Monday Book Review - Murder on the Orient Express

Welcome to Monday and this week's book recommendation.



Detective Hercule Poirot is on his way home when his detective skills are once again called into service.  It's overnight on the Orient Express when a murder occurs, one that leaves so many questions the case seems unsolvable... at least for someone other than Poirot.

I love a good mystery, and I've been meaning to read MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS for a long time. It doesn't disappoint. The murder is complex, the motive far reaching and the clues add up to a solution that doesn't seem to make any sense. I loved it. It was entertaining and stimulating as I tried to put the pieces together before Poirot. Of course, I did not succeed. But that's the sign of a really good mystery. A perfect puzzle. 

If you're a mystery fan and you've never read this classic, definitely make sure you do. And if you've never read a mystery, this a great one to start on, I'm sure it will make you a fan of the genre.
