    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...

    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 ...
