A detailed "about the author" section
Murder on the Orient Express is a murder mystery featuring the famous detective Hercule Poirot. Poirot is on a cross-European train ride when a wealthy American passenger is killed in his cabin by a series of twelve knife blows. It turns out that the passenger was a notorious kidnapper.
The novel is divided into three parts: "The Facts", "The Evidence", and "Hercule Poirot Sits Back and Thinks".
"The Facts" begins with Hercule Poirot finishing up a case in Syria. He proceeds to Istanbul, where he plans to take the Orient Express to London. The train is unusually full. Poirot's friend, M. Bouc, a director of the train line who is traveling himself, manages to get Poirot a second-class berth.

interesting but lacking in-depth analysis
narrator was good however the analysis seems one-sided. it was mostly about the criticisms of the book not as much character analysis and plot development. I am tempted to check out the other analysis on this to see how it differs.
