“Murder on the Orient Express” by Agatha Christie

I have another book crossed off my list. This was one of those books that was made into a movie and I wanted to make sure I read the book before I watched the movie. The only bad thing I can say about this book is that the end was spoiled for me before I got to finish it. I enjoyed the book very much, just like I did the other books I’ve read from Agatha Christie. It just bothers me when someone spoils the ending before I’m finished reading. I don’t normally do that to someone else unless they give me their permission first. Anyway, the book was still great enjoyable. I’m now considering reading some more books from Agatha Christie after reading this and a couple of others.

Synopsis: “The murderer is with us—on the train now . . .”

Just after midnight, the famous Orient Express is stopped in its tracks by a snowdrift. By morning, the millionaire Samuel Edward Ratchett lies dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the inside. Without a shred of doubt, one of his fellow passengers is the murderer.

Isolated by the storm, detective Hercule Poirot must find the killer among a dozen of the dead man’s enemies, before the murderer decides to strike again.

  1. I knew this was based on a book but I had no idea it was an Agatha Christie book. I love her work. I haven’t read the book but I watched the movie. The movie was actually really good and the twist at the end was awesome. It was one of those movies where I thought I predicted the ending the entire time but was surprisingly wrong. I may have to give the book a try. How was the ending spoiled for you? Do you recommend the book to someone who already watched the movie?

    1. I was watching an episode of NCIS and one of the characters on that show told another character how the book ended before I could change the channel on the tv. I haven’t watched the movie yet because I wanted to read the book first (it’s typical for me to read a book before I see the movie that’s based on that book). I would recommend reading the book, it is a great read anyway.
