When I think of mysteries, some of the first things that come to mind are “Agatha Christie” and “Murder on the Orient Express.” It’s no surprise that, as one of Ms. Christie’s most famous works, Murder on the Orient Express was at the top of my reading list. I was a little disappointed when the story started out slowly, but a little ways in I realized why this particular undertaking of Hercule Poirot is so revered; for example, the characters are really developed (one would get to know the attributes of the characters if they were trapped on a train with a murderer in their midst), and everything is woven into a tale of suspense, deceit and uncertain motives.

Gripping but not graphic, complex but not obscure, Murder on the Orient Express is, I would say, a stimulating and enrapturing read perfect for a mystery lover who enjoys trying (and most likely failing) to solve the crime portrayed. A glorious compilation of plot twists awaits!
