With a cast of characters this large, you would expect this book to be confusing, and yet it is all so nicely presented it's easy to follow. Easy to follow, but hard to predict who is guilty and/or lying. An enjoyable read. ( )
This was a fun short read, and might even have hooked me on Agatha Christie.
The case generally held my interest although at times it felt as if the main character Poirot, too easily clutched at the right conclusions. Overall however, it wasn't a big issue. One more thing, I found it a bit confusing reading certain untranslated French phrases, though I was told this by no means had any impact on the plot.
I liked the ending as it caught me by surprise and I was satisfied. I'm excited for more!
Que final maravilhoso!
I loved the story and the plot so much. The writing style in 'And Then There Were None' appealed to me more, but the twists and turns in this one absolutely had me more gripped!
The book is filled with entertaining and descriptive events that will leave readers anticipating more.
Estambul, pleno invierno. Poirot decide tomar el Orient Express que en esta ├ępoca suele hacer su recorrido pr├ícticamente vac├şo. Pero aquel d├şa, el tren va lleno y s├│lo gracias a una buena amiga consigue una litera en el coche-cama. A la ma├▒ana siguiente se despierta, descubre que una tormenta de nieve ha obligado a detener el tren y que un americano, llamado Ratcher, ha sido apu├▒alado salvajemente. Aparentemente nadie ha entrado ni ha salido del coche-cama. El asesino, sin duda, es alguno de los ocupantes entre los que se encuentra una altiva princesa rusa y una institutriz inglesa.

Just after midnight, the famous Orient Express is stopped in its tracks by a snowdrift. By morning, the millionaire Samuel Edward Ratchett lies dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the inside. Without a shred of doubt, one of his fellow passengers is the murderer. Isolated by the storm, detective Hercule Poirot must find the killer among a dozen of the dead man's enemies, before the murderer decides to strike again.
