Reading, for me, is entertainment and an escape from the real world. But it can also inform and stretch the boundaries of the life I live.

Murder on the Orient Express

Murder on the Orient Express CD: Murder on the Orient Express CD - Agatha Christie, Dan Stevens

This was my first Agatha Christie and it was a lot of fun! I really liked Poirot's style, with his little tricks in interviewing witnesses and his smartass way of dealing with his co-investigators, if you can call them that. Dan Steven's performance in narrating this audiobook is fantastic, with his ability to give life and individuality to each character. The final whodunnit came as a surprise, and although this may be due to the constraints in tracking clues in an audio presentation, it seems more likely that it is just a well plotted mystery, because the ending did not feel like a cheat. 

 

Many thanks to Jennifer's Books, whose excellent review prompted me to finally try Agatha Christie.
