"The murderer is with us - on the train now...."

Best Possible Version of the Classic Whodunit

Don’t be misled by the “Movie Tie-In” in the title. This is not a novelization of Branagh’s movie of Murder on the Orient Express. It is the original novel read by the best possible reader, Kenneth Branagh. As those who have listened to his version of Heart of Darkness know, Branagh can handle both narration and a wide variety of characters with absolute clarity and profound expression. This is a light work, but it is great fun, and Branagh performs it flawlessly.

A Perfect Read Apart from the Americans

I'm a great admirer of Kenneth Branagh as an actor and was thrilled to get his reading of my most re-read Agatha Christie. His reading is of course first rate so far as Poirot and the Europeans, but the American accents on Mrs. Hubbard and Hector MacQueen are a distracting absurdity that really breaks your focus every time it occurs. You're no longer listening to the text but at that weird verbal mash many Brits do as an American accent. This is surprising in that Branagh did a superb California accent 25 years ago in Dead Again. I can't imagine what happened, but it's not good.
Speaking of Mr. MacQueen, Christie repeats many times what a likable and affable young man he is. Perhaps Branagh was thinking of his movie casting, because none of that comes through.
