I am currently reading Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie. I have been wanting to read this book for a while now but the recent release of the film adaptation really made me go out and buy it. It had been recommended to me a lot as it is a crime book however it is written in a great way. The story is a great mystery. How did this crime happen and who did it?
I have read about half of the book so far and I really like it. The format of the book really helps to keep you intrigued as it is split into sections of the investigation. Chapters based off of how they are completing the investigation. Each interview is given its own time to be said and explored. The idea of the crime is also so very exciting. It seems like an impossible crime and being able to read on the find out all the clues and discoveries is very exciting.
It is a very intricate storyline with the ‘impossible’ crime having to be explained and figured out. I am surprised the book is as small as it is due to this and how they managed to fit this investigation into that amount of pages.
I am really excited to finish reading this book, I would say more than usual as it is a story I have become invested into. I am looking forward to exploring who commited the crime and how they did it.
I know this is a short blog post but I Just wanted to share what I am reading currently and how I would recommend to anyone who haven’t read it to do so. It is a great book and I have heard great things for the rest of the book.
Many thanks, Caitlin x
