Murder on the Orient ExpressMurder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Magnificent! There's a reason Dame Agatha was called the Queen of Crime... it's because she was an amazing writer. This is my first Christie read, and now I know what all the fuss is about. Her mysteries are just as fascinating on the page as they are on the screen, and Murder on the Orient Express is every bit as fantastic a puzzle to read as it is to view.

I love the wit and subtlety of the writing, the small telling touches that bring to life not only Hercule Poirot but all the other characters. It's all so effortless and captivating.

I'm thrilled to think how many wonderful Christie reads I now have ahead of me!
