One of Agatha Christie’s most famous mysteries, Murder on the Orient Express was inspired by two real-life crimes and the author’s own experience being stranded on the Orient Express during Christmas of 1931. While traveling to Paris, a wealthy American is stabbed to death in his cabin on the Orient Express. With the train stuck in a snowdrift, there is no easy escape for the killer. Fortunately, detective Hercule Poirot is aboard and launches a clever investigation into the curious assortment of passengers, of whom each seems to have a motive.

3.0 My First Agatha Christie's Read

So what compels me to read Murder on the Orient Express? Hype perhaps of the upcoming movie? A few months back my fa...

4.0 Murder on the Orient Express
I won´t be saying much about the story. It´s brilliant and worth every single star of my five star rating back when I read it for the very first time. I had a problem with the narration of this audiobook. Dan Stevens is an excellent narrator and I enjoyed listening to the audiobook. But he simply ...
