“What more can a mystery addict desire than a much-loathed murder victim found aboard the luxurious Orient Express with multiple stab wounds, thirteen likely suspects, an incomparably brilliant detective in Hercule Poirot, and the most ingenious crime ever conceived?”
Author: Agatha Christie
Publisher: Harper Collins
My Review: 🌟🌟🌟🌟.5
It is impossible to say anything about the book without giving out any spoilers so I have decided to write a gist which won’t spill the beans. A murder takes place in a train named Orient Express travelling from Istanbul to London which gets stuck due to snowfall, but luckily Hercule Poirot is present among the travellers to unveil the murderer.The story is set in 1934 and we can’t expect any high-tech means of communications for outside help, only Hercule Poirot’s mind can save anyone else from getting killed. The plot is intruiging and keeps you guessing till the end. With a lot of suspects and a considerable alibi for evey one the mystery gets interesting and keeps you on the edge of your seat.
Overall it was a excellent read with great plots and twists which puts your grey cells on work. Agatha Christie’s writing style is gripping which has made her books age like fine wine. The way she interlinks the characters with an unexpected climax is a treat for mystery lovers. Hercule Poirot is at his best and keeps us engaged with his brilliant invesgitation. I would highly recommend this book to all my fellow readers.
