Murder On The Orient Express by Agatha Christie (non-spoiler review)

Book: Murder On The Orient Express by Agatha Christie

Rating: 4 stars

Synopsis:

What more can a mystery addict desire than a much-loathed murder victim found aboard the luxurious Orient Express with multiple stab wounds, thirteen likely suspects, an incomparably brilliant detective in Hercule Poirot, and the most ingenious crime ever conceived?


INITIAL THOUGHTS

I used to love the Nancy Drew books and I also loved the Sherlock Holmes stories I read so of course I was excited to read this book. Also the movie recently came out so there was some motivation to read it as well.


PLOT

I mean I just love mystery books and this one agh. I flew through this book so quickly because I wanted to find out what happened. I loved reading about all the different characters and see Poirot find clues and it was awesome okay? Seriously though, the story develops so well and I really loved it.


EXECUTION

Everything progressed really nicely. The start was this slow build up and things got really interesting after the crime (well duh). It was a captivating book. I will say it isn’t as suspenseful as I had hoped it would be.
