Publisher's Summary

Agatha Christie's most famous murder mystery, recorded by the director and star of the blockbuster film adaptation, Kenneth Branagh.
Just after midnight, a snowdrift stops the Orient Express in its tracks. The luxurious train is surprisingly full for the time of the year, but by the morning it is one passenger fewer. An American tycoon lies dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the inside. Isolated and with a killer in their midst, detective Hercule Poirot must identify the murderer - in case he or she decides to strike again.

His accents are very good

Would you listen to Murder on the Orient Express again? Why?

I don't think so. I was reading the book at the same time as listening to it, so I hardly missed anything.

What did you like best about this story?

Everything is a clue! Damn it was too clever!!

Which character – as performed by Kenneth Branagh – was your favorite?

The sweedish woman. it was quite close to how it should sound. Anyhow what impressed me is that he utelized many aaccents that sounded very convincing!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Laugh when I got things right and at some other things.

Any additional comments?

Really good! And very fun!

Disappointing was expecting better

With her most famous book being read by such a thespian I wes expecting more from this narration.The narrative especially the first few chapters felt rushed,as though he was doing a practice read through before a scene.The accents were all over the place,which I don't think was helped by the strange voice he gave to the doctor,it was a wonder he hadn't lost his voice by the end! Although not terrible I now wish I had got the David suchet version

Great narration of a classic story

Kenneth Branagh does an excellent job of bringing to life the characters from one of Agatha Christie's most iconic works. Definitely worth listening to, even if you already know the story.

A classic story with a modern voice

The narrator did a great job with the characters and their voices. The narrator brought to life the individuals in such a way that really brought you into the story.
