Book Review: Murder on the Orient Express (Hercule Poirot #10) by Agatha Christie

Murder on the Orient Express 

"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 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...

My Review: 
So i have to admit that i only buy and start this book right now because of the movie, i do not like to see a movie based on a book without reading the book first and when a friend invite me to go see this one i though i need to read it today! 

I really enjoy 99% of Christie books and i think her books have a easy writing and a way of capturing the reader attention. This one has a very interesting plot and for me at least a completely unexpected final. It happens to me in books from this genre, to suspect someone during all the book and do not change my mind, in this one it was the opposite i think i suspect all the characters at some point but i never could have guessed the solution to this mystery. 

The only thing i could point out that may be a downside for some people is the fact that this book does not have much action, the most part of the books are interviews and the main character (Poirot) doing his thinking and connecting dots. For me it was not a problem because i sometimes like a book that makes me think and i do not mind fewer action. 

I went to see the movie some days after i finish the read and i recommend it but again i have to just say THE BOOK WAS BETTER!

Gave this story 4,8 out of 5* and let me say that this was my favorite read of November. It was a book i could not put down from the moment i start it and i as so curious to know what would happen, i definitely recommend this book to all the readers that love a good mystery and also to those that like a book with many twists that made you think and rethink about all the possible scenarios that the plot is going to take.
