Rated 4 out of 5 by from LOVED IT! I loved it from page one. Of course it's not as epic and intriguing as ''And then there were none'', but it was good enough and still intriguing. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who loves detective stories!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Remarkable Mystery Novel Many mystery novels have predictable plots, characters and endings. Agatha Christie’s, “Murder on the Orient Express”, contains none of the above. This wonderfully written novel contains a variety of characters, all contributing to the mystery of the novel. Clues and red herrings fill the chapters, never allowing the reader to fully unravel the mystery until the final pages. Following Christie’s mystery protagonist, Hercule Poirot, the reader gets a glimpse into the mind of a brilliant detective whose observation skills surpass us all. Set entirely within a train, Murder on the Orient Express will not disappoint the avid mystery reader, and will encourage more reads by the brilliant Agatha Christie.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gripping Mystery Classic One of Agatha Christie's most well-known novels, Murder on the Orient Express will leave you guessing until the very end. It is full of suspense and drama; you won't be able to put the book down. Besides the mystery, the novel also addresses the theme of personal justice when society fails to condemn a criminal. A must-read!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Poirot, the genius!!! Even if you are not a Christie reader, you MUST have this book. This novel features Agatha Christie's funny little Belgian detective, Hercule Poirot and Christie's readers, I am sure, know that this little man embodies exceptional intellectual ability. The ending is so damn surprising that it blows your mind away! This is my second favourite Christie novel, coming second to "And Then There Were None."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best book ever Murder on the Orient Express by Aghata Christie is a detective book where a man will be murdered in a train. In this train, leving from Istambul, most of the passagers are there for the same reason, killing a man who killed there little beloved Dasy Armstrong. What it's amazing about this book is that it's almost impossible to find out who murdered that man before the end of the book! You'll have to read it if you want to know who killed that man.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant! If you're a mystery fan and you haven't read this book, then you're missing out. Never-before has such a murder occured in a confined space! Each of the seventeen suspects has a link to the stabbed victim in one way or another giving them all a perfect motive. But who is the killer? Ten questions helps Poirot solve the case, but it would take many more for an average reader. With multiple twists, it is clear how this story is the favourite of Christie fans worldwide. This edition is also organized with a table of contents for each chapter, a character list, and a reader-friendly font size.
