    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 wasHERCULE POIROT'S SIDEKICKThe fact that I actually took the time to edit my face into that picture should tell you something about a my Poirot love and b the kind of hopelessly boring day I have suffered through D

    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 intricate of a story in only 200 pages and I can't wait to pick up another one of her novels in the future

    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 disappointsA train A murder Multiple suspects Nearly an alibi for everyone But wait there's a motive for everyone How did this seemingly impossible murder occur? Hercule Poirot knowsWell I'm glad he did because I was stumped But with good reason as this plot twist will have your knickers locked down and not just in a bunchThe plot is just too delicious The characters are just fascinating No modern day electronics No ability to research anything other than by asking uestions And Christie wrote this nearly 100 years ago That's why it's a 5 for me it's pure good storytelling without anything in the way

    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 allI'd like to know if anyone has ever solved this particular murder mystery It's mind boggling and deservedly one of Agatha Christie's better known books

    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 areI’m also not sure why it took me so long to write this review two months to be exact so actually not that long for me but still but again here we areI don’t actually really want to say much on this book which is astounding in its own right because my number one hobby is making up various excuses for me to wax romantic on various subjects and generally listen to myselfBut In this case that would be bad Because a lot of the rad ness of this book is due to the twist but the Last Thing I Ever Want To Do is spoil this twist for you Maybe this book will not sound fun because of my saintly consideration of your twist enjoyment but you should just tuck away in your head that it’s completely cool ok???Let’s discuss the very limited number of things I won’t feel bad about disclosingFor one thing the way this is constructed is very fun?? It takes you through the thought process of Hercule Poirot Extremely Cool Belgian Detective capitalized due to its being his official government ordained title as he analyzes the sitch So it kind of feels like you’re a detective too and if that’s not the dream I don’t know what isIf you can look me in the eyes but please don’t I’d like to keep these relationships strictly internet based thanks and tell me you wouldn’t drop everything immediately in order to become a detective andor international spy full time you are not someone I’m interested in knowing thanksAgatha Christie’s writing style is also really sharp and clean which I can detect but nevereverever apply to myself apparently That’s probably why her books aged so well This one definitely did at leastI think some people were rubbed the wrong way horrific expression my apologies by the constant discussion of racenationality as an inherent and generalized part of people’s individual psychology That would’ve upset me probably if it weren’t applied to e v e r y b o d y Like if white people got the easy way out one what else would be new and two that would be the worst ever Instead every point of origin mentioned Africa England America France is given its own psychoanalytic significance Which is honestly interesting to read about if only from a historical standpointAre you guys proud of me for how well I remembered this book after two months??? I am visibly prouder of myself for remembering three things about a novel I genuinely enjoyed than most scientists are after major breakthroughsWhich is incredibly on brand for meBottom line uick fun historical well written I could’ve replaced this whole review with those adjectives and been much convincing PRE REVIEWTHAT WAS AMAZING THAT WAS AMAZING THAT WAS AMAZINGI hope you read that in Aziz Ansari's voice Reevaluate your life if otherwisereview to come yo CURRENTLY READING UPDATEmy hobbies include hopping on bandwagons

    ”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 youI had FUN I actually enjoyed reading this so much I constantly found myself giggling with delight lol I swear there’s nothing better than a mystery or a puzzle you need to solve and I guess in this particular case it might have even been both ; PThere were so many hints and inconsistencies that my head was literally spinning but being the curious person I am I still tried my very best to be perceptive and to collect all those little treats XD By the end of the book I felt like a suirrel gathering all the pieces until I was finally able to make sense of them lol And somehow I don’t even know how I actually did it ; PMaybe to watch eight seasons of “Castle” and all the Sherlock Holmes series and movies eventually paid off? Who knows? LOL All I know is that I solved the mystery and I’m so damn happy I’m still grinning and laughing like crazy24 hours after finishing the book XD ”Bughouse – that’s what this business is – bughouse”Yes I couldn’t agree and since I don’t want to spoil anyone who still wants to read the book I’ll write down my thoughts in this nice and tiny spoiler section lol Detectives you’ve been warned ; PThe solution and endingview spoiler ”If so and so is lying on what point are they lying and what is the reason for the lie?”I don’t even know how often I asked myself this uestion throughout the entire book it must have been pretty often though lol I was always certain that it was than one person who killed Ratchett and at some point I suspected everyone to be the murderer XD Even the doctor and the conductor Haha And I think it was exactly that moment when I finally realised that I was right because as soon as I thought it I instantly latched onto the conductors testimony and from there on everything fell into place ; I knew he must have lied and therefore been involved in the crime and then I thought about all those little hints I collected so carefully The weapon in the spongebag the mention of the actress the door that was open the incriminating pipe cleaner the familiarity between Colonel Arbuthnot and Mary Debenham the number of wounds on the victim and especially the remarkable difference of those mentioned stab wounds the list could go on and on lol Once I made the connection with the Princess it wasn’t all too hard to figure who the Countess was and after analysing every character that was on the train I came to the same conclusion as Poirot ; Sure there were some clues and hints I didn’t get but in the end it seems like I was able to find the most important ones XD I think the only thing I didn’t like was the ending It was rather abrupt and the righteous woman in me wasn’t okay with the way things were handled I mean yes it seems like Ratchett was a monster and they all had a very good reason to end his life Some than others I don’t like the idea that they were let off the hook so easily though I mean it was murder after all There should have been a conseuence If everyone would take the law into their hands our society would fall into pieces There’s a reason we have laws and courts Well that’s just my subjective opinion though I know some people will say it’s just a book and that’s okay with me ; I just felt a need to point it out because it really left a bad taste in my mouth XD Guess that’s the superhero in me speaking lol hide spoiler

    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 showThis story is set on a filled to capacity train heading from Stamboul Istanbul to London It's the middle of winter and the snow has built up on the tracks and forced the train to a standstill on it's way through Yugoslavia an area that is now in Croatia This is when the murder is discovered which luckily for me I can be impatient happens within the first 50 pagesThere are so many characters in this It was a little difficult to keep them all straight but Suchet's voices helped Let's start with the characters who aren't suspects We have naturally Hercule Poirot detective extraordinaire Monsieur Bouc the Wagon Lits director and Poirot's old friend Dr Constantine a doctor on the train Pierre Michel the conductor of the Stamboul Calais coach and Ratchett the victim Bouc is the one uick to jump to conclusions where as Poirot is very methodical and waits till he has all the information and all the clues fit before committing to the assignment of guilt Now for the possible murderers Of course all of the passengers on the train are suspects We have Hector Macueen Ratchett's secretary Edward Masterman Ratchett's valet Mrs Hubbard Greta Ohlsson Princess Dragamiroff and her maid Hildegarde Schmidt the Count and Countess Andrenyi Colonel Arbuthnot Mr Hardman Antonio Foscarelli and Mary Debenham There are lots of interviews collecting of evidence and taking notes I liked how Poirot Bouc and Dr Constantine kept going over the evidence with each other The repetition of the clues helped me keep track of all of them With so many suspects the evidence kept going in circles and making my head spin I had a few theories but for the first time ever one of them was right I didn't know why I was right until Poirot started to piece things together but once he did the answer was uite clear I felt like the conclusion was the proper way to end the story as wellAgatha Christie never fails to impress me with her ingenuity I plan on reading many of her novels in the near future As Poirot would say I pray you join me

    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 he will figure it out And a murder has taken place upon the Orient Express The man murdered in named Ratchett but we find out later on in the story this is an alias Poirot has simply uncovered that the murderer is on the train not escaped out the window into the snow they are trapped in as the murderer would want us to believe Poirot interviews all of the passengers makes a list and the little grey cells start to formulate Ten uestionsOn the paper was written Things needing explanation1 The handkerchief marked with the initial H Whose is it? 2 The pipe cleaner Was it dropped by Colonel Arbuthnot? Or by someone else?3 Who wore the scarlet kimono?4 Who was the man or woman masuerading in Wagon Lit uniform?5 Why do the hands of the watch point to 115?6 Was the murder committed at that time?7 Was it earlier?8 Was it later?9 Can we be sure that Ratchett was stabbed by than one person?10 What other explanation of his wounds can there be?Now I have already seen all of the shows and movies so I know what happened and I think the ending is bloody brilliant I'm not going to give out the spoiler to those that have not read this yet but I think it's the perfect murder and I loved the outcome And I was so proud and happy with Poirot's conclusion You will just have to read the book or watch the show to find out why I say that brilliant Then said Poirot having placed my solution before you I have the honour to retire from the case MY BLOG Melissa Martin's Reading List

    Murder on the Orient Express is one of Agatha Christie's most well known and beloved works Adapted for radio film and television in addition to inspiring countless authors most people have at least a cursory idea of the premise of this story A classic whodunit with Christie's signature styling this is one of the stories that sealed my fate as a ReaderI adore Hercule Poirot and grew up binging Christie's works I read this book as a child and of course have watched a couple of the movie adaptations In spite of that I still had a rollicking good time reading this again There is something so satisfying about the ending of this one I could never dream up a better conclusion I think if you are looking to get into Christie's books this is an excellent starting point as I feel it is a perfect example of her method
