Murder on the Orient Express

M is for Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie


orient express

Blurb: (from Goodreads) Just after midnight, a snowdrift stopped the Orient Express in its tracks. The luxurious train was surprisingly full for the time of the year. But by the morning there was one passenger fewer. A passenger lay dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the inside.

  1. Thanks Suzanne. I have the movie here on DVD which is quite good but somehow, the films are never as good as the books.

  2. I am a fan of Agatha Christie, but alas, only in television and film. I have yet to read any of her novels.
    I love the BBC television series of Poirot featuring David Suchet. I also adore the Peter Ustinov movies. I love the old Margaret Rutherford Miss Marple movies. The BBC did a Miss Marple series in the 90’s that was not well done. In the 2000’s, they did a wonderful Miss Marple.
    ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ is my least favorite Poirot story. It is the only one where Poirot is pissy, mean, and not at all charming. He comes across this way in Suchet’s version and also in the Albert Finney movie.
    My favorite Poirot is Ustinov’s ‘Evil Under the Sun’. 🙂

  3. You’re welcome, Melanie. I agree. The books are generally much better and far more detailed than the movies have time to be. Gone With the Wind is a prime example. The movie was great, but the book told so much more of the story. A great deal was left out of the movie.

    Books are more fun than movies any day. 🙂

    Have a blessed weekend!
