probably involved Agatha Christie. There were mysterious elements about the lives of the women Christie befriended on the Orient Express but this book...

    I came upon this book while surfing GoodReads on a lazy day. The fact that it features Agatha Christie (though in a hugely fictional role) attracted me, and I started asap. Three strong ladies -Agatha Christie, who is travelling by the Orient Express to escape the sordid details of h...

    Mysteries beyond the Orient Express! Enthralling! Set in 1928, the story opens later years with Agatha Christie, now a grandmother, being visited by a young man. He has with him a photograph of Agatha and two other women. One is his mother. He wants to know more about them, and in d...

    An enjoyable read, partly fact (I think not much fact) and a lot of fiction about Agatha Christie's trip on the Orient Express to Baghdad in 1928 following the divorce from her husband. Makes me want to read Death on the Nile, and Murder on the Orient Express. Loved the movies, never r...

    I liked this book far more than I had expected to. I have not yet read any of Agatha Christie's works, and yet the rich story & character development of this book still made it at least a 4-star read that kept me very engaged! The narration was lovely as well. :) ...

    This book had some interesting parts, but I felt that it wasn't very well written. The first half was pretty good, but it seemed to just peter out at the end. I liked the IDEA of the book better than the actual writing. Still, it kept me going to the end. ...

    I was a huge Agathe Christie fan as a teenager and in my early teens, and although I have not read much by the author since devouring all her books in my youth, this amazing woman still intrigues me. Therefore I was quite excited when the audiobook version of The Woman on the Orient Ex...

    This was a WONDERFUL book! I loved the descriptions on the Orient Express, the travel to the Middle East, the characters, I was totally caught up in it all. Its a fantastic book and Im surprised it wasn't published by a well known publisher. They missed out. GREAT BOOK! ...

    There's is a superb amount of historical context and research put into this book, but it is just dreadfully boring to read. I really think that the main issue with this book was that it just tried to cram TOO much into it. As a reader you start out with a weird as crap beginning of ...
