    When all the other little girls wanted to be princesses - do you know what I wanted to be? And no, it wasn't a vampire, either... it was... HERCULE POIROT'S SIDEKICK!!! The fact that I actually took the time to edit my face into that picture should tell you something abou...

    This was my first Agatha Christie novel and it definitely did not disappoint! I was not expecting that ending, which is obviously a good thing in a murder mystery story, but I am proud of myself for picking up on some other clues. I am so impressed by how she was able to weave this int...

    5 stars to Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express. I chose to read this Christie spectacular after finishing "And There Were None." She's such a treasure - never disappoints. A train. A murder. Multiple suspects. Nearly an alibi for everyone. But wait, there's a motive for e...

    I?m pretty astounded by how much fun this was. I mean, this may be just me, but ?early-to-mid-twentieth century mystery about train crime? doesn?t exactly scream nonstop thrill ride. But here we are! I?m also not sure why it took me so long to write this review (two mo...

    If you're on a train (or boat, or island), planning to commit a nice, unsolvable murder, and you find out Hercule Poirot is one of the guests . . . Just change your plans. That is all. I'd like to know if anyone has ever solved this particular murder mystery. It's mind-boggling,...

    ?The train, it is as dangerous as a sea voyage!? So, this was my first Agatha Christie book and considering how much fun I had while I read it, it definitely won?t be my last. ;-) Yes, you read correctly and your mind didn?t play tricks on you: I had F.U.N!!! I a...

    Sacrée Agatha Christie! She was pretty darn amazing. I must say I never read and so much liked a book with such a boring constant setting. I mean a train? Come on, how exciting can that get? ? Apparently, though, it is a great setting for mystery cases! I just now remember w...

    Wahoo! I'm finally going to read a Poirot book! I have the complete blu-ray box set and love this series so much! And now I get start on one of the books! =) ? The wonderful Hercule Poirot can not ever go on any holidays without someone being murdered. But, never-the-less ...

    Well, ladies and gentlemen. That was fantastic! I mean, what can I say? Agatha Christie was a genius. So is David Suchet who narrated the audiobook (and played Poirot in the TV show). This story is set on a filled to capacity train, heading from Stamboul (Istanbul) to London. It's t...

    ??Some crimes God does not forgive!?? Last week, I watched (for the gazillionth time?) ITV?s 2010 production of ??Murder on the Orient Express?? with the inimitable David Suchet in the role of our beloved Hercule Poirot and it prompted certain thoughts in my mi...

    I fear it is impossible to say too much about this book without spoilers. Because of this I will be brief so you can never go back and say, "I would have loved this book, but that Matthew guy from Goodreads ruined it for me!" So, here is my quick but hopefully useful review. This is...

    A train stopped at midnight in the snow. A dead body found in a compartment. Twelve stab wounds leave no doubt it was murder. And Hercule Poirot, tasked with solving the crime, is certain the culprit is a passenger on the Orient Express. The first clue that Murder on the Orie...

    Murder on the Orient Express is one of Agatha Christie's most loved works. Adapted for radio, film and television, most people have some idea to what you are referring when you mention it. A classic whodunit with Christie's signature styling. I adore Hercule Poirot and grew ...

    i cant even begin to tell you how much it bothers me that i had the audacity to start a series with book 10? but ive heard each book can be read as a standalone and this is the most popular poirot story, so i really need to get over it. lol. maybe its because i committed the sin ...

    I read this book mostly in preparation for the 2017 film adaption, but I've always been curious about Agatha Christie. She's been recommended to me multiple different times over the course of my life, but I never felt the time was quite right to pick up one of her novels until now. ...

    If you've never read one of her books, this one sums up the Agatha Christie experience quite nicely. As in: You will never solve her mysteries. Don't bother trying, because it will only infuriate you when you find out that the answer to the whodunnit is something far-fetched & en...

    I have a confession to make. I?ve never read an Agatha Christie novel. Why is this a big deal, you might be asking yourself if you have also never jumped on the Christie train. (Train? Get it? Because this entire book takes place on a train! *laughs forever at own joke*) Well, I?m ...

    Actual rating: 4.5 ? This was my first, but definitely not my last, Agatha Christie book, and I truly loved it! It was a wonderful mystery that kept me guessing the whole way through. I really liked the structure of the novel. Each character getting their own chapter was a geni...

    All aboard to the mystery! WILL THE REAL POIROT PLEASE STAND UP? My visual memory of the famous fictional detective Hercule Poirot is the actor Sir Peter Ustinov, yes, I know, he doesn?t look like he?s described on books (and even according Agatha Christie?s daughter,...

    Okay, how do i start this? Is it possible to be shocked and not shocked at the same time? I mean, that should be a normal reaction for reading this book. Honestly, i don?t know how i?ll make a good review for this but i?ll give it a try. First of all, i?d like to say that th...

    ?But I know human nature, my friend, and I tell you that, suddenly confronted with the possibility of being tried for murder, the most innocent person will lose his head and do the most absurd things.? This was my first ever read of an Agatha Christie novel and my very first for...

    All aboard the murder train! A long time ago when I was in high school and dinosaurs still roamed the earth I read a whole bunch of Agatha Christie novels. The weird thing is that I was never that big of a fan of hers. I was getting into mystery novels, she?s one of the best known...

    The lone train chugs down the tract westward, in the cold, dark, winter's night, over a country that no longer exists, from Istanbul,Turkey, to Calais, France, then across the English Channel by boat, for home, a long, tedious, three day trip. For Hercule Poirot, just having successful...

    Mind blown, Agatha! I enjoyed this but kept trying to figure out why this one is better known and more remembered than Aggie?s others and then? And then? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?? Holy $%!!! I highly recommend the audio for this one; Kenneth Branagh's voice is buttahhh, Baby. ...

    Murder on the Orient Express is my second Agatha Christie novel. The first was The Murder of Roger Ackroyd which I loved and like Murder on the Orient Express I didn't guess the killer. Agatha Christie is The Best-Selling novelist of all time and pretty much invented and perfected the ...

    I do not like to write reviews of whodunits: you can't do justice to the analysis without explaining what happened in detail, but then it spoils the story for whoever has not read it. So, for those mystery lovers who have not read The Murder on the Orient Express so far, I will post a ...

    Finally, I?ve read this book! And now I can see the new movie. Agatha and Poirot are geniuses. ...

    I decided to read this classic Agatha Christie story in anticipation of the new movie starring Kenneth Branagh as Hercule Poirot. I listened to the audiobook, performed by Dan Stevens, and it was a delight. A quick summary: The international detective Poirot is in Istanbul and is e...

    I fear it is impossible to say too much about this book without spoilers. Because of this I will be brief so you can never go back and say, "I would have loved this book, but that Matthew guy from Goodreads ruined it for me!" So, here is my quick but hopefully useful review. This is...

    Murder on the Orient Express is one of Agatha Christie's most loved works. Adapted for radio, film and television, most people have some idea to what you are referring when you mention it. A classic whodunit with Christie's signature styling. I adore Hercule Poirot and grew ...

    i cant even begin to tell you how much it bothers me that i had the audacity to start a series with book 10? but ive heard each book can be read as a standalone and this is the most popular poirot story, so i really need to get over it. lol. maybe its because i committed the sin ...

    I read this book mostly in preparation for the 2017 film adaption, but I've always been curious about Agatha Christie. She's been recommended to me multiple different times over the course of my life, but I never felt the time was quite right to pick up one of her novels until now. ...

    If you've never read one of her books, this one sums up the Agatha Christie experience quite nicely. As in: You will never solve her mysteries. Don't bother trying, because it will only infuriate you when you find out that the answer to the whodunnit is something far-fetched & en...

    I have a confession to make. I?ve never read an Agatha Christie novel. Why is this a big deal, you might be asking yourself if you have also never jumped on the Christie train. (Train? Get it? Because this entire book takes place on a train! *laughs forever at own joke*) Well, I?m ...

    Actual rating: 4.5 ? This was my first, but definitely not my last, Agatha Christie book, and I truly loved it! It was a wonderful mystery that kept me guessing the whole way through. I really liked the structure of the novel. Each character getting their own chapter was a geni...

    5 stars to Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express. I chose to read this Christie spectacular after finishing "And There Were None." She's such a treasure - never disappoints. A train. A murder. Multiple suspects. Nearly an alibi for everyone. But wait, there's a motive for e...

    I?m pretty astounded by how much fun this was. I mean, this may be just me, but ?early-to-mid-twentieth century mystery about train crime? doesn?t exactly scream nonstop thrill ride. But here we are! I?m also not sure why it took me so long to write this review (two mo...

    Sacrée Agatha Christie! She was pretty darn amazing. I must say I never read and so much liked a book with such a boring constant setting. I mean a train? Come on, how exciting can that get? ? Apparently, though, it is a great setting for mystery cases! I just now remember w...

    Mind blown, Agatha! I enjoyed this but kept trying to figure out why this one is better known and more remembered than Aggie?s others and then? And then? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?? Holy $%!!! I highly recommend the audio for this one; Kenneth Branagh's voice is buttahhh, Baby. ...

    I do not like to write reviews of whodunits: you can't do justice to the analysis without explaining what happened in detail, but then it spoils the story for whoever has not read it. So, for those mystery lovers who have not read The Murder on the Orient Express so far, I will post a ...

    5 stars to Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express. I chose to read this Christie spectacular after finishing "And There Were None." She's such a treasure - never disappoints. A train. A murder. Multiple suspects. Nearly an alibi for everyone. But wait, there's a motive for e...

    I?m pretty astounded by how much fun this was. I mean, this may be just me, but ?early-to-mid-twentieth century mystery about train crime? doesn?t exactly scream nonstop thrill ride. But here we are! I?m also not sure why it took me so long to write this review (two mo...

    If you're on a train (or boat, or island), planning to commit a nice, unsolvable murder, and you find out Hercule Poirot is one of the guests . . . Just change your plans. That is all. I'd like to know if anyone has ever solved this particular murder mystery. It's mind-boggling,...

    Sacrée Agatha Christie! She was pretty darn amazing. I must say I never read and so much liked a book with such a boring constant setting. I mean a train? Come on, how exciting can that get? ? Apparently, though, it is a great setting for mystery cases! I just now remember w...

    Well, ladies and gentlemen. That was fantastic! I mean, what can I say? Agatha Christie was a genius. So is David Suchet who narrated the audiobook (and played Poirot in the TV show). This story is set on a filled to capacity train, heading from Stamboul (Istanbul) to London. It's t...

    Murder on the Orient Express is one of Agatha Christie's most loved works. Adapted for radio, film and television, most people have some idea to what you are referring when you mention it. A classic whodunit with Christie's signature styling. I adore Hercule Poirot and grew ...

    i cant even begin to tell you how much it bothers me that i had the audacity to start a series with book 10? but ive heard each book can be read as a standalone and this is the most popular poirot story, so i really need to get over it. lol. maybe its because i committed the sin ...

    If you've never read one of her books, this one sums up the Agatha Christie experience quite nicely. As in: You will never solve her mysteries. Don't bother trying, because it will only infuriate you when you find out that the answer to the whodunnit is something far-fetched & en...

    I have a confession to make. I?ve never read an Agatha Christie novel. Why is this a big deal, you might be asking yourself if you have also never jumped on the Christie train. (Train? Get it? Because this entire book takes place on a train! *laughs forever at own joke*) Well, I?m ...

    Actual rating: 4.5 ? This was my first, but definitely not my last, Agatha Christie book, and I truly loved it! It was a wonderful mystery that kept me guessing the whole way through. I really liked the structure of the novel. Each character getting their own chapter was a geni...

    All aboard to the mystery! WILL THE REAL POIROT PLEASE STAND UP? My visual memory of the famous fictional detective Hercule Poirot is the actor Sir Peter Ustinov, yes, I know, he doesn?t look like he?s described on books (and even according Agatha Christie?s daughter,...

    Okay, how do i start this? Is it possible to be shocked and not shocked at the same time? I mean, that should be a normal reaction for reading this book. Honestly, i don?t know how i?ll make a good review for this but i?ll give it a try. First of all, i?d like to say that th...

    The lone train chugs down the tract westward, in the cold, dark, winter's night, over a country that no longer exists, from Istanbul,Turkey, to Calais, France, then across the English Channel by boat, for home, a long, tedious, three day trip. For Hercule Poirot, just having successful...

    Mind blown, Agatha! I enjoyed this but kept trying to figure out why this one is better known and more remembered than Aggie?s others and then? And then? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?? Holy $%!!! I highly recommend the audio for this one; Kenneth Branagh's voice is buttahhh, Baby. ...

    Murder on the Orient Express is my second Agatha Christie novel. The first was The Murder of Roger Ackroyd which I loved and like Murder on the Orient Express I didn't guess the killer. Agatha Christie is The Best-Selling novelist of all time and pretty much invented and perfected the ...

    I do not like to write reviews of whodunits: you can't do justice to the analysis without explaining what happened in detail, but then it spoils the story for whoever has not read it. So, for those mystery lovers who have not read The Murder on the Orient Express so far, I will post a ...

    Finally, I?ve read this book! And now I can see the new movie. Agatha and Poirot are geniuses. ...

    I decided to read this classic Agatha Christie story in anticipation of the new movie starring Kenneth Branagh as Hercule Poirot. I listened to the audiobook, performed by Dan Stevens, and it was a delight. A quick summary: The international detective Poirot is in Istanbul and is e...

    ?The impossible could not have happened, therefore the impossible must be possible in spite of appearances.? I just realized that I've never written a review for this. Must have slipped my mind. Maybe because I'm so excited to see the movie adaption with Judi Dench, Rooney Mara ...

    All right, someone needs to tell this Janie-come-lately hack Agatha Christie to stop cribbing a page from the Snakes on a Plane handbook with her titles. Who does she think she is, infringing on the territory of the redoubtable Samuel L. Jackson? Good luck having a future in this b...

    When all the other little girls wanted to be princesses - do you know what I wanted to be? And no, it wasn't a vampire, either... it was... HERCULE POIROT'S SIDEKICK!!! The fact that I actually took the time to edit my face into that picture should tell you something abou...

    This was my first Agatha Christie novel and it definitely did not disappoint! I was not expecting that ending, which is obviously a good thing in a murder mystery story, but I am proud of myself for picking up on some other clues. I am so impressed by how she was able to weave this int...

    5 stars to Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express. I chose to read this Christie spectacular after finishing "And There Were None." She's such a treasure - never disappoints. A train. A murder. Multiple suspects. Nearly an alibi for everyone. But wait, there's a motive for e...

    I?m pretty astounded by how much fun this was. I mean, this may be just me, but ?early-to-mid-twentieth century mystery about train crime? doesn?t exactly scream nonstop thrill ride. But here we are! I?m also not sure why it took me so long to write this review (two mo...

    If you're on a train (or boat, or island), planning to commit a nice, unsolvable murder, and you find out Hercule Poirot is one of the guests . . . Just change your plans. That is all. I'd like to know if anyone has ever solved this particular murder mystery. It's mind-boggling,...

    ?The train, it is as dangerous as a sea voyage!? So, this was my first Agatha Christie book and considering how much fun I had while I read it, it definitely won?t be my last. ;-) Yes, you read correctly and your mind didn?t play tricks on you: I had F.U.N!!! I a...

    Sacrée Agatha Christie! She was pretty darn amazing. I must say I never read and so much liked a book with such a boring constant setting. I mean a train? Come on, how exciting can that get? ? Apparently, though, it is a great setting for mystery cases! I just now remember w...

    Wahoo! I'm finally going to read a Poirot book! I have the complete blu-ray box set and love this series so much! And now I get start on one of the books! =) ? The wonderful Hercule Poirot can not ever go on any holidays without someone being murdered. But, never-the-less ...

    Well, ladies and gentlemen. That was fantastic! I mean, what can I say? Agatha Christie was a genius. So is David Suchet who narrated the audiobook (and played Poirot in the TV show). This story is set on a filled to capacity train, heading from Stamboul (Istanbul) to London. It's t...

    I fear it is impossible to say too much about this book without spoilers. Because of this I will be brief so you can never go back and say, "I would have loved this book, but that Matthew guy from Goodreads ruined it for me!" So, here is my quick but hopefully useful review. This is...

    A train stopped at midnight in the snow. A dead body found in a compartment. Twelve stab wounds leave no doubt it was murder. And Hercule Poirot, tasked with solving the crime, is certain the culprit is a passenger on the Orient Express. The first clue that Murder on the Orie...

    Murder on the Orient Express is one of Agatha Christie's most loved works. Adapted for radio, film and television, most people have some idea to what you are referring when you mention it. A classic whodunit with Christie's signature styling. I adore Hercule Poirot and grew ...

    i cant even begin to tell you how much it bothers me that i had the audacity to start a series with book 10? but ive heard each book can be read as a standalone and this is the most popular poirot story, so i really need to get over it. lol. maybe its because i committed the sin ...

    I read this book mostly in preparation for the 2017 film adaption, but I've always been curious about Agatha Christie. She's been recommended to me multiple different times over the course of my life, but I never felt the time was quite right to pick up one of her novels until now. ...

    If you've never read one of her books, this one sums up the Agatha Christie experience quite nicely. As in: You will never solve her mysteries. Don't bother trying, because it will only infuriate you when you find out that the answer to the whodunnit is something far-fetched & en...

    I have a confession to make. I?ve never read an Agatha Christie novel. Why is this a big deal, you might be asking yourself if you have also never jumped on the Christie train. (Train? Get it? Because this entire book takes place on a train! *laughs forever at own joke*) Well, I?m ...

    Actual rating: 4.5 ? This was my first, but definitely not my last, Agatha Christie book, and I truly loved it! It was a wonderful mystery that kept me guessing the whole way through. I really liked the structure of the novel. Each character getting their own chapter was a geni...

    All aboard to the mystery! WILL THE REAL POIROT PLEASE STAND UP? My visual memory of the famous fictional detective Hercule Poirot is the actor Sir Peter Ustinov, yes, I know, he doesn?t look like he?s described on books (and even according Agatha Christie?s daughter,...

    Okay, how do i start this? Is it possible to be shocked and not shocked at the same time? I mean, that should be a normal reaction for reading this book. Honestly, i don?t know how i?ll make a good review for this but i?ll give it a try. First of all, i?d like to say that th...

    ?But I know human nature, my friend, and I tell you that, suddenly confronted with the possibility of being tried for murder, the most innocent person will lose his head and do the most absurd things.? This was my first ever read of an Agatha Christie novel and my very first for...

    All aboard the murder train! A long time ago when I was in high school and dinosaurs still roamed the earth I read a whole bunch of Agatha Christie novels. The weird thing is that I was never that big of a fan of hers. I was getting into mystery novels, she?s one of the best known...

    The lone train chugs down the tract westward, in the cold, dark, winter's night, over a country that no longer exists, from Istanbul,Turkey, to Calais, France, then across the English Channel by boat, for home, a long, tedious, three day trip. For Hercule Poirot, just having successful...

    Mind blown, Agatha! I enjoyed this but kept trying to figure out why this one is better known and more remembered than Aggie?s others and then? And then? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?? Holy $%!!! I highly recommend the audio for this one; Kenneth Branagh's voice is buttahhh, Baby. ...

    Murder on the Orient Express is my second Agatha Christie novel. The first was The Murder of Roger Ackroyd which I loved and like Murder on the Orient Express I didn't guess the killer. Agatha Christie is The Best-Selling novelist of all time and pretty much invented and perfected the ...

    Wahoo! I'm finally going to read a Poirot book! I have the complete blu-ray box set and love this series so much! And now I get start on one of the books! =) ? The wonderful Hercule Poirot can not ever go on any holidays without someone being murdered. But, never-the-less ...

    Well, ladies and gentlemen. That was fantastic! I mean, what can I say? Agatha Christie was a genius. So is David Suchet who narrated the audiobook (and played Poirot in the TV show). This story is set on a filled to capacity train, heading from Stamboul (Istanbul) to London. It's t...

    ??Some crimes God does not forgive!?? Last week, I watched (for the gazillionth time?) ITV?s 2010 production of ??Murder on the Orient Express?? with the inimitable David Suchet in the role of our beloved Hercule Poirot and it prompted certain thoughts in my mi...

    I fear it is impossible to say too much about this book without spoilers. Because of this I will be brief so you can never go back and say, "I would have loved this book, but that Matthew guy from Goodreads ruined it for me!" So, here is my quick but hopefully useful review. This is...

    A train stopped at midnight in the snow. A dead body found in a compartment. Twelve stab wounds leave no doubt it was murder. And Hercule Poirot, tasked with solving the crime, is certain the culprit is a passenger on the Orient Express. The first clue that Murder on the Orie...

    Murder on the Orient Express is one of Agatha Christie's most loved works. Adapted for radio, film and television, most people have some idea to what you are referring when you mention it. A classic whodunit with Christie's signature styling. I adore Hercule Poirot and grew ...

    When all the other little girls wanted to be princesses - do you know what I wanted to be? And no, it wasn't a vampire, either... it was... HERCULE POIROT'S SIDEKICK!!! The fact that I actually took the time to edit my face into that picture should tell you something abou...

    This was my first Agatha Christie novel and it definitely did not disappoint! I was not expecting that ending, which is obviously a good thing in a murder mystery story, but I am proud of myself for picking up on some other clues. I am so impressed by how she was able to weave this int...

    5 stars to Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express. I chose to read this Christie spectacular after finishing "And There Were None." She's such a treasure - never disappoints. A train. A murder. Multiple suspects. Nearly an alibi for everyone. But wait, there's a motive for e...

    I?m pretty astounded by how much fun this was. I mean, this may be just me, but ?early-to-mid-twentieth century mystery about train crime? doesn?t exactly scream nonstop thrill ride. But here we are! I?m also not sure why it took me so long to write this review (two mo...

    If you're on a train (or boat, or island), planning to commit a nice, unsolvable murder, and you find out Hercule Poirot is one of the guests . . . Just change your plans. That is all. I'd like to know if anyone has ever solved this particular murder mystery. It's mind-boggling,...
