Murder on the Orient Express [adaptation - graphic novel]

No current Talk conversations about this book.
I love Sherlock Holmes, just enjoy the character, his precise skits and the crazy figure that minimizes the story all around.
But I didn't have a book of Holmes, so I took another.
I was in a mood for an old-fashioned thriller. I wanted a steam train, a severe lack of political correctness, a gallery of circus figures that included counties and princesses, and an old-style detective with no too fucked-up life that interrogates and finally explains to the public the way he came to the solution. All this and more I have found here, in this flawed and fun thriller that, though written decades ago, was amusing and surprising to me, and at the end, it was interrupted in a moment when a great moral stench rose from it and challenged me, mainly because I agreed with it unconditionally.
It was a pleasure, but I still prefer Sherlock Holmes.

The world's most famous murder story, newly adapted into a vibrant comic strip for new generations of thrill-seeking sleuths to enjoy. 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. Famed for her crime masterpieces, Agatha Christie's books have become the best-selling in the world, appealing to readers young and old for their ingenious plots and immediately recognizable characters. The stories have also transcended the printed page, become bestselling audiobooks and award-winning films, plays and television series. Now words and pictures combine in an exciting new way of telling these stories - full-colour graphic novels which enhance the original stories and offer a completely new way of enjoying some of the world's most popular and exciting mysteries.
