Murder on the Orient Express

Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie

A classic murder mystery, that is Agatha Christie at her finest.  Hercule Poirot solving a mystery involving 12 potential murders is classic and intertwines all the characters in the best way possible.

I could list the cast of characters, but that gets turned around and exposed as lies for the majority of them.  The subplot of each character on the train is two-fold and great story telling.  I think that is what makes this tale so great, a series of what appears to be coincidences yet you know there cannot be that many coincidences.  Figuring out all the connections is the real mystery.

I don’t know how I missed reading this book along the way, but I needed to read it before seeing the movie.  Now, I am afraid to see  movie, because I know the movie will not do it justice.   I highly recommend reading the book, I can’t begin to explain all the characters in any manner that would do them justice.
