“The impossible could not have happened, therefore the impossible must be possible in spite of appearances.”
Caution, mild spoilers ahead.
I may be biased in my evaluation of this book. Mainly, because it has been some time that I read a book that I enjoyed from the first page till the last and wanted to read in one sitting. It had been months since I had a really good read. But then again, it was infallible Agatha Christie and her Hercule Poirot.
I must say I had committed a crime in a reader circle. I watched the movie before reading the book. But… I was still intrigued. It was entertaining and captivating. Agatha Christie knew how to keep the suspense till the end and make an incredible murder story out of a trip on the Orient Express.
This is one of the books that no matter the ending, no matter how and who did it, you will take the ride only to enjoy the trip. Because Agatha Christie will keep the mystery till the end and there will be so many turns in the story that you will be confused and lost and, in the end, you will smack yourself on the head saying “This is what I thought all along” or “How didn’t I see this coming?”.
For all the lovers of detective stories and fans of Agatha Christie, this is an absolute must and I only hope that you will enjoy it as much as I did.
