Book Review: Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie 


Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie

Murder/mystery; 265 pages 

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 

Summary: Hercule Poirot is a detective traveling by train across Europe to return to London after having business in Syria. With urgent business in London, he must return as soon as possible so he boards the Orient Express. As the train passed through Yugoslavia it got stuck in a snowbank  causing a delay. By the morning tragedy has struck the train. An American by the name of Ratchett was found murdered in his compartment. And the killer … Well, they believe the killer is still on the train.  

Review: I love mystery books, like a lot. This was the first Agatha Christie book I’ve ever read and it was life changing. She gives no obvious clues as to who the murderer is which keeps you guessing until the very end. And even then I was so wowed by the ending … I loved it. I’m so excited to read another one of her books now to see if she can stump me again. Highly recommend this book. I absolutely loved it. 

Next up is Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard! Time to see it it lives up to the hype.

  1. If you like Agatha Christie try Anna Katherine Greene. She inspired Christie! I love mystery novels too, and while AKG has a bit of a vintage tone (it’s old fashioned in language and plot, of course) they are excellent books. Free if you’ve got a Kindle. 😊
