Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie

My Review


“The impossible could not have happened, therefore the impossible must be possible in spite of appearances.”

I am making my way through all of Christie's novels slowly but surely. I find them to be such easy reading. You can just sit down and read them without really thinking too much which sometimes really is just what you need. I love my classics but you really do need to pay those books your full attention if you sit down to read somebody like Austen or Bronte.
In this book , Hercule Poirot finds himself aboard The Orient Express amid a cast of flamboyant characters. A surly american gentleman that nobody has really warmed to is murdered in his cabin overnight and it is down to Poirot to discover the culprit. 
All the witnesses claim to have seen a short porter with a feminine voice bustling about who apparently doesn't fit the description of anybody employed on the train.
The murder really does end up looking quite impossible but eventually the truth is figured out by the one and only Hercule Poirot!
