#ThrowbackThursday Murder On The Orient Express by Agatha Christie

Throwback thursday (4).png

Renee @It’sBookTalk began this Throwback Thursday meme as a way to share some of our old favorites as well as sharing books that we’re FINALLY getting around to reading that were published over a year ago. I’ve wanted to join this meme for a long time and I thought it would be a great idea because it forces me to read books from the TBR and not only new releases. And, of course, I can also include some old favorites!

Just after midnight, the famous Orient Express is stopped in its tracks by a snowdrift. By morning, the millionaire Samuel Ratchett lies dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the inside. One of his fellow passengers must be the murderer. Isolated by the storm and with a killer in their midst, detective Hercule Poirot must find the killer amongst a dozen of the dead man’s enemies, before the murderer decides to strike again…

Murder on the Orient Express was the first book I read by Agatha Christie. I was probably 11 or 12 years old and excited about  reading “adult” books. I absolutely loved it and I still think about it sometimes. I haven’t read it since then but I’ve watched two film versions (not yet the recent one) and I’ve discussed its plot many times. It’s that good.

I think it’s a story that I will forever remember, and it’s not even my favorite by Agatha Christie, but it’s undoubtedly a classic. It’s memorable and surprising and well, I love Poirot (although I also hate him sometimes). The setting it’s perfect and the ending is one of those you will surely remember all your life.

I think this is a book that everyone should read.

    Like Renee, I’ve never read Agatha Christie. That seems crazy especially since when I was a teen I was really into mysteries. I’d like to think I’ll go back and read a few!
