I grew up with Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple on TV and remember reading a few of the novels as well, but that was a long time ago. I haven’t physically read a book by her in years and decided to try the audiobook this time and must say I enjoyed it a lot.

At the beginning it took me a few chapters to get used to the narrators french accent, but soon I was as utterly intrigued by the case and the very unique way of Hercule Poirot’s questioning.

I must admit there isn’t anyone else that does it quite like HP. His questioning tactics change with each  individual. And I realized that even more so when he mentioned it in the book itself. Sometimes he just asks yes and no questions, other times he wants to know about feelings and impressions. It’s quite fascinating.

This case in particular ended with quite a twist.

Also, with under 7 hours, this audiobook is a quick and easy read. Perfect for in-between, without feeling overwhelming or like a massive undertaking.

These books are simple but cleverly plotted and even more impressive since they were written in 1934. They are by far the most timeless crime novels to date. Because deep down the reasons for murder are still the same….

Murder on the Orient Express – Agatha Christie


“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.

    1. I really enjoyed it! The narrator was excellent, I just had to get used to his french accent – lol!! I think I’ll request a few more, his way of solving these cases are so unique. I really enjoyed it!

    1. I have no idea if my dad’s books are still in our basement at home. But listening to the audiobook was a fantastic alternative. 😀
