Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie

Categories

12/07/2011 Categories: classic murder mystery

Hercule Poirot, a quirky detective, is trapped on the famed Orient Express, a famous luxury train. Unfortunately, being the type to often become stuck in the oddest situations, a murder has occurred and Hercule must get to the bottom of it--with the murderer still on the train. 

It was interesting, to say the least; I felt like although the words and writing style were poignant, it was a bit boring and felt a bit rushed. The hints throughout the book were TOO well hidden, and at the end when Hercule Poirot spilled the secrets of the mystery, it felt like it was altogether too much information at once. 

I would recommend the book to anyone who enjoys classics or mysteries (or both) and has a higher reading level (e.g. high school). Preferably Sherlock Holmes fans, because if you're used to the language of Doyle, reading Agatha Christie will be a breeze.
