Genre: Crime Fiction 

Rate: 5 stars 


Just after midnight, the famous Orient Express is stopped in its tracks by a snowdrift. By morning, the millionaire Simon Ratchett lies dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the inside. One of his fellow passengers must be the murderer. 

Isolated by the storm and with a killer in their midst, detective Hercule Poirot must find the killer amongst a dozen of the dead man’s enemies, before the murderer decides to strike again 

My Take 

Who killed Simon? How did (s)he do it? Any witnesses? These are some of the questions that ran through my mind while I was reading this book. My second Agatha Christie and I.Loved.It. 

Murder on The Orient Express flows beautifully and Agatha’s writing is just phenomenal! An intricate story woven in only 274 pages, with plot twists that put me on age all through and the ending just blew my mind. 

Hercule Poirot’s way of perception intrigued me and I am actually proud of myself for getting some clues right. The story makes you question everything and 10/10 I highly recommend.
