THE MOST WIDELY READ MYSTERY OF ALL TIME—NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE DIRECTED BY KENNETH BRANAGH AND PRODUCED BY RIDLEY SCOTT!
“The murderer is with us—on the train now . . .”
Just after midnight, the famous Orient Express is stopped in its tracks by a snowdrift. By morning, the millionaire Samuel Edward Ratchett lies dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the inside. Without a shred of doubt, one of his fellow passengers is the murderer.
Isolated by the storm, detective Hercule Poirot must find the killer among a dozen of the dead man's enemies, before the murderer decides to strike again.
“What more . . . can a mystery addict desire?”—New York Times

User reviews about this book
Mostly dialogue--which I enjoyed
Christie does a great job of introducing and juggling an ensemble of characters.
The love this book -- I *HATE* the movie cover
Oh, what a travesty Kenneth Branagh wreaked on this book when he made the movie.... Poirot would not have resorted to fistucuffs. Anyway, please take the movie tie-in cover off, remove the "bonus" photos, and just give me back the edition I bought. I want to read the book the way Dame Agatha intended it to be read.
Amazing! 10/10 would recommend!
So I want this book in real life, now I was reading the sample, and first of all the author of this book must have done so much to make a stunning book! It leaves me on the edge of my seat! Second of all, if it is such a good book, that there is a movie filled with award winning actors, this book has GOT to be great! And finally I would totally recommend this book, and I hope to see th movie!

Hope the movie is better
This was decent. Very short. Not a lot of suspense because clues were collected quickly and all deductions made seemed to be accurate with one guess. The movie will probably have a lot of extras added in to draw it out and spice it up I bet.
9/14/17 Update: Do NOT Download
This update, that updated the cover art to advertise the upcoming Johnny Depp movie had a catastrophic effect on the text. The Dedication and Part One, of three parts, are deleted and the "Contents", "Bookmarks" and "Notes" cannot be accessed. In other words, at least one third of the novel is missing. The book was fine before the update. NEEDS FIXING!!!

Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express is by far one of the best murder mysteries I have ever read! The intricate overlap of characters, backgrounds, and motives make for a suspenseful read. The final chapter will leave you shocked and overwhelmed! A MUST read😆😁😝
You cannot keep this book out of your hand before u finish it. So smart, beautifully crafted. I LOVED IT. Recommend it to every single human being.
