Publisher's Summary

Just after midnight, a snowdrift stopped the Orient Express in its tracks. The luxurious train was surprisingly full for the time of the year. But by the morning there was one passenger fewer. An American lay dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the inside.

Critic Reviews

"Need it be said, the little grey cells solve once more the seemingly insoluble. Mrs Christie makes an improbable tale very real, and keeps her readers enthralled and guessing to the end." (Times Literary Supplement)

The only real Poirot David Suchet

Would you consider the audio edition of Murder on the Orient Express to be better than the print version?

Yes, because of Suchet. He is the real deal as Hercule Poirot. I have one other audio version of this book, but it does not compare to this one.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Murder on the Orient Express?

At the end when Poirot Show`s everyone why he is Poirot.

What does David Suchet bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Everything! I first listened to a Hercule Poirot mystery red by David Suchet about one year ago, when I listened to Death on the Nile. I was smiling the whole time listening to the book. Suchet is a great actor, you can really hear it. He brings every character to life in a great way, not just Poirot.

Amazing!

Christie is an flawless writer! Her stories make you guess and it feels like you are on the Edge of your Seat! Poirot is an super cool and interesting character and David Suchet who actually plays him in countless movies makes this experience Even better!!

Delightful!

Old favourite, beautifully read by David Suchet (for many Christie fans, the definitive Poirot). Lovely audio book!

Wonderful

If you could sum up Murder on the Orient Express in three words, what would they be?

Captivating, thoughtful, enjoyable.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Murder on the Orient Express?

Mrs. Hubbard - just a quirky character.

What does David Suchet bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Everything. Loved Suchet in the series but hadn't realised his skills in bringing a book to life before. Such a wide variety of accents and voices - really wonderful. Such nuances can easily be missed in the book.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

That would give too much away.

Any additional comments?

Can't recommend this audio enough. If you love Suchet then you can't go wrong plus this has some subtle but important differences to the TV version.

A Classic Murder portrayed Fantastically

What did you like most about Murder on the Orient Express?

The novel is so wonderfully played out, with the classic reveal at the end, the hidden pasts and deadly secrets. A fantastic listen, extremely entertaining

What did you like best about this story?

The novel of "Murder on the Orient Express" is far superior to the televised version. The original capture Poirot's own love of Justice not the law. It was a fascinating study of what is right and what is lawful.

Have you listened to any of David Suchet’s other performances? How does this one compare?

David Suchet is the embodiment of Poirot and his performance brings this novel to life in a new and revitalising way.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely! It was fascinating and reverting.

great as usual

very easy to listen to. at times I found myself getting confused as to whether Poirot or the other French character was speaking... but that's acceptable, given they both have similar accents :-)

An interesting take on whether vigilante revenge and violence is ever justified....
