Yes, you saw well. I just gave 4.5 / 5 to a Agatha Christie book. How is it possible? I will tell you right now.
Murder on the Orient Express is an extrodinary book which I liked very much, but the reason I gave it 4.5 out of 5 stars is that I did nort like the first part.
The book is devided in a few parts, but the first one is – bored me. That’s all I dod not like.
I don’t know for sure if the author gave us enough proofs to find the murder before Poirot did, but I couldn’t even think that the book will end this way. I was fascinated …like always. The book isn’t hard to read, but It is hard to solve the mistery.
I think that The murder on the Orient Express is the most complicated crime that Agatha has ever created. The criminal even tricked Poirot a few times.
While reading the book I was thinking if I could ever kill Ratchett someone so cruely, even thought he really deserved it.
At the end, Poirot tells us two ways to solve this case, but if Bouc choose to belive the first one, I chose the second version. I always liked complex things .
My edition even has a few pictures, which look pretty good.
I really recommend this book to you, guys. If you read it I can’t wait to
hear read you opinions on it.
